Our State of Affairs: Nationally and Spiritually Pt. 1

As the old expression goes, "All is not well in Denmark" - Hamlet made that remark in the Shakesperrean play of the same name, and in that line, he expressed the sense and recognition that there were unknown actions and deeds just beneath the surface of his world that were immoral, corrupt and lent towards the obscene and illegitimate acquisition of power.

Later he found out that his uncle had murdered the King (Hamlet's father), to acquire the throne and satisfy his lustful ambitions to have the King's own wife, Gertrude.

Human nature never changes and its the same willful, sin-laden propulsions that drive humanity today as they ever did. I could go on and on about how the acquisition of power foments deeper and greater corruption in beings that are inherantly corrupt (angelic and human alike), but I think we are all quite aware of this truth, particularly where the human governments of this world are concerned, and specifically the administration of D.C. for several decades, even centuries now.

This corruption is rotting our nation from the inside out and there doesn't appear to be any immediate change or cure for bettering this condition, to say nothing of actually healing it!

We can examine the dismanteling of the checks and balances of the three branches of our government (Executive, Legislative and Judicial) that leaves power in the hands of the few who enjoy impunity and are not accountable to 'We the People'.

We could discuss the economic woes of the financial structures and institutions that were once rock solid and the veritable stability of our monetary wealth here in this country.

We can discuss the moral free-fall of the living souls that populate the cities all across America and how a condition of 'lawlessness' is the rule today.

What is both bewildering and heart breaking is, that we see the church here in America is little different than the nation! Whereas the bride of Christ is to be a chaste virgin, walking in purity, donning the robes of righteosness and the garment of salvation and walking in sanctification, set apart and distinct from the world - its virtually a mirror image of the world!
Are we not to be living in conformity to Christ? To bear His image, and not the world's?

America has seen bad times before and somehow managed to survive and make a come back, you may say, and you'd be right. Yet today is a different picture. Am I saying that America is doomed, that its about to be wiped out, or deteriorate to such a degree as to become a non-power in the world?

Not exactly, although such an idea is far more feasible than most of us would believe. America will survive, but as a different creature. Our Constitution will be abrogated by a more globally acceptable document of singular governance. We won't 'be' Americans any more. Any distinction of God-given rights and the freedom that our Constitution employed in each of America's citizens as 'sovereigns' individually (I bet not one American out of a hundred, maybe even a thousand could even explain what this means!) will be removed, and rights will become 'privileges' doled out by a government that will reward the politically correct and chasten those that stand for individual freedom of thought and belief.

We are in a state of transition and are about to go through some tremendous upheavals that will rock the citizenry of America to such a point of frightful desperation that we will look to the government to save us from this impending peril, and willing to compromise anything for the sake of stability and security!

We have gone from being the world's leading 'lender nation' to the world's leading 'debtor nation'. We currently owe so much money borrowed from other nations, particularly the Asian block (China, Japan and others) that should they decide to call in their markers, the flimsy infrastructure of our finances would fall to ruin. Not only so, but the money in U.S. dollars that China holds is about to get traded in for a different currency, and should China decide to do this, other nations in the Asian block and elsewhere will follow suit, and this spells economic ruin for us.

A BBC report stated as follows:

"China's central bank has called for a new global reserve currency run by the International Monetary Fund to replace the US dollar.
Central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan did not explicitly mention the dollar, but said the crisis showed the dangers of relying on one currency.
With the world's largest currency reserves of $2tn, China is the biggest holder of dollar assets."

America: Leading Debtor Nation and What It Means

I believe the primary reason for the strength or weakness in any national economy today is predicated on those who control what is known as a central bank and utilize a fiat currency. What is a central bank? Or a fiat currency? To understand these terms, and the difference between a financial problem and a monetary problem, please review the information at the following site:

(Note: In Chapter 10 "The MONEY Makers" of this online source, Peter Drucker is named as a "spokesman for the oligarchy in America"; this is the same Peter Drucker who formed the Christian Leadership Network, and whose members are the 'Who's Who" of the Emergent Church Movement such as Brian McLaren and Rob Bell! What has a man, presumably a Christian leader who established a 'network' for Christian Leadership doing by involvement with such enterprises as managing America's economy?! See the quote below)

The MONEY Makers

SECRETS of the FEDERAL RESERVE

Peter Drucker, spokesman for the oligarchy in America, declared in an article in the Saturday Evening Post in 1948, that:

"RUSSIA IS THE IDEAL OF THE MANAGED ECONOMY TOWARDS WHICH WE ARE MOVING."

If you gain an understanding of what a "managed economy" is, you will then realize where the danger lies in a central bank that utilizes a fiat currency! Bottom line is that a central bank without due process and authorization by a government representative of the people's wishes is beyond the reach and accountability of the citizenry of any nation. They can manipulate the money system towards the advantage of 'the power elite' at the decided disadvantage of the working class of the nation.

A fiat currency is a currency backed by nothing; not gold or silver or any other precious (read that scarce) commodity. In order for something to have intrinsic value there must be some measure of scarcity so that it retains value. Sand would make a poor commodity; so would hay, or copper as these are too plentiful in supply to carry monetary power.

When you or I want to make money, we have to work for it. What the government has to do to make money is print the face of a dead president on some fancy plated paper for mere pennies. It costs them virtually nothing to print money, but we have to earn it!

So if the Federal Reserve decides to print money in vast amounts, this lessens the value of each dollar and as a result of its decreased spending power, it takes more money to pay for the same goods; thus inflation. And debt. We used to measure our national debt in billions of dollars - today the debt has reached the astronomical heights of 14.3 trillion dollars and increasing $100,000 about every minute! How long can this go on until the entire system collapses?

For the brief explanation of all this, please read the following:
The Federal Reserve-The Engine of Power

For more detailed information on the C.F.R. and Professor Quigly that their relationships with the monetary methods of our nation and the entire globe see the following:

MONEY OUT OF NOTHING

Suffice it to say that sorrow and tragedy are ahead and it would be wise for those in this predicament to get out of debt, attempt some savings using commodities that retain their value, and even to store up some food stuffs and other necessaries for that dark 'rainy day' ahead.
Alright, enough about the financial woes of our nation.

UPDATE: 3-16-11

Barry Eichgreen's article reveals and substantiates what we've been seeing for a long while now and indicative of a major non-linearity coming to us in the not too distant future:

Why The Dollar's Reign is at an End

Next topic -

America: The Great Melting Pot, as its been called. We all came here from somewhere else, from different countries and cultures, but those ancestors that brought us here had a dream of becoming Americans, where freedom ruled and prosperity was possible.
We are not in the same situation today with immigration escalating to new heights - today's immigrants have little or no interest in becoming American. They retain their own culture, their own language, loyalty to their own nations; but they are interested in America - or more specifically, her money!

This is being allowed in the name of multi-culturalism, which is a tool used by the Goblins (Globalists) to degrade nationalism and patriotism; its the intent and purpose of the power elite to shift a person's loyalty to one's nation to that of an economic status and being loyal to whoever provides that (which today and tomorrow is and will be the Globalized Economy, starting with the various 'Unions' being put into place).

Yet multi-culturalism is not the only degrading force that America is facing as a result of liberal immigration; scores of illegals crossing our borders are also criminals on their own side of the border!

"In fiscal year 2009, CAP failed to identify 890 criminal aliens eligible for removal from the United States, according to the report. These criminals had been incarcerated in facilities in Texas and California and were released back into U.S. society."

Illegal Convicts with Records Released Into US Population

Some of these people crossing our borders are military with unauthorized access into our nation! Two hundred and sixteen incursions over the last ten years, possibly more! One confrontation with the Mexican military here in Tucson, AZ resulted in many of our Border Patrol agents being fired upon! Local and State protests directed towards our own Federal Government were met with deaf ears.

Mexican Military Unauthorized Incursions Into USA

On top of this, the push for amnesty for illegals is only increasing.
Even as 2010 was coming to a close, an article written about George Soros and his endorsement and financial backing of organizations that supported his own O.S.I. (Open Society Institute) shows the overwhelming landslide that threatens to wash away the sovereignty of our own nation by flooding (even more so than even now) our nation with illegals, who with a stroke of a pen will become citizens of a greater political entity that would encompass Canada, the US and Mexico -

Socialist Organizations Funded by G. Soros

To learn more about George Soros and his objectives, see the following article:

The Progressive War

In the above article it states:
"David Kupelian, managing editor of WorldNetDaily.com and editor of Whistleblower magazine calls Soros a �God-hating atheist, a self-hating Jew, a capitalism-hating socialist, and an America-hating globalist.� That is just the start. He supports euthanasia, legalizing drugs, socialism, gay rights and global governance. He opposes free enterprise, Israel (even though he is a Jew) and U.S. sovereignty. He wants to devalue the U.S. dollar, telling the Financial Times in October 2009 that �an orderly decline of the dollar is actually desirable,� even though Americans would suffer if it were to happen.

Soros wants to replace the U.S. dollar as the world�s reserve currency and replace it with �a new currency system." If that were to happen it would have a catastrophic effect on the U.S."*

* Note - Glenn Beck is quoted throughout this article, and we do not endorse Mr. Beck's religious views, but will use him as a news source where his information is verified.

While all this is happening on our southern border, the northern area of our nation, particularly in Michigan and specifically the Dearborn area, as well as Saylorsburg, PA are experiencing greater and more aggresive Islamic interactions and infiltrations:

Such infractions against the freedom of speech and freedom of religion of Americans, when they are peacefully and amiably expressing their faith, all because they are doing so in an Islamic majority area like Dearborn, MI, at an Arab Festival are increasing in intensity and without justification.

Note here in this video that the Christians are being arrested due to charges that are a part of the police record, cited at the beginning of the clip:

Acts17Apologetics Returns to Dearborn Arab Festival

And in Saylorsburg, PA there are alarming developments by way of a compound, funded, built and maintained by Turkish men and led by a one Fethulah Gulen, owner and operator of the compund and a multi-billionaire.

"Christian militias have been raided in Michigan and Ohio. Its members rounded up and tossed in prison. Its cache of weapons confiscated.
But a well-armed Muslim militia � composed not of American citizens but foreign militants � operates under the noses of federal and state law enforcement officials.

"If you doubt it, pay a visit to Saylorsburg, PA, in the heart of the Pocono Mountains.
�These guys use fully automatic weapons � AK-47s - for target practice,� one local businessman says. �We called the FBI but nothing has been done to stop them.�
�The Muslims have been here for years,� another resident says. �They�ve been engaged in training for guerilla warfare.�
The Muslims in question are Turks who occupy a 45 acre compound that is owned and operated by Fethullah Gulen."

Read more about this here:

ISLAMIC SOLDIERS in PENNSYLVANIA

"He (Mr. Fethullah) has also established over 90 Islamic schools (madrassahs) throughout the United States, where students are indoctrinated in the tenets of political Islam. These charter schools are funded by American taxpayers.
"The purpose of every Gulen school, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, is to train Muslim students to become lawyers, accountants, and political leaders so that they can take an active part in the restoration of the Ottoman Empire and the Islamization of the Western World."

While all this is going on: political, economic and social unrest, it seems America is sitting on a catastrophic time bomb just waiting to detonate. Americans are already angry over the state of the nation; what's going to happen once the Federal Government decides to pass Amnesty laws? Or these Islamic forces within our borders decide to take action? Or the economic plight of our country is finally accomplished to the point of ruin?

Chaos? Riots? Violence? How will such things be controlled so as to not escalate into total destruction? Would you believe Internment Camps? Yet who will occupy these camps? Illegal Mexicans? That's what the government claims that such camps are for; yet today they are nominally empty of such. Then who are they for?

In reality that remains to be seen, and yet its not such an outrageous supposition that Christians who uphold and declare the Word of Truth, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the only Savior of the world who shed His own Holy Blood on behalf of mankind and his sin; Christians who would deny any authority that would deny their own God-given right to their allegiance to God and His Word might one day find themselves in such facilities!

John Whitehead from the Ruthorford Institute:

". . . recently Halliburton publicly announced that the Bush Administration had awarded a $385 million contract to its subsidiary, Kellogg Brown and Root, to build American detention facilities. Ironically, these facilities are not being built in discreet locations around the globe to house captured terrorists or even so-called �enemy combatants.� They are being built on American soil.

"Although the government and Halliburton have failed to offer details as to where or when these domestic detention centers will be built, they have offered justifications for their future existence. According to the government contract, these Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities, as they are formally named, are being built to prepare for �an emergency influx of immigrants, or to support the rapid development of new programs� in the event of other emergencies such as �natural disasters.� In other words, with such fluid language, these detention camps could be used for anyone�including political dissidents."

"As I�ve written before (www.rutherford.org), in the 1980s and 1990s under President Reagan, FEMA, a relatively unknown agency, morphed into what some call a �shadow government.� FEMA lost its identity as a federal agency focused on disaster relief to an underground agency dedicated to some of the nation�s most secret plans of countering civil unrest and ensuring the stability of power in government."

For more on this 'shadow government' watch this series of video clips (four in total; on youtube they should automatically play all of them in succession at the link provided below) with Grant Jeffrey and Alex Jones (note: I tend to be cautious re: Mr. Jones and his flambuoyant nature, and his eschatological views, but as a news source, I have found him on the 'cutting edge' of events. I do not necessarily endorse everything stated by Mr. Jones or his views).

SHADOW GOV'T UPCOMING?

I understand that all of this is a rather BIG pill to swallow; much of it seems conjectural and unsubstantiated - except for those who know their Bibles and particularly prophecy.

I've said this time and time again: if one looks around at the state of affairs in this world, then looks at what the Bible says will transpire in the last days, then conducts a little navigational experiment (how do we get from where we are today, to where the Bible says we will be in the last days prior to Christ Jesus' Return?); that navigational exercise will lead you along a path that is parallel, if not IDENTICAL to what's happening, and what's going to happen in our near future!

And yet where is the church here in America? What is her condition, and what is her level of preparedness for these coming tumultuous times ahead?

Good question; I shall leave that for part 2 of this article.
