“Know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” (James 4:4)
[Article updated 6/13/15]
It seems to me that the intentional spreading of wolves into all of the areas where they were formerly extirpated from is one of the most significant and visible signs that we are indeed entering the time of God’s final judgment on this earth.
Confronted with an imploding economy, escalating wars in the middle east, and hungry wolves at our doorstep (of the two and four footed kind), the most reasoned and rational among us are debating solutions and seeking answers. Many people are growing increasingly frightened and are generally reacting in one of two ways: 1) they are building bunkers and preparing for war, or 2) they are ingesting drugs and alcohol and filling their lives with trivialities in order to drown out all the scary news.
An unprecedented increase in gun sales, drug use (legal and illegal), and alcohol sales all across America provides ample evidence to back up my claim. Unfortunately, even those people who can describe the nightmare in great detail, although they often attract a lot of attention to themselves, often fall woefully short when it comes to interpreting or explaining circumstances or events. Many see wolves spreading across our landscape much in the same way they see the Muslim hordes spreading across large swaths of the planet, as an inconvenience at best, or just another enemy to be confronted and defeated at worse. Most, if not all, of our “leaders”, while claiming to be champions of righteousness, more often than not prove themselves to be empty vessels, clanging gongs, arrogant, belligerent, prideful fools.
For the past thirty years or so I’ve been publishing information exposing the agenda of the “green” movement and its connection to global politics. Some of my work is still archived in various internet memory vaults, while most of it has simply vanished into cyber obscurity. Some of what I wrote helped a few people change their way of thinking. However, I am under no illusions when it comes to the fact that the vast bulk of my efforts failed to make much of a difference because they were incomplete and imperfect attempts to explain reality. This latest rant is no different. I am compelled to write about what I see, even though it be through a glass, darkly.
Environmentalists, atheists, and pagans, view death and dying as a perfectly acceptable and very natural part of the world. They define “sin”, or “evil”, not as disobedience to a Creator God, but as a lack of knowledge resulting in errors in judgment that negatively affect the natural world. In the radical “green” mind the only thing standing in the way of a self-sustaining perfect world is humanity itself. Therefore, the only solution (according to them), is to mitigate and eventually eliminate all human impacts.
Rolling back human development and promoting “wildness” requires elevating nature and the needs of predator species, such as wolves, over man. REWILDERS believe that if the world can be returned to a natural state where mankind is but a visitor leaving only dry bones and virtually no footprints, there would be no reason to believe in God, and no legitimate excuse for God’s judgement.
That said, I am equally concerned that technocrats and progressives have an equally warped view of reality. In their zeal to demonstrate the capacity to achieve dominance over nature through science and innovation, these folks hope to mitigate the effects of a decaying world (entropy) by organizing and controlling all aspects of human activity through “good” governance and social engineering.
So-called “christian” dominionists take it one step further, by suggesting that mankind can somehow “reverse the curse” God placed on His creation as described in Genesis 3. These folks want to guide humanity along a self-righteous path of their own imaginations where the world just keeps getting better because they want it to.
Dominionists and technocrats generally believe that a code of universal rules or “guidelines” coupled with advancing technology and corporatism will eventually enable mankind to create a “sustainable” world out of one that has been rendered un-sustainable by the hand of God. Regarding such arrogance, God tells us in the book of Leviticus:
“I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your [high] ways shall be desolate.” Lev 26:22
In the book of 1 Samuel, God says,
“I will give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.” [1 Sam 17:46]
In judging sinful man and a fallen world, God has decreed that
“…their dead bodies shall be for meat unto the fowls of the heaven, and to the beasts of the earth.” [Jer 34:20]
And in the very last book of the Bible, God sends forth the Pale Horse Rider with the power over one fourth of the earth…
“…to kill with the sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” [Rev 6:8]
Anyone with eyes to see should be able to discern the times we are living in. The nightly news is chock full of countless examples of how men have indeed become as dumb brute beasts, speaking “evil of the things that they understand not” [2 Peter 2:12] and “corrupting themselves” in all manner [Jude 1:10]. Has anyone else noticed that at the very same time the elites of the world are struggling to enact global unity and conformity schemes, divisions and conflicts are on the rise? Is this just some sort of ironic coincidence? What is it that causes men to behave as “dumb brute beasts” or arrogant prideful fools? Lack of knowledge? Or is it something much more innate, much more integral to our being, like say, a sinful nature?
Everyone who reads this little rant of mine must discern for themselves if God is real or not, and if real, then they must decide if He is worthy of praise and reverence, or if He should be flat out rejected. Each person must decide whether the God of the Bible is some fanatic blood thirsty petty little deity who causes pain and suffering without reason, or if, as the scriptures say, He is Holy, Just, Merciful and True.
The scriptures tell us that a time is coming when every man shall raise his hand against his own brother and many will become food for the beasts of the earth. We are warned not to put our hope or trust in the things of this world. We are implored to repent, to turn from our wicked ways and give praise to God who sent his Son Jesus to pave the way for life everlasting in a brand new creation. Those who choose to ignore the warning signs will reap the whirlwind. As for me and my house, we will worship the Lord.
“And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this; But hast lifted up thyself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified.” [Daniel 5:22-23]
“In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain.” [Daniel 5:30]
