MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN – The Writing on the Wall

“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)

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.

“Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.”

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 and 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?

Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.  [Psalm 96:13]

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]

    Another excellent, well made point!!

    I pray people that read your missive understand II Chronicles 7:14 when it says: “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray, and seek My Face and turn from their wicked ways, then I shall hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and will heal their land.”

    This scripture begs the questions: Who are God’s people? If we’re God people, will we humble ourselves and pray? Will we seek His Face and turn from our wicked ways so He heal our land?

    If we’re seeking after power, glory, fame or riches (the things of this world) we’ll never be able to find His Ways because His Way is so much higher than our way. His Understanding is so much higher than our understanding.

    Until we (all God’s people) fulfill these simple acts of obediance, we WILL reap what we deserve and He will NOT heal our land!

    If we want to see a change in this old world, we must begin with ourselves. We’re the ones He gave the right to choose. Neither flora nor fauna have the ability to choose, only human beings.

    The scriptures say: “Choose this day whom you will serve” – Luke 16:13; Deuteronomy 30:15-30; and again in Romans 2:1-12.

    God’s Word is always so simple we often miss His point by trying to complicate matters with our “high minded thinking”. What a mess we’ve made of His world as a result!!

    Another good job, point well taken!!

    Not three days ago, before you posted this blog entry, I myself was reading Chapter 6 in the Book of Revelation, cocked my head at verse 8, and within the next two minutes found myself reading through the 26th Chapter of Leviticus, with my eyes widening when I reached verse 22, and made the connection.
    ““He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

  3. We have to remain, “the adults in the room”. There are many on the anti-wolf side who, by their very natures, actions, and words, are helping the opposition. As this thing plays out I’m afraid more and more of our so-called “allies” on the anti-wolf side are going to harden their hearts even further, and begin acting more like “brute beasts”. But one thing I do know, our God is just, and sooner or later, we will be held to account. We reap what we sow.

    OSMOTS, that is one reason why Jesus will dry our tears: we so hardened our hearts and the church is more like the world than it is like Him. Whatever happened to “putting on Christ?
    I was noticiing that DRUDGE had a report on just how wide-spread “The Force” religion has taken over; talk about groping! Star-Wars has become pie-in-the-sky-faith for all those COEXIST people, most of whom hate Christians.
