On the evening of November 5th potus45 pretended to be addressing the American people but he simply put his feet firmly in his mouth and attacked the very process he is depending on to protect him for another four years from the mountain of criminal charges that awaits him. Where were the Attorney General and (keep-Mr. PRESIDENT-honest) Vice President when such a cloud of deceit was pouring out of the chief executive?
Pity is due as 45 wriggles and writhes in the grip of the mighty boa of the American voter, and they are who the president should be concerned about. The more he wriggles the tighter the constrictor coils.
America needs a gunsmith
The cheering crowd in the roon was not expected to be sober or conscientous. A small cadre seems ever eager to applaud everything 45 says: spin, hype, misdirection, sheer ignorance or malice. Hopes that an experienced person like VP Pence might take a noble stand are nearly dashed, The alliance between Christians and the agenda of the fundamentalist evangelicals and extreme religious groups should have been reviewed and rebuked when 45 came down staircase badmouthing Mexicans and when he called for a ban on Muslim immigration. Gunsmiths are hard to find.
Expecting a corrupt and seriously indebted businessman to act in any principled way is like expecting our robber-shepherds to be either the hammer or the anvil God needs in finding application of His word. Jams are inevitable, but the only way to imagine that they are not accidents is to assume that 45 and his Christian allies are all closet enemies if Christ’s disciples.
If one is interested in calculating the number that defines human beings there should be little delay. The dominating powers in the eschaton are two satanic-powered beasts (Revelation 13). Broadly speaking we can lodge those identities with governments and allied agencies. They are egotistical tyrants. They compel people to worship the devil on pain of death.
A simple understanding of the beastly character is failure: in triplicate. Human domains are three: sky, land and sea. Compared to the Lamb with his seven horns, seven eyes, and a two-edged sword in his mouth. The Lamb has authority over the living and the dead. The beast and his enabling power, the devil, are on a murderous rampage. The Lamb continues to demonstrate God’s commitment to give life to the dead.
Here is wisdom: a man’s number
Calculate his number
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.
Revelation of John 13:18
And I saw between the throne (with the four living creatures) and the elders a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth.
Revelation of John 5:6
Lamb’s Domain – 777
Churches – Lampstands – Stars
In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength.
Revelation of John 1:16
The last shred of human rebellion
The last signs of human badness are on display in this beastly power and have been since the departure of the apostles. Surprisingly the efforts to corner and threaten earth’s population is aided by churches who are obsessed with unconditional aurhority and secular influence. They support the beast’s law and order interests, assuming that secular law and God’s will can be merged into a single regime. Whether the government has Hindu, Zoroastrian, Buddhist, Muslim, or Jewish foundations it will lack one thing. It will not have a supernatural head. A human head that is not divine is simply more of the same, only worse; more corrupt and deceitful.
