Vigilant against vigilantes

The wild west in United States of America history is a Satanic initiative. It is the natural outcome of poor character, the manifest destiny of thieves and robbers, and the undoing of a vision of Israelite-wamnabes. You are so in favour of life that you think that a man can put semen into a woman without her permission and leave her no recourse to expel it and eliminate it’s effect. You think that guns in the hands of as many people as possible makes a nation secure. God does not approve of vigilantism. We condemn taking the law into our own hands from every quarter.

You are in popular but shameful company. People who want to kill innocent children are your heroes. Preachers and prophets who are dumb watchdogs, who have nothing to say to change racist and hateful words and practices (at home and abroad) are your heroes.

Since when does God want his will written on stone? Since when does God turn his administration of justice over to religious leaders? Both the Old Testament and New Testament are witnesses

When Muslims, Christians Jews profess the same readiness to ban, proscribe and execute violators of law who can deny that they are feeding the beast?

These three groups love the label people of the book but they only want the notoriety of the designation and will have nothing to do with the central necessity for human life to thrive. Loving one’s neighbour is not a priority.

My observation is that religious and political leaders in 2019 all over the world have Donald Trump written on their foreheads and hands. They do not have the courage to distinguish Peter from James, a Benz from a Ford, God from man, condemnation from grace, or thief from shepherd.

You support the murder of Palestinians, Muslims, Jews and hope that noone notices that the United States and the United Kingdom are destined to betray the cosmopolitan destiny of Jerusalem, the city of God, and pursue their own prostitute’s vision of the world.

You want monuments to the Ten Commandments and you cannot even recognize your death in them. You think you can buy righteousness with your own filthy deeds and leave Abraham behind.

Vigilantees have the means to elevate Christ but choose to play the part of terrorist and disclose the soiled clothes and darkened imaginations of a Christ-rejecting generation.

See http://www.dannyshelton.com for a thorough view of the demonic majoring in minors and the terrorism of law as the peace that the world needs. These are the people who lie to their children about law and justice then expect them to see the virtue in Christ.

The devil in the details

Their arrival is not an accident. God wanted us to see them in infrared and ultraviolet light, and therefore inspired Paul to tag the phenomenon.

Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. 1 Timothy 4:1-3

Murder and rape are in the DNA of culture and religion. It needs to change. The authorities can put people into reservations and prisons but they have not yet successfully taken the truth out of God’s elect.

They answered him, Abraham is our father. Jesus said to them, If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did. John 8:39-40

If you are not this guy defined above tell yourself “how great is our God” to have separated me from the perishing.

The Greatest Whatever

In an age of increasing sensitivity to what people have been calling diversity and equality the use of comparative and superlative adjectives has become a hypocritical chess game.   As a result, parenting has become a parental black hole.  Leading has become figure-headed wandering. Excellence has been downgraded to “great efforts”, everyone takes home a trophy, and the truly great ones are hidden behind bullying, prejudice, and insignificant conflicts based on the love of gain, personal and national pre-eminence.

The colonial and imperial mentality with its greed and domination motifs, heroes and villains, still pops up from time to time, reminding us that humanity is what it is: a creature with options.  The current Canadian furor about the word “sons” in the national anthem illustrates how thought leaders can pettifog, pretending to be aiming for the sky in recognizing diversity and equality.  It has not dawned on Canadian patriots, to tease out how the First Nations lost their sovereignty, in Canada, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, the Caribbean, South America, and the Levant.  Who are the heroes and villains in the great slave of Africans?

 

O Canada! Our home and native land!

True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,

The True North strong and free!

From far and wide, O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

 Here is an example of the greatest nothing.  Polls (for changing/against) report: 4/31, 594/5398, 3/9, and 12%/83%.  Since when does son not mean offspring, adopted or otherwise, especially in a nation with an English language heritage?  Since when does we or our not include the speaker (the singer)?  What is Canada’s gender?  Why is this anthem using 16th century pronouns: thy, thee?  Millions of believers read and study the best-seller of all time in the same 16th century language as the anthem uses, the King James Version of the Bible.  Just look up sons in the Christian heritage!

On the trail of the greatest we find all eyes looking back in time, way back, to ancient Babylon, the Medo-Persian empire, Greece and Rome, the first and second world wars.  The present is irrelevant, because labelling anyone as the greatest other than a martial arts fighter who just knocked out the opponent runs the risk of calling someone a loser.  To call something the greatest is to relegate another to “the pits”, and we can’t have that, can we?  There are however men, women, boys and girls, all over the planet who are the greatest.

 Malalal Yousfazai is the bravest victim of Taliban misogyny and backwardness.  I could be wrong. 

What label does Nelson Mandela deserve?  What wreath will Barack Obama wear?   Does not Winnie Churchill ought to have a crown for standing up to Hitler?  Which of the trading nations will rise to the top of the list of Babylon’s prostitute daughters?  Does anyone want to claim the title “Greater than Babylon the Great”?

We thought Solomon was wise.  What is his legacy in connection with the revealed wisdom of his ancestors?  We were sure that Moses was legislator par excellence.  Where are his disciples today?  We thought the caesars and Alexander were great.  Where exactly is their squeaky-clean legacy?

 By the way, doesn’t the biggest sword go hand in hand with the biggest shop?

And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. Revelation 6:4

And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. Revelation 18:23

And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: Revelation 18:11

The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, Revelation 18:12

And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. Revelation 18:13

Which nation will stand up as the refuge for oppressed people?

Which nation will take the prize for a religion (culture?) of intolerance of foreigners?

Which nation will stand up for the equal right of all its people?

Which nation wears the crown for its drug culture?

Who wields the biggest sword?

Who built the longest wall?

Where is the peace and security the United Nations is supposed to guarantee?

Don’t everybody stand up now.   

Envelope please. The Oscar goes to ………………………….the greatest … magician who has … disappeared from the front row.

The search continues. Nobody wants to be the greatest any more.
