A strange prophecy uttered centuries ago seems to be revealing itself. "For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together." Matthew 24:28. Quite literally it could read, "For wherever you see the dead body, there will the scavengers be gathered together."
Our nation today could well be characterized as a dead body on which the scavengers are taking their toll, but most of this nation's citizens do not seem to get the point or recognize what constitutes the death of the body. The death of the body is not when one loses his gun. It is not when the Constitution is abrogated. It is not even the death of the body when one is not able to vote. The death is when one loses his soul to the control of another.
It is recognized that our country has been responsible for some serious crimes. Our leaders have plotted the assassination of men who are presidents of other sovereign nations. The country is guilty of illegally confiscating foreign lands as in the case of Hawaii. Even so, that does not constitute our dead body. Things have changed for generations. Nations have risen and fallen. As population increases, there is no way the status quo can be maintained. As technology expands, the support for that technology also expands, placing upon the society pressures that have to be adjusted.
The Native American was destined to be displaced. While men can live as natives did when there are millions of square miles of vacant land, as the population increases there is simply not room for everyone to live in that way. Can you imagine how it would be for five billion people all needing a hundred square miles for hunting or fishing? While it is romantic to consider the free and unfettered lifestyle of the Native American, it is impossible for that lifestyle to continue with so many humans sharing the same space.
The U.S. now plans to disarm its citizens over time. This is an established fact. Today there are many organizations who are resisting this change. Both sides look at the issue differently. The advocates of disarmament claim that the Constitution only guarantees that there be a well organized army to protect the citizens, while the other side says that the citizens should be allowed to possess weapons. Everyone takes a position. By and by, change comes even if over the body of the resister. Someone has said, they will get my gun when they pry it out of my cold, dead hand. That may very well be what it takes, but they will do it. Native Americans said, they will take my land over my dead body, and so they did.
The United Nations is the new wave. Sovereign states are no longer the picture of the powers that be. It is decreed that all who cling to their sovereign states will simply be removed with those states over their dead bodies. While these issues may be important to individuals, they are not the vital issues. Change is inevitable and predictable. In some ways change is necessary. There is no inherent evil in one-world government. Is not God's government a single government? The evil comes when men rule over the consciences of another. This constitutes the evil that is overpowering the earth.
There are those who proclaim that the U.S. is planning a chip to implant under the skin and that constitutes the mark of the beast. My question is, how would that constitute the mark of the beast any more than a new hip joint planted under the skin or a tooth filling put into the mouth? How would a social security number placed on the skin be different than your number placed on your card? You are still numbered.
Various entities have warned Americans that their liberties are being taken away. They have said that we must stay alert and not let the politicians give our heritage away. They warn against the government coming to take their weapons or that they will be placing the "mark" upon or in them. I stand amazed at how blind these individuals seem to be. How sleepy and dopey as if under the influence of too much wine. They are like men chained to a dungeon wall warning the other prisoners to beware of those who will try and come to put chains on them. A man is truly asleep when he warns another man that his house may soon burn down when the truth is that house was ashes years ago.
In the Third Article of the Bill of Rights it says: "Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech." Also stated as the First Amendment, this is one of the grand and most touted Articles and the one in which Americans boast themselves the most. Yet, this Article has been thrown out of the Constitution long ago. It will not hold in any court of law.
I can very well prove this assertion. Let us suppose I am religious and I believe in certain things. Let us suppose I believe that my property taxes are going to support the public schools. Let us further suppose that I believe that the public schools are degrading my children by teaching them the view that homosexuality is a viable alternative lifestyle. This is not to make an argument either way, this is simply to say that I believe in my soul that it is wrong to teach children that. Let's further suppose that I believe the schools are taking God out of the hearts of children and placing a hedonistic religion in their hearts instead. So far, so good. The government would say, "believe anything you like." But, there is more to Article 3. It says Congress will not prohibit the "free exercise" of that belief.
To carry out my faith, or to freely exercise my faith, let us say I believed that I should not pay to support what I saw was destroying young minds. I saw that by paying for it I was giving it power. Understand that I am not saying that others may not do what they believe in if they believe in that sort of thing. This "not paying" my property tax would constitute the "free exercise" of my faith. While I may very well be able to withhold my property tax, I would have my property confiscated. If I withheld my income taxes because they support abortions, assassinations, world conquest, genocide and sanctions against other sovereign lands under false pretenses, I may very well be jailed for income tax evasion or some other crime. Can you see, we may believe what we like, but we may not freely exercise what we believe in. In no way can this nation be characterized as a free country until one can freely exercise his faith. We are only free to do what we are told we can do, but we may not use our conscience as a guide. We must use state law as the guide and this was essentially the position in the Soviet Union and other communist countries. Our nation has gone into the business of soul control and this is what constitutes taking the mark of the nation (beast). The mark is not a piece of plastic under the skin. It is a soul that has given itself over in his thinking (forehead) and in his labors (hand).The mark is already here and not some day. Men are already chained, and not chained someday. So what if our guns are taken away someday, our souls have been usurped already, our constitution destroyed already.
I am not saying we should wake up and keep the evil away, I am saying wake up and see that the evil has already arrived. The thief already came in and stole just about all that is of any value - your ability to choose what you want to do with your life conscientiously without regard as to what the state says about it. If the state chooses other things for you, you must comply. Of course, I am not speaking of the leaders of the nation. They may fornicate themselves, their children, and just about anyone else. They may plot the murder of their enemies. I am speaking of the normal, average citizen. It is he who must obey the law. One may know this to be true from the latest ABC presentation about J.F. Kennedy which aired December 4th. President Kennedy did and planned things which would be crimes for any common man, but his police guards turned their backs to his crimes. Even J. Edgar Hoover turned a blind eye.
The issue of gun control is now evident. It is true that guns are not the problem as some men say. So what if guns are taken away, men can use Molotov cocktails. Will the state then outlaw gas? If gas were outlawed, then men could kill with a match by setting fire to his opponent's house. If matches were confiscated, then men could kill with a rope and use it to hang their opponent. Does the state plan to put us all in strait-jackets and feed us with machines so we will be good and not hurt anyone? No, gun control is not about people killing other people. It is about the control of the soul. Should not a man be judged for his crimes rather than judged for things he possesses? Should all water glasses be confiscated because some of them were used to commit murder? No, things are not the problem and guns are not the problem. The problem is that the state wants its mark upon every citizen and it will not share that mark with the God of heaven. It demands that men will pay their dues and do what they are told, even if it does not make sense and even if it is not according to their consciences. The state does not need to meet the minds of its citizens, it only needs to command.
The evidence for this is plain. It is considered a hate crime to speak against homosexuality in some circles, but it is not a hate crime to speak against child molestation. May I ask what is the difference? The state has decreed you may have sex with consenting adults of the same sex, but not with consenting children. If same sex is good as the state proclaims, then why withhold something good from children? The Scriptures condemn either one of these practices, but the state picks and chooses. The state declares that some perversion is good and right if practiced after a certain age. Who made up this age that men can come to in order to be right about immorality?
As a Christian I use the Scriptures as my authority for my religious beliefs, but what does the state use? If the Scriptures are discounted by the state, then what do they use to say anything is wrong or right-- a man's opinion? Are we to follow a man now? Is this a cult? Has God become so obsolete and inferior to man that we must now trust the state to tell us what is moral and what is immoral? From all evidence, the state sure doesn't know and cannot judge these things. Who says that child molestation is wrong? I only know one authoritative source. That source is the Bible. If the Bible is not considered, then who can make this judgment? Anything is right that any man wants to do. Is not one man's opinion as good as another? Who is the state to proclaim itself the revealer of morals? The state may very well know how to build roads or fix sewers but it is not qualified to judge what is morally right.
Why is it that national leaders may plan the assassination of other men, but the citizens may not? Why is it that the U.S. may withhold its dues to the United Nations until it is satisfied with its direction, but citizens may not withhold their taxes until the citizens are satisfied with the nation's direction?
There are other evidences for soul control. Our nation may put someone in jail for the smallest amount of marijuana, but they may possess cigarettes which have a higher risk factor for health. I do not use drugs, myself, but I fail to see how a woman can have control over her own body and abort a baby while a man cannot have control over his own body and smoke marijuana. Which is more important, a new creature formed in the image of God or some hemp? Why is it that there are black clubs and black organizations in certain corporations which are not considered racist, but white clubs or white organizations are considered racist? Why is it that we might mock the actions of a white male, but when we mock the actions of a woman or racial minority it is considered prejudice? Men strain at a gnat and swallow a camel. Again, if true reason and sanity were displayed, even a small child would know the answers to these questions, but since men are working to enslave the consciences of other men and you have soul control, there is no reason but only an insane delusion as to what constitutes right and wrong.
Generations ago many of the citizens of the English Commonwealth were feeling the bite of soul control. They were able to resolve the situation by moving to America, "the land of the free." Now that America practices the same coercion of conscience, where do the citizens go now? The citizens are forced into a corner and react as a she bear with her cubs. This is the issue that underlies much of the upheaval and discontent. No man likes having his conscience messed with by anyone. This is not a racial truth but a human one. Now there is no place for the oppressed to flee. There is only one solution. The system must be brought to its end. The earth must be destroyed. Soul control is a capital offense. God reserves the domain of conscience for Himself. When men usurp that authority and strive to control men's consciences (that which God does not even do), the God of heaven bears His arm and things are righted. Soul control was practiced on black slaves and the nation was divided and nearly ruined with civil war because of it. The Lord fixes what we break.
The eagle is a fitting symbol of this nation. This scavenger is now eating the flesh off the citizens of this once great country. Although eagles are more characterized as liking to eat fish, the symbol is appropriate. According to Webster's, a slang use of the term "fish" is: "an incompetent player whose incompetence can be exploited". Another meaning is: "a new prison inmate." I think both definitions fit precisely. Yes, eagles like to eat fish also if you are one. I think we are getting what we deserve. Our freedoms will not be returned to us. No, they won't. The only answer these days is to be free and take the consequences. The answer is to refrain from the mark and take the results of doing that. Oh, yes, the Scriptures say, "and that no man might buy or sell save he that had the mark." This beast wants our worship, he wants soul control. It says, as many as would not worship (submit and honor) this beast should be killed. Well, I have decided I am not going to let him control my soul and I will freely exercise my faith anyway. While most men proclaim, "we have no other king but Caesar," a few still say, "Father, Thy will be done."
