I woke up early this morning to hear to the sound of a rainstorm pounding the roof. It takes a lot to wake me up so this was LOUD. This thought came to me: The blood of Christ cleanses our souls from unrighteousness like the hard rain.

Here is a moral dilemma: If an authority figure tells you to do something wrong or evil, should you do it?
This question could apply to civil or military authorities as well as religious, academic and commercial authorities.
The Scriptures say the answer is no, we must not do anything evil, even if an authority tells us to. We must do what is right.
As governments increasingly align to the New World Order agenda during the end times, we will face more severe pressures. Authorities may order police or military to confiscate property or use violence unjustly against fellow citizens. Will police and military do what's right or enforce the tyranny? Authorities may force mandatory vaccines that will harm or disable us. Will you let them do that to you and your family? They may demand people relocate to concentration camps under the pretext of providing food, shelter and safety, but it will be a ruse. These will be labor and death camps. Ultimately governments will demand people take the mark of the beast under penalty of starvation, torture and death. Anyone who takes the mark can never be redeemed and will spend eternity in the lake of fire, according to the Book of Revelation.
We have to make up our minds now to be courageous and not yield to the pressures to do wrong, even if it comes from authorities, whether governmental, religious or societal.
The prophet Isaiah stated plainly the standard of conduct God requires:
"Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
Remove the evil of your deeds from My sight.
Cease to do evil,
Learn to do good;
Reprove the ruthless,
Defend the orphan,
Plead for the widow."
- Isaiah 1:16-17, NASB
Say yes to good and no to evil. Assist the helpless and downtrodden. Stand up against ruthless abusers.
The prophet Micah said it this way:
"He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?" - Micah 6:8, NKJV
Submit only to doing good
Let's begin the primary Bible passage about submission to authority:
"Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor." - Romans 13:1-4, NKJV
Romans 13 encourages us to be good citizens and follow laws and customs. However, it is clearly a submission in the context of doing good: "Do what is good." When governing authorities demand we do evil, THIS PASSAGE DOES NOT APPLY.
Some people believe that submitting to authority means we do anything they say. No, the injunction to do good and not evil comes first. When we all stand before the judgment seat of the Almighty, He will not accept "the government told me to" or "the church told me to" as an excuse for doing evil. We are all individually accountable to discern and carry out what is right.
Midwives disobey Pharaoh
Let's look at the account of the Hebrew midwives in the book of Exodus. Keep in mind that Pharaoh is the king. He is the head government "authority." The Hebrew people are his subjects:
"Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah, "When you help the Hebrew women give birth, observe them as they deliver. If the child is a son, kill him, but if it’s a daughter, she may live." The Hebrew midwives, however, feared God and did not do as the king of Egypt had told them; they let the boys live. So the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and asked them, "Why have you done this and let the boys live?" The midwives said to Pharaoh, "The Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women, for they are vigorous and give birth before a midwife can get to them." So God was good to the midwives, and the people multiplied and became very numerous. Since the midwives feared God, He gave them families." - Exodus 1:15-21
Pharaoh began to fear the Hebrew people because they became so numerous and strong. He was concerned they might one day rebel against his kingdom, so he decided to persecute them with slavery and infanticide. He ordered the Hebrew midwives to kill any sons born among their people.
However, the midwives refused to obey the command. When confronted, they told Pharaoh the Hebrew women bore children before they could arrive. This wasn't really true - it was a cover story. God was pleased with the midwives' faithfulness and rewarded them with families or, as some translations put it, "households." According to Jewish sages, this meant not only that they received husbands and children, but that their families became great in the nation of Israel. God blessed them greatly for their good deeds.
What is the lesson we can draw from this passage? When confronted with an evil law or command from those in authority, do not carry it out. Disobedience and maybe even a little wiliness are in order.
Some may object: Aren't we supposed to submit to authority? Aren't we supposed to tell the truth? Yes, that's the rule. But there are exceptions to rules and this passage in Exodus describes one. God expects us to exercise discernment and make righteous choices, not unthinkingly follow "rules" and "authorities."
Rahab hides the Israelite spies
Here is another insightful passage in Scripture:
"Joshua son of Nun secretly sent two men as spies from the Acacia Grove, saying, 'Go and scout the land, especially Jericho.' So they left, and they came to the house of a woman, a prostitute named Rahab, and stayed there. The king of Jericho was told, 'Look, some of the Israelite men have come here tonight to investigate the land.' Then the king of Jericho sent word to Rahab and said, 'Bring out the men who came to you and entered your house, for they came to investigate the entire land.' But the woman had taken the two men and hidden them. So she said, 'Yes, the men did come to me, but I didn’t know where they were from. At nightfall, when the gate was about to close, the men went out, and I don’t know where they were going. Chase after them quickly, and you can catch up with them!' But she had taken them up to the roof and hidden them among the stalks of flax that she had arranged on the roof. The men pursued them along the road to the fords of the Jordan, and as soon as they left to pursue them, the gate was shut. Before the men fell asleep, she went up on the roof and said to them, 'I know that the Lord has given you this land and that the terror of you has fallen on us, and everyone who lives in the land is panicking because of you. For we have heard how the Lord dried up the waters of the Red Sea before you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to Sihon and Og, the two Amorite kings you completely destroyed across the Jordan. When we heard this, we lost heart, and everyone’s courage failed because of you, for the Lord your God is God in heaven above and on earth below. Now please swear to me by the Lord that you will also show kindness to my family, because I showed kindness to you. Give me a sure sign that you will spare the lives of my father, mother, brothers, sisters, and all who belong to them, and save us from death.' The men answered her, 'We will give our lives for yours. If you don’t report our mission, we will show kindness and faithfulness to you when the Lord gives us the land.' Then she let them down by a rope through the window, since she lived in a house that was built into the wall of the city. 'Go to the hill country so that the men pursuing you won’t find you,' she said to them. 'Hide yourselves there for three days until they return; afterward, go on your way.' The men said to her, 'We will be free from this oath you made us swear, unless, when we enter the land, you tie this scarlet cord to the window through which you let us down. Bring your father, mother, brothers, and all your father’s family into your house. If anyone goes out the doors of your house, his blood will be on his own head, and we will be innocent. But if anyone with you in the house should be harmed, his blood will be on our heads. And if you report our mission, we are free from the oath you made us swear.' 'Let it be as you say,' she replied, and she sent them away. After they had gone, she tied the scarlet cord to the window."
- Joshua 2:1-21, Holman Bible
Joshua sent two spies to investigate the land God had promised to Israel. The spies stayed at Rahab the harlot's house in Jericho. When the king of Jericho demanded she bring out the spies, Rahab hid them and misdirected the authorities. She understood God was with Israel and her city would eventually fall to them. So Rahab made a deal with the spies to protect her and her family.
Here again is someone defying authorities and being canny and guileful, which is portrayed in the word of God as a great act of faith. So much so that Rahab's story is enshrined in the Hebrews faith hall of fame:
"By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after being encircled by the Israelites for seven days. By faith Rahab the prostitute received the spies in peace and didn’t perish with those who disobeyed." - Hebrews 11:30-31
Not only did Rahab become an honorary citizen of Israel, but it appears she also became part of the Messiah's ancestry:
"Salmon fathered Boaz by Rahab, Boaz fathered Obed by Ruth, Obed fathered Jesse..." - Matthew 1:5
Is your head spinning now? Many think that walking with God means following a simple, black-and-white set of rules, but it's more than that. It's walking with God by faith, hearing his voice and following him. God wants us to understand the situation and times we are in and discern what his will and purposes are. Rahab understood she was living in a nation under judgment and that God was with the nation of Israel. She elected to join God's movement, in spite of her own people and nation. That was an enormous act of courage and faith.
By contrast, the Pharisees and Sadducees of Jesus time did not understand they were living in the time of the Messiah and missed it completely. They rejected Jesus, labeled him a heretic and consigned him to death.
Do you understand the times we live in now? I cannot emphasize enough how important that is.
David flees from King Saul
In 1 Samuel we read the story of King Saul and his successor King David. Saul did not fully trust and obey the Lord and lost his throne, while David was a man after God's own heart. There came a time when God anointed David as the next king, but Saul was still on the throne for many years before passing away. In those intervening years, King Saul constantly tried to kill David. He hated David because he knew God was with him and would eventually inherit the throne.
Though Saul was king and still the "governing authority," David fled and would not let Saul kill him. David was constantly on the run. Twice Saul tried to impale him with a spear, but David dodged it. Saul marched his army around the country to find and kill David. With the Lord's help, David was always one step ahead.
Here is my point: Just because the government wants to kill or imprison you doesn't necessarily mean you should let them. There is a time coming when this will be a clear threat especially for true Christians. It already is in many countries around the world.
Saul's servants refuse to slay the priests1 Samuel 21 and 22 tell the story of David seeking help from the priest Ahimelech in the town of Nob. David pretended to be on a mission for King Saul, when actually he was fleeing from Saul. Ahimelech gave David food and Goliath's old sword.
When Saul learned of it, he was furious and summoned Ahimelech and all his father's household. He accused Ahimelech of giving aid to a traitor and ordered his guards to kill the priests.
"But the king’s servants would not lift a hand to execute the priests of the Lord." - 1 Samuel 22:17
In other words, they feared the Lord and refused to carry out an unjust order. For those in military, police and other enforcement agencies, please keep this example in mind.
Instead, Saul ordered Doeg the Edomite, who was not a Hebrew, to do it. Doeg slaughtered the whole town. For those of you aware of foreign troops stationed in the US, note the pattern here.
Apostles refuse to stop preaching about Jesus ChristIn Acts 5, the apostles in Jerusalem were preaching and performing miracles and more and more people became believers. This made the religious leaders jealous, so they arrested the apostles and put them in jail. An angel of the Lord opened the door during the night, let them out and told them to go preach again in the temple complex. When they were spotted preaching, the temple police brought them in before the Sanhedrin, Jerusalem's council of judges and religious leaders. The high priest reprimanded the apostles and reminded them of the Sanhedrin's order to stop preaching about Jesus.
"But Peter and the apostles replied, 'We must obey God rather than men.'" - Acts 5:29
And that's the bottom line. We obey God rather than men. If the laws and commands of men conflict with God, we submit to God instead.
ConclusionI hope these Scriptures challenge everyone to go deeper in understanding what it means to walk with God by faith. As we move into the end times and the world system becomes darker and more sinister, conventional wisdom and conventional ways of operating will no longer apply. Following authority figures without question or adhering to a simplistic set of rules could get you and others harmed, killed or worse. Anyone who buckles to the pressure from government and society to receive the mark of the beast will lose their soul for eternity (more on this topic in a future article):
"And a third angel followed them and spoke with a loud voice: 'If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he will also drink the wine of God’s wrath, which is mixed full strength in the cup of His anger. He will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the sight of the holy angels and in the sight of the Lamb, and the smoke of their torment will go up forever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or anyone who receives the mark of his name. This demands the perseverance of the saints, who keep God’s commands and their faith in Jesus.'" - Revelation 14:9-12
I'm not saying people should not follow the rules. I am saying the rules are perhaps bigger than you think they are. It's important to read Bible cover to cover and receive the whole counsel of God. We are going to have to live more by faith - by a direct connection to God through the Holy Spirit. He is faithful to lead us!

Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction,
Sorcerer of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning,
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind,
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role for the poor, yeah
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess,
Wait 'till their judgement day comes, yeah
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more War Pigs have the power,
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pigs crawling,
Begging mercies for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings"
- "War Pigs" by Black Sabbath, released in 1970
I don't listen to heavy metal music, but for some reason the song "War Pigs" came to mind tonight as I was thinking about America's current situation.
Did you know 84% of Republicans supported President Trump's airstrike against Syria, according to a CBS poll? Since three-quarters of Republicans identify as Christian, this means right-leaning Christians overwhelmingly supported it. In spite of it being unconstitutional for a president to make an act of war without Congress' approval. In spite of the chemical gas attack almost certainly being a false flag. President Assad had absolutely no reason to do it, and Assad isn't that bad of a guy as far as Middle East dictators go. Christian Syrians support him because he protects them! A chemical gas attack was the same gimmick pulled four years ago under Obama when he wanted to attack Syria, but Congressional Republicans wouldn't give approval. Listen to this MIT professor describe how the evidence presented by the White House for the alleged gas attack doesn't even pass the "laugh test":
What is really going? Globalists want to topple Syria because it's part of their agenda for dominating the Middle East. They want to ensure oil and gas pipelines to Europe for client states that support the petrodollar (Saudi, Gulf Arabs states), while denying pipelines to Iran who aligns with Russia and has been selling oil for gold instead of US dollars. President Assad also aligns with Iran and Russia, which is why the Western globalists want him out. This is about money and power, not children in getting hurt in a gas attack.
It grieves me and boggles the mind that a pagan heavy metal band demonstrated more insight into war and judgment than I see among the Christians who support needless foreign bloodshed. Do we think it pleases God that this country for decades has operated a globalist-run war machine inflicting death and destruction on the world? Or that we will not have to pay a price for it?
No, He is not pleased and America is in trouble. I'll explain a basis from Scripture for why and how the Lord will judge the nation. It is part of the covenant God declared to Noah and all mankind after the Great Flood - the primary standard for divine judgment in this age:
"Whoever sheds man’s blood, his blood will be shed by man, for God made man in His image." – Genesis 9:6
The Day’s of Noah before the flood were exceedingly violent, especially because of the Nephilim, and it grieved the Lord. Therefore God established a standard to keep violence in check by exacting a penalty for those who engage in it unjustly: Blood for blood and life for life. It doesn’t always come right away, but it does come.

"We should stay the hell out of Syria, the "rebels" are just as bad as the current regime. WHAT WILL WE GET FOR OUR LIVES AND $ BILLIONS?ZERO" - Donald Trump on Twitter
Trump campaigned as an anti-interventionist, pledging to focus on rebuilding America instead of costly military interventions. Now he's attacking Syria and rattling sabers with Russia, North Korea and China. I previously chronicled Trump's deception and bad faith on "repealing" Obamacare - see Obamacare, the New World Order and the Mark of the Beast - Part I. Trump campaigned on putting Hillary Clinton in jail, but after his election said the Clintons were "good people." He appointed a Goldman Sachs globalist bankster as Treasury Secretary. And so on and so forth.
Jesus said you will know people by their fruits:
"Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravaging wolves. You’ll recognize them by their fruit. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes or figs from thistles? In the same way, every good tree produces good fruit, but a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree can’t produce bad fruit; neither can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that doesn’t produce good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So you’ll recognize them by their fruit." - Matthew 7:16-20, Holman Bible
Trump is producing bad fruit because he is a bad tree. Trump is a con put up by the globalist elite to fool conservatives and nationalists - and especially Christians - so that when everything falls apart on his watch, they get the blame. He was always working for the globalists.
I was not fooled by Trump because I asked the Lord what he is about. The Lord answered and said Trump was a deception, so I believed it. It was that simple. I'm not boasting. I didn't see through Trump because I'm smarter. I listened to the Holy Spirit. Elsewhere on this blog I shared some of the things the Lord showed me about Trump and Obama.
Yet after that revelation, I watched most Christians and almost everyone in the alternative media go bonkers for Trump. It was Trump mania. Trump this, Trump that. When I spoke against Trump, I was generally ignored or criticized.
Ask the Lord for Discernment
"See to it that no one misleads you." – Matthew 24:4, NASB
Two or three more times in the following passage, Jesus warned about being misled and deceived. "For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect."
THE END TIMES ARE THE AGE OF DECEPTION! We have to guard against deceptions because falling for them is costly. People can lose their eternal souls. Lives can be cut short. It can affect the soundness of our faith, testimony, mission and rewards in heaven.
To guard against deception, we first have to make sure our hearts are yielded to the Lord. If we are not yielded, it is easy for Satan to mislead us with tricks and wiles that tickle our ears. When asking God for wisdom, we have to be willing to hear the answer even if it goes against what we want or how we think things should be. I've been guilty of doing that. There were times when I didn't hear the Lord's answer because it wasn't what I thought it should be.
Be Careful with the Media
Jesus said we should be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves. This means worldly-wise, not gullible or naive, while walking in God's righteousness.
The alternative and Christian media is a mixed bag. There is truth and some deception, so use discernment. The Trump con is a great example of alternative media failure. With few exceptions, the alternative media personalities were all aboard the Trump train. Now some are waking up and saying, "Oh, I think Trump got co-opted." Co-opted? You mean the guy who bravely and brashly stood up against the political and media establishment somehow got tricked into following a globalist agenda as president? No, I don't think so.
Many in the alternative media are sincere and I do appreciate their work. But I need to warn you about Alex Jones and Infowars. His support for Trump was so ridiculously fawning and over the top. Jones is too smart and awake to fall for that, so I believe he was doing it on purpose. He also avoids critical issues that are sensitive for the globalists, like the pervasive satanism and child pedophilia among the elite (Pizzagate), mind control programs, the Vatican and Jesuit influence, and aliens and fallen angel technology, and exposing false flag operations like Sandy Hook. This tells me Alex Jones is controlled opposition. His role is to make people think they are awake while keeping them from really opening their eyes. It's is another level of deception.
Beware of false prophecies too. Please take prophecies to the Lord for confirmation and make sure they are from him. For instance, the prophecies about Trump being God's man to restore America were not from God.
Which brings me back to my main point: We have to listen to the Lord Jesus and get our understanding of the times from him. The deceptions will only become more deceitful from here! There will be a fake Jesus that looks and feels 99.9% like the real one, but it will be a fallen angel or demonic being. Can you tell the difference? Only if you are listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit.

Friday, March 31, 2017
I'm going to share some things you need to know but may not want to hear. Please read all the way through, even if you don't agree with everything. This is an important message. It is about the connection between Obamacare, the New World Order "beast" system in Bible prophecy and the mark of the beast.
Case in Point: Obamacare LiteFirst, let's examine the recent effort by the House Republicans and President Trump to "repeal and replace" Obamacare. There has been a lot of spin from media and politicians, so we need to look closely at the details to see the truth.
Republicans have been promising to repeal Obamacare ever since President Obama and the Democrats passed it seven years ago. It has been a rallying cry to elect more Republicans. House Republicans voted dozens of times to repeal or eliminate provisions of Obamacare while Obama was in the White House. In fact, both the House and Senate Republicans passed a bill in January 2016 to repeal Obamacare. But President Obama vetoed it! Republicans loudly blamed Obama and the Democrats for defending this terrible healthcare legislation.
Along came Donald Trump who campaigned on a promise to repeal and replace Obamacare. He won, as did a majority of Republicans in the House and Senate. Now Obamacare should finally be repealed, right? Wrong!
Instead of moving forward with the Obamacare repeal that already passed the House and Senate, Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican leaders crafted a bill that made some adjustments to Obamacare but fundamentally left the program in place. It was Obamacare Lite. (Yes, I actually read the Congressional Budget Office's report on the bill.) Like Obamacare, it was was based on the principle that the government should fund, regulate and encourage participation in health insurance. The Republicans bill was full of subsidies and regulations, though perhaps fewer than Obamacare. It still had a penalty for people who do not purchase approved insurance policies. Instead of a tax penalty, it required insurance companies to charge a 30% premium to any individual who let their coverage lapse more than 63 days. So individuals would pay insurance companies instead the IRS! The bill maintained Obamacare's big government, quasi-socialized health care system. It was not a repeal and not based on principles of free markets and free choice.
When the Congressional Budget Office scored the bill, they concluded it would raise premiums in the non-group individual policy market by 15% to 20% above Obamacare over the next couple calendar years. I can tell you from personal experience that Obamacare has increased my health insurance costs enormously. Last year alone the increase was 40%! This year premiums for a family of four would be around $16,000 plus an $8,000 family deductible. I would have to pay about $24,000 before materially benefiting from a health insurance policy. So the question for me is: Should I pay for my house or buy health insurance and live in a tent? The bill proposed by Republicans would have increased that amount to as much as $29,000 per year. WHAT A HORRIBLE DEAL.
Yes, I realize low income people are benefiting from cheap, heavily subsidized premiums. Wealthy people at the top probably don't care because they can afford any price. But for self-employed families in the middle like mine, health insurance is no longer affordable under Obamacare or Obamacare Lite.
Republican leaders also added a clause in the bill to defund the abortion provider Planned Parenthood - but only for one year. Republicans could claim they defunded Planned Parenthood, when in reality it was a short-term gimmick and funding would resume again quickly. Maybe they would just front-load the payment to Planned Parenthood and wait a year for the next disbursement. In any case, it was a trick to fool people about federal funding of infanticide.
One would think President Trump, who campaigned on repealing Obamacare and stopping abortion, would object to the Republicans' Obamacare Lite and fake defunding of abortion. Instead Trump said he backed Ryan's bill "100%." He tweeted:
"After seven horrible years of ObamaCare (skyrocketing premiums and deductibles, bad healthcare), this is finally your chance for a great plan!" - Donald Trump on Twitter
That was not true at all. When Speaker Ryan and President Trump decided not to put the bill to a vote because too many conservative Republicans would not support it, Trump tweeted:
"Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood and Ocare!" - Donald Trump on Twitter
That too was a lie. Conservative Republicans merely stopped Obamacare Lite and a fake defunding of Planned Parenthood. Donald Trump is a sharp, detail-oriented executive, and Obamacare is a central issue for the Republican Party. I do not believe he was ignorant about the situation. Trump and Republican leaders chose to be deceptive and act in bad faith.
Finally, following standard Washington politics, Trump shifted blame to the Democrats. Along with Paul Ryan, he expressed resignation to the fact that America will be stuck with Obamacare until it sinks the entire healthcare system under its own weight. THEN he promises to solve the problem:
“The losers are Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, because they own Obamacare. They 100% own it,” Trump said. “They have Obamacare for a little while longer until it ceases to exist, which it will at some point in the near future.”
"ObamaCare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE. Do not worry!" - Donald Trump on Twitter
The United States of GlobalismSo what is really going on here? Why did Republicans promise for seven years to get rid of Obamacare and, when given the opportunity, fail to do it?
Some excuse it by saying Republicans are afraid to lead or unable to govern. No, I don't believe incompetence and fear are the main problems. These politicians are serving the interests of those they represent, though it is not the people.
Others say politicians are beholden to corporate and special interests and corrupted by lobbyists and bribery. This is closer to the truth, because graft is the main driver for many politicians. They receive campaign donations from special interests that, when not all spent on the campaigns, may find their way into their pockets. There are other ways to bribe, like paying for fancy trips (i.e. boondoggles) and offering sure-fire "investments." Not to mention the seedier "benefits" of illicit drugs and sex. Once they are on the take, powers behind the scenes make sure these politicians don't step out of line by threatening to expose or prosecute them. Remember the old Tom Cruise movie The Firm? As a new hotshot lawyer at a prominent law firm, Cruise's character was seduced by a strange woman. Later, when he threatened to expose the firm's illegal activities, the firm's head of security showed him very clear, up-close photos of the encounter and threatened to mail them to his wife if he didn't keep quiet. See how that works?
What about the good guys in Congress - those with integrity and principles? I'm sorry, but they are so few that they don't make a difference.
Top politicians like Paul Ryan and Donald Trump are in a different category. I would put the Clintons, the Bushes, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Dick Cheney, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Nancy Pelosi, etc. in this category too. Republicans and Democrats alike. These people knowingly and willingly serve the globalist agenda. By globalism, on one level, I am talking about the efforts worldwide to dissolve national borders, economies and militaries and form supranational unions, like the European Union and (eventual) North American Union, which will roll up into the United Nations to form a world government. It includes so-called free-trade agreements like NAFTA, CAFTA, TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) and TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership), which are incremental steps toward dissolving national borders and handing power over to multi-national corporations and institutions.
At the highest level, globalism refers to the New World Order: the one-world government, religion and economy that will be established at the end of the age according to Bible prophecy. Please see the books of Daniel and Revelation. This is Satan's agenda for the world:
"They worshiped the dragon because he gave authority to the beast. And they worshiped the beast, saying, 'Who is like the beast? Who is able to wage war against him?'... And he was permitted to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. He was also given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation. All those who live on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name was not written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slaughtered."
- Revelation 13:4,7-8, Holman Bible
By the way, the Republican and Democratic Parties both serve the globalist agenda. They provide a fake contest between two political parties to give an illusion of distinction and choice and democracy, when in fact the globalist elite control both parties from behind the scenes. No matter who is in power, the globalist agenda goes forward. They don't care whether you are Republican or Democrat - only that you pick a side and believe the illusion.
Et Tu, Trump?Wait a minute, isn't a Trump a nationalist who opposes globalism and wants to build a wall? To which I would say: You mean like he opposed Obamacare?
I'll show you what Donald Trump is about. Look closely at this picture of the iconic Trump Tower in Manhattan, where Donald Trump lives:
This picture comes from Nathan Leal's excellent article, The Trump Chronicles - Part Five - Trump Tower and the Invocation, which exposes Donald Trump as a high-level occultist. Donald Trump designed the building as a perpetual invocation to spiritual principalities of darkness:
"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." - Ephesians 6:12, New King James Version
Trump Tower is shaped to represent 7 pillars of the pagan god Baal standing over a mystical grove of trees that represent the goddess Asherah. The grove is an inverted pyramid with 6 trees on each side - 666. (Trump also lives on the 66th floor.) This is exactly the kind pagan idolatry that ancient Israel adopted from surrounding nations and for which the Lord ultimately judged and destroyed the nation. In other words, Trump constructed a "high place" in plain view in the middle of New York!
Why? Because Trump made a deal with the devil. Remember when Jesus was led into the wilderness to fast and be tempted by Satan? Here was the devil's final offer:
"Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory; and he said to Him, 'All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.' Then Jesus said to him, 'Go, Satan! For it is written, "You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only."'" - Matthew 4:8-10, NASB
Notice that Jesus didn't say the devil couldn't deliver on that promise. Instead He said we should worship the Lord God only!
The devil can deliver riches, fame and power for a time - though anyone who makes a deal with him will get burned in the end. This is how Trump his achieved his success in real estate, show business and politics and received riches, fame, sex and power. It wasn't because he earned good grades at Wharton Business School or is really smart or makes great deals. That's all secondary. He knows it, by the way, as much as he likes to boast about his own greatness. Trump's success comes from his alliance with spiritual powers of darkness. This is why he made Trump Tower into a skyscraper-sized pagan altar and why he will pursue the devil's main agenda: Globalism.

Obamacare: Stepping Stone to GlobalismIf the real agenda is globalism, what does Obamacare have to do with it? I think the answer to that question will clarify why Republicans serving the globalist agenda would not repeal it.
First, Obamacare was designed to be a Trojan Horse that eventually collapses America's healthcare system. Once in place, it creates a slow-motion death spiral that drives up healthcare costs, overwhelms doctors and hospitals, increases taxes, government spending and debt, and discourages businesses from hiring full-time workers. Eventually costs become impossible to manage and the system collapses.
Why would they want to do that? Obama and the Democrats really wanted single-payer, government-run health care but didn't have the political support for it. So they created a plan that expands health insurance coverage and extends the tentacles of government control in the short term (so they can claim to help people) while breaking the system in the long run. When that happens, politicians will say, "Oh no, we have to save healthcare! Here the new plan: Single-payer, socialized medicine."
We are well on the way to this goal. The US now spends about 18% of GDP on healthcare, which is about double what other industrialized nations spend. Costs are crazy high. Regulation is stifling. Insurance companies are going bankrupt or opting not to offer insurance plans in many markets.
While I submit that the secret goal of Barack Obama and the Democratic elite was to collapse healthcare with Obamacare, remember what President Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan are now saying publicly:
"ObamaCare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE. Do not worry!" - Donald Trump on Twitter
They say we have to let Obamacare collapse before we can save healthcare. Now the Democrats and the Republicans are on exactly the same page with regard to Obamacare. Because they are all globalists!!
But that is only part of the picture. The motto for the globalist elite is: "Order out of chaos." Their grand plan is to create a global economic collapse and World War III - out of the ashes of which will emerge the New World Order. In Revelation 6, war is represented by the Red Horse and economic collapse and famine are the Black Horse. The battle of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38-39 describes World War III.
The United States has the world's largest economy and the US dollar is the world reserve currency. If the elite want to collapse the global economy, they have to topple the American economy. If they want to topple the American economy, they have to break its largest critical sector: HEALTHCARE.
Now do you see where this is going?
Introducing the Mark of the BeastI'd like to tell you it doesn't get worse than this, but I actually think it will.
In Part II of this article, I'll explain why I believe a version of Obamacare will introduce the mark of the beast.
"And he requires everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark: the beast’s name or the number of his name. Here is wisdom: The one who has understanding must calculate the number of the beast, because it is the number of a man. His number is 666." - Revelation 13:16-18
But first, let's remember that our healthcare doesn't come from insurance policies or Obamacare:
"And He said, 'If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the Lord, am your healer.'" - Exodus 15:26
"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits; who pardons all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases." - Psalm 103:2-3
