15 “These six cities shall be a refuge, both for the children of Israel, and for the stranger, and for the sojourner among them: that every one that killeth any person unawares may flee thither.
16 And if he smite him with an instrument of iron, so that he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.
17 And if he smite him with throwing a stone, wherewith he may die, and he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.
18 Or if he smite him with an hand weapon of wood, wherewith he may die, and he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.
19 The revenger of blood himself shall slay the murderer: when he meeteth him, he shall slay him.
20 But if he thrust him of hatred, or hurl at him by laying of wait, that he die;
21 Or in enmity smite him with his hand, that he die: he that smote him shall surely be put to death; for he is a murderer: the revenger of blood shall slay the murderer, when he meeteth him.” (Numbers 35:15-21)
2 “If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him.
3 If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.
4 If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restore double.” (Exodus 22:2-4)
We are in the middle of a great debate that has been going on, back and forth for many years. God in His Word is pretty clear on what is commanded according to murder and accidentally killing someone. It all comes down to self-defense and how a person is able to protect themselves from the deeds of evil men.
There has been a discussion in this country over what the parameters for using lethal force during the commission of a crime by an evil intruder into our quiet lives. Many are of the mind that it is wrong to kill in every instance and that God does not give us the right to use deadly force to stop a would be assassin from taking your life, or the life of those around you, including your own family members. Those who are opposed to using weapons for self-defense are what are called “pacifist” and are against every instance of harming another human being, even to their own demise. I had a member tell me that if an intruder came and broke into her home, she would allow the intruder to do whatever he was there to do, either to steal, rape, or even murder and she called it martyrdom…really? Our forefathers addressed this when this country was founded.
OUR FOREFATHERS HAD A BETTER IDEA
“A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” (US Constitution, 2nd Amendment, ratified December 15th, 1791)
They were not only concerned with the individual’s ability to protect one’s self from an assassin among us that would kill with impunity, but also to protect from a government that could in the future infringe on the rights of individual members of society and the ability to keep and bear arms was the foundation that was forged when this nation was in its infancy.
Apparently with the use of our young people in this nation as pawns for abolishing this God given right for self-defense, the left has young people that travel all over the country advocating the removal of our right to bear arms in the name of “March for our Lives”. It seems that some people read the 2nd amendment to the Constitution with a different interpretation than the next person who believes that that right shall not be infringed. The language of the 2nd amendment is pretty clear, as the people wanted guarantees that their rights would be protected in the future from a possible, coming despotic government. When asked by a woman concerning what had just been formed in this nation, Ben Franklin told her right out “A Republic, if you can keep it”. Can we?
I see young people, such as David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez, and Naomi Wadler that seem to pop up at every tragedy that involves gun violence and parrot the same lines of “gun control” and I wonder, “who is paying these kids off and what and who is behind this big push to outlaw guns in this country?”
Anybody who can do a little research, knows that the outlawing of the ability to bear arms, does not nothing but give the criminals more encouragement to obtain an illegal weapon and feel comfortable committing any crime his or her twisted mind can think of. I think right off the top of my head, the cities of Baltimore and Chicago, who have the most stringent laws concerning guns in their cities, and the murder rate and crime rate did not decrease, but increased exponentially.
Our Constitution, including the Bill of Rights that embody the 2nd Amendment changes as we move along in our time, that it is interpreted and re-interpreted as if there were an ongoing contest for the most original interpretation of a sentence that, to the ignorant and uninitiated masses, seems to make perfect sense just the way it reads on the surface.
For the first 200 years of the formation of this Republic, the intent of the 2nd Amendment has functioned as it was intended, and that is to keep the government at bay. Historically, the Constitution did not address concerns of the people, who felt they needed more protection for individual rights then they wanted protection by amendments. So the Bill of Rights was born.
Among the rights the states sought to enshrine as Constitutionally-protected were the rights to freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and the right to keep and bear arms. Our forefather’s who founded this country, were concerned that the newly created government would someday be over-run by a dictator that could take away those rights that they had fought and died for. What follows are some of the statements that men who advocated for this freedom that shall not be infringed upon.
Richard Henry Lee, the Virginia delegate to the Continental Congress, noted at the time that,
“to preserve Liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”
James Madison said in the Federalist Papers that the 2nd Amendment preserves,
“the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation…(where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
Noah Webster observed that,
“before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.”
Patrick Henry argued that the power to resist oppression rested entirely on the right to bear arms, saying,
“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.”
The possession of individual arms by the citizens of this country was the last line of defense against an evil government. It was reported that during the 2nd World War, that Japan dared not invade the continental United States, as they knew that there would be a gun behind every blade of grass. Census of gun owners in this country has put the amount of guns in the possession of ordinary citizens in the neighborhood of 300 million firearms of different calibers.
If you look down through history, the only way that a dictatorship could rise to power was to disarm its citizen. Nazi Germany understood this concept early in the coming to power of Adolf Hiter. Likewise, Stalin and Lenin also recognized the need to remove any effectual resistance to their tyranny.
My family has many law enforcement personal within the ranks of police and the highway patrol, but that does not preclude a runaway police that do not follow their oath to “Protect and to Serve”. Even the innocent people of New York and Los Angeles have reason to fear the police. Not just the criminals who break laws, but the average citizen. As we know, not all people in law enforcement follow the rules of the law, as one bad apple can spoil the whole barrel in the eyes of the people.
Communities around this country are justifiably hesitant to give up their weapons and allow only the police to protect them, or to be at the mercy of law enforcement. Let me clarify that statement. By definition, law enforcement is powerless to act UNTIL after the crime has been committed. Police cannot protect individuals in every case, but prosecute after the crime has already been committed. Which in the case of murder, is little comfort to the victim.
In America, burglars aren’t sure if homeowners are armed or not, but the odds favor there being at least one gun in the house. So they avoid burglarizing occupied homes. Only thirteen percent of US burglaries are against occupied homes. Burglars are reluctant to invade an occupied home because they might get shot. One out of every 31 burglars gets shot. That is about the equal to the burglar’s odds of being sent to prison.
North of the border in countries like Canada and across the big pond to England, citizens are most vulnerable in their own homes. Home invasions (burglaries) became the crime of choice among criminals who became the embodiment of the slogan, ‘when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.’
We could enumerate many modern civilizations who have been conquered by dictators who removed their ability to defend themselves against a despotic government. I say all this, to say this. There is coming a end time power that will take away all the rights of every human being on this planet. What is it that keeps that power at bay, at least in this country?
THE COMING RISE OF THE ANTI-CHRIST.
We know that the Bible speaks of an end time authority that will rule over this whole earth. So how does these two men take on the whole world and conquer the common man? I submit that the power of personal protection being taken away by repealing individual rights. That would be the beginning of the end of this Republic, should the nation fall for the lie of guns kill people, not people kill people, by whatever means they can devise. Be it not a gun, then they have a knife, a blunt instrument, or even pushing someone off a cliff to fulfill their evil desire of mayhem. The coming dictator will impose laws to rule every man or woman without opposition.
14 “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:14-17)
We can see the beginning of the end for the democracies across the Atlantic, that are being overrun with lawlessness. Muslim invasion is causing untold personal destruction of individual liberties that is changing how the governments of many European countries that ignore laws that bring on tyranny. The gun control crowd advocates argue that the 2nd Amendment gives the right to keep and bear arms to a well regulated MILITIA, and not to the ‘people’. According to this interpretation, the 2nd Amendment gives the government the right to keep and bear arms via the National Guard, but not the people. As it is in Europe, the slippery slope to locale tyranny begins with disarming the population so there is no active opposition to their rule.
The active desire to abolish the ability of this country to protect itself from lawlessness is the goal of the One World advocates to remove the last obstacle to their nefarious designs of a Globalist “utopia”. The United States stands astride that path that leads to their “socialist/communist” desires. Every time that something bad happens that involves a gun of any kind, they are the first to jump on the bandwagon, even before the victims families have even had time to mourn their loss. “Never let a crisis go to waste” was and is their battle cry. The silliness of the argument to destroy the 2nd amendment is obvious to anybody but a liberal or an activist judge. Why would the government give itself the right to bear arms by Constitutional amendment, since the Constitution already gives it the right to do so in order to ‘provide for the common defense’?
But that has been the prevailing legal opinion since the passage of the Brady Bill. That the right to bear arms is granted to the government via a ‘well-regulated militia’ by the 2nd Amendment.
According to Title 10 of the United States Code:
(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
(b) The classes of the militia are-
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.
In other words, the ‘militia’ and ‘the people’ mean the same thing.
TEN REGIONS OF THE ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT
We read in the Bible, that in the end of days that this world will divided up into 10 regions that will be ruled eventually, by one man, who the Bible calls the Anti-Christ. Daniel prophesied of this coming 10 regions when he interpreted the dream of King Nebuchadnezzer and his great image of an idol.
31 “Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.
32 This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.” (Daniel 2:31-34)
The dream interpreted to be ten regions of this end time world that will have 10 kings that will rule over them, but they will give their rule to one man with absolute power.
“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.” (Revelation 13:1-3)
TRIBULATION COVERS THE WHOLE EARTH.
The rise of the Anti-Christ begins the escalating terror that will cover the whole earth. Many will be enamored with this false god on earth, who, with Satan’s help, will deceive those whose only desire is to continue in their lawless ways. But what about those who defy the man, or the authorities who do the bidding of the Beast Power? These are those who refuse his mark and refuse to bow the knee to his image and those who do not follow the demands of the false prophet.
7 “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (Revelation 13:7-8)
Think for a minute, how would a power that comes to rule over the United States, whatever its form, would be able to stand against 300 million guns trained at them? How would a citizenry be taken hostage by a despot that rules from headquarters somewhere in this world, be it Rome, Mecca, or even New York? All have been investigated as possible centers of power. If history is any indication of what becomes of a nation that is unarmed to prevent tyranny, then that history is staring us right in the face and is played out on our electronic connections to what is happening in this country and around the world.
In my 65 plus years, I have seen many things that have befallen this country, and see its slow spiral into oblivion, but until recently, she has risen to combat the forces of evil, BUT in the last 15 years, we have seen the downward spiral accelerate to unmanageable levels that only seem to get worse as time goes by. I have seen the call for a One World Government in this symbol of world unity known as the United Nations. The idea and the proclamation of Agenda 30 and Sustainable Development that proposes decreasing the population of this earth to no more than 500 million people, worldwide.
To accomplish that, they would have to exterminate 6.5 billion people. To me, and I pray you who are reading this, is madness and genocide of whole races of people. How are those who will die in the coming Tribulation stand up against such madness? Without the ability to resist the evil that will cover this whole earth, they will have nothing at their disposal to even mount a weak defense.
OUR RIGHTS ON THE CHOPPPING BLOCK
I have studied the history of anti-gun legislation and anti-gun court cases and reached the following conclusion:
“Our examination of the original meaning of the Amendment provides extensive reasons to conclude that the Second Amendment secures an individual right, and no persuasive basis for either the collective-right or quasi-collective-right views.”
The memorandum was titled; “Whether the 2nd Amendment Secures an Individual Right” and conspicuously put the conclusion in the subtitle; “The right of the individual is to bear arms.”
Other than that, the media seems to have spiked the story. To the liberal left, gun control is more than an issue, it is a matter of doctrine.
Gun control is once again on the radar screen for the advancement of the coming socialist agenda and the seed for the furtherance of the coming One World Government. Many people realize the closeness of the hour and how in your next breath, the rise of the Anti-Christ will be here, BUT praise God, that something else will come before the time rears its ugly head to rule for 7 years.
6 “And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,” (2nd Thessalonians 6-9)
The Holy Spirit is the only Spirit that withholds back the coming revealing of the Anti-Christ and his Satanic rule and is found in every born again Christian still on earth. ….we are inching closer with every tragedy or lawless deed by evil men, and the evil men that are housed in Congress that fill this swamp known as Washington D.C. Since it is near an impossible feat to drain the cesspool swamp we have allowed to fester beyond of any ability to turn back the page to a happier, more secure time, we are becoming ripe for the downfall of this nation…Many forces are trying to accomplish that, but the Holy Spirit is not allowing that until one event causes the implosion of this countries economic stability and that of the world.
50 “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.” (1st Corinthians 15:50-54)
The destruction of the freedoms we have enjoyed for all my life, and the life of anyone who is reading this message is on the call for its removal from the life of every man and woman on this planet, and will succumb to the coming New World Order, when, I believe the Bride of Christ is removed from this earth. Then the realization of Sustainable Development and Agenda 2030 will be on the rode to fulfillment as the earth is cleansed of what we have been called “the deplorables”. Life will change dramatically for anyone who is left on this earth to whether the coming changes to your way of life.
The worldview is rapidly changing, and the removal of our freedoms is the avenue to accomplish the coming rule of the Anti-Christ. I believe it will start with disarming Americans, followed by freedom of religion, which is also under attack. Gun control is a front for the advancement of the socialist agenda. Giving in to the idea that guns are dangerous concedes to the notion that it is better to let some lowlife steal your property, rape your wife, and beat you half to death than it is to expedite his passage into the next world.
(Your property was all gained at his expense anyway, so in a moral sense, he’s entitled to it as much as you are.) That is their belief by their actions in those who oppose our God given freedoms.
A NEW WORLD IS ON THE HORIZON
Although the world is becoming more lawless and evil abounds within our shores, it beckons the belief that the return of Jesus is right at the door. ….Jesus said that when the fig tree blooms, then those who are alive at this time will not pass away until Jesus is back on earth, reigning and ruling for a thousand years.
32 “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.” (Matthew 24:32-34)
That generation of those who saw the fig tree bloom, which is Israel is now in its 70th year and ends in May of this year, 2018. That is what God told us in Psalm 90 was the years of a generation, only 80 years, by strength which is full of sorrow and then we fly away. The symptoms of our soon removal from this earth keep stacking up every where we look….it doesn’t matter what part of the world you look at, as the words of your Bible cry out to us, SOON, VERY SOON.
Will you be ready for the coming of the One who was prophesied to come when the world is in the condition you see her?
36 “For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.”(Hebrews 10:36-37)
Yes, Jesus will come and not tarry, even though there are some who scoff at such a thought. But will you believe that Jesus is the Source of the Victory over this sinful world and the Rapture of the Church of the Living God and to dwell with our Blessed Hope?
11 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” (Titus 2:11-14)
How will you be ready for the appearing of our Blessed Hope? Only one way that you can have the assurance of being found in His grace and mercy.
16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (John 3:16-18)
And then confess to those around you what God has done for you, through Jesus Christ our Lord….for we must confess Jesus to others, and never deny Him.
8 “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”(Romans 10:8-10)
GET READY, FOLKS. The time of our departure is only a heart beat away. Ask youself….ARE YOU READY??? Make sure that you are following Jesus as your Lord and Savior, having repented of your sins, THEN, my friend..you are indeed…READY…
Come Lord Jesus.
