Is That You, Big Brother?

“It is discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.” Noel Coward

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” Adolf Hitler

George Orwell’s 1984 introduced the neologism “Big Brother” into our language, psyches and culture. Big Brother was the dictator of Orwell’s totalitarian state in which everyone was under constant surveillance, and thereby under the control of the state. While many perceive Orwell as being ahead of his time, in fact, he was late by several millennia. As it turns out, Big Brother literally is our big brother, according to the Biblical record. This leads us to the question, why are the leaders of the West of one mind in undermining the freedom and liberties of their citizens, and contravening the rule of law while conducting wars on a perpetual basis, both domestic and foreign? The clear answer is found in the Biblical record's end-time prophecies, especially the books of Revelation, Daniel, Isaiah and Ezekiel.

The Genesis Birthright, The Blind Man’s Elephant

Our story is non-fiction. While the names have changed, no one is innocent. And it is far more intriguing and meaningful in our every day lives than any fiction. Close to a hundred million copies of this story are sold every year. Because the body of this story is scattered in the pages of the Biblical record in bits and pieces like a puzzle, we are oblivious to its film noir essence not unlike a person who is shocked to find out that their quiet next-door neighbor has a cellar full of buried bodies. We are about to put those bits and pieces together. We will form a very clear picture that is of great importance for us today. And we will discover that everything is not as it appears.

One World Peace And Security

Every year we hear about someone predicting “the end of the world.” In 1514, Pope Leo X wrote, “I will not see the end of the world, nor will you my brethren, for its time is long in the future, 500 years hence.” Now whether or not he was making a ballpark 500-year prognostication about the "war to end all wars," or he was being specific, we have no lack of yearly “end of the world” predictions. A Cambridge University professor claimed in 2014 that we would have a “Doomsday” moment, rather than a full blown doomsday, which is supposed to determine whether or not the 21st century will be “full of violence and poverty or will be peaceful and prosperous.” [Doomsday Moment]. From all accounts a few years on, we got violence and poverty.
