Is That You, Big Brother?
“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 presently invisible controlling force behind the invasive State and mega-corporations, aka the "Deep State" [now reportedly more than 3000 domestic government agencies and private companies housed increasingly in fortified facilities] has occupied just about every aspect of our lives, not because we could be suspected of terrorism, but for merely being a law-abiding citizen. [Big Brother Can Pick You Out Of A Crowd Without Seeing Your Face]. Absent our explicit consent, our growing surreptitious lack of privacy includes monitoring and recording our computer use, phone calls, emails and tweets. It includes watching us with cameras on the streets, in the cars we drive and in the stores we visit, to the purchases we make and recording our on-line searches. Most notably it invades us at "airport security," which in reality is a covert portal leading to eventually controlling the free movement of its citizens just like the old Soviet Union. And given the apparent ease of ISIS's ability to bomb airports under the noses of high alert security forces, it would not be a surprise to see airport "security" extended to roadside entry check points. [TSA Checkpoints Outside]. At this rate, we may end up checking into airports three days early to catch a flight.The USA's TSA initiated, a few years ago, its first statewide VIPR or Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response on the highways of Tennessee, inspecting trucks and cars according to Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn. [See VIPR]. Regular inspections and pat downs on the highways no doubt are on the books for future implementation when the time is right. And how long is it before government issued security passes are required to cross from state to state on federal highways? Or mandating driverless cars so we lose our freedom of travel all in the convenient name of the never-ending national security state and “war on terror” by the friendly folks at the Department of Homeland Security and the rest of the Deep State? However, we need to ask the big question, securing the homeland for whom … the 99%, that's us, or the 1%, Big Brother?
To understand that Big Brother literally is our big brother, we need to understand the key story line, in terms of current day implications, running through the Biblical record from Genesis to Revelation. A detailed look at the history of this story line is found in chapter six of The Blind Man’s Elephant, which is now a complimentary PDF on our Home page. The chapter is called The Genesis Birthright. The two brothers involved in Genesis [See Gen. 25:19-34] are the same two involved in our Big Brother society today, as well as in the cataclysmic events of Revelation, aka the Apocalypse. Big Brother in this case is the sixth head of the beast rising in Revelation 13:1, who will have gained dominion over his younger brother, that’s us, as was foretold when the birthright and inheritance were passed from father to son millennia ago.
While these events began in the Biblical record’s text in Genesis 27, they are vitally relevant for us, coming to fruition in the 21st century. [Cannibalizing Our Own Heritage]. It begins with Abraham’s son Isaac, “And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see ….” Isaac knew his death was near, so he called for his sons to pass along the birthright. The eldest son was Esau, whose name was changed to Edom. His younger brother was Jacob, whose name became Israel. Israel had 12 sons. The Jews descended from Israel’s son Judah, the House of Judah, are only one of those sons. Today, according to the Biblical record, ten of Israel’s sons, including the Jews, have national identities. [See Gen. 49; please read the Feature article, Galilee Of The Gentiles, and see the easy to follow historical flow chart in our book, The Curious Elephant, also at the bottom of the Feature article, The Tale Of Two Covenants].
Esau, as the firstborn of the non-identical twin brothers, hence our “big brother,” was entitled to the birthright, which meant the greater, dominant portion of the inheritance. Through circumstances, Esau found himself near death. And as the birthright would do him no good dead, he sold the birthright to his brother Jacob, as we’re told, for some red stew [hence the name change to Edom, which means red]. After recovering from his close encounter with mortality, seller’s remorse set in and Edom neglected to tell dad about this small, but history altering change in the birthright status that has reverberated into our daily lives about 4000 years later. Jacob, therefore, was forced to resort to pretending to be Esau to get what was sold to him. We pick up the story in Genesis 27:28, where Isaac is passing the birthright to his son. “Therefore may God give you of the dew of heaven, of the fatness of the earth, and an abundance of grain and wine. Let peoples serve you, and nations bow down to you. Be master over your brethren, and let your mother's sons bow down to you. Cursed be everyone who curses you, and blessed be those who bless you!”
Now when we stop and contemplate what this entails, "the fatness of the Earth," it is the abundance of food, and a vast source of globe encircling wealth that is possessed, though to a lesser extent each day, by the descendants of Israel. Peoples and nations would bow down to all Israel’s sons, which included being master over his brother Esau as well. [See British Empire: Foundation Of The Modern World; also the Feature article, Is The US (and UK) In End-times Bible Prophecy?]. So not only did Esau lose out on the world's wealth, and the prosperity that comes from the earth, he lost out on being lord and master too. This fact was not lost on Esau/Edom then, nor is it now. As the apostle Paul wrote, “For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.” [Heb. 12:17].
This loss has eaten away at Edom ever since. And what was Edom’s consolation prize? “Then Isaac his father answered and said to him: "Behold, your dwelling shall be of the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above. By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother; and it shall come to pass, when you shall have dominion, that you shall break his yoke from your neck." [Gen. 27:39, 40]. As we read in the New Testament, "With the conviction of the truth [faith], Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come." [Heb. 11:20]. Those "things to come" have arrived. [See the Feature article, Why Do We Believe The Lies?].
Today, Edom lives in the same geographic areas that were given as a blessing to all Israel, all ten nations as Israel told his sons. That is, they primarily reside in the current-day nations, plural, of Israel. All these centuries Edom has seen and touched what could have been his. And he is determined to get it back. Edom makes his living by the sword, which is to say nowadays, the business of war, the buying and selling of all things military, including private mercenary corporations, and encompassing all the attendant business economies such as banking and economic sanctions, communication and even integrating higher education into its sphere in our colleges and universities.
This has gotten so blatant, and hypocritical, that Edom, the white Zionist Globalists [see the Sneakers article, Ezekiel's Prophetic Headlines], have turned college campuses and schools [Anti-Christian Indoctrination] into reeducation centers in order to get those of the House of Israel to turn against their own God-given inheritance. [Reeducation Centers; also Readin', Writin' And Gender Bendin']. The effect this is having on our young people is now becoming evident. [Freaking Out At Beach Balls; College Professors Against Free Speech]. And now it is trickling down into high schools. [See University; High School]. It is no coincidence that the US has become the world's number one warring country, especially noticeable since the Bush-Cheney invasion of Iraq, but continuing on with Obama and Trump without so much as a hiccup. [See the Feature article, The War Dispatches].
But in doing so, Edom shall be in a subservient and covert position to all his brother Israel’s sons … until he gains dominion over them. [See the Feature article, Why Do We Believe The Lies?]. Ironically, Edom is using our birthright inheritance to finance his empire and we're none the wiser. [More Than Half Of US Budget Goes To Military]. Once he has sufficient dominion, then he shall break our yoke from his neck. When he does so, it will be literally as our “Big Brother,” the sixth beast of Revelation, Babylon the Great. Again, please read the sixth chapter, as well as the lead-up chapter five, of The Blind Man’s Elephant for a thorough discussion of the pertinent Biblical prophecies and historical context covering a 4000-year period. The first coming of Christ was of pivotal significance in these events concerning us in our age. [See the Feature article, Obadiah And The Prophetic Parable Of The Tares].
Edom is swiftly gaining on his goal of dominion over his brother's nations. Even a perfunctory reading of our current domestic and international events [for example, see Leaders Selling Soul], particularly the economy wrecking wars, giving sanctuary to terrorists, frequent false flag attacks and non-Christian refugees flooding our nations, shows us that what we read in Revelation 17 is no longer prophecy, but fact. "For God has put in their hearts [the leaders of the House of Israel ... US, UK and Western Europe] to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom [their power and authority] to the beast [Edom], until the words of God shall be fulfilled." [Rev. 17:17]. The words of God will continue to be fulfilled from now until Christ's return.
It should be noted that by the first century, Edom, in the person of Herod the Great, had gained dominion over the Jews, the House of Judah. He was made King of Judea by proclamation of the Roman Senate. It was the Edomite Herod who sought to kill Christ as a young child. To the world, the tares of Edom, aka Zionists, Globalists, neocons, are mixed into the wheat of Judah, and are seen as Jews today. [See Rev. 3:9; also Zionism And Judaism Two Different Things, also the Sneakers article, Tail Wagging The Dog?]. And they are very close to gaining dominion over the House of Israel. [See Policy Elites Running US; also Shape Of Stars On US Passport].
As a result of these perpetual wars, the leaders of the Western countries are, and will continue to be, in agreement about a never-ending assault on the rights and liberties, both political and financial, of their citizens. These same wars have produced a flood of refugees, including trained terrorists, crossing our borders. So we can expect more attacks, which will be answered with a call for further loss of liberties "to protect us." In this reciprocal fashion, our liberties are taken away little by little by the "security state." We are oblivious to it all like frogs in a pot of ever-warming water. This is done in the name of fighting terrorists, of our own making, due to the West's seeking regime change, in their quest for world domination, through sanctions, military arms and war in Shiite Syria and Iraq in cooperation with their Sunni allies, and Saudi Arabia. This is our daily "never-ending war on terrorism." But it will end when Edom has gained dominion, when we have lost all our liberty and freedom to our Big Brother. The modern day genesis of Genesis 27:40 was 9/11. It's part of the subtle, deceitful strategy by our adversary.
The leaders of Edom, the sixth head of the resurrected, "deadly wound healed" beast [see the Sneakers article, Who Inflicted The Beast's Deadly Wound?], Babylon the Great, will be given absolute authority over the “Christian” nations for three and a half years, at the end of which time Christ will return. And as we are the descendants of the House of Israel, daily we are herded one step closer to our ultimate demise by our feckless leaders, handing over our inheritance to our Big Brother just as we are told in Revelation. [Google Wants To Herd Us Into Their Pen]. Combined, the Houses of Israel and Judah make up all Israel, or the sons of Israel as mentioned in Genesis 27. [See the Feature article, We're Abraham's Seed And Heirs]. Presently, both Houses, Israel and Judah, have become blinded to the meaning of these events in regards to Biblical prophecy.
The difficulty Christians have, as mentioned in our books and articles on many previous occasions, is that we are totally oblivious to many key points of information in the Biblical record. The cornerstone of this ignorance concerns our Biblical ancestry as the House of Israel. [See the Feature article, Moving Forward]. This despite Christ’s very plain spoken and concise statement, “I am sent only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” [Mat. 15:24]. Again, for those readers who will point to John 3:16, read John 3:19 in context in our Feature article, Mirror, Mirror On The Wall. Our collective modern day theological energies have been wasted, being nothing more than a wild goose chase in pursuit of false doctrines. Thus, we've allowed Big Brother to set us running a fool’s errand, whereby we’ve abandoned our birthright responsibilities, making his task all the easier, and our increasing burden all the more onerous. [See the Feature article, Damascus A Heap Of Ruins].
If we understood our ancestral roots and role in this critical Biblical story, we would be fully aware of what’s taking place all around us on a daily basis. But we continually refuse to pay attention to the forest because we have our noses firmly stuck to the trees of deceit, all those temporal temptations that keep us from seeing and understanding the big picture. And the pace of this deleterious change is accelerating as we discussed in the beginning of this article. No matter where we look, economically, socially, morally, technologically and militarily, we have lost grip over our Genesis birthright, except in name only, because forsaking the truth of Christ’s words, we’ve allowed ourselves to be hoodwinked into ignorance by our Big Brother Edom in order for him to gain dominion over us exactly as the Genesis 27 prophecy says.
However, the prophecy in Genesis 27 is not the only prophecy concerning Edom and the House of Israel. Among the many is the prophet Ezekiel, who was sent to warn us in these end times regarding our current day situation. “Moreover he [our LORD] said unto me [Ezekiel], Son of man, eat that you find; eat this roll, and go speak unto the House of Israel.” [Eze. 3:1]. The beginning of Ezekiel chapter 36 is most poignant in this regard. As you come upon the secular references listed herein, it would be good to open them to get a feel for what they say, which support Ezekiel’s words to us. You can go back and read them at length.
Ezekiel 36, verse 1: Also, you son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel, and say, You mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD:
Mountains are a metaphor. They refer to the leaders, the ruling class of the nations of the House of Israel, particularly those in government and the churches.
Verse 2: Thus says the Lord GOD; Because the enemy has said against you, ‘Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:’
We need to keep in mind that all the events being addressed here by Ezekiel are led by our antichristian “Big Brother” Edom. The enemy is our brother who wants back the birthright that he sold to Jacob/Israel. [See again chapter 6, The Genesis Birthright, in The Blind Man’s Elephant for details, a complimentary copy at the bottom of the Home page]. And as to his inhabiting all the ancient high places, or holy places of his brother, Israel, he is going about this in a methodical manner. [Taking Over The Historical Lands].
Our brother Edom is more well-known by his secular name as Zionists. Zionist Edom, under the current leadership of Netanyahu’s Likud party are making bold moves to control all the historical ancient places of Israel, especially now that the US has "agreed" to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Zionist state of Israel. Make no mistake, the nation-state of Israel is not a Jewish state. It is not based on the Old Testament Judeo law ethic. Zionists use the term Jews to benefit their goals of dominion because we "Christian” nations are blind to our ancestral identity, and therefore are blind to our brother Edom’s as well. [Change in Middle East].
Today the Zionists rule over the nation state of Israel. They are not descendants of the House of Judah. They indeed are in control of the ancient high places, the holy places of our ancestral lands. They have manipulated the leaders of the US. And in so doing, they have made Jerusalem their capital city. This is an interim move by the unseen beast, the Wicked (lawless) one, [2 Ths. 2:8-10]. When he is no longer held back, then this Lawless One will be made known to the world. It is then that Jerusalem will be seen as the capital of Babylon the Great.
Verse 3: Therefore prophesy and say, Thus says the Lord GOD; Because they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that you might be a possession unto the residue of the gentiles [non-Christian war survivors, i.e., refugees] and you are taken up in the lips of talkers, and are an infamy [slandered by] of the people:
This verse reads like our daily headlines. We are being made desolate by Edom who lives by the sword. [Gen. 27:40]. The movers and shakers behind these Middle East wars are Zionists who control the military-industrial-financial-media complex of the West. And the prophetic impetus of our daily events began in earnest on 9/11. Our nations's financial well-being are being bled dry by the military industrial complex thirst for war, and the central banksters who finance them with our inheritance. [Lies Of The Corrupt Elite]. We are run by our enemy, the destructive elite for their destructive ends. As the Zionist Netanyahu was quoted as saying, "Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away." [See Blow Away]. If we don't recognize and understand the Edomite wolf in Jewish sheep's clothing, then we are indeed blind sheep. [See Zionists Are Not Jews Or Of Israel].
Swallowed you up, [Heb. שָׁאַף shâʼaph] literally means "panted after" as a beast after its prey, thirsting for blood. Of course, this is driven by Edom's quest to take Israel's birthright, our inheritance. As Edom says about this, "I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me [as a predator stalking its prey]: for I will tread them [House of Israel] in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment." [Isa. 63.3; see the Feature article, Isaiah 63: Big Brother The Prophetic 21st Century Antichrist].
This is exactly what Edom has been doing since Herod "the Great," the Edomite ruler in Jerusalem in the first century. Our inheritance, and our blood, have become a prey after which our enemy has sought. And we are spilling it in his wars. They are swallowing us up on every side. And they are about to fully succeed as the prophecies tell us. It is the prophesied time of Jacob's [Israel's] trouble. [Jer. 30:7]. Though a remnant of Israel shall survive. "And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase." [Jer. 23:3]. However, this is after what we commonly refer to as the Apocalypse. "And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel." [Rev. 7:4].
The reference here in verse 3, "that you might be a possession unto the residue of the gentiles" has become all too obvious. Europe has been inundated by the Merkelization of its nations by refugees. [See Invasion of Europe]. And now, it appears that not only has this onslaught grown significantly, especially in Sweden [Sweden In Name Only], our blind leaders are bringing Trojan Horses into our cities under the guise of humanitarian concerns. [See Jihadists Coming and Resettled In US, Canada, UK And Germany].
And it's not just this, but we are "taken up in the lips of talkers, and are an infamy of the people." This is to say that our identity is being verbally attacked. We are slandered for being white, which now is allegedly at the root of all evilness. [See the Sneakers article, Continuing Benefits Of "White Privilege"]. Edom is behind this slander as we mention in the Sneakers article. The children of the House of Israel, the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Western Europe, are subject to the lies and deceits on every side. Everything under the Sun is “the white man’s fault.” Our culture, our laws, our society, the slander directed at our skin color, morality, sexual identity, our birthright wealth taken by the banksters and Wall Street, everywhere we look we are fenced in, attacked by our enemy, Edom. [See Losing The Fight Against Multicultural Concessions].
This is one reason why people ask who runs the foreign policy of the US, UK and EU because it appears that Zionist Israel calls the shots particularly with the US. And in this, they are correct. But we must never forget that this prophecy is directed at us, the House of Israel, by the hand of our LORD and Savior because we have forsaken the love of the truth of the word of God.
And now we are on the road to becoming the possession of the survivors of those wars we started on behalf of our enemy Edom, who lives by the sword. [See Gen. 27: 40, 41 Big Brother]. Sweden is probably the foremost example of where we are headed at this point in time with the UK not far behind. And now those survivors are being used to infiltrate our nations, undermining our weakened state from within, our societal levels of morality sunk to the depths, accepting lies in place of the truth both from our government and churches. It's like the barbarian invasion in the final stages of the western Roman Empire. [Fall Of Roman Empire].
Our leaders are blinded to this as they welcome war-hardened terrorists into our midst. [See the Feature article, Revelation 17: Big Brother, The Beast Of Babylon]. Since the false flag of 9/11, the nations of the House of Israel have been lied into Middle East wars under the direction of Edom. Edom is the emerging sixth empire, the prophetic "one is" of Revelation 17, Babylon the Great. And this is all done as it is written in the prophecies because we have been the most foolish of peoples on the Earth. Christianity has been duped. Already we are celebrating a Babylonian goddess. Her name is Easter. [See the Feature article, Easter, Babylon And The Antichrist].
And while this has been set in motion by Edom, we are at fault. We have abandoned the love of the truth of the word of God for the work of our hands, mammon. [See the Sneakers article, A LIfe And Death Pickle Of A Predicament]. As a result of our errant choices, like our ancestors of the House of Israel who were divorced from God and suffered the consequences, [See again the Feature article, Damascus A Heap Of Ruins], as our daily events progressively turn worse, we are told by our Lord and Savior, “I have done these things to you.” [Jer. 30:15].
Verse 4: Therefore, you mountains [leaders] of Israel, hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus says the Lord GOD to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became a prey and derision [mockery] to the residue of the heathen that are round about;
This is addressed not only to the leaders of the House of Israel, but to all those below this level of leadership throughout our lands. Our nations have become a mockery to the values of democracy, to which our governments give lip service. The US uses the term democracy as a call to war, when in fact our nations have ceased being democracies. [See Favoring Extremism While Giving Lip Service To, Lying About Democracy].
Verse 5: Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea [Edom], which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.
As A.R. Fausset points out in his commentary on Ezekiel 36:5, he says, “ … to cast it out for a prey--that is, to take the land for a prey, its inhabitants being cast out. Or the land is compared to a prey cast forth to wild beasts.”
Interesting that the beast, Babylon the Great, with its new law, essentially is casting out the Palestinians inhabitants from this territory as Ezekiel said. [The Ultimate Racist Colony Of Edom]. But this is not a reference solely to the ancient land of Israel, but to our current day lands as well. The nations of the House of Israel, are becoming Edom's possession, ["when you have gained dominion ..." Gen. 27:40] as they move to become Babylon the Great.
Edom, the Zionists are gleeful of their progress in taking over the historical ancient high places that once was their brother Israel’s possession. It is now their own. And they are ever so close to gaining overt control of our modern day nations as well. And it will continue to be so until Babylon the Great is established, and then destroyed at the return of Christ. [Rev. 18].
We have rapidly transitioned from the relatively tranquil vision in Huxley’s Brave New World to the draconian vision of Orwell’s 1984. To borrow a colloquialism, while Edom is still in the closet of the Brave New World, the open door is widening more each day. We are witnessing Big Brother’s transitioning out of the closet into the totalitarian state of 1984 and Revelation 13 in his ends justifies any means to gain dominion. The current circumstances in the US, with the attacks on President Trump's nationalistic policies versus his predecessor's globalist policies, is an example of the struggle between these two brothers millennia after the Genesis birthright prophecy was told to his two sons by Isaac. Regardless, all roads lead to the same place.Huxley’s Brave New World was a world of peace, a passive place where consumer goods were abundant due to the State maintaining the size of its population within the capacity of available resources. [See Elites Plan For Population Control]. Citizens were encouraged to become enthusiastic consumers of their daily bread, as were Americans by President "Nothing To See Here" Bush in the aftermath of 9/11. [He Told The Sheep To Go Shopping]. However, those in charge of the World State controlled everyone’s life. This is Huxley’s version of controlling the masses for the ultimate benefit of the one percent. While this is a very simplified explanation of Huxley’s work, it is well worth reading his non-fiction reflections on where our society was headed in his book, Brave New World Revisited. One would think he had copies of our current day news media and magazines fifty years ago.
About fifty years before Huxley’s 1931 fictional work, the final novel of Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov, at one point explores the idea of the masses being addicted to a stable supply of their daily bread in preference to personal freedom and liberty as Huxley wrote of at length. It's sort of the same antichristian message delivered in the popular children's book, Where The Wild Things Are. The following excerpt from The Brothers Karamazov’s book V, chapter 5 is a soliloquy by a cardinal of the Roman church, the Grand Inquisitor, directed at Christ who, upon revisiting the Earth during the 15th century Spanish Inquisition, is arrested as a heretic. Dostoevsky, it should be noted, in his personal life was a disciple of Christ. Dostoevsky’s cardinal makes the point that when Christians are given the choice between spiritual freedom or the bread of the Earth, the God and mammon equation, we will choose mammon's bread of drudgery and servitude. And lo and behold, this is where we are today. [See 1 Sam. 8:10-20]. The reason for this is simple: the institution of Christianity, as it is manifested today, is irrelevant. Santa and the Easter Bunny are where we put our money. [See the Sneakers article, Got Milk?].
Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor asks Christ, “Judge Yourself who was right- You or he who questioned You then? [A reference to Satan, see Mat. 4:1ff]. Remember the first question; [“Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, ‘If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.’”] its meaning, in other words, was this: “You would go into the world, and are going with empty hands, with some promise of freedom which men in their simplicity and their natural unruliness cannot even understand, which they fear and dread, for nothing has ever been more insupportable for a man and a human society than freedom.
“But see You these stones in this parched and barren wilderness? Turn them into bread, and mankind will run after You like a flock of sheep, grateful and obedient, though for ever trembling, lest You withdraw Your hand and deny them Your bread. But You would not deprive man of freedom and did reject the offer, thinking, what is that freedom worth if obedience is bought with bread? You did reply that man lives not by bread alone. But do You know that for the sake of that earthly bread the spirit of the earth will rise up against You and will strive with You and overcome You, and all will follow him, crying, "Who can compare with this beast? He has given us fire from heaven!” Do You know that the ages will pass, and humanity will proclaim by the lips of their sages that there is no crime, and therefore no sin; there is only hunger?
“Feed men, and then ask of them virtue!” that's what they'll write on the banner, which they will raise against You, and with which they will destroy Your temple. Where Your temple stood will rise a new building; the terrible tower of Babel will be built again [Babylon the Great], and though, like the one of old, it will not be finished, yet You might have prevented that new tower and have cut short the sufferings of men for a thousand years; for they will come back to us after a thousand years of agony with their tower. They will seek us again, hidden underground in the catacombs, for we shall be again persecuted and tortured. They will find us and cry to us, “Feed us, for those who have promised us fire from heaven haven't given it!”
“And then we shall finish building their tower, for he finishes the building who feeds them. And we alone shall feed them in Your name, declaring falsely that it is in Your name. Oh, never, never can they feed themselves without us! No science will give them bread so long as they remain free. In the end they will lay their freedom at our feet, and say to us, “Make us your slaves, but feed us."
“They will understand themselves, at last, that freedom and bread enough for all are inconceivable together, for never, never will they be able to share between them! They will be convinced, too, that they can never be free, for they are weak, vicious, worthless, and rebellious. “You did promise them the bread of Heaven, but, I repeat again, can it compare with earthly bread in the eyes of the weak, ever sinful and ignoble race of man?“And if for the sake of the bread of Heaven thousands shall follow You, what is to become of the millions and tens of thousands of millions of creatures who will not have the strength to forego the earthly bread for the sake of the heavenly? [See Rom. 11:26]. Or do You care only for the tens of thousands of the great and strong, while the millions, for the sake of the great and strong? numerous as the sands of the sea, who are weak but love You, must exist only for the sake of the great and strong?
“No, we care for the weak too. They are sinful and rebellious, but in the end they too will become obedient. They will marvel at us and look on us as gods [see Dan. 11:36], because we are ready to endure the freedom, which they have found so dreadful and to rule over them, so awful it will seem to them to be free. But we shall tell them that we are Your servants and rule them in Your name. [This is a reference to the beast, and the false prophet, see The Lamb]. We shall deceive them again, for we will not let You come to us again [the return of Christ]. That deception will be our suffering, for we shall be forced to lie.” [Italics added]. And so it is, Big Brother lies to us daily, through government leaders, fake news mass media, and does so in Christ's name every Christmas and Easter. [See the Christmas and Easter articles in the Holidays section of the Feature Articles].
In referring to our Big Brother in the first century, Christ said, “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do … When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.” [John 8:44; see the Feature article, The Little Horn: First Century Antichrist].
Christ gave us spiritual freedom, our Christian liberty. “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” [Gal. 5:1]. Refusing the enterprise to remain resolute in the Spirit through the liberty of Christ provided us in the first century, we’ve become entangled again, slaves to the foibles of the flesh. [See Eph. 2:2, 3]. In this backsliding state, we can’t dare to call ourselves followers of Christ. To think otherwise, we deceive only ourselves, which, no doubt, brings joy to our Big Brother who is steadily gaining dominion over us.
We have walked away from this gift given to us by the blood of Christ. Faith, pistis, in the New Testament Greek, is defined as the conviction of the truth. Christ told us the truth. True freedom, the love of the truth, and the bread of life go together. They are two sides of the same coin. "Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?” [Mat. 6:25]. Well, not according to the interminable anti-faith Big Brother mass media that besieges us daily to think otherwise.
Our phenomenal failure here is the lack of faith on our part, which equates to a lack of the conviction of the truth. We don’t believe Christ. We aren’t convinced of the truth of his words. [See the Feature article, Why Do We Believe The Lies? and the Sneakers article, We Don't Believe You]. Bottom line, spiritually, we really don’t trust what Christ has told us, hence our folly with Satan's Santa and the Babylonian Easter Bunny. Yet, when all else is said and done, only the truth of his words shall remain. “Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” [Mat. 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33]. Therefore, which “bread” is it that has true and lasting value for us? [See the Feature article, Brown Paint: Quantum Potentialities].
First century Christianity has transmogrified into twenty-first century Churchianity with Christ nothing more than a product label. The deceitful bread of this world has stupefied us concerning the truth of Christ’s words, rendering them irrelevant in our daily lives. [See the Feature article, The Love Of the Truth]. We've lost our dynamic connection to Christ because we refuse to trust Christ when he plainly told us, “I am sent only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” [Mat. 15:24]. Choosing to walk away from this cardinal cornerstone truth, all our steps take us off the path that leads to the fullness of Christian life and a correct understanding of the prophetic events affecting us. [Mat. 7:14]. While we may wish to deny this point, as Christ told us, “Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith [the conviction of the truth] on the Earth?” [Luke 18:8; see the Sneakers article, Better Than Gold].
What Dostoevsky’s Cardinal Inquisitor is pointing out is that Christians are lacking in the conviction of the truth of Christ’s words, so much so that they give up their liberty in Christ for the deceit of the fables in order to cling to the false perception of this world’s “good life,” all the while becoming slaves to Babylon the Great. We've forsaken the love of the truth. And in so doing, we are losing our birthright autonomy to Edom.
It was in the late 1940's and early 1950's that Frank Sinatra, Roy Rogers and Gene Autry popularized the American song, "Home on the Range," with its lyrics "Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam and the deer and the antelope play. Where seldom is heard a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudy all day." In this relatively short space of time, the US has gone from the freedom of Home on the Range to Big Brother's Homeland Security. Under the guise to protect us from the big bad wolf, i.e., terrorists, we are being cowered into a corral because, being weak in the Spirit, we have become timid, fearful of our free-range liberty in Christ. We have become theological snowflakes. In the end, we will have so much security, we won't need liberty. Then, completely corralled, we sheep will be easy pickings for the beast's feast according to the prophecies. [See the Feature article, And Now, A Word From Our Sponsor].
As a result of having sold the birthright inheritance, Esau/Edom has harbored hatred towards us, the House of Israel and Judah, for millennia. We should be mindful of our Big Brother’s Biblical prophecy, “And Esau hated Jacob … Esau said in his heart, ‘The days of mourning for my father [Isaac] are at hand; then I will kill my brother Jacob.’” [Gen 27:41]. This prophecy was not fulfilled during the individual lifetimes of Edom and Israel. A descendant of Edom, King Herod the Great initiated the fulfilling of this prophecy in the first century, beginning with Christ’s first coming. [Read Mat. 2:16-18]. And it has continued in earnest over the past six centuries as the prophecies of the House of Israel becoming ten nations have been fulfilled. [See Dan. 7:24; also the Feature article, Ten Horns, Ten Nations]. And it will continue until Christ's return.
Now, nearing the end of this age, Edom is working to consign the House of Israel, the Christian nations, to the lowest rung on Maslow's hierarchy of needs by which men are motivated. When hope is abandoned, when the focus of our lives is only on the basic carnal needs of this life, then men sink into despair caring only for survival. It's "make us your slaves, but feed us." Whereas Edom alone has reserved for themselves the lofty top, the elite eye of Maslow's pyramid, the self-actualization of attaining a one world government. [See Maslow's]. It has been Edom's desire to achieve all that they set out to accomplish, which is to get back the Genesis birthright by breaking Israel's yoke off their neck. "They will marvel at us and look on us as gods, because we are ready to endure the freedom, which they have found so dreadful and to rule over them, so awful it will seem to them to be free." This sounds like an apt description of our situation as theological snowflakes today.
True freedom is embraced by sharing it with others. Freedom is not achieved by lies and deceit, which shackles the hearts and minds of men. For those who lie to enslave others are not free themselves. They are in servitude to their own illusions, weaknesses and fallibilities. The sixth head of the beast, Edom, serves their master, our adversary. [Rev. 13:1-4]. Freedom is offered by Christ to all Israel and to all those who have the love of the truth. This is why Christ made the point to those of Edom in the first century, "The truth shall make you free." [See John 8:31, 32]. True freedom is not of the kingdom of men, but of the kingdom of God. "And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God." [Luke 4:4]. Flesh and blood cannot inherit this kingdom, which shall not pass away. [Mat. 24:35].
As Christ enlightened us, "Therefore I say to you, 'Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?
"Which of you by thinking can add one cubit to his stature? And why think about your clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet I say to you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
"Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, By what means shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek); for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. But seek first the kingdom [Greek, basileia, power and authority] of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore, take no thought for tomorrow: for tomorrow shall take care for the things of itself. Sufficient to the day is the evil thereof." [Mat. 6:25-34]. The question for each of us, then, is "Do we have faith in Christ and a love of the truth sufficient to believe him?" And if our answer is yes, then let our actions speak for themselves.
From the beginning, the Christian age is one of intrigue and resolve on the part of our big brother, Edom. It is an end-times mystery of which Christians are woefully unaware. [See Rev. 17:5; also the Feature article, Revelation 17: BIg Brother]. It culminates in the events of the Apocalypse in the book of Revelation. Again, read chapter six, The Blind Man’s Elephant for a more complete understanding of these events and Edom.
For most, our myopic love of this world and its illusional riches have overwhelmed our conviction of the truth in Christ. It's no wonder we haven't an idea of the meaning of life on Earth or of the Christian era. We've lost our treasure map. [Mat. 13:44, Luke 18:22; also read the Sneakers article, His Treasured Possession]. As a result of our theological and prophetic bemusement, we are being led down the path to abject slavery and death at the hands of our big brother, Big Brother. Daniel and Revelation as well as Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and many of the Minor prophets tell us we have fallen away from following Christ with disastrous repercussions.
In our transformation period from the happy consumer largess of Huxley’s vision, which the US enjoyed beginning in the aftermath of WW2, the House of Israel is now transitioning to Orwell’s 1984, which is a much darker view of how a totalitarian state controls its citizens. It’s not with bread. “He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed … It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.” [Rev. 13:5, 7]. In case, we are wondering who really has the power, controlling the purpose of our perpetual wars, we should ask ourselves, who is that grants our oppressors their authority ... and why?
We need to be fully cognizant of the fact that this beast’s power is granted to him and authority given " ... to make war with the saints, and to overcome them." In other words, he has permission. As Jeremiah prophesied of our times quoting our LORD, “Why do you cry about your affliction? Your sorrow is incurable. Because of the multitude of your iniquities, because your sins have increased, I [Our LORD and Savior] have done these things to you.” [Jer. 30:15; also read the Feature articles, Christ Against Christians? and Our Christian Faith].
The deified leader of Orwell’s state is Big Brother, courtesy of the beast, war, and the false prophet, religion. In our real world version in the book of Daniel it reads, “He shall regard neither the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.” [Dan. 11:37]. Remember, Edom’s fathers are Abraham and Isaac. We are also told he “ … honors the god of fortresses ….” [Dan. 11:38; in addition to the Pentagon's 800-1000 or so overseas military bases, see Homeland]
In Orwell’s vision, war is never ending. Surveillance of citizens is ubiquitous. Families are broken apart. The educational system is used to subvert our children who no longer have family guidance. Technology has overtaken our lives. Deception, false flags, by the State and its propaganda outlets is the norm. This is the "freedom" Big Brother is selling us with his lies on a daily basis. It sounds exactly like our headlines and news today even incorporating “doublespeak” [from doublethink and newspeak, is language used to communicate one notion but means something quite opposite, i.e., a lie], with phrases such as “homeland security,” “PATRIOT Act,” “extraordinary rendition,” etc., which makes abrogating Constitutional rights and torture sound reassuring to our 21st century Christian sense of morality and simplistic flag-waving nationalism. It’s used to make it easier to get us sheep [Micah 2:12, “ … as the sheep of Bozrah”] into the corral by feeding us “true lies,” the bread of deceit. Bozrah was the capitol city of ancient Edom. Interestingly in Hebrew, bozrah has the double meaning of sheepfold and fortress.
It wasn’t until 2003, with the invasion of Iraq over the pretense of WMD [when it really was about Saddam's selling oil, not for petrodollars, but for euros, which would have started a "run on the bank" by other oil producing countries], that the US central banker "Masters of the Universe" overtly started their never-ending “war on terror” in one form or another. With the very large presence of computers and the Internet in our personal lives, the technological exodus from privacy to oversight, and eventual control by Big Brother, we know that these trending events are headed to the eventuality “ … that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” [Rev. 13:17; see Financial]. As our credit card and computer financial data are being embedded in secretive Fort Knox-like fortresses [are they expecting hackers suddenly to lay siege with cannons and catapults? ... probably], worldwide online buying and selling continues to be consolidated into fewer and fewer corporate entities, especially in the food sectors, monolithic control over our lives ultimately is the endgame. Earthly bread, in all its forms, is their bait. As unwitting, yet willing participants, we have lost sight of the fact that it’s about gaining dominion over our birthright and us. We are the sheep of Bozrah.
As mentioned above, our current day’s events all go back to the Genesis birthright sold by Edom to his brother, Israel, which passed to all 12 of his sons. As the prophetic events of Daniel and Revelation continue to unfold around us daily, ultimately leading to the decisive events we call the Apocalypse, whenever they may occur; we need to be cognizant of the fact that our “big brother” Edom literally is Big Brother.
As the prophet Isaiah wrote of this time period in his chapter 63, “Who is this who comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah, this one who is glorious in his apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength?— "I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save." This statement itself is an example of doublespeak and is shades of the Iraqi war R2P [Responsibility to Protect] post-invasion policy justification lie, as the pre-invasion WMD justification lie fell apart. The same "change the story" ploy to suit purposes is evident in Syria as well. [See again the Feature article, Isaiah 63: Big Brother, The Prophetic 21st Century Antichrist].
This attitude was also reflected in a comment made by the banker David Rockefeller in 1991 in Germany, “But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries. "I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save." Elites in London, Washington, Wall Street and the central banksters who cause the wars, who foment death and misery, are ready to save us from ourselves? How positively righteous of those one-percenters, especially in light of the fact that one-world bankers are the primary implementers in the imposition of severe sanctions on the financial institutions and corporations of any country who oppose their world government will. Think Ukraine, or Iran, or Libya to name a few. It’s like a mafia protection plan. Do it our way and we’ll save you. Don’t and we’ll destroy you. These guys aren’t your grandfather’s small town milquetoast bankers. [See the Sneakers article, One World Peace And Security].
Isaiah continues, “Why is your apparel red [Hebrew, אֱדֹם edom], and your garments like one who treads in the winepress?” Recall the birthright blessing to Edom’s brother Israel, “Therefore may God give you of the dew of heaven, of the fatness of the earth, and plenty of grain and wine.”
Edom, being the laborer rather than the master of the house, answers in verse 3, "I have trodden the winepress alone, and from the people [Hebrew, am, meaning kinsman] no one was with me. [Therefore] I have trodden them in my anger, [the nations of his brother Israel, “For He [Christ] said, ‘Surely they are My people, children who will not lie.’ So He became their Savior,” see verse 8] and trampled them in my fury; their blood is spattered upon my garments, and I have stained all my robes. For the day of vengeance is in my heart, and the year of my redeemed has come.” [Isa. 63:1-4]. What exactly is it here that Edom is ‘mighty to save?’
That day of vengeance and year of redemption of the birthright for Edom will culminate in the beginning of the three and a half years of dominion he is given, the advent of “The Apocalypse,” when the Constitution and democracy have been fully abrogated, and he has gained dominion over the “Christian” nations. “It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.” Remember, according to the prophecy in Genesis 27, big brother lives among us, however he does not share our moral values. And he still bears a great hatred towards us concerning the birthright as we’ve just read.
We would do well to pay attention to the bloodshed visited on other peoples and nations under the clandestine auspices of the elite non-elected manipulators of the government countermanding constitutional and international law as they go, as well as being cognizant of the newspeak, i.e. fake news, disseminated to us about such activities. One day our Big Brother, according to the prophecies, will visit these atrocities and worse upon us, being securely interred in the sheepfold, “… their blood … spattered upon my garments.” [For a secular current events analysis, see 1 percent].
"Then shall the king [of Babylon the Great, Edom] do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath [the climactic events of the Apocalypse] has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done." [Dan. 11:36]. And from the nations of Israel, 1.5 billion or so, only 144,000 shall survive these horrific events. [See Rev. 7:4-8]. The Biblical record, after all, is one book written to the same people.
Incrementally, our devolving society has been, and continues to be manipulated from within to weaken the resolve of holding fast our birthright, to divert us from the honest truth of our personal freedoms and liberty of the Spirit we have in Christ. Now lukewarm, we’ve come to preferentially enjoy the earthly bread of deceit to our ultimate detriment. [See Rev. 3:16-18]. We have no love for the truth of the word of God. It is exactly as Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor pointed out. Christianity, or should we say Churchianity, has made Christ the heretic. [See the Feature article, Our Corrupted Compass].
We should be mindful of the Biblical record’s saga of the Genesis Birthright that is in play today. The naïve children of the Houses of Israel and Judah are in a deadly chess match with our Grandmaster Big Brother, the beast, and we are clueless about the situation. [False Flags In US History]. And the vast majority won’t notice the effects of our ignorance until we get checkmated. So, what can we do? Will we stand up and recover our liberty? Will we be strong and exercise our freedom in Christ, which is the truth? Or have we become too apathetic that even seeing this we will fail to respond, ironically granting dominion by selling ourselves into slavery to our brother Edom for a “morsel of bread." So, while Esau/Edom sold the birthright for food, Jacob/Israel will give it back to Edom, "In the end they will lay their freedom at our feet, and say to us, 'Make us your slaves, but feed us.'" [See Controlling The World's Food Chain].
To answer the Grand Inquisitor’s question, “… what is to become of the millions and tens of thousands of millions of creatures who will not have the strength to forego the earthly bread for the sake of the heavenly?” we find our answer in the conviction of the truth. For the truth is, no one has to forego their earthly bread. It is a spirited matter of faith exercised in humility. “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. What man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?” [Mat. 7:7-9]. This is why Christ instructed us, each day when we pray, "Give us this day our daily bread ...." [Luke 11:3].
Yet, when we get caught up in the pervading daily diversions provided for us by Big Brother, it is easy enough to embrace the power of this world first. To return to our first century theological roots, we need to change our direction and priorities regarding the conviction of the truth, our faith in Christ’s words. As we noted above, "… seek first the kingdom, [the sovereign authority and power] of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” [Mat. 6:33]. Yet, true to the Grand Inquisitor's prognostication, we take a pass on accepting our incredible birthright opportunity whose blessings carry over into the ages to come.The word seek is zeteo in Greek. It is a verb. It means to seek in order to find. And it is based in holy curiosity. [See the Sneakers article, To The Moon]. We need to take the initiative and seek first the power and authority of God in our lives in order to find it. Lip service won’t cut it. Reading about it won’t cut it. Settling for the lies won't cut it. Bottom line, we have to put the conviction of the truth into action in our lives on a daily basis in order to remain free in the liberty given to us by Christ.
True Christianity of the first century is a joyful and blessed lifestyle, living the truth 24/7. Having forsaken this path, our twenty-first century Churchianity diet is going to church for an hour Sunday mornings, if that, and putting our money where our hearts are at Christmas and Easter. And we are experiencing the fruits of our wrong choices. It’s time we stand with Christ and the truth of his words. As the apostle Paul admonished us, “You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men.” [1 Cor. 7:23]. Christ will feed us with all we need when we trust in his words, the truth. Why, then, have we become the slaves of men?
The sad part of this story is that it we had all the blessings of God in our hands. Over the centuries, we’ve increasingly neglected to take Christ at his word. We’ve shunned the love of the truth. Our legacy is one of shame, casting aside Christ’s gift of life, both of this age and of those to come, in order to settle for the false fruits of this mortal existence. We’ve chosen the path that has led us away from what would have been a glorious and wonderful inheritance, instead choosing the chains of dominion our brother has prepared for us. We’ve thrown our birthright away because of our lack of faith in Christ. We’re now transitioning to Big Brother’s security state, with its false flags ops both foreign and domestic, to hurry us into the corral. This is not a good place to be. The crumbling and morally corrupt society we see around us, coupled with our growing lack of liberty is the result of our erroneous choices. These grievous events are screaming at us, yet we're deaf to their warning message. [See the "upon your seed forever" warning given to our ancestors by our LORD. Deu. 28:15-48].
Yet, for those who have the love of the truth, who grow daily in faith, the conviction of the truth, praying daily for guidance, we have this promise from our Lord and Savior. "We [the apostles as Paul is writing here about the year 50 CE] are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is befitting, because that your faith grows exceedingly, and the brotherly love of every one of you towards each other abounds; so that we ourselves glory in you, the ekklesia in God, for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure: which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom [power and authority] of God, for which you also have been affected:
"Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; and to you who are troubled, rest with us when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ [see the Feature article, What Exactly Is The Gospel?]: who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; when he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
"Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ." [2 Ths. 1:3-12].
The Genesis birthright is no myth. It is real. And to find the real “bad guy” here, we only have to look in the mirror. We either love and live the truth or we love and live the lie. Edom has no hold over us except what we give to him through our ignorance and apathy towards the truth given to us by Christ. Because of our loss of resolve in loving the truth, God is granting Edom his authority over us. When we put our efforts into supporting this candidate or that for office, or fighting the invasion of privacy and the curtailing of our inalienable constitutional rights, no matter how valid, we are addressing the effects rather than the causes of our predicament. It's doomed to failure because these events are brought about by God [Jer. 30:15; also see Dan. 9:3-11]. At the risk of being redundant and a bit upsetting, we've been dimwitted dupes. And we're paying the dimwitted dupes price.
Rather than choosing the truth, we’ve chosen the bread with empty calories, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny et al, “… we shall deceive them [Christians] and tell them that we are Your servants and rule them in Your name.” Every Christmas and every Easter celebration puts Big Brother, and the false prophet, one step closer to gaining dominion over us, being “granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them.” [See the Feature articles, Easter, Babylon And The Antichrist and Our Corrupted Compass].As it may be too late for our society to make wholesale changes, at least according to what the prophecies say, individually we can choose to single-mindedly put Christ and the truth of his words first in our lives. By the way, now wouldn’t be too soon to start seeking. We still have that choice, but it needs to be joined with a sincere love of the truth. Or we can close our eyes, shut our mouth, and clasp our hands over our ears hoping the bogeyman will go away. He won't.
We would do well, then, to take the advice of Christ given in the gospels of Luke and Matthew. "But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength of the conviction of the truth, which is faith, to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man." [Luke 21:36]. It would be wise to give this counsel serious consideration.
And "... when you pray, go into a private room, close your door and pray to your Father in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you." [Mat.6:6]. When we do so, the apostle Paul tells us, "Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God [by holding fast to his word the truth], to those who are the called according to His purpose." [Rom. 8:26-28].
Our time frame for getting back on track with the words of Christ appears to be rapidly vanishing when we gauge the accelerating pace of events occurring over the past decade and a half. The fig trees are sprouting leaves. [See Mat. 24:32-35]. We just don’t know when Big Brother’s day of vengeance and his year of redeeming, the climactic tribulation, will manifest itself, except that it will come as a thief in the night. [See the Postscript in the Feature article, The War Dispatches]. In the meantime, we know that the quest for the birthright’s earthly control will continue, “… for what has been determined shall be done.” In answer, then, to our question at the top, “Is that you, Big Brother?" The answer is yes.

"For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour ... But they rebelled, and vexed his Holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them
