The Latter Day Rains

“Do not put your trust in princes (rulers), nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help (salvation). His spirit departs, he returns to the earth; in that very day his plans perish.” Psalm 146:3&4.
This message is to you America...For the sake of those fighting in the battles of war, for the sake of this government, for the sake of the hundreds of thousands trembling under our violence, I cannot be silent...
...We who are already free…or so it may seem.
How, we must ask, can anyone take from us what is only God's to give? Only we can surrender it into the hands of those who profess to be watchmen over it. Why then do we insist on allowing our leaders to lead us into a path of destruction? They profess to protect what is already ours, inalienable rights that were given to us by God and not man...yet their actions expose their true intent. They abuse these rights for the gain of their own profit through corruption and violence.
Our very Constitution, which guarantees these rights, is chaffing under the weight of our apathy...a constitution that states the equality of "all men," not merely American citizens...a declaration of truth that may not agree with the final reality...a declaration of independant life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that is not found in the wake of anywhere our nations administration sets its foot.
What kind of leadership would try to convince us into thinking we cannot remain free, and that we must constantly be punishing other nations for infringing on our national interests and thus, our freedom...even when this is done in their own sovereign though we have a claim to everything in the world...or that any other nation lacks the freedom to rise up as we did and possess that freedom for themselves? Why do we feel that as a nation, we must do it for them, rather than by example encouraging them to do it for themselves, especially when the God we profess had set us free before we ever claimed it? Or why do we believe that in order to keep this freedom, we must always be slaves to defending it with our blood in lands so far removed as to pose no threat to our borders?
Perhaps other nations whom we attemt to impose our way of life upon sees things different than we are willing to see ourselves. prehaps it is not freedom they see, but agression, thievery, meddling,oppression and corrupt greed for what has been given to them by God. Perhaps then, what our administration is preaching to other nations is a false freedom, not really freedom at all, but simply a scam to get these nations to allow us close enough to get what greed desires. Freedom that is often bought through bribes, that benefits only a few, and leaves a wide path of destruction in its wake.
Perhaps even what we enjoy is a freedom that offers just enough happiness to prevent us from seeing it for what it is…enough contentment to develop a pride that will rush to its defense...enough national pride to become self-righteous, apathetic, and afraid that somehow we may lose it. As long as the economy is strong, we are bribed into thinking that all is well, and that we should say little about the things we may hear about what our nations administraters are concocting in other nations...despite the murderous effect these things may be having on civilian populations.
What freedom offers the rights which have an ulterior motive towards gaining for itself, what liberty is nothing more than a sheild and a cloak for covetousness..whether it be power, might, wealth, or national interest... that does not consider the ways of other, sovereign nations and is propagated by lies, deceit, corruption and violence.
This is not a true freedom, but is a false doctrine of freedom and is meant to lull those who accept it into a false sense of security for the furtherance of a hidden agenda.
The truth that sets you free needs no defense. It is it's own defender. It merely needs to be embraced and followed.
"Because we fear the responsibility for our actions, we have allowed ourselves to develop the mentality of slaves. Contrary to the stirring sentiments of the Declaration of Independence, we now pledge "our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor" not to one another for our mutual protection, but to the state, whose actions continue to exploit, despoil, and destroy us": Butler D. Shaffer
What is this hidden agenda that guides the thoughts of the self designated privileged few except that there are worldly things they want to protect and gain for themselves?...These few who ask the rest of the world to sacrifice everything, including the lives of our sons, our daughters, our husbands, wives, fathers and mothers so they can have it all as the price for their selfish guidance… extortion on a global scale?
"Where is it written in the Constitution, in what article or section is it contained, that you may take children from their parents and parents from their children, and compel them to fight the battles of any war in which the folly and wickedness of the government may engage itself? Under what concealment has this power lain hidden, which now for the first time comes forth, with a tremendous and baleful aspect, to trample down and destroy the dearest right of personal liberty? Who will show me any Constitutional injunction which makes it the duty of the American people to surrender everything valuable in life, and even life, itself, whenever the purposes of an ambitious and mischievous government may require it? ... A free government with an uncontrolled power of military conscription is the most ridiculous and abominable contradiction and nonsense that ever entered into the heads of men." -- Daniel Webster (1782-1852), US Senator Source: Speech in the House of Representatives, January 14, 1814

Rather than yielding to the powers that be...the inheritance set aside for us from before the foundation of the world, those that existed before we were ever created in order to be that example and the earthly keepers that Christ laid before us...this nation has fallen to the deceit of "The Lord of the flies" in thinking that it is or can be or is the Savior of the world.
Too often it has been stated and restated by government dignitaries, that democracy is the last, best, hope for mankind...and our now sitting president, George W. Bush, feels that he has a mandate from God Himself, to spread democracy throughout the world and lead the way in the continuing fight for "freedom"...and with it all the spoils and power that go with it.
We have become a nation that relies on our own strength, our own power, our own thoughts, ways, and ideas at the urging of our leaders who also claim these are never enough, always pushing for more...the emptiness of a nation who can never be filled enough with self.
We as a nation are led to believe that democracy is the last, best hope for the world having the answers for all of the rest of humanity. Our administration believes and tries to sell its ways to the rest of the world whether through bribery, extortion, or force, when in truth it has not enough answers for its own people. Violence and corruption are in its wake… Misery and suffering are its byproducts. Our nations prisons ar filled with over 2 million inmates. Our nation leads the world in violent crime. Our nation leads the way for drug addicts, child molestors, and many other violent behaviors. We are a nation obsessed with violence and guns, but baulk prudishly at the sight of a woman's breast. We will not allow someone the right to chose to die with some dignity through euthenasia...but murder unborn children by the millions. we spend billions on space exploration and military might while leaving the worst off to suffer with little or no support. And we, its citizens, sit idly by and do nothing,using our own liberty as a cloak for covetousness. We support it at its own urgings, even when we know that those urgings are lies...we defend it with our blood...we provide for it with our taxes...we elect it with our votes...and we continue to belive its falsehoods and manipulation.
We as a nation have been led to believe that our leader has a mandate from God...because that is what he believes...
"God gave the savior to the German people. We have faith, deep and unshakeable faith that he was sent to us by God to save Germany." Hermann Goering, speaking of Hitler
"Why is this man in the White House? The majority of Americans did not vote for him. Why is he there? And I tell you this morning that he's in the White House because God put him there for a time such as this": Lt Gen William Boykin, speaking of G. W. Bush, New York Times, 17 October 2003
Yet what God would allow His mandate to be pursued on the bases of lies and deceit which casts doubt and fear causing a nation people to become ashamed apart from its leadership? The God of all truth will bring that nation to destruction.
The powerful have invoked God at their side in this war, so that we will accept their power and our weakness as something that has been established by divine plan. But there is no god behind this war other than the god of money, nor any right other than the desire for death and destruction. Today there is a "NO" which shall weaken the powerful and strengthen the weak: the "NO" to war: Subcomandante Marcos - Source: No to war, 2/16/03
“The coming of the lawless one is according to the workings of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved."II Thesssalonians 2:9

There is a fundamental principle at work here that has its very roots in the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, that though the first man was forbidden to eat its fruit, man kind continues to gobble it up with an insatiable appetite.
God, in all his wisdom, who knows the end from the beginning, allows this, not only in hope that we will not eat that fruit, but in hope that should we eat it, the deciever will become exposed through the desires of our heart and we will recognize who it is that deceives. But also, who it is that allowed themselves to be decieved and how this happened. Provision has been made for the savation of all mankind.
When will we finally recognize the face and character of this deceiver? When will we turn from it and embrace the truth that sets us free from the lies?
"An evil exists that threatens every man, woman, and child of this great nation. We must take steps to ensure our domestic security and protect our homeland": Adolph Hitler : In 1933, Hitler used the burning of the Reichstag as a pretext to push through emergency decrees suspending the basic civil liberties of German citizens. The "emergency" decrees remained in effect until the fall of the Third Reich in 1945.
"Not as tyrants have we come, but as liberators": Adolf Hitler, 1938
If you have not recognized the overtures in the preceeding quotes and essay, then read no further...for it is your own desire that you should remain deaf and blind. But make no mistake that these words were used as often in history, down through the centuries, as there were nations whose desire it has been to rule over God's kingdom and usurp His throne.
But if these strike a cord in your heart, and you wish to come up out of the darkness of perplexity, then read further, feeling free to comment on anything, and e-mail me personally.
It is not for me to name he who shall descend into hell, but that in his time, he shall be revealed...and it is my view, given by God, as it is written, that his revelation will be in the very exaltation of himself above all that is of God, as though he was God, judging and condemning those who oppose him in an effort to silence their voice.
