CRITICAL RACE THEORY AND BLACK LIVES MATTER

Critical race theory (CRT) is a school of thought meant to emphasize the effects of race on one’s social standing. It arose as a challenge to the idea that in the two decades since the Civil Rights Movement and associated legislation, racial inequality had been solved and affirmative action was no longer necessary. CRT continues to be an influential body of legal and academic literature that has made its way into more public, non-academic writing. CRT was interdisciplinary, drawing on a wide range of scholarly ideologies, including feminism, Marxism, and postmodernism.

Result: Critical Race Theory is a classic communist divide and conquer tactic. Rather than to serve, help, heal the nation, critical race theory has proven to be poisonous to liberty, true community, and our common humanity.  Critical race theory’s agitators are committed to tearing down civil society on the pretense that it is an incubator for “systemic racism.”

If you’ve any doubt about that, consider the Smithsonian display on “whiteness” that condemned all elements of civil society, including politeness, hard work, self-reliance, logic, planning, and family cohesion. None of those are “white” values, but critical race theory frames them just so. This sort of animus proves that critical race theory “arguments” are non-starters and merely serve as convenient pretexts for power grabs.

Doused with critical race theory, the Black Lives Matter organization and its related Antifa-infused mobs are organized for the same purposes as all cult recruits: to recruit more people and to implement the desire to divide and conquer. The phenomenon can be seen as they surround people in vehicles or restaurants, demanding their victims raise a fist and recite slogans under the intense intimidation and implications of violence.

Indeed, agitators who deploy critical race theory have zero interest in ending racism. Instead, they’ve made essentially the same point over and over again: Racism is an unsolvable problem. If you’ve been tainted as “white,” there’s nothing you can do about it. You are eternally a racist, especially if you don’t believe you are.

Robin D’Angelo explains it all in her best-selling book “White Fragility.” Your only option is the cultist’s option: submit to your critical race theory overlords, then recruit others to do the same. If, however, you’re a black person who disagrees with all of this, well, then, “You ain’t black.”

As with all forms of identity politics and intersectionality, critical race theory stokes divisions between people where few or none existed before. It’s all about relational aggression and predatory alienation.

Today our miseducated youth are easily impressed by new terms such as “systemic racism,” “intersectionality,” and “white fragility.” Finally, the wokesters identify and condemn those marked as oppressors — doxing and canceling them by name — in a written list of names posted in the village. Today such work is helped along by media and Big Tech.

The whole idea is to sow chaos where there was peace — or, at least progress. It is to disrupt and destroy any sense of community a person may have.

Today’s critical race theory agitators call for a form of race consciousness that breeds in themselves blind hate. We have been assaulted with many other forms of “consciousness” intended to sow hostilities and lawlessness: immigrant status, gender identity, sexual identity, and on and on. We are being overwhelmed.

Saddest of all is how critical race theory exploits the tragedy of racial divisions in America. The tragedy is thus reduced to nothing but a vehicle for a power grab by elitists in the circles of academia, media, and Big Tech. Ironically, those power elites are vastly and disproportionately white and in it for their gain. So, rather than serve as a balm for healing, critical race theory has proven to be poisonous to liberty, true community, and our common humanity. It could only happen because God and His Word are no longer considered relevant or of value. And yet, God’s Word tells us the world would be like this at the end of this age prior to Jesus return to rule the nations. Jesus said, “For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man as it was in the days of Noah when God’s judgement was poured out on the lawless generation that existed at that time.Matthew 24:37-39

AMERICA’S FUTURE IN BIBLICAL PROPHECY

David Reagan lines up America’s future with Biblical prophecy. He believes that America is in full scale rebellion against God and has past the point of redemption. God’s judgement is underway and His wrath will follow. This video reveals the truth. The facts David Reagan state are irrefutable. One statement made by a Harvard professor is powerful. “You take away religion and you cannot hire enough police.”

America’s future looks very dim as the forces advocating moral depravity and contempt for God’s Word prepare to take over the White House and Congress.

THE WHO, WHY, AND WHEN OF THE WISEMEN

Wise men (Magi) from the East come to worship the new born king.

In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it. And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand... Nebuchadnezzar commanded Ashpenaz, his chief eunuch, to bring some of the people of Israel, both of the royal family and of the nobility, youths without blemish, of good appearance and skillful in all wisdom, endowed with knowledge, understanding learning, and competent to stand in the king’s palace, and to teach them the literature and language of the Chaldeans… Among these were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah of the tribe of Judah.” Daniel 1:1-6

Daniel was part of the king’s administration and was even made head over it all (Daniel 5:29, 6:1-3). Eventually, Daniel was the highest authority (next to the king) in Babylonia, holding the position of governor and ruling over all the authorities in this enormous kingdom. And this subsequent rule included reigning over all of the wise men or magi in Babylonia (Daniel 2:12, 48).

Daniel’s title was rab mag or “chief of the Magi” (Daniel 5:11), so he would have left historical records of his writings to the kings of Babylon which included Daniel chapter 9 where Daniel references the appearance of Jesus Christ and goes into very specific detail about the timing of the Anointed One’s appearance (Daniel 9:21-26), so even near the time of Christ’s birth, and even after hundreds of years had already passed, Daniel’s pronouncement of the Anointed One’s coming would allow the wise men to discern the when and where of the Messiah’s birth. So how was Daniel able to predict the time of the Messiah’s arrival (Daniel 2:12-48, 9:24-26)? Daniel was a man of prayer, and Gabriel answered his prayer and told Daniel not only when the Messiah would come, but when He would be killed (Daniel 9:25-26). And the location must have been obviously known to the wise men, recognizing that Daniel’s point of reference was not Babylon but the temple at Jerusalem (Daniel 9:16), so for the wise men, it was not a guessing game, otherwise, if they were too early, they would have missed Him, and if too late, the child Jesus would have been in Egypt (Matthew. 2:13).

Fulfilled prophecy is incontrovertible truth the Bible is God’s Word to us. It alone holds the truth about the Cosmos, its origin, history and future.

SECRETS OF DEA SEA SCROLLS

The Dead Sea Scrolls writers knew 5 secrets about the End Times that most Christians still don’t know today. In a mostly unknown scroll known as the Melchizedek Pesher (or commentary) the ancient writer explained the End Times strictly from the Old Testament. The Document examines passages from Daniel, Isaiah, Deuteronomy, and Leviticus that open up the meaning and timing of the return of Jesus. It is an explanation of Biblical prophecies which are important to the end times and therefore to us today. Watch this Nelson Walters YouTube video to learn five things that most churches are still unaware of today particularly with regard to God’s cycles, Sabbatical (Shemitah) and Jubilee, and how important these are to the end times.

There is a second video which you will need to watch after this one it. The Dead Sea Scrolls predicts the exact day of the Second Coming. Not the Rapture because no man knows the Day or the Hour, but the day of His Second Coming to this earth. What the scroll writers knew 2100 years ago, many Christians have missed today because the answers are based on the Old Testament.

2020 TRUMP WILL BE REELECTED

Prophecy reveals future events in these last days. In this video, Prophet @Jeremiah Johnson Ministries details his shocking dream about President Trump and the future of America. What should Christians be doing in this prophetic season, how should we pray, and will Trump win in the November 2020 election? This interview will provide a very clear and accurate vision of where the United States of America is heading. Pastor Alan DiDio specifically asks Brother Johnson about the 3 biggest principalities opposing the President and the Nation: racism, radical feminism, and abortion (Molech) and what the Church can do to stop them.

IS WHAT I BELIEVE TRUE?

I CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING MORE TRAGIC THAN LIVING LIFE WITH A FALSE SENSE OF REALITY.

I am certain God exists because I have the Holy Spirit resident in my spirit. The Holy Spirit came to be my counsellor, teacher and comforter when I repented of my godless lifestyle, recognised who Jesus is and what He had accomplished for me by dying on the Cross.

God has revealed in His Word why this world is as it is with pain, death and suffering. True history reveals that God is involved in this worlds events. The extent of man’s rebellion against God was revealed when God destroyed all of mankind except one family that He preserved on a massive boat. The fossil record – dead things buried all over the world including fossil fuels demonstrates the truth of God’s judgement with a world wide flood.

Next God established the nations and caused them to disseminate throughout the world when He created new languages for each people group at Babel. There is no other sensible explanation for the languages or existence of tribes and nations.

God then established Israel as His nation to show the world His rules for fallen mankind living on His planet. At the outset, Israel knew that God would bless them if they obeyed but would judge them if they disobeyed (blessings and curses). God gave them His calendar with appointed Feast Days and the design for a Temple where sacrifices were to be offered as an atonement for sin. These sacrifices were but a foreshadow of God’s son, Jesus, ultimate sacrifice to provide a way for mankind to come back into a relationship with our heavenly Father.

JESUS entered history at the appointed time to establish His church and to divide history into BC and AD.

Israel has clearly demonstrated mankind’s inability to live according to God’s Laws and of course God knew that beforehand. Moses prophesied this would be the case prior to Israel even going into the Promised Land. He said they would be scattered throughout the nations and that only prior to Jesus return to this earth would Israel be regathered and reestablished as a nation ready for Jesus to rule and reign with a rod of iron for 1000 years. Israel’s very existence is proof God exists.

Ultimately, the belief that is true will be consistent with the real world and the one which is untrue will present a view of life that is not in harmony with reality. The paradigm that this world evolved from nothing by chance is a view of life that is not in harmony with reality. Nothing comes from nothing and this complex world where DNA (a word made up of many letters) is the building block of all living things reveals that God’s Word reveals the truth.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:1-5

In this brief treatise on world history showing when God intervened to control the outcome, I have made no mention of God’s adversary Satan and his involvement to upset God’s plan for mankind. Satan deceives mankind. His ultimate aim is their destruction. However, he was created by God. He is a spiritual being in rebellion against God and is unable to do anything outside of God’s control. We need to understand that when Adam and Eve disobeyed God and followed Satan’s lead they gave their sovereignty of this earth to him. If we do not repent and except God’s forgiveness through Jesus sacrifice on our behalf then we continue to be under the authority of Satan and will do evil continually.

What is your world view does it line up with reality?

END TIMES APOSTASY UNDENIABLE

Only 6% of Americans possess a biblical worldview, according to a new survey.  The study, which was released out of the recently launched Cultural Research Centre (CRC) based at Arizona Christian University, is called the American Worldview Inventory and is the first of what will be an annual report from veteran researcher George Barna, who is the CRC research director.  The survey asked 51 worldview questions that examined both what people believe and how they conduct their lives.  Approximately 20% of those who attend evangelical Protestant churches espouse a biblical worldview, as do 17% of those who attend charismatic or Pentecostal churches, the survey found.  The numbers were much lower for those among mainline Protestant churches, 8%, and Catholics, 1%.

“Born again Christians, a segment defined in part by their acceptance of scriptural exhortations regarding sin, grace, and salvation, were three times more likely than average to have a biblical worldview (19%).  However, the fact that not quite one out of five born again adults holds a biblical worldview highlights the extensive decline of core Christian principles in America over the last several decades,” the report said. 

What are known as “notional” Christians, Americans who identify as Christian but do not profess to know Christ personally as Saviour, comprise 54 percent of the U.S. population.  Very few of them, just one-tenth of 1 percent, hold a biblical worldview.

“A quarter-century ago we had as much as 12% of the adult population holding a biblical worldview,” Barna notes in the report.  “Since that time, we have seen a steady reduction in the incidence.  The current level, just 6%, which is literally half of the level when we started measuring this, is the lowest yet.”  He added: “If you truly believe something, you integrate it into how you live, and your lifestyle reflects those beliefs.  As a result, our worldview research always balances examining both what we believe to be true with how we translate such beliefs into action.”  The societal shift toward non-Christian worldviews like postmodernism, Marxism, secular humanism, and modern mysticism is most clearly reflected in values, the report continues.

Citing previous research, Barna went on to explain that the dominant values in the United States today are acceptance, comfort, control, entertainment, entitlement, experiences, expression, freedom, and happiness.  Those contemporary values highlight the profound contrast from previous eras in which a more widely accepted biblical worldview yielded civic duty, hard work, humility, faith, family, moderation and the rule of law. 

“Unless America experiences a steady increase in people reflecting a biblical worldview in their lives, America’s future is more likely to resemble that of nations characterised by moral and behavioural chaos,” commented Tracy Munsil, executive director and an associate professor of political science at Arizona Christian University.

JOEL’S PROPHECY PROVIDES “BOOKENDS” FOR THE CHURCH AGE

CHURCH CONCEIVED AT PENTECOST

“After all of this I will pour out my Spirit on all kinds of people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your elderly will have revelatory dreams; your young men will see prophetic visions. Even on male and female servants I will pour out my Spirit in those days.Joel 2:28-29

Pentecost, The Outpouring of Holy Spirit and The Feast of Harvest ...

CHURCH COMPLETED AT THE DAY OF THE LORD

I will produce portents both in the sky and on the earth– blood, fire, and columns of smoke. The sunlight will be turned to darkness and the moon to the colour of blood, before the day of the LORD comes—that great and terrible day! Joel 2:30–31

Peter’s understanding of Joel’s prophecy construes it as “bookends” of the church age. The first part with the pouring out the Spirit on all people at Pentecost is a sign that God is doing a new redemptive work as the church age is conceived.

When the second part of the prophecy happens, it is a sign that the church age is completedThe consistent message in Scripture concerning the celestial disturbance event is their function to signal the future two-fold event of the deliverance of the saints and the impending day of the Lord’s wrath (see Luke 21:25–28; Matt 24:22–31; Mark 13:20–27; Rev 6:12—8:5; Joel 2:31). Luke and Matthew are shown below but makes sure you check out Revelation 6:12 to 8:5.

And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Luke 21:25-28

Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Matthew 24:29-31

END TIMES PROPHECY

I don’t often recommend books but this one is a must read for those interested in knowing what the Bible says about the end times. It will be a particularly valuable read for those that have been disappointed by end times authors that have proven to be misleading, if not totally wrong. Travis Snow covers a lot of ground in his book which will give you a solid eschatological foundation and encourage you to personally delve further yourself into the Scriptures, which is always profitable.

  • Why the concept of an End-Times Exodus is such a prominent theme in the Bible.
  • The truth about the Antichrist (the End-Times Pharaoh) and where he will come from.
  • Key events that will take place in Israel and the Middle East in the days ahead.
  • How the theology of the book of Revelation is linked to the End-Times Passover.
  • A straightforward chronology that explains Revelation and the timing of the Rapture.
  • How Passover is related to the famous Battle of Gog of Magog in Ezekiel 38-39.
  • The forgotten story of what Jesus is really going to do when He returns, including how He will act as a Miracle-Working New Moses on behalf of His people.
  • The prophecies that prove Jesus will go down into Egypt before He establishes His kingdom.
  • The steps the Lord’s people can take today to prepare for the end times and the Tribulation.

JESUS SECOND COMING

There is arguably more about the glorious return of Jesus in our Bibles than there is about His earthly ministry from 27-30 AD. Moreover, many people are surprised to learn that the Bible is made up of roughly 27% prophecy, the large majority of which have not yet been fulfilled.

For this reason, it is not even possible to understand large portions of Scripture until we begin to seriously engage with the topics related to eschatology. If we claim to be Bible-loving believers, we should view Biblical prophecies, even if they are about still future events, as a critical part of the message God wants to communicate to us today. Even more important the second coming of Jesus is a central part of the Gospel message. It is not complete unless it includes the triumphant end of the story with Jesus ruling and reigning this earth in Jerusalem.. The more we understand Bible prophecy the more equipped we are to effectively share the Gospel with others. Good Biblical eschatology should always deepen our faith in Jesus, fortify our resolve to obey Him, and create a greater longing in our hearts for His kingdom.
