The Way The Truth And The Life

In the book of Genesis the first book in the bible, God exposes the evil that lurks in the hearts of mankind and clearly lays out His own unique plan for dealing with sin that separates man from his Creator. 

Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, “I have gotten a man with the help of the Lord.” And again, she bore his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, and Cain a tiller of the ground. In the course of time Cain brought to the Lord an offering of the fruit of the ground, and Abel brought of the firstlings of his flock and of their fat portions. And the Lord had regard for Abel and his offering, but for Cain and his offering he had no regard. So Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell. The Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry, and why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is couching at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it.”

Cain said to Abel his brother, “Let us go out to the field.” And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel, and killed him. (Genesis 4: 1-8)


One might think that the Lord had shown unfair favoritism, however keep in mind what the Lord had previously said: And to Adam he said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you. (Genesis 3:17)


The reason Cain’s offering was unacceptable to God is because he had offered what he had produced from the ground that the Lord had cursed, therefore it was an affront to God. However Able’s offering was acceptable because it honored what God had done as a sign that spoke of the necessary future shedding of blood when He would offer His own son as the only suitable sacrifice and covering for the sins of all mankind. The following verse clearly indicates that the Lord himself set the precedent as he slew an animal drawing innocent blood as a covenant between God and man. “And the Lord God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins, and clothed them.” (Genesis 3:21)


Down through the ages those who have refused to accept this covenant between God and man, thinking of it as repugnant, have made themselves their own god thus passing judgment on the Creator who alone is the maker of rules concerning the universe and the lives of men. They in turn have accepted the hand of the Deceiver and believed the whisperings of the Liar, while thinking in their arrogant hearts that they can control the future of the world and it’s population by murdering millions of children still in their mother’s womb. While Demon influenced men are interfering in the political affairs of nations, others seek to inoculate millions and even alter the rays of the sun, seeking to gain control over the world population. These are they for whom the fires of Hell are reserved!


There is clearly a vast chasm between believers and unbelievers. Men pray for peace and hope for a kinder, friendly and civil world, however Jesus knowing the hearts of men said this: “Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division; for henceforth in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three; they will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against her mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.” (Luke 12: 51-53)


“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. (John 3:16-17) To all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, (John 1:12)


For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. (Titus 2:11-14) 

You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. Do not grumble, brethren, against one another, that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing at the doors. (James 5: 8-9)


“And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, look up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” 

(Luke 21: 25-28)

 

Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, every one who pierced him; and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen. “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty 

(Revelation 1: 7-8)

There Is Nothing New Under The Sun

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want; he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. (Psalm 23: 2-3) Historically God’s people have always been likened to sheep with the Lord himself as their shepherd, it is a comforting and picturesque analogy of God and his devoted and trusting followers. His people consider the Bible to be the word of God in which he gives us understanding and directions for life, here he gives us the following four groups so that we can understand the human dynamics that are even at work today in our own times.

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; and there is nothing new under the sun. Is there a thing of which it is said, “See, this is new”? It has been already, in the ages before us. (Ecclesiastes 1:9-10)


Two thousand years ago, the known world was ruled by Rome. From England to Africa and from Syria to Spain, one in every four people on earth lived and died under Roman law. The Roman Empire in the first century mixed sophistication with brutality, terror, tyranny and greed.The Roman Empire controlled much of the known world and was a precursor of the current day New World Global Order. See, there is nothing new under the sun!


Four main Jewish groups existed at the time of Christ; the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the Essenes and the Zealots. 


The Pharisees were an influential religious sect within Judaism known for their acceptance of oral tradition in addition to the written Law, and their teaching that all Jews should observe all 600-plus laws in the Torah, including the rituals concerning ceremonial purification. They were mostly middle-class businessmen and leaders of the synagogues. They were often given to an excessive sense of self righteousness and known to follow the onerous specifics of the law religiously while having little sense of the spiritual meaning behind it, and they pridefully boasted of their own righteousness as opposed to that of others. Pharisees believed in angels, demons, heaven and hell and for the most part they represent the hypocritical attitudes present in most mainstream societies today.


The Sadducees were the party of high priests, aristocratic families, and merchants, the wealthier elements of the population. They tended to have good relations with the Roman rulers of Palestine. They generally represented a conservative view within Judaism and did not believe in heaven or hell and were largely secular in their practice of religion much like the Secular Humanists of this time. The Sadducees found particularly objectionable the Christian proclamation that Jesus is the Christ and the resurrection personified.

 

The Essenes were a small, separatist group that grew out of the conflicts of the Maccabean age. Like the Pharisees, they stressed strict legal observance, but considered the temple priesthood corrupt and rejected much of the temple ritual and sacrificial system.

They were typical of today’s mainstream societal dropouts that are comprised of cults, cloistered religious groups, communes, and those harboring moral objections to the ethics and mores of government.


The Zealots were members of a first-century political movement among Jews who sought to overthrow the occupying Roman government.


The attitudinal characteristics of these group’s are typical of many of the the social, religious and political segments within the societal construct of various nations throughout the world regardless of ethnicity, religion or political persuasion. The essence of these four distinct groups can be observed in the two opposed preeminent political groups In the United States of which the defining differences between them is found in this verse from the bible; “A wise man’s heart inclines him toward the right, but a fool’s heart toward the left.” (Ecclesiastes 10:2) 


The group on the Right is conservative, freedom loving and law abiding living according to a Constitution that follows the Judaeo-Christian precepts written into it by the nation’s founding fathers. They universally believe that God is the source of all that is good and righteous, they are lovers of truth.


The group on the Left is liberal and typically follows Secular Humanist beliefs. They assume that all goodness emanates through a government that operates according to their own assumed moral codes and that the Constitution is an obsolete document written by racists. Believing that God is a superstitious myth, they resort to lies and all manner of deceit to convince themselves and others that they alone control nature and the destiny of the world.


Secular Humanism is a philosophy that embraces human reason, secular ethics, and philosophical naturalism as the basis of morality and decision making while specifically rejecting religious dogma as merely superstition. Secular humanism assumes that human beings are capable of being ethical and moral without a belief in God. 


The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none that does good. The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any that act wisely, that seek after God. They have all gone astray, they are all alike corrupt; there is none that does good, no, not one. Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers who eat up my people as they eat bread, and do not call upon the Lord? There they shall be in great terror, for God is with the generation of the righteous. (Psalm 14: 1-5) 

He who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. He who does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne to his Son. And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who has not the Son of God has not life. (1John 5: 10-12) When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left. Then the King will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; Then he will say to those at his left hand, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. (Matthew 25: 31-34, 41)

Hypocrites Hating Deaths And Loving Mass Murder

2020 was a very stressful year throughout the nations of the world especially for those who believe and trust in God and in the sanctity of the life He gives us. The world has been obsessed with death, there are death statistics every day caused by a viral pandemic. Billions of dollars have been spent to save lives afflicted by it, as economies the world over have been crushed in a desperate attempt to curb the viral spread and ensuing deaths. People are berated for not wearing a mask lest they infect someone who might then die. The world is wailing in travail over the mass deaths, while at the same time in total diametric moral abandonment there is celebration over the mass killing of unborn lives. Young Argentinian women and many young American women believe they cannot have fulfilled lives unless they can abort innocent unborn children. In a year of terrible images, there are many videos of young women dancing ecstatically in the streets of Argentina because the government there just legalized abortion. President Alberto Fernandez proudly announced that Argentina is now "a better society" because abortions are now free.

These hypocrites routinely ask for God’s blessings on them and their nations expecting His blessings to continue unabated, but know this; “For that person must not suppose that a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways, will receive anything from the Lord. (James 1: 8) 

“Or do you presume upon the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience? Do you not know that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? But by your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed. For he will render to every man according to his works.” (Romans 2: 4-6)


A vast number within the populations of these and other nations have turned away from the Creator and have crowned themselves as center of their own universe having adopted Secular Humanism as their credo and the self-righteousness that they construct in their own imaginations as sufficient justification for their lives and yet; “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none that does good.” (Psalm 14: 1)

  

All of mankind has an innate God consciousness in spite of what some may say and God will have the final word for impenitent unbelievers. 

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse; for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools." (Romans 1:18-22)


“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of stress. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, inhuman, implacable, slanderers, profligates, fierce, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.” 

(2 Timothy 3: 1 - 4)

And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them. (Romans 1: 28-32)


As of this writing the nations of the world are in extreme turmoil as the godless elements within society are wresting control from the law abiding, God conscious believers who govern and rule in a compassionate and even handed manner, to be handed over to the contemptible and disreputable destroyers of all that is good and righteous.


Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our assembling to meet him, we beg you, brethren, not to be quickly shaken in mind or excited, either by spirit or by word, or by letter purporting to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you this? And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, and the Lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by his appearing and his coming. The coming of the lawless one by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with pretended signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are to perish, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2: 1-12)


We are currently witnessing the rebellion spoken of in the preceding scripture verses, the time is short and now is the time to make a decision and consider your sinful ways, repent and ask Jesus into your heart as Lord and Savior. 

For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. 

(1 Thessalonians 5:9-10) 

"For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29: 11-13)

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. (John 3:16-17)

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. (John 1:12)

A Blessed Christmas To All

And they went with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they saw it they made known the saying which had been told them concerning this child; and all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. But Mary kept all these things, pondering them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them. (Luke 2: 16-20)

 https://biggeekdad.com/2015/11/angels-from-the-realms-of-glory/

"Here is a man who was born in an obscure village as the child of a peasant woman. He grew up in another obscure village. He worked in a carpenter shop until he was thirty and then for three years was an itinerant preacher. He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never owned a home. He never had a family. He never went to college. He never put his foot inside a big city. He never traveled two hundred miles from the place where he was born. He never did one of the things that usually accompany greatness. He had no credentials but himself. He had nothing to do with this world except the naked power of his divine manhood. While still a young man the tide of popular opinion turned against him. His friends ran away. One of them denied him. Another betrayed him. He was turned over to his enemies. He went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed upon the cross between two thieves. His executioners gambled for the only piece of property he had on earth while he was dying, and that was his coat. When he was dead, he was taken down and laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend. Nineteen wide centuries have come and gone and today he is the center of the human race and the leader of the column of progress. I am far within the mark when I say that all the armies that ever marched, and all the navies that were ever built, and all the parliaments that ever sat and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man upon the earth as powerfully as has this one solitary life.”             

Excerpts of a sermon in 1926 by Reverend James Allan Francis

Blessed Is The Lord, Creator Of Heaven And Earth

 Once again this is the time of year when the Christian world celebrates the birth of Christ. 


In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, “Hail, O favored one, the Lord is with you!” But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus." (Luke 1:26-31)


The sixth month in the Hebrew calendar is “Elul” (Aug - September). Most pregnancies last nine months which would place the birth of Jesus in “Lyar” (April - May). 


The early church in Rome incorporated the Pagan Winter Solstice and chose December as the appropriate time to celebrate the birth of Christ commonly referred to as Christmas. Alas most of the nominal “Christian” world  has taken to heart the fabricated story of Saint Nicolas, replete with gift giving and all the lust for crass materialism that it entails. This attitude relegates the birth of Christ as merely peripheral rather than the greatest and most significant event to ever take place in the history of the universe.

 

The prophet Isaiah had foreseen the coming of the Messiah countless generations before the birth of Jesus.


Who has believed what we have heard? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For he grew up before him like a young plant,

and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or comeliness that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him. (Isaiah 53: 1-2)


Jesus grew up in front of God His Father, and appeared as just another little boy with no remarkable physical attributes. However later as an adult he would offer up his own life as a sacrifice for the sins of the world. 


He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. Yet it was the will of the Lord to bruise him; he has put him to grief; when he makes himself an offering for sin, he shall see his offspring, he shall prolong his days; the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand;
(Isaiah 53: 3-6,10)


It was the will of who? It was the will of God the Father in heaven to put Jesus His son through suffering and death, when he made himself, God incarnate, an offering for the sins of the world to satisfy the covenant between Himself and all of mankind.


Earlier Jesus had said, “I and the Father are one.” (John 10: 30). This  and other statements clarify the divinity of Jesus the Christ as the incarnation of God Himself in human form.


Following his death and resurrection as He appeared to the apostles and said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also; henceforth you know him and have seen him.”

( John 14: 6-7)


It is interesting to note that no other world religion has anyone who left His place in heaven and was born into this world as a man and who selflessly died, was buried and rose again from the dead to offer salvation and a right relationship between man and his creator. 

As one looks around and surveys the world in turmoil and tumult in all the nations, it may become evident that the end of the age and the return of Christ is close at hand. It’s time to either acknowledge Christ and ask Him to become personal Lord and Savior, to turn away and refuse is to suffer the eternal consequences.

 

God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1Thessalonians 5: 9)

Wheat vs The Weeds

The following verse describes completely and succinctly the only means by which God has provided for mankind to be forgiven of all transgressions and be admitted into His presence in the next most fabulous and everlasting life.

 

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” 

(John 3: 16)


Surely God has shown His love for us in spite of some of the most egregious things we do. He made it clear when He set the standard; “The soul that sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.” (Ezekiel 18: 20)

And again: “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6: 23)


How incredibly unselfish, to think that that Creator of the universe would offer up His own beloved Son as payment for our sins and basic human shortcomings. I wouldn’t let my son die for anyone, especially some of the disgusting filth we read about in the news almost daily. But aside from God’s plan, there is no other way, only eternal damnation and death. If it seems strange and unfair, but remember that you are not God, you have not created yourself and therefore you do not make the rules. Keep this in mind; “The fool says in his heart, ‘there is no God.’ They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none that does good. (Psalm 14-1)


Jesus taught using parables which would illustrate God’s mindset in human terms.


He told them many things in parables, saying: “A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they had not much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, but when the sun rose they were scorched; and since they had no root they withered away. Other seeds fell upon thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. He who has ears, let him hear.” (Matthew 13:3-9)


Jesus went on to explain the parable of the sower:

“Hear then the parable of the sower. When any one hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what is sown in his heart; this is what was sown along the path. As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately he falls away. As for what was sown among thorns, this is he who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the delight in riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. As for what was sown on good soil, this is he who hears the word and understands it; he indeed bears fruit, and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.” (Matthew 13: 18-23)


“The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. And the servants of the householder came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then has it weeds?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’ But he said, ‘No; lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.’”(Matthew 13: 24-30)


The wheat refers to the lives that mature spiritually by following the will of God by believing that the sacrifice of Christ is sufficient covering for their own sins, and in believing that they have asked Him into their lives as Lord and Savior and in the process they, like wheat that have brought forth grains of goodness. The enemy is the devil who continually sows evil thoughts into the minds and hearts of humanity. Those likened to weeds are of two types that have continued to suck up the goodness of life that God provides to all. One type is religious but only gives mental assent to the historical existence of Christ while ignoring their own need for him refusing him altogether, they can be referred to as believers in name only. Then there is the other type who openly hates God and his Christ and openly scoffs at and hates believers. 


Jesus explained the parable of the weeds:

Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.” He answered, “He who sows the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world, and the good seed means the sons of the kingdom; the weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the close of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age. The Son of man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear. (Matthew 13: 36-43)


We will refer to those who have set biblical scripture as foundational to their beliefs as (believers), they may be members of any church, denomination or synagogue. Christians are those believers who have acknowledged Jesus as the Son of God and have asked him to be their personal Lord and Savior and have made Him central to their lives. They will be judged solely on the basis of their trust and faith in Christ and His righteousness. 


Non believers are comprised mostly of secular humanists, those that have taken on the mantle of morality based on their own self-righteousness with no belief in or regard for God or His Christ. This will include Atheists, Pagans and all followers of false religions, they will be judged on how well they followed the law all of which is essentially based on the ten commandments.

 

“For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become guilty of all of it.” 

(James 2: 10) 


Anyone can plainly see that It’s becoming more evident that we are approaching the close of the age, now is the time for you to accept Christ and salvation or reject Him and suffer eternal damnation your choice! What will it be?


If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)

From Archbishop Vigano to the President of the United States

The great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world, he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Rejoice then, O heaven and you that dwell therein! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!”  (Revelation 12: 9 & 12)

Roman Catholic Archbishop Carlo Viganò to President of the United States Donald J. Trump, a letter of concern for Christians and the entire world.

Mister President,

Allow me to address you at this hour in which the fate of the whole world is being threatened by a global conspiracy against God and humanity. I write to you as an Archbishop, as a Successor of the Apostles, as the former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America. I am writing to you in the midst of the silence of both civil and religious authorities. May you accept these words of mine as the “voice of one crying out in the desert” (Jn 1:23).

As I said when I wrote my letter to you in June, this historical moment sees the forces of Evil aligned in a battle without quarter against the forces of Good; forces of Evil that appear powerful and organized as they oppose the children of Light, who are disoriented and disorganized, abandoned by their temporal and spiritual leaders.

Daily we sense the attacks multiplying of those who want to destroy the very basis of society: the natural family, respect for human life, love of country, freedom of education and business. We see heads of nations and religious leaders pandering to this suicide of Western culture and its Christian soul, while the fundamental rights of citizens and believers are denied in the name of a health emergency that is revealing itself more and more fully as instrumental to the establishment of an inhuman faceless tyranny.

A global plan called the Great Reset is underway. Its architect is a global élite that wants to subdue all of humanity, imposing coercive measures with which to drastically limit individual freedoms and those of entire populations. In several nations this plan has already been approved and financed; in others it is still in an early stage. Behind the world leaders who are the accomplices and executors of this infernal project, there are unscrupulous characters who finance the World Economic Forum and Event 201, promoting their agenda.


The purpose of the Great Reset is the imposition of a health dictatorship aiming at the imposition of liberticidal measures, hidden behind tempting promises of ensuring a universal income and cancelling individual debt. The price of these concessions from the International Monetary Fund will be the renunciation of private property and adherence to a program of vaccination against Covid-19 and Covid-21 promoted by Bill Gates with the collaboration of the main pharmaceutical groups. Beyond the enormous economic interests that motivate the promoters of the Great Reset, the imposition of the vaccination will be accompanied by the requirement of a health passport and a digital ID, with the consequent contact tracing of the population of the entire world. Those who do not accept these measures will be confined in detention camps or placed under house arrest, and all their assets will be confiscated. 

Mr. President, I imagine that you are already aware that in some countries the Great Reset will be activated between the end of this year and the first trimester of 2021. For this purpose, further lockdowns are planned, which will be officially justified by a supposed second and third wave of the pandemic. You are well aware of the means that have been deployed to sow panic and legitimize draconian limitations on individual liberties, artfully provoking a world-wide economic crisis. In the intentions of its architects, this crisis will serve to make the recourse of nations to the Great Reset irreversible, thereby giving the final blow to a world whose existence and very memory they want to completely cancel. But this world, Mr. President, includes people, affections, institutions, faith, culture, traditions, and ideals: people and values that do not act like automatons, who do not obey like machines, because they are endowed with a soul and a heart, because they are tied together by a spiritual bond that draws its strength from above, from that God that our adversaries want to challenge, just as Lucifer did at the beginning of time with his “non serviam.”

Many people – as we well know – are annoyed by this reference to the clash between Good and Evil and the use of “apocalyptic” overtones, which according to them exasperates spirits and sharpens divisions. It is not surprising that the enemy is angered at being discovered just when he believes he has reached the citadel he seeks to conquer undisturbed. What is surprising, however, is that there is no one to sound the alarm. The reaction of the deep state to those who denounce its plan is broken and incoherent, but understandable. Just when the complicity of the mainstream media had succeeded in making the transition to the New World Order almost painless and unnoticed, all sorts of deceptions, scandals and crimes are coming to light.

Until a few months ago, it was easy to smear as “conspiracy theorists” those who denounced these terrible plans, which we now see being carried out down to the smallest detail. No one, up until last February, would ever have thought that, in all of our cities, citizens would be arrested simply for wanting to walk down the street, to breathe, to want to keep their business open, to want to go to church on Sunday. Yet now it is happening all over the world, even in picture-postcard Italy that many Americans consider to be a small enchanted country, with its ancient monuments, its churches, its charming cities, its characteristic villages. And while the politicians are barricaded inside their palaces promulgating decrees like Persian satraps, businesses are failing, shops are closing, and people are prevented from living, traveling, working, and praying. The disastrous psychological consequences of this operation are already being seen, beginning with the suicides of desperate entrepreneurs and of our children, segregated from friends and classmates, told to follow their classes while sitting at home alone in front of a computer.

In Sacred Scripture, Saint Paul speaks to us of “the one who opposes” the manifestation of the mystery of iniquity, the kathèkon (2 Thess 2:6-7). In the religious sphere, this obstacle to evil is the Church, and in particular the papacy; in the political sphere, it is those who impede the establishment of the New World Order.

As is now clear, the one who occupies the Chair of Peter has betrayed his role from the very beginning in order to defend and promote the globalist ideology, supporting the agenda of the deep church, who chose him from its ranks.

Mr. President, you have clearly stated that you want to defend the nation – One Nation under God, fundamental liberties, and non-negotiable values that are denied and fought against today. It is you, dear President, who are “the one who opposes” the deep state, the final assault of the children of darkness.

For this reason, it is necessary that all people of good will be persuaded of the epochal importance of the imminent election: not so much for the sake of this or that political program, but because of the general inspiration of your action that best embodies – in this particular historical context – that world, our world, which they want to cancel by means of the lockdown. Your adversary is also our adversary: it is the Enemy of the human race, He who is “a murderer from the beginning” (Jn 8:44).

Around you are gathered with faith and courage those who consider you the final garrison against the world dictatorship. The alternative is to vote for a person who is manipulated by the deep state, gravely compromised by scandals and corruption, who will do to the United States what Jorge Mario Bergoglio is doing to the Church, Prime Minister Conte to Italy, President Macron to France, Prime Minster Sanchez to Spain, and so on. The blackmailable nature of Joe Biden – just like that of the prelates of the Vatican’s “magic circle” – will expose him to be used unscrupulously, allowing illegitimate powers to interfere in both domestic politics as well as international balances. It is obvious that those who manipulate him already have someone worse than him ready, with whom they will replace him as soon as the opportunity arises.

And yet, in the midst of this bleak picture, this apparently unstoppable advance of the “Invisible Enemy,” an element of hope emerges. The adversary does not know how to love, and it does not understand that it is not enough to assure a universal income or to cancel mortgages in order to subjugate the masses and convince them to be branded like cattle. This people, which for too long has endured the abuses of a hateful and tyrannical power, is rediscovering that it has a soul; it is understanding that it is not willing to exchange its freedom for the homogenization and cancellation of its identity; it is beginning to understand the value of familial and social ties, of the bonds of faith and culture that unite honest people. This Great Reset is destined to fail because those who planned it do not understand that there are still people ready to take to the streets to defend their rights, to protect their loved ones, to give a future to their children and grandchildren. The leveling inhumanity of the globalist project will shatter miserably in the face of the firm and courageous opposition of the children of Light. The enemy has Satan on its side, He who only knows how to hate. But on our side, we have the Lord Almighty, the God of armies arrayed for battle, and the Most Holy Virgin, who will crush the head of the ancient Serpent. “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Rom 8:31).

Mr. President, you are well aware that, in this crucial hour, the United States of America is considered the defending wall against which the war declared by the advocates of globalism has been unleashed. Place your trust in the Lord, strengthened by the words of the Apostle Paul: “I can do all things in Him who strengthens me” (Phil 4:13). To be an instrument of Divine Providence is a great responsibility, for which you will certainly receive all the graces of state that you need, since they are being fervently implored for you by the many people who support you with their prayers.

With this heavenly hope and the assurance of my prayer for you, for the First Lady, and for your collaborators, with all my heart I send you my blessing.

God bless the United States of America!
