Note to reader: After reading this week’s World Affairs Brief, why would anyone ever want to work for an employer?
I wanted to share with my readers the latest copy of the World Affairs Brief. I found Mr. Skousen’s observations and analysis regarding the socialist objectives quite sobering, especially since they largely conform with the consensus of this blog. While Socialism’s true economic objectives in his analysis are not mentioned, I find his perspective of merit.
The WAB begins with the following remarks;
THE RADICAL AGENDAS HEADING OUR WAY
America is being dragged down by over 100 years of creeping socialism. Socialists didn’t really try to get Americans to buy into the full socialist agenda where the government owns all the means of productions, like steel and oil industries, public transportation, collective farms, etc. that have been such abject failures in every country they have been tried, including the Soviet Union; Instead we have been beset with Fabian socialism, where they allow private property but the state regulates it to restrict what you can do with “your” property and they tax property and income to finance all the socialist programs for benefits to the “poor” or “healthcare for all.” But even this process has been slow despite the millions who love the redistribution of wealth promised by socialism–thanks to vigorous opposition by conservatives who value the free market more than government handouts. But all that is changing now that public schools and universities are busy churning out young socialists; and Democrat and RINO Republican leaders are in charge of our former Republic—now turned mostly into a raw democracy. Radical things are about to happen in taxing the rich, denying white people employment, gun control, and stacking the judiciary with radical leftists intent on overturning the few constitutional restrictions that remain to protect our rights. And worst of all there is a pernicious public-private secret partnership going on between the Pentagon and the DOJ with big tech, like Google and Amazon that will shock you, and censorship is only a part of it. This week, I will showcase several examples for you to see where this is heading.
Regarding the continued COVID-related vaccine mandates; further down in the Brief, Mr. Skousen shows some examples of how the uninjected are being discriminated against, and are effectively being forced out of many areas of employment.World_Affairs_Brief_2023_feb_3

The Brief continues further down to add some interesting news coverage regarding the relationship between big tech and the USG.
Glenn Beck recently had Amy Sterner Nelson on his “Targets of Tyranny” show last year, where she exposed how Amazon got the DOJ to use civil forfeiture to go after all their bank accounts, without charging them with a single crime. Amy’s husband worked for Amazon’s cloud division at one time as a real estate agent where he and his company scouted out sites all over the country for these data centers, worth millions. He was no longer working for Amazon when the FBI came in and raided all their accounts.
They ended up selling their home in Seattle and borrowing whatever funds they could from family and friends to hire lawyers to find out why the DOJ was doing this. The FBI then even raided her legal teams’ trust account taking the money they had given their attorneys for legal work. When they found out that Amazon was behind this financial attack, the Nelson’s had their attorneys reach out to Amazon for answers. Strangely, Amazon’s attorney said they would only talk to the Nelsons if Amy’s husband first pleaded guilty to a felony!
That wasn’t going to happen, so in the Nelson’s civil case they brought against Amazon and the government, through the discovery process, they were able to finally get to the bottom of this. They even got copies of all the incriminating emails between Amazon and personal friends in the Department of Justice, showing a pattern of illegal conspiracy and collusion to get Amy’s husband for something that had nothing to do with.
You need to actually hear this account in detail in the video recording of Beck’s interview with Amy but apparently Amazon had never paid the real estate development firm they hired to do all this data center development, which Amy’s husband worked for on behalf of Amazon. According to Amy, Amazon owed the company $60M and by contract was liable for a $100M default judgment if they refused to pay. Amazon could only escape the default judgment if they could find someone in the company guilty of a felony. That target was Amy’s husband.
Here’s another passage regarding reverse discrimination;
The Issue of Reverse Discrimination.
With the extreme bias of Critical Race Theory being taught in schools and universities in America, we are starting to see reverse discrimination growing after years of modest decline. In past decades, the Supreme Court has not approved of formal racial quotas at universities and corporations in giving minorities preference in placement and hiring. But over time those prohibitions have been eroded by stealth, through unwritten policies which do exactly that—give hiring and placement preference to women and minorities in university programs, school hiring of teachers and administrators, corporate jobs and even military recruiting.
If enough radical judges get confirmed to the appellate courts or even the Supreme Court it is inevitable that laws actually demanding outright discrimination against Whites will be upheld, using the excuse of past centuries of slavery. It has already happened in South Africa where new laws have been enacted by the Black majority in government that demand that Blacks be given absolute preference over Whites in hiring if they can be considered “qualified.”
The result has been a new rise in homelessness among whites in South Africa and the growth of “shanty towns” where whites who can’t get hired in any paying job in their field become the newly impoverish. Here’s a short video of an aid worker in South Africa documenting a new shanty town and interviewing its White inhabitants. Could that happen here? It’s hard to imagine, but the radical Left would love nothing more in its warped view of “social justice.”
Overall, I find this week’s Brief an interesting read. Make your own money.

There’s an important setup in the commodity complex taking place as we speak. Take a look at the Dow Jones Commodity Index and you will see it is putting in one huge descending triangle on the weekly chart and that a break below 1000 could mean a drop to about 800.
This could be very important in the establishment of a lower level of inflation growth going forward.
The VIX is wanting to uptick. BBBY was hyped to squeeze to 20 this week, nope Huge offering AH. However if they have decent news after the offering closes like avoiding CH11 then it could still uptick even with a huge float.
Tons and of money floating around. BBBY longs were beaten up AH.
#112 is at it again. Just don’t mention Jesus. Now we know the purpose of the Jesuits; it’s not to spread the name of Jesus, it’s to remove it from the world’s consciousness.
In the final persecution of the church, Satan will appear to be more compassionate than Jesus, and most Christians will side with the devil.
Pope, Anglican, Presbyterian leaders denounce anti-gay laws
The three Christian leaders spoke out on LGBTQ rights during an unprecedented joint airborne news conference.
Disgraceful, sad signs of the times.
This rotting fungus has taken the churches as a fungus enters a blemished fruit from a crack and spreads and contaminates the whole fruit, making it possible to spoil it, and now Christianity the historical hard shell of Western society is open to spoiling too as cultural Marxism has contaminated, spread, demoralized and taken all Western Institutions, the last one, the Catholic Church. They dare to do this in public, so they are very confident about their power.
Benedict gone, there is not any restraint and Sadducees and Pharisees are the “new” ruling religious classes of Christians in the West.
Why I say this?…
Well, it is quite striking how things are so similar at Jesus times when the Temple and Israel were under attack from the Roman Empire and corruption in their own contaminated all the Israelite ruling classes helping Roman Power, not the people, not the traditional Moises teachings, not God, neither the laws, slowly dividing and spoiling the country and at the end came the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple.
As nowadays too our religious ruling classes are vowing to their new masters globalist communist project, a takeover that they want to present as the “new” “heaven on earth” and Western Christian society is going upside down in the same path to death and destruction as the ancient Israelite Kingdom went.
Jesus words about it own times rulers were very clear and we all know how all this ended.
Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.
Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.
Woe to you, blind guides! You say, ‘If anyone swears by the temple, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gold of the temple is bound by that oath.’ You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred? You also say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gift on the altar is bound by that oath.’ You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred? Therefore, anyone who swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it. And anyone who swears by the temple swears by it and by the one who dwells in it. And anyone who swears by heaven swears by God’s throne and by the one who sits on it.
Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.
Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.
Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.
Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build tombs for the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous. And you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ So you testify against yourselves that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets. Go ahead, then, and complete what your ancestors started!
You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? Therefore I am sending you prophets and sages and teachers. Some of them you will kill and crucify; others you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town. And so upon you will come all the righteous blood that has been shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berekiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. Truly I tell you, all this will come on this generation.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate. For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’
AMEN Bernard! Many churches are corrupt with the new age fungus. The best way for true Christians to accomplish fellowship is to gather in small groups at private places to study the bible and pray.
The woke crowd will eventually try and get the Bible scrubbed from the internet as hate speech. Once those prophecies start hitting – one after another – the last thing the adversary would want is the Scripture detailing his plans on the web.
There is this risk yes. For this reasons it is going to be dangerous to share any faith in public with anyone you do not trust, not with friends, not even with family. Anyone with faith should gather in private in small groups, as Andrei says, or with the help of the father and the son, let the Holy Spirit guide you alone. It will, if you got faith, it will.
My area has been very Catholic and religious for a long time. When the Muslims invaded almost all Spain this area stand up against them and was never conquered and continued with the Christian faith. I am not far away from the birthplace of Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits about 500 hundred years ago and I am surrounded with many old convents and monasteries, almost all empty as the last 40 years traditions of more of than a thousand years have changed and people have abandoned religion in masse. I assisted to a relative’s funeral last week and people younger than 70s do not enter a church not even for a funeral. They will go to the funeral home or to the church’s outside to present their condolences to the family but they won’t dare to get inside the church. Me myself I go only at funerals as I do not want to stand up against the crow.
I have been sensing we live in extraordinary times since I was a teenager or so, I did not know what was going on but I sensed it very strongly inside and life have for some very strange reasons keep me wandering around until I got a clear picture of what is going on. This webpage has explain me so many things and let me connect the dots about. I see parallelisms in between today’s times and Jesus times, in the slow motion, fungus like attack on Ancient Israel by the Roman Empire and today’s attack on the the Christian institutions by the Cultural Marxism and the Globalist Communist Power, but I will not go too far on this. It is better not to speak too much as it may be too dangerous. The scriptures tell the story better than I can, so I will let the Bible to do the guiding.
Imagine the church today. They would tell Charles Martel to stand down and make peace with the Islam caliphate.
We’re at the end. Double fulfilment of the prophecies.
Francis has chewed up and spit out the Church traditions to the point that I actually could see a destruction of the office of the pope. Who do they elect after that heretic? The church hierarchy has acted for centuries as if they believed in the prophecy of the popes. That ends in 2027.
The elites and synagogue are acting as if they know the economy is going to intentionally or spiritually “blow” up.
Why the massive rearranging of everything now. The chief captains and mighty men at the top are acting as if there’s not going to be much left of this current system.
Lots of observations, a few theories. one sticks out more than others; a force majeure and the end.
What else is there to say about this, really?
Every facet of what humanity does in this current system has been allowed to be infiltrated and controlled by malignant actors, there appear to be no innovations to extricate us from the inevitable dead end. Its spiritually disturbed and I think you are correct that only a divine will and intervention could right the ship.
The symbol for Zugzwang is a circle within a circle – the most ancient representation of the all seeing eye.
Today’s Christians and Churches don’t even fully understand Apostle Paul.
It is Paul that said you should isolate unbelievers and reprimand Christians who are straying AND if they don’t come back on track then they should be forced out of the group.
1 Corinthians 5:11 ESV
“But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one.”
1 Corinthians 5:9
“I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people;”
2 Thessalonians 3:6
“Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from every brother who leads an unruly life and not according to the tradition which you received from us.”
Today’s Churches preach tolerance of everybody even if they behave badly or worship other God’s. The Bible says otherwise. This is why I do not attend church even though I believe Jesus Christ is my savior and the center of my life. It is pointless to fellowship with Christians in name only. Those people are hypocrites. Just the other day Taylor Swift claims she is Christian but she promotes abortion as a choice. Such hypocrite.
Today’s Christians are nothing but a pack of retards, indoctrinated in the public school system, and are only able to drink warm milk.
Their whole Christian experience revolves around Paul and their deep personal relationship with Jesus. The pastors have become Buddhas. There essentially is no difference anymore as the Eastern religions have unduly influenced today’s laodicean Christian church.
Once saved, always saved! 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Today’s Christian would quote Paul and tell you to be a shining example that we could perhaps convert the Islamists. The Paul quoting dummy would tell you that perhaps we could all live together and that it’s just our deep personal relationship with Jesus that matters.
That was pastor’s message last week in the funeral, Pauline peace and some things about salvation in heaven. Nothing else. Nothing about the rest of the bible. I listened carefully without surprises in a quite detached manner.
You guys are so right.

Bank of England and Treasury think UK is ‘likely’ to need digital currency, the Telegraph reports
February 4, 20232:14 PM ESTLast Updated 6 hours ago
LONDON, Feb 4 (Reuters) – The Bank of England (BoE) and Britain’s finance ministry think the UK is likely to need to create a central bank digital currency (CBDC) later this decade, the Telegraph newspaper reported on Saturday, citing an unreleased government report.
“On the basis of our work to date, the Bank of England and HM Treasury judge that it is likely a digital pound will be needed in the future,” the Telegraph quoted BoE Governor Andrew Bailey and finance minister Jeremy Hunt as saying in the joint report.
“It is too early to commit to build the infrastructure for one, but we are convinced that further preparatory work is justified,” the Telegraph quoted the report saying.
If you wonder why murder rates in the US are creeping up, take a look at the top 10 countries for murder. They all feed the US open borders, while the majority are in Central and South America (of course). The Aztec, Inca, and Mayan culture of death worship is in the DNA. South Africa is #6.
Did I tell this story already?
I was on a Zoom tutoring call with a student, whose dad works for the city of Toronto economic development branch. Dad was conducting an interview while I was tutoring and I could hear the whole thing. The panel asked questions and the interviewee nailed the answers. Well prepared, articulate, enthusiastic. So the interview ends, and Dad is in his call with the other panel members and all agreed at how perfect she was for the job. Dad says there is one problem however. They can’t hire her. She is white. Panel goes quiet. The end.
We are living under a kakistocracy that is governed by those at the top of the pyramid. The dumb and dumber are being purposely groomed to populate the offices of government and authority.
What amazes me is that most adults take these people seriously.
Satan will have conflict as there is not order in the hierarchy and infighting with these policies is inevitable.
They are incredibly crafty and smart and they have done and achieved a lot, but the basic problem remains: they not believe in the existence of God or in the necessary order. And too, they do not have a clue of how how to herd even when they assume they know. Being the self appointed “chosen ones”, I mean, and “Alt-Gods” does not mean anything if you have got any clue on the basics on animals.
This is what is happening in South Africa, whites, the most talented and intelligent race, abandoning the country and then, the country falling in shambles.
I have been a small animal keeper for about six years and if something animals have taught me is that all of them are hierarchic: rabbits are hierarchic, hens are hierarchic, dogs are hierarchic and cows, mi friend José have told me, are hierarchic too. If you upset the group of animals, like getting away of some hens or introducing new ones to the flock, they always fight each other to establish a new order and this is what is going to happen in the Iron and Clay Kingdom too.
These “elites” are too arrogant and full of hubris. A technological society like ours needs the input of white Western European descent intelligent males to function, I am sorry to be PI, but blacks, Latinos and women are not up to the task.
So what we have here?…
The top people put in the bottom of the hierarchy and the bottom people on the top. Call this logical, rational or smart, but even my little doggy Lisa knows better and would not take any of this and will fight with the other doggy in a really nasty way if I give too much attention to Kira.
These “elites” are just bullies, their “Globalist Alt-Project” is doomed from the start, as South Africa is doomed. In their power hubris they can not remember they live with us and they need us to function, if we go, in the end, they will go too.
I’m also amazed that there was absolutely no push back.
My family member at Health Canada got asked which pronoun she wants to use for some correspondence. She told them she’s not participating in that. The staff member was insistent that she had to choose a pronoun, ‘everyone had to do it’. Well my relative just was not going to and told them to deal with that, if they can’t figure out she’s a woman, then that’s their problem and she doesn’t care.
CJ Evans this World Affairs Brief is very insightful and says it like it is. Joel Skousen is very knowledgeable, however, I think WWIII will come sooner than 2027. I see the USA getting more socialist by the minute as this report is a very accurate description. Just look at today’s self entitled millennials and generation Z. They are all brainwashed communists who hate what the USA stood for in the past. I am not surprised to see reverse racism happening. I saw that video of whites living in a South Africa shantytown due to discrimination. Pretty Ugly.
These are examples of how Satan plays both sides by causing discord. The Synagogue of Satan promoted exploitation of blacks via the slave trade as well as promoting white racism against blacks. The blacks get angry and now the Synagogue of Satan will put down whites and promote reparations for blacks.
The lesson here is to be very careful not to go along or tolerate evil. Racism against anyone is evil. Satan will lure anyone into going along with his deeds and then turn those actions against that person who joined him. Satan is an accuser and father of all lies. Satan is known to go to God to accuse people.
Only the grace of Jesus Christ will save you from Satan’s accusations.
What goes around comes around until one repents of their sins and turns to Jesus Christ.
The worst part about South Africa is that it has turned into probably the most violent country in the world. Moreover asset values across the board in South Africa have fallen precipitously. Their economy continues to fall apart and the normal things like road repair and such go undone.
Based on household income, South Africa has the cheapest housing in the world. It’s actually much cheaper than that of the United States. That’s because nobody with money wants to live there anymore as they see what happens to people who own assets in their country. Who in their right mind would pay a lot of money for a house in South Africa? Their entire economy is in a shambles now that the least talented people are in control of the government.
Take a look at how cheap South African housing is.
I’m actually very tired of all the calls about racism. That’s a term that those who do the will of their father the devil like to promote. Those with stunted intellectual capacities dwell on racism and use it as an excuse to expropriate, extort, and manipulate their enemies to achieve a desired outcome.
As we wrap up this age, there is a full out war against white European Christians. Once they’re taken out of the way the man of perdition can finally be revealed for the whole world to embrace. The world’s population is off its leash and it is out of control.
If we never had covid and the injection campaigns, I wouldn’t be sounding like this. But I am so completely disappointed with humanity and people in general. I am so shocked to see how people have behaved and accepted what would previously be considered deserving of livestock on a ranch.
Did you see the Chinese used your phrase “force majeure” to describe their spy balloon from veering off course to end up over our missile silos in Montana?
The CCP probably read the blog. So far the DOJ hasn’t frozen any of my bank accounts.🥺
The CCP are curious to know what’s in store for them when they strike Manasseh.
So true what you say. The reality is that when blacks and/or Hispanics are in charge there is a lot more corruption, crime, and incompetence. South Africa is a case in point. Once the blacks came in charge , crime and corruption runs rampant. When the whites were in charge of South Africa it had the best economy and the highest standard of living in Africa for blacks and whites alike. Rhodesia was another country with a great economy and then Mugabe took over and look where it is today with a poor economy and poor standard of living. Countries with mostly white populations like Iceland, Norway, and Finland have well run societies. Blacks and Hispanics benefit when whites are in charge.
I find that colored people do not have the moral standards like whites have. The Synagogue of Satan aim to destroy society and encourage discord by allowing corrupt incompetent people of all races rise to the top and infiltrate the rest of society. They also destroy societies by allowing hordes of different races and cultures to overrun a society. Just look at today’s USA and United Kingdom. Not all whites are competent either ,just look at Joe Biden and Gavin Newsom. There are reasons why people stick to their own kind.
Racism and division are tactics of the adversary — 100%. It’s also fruit of the flesh, and not the Holy Spirit. The mistake of falling for this trap = adversary’s fuel for today’s woke diversity. You see this playbook in the churches as well. Division. Division. Division. Protestant versus Catholic. KJV vs all other translations. They don’t teach that no one can come to the Son — unless the Father draws them in. And once they have faith in the Son — you should be sealed by the Holy Spirit. Once you’re sealed by the Holy Spirit — it’s the Holy Spirit that renews/regenerates your heart. It’s the Holy Spirit that’s the helper and guides you; and helps you bear good fruit of the Spirit. And once someone is sealed by the Holy Spirit — they become one body in Christ. There is no Jew or non-Jew. Male or Female. Black or White. Catholic or Protestant.
But the problem with the world today — most have the worldly spirit. Especially, the one’s coming into countries like the USA, France, Italy, and Spain. It’s primarily the flesh. The Holy Spirit, for the majority, is nowhere to be found. And they aren’t being drawn to the Son by the Father, because they are of the world. And the father of this world is going to spend as much money as possible to keep their loyalty. The father of this world is going to promote them to the top of corporations, politics, judicial system, and businesses. The father of this world is going to bail them out of jail. But the father of this world is not going to tell them he’s marching them towards a cliff. The wages of sin is death. So that’s one reason for the push for woke diversity. You can’t have a system in place where people are being beheaded for refusing the mark if the majority in power are Christians fueled by the Holy Spirit. But a woke crowd that sees the white man as evil slave masters — they’ll gladly take their father’s mark, and help find any Christian.
The Hebrew calendar is 5783. There’s good debate in support of 166 missing years in their calendar. If you add 166 years to 5783 — you come up with the year 5,949. That’s 44 years before midnight (tribulation). That’s just my theory — that this age ends in the year 6,000. After that is a 1,000 year reign with Christ (revelation 20). Then the books are opened and the Judge (Christ) judges all.
Coincidently, in about 44 years — we should see the full fruit of today’s woke diversity. Not just in the USA — but in Europe as well. Crime is increasing in countries like France. And the perpetrators are foreigners. Many cases with expired visas. The proposed solution by those in power — send them to the countryside where it’s an “aging population.” Many believe these countries in Europe will be approaching majority Muslim around 2050.
Some say tribulation is this decade. Honestly, I think there’s more time. Not to say there won’t be any wars in-between. There could be of course. But if it’s this decade why is the adversary spending 1 trillion in new futuristic cities – with construction taking 10+ years? The earthquake from the final seal would demolish it. The bowls of wrath would demolish it.
Not sure if you saw my reply to your post on the previous article: https://knowyouradversary.com/2023/01/25/elysium-slowly-emerging-wealth-disparities-to-continue-widening/#comment-8771
Keep in mind the follow passage:
2 Peter 1:20 “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.”
Everything else is background noise. The Spirit leads.
The 1,000 year reign with Christ on the earth is definitely after the great tribulation. The reason is simple – Scripture says those chosen to reign with Christ are those that refused the “mark of the beast” and were martyred. Therefore, the 1,000 year reign is very literal and to say it has already happened would be a direct contradiction to the Holy Scriptures:
And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony about Jesus and for proclaiming the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his statue, nor accepted his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They all came to life again, and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
Then after the 1,000 years end we get Satan released from prison – and the war from the Old Testament comes to fruition (Ezekiel 38). This marks the end of 7,000 years.
Then, finally, the books are opened and the Great White Throne of Judgment commences. Those called to life – inherit the Kingdom of God – New Jerusalem. Which is a city brought down from Heaven to the earth. It also marks the beginning of new heavens and new earth.
Also, it’s interesting “generation Z.” This is for anyone born between 1996-2010. If the current year is 5949 – then “generation Z” would indeed be the last generation that would be allowed to enter old age. Most of them would be in their 70’s in the year 6,000 (if the current year 5949 is accurate). Every generation after gen Z would not be allowed to reach those years, because the great tribulation, rapture (end of tribulation – last trumpet), or the bowls of wrath would cut their lives short. They’d be in their 40-50’s (generation alpha).
Otto, on what Church teaching do you base that the 1,000 year reign of Christ was not the Church reign but is some still future event? If you reply that it’s in the Bible, then I am afraid you are making the error or private interpretation which the Bible itself warns against. Can you even find a Church Father to support your view?
You do realize that the Apocalypse (Revelation) was not written in chronological order, don’t you? This is one of many problems with private interpretation. It lacks scholarship and reasonable interpretation.
The Book of Revelation is indeed not in order.
But why would I first need a church to support this view — when God’s own words speak for themselves:
“They had not worshiped the beast or his statue, nor accepted his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They all came to life again, and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”
Therefore, it’s impossible the 1,000 years has already passed, because that would mean the mark of the beast has already occurred.
Also, there’s precedent in Scripture to choose God’s words over any human being on this planet:
“For you ignore God’s law and substitute your own tradition”
This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. They worship me in vain, teaching as doctrine the commandments of men.
It is better to trust in the LORD, than to put confidence in man.
So if Scripture says one thing — but men says another; I’m going to choose Scripture. Plain and simple. If that means I’m kicked out of a church, or I’m ridiculed/insulted — so be it. There’s only true church — the body of Christ. There’s only one true judge — Jesus Christ. Is the pope going to be holding my hand on the judgement seat? Or a pastor? Or some youtuber? No — it’s going to me alone, so I’ll rely on the words of God. I’ll be stubborn for the Holy Scriptures — and not to fit in or be liked by men. You don’t need to go to a college to learn scripture. There’s people that have gone that route – and they will attest that they’ve learned the most simply by seeking God for help, and reading Scriptures on their own without anyone explaining to them anything. Also — 2 Peter 1:20 simply says they were moved by the Holy Spirit — therefore, it came from God. Acts 2:17 goes further:
In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. 18 In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on my servants—men and women alike—and they will prophesy.
Otto, if everyone has a right to interpret the Scriptures as he wished, you will find different interpretations, despite what you believe to be correct. How do you know you are correct? This conundrum is why the Apostles always appeal to their authority and Tradition for correct interpretation especially since Peter said there are many difficult things in the Scriptures (Paul’s epistles specifically but it applies to all of Scripture), that evil men pervert to erroneous interpretations.
Hi Paul – that’s why it’s best to pray to the Father and seek wisdom from God. Ask the Father to send you his Holy Spirit in his Son’s name to guide you toward truth and understanding. Listen – if the major churches today had 100% correct doctrine – the road wouldn’t be very narrow to God’s Kingdom. But instead it’s a very wide and broad road to hades. How does that make sense if there are billions of Christians in the world? And if God answers you – don’t ever make the mistake of attributing it to your own works. But always give the glory back to the Father or Jesus Christ. For we called to be the salt of the earth:
“In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your Heavenly Father”
The scriptures are not rocket science. Sometimes God gives understanding and wisdom to the lowest of men. And those whom we praise and worship are spiritually blind when it comes to scripture.
“Racism” is a very loosely defined term. What is it about racism that is evil? Is thinking your race is superior or better than another evil?
In terms of the synagogue of satan, racism is a term that is used when someone thinks there are differences in the races. Satan is trying to convince everyone that everyone is the same. Not just equal, but the same. I’m not a respecter of persons, so these types of physical characteristics mean little to me. But we certainly all aren’t the same, and the more we try to convince ourselves otherwise the worse world condition becomes. Indeed, we are equal, but we are not the same.
The New Testament doesn’t really address these issues, but the Old Testament made it all abundantly clear that we were to avoid peoples who contradicted our ways of life. Whenever the Israelites brought in other people, they always fell into disrepair.
And it’s not just racism; Satan uses other terms like xenophobia, homophobia, Christian nationalism, etc. I think you get the picture. Satan has convinced us that all the different peoples, races, creeds, colors, and tongues can live together if we all just convinced ourselves that this could be. Unfortunately for the naive Christian, the great preponderance of the world’s population is not moral and will take advantage of you and lie and cheat and steal you blind if given the opportunity. Today’s Christians are very naive, because they’re too busy taking their mindsets and placing it on everyone else. Today’s Christian actually believes that we all are capable of being the same. Never once in the Bible did it ever say this. This is completely antithetical to the admonitions of scripture. What a sad sad fatal mistake. And this is why the West has fallen down.
Indeed, CJ. I believe that we are all equal before the law, be it man’s law or God’s law. However, that is where equality ends.
I highly recommend this old 1945 book, The Cult of Equality (PDF):
The Israelites knew equality was a lie and the Romans knew it (after learning the hard way, with their empire falling). And let’s not forget one of the greatest lessons with the Tower of Babel and its associated multi-ethnic utopia that failed miserably.
#112, Peter the Roman, preaching on ending hate, but never trying to get people to turn to Jesus. That’s why the crowds love him. The subject of Jesus is too controversial for the masses to hear.
JUBA, Feb 5 (Reuters) – Pope Francis urged the people of South Sudan on Sunday to resist the “venom of hatred” so they could achieve the peace and prosperity that have eluded them through years of bloody ethnic conflicts.
In his last public engagement before flying home, Francis presided at an open-air Mass on the grounds of a mausoleum for South Sudan’s liberation hero John Garang, who died in 2005. The Vatican said 100,000 people attended the Mass.
Indeed – what is racism actually?
I thought it was a negative comment or attitude toward someone of a different race than you, but more so when that race is inferior -but who is the judge of that? I wouldn’t even know how to qualify that. It really is clear as mud. I remember describing a student as dark-skinned to my Grade 8 class, with nothing more than an answer to a question. ex -Q: What does he look like? A: He is tall and dark-skinned. They screamed racism to me. Kids went nuts saying I’d get fired for making racist comments. What? Can I not even make an observation? Is this what it has become?
I often think of the two-thirds of the human population that are not Christian. Regarding these lost souls, the God of the Bible is clear in this regard. Anyone who does not worship the God of the Bible worship’s death.
Proverbs 8:36 KJV
But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
So, these Christian nations are now introducing all of the foreign religions and these non-christians bring death with them. It’s as simple as that. They bring death. If you are a true remnant Christian, there is no other way to conclude this.
And only a re-engineered person can actually believe that the white European nations and their offshoots were not christian.
Proverbs 8:36 KJV
But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
