THE COMING CULTURAL REVOLUTION
The assaults on historic monuments and statues in the US since George Floyd’s death have become quite crazy and spread far beyond people with connections to slavery in the South. They have even destroyed the statue dedicated to Ulysses S. Grant who helped win the war against slavery. The riots being staged by Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA are inspired by Marxism and geared solely to the destruction of America. The socialists had been waiting for an opportunity to protest, and the death of George Floyd provided the perfect occasion. Their tactics include destroying statues, setting fires, breaking windows, banning books and renaming streets. Their demands include the abolishment of the police and justice systems and abolishment of the prison system. As a result of the activist campaigns, mayors of several cities have reduced police presence. This has led in several cases to dramatic increases in violent crime.
A Venezuelan woman is warning Americans that loss of a country to a devastating idea like socialism starts with the tearing down of statues and censoring everything. She saw it as a teenager growing up in Venezuela. “Chavez didn’t want all that history displayed and then he changed the street names, then came the school curriculum. Some movies couldn’t be shown on TV channels …”
In the US, a black woman interviewed said you can’t rebuild until you break it all the way down. The New York BLM president Hawk Newsome says they will “burn the system down” if America doesn’t give in to us. Iran is delighted as they have long called for “Death to America” and now they see America doing it themselves.
This reminds me of the British Fabian Society’s stained glass window now installed at the London School of Economics. In the centre of the window is the globe of the earth. On either side stands a man with a hammer about to come down on the earth. Across the top are the words “REMOULD IT NEARER TO THE HEART’S DESIRE.” Below are men and women kneeling and praying towards a pile of books, the wisdom of man, not of God. They believe in wars and crises to make people more submissive to their ideals. The Fabian Society, in which Tony Blair has been a member, has influenced the Labour Parties in both Australia and NZ too.
Around the world, statues continue to be torn down. What will they do about the names of cities and streets that offend? We may have difficulty finding our way round in this ‘reset’ world. In the UK, Oxford University has revealed plans to ‘decolonise’ its maths and science degrees and will allow students of any subject who have been affected by the Black Lives Matter furore to seek lenient marking.
NZ ice cream manufacturer Tip Top is planning to rename its chocolate-covered Eskimo Pie ice cream bars which they first introduced in the 1940s as it is considered racially insensitive. The owner of rice company Uncle Ben’s will stop using the image of a black farmer that has featured on its packaging since the 1940s, and may change its name. Companies around the world are making changes to their products and branding following the death of George Floyd.
In NZ, Hamilton mayor Paula Southgate has received threatening and abusive emails and phone calls, including a veiled threat of lynching, following the removal of the Captain Hamilton statue to a safe place. It was removed following threats by a Maori elder to tear it down during a BLM march.
In many BLM marches children and young people, encouraged by teachers, can be seen leading the rallies often with fists in the air. The raised fist, or the clenched fist, is a symbol of solidarity and support. It is also used as a salute to express unity, strength, defiance, or resistance. Satan loves to use children for his purposes. We have already seen children at the forefront of the LGBT movement and climate change demands. Most of the people out on the marches have no idea what sort of organisation they are supporting and its aims.
In 2009, just two months after becoming an MP, Jacinda Ardern was elected president of the International Union of Socialist Youth and gave a talk in which she used the word “comrade” 15 times in seven minutes! The meeting documents state that the aim of the union is to “defend and spread our core socialist principles.” Basically, this means a redistribution of resources so that everyone is equal. There are a huge number of problems with this. Dr Muriel Newman writes, “There is no doubt about it – our Prime Minister is again leading the world with bold measures. This time it’s not global warming, our nuclear free moment, nor closing down the oil and gas exploration industry. It is much more fundamental and potentially far more destructive. Jacinda Ardern is transforming New Zealand into a socialist state. And the tragedy is that most people are completely unaware that it is happening.”
Most of the NZ Labour Party is also anti-Israel, pro abortion, euthanasia, cannabis, LGBT+ and man-made climate change and socialist PM Jacinda did nothing about the BLM marches even though they were held at Level 2 of Covid-19 when such large gatherings were not allowed. NZ will not be able to escape God’s judgement as long as it continues down this path. We will become more like Venezuela.
Israel reports that many “recovered” Covid-19 patients are being left with long-term debilitating physical, cognitive and psychiatric damage, sometimes even in people who only suffered mild symptoms. Patients are suffering from phantom pains, memory loss, personality changes, psychological issues and extreme fatigue, along with lungs that won’t heal, even months after being discharged from hospital. English woman Hayley Forster at 12 weeks post-Covid-19 is one of the many experiencing persistent severe fatigue which is a common outcome of other infections too. She gets breathless and has chest pains too. Recommended are eggs, spinach and oats! Scientists agree they need to learn more about this post-Covid-19 problem.
In Europe, illicit raves are contributing to a revival in Covid-19 infections, while in the US thousands became infected at BLM protests.
Ahead of International Identity Day (September 16th), the Ghana Parliament has voted to change their constitution to make the biometric “Ghana Card” the only legal means of ID for things like voting. For decades now the New World Order has made a practise of testing things like vaccines and technology in Third World Countries, especially in Africa, before rolling them out to the rest of the world.
In NZ and elsewhere there have been an increasing number of incidents where people of one race attack another (Matt 24:7). A number of Chinese have been attacked and accused of spreading the corona-virus. Now a NZ Labour candidate for the upcoming elections who is an ethnic Indian has been the centre of a number of unpleasant incidents. Dr Gaurav Sharma has had people refuse to shake his hand because his skin tone did not match theirs.
“The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Sam 16:7) We are all one race.
Pope Francis has given three more titles to the Catholic Virgin Mary which all belong to God, just as Holy Father belongs to God. The new titles are “Mother of Mercy,” “Mother of Hope” and “Comfort of Migrants.”
The LGBT+ movement has not gone away. In NZ, Queenstown will host what is believed to be the country’s first rainbow wedding expo to help boost the tourist town’s economy. Plans for this Winter Pride Festival include trumpeting the town as the rainbow wedding capital.
Taiwan has hosted one of the world’s few gay pride marches at a time when most have been cancelled due to Covid-19. They say they were “marching for the world.”
Amazon has blocked ads for a new book highlighting how the transgender movement damages young women. Abigail Shrier wrote the book “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters” to highlight how the transgender movement is hurting women by trying to normalise the idea of girls and young women having life-changing surgeries.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has published its handbook on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. The handbook defines gender identity as “a person’s innate, deeply felt psychological identification as a man, woman or another gender, which may or may not correspond to the sex assigned to them at birth.”
The UN has warned that the world is on the verge of the worst food crisis in at least 50 years as the recession following the COVID-19 pandemic may put basic nutrition beyond impoverished people’s reach. Forty-nine million more people may fall into extreme poverty due to the outbreak. (Leading up to Matthew 24:7)
Israel’s media watchdog group has withdrawn the broadcast license from the US-based evangelical network GOD TV, accusing it of seeking to target Jews with Christian content. Missionary activities in general are closely monitored by the authorities and are offensive to many Israelis. According to Israeli government data, around two percent of the population is Christian, mainly Arabs.
A Messianic Jewish congregation of about 350 people in Israel has won a restraining order against members of an anti-evangelism organisation that it says has for years harassed the congregation and even damaged its property.
A quote by Mark Twain: “If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re misinformed.”
To be informed, try reading the Bible!
THE RISING WAR AGAINST CHRISTIANITY IN THE WEST
A Californian evangelical church in the San Francisco Bay Area is being forced to sell its property due to a city ordinance that prohibits houses of worship from occupying the first floor of downtown buildings. The city’s aim is to “stimulate commercial activity in the downtown area and to establish a pedestrian-friendly, active and vibrant Main Street.”
In Alabama, a Mega-Church has lost its lease because the pastor liked the wrong tweets. Pastor Chris Hodges “liked’’” some posts on Donald Trump and China’s role in the corona-virus. A local English teacher decided to catalogue Hodges’s “likes” and share them with the press. Little did anyone know, it would be the beginning of the end of the church’s services at two local high schools. At least a third of the church’s two congregations are black and Hispanic and thousands of people leaned on the church for help that was not forthcoming elsewhere.
Shaun King, a controversial leader in the BLM movement, called for expanding the destruction of statues of historical figures to include churches and the Christian figure of Jesus, who the Bible describes as being a Jew from Bethlehem but King described as a “European.” He says statues of Jesus Christ are a “form of white supremacy” and should be torn down.
“You will be hated by all nations because of me.” (Matt 24:9)
Understanding what drives Jacinda Ardern.
In 2008 Ardern was elected president of the International Union of Socialist Youth. In early 2009, just two months after becoming an MP, Ardern presided over the union’s World Council annual meeting in her capacity as president.
