Through the Lens of End-Times Prophecy: “The Great Reset & Fourth Industrial Revolution” (Guest Video)

Pastor Keith Malcomson, featured presenter, explains how the beginnings of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” happening in the world just now could well result in the global, so-called end-times, one-world government foretold in both Old and New Testament prophetic books (Daniel and Revelation).

“Jordan Peterson’s Warning to the World” (Guest Feature) and Jesus Christ’s Prophecies of Hope

I saw this today and it seems a perfect addendum to the previous post.

Take heed; take heart; but also take hope.

To Peterson’s own hope of  spiritually-driven, peaceful solutions to the mess we’ve made of things in the world through hate and division and not facing our own part in all of this, may I add the hope of the last prophecies in the Book of Revelation, aka, The Revelation of Jesus Christ, that cite Jesus’ second coming where He, Himself, will bring the peace on earth promised elsewhere in both Old and New Testaments.  Here is one summary of that period of time.-pbn

On the Kyle Rittenhouse Dual Legacy. Be Encouraged.

Phyllis Beveridge Nissila

At this juncture in the current American War where the enemy has shown its hand, that is to say the “enemy within” that would “fundamentally transform” this nation from a representative republic to communist globalism, a significant victory took place yesterday: eighteen-year-0ld Kyle Rittenhouse was found “not guilty” of all charges against him in a clear-cut case of self-defense in the face of lawless attackers. Here is just one summary of his case.

Reading a thread of response to this major victory in Amerca’s new war, I came across a very discouraging comment, however, where the writer suggests the case only shows how the prosecution-and-cohorts revealed a format on how to continue attempting to destroy not just the life of a young hero but also how to work-around the justice system by (I would add), the now predictable tactics of intimidation, witholding evidence, desperately trying to change the subject and spin the facts, and arguably priming a complicit media.

And it’s understandable why the prosecution would try, though some of their methods were proven to flaunt the law, because so much destruction of justice has occurred with impunity in this nation in the past few years and this only emboldens such people.

But I think the battle for getting America back has only just begun.

You see, it takes knowing not only who your enemy really is (despite the propaganda, gaslighting, etc.) but also how to prep for war.

To knowing who the enemy really is: as Abraham Lincoln put it, “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time,” and actions speak louder than words.

In today’s war, there has been enough burning, looting, assaulting, lying, cheating, and naked lawlessness to leave no doubt in the minds of most of the people, now, as to our real enemy, though this enemy would have us all think it’s each other.

To prepping for war: as Sun Tzu said, “Of old the expert in battle first would make himself invincible and then wait for his enemy to expose his (the enemy’s) vulnerability.”

At that point–this point–when little doubt is left as to the truth regarding the enemy, and when they have so blatantly exposed their vulnerability in their lawlessness, we are inspired by heroes, some young, others unlikely, but all who understand the enemy and who are prepped for not only service to the cause but also for the battle.

Both, important.

The Rittenhouse Dual Legacy

Hero in point: Kyle Rittenhouse.

Yes, in the midst of America’s current war, a significant court case was won by the evidence of the (then) seventeen year-old’s restraint and skill in deploying his second amendment rights when members of the lawless mob attacked him, but when the dust of victory and significance settles I believe he will also be remembered for his service to his country by his real purposes for being in the battleground close to home.

Rittenhouse came to the scene, as the writer of the linked article put it, “to fill in the gap the civil authorities had left. He arrived with a first aid kit and a legal long gun. He helped clean walls during the day. At night, he patrolled, offering first aid. He avoided conflict.”

For they also serve who fill in the gap when others stand down, who render aid to both enemy and victims, who clean up the hate in graffiti form or other, while all the while understanding that in the face of a lawless enemy one may need kinetic backup–and skill and discipline in using it.

Even Jesus told His followers when He sent them out to preach the Gospel of Peace, “sell your cloak and buy a sword” (Luke 22:36) because He also knew He was sending them out “as sheep among wolves” (Matthew 10:16), so they were to be “as cunning as serpants but as harmless as doves.”

So on both counts, Rittenhouse was the (very young) man of the hour in just one corner of the larger and multi-faceted battle being waged right now in America, a hero who will go down in real history.

Already, the memes and songs are being published and sung in his honor.

And thus encouraged–or perhaps re-encouraged–now to our own service, be it well-known or obscure, extraordinary or ordinary, for they also serve who do whatever they can, with awareness, skill, and discipline, in a time of war.

If the young have this kind of skill, discipline, and courage, so too, can everyone.

Carry on!

And, my fellow Americans, always remember that our real enemy is not each other.

Guest Article: “The Transhuman Roots of the Metaverse”–Fascinating, Creepy, Existential, and Mind-Blowing all in One…

…except that the truth is: “It is appointed to men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27), as put by an agent (St. Paul) of the Author of the real universe, time, life, creative ability, humans, and all the raw materials to design and build everything that is made by humans, except for one: they, the created, cannot design and build a version of themselves equal to or better than their own Creator.

If you think about it, right?

Oh, and a few more things to consider in man’s quest to be or to best God: famine, wars, volcanoes, plagues of locusts, earthquakes,  demonic invasions (see Revelation, Book of, which lists even more judgements heading this way for those who would be gods rather than believe God) and it’s back to the mother board, so to speak, if it can be found in the rubble.

Enjoy, beware, hold on to your mind, and stay close to the real God.-pbn

On Resisting Fear in the Day of The COVID (Good to Know for Body, Mind, and Soul)

Phyllis Beveridge Nissila

‘Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ (Isaiah 41:10)

For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)

On Fear 

The thing about fear is that it’s a thought suppressor.

Indeed, it suppresses not only (certain kinds) of thought but also Continue reading

‘Tis the Season to Boost the Immune System with Grins and Giggles (oldies but goodies). New Holiday Humor Series

 

Phyllis Beveridge Nissila

INTRODUCTION TO HOLIDAY HUMOR SERIES

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine. (Proverbs 17:22)

A friend of mine and I were discussing how tyrants dislike humor.

And there seem to be a, ah, boat-load of tyrants, these days (pick your “ism”), many, infamous on the world stage, most, petty locals, and some meaner than a junkyard dog, as the expression goes.

Know what I mean?

We discussed two main reasons:

  1. For one thing, humor is often the very best way to expose truth to the most people (satire, for example), especially in this, The Day of the Cancel Culturians who sport their own brand of Grinch.
  2.  And these days of so much planned, some say, ill will and illness, the Cancel Culturians likely also know that if you want to break things down it works better if the masses are bogged down with bad vibes, kind of like viruses that weaken the systems and put you to bed for days, weeks, or longer. But at the very least, cancelling fun wipes those grins, giggles, guffaws, and good old-fashioned gut-busting belly-laughs right off the medicine shelf where you keep the stress relievers.

For this new holiday-themed series, I’m going with reason number two, and offering my attempt at good old-fashioned fun that I hope will also serve to brighten the spirit and lighten that load. Continue reading
