Well, here we are 5 days into 2kX, and so many things are happening, have happened recently, and at such speed, that it’s nigh impossible to keep up with everything.
Copenhagen summit, came and went, and it’s still uncertain what it all portends for all of us, especially in the West. My sense of it is, that it was an attempt by the UN to set up a world government, to handle “global issues” like “climate change”, but as we all should know by now, any type of government’s appetite and thirst for power and control, only grows each time it’s somewhat assuaged.
It is a reality that the nature of Man, ever since the first couple chose the path of disobedience, forfeited their dominion over the earth. and over their natural state, to that of the one designated both by himself, and our Lord, “prince of the power of the air” and “prince of this world” under whom all kingdoms are controlled (not readily apparent to mere mortals), and whose efforts at tirelessly deceiving Man towards Man’s own destruction, (misery loves company my Nanna used to say), by capitalizing on his nature that Man acquired by their disobedience.
The fruit of this nature include, disobedience, rebellion, idolatry, domination by appetites of the body (flesh), pride, envy, covetousness, selfishness, self-centredness, and in general, all the bad traits, acquired and manifested in him and his hordes since their fall.
Thus all human attempts at government in one form or another, will be flawed and susceptible to the same lust for control as manifested by their prince in his domination of them.
They will seek to have authority and control over their fellow residents of this planet, to enforce their desires upon the rest of us.
As I stated in previous posts, the best conceived form by Man, was the US Constitution, wherein the authors sought to maximise personal and corporate (or the body politic) liberty and freedom.
It’s interesting in light of Copenhagen especially, that the bible predicted 2500 years ago (Daniel) and over 2000 yr ago (St. John, the revelator, author of the Apocalypse called Revelation), that as the end of days on earth for the present world order approach, there would be a super world government, and that the individual heading it up, would be the most evil person in the history of Man, that he would be completely empowered and controlled by the Prince of this World, and that life on this planet would become like a living hell.
I confess, though I have known of this most of my life, I have never given it much thought until the last 3 yr or so, as I watched events unfold in the world.
As I stated before, when I watched the mass delusion and adulation, that elected the current president of USA, and the backlash against any and all questioning of his background, expertise, experience, associates, or policies, I got an inkling how this World Ruler, would ascend to power. He of course, will be supernaturally enabled and endowed by the Prince of this World.
Recently, I re read a couple of books that are masterpieces of exposure, instruction in dealing with and discerning, invisible forces at work in the world.
First up, “The Latent Power of the Soul” by a Chinese author Watchman Nee (Nee Tuo-Sheng), who gained much firsthand knowledge and experience in his native China, though the spent the last 20 yr of his life (1952-1972), in Mao’s prisons.
The other, “War On The Saints” by Jesse Penn-Lewis, a first hand participant and observer, during the early 20th century in Wales, of the revivals of both godly and ungodly supernatural forces at work.
They are a goldmine so to speak of valuable knowledge and I would heartily endorse them to any curious seekers. Nee wrote his book as a separate 4th book to his series called “The Spiritual Man” vol.1-3.
There’s an old quote from Yahweh, to his prophet, wherein he He says, “my people perish for lack of knowledge” and “where there is no vision, the people perish”. His Son expanded on it during His earthly sojourn, saying, “there is none so blind as they that WILL not see” – ie that the reason most people suffer from spiritual blindness and lack of vision, is a CHOICE they make to remain so.
He also said, “The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light” and the meaning of eye in this context, from those like Vine, qualified to be expositors of the Word, :
“at the eye signifies the understanding is because the sight of the body corresponds to the sight of its spirit, which is the understanding; and because it corresponds, in the Word the understanding is signified by the eye in almost every place where it is mentioned, even where it is believed to be otherwise”
and: “if therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness”.
It is the function of the Spirit of God, to illumine our understanding and to lead us into all truth, aided by the renewing of our minds daily as we study God’s Word.
Paul prayed in Ephesians, “Eph 1:15-23
“Eph 1:15 For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints,
Eph 1:16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers,
Eph 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him,
Eph 1:18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,
Eph 1:19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might
Eph 1:20 that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places,
Eph 1:21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.
Eph 1:22 And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church,
Eph 1:23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. ”
Paul knew that one needed help from God via His Spirit opening the eyes of our heart, our understanding, to comprehend that which is both supranatural and supernatural, and not visible to the physical eyes, without this help.
So, we’re told that without that revelation, the “light” that is in us, or that we believe is in us, is actually darkness.
One only has to look at the governments of this world, organisations (ie UN), the events transpiring daily, both in the open and hidden, (revealed only thru someone’s efforts to uncover and expose), to see that as Peter said, “the whole world lieth in darkness” – even tho they would deny it.
I will attempt to get back to adding posts on various pertinent, current events, soon.
