SAME OLD SAME OLD
ISRAEL, AMERICA & HISTORY OF ONE WICKED MAN
By: Resa LaRu Kirkland
I know, you've heard it before.
And yet, here we are...again.
As a history lover, I cannot help but notice the trends, cycles, behaviors, and consequences that humanity has repeated since leaving Eden. Oddly enough, in spite of the diversity of this planet, there are some things that are the same no matter where, when, or to whom they happen. Those are the things of eternal consequence, the things that truly matter when all the fluff and distraction of life is tossed aside.
They are what happens when good people choose evil.
Yea, and we also see the great wickedness one very wicked man can cause to take place among the children of men.--Book of Mormon, Alma 46:9
It has never ceased to amaze me that no matter which tribe of Israel you study--the Bible is about the tribe of Judah and the Book of Mormon is about some of the descendants of Judah's little brother Joseph, who left Jerusalem in about 600 BC and traveled by ship to the promised land of America--there is the same cycle. The people start out righteous, constantly seeking to do good. As a result, God blesses them with great gifts of knowledge, technology, wealth, abundance, peace and wisdom.
But then a curious thing happens, a thing that inevitably leads to THE ONE INEXORABLE TRUTH, a truth that Father knows but that we have to learn over and over again, and usually the hard way. Please follow me through the progression, as there are several steps that lead to the final, full understanding of this eternal truth.
For those of you new to WARCHICK writings, the above is why I refer to America and Israel as the "Joes" and the "Jews." Nearly all archaeologists and historians agree that the peoples who wound up in England, Scotland, Ireland, and parts of Western Europe descend from the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, the two sons of Joseph; that's not even counting the group mentioned above who were already in America when Europe landed, those who came to be known as the American Indians. That means that every Founding Father was of the House of Israel through the tribe of Joseph, thus fulfilling Isaiah's prophecy about the Stick of Judah and the Stick of Joseph, and Daniel's talk of the "Big branch" and the "Little Branch" of the same tree: Israel. This also indicates that the "New Jerusalem" and "New Zion" spoken of over and over again in the scriptures is in America, which makes perfect sense when you understand that nothing can stop God's plan, not even blood-thirsty Muslims stealing Jerusalem. ("16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. 17 So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more." Old Testament | Joel 3:16-17. Zion roars and Jerusalem utters? AFTER Zion shall Jerusalem be holy and Israel restored to the House of Israel by Zion, no less? Sounds like America and Israel in the past 100 years to me! America certainly roars, and I am always in awe of the way Israel quietly goes about being the most remarkable nation on earth.)Those of you who read me know that I am fond of saying, "We must stick together, the Jews and the Joes, in the war against the great evil of Islammunism." Whether you like it or not, America, you are the prophesied Joes. What, you thought it was just a coincidence that the whole world refers to our warriors as "Joes?" Not only from His mouth shall we know the truth, but from the mouths of millions shall it be eternally confirmed. And for those of you in full "Why I never!" gasping, I have one question: Do you honestly believe that God would command only ONE of the tribes of Israel to write their history? If so, where in the OT did He command ONLY Judah to write, or forbid any of the other tribes of Israel from writing? Yeah, that's what I thought. I swear to you this day that He commanded ALL 12 tribes to write their histories, and the day will come that we discover the Sticks of Reuben, Simeon, Dan, Gad, Levi, etc.)
Rather than these gifts inspiring man to be even more righteous, they cause him to begin to believe in his own knowledge, power, wisdom, and wealth. The more he gains, the more he credits himself. He begins to dismiss God, leaning instead unto his own understanding, and engaging in the only practice that divided Heaven in the pre-existence: the evil tongue.
Through the gift of this same free will that he will come to viciously suppress in others, this man will start planting little seeds of discontent among the righteous, stirring up emotions in order to disarm the logic center of the brain, as he knows all too well that logic and truth are NOT on his side. He will take little wounds and pick at them until they are red, swollen, and infected. Even when he gets his way, it will not be enough. He will use his free will to force others to do things his way over and over again and again, to greater and greater extremes of evil and insanity, focusing on tiny, imaginary, or long-ago offenses in order to try to justify unjustifiable behavior. (Think of the femmies, hippies, and minorities of the past 40 years. Even when the majority have agreed that there were wrongs in need of righting--and acted upon them--it was not enough. What generally starts as a just cause that most can see--equality--inevitably morphs into wretched elitism--affirmative action.)
By this point he will be too mentally stunted to even recognize that by destroying the free will of the righteous, he is cannibalizing his own, for one of the foundations of THE ONE INEXORABLE TRUTH is this: what starts with one group never ends with that group. He who seeks to deprive the righteous of free will for his own selfish gains shall inevitably be enslaved by those very same mandates.
Thus we see that a group that once dwelt in righteousness and peace begins to chip away at its own foundation. It is Satan's ultimate, gleeful, low-down double-cross: convince one man to obliterate the free will of another man, then enslave and cannibalize the man who aided and abetted you.
Two destructions for the price of one. And it all begins with one free man, one good man, who chooses to become one wicked man.
At this point, the remaining righteous-- still the majority-- will go to their Father and ask for direction in dealing with the growing group that is beginning to murmur and to harass those who believe in God and in His precept of "live and let live."
Reading through the scriptures, I find several steps that occur when dealing with the wicked who cannot and will not live and let live. The first step is that of limitation.
God will tell his people that these wicked children have the right to choose to do the wrong thing, and that none of His children has the right to force them to do anything, EVEN the right thing, for force was the plan put forth by Lucifer and rejected by all who dwell in this mortal realm. Instead His command would be for the righteous to limit their interaction with the wicked; not because the righteous couldn't handle it, but because the wicked's intentions and dealings with the righteous could not be trusted.(Hmmm...sounds a lot like those nations who have NEVER kept a single peace treaty, cease fire, truce, etc., while America and Israel have faithfully stood by theirs.)
So the righteous go back among those who were once their friends, watching carefully and praying as much for their fallen brethren as they do for themselves.
And it came to pass...
But it didn't take long--in any of the scriptures--for this first step to no longer be enough. The harassment of the righteous by the wicked would escalate as more were easily led to the side of fools, and the field begins to tilt to the other side. What started as tauntings become deliberate cruelty, attacks, lies, theft, defrauding and subjugation. These junior high antics are the only weapons the wicked have, for with each step they take away from the light and toward the darkness their levels of maturity and intelligence actually drop, until they have regressed to perpetual adolescence, delighting in cruelty, name-calling, forcing, and fighting.
And the righteous return to Father for help.
The next step the scriptures often repeat in this constant and vicious cycle is the "cut off" stage. This is the stage where things have become bad enough to warrant cutting all ties and dealings with the wicked but not yet a mortal danger. The righteous cut all business, merchant, political, association, and minglings with those who seek their destruction. They keep to themselves, buying and trading only with those who will allow them to do so in peace and doing nothing against an enemy who is now thirsting for their blood.
By this point in scripture, most of us can see what's coming, and if you're like me, you're always puzzled as to what bug crawled up the wicked's butts. The righteous are doing nothing to hurt them, interfere with their freedoms, provoke them, or stop their choice to be complete and utter assholes. They are simply existing, living, loving, defending and unlike the wicked, they are prospering.
For the wicked--since time began--existing IS the offense. Prospering just aggravates it. When you choose evil, it would seem, the ability to put two and two together hitches a ride with your rapidly exiting conscience. You are unable--and unwilling--to connect the actions of the righteous with their prosperous outcome, and seethe with jealousy and hatred for what the good have and the wicked want.
So now it's back to Father for help. The attacks are growing violent, constant, and too often life-threatening. Freedoms, possessions, and rights are being stripped with ravenous frequency from the righteous, every offense greatly amplified if it is committed by one of the righteous, but covered up, ignored, justified, or rapidly glossed over if the offender is one of the wicked, (often hidden under code words like "Oppressed minorities, apartheid, racism, sexism, or any cowardly words they can invent in order to call good evil or evil good")and all of this in spite of protest, reason, and even the law. At this point--throughout all history, both scripture and secular--a split occurs. The righteous are either run out of town by the wicked--now the majority--or choose to leave because staying means certain death, or even worse: slavery.
If they've listened to Father, the split comes as the next step: fleeing into the wilderness. By now the wicked are in full decadence and wretched consumption. They no longer have to be lured or eased into hell; they are now the proud owners of it. This step inevitably causes the loss of many righteous, who have grown at ease in Zion, and don't want to be bothered with sacrifice and difficulty. Unless they come to their senses and starting walking what they talk, they will inevitably be consumed by the wickedness they were too apathetic to flee.
Father will lead them to a safe place to build up a city fortress, for He knows what the righteous don't: this is merely buying them some time. The wicked WILL come.
Now keep in mind that these steps usually take place over many generations, even centuries. They have rarely occurred in a matter of a decade or two. And for those of you wondering why bother with all the steps when Father knows from the beginning what will happen, I remind you that what goes on here on earth is for our benefit, not Father's. WE are the ones who need to learn, NOT Father.
The moment of truth is now upon the righteous in the final step: Defending Zion and freedom. The one constant throughout history has been the showdown that must always happen so long as evil dwells among us. We have a choice to make then: risk death to defend the freedoms that God gave us but Satan seeks to steal, or choose to live under wretched slavery.
And here we are again, at that final step. Now if you ask anyone who has ever lived under Islam or communism--or Islammunism, given their Hitler/Stalin-esque Non-Aggression pact while they carve up the world between them--they will cry freedom. But it is a quirky thing that those who have had freedom and abundance have a tendency to choose "moderate slaver" or "slowly encroaching slavery" rather than risk pain, suffering, and losing their stuff.
Never once in history has any group unwilling to defend itself survived. Not once. Diplomacy, negotiations, reason, decency--all of these have only stalled the inevitable, and are useless against an indecent enemy. The War in Heaven--fought between those who wished to have the free will to choose and those who demanded you do it their way--has followed us to earth, and will always be here until the father of that war--Satan--is bound. Until then, we must re-defeat him and his followers over and over again, because he will never stop on his own, and neither will those who subscribe to the Satanic belief of force over free will. Every war in history has been between these two forces, and every war in the future will be the same until force is fully rejected by us.
And the One Inexorable Truth that all of these steps lead to? The answer is simple, and explains why we must keep fighting the same war over and over again.
Islammunists/hippies would have you believe that the righteous, Judeo/Christian groups are an oppressive bunch who impose their will upon those who choose not to believe. While there have certainly been individuals and groups in our history who have done so, the steps outlined here prove that to be completely wrong. You see, it isn't good that will not live with evil. Good can tolerate evil, and always has. It is evil that will never, ever, ever tolerate good. There could be one righteous man in a far off corner of the world, living on his own and interacting with no one and evil would seek him out with ravenous carnage.
That is why war with evil is inevitable; there is no permanent appeasement for those who never intend to let you live. And that is why any treaties signed by a follower of Islammunism can't be trusted. No matter how strictly you adhere to your side of the bargain, they will break theirs the minute they think they can hurt you, then hurry and promise to do it for real this time, no crossies count.
You need only look at restored Israel--who has kept every word it has ever given--and the Islamic stain they must live with. Out of every promise, treaty, truce, cease fire, etc., the phony-baloney Palestinians have ever signed, they have yet to keep one. This what God meant when he spoke, "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." It has always fascinated me that Father put both--deceiving and being deceived--on the same level. Surely one is the sinner and the other the victim, right?
Wrong. When God has given you signs of the type of people to be wary of, when those people show over and over again their true intent while we play "Let's pretend they're not lying" when the only evidence you have is lies, broken promises, and murderous intent, sounds to me like maybe the victim's guilt is even higher. To be deliberately deceived is indeed wicked because we know better, and are too lukewarm to do things right.
No matter how many Oslos, Road Maps, or Annapolis's you have, so long as the House of Israel breathes, evil will come, for good doesn't follow evil. Evil will always, inevitably, follow good. So this whole dealing with Abbas instead of Hamas is like sending billions of weapons to Himmler to defeat Hitler: delaying the inevitable and helping them kill us. Israel could abandon all land on earth and take to the sea on giant pontoons and Islammunists would STILL seek them out and wipe them from the earth.
This has never been about land; it has been about life, and the fact that the House of Israel has one. If we don't defeat evil and keep it from us you can be sure that it will defeat us.
Just look at history; one very wicked man is all it has ever taken. And right now, we are overrun with many very wicked men.
Keep the faith, bros, in all things courage, and no substitute for VICTORY.
