All scripture is profitable for us, and the parts that I don’t like are the parts I should pay most attention to. For the West is apostate:it has been so since the generation of 1968 rejected the church, the nation and the family for a utopian libertarian socialism what was as incoherent as itwas a lie.
We aernowlivingwith the consequences of this. We have allowed the enemy in, and he is starting th evictory parade.Adam saw this with South Africa: so have I.
The first real Western refugees, those attempting to escape their own countries, were the Rhodesians and South Africans in the period from 1980 to the present day. Their nations had been destroyed by Marxists who colluded with black populations to enforce the takeovers. For the whites who could afford to leave, there was no other option. Most went to Australia, New Zealand and the USA. The United Kingdom was not so accommodating, but they were happy to take in untold numbers from the sub-continent in the same time period.
There is a cold war in the west that has been in progress for sixty years. A war which is beginning to hot up. The majority will hold on because things are not so bad just yet. Many will move to other parts of the same countries, the isolated areas away from the big cities. They will hope that they will not be bothered as long as they do not bother anyone else.
They will be bothered. Their skin color and their success will mark them.
This is the consequence of losing a cold civil war. There is worse; you can lose a hot war. Defeat is disaaster. Jeremiah gives us a destription of this: it is there so we do nto follow the errors of Israel to that fate.
2 How the Lord in his anger
has set the daughter of Zion under a cloud!
He has cast down from heaven to earth
the splendor of Israel;
he has not remembered his footstool
in the day of his anger.
2 The Lord has swallowed up without mercy
all the habitations of Jacob;
in his wrath he has broken down
the strongholds of the daughter of Judah;
he has brought down to the ground in dishonor
the kingdom and its rulers.
3 He has cut down in fierce anger
all the might of Israel;
he has withdrawn from them his right hand
in the face of the enemy;
he has burned like a flaming fire in Jacob,
consuming all around.
4 He has bent his bow like an enemy,
with his right hand set like a foe;
and he has killed all who were delightful in our eyes
in the tent of the daughter of Zion;
he has poured out his fury like fire.
5 The Lord has become like an enemy;
he has swallowed up Israel;
he has swallowed up all its palaces;
he has laid in ruins its strongholds,
and he has multiplied in the daughter of Judah
mourning and lamentation.
6 He has laid waste his booth like a garden,
laid in ruins his meeting place;
the Lord has made Zion forget
festival and Sabbath,
and in his fierce indignation has spurned king and priest.
7 The Lord has scorned his altar,
disowned his sanctuary;
he has delivered into the hand of the enemy
the walls of her palaces;
they raised a clamor in the house of the Lord
as on the day of festival.
8 The Lord determined to lay in ruins
the wall of the daughter of Zion;
he stretched out the measuring line;
he did not restrain his hand from destroying;
he caused rampart and wall to lament;
they languished together.
9 Her gates have sunk into the ground;
he has ruined and broken her bars;
her king and princes are among the nations;
the law is no more,
and her prophets find
no vision from the Lord.
10 The elders of the daughter of Zion
sit on the ground in silence;
they have thrown dust on their heads
and put on sackcloth;
the young women of Jerusalem
have bowed their heads to the ground.
11 My eyes are spent with weeping;
my stomach churns;
my bile is poured out to the ground
because of the destruction of the daughter of my people,
because infants and babies faint
in the streets of the city.
12 They cry to their mothers,
“Where is bread and wine?”
as they faint like a wounded man
in the streets of the city,
as their life is poured out
on their mothers’ bosom.
The west has done worse than Israel, for they had Moses and the law, but we were alliged to Christ, who is the fulfilment of the law. We have rejected God himself.
And we can only now pray for mercy. The good we do should be for the church. Not the state or society, but for the brotherhood.
For the state will reliably much it up. Theyy are not that competent They don’t know the people they say they are helping. Pastors and Priests do.
8 We want you to know, brothers, about the grace of God that has been given among the churches of Macedonia, 2 for in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part. 3 For they gave according to their means, as I can testify, and beyond their means, of their own accord, 4 begging us earnestly for the favor of taking part in the relief of the saints— 5 and this, not as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then by the will of God to us. 6 Accordingly, we urged Titus that as he had started, so he should complete among you this act of grace. 7 But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you—see that you excel in this act of grace also.
I know that we have a socail welfoare system. For the moment: the people running it are corrupt and lie even to themselves.. But we fill our lives to the point where we cannot give. We cannot see what is important. We must be distracted. And we cannot comprehebdn that the Early Church gave to each other so when there was war and famine the brothers and the sisters in the church were provided for.
We are in the process of renovating the house we downsized into. This has led to us giving a lot of things away. Last night the books came out. It was something akin to christmas, as I could again read poetry (you can’t find a lot of things on the internet)
The women of Jerusalem had allowd themselves to be akin to the women of Sodom: to consider their own needs above those of Justice (and yes, I’m referring to another prophet). They act as a warning.
Your posessions will not save you. Christ will. And in Chirst, we can be generous and care for each other.
The state, however, will not. They would ban any warning, for they want us to cover our vices in fear. But we were not called by the blood of Christ and the Hopy Spirit to fear, but to Love.
