Mene, Mene, Tekel and Parsin
America since 1814 and all throughout this nation’s history the national anthem of the United States has been sung as “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.” But a bizarre morphing has been occurring since the 1950’s when the United States was the richest and most envied country in the world. The United States was also unrivaled as the world's manufacturing powerhouse. Americans proudly regarded their country as a model and many people around the world agreed. More than ever before in our history, the American people sense that something is very wrong in our country… America is morphing into a mysterious creature and has become the land of the special interest and home of the double standards!
Let us take a close look at these changes. For example if we lie to the Congress, it’s a felony but if congress lies to us it’s considered politics. If we dislike a black person, we are considered a racist, but if a black person dislikes white a person, it’s their 1st Amendment rights. The U.S. Government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims. In our public schools you can teach that homosexuality is ok, but you are allowed to use the word God in class. You can kill an unborn child, but it’s wrong to execute a mass murderer. We are not allowed to burn books in America, but we now rewrite them. We have removed the Communist and Socialist threat just by renaming them as Progressives. If you protest against President Obama’s policies you are a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag it was your 1st Amendment right.
You can have soft-core pornography on television and hardcore pornography on the internet, but you cannot put a nativity scene in a public park during the Christmas Holidays. We have eliminated all criminals in America and they are now classified as sick people. We can use a human fetus for medical research and food additives, but it’s wrong to use an animal.
We take the hard earned money from those who work for it and give it to those who do not want to work. We all support the Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideologies. We still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct. Parenting has been replaced by Ritalin and video games. The land of opportunity is now the land of handouts. And how do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who’s at fault and then threatens them passing laws raising our taxes, then tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign.
What has happened to the land of the free and home of the brave? Many today are so busy trying to make ends meet or dunk with success that this change has occurred unnoticed. Confusion seems to be a more interesting terminology to what is happening to this once great nation. I find it interesting that Babylon means confusion taken from the Biblical account when God confused the language of the people when attempting to erect a tower to reach the Heavens in Genesis 3:11. This confusion has now struck this once God fearing nation in a sense that we are no longer able to determine right from wrong.
TALL & GORGEOUS TITLE
When Alexander Solzhenitsyn the Great Russian historian was asked on BBC television over two decades ago why Russia had lost its freedom under Communism… he said, "It was because we forgot God." We as a people have forgotten God and our dependence on Him. We have become fat, dumb, lazy, complacent, and apathetic and have lost our ability to even tell the difference between good and evil or do most Americans including the Christian Church in America worship the gods of materialism, affluence, pleasure, entertainment, and sexuality in spite of the fact that the God of the Bible has said: “Thou shall have no other gods before Me.” Exodus 20:3
Throughout history, when countries have become to our present state of decline, they have collapsed or either been swept away by foreign invaders or sunken into totalitarian dictatorships as Russia did in 1917 and Germany did in 1933. In many instances as with Israel in the day of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and in A.D. 70, when the Roman Legions under Titus destroyed Jerusalem the Lord has judged those nations. As the Lord said in His handwriting on the wall, the night that Belshazzar and his Babylonian kingdom fell to the Medes: “MENE: God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. TEKEL: Thou art weighted in the balance, and art found wanting. PERES: Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.”
God in the past has removed His hand of protection from such countries and turned them over to a spirit of delusion or blindness, and allowed their greatness to be destroyed. This can be seen in ancient Greece, Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Israel, Rome, and in modern day Russia, Germany, China, South Africa, and as I believe in the not too distant future in America. The United States of America is becoming more and more like Nazi Germany every single day. During the 1920s and early 1930s the German’s Weimar Republic was rampant with inflation and debt. There was a moral and spiritual decline on a scale unprecedented in German history. America since 1960 has been experiencing quite the same thing. The same kind of movement of rejecting Christianity, only to idolize the secular state ideologies such as same sex marriages and the most recent same sex restrooms are clear indicators of what scholars have called our current “political religions.” Socialism was one political religion, which quite literally understood itself as transferring the worship from God to humanity itself or more exactly, to the socialist state that promised to give citizens in this life what Christianity had promised only in a this worldly utopia. Socialism was therefore, essentially religious in its original conception and it became the historical foundation of liberal progressivism in the United States.
History has proven that a country in a moral, cultural, spiritual collapse such as the Roman Empire was in its eleventh hour or as Germany was in the 1920s and early 1930s right before it was about to lose its freedom. These nations no longer had the will or internal strength to resist tyranny as America today. My fear is that a nation that has lost its moral compass and Christian roots is being slowly conditioned to accept a Super Leader a Übermensch, as the German people recieved the religious aspects of Nazim under the German philosophers: Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche.
The Apostle John’s vision on the island of Patmos was given a vision of a woman riding a beast found in the Book of Revelation chapter 17 which I find intriguing to see a woman running for President of the United States and leader of the free world who adheres to and promotes a socialist agenda… a person whose past history is filled with mysterious deaths and political treason!
During the summer of 1997 while researching his book, “Cover Up: The Art and Science of Political Deception.” David M. Bresnahan broke the story known around the Internet as “the Body Count,” a collection of names of people associated with Clinton administration scandals who died mysterious and often violent deaths, which the media willingly ignored and avoided to publicly address. Only a few Christian and Non-Christian organizations made an attempted to expose this cover up and were immediately harassed by the Clintons IRS Gestapo!
The Word of God can be interpretation allegorically or literally the key is when to determine the distinction between the two. Allegorical interpretation method does not interpret Scripture; it spiritualizes words, phrases, and concepts. There is no concrete attachment to the context, the setting and the background of a text. Literal interpretation the meaning is attached to the text and not the imaginations of man.
What I also find fascinating is that the modern Kurdish people were known in ancient, Biblical times as the Medes. Here is where things get interesting… the overnight sensation of popular the reality TV family the Kardashian’s are from the Kurdistan region of Armenia between Turkey, Iran and Iraq. The Radical jihadist forces of the “Islamic State of Iraq & al-Sham” (ISIS) who is on the move terrorizing the world leaving a trail of bloodshed and carnage in their wake are also from that region!
With the current state of the Church combined with the way our nation has declined and the prophetic implications of the Kurds, known as the Medes. Biblical prophecy indicates that we are heading extremely closer to the End Times and closer to the second coming of Jesus Christ… will God allow the Medes to gain power? “MENE: God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. TEKEL: Thou art weighted in the balance, and art found wanting. PERES: Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.” (Daniel 5:26-28)
I can hear the Angel telling the Church today as he told the church in Sardis to: “Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God.” (Rev 3:2)
This wakeup call should ring loud in our ears as we have already seen many laws in our country that have been passed that restrict our freedom as Christians. We are losing our religious freedom and we're losing it a little bit each day and the Church is fast asleep in the light… God help us all!
