When I was a young child back in the 1950’s-60’s I was raised in a family who believed in the Democratic Party. My parents were folks who believed in the reality that working people if they wanted to be able to financially survive needed Union protections. They also believed that the Republican Party was solely for the wealthiest people and was clearly anti working people. They also believed that the Democratic Party, because they cared about the poor was the party that the Churches backed. I never remember going to a Church that had a Republican Minister simply because the Republicans agenda’s were in direct contrast to the love, kindness and sharing teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court with their ruling on ‘Roe v Wade’ abortion ruling seemed to change the political map within the Churches. The teachings of abortion within the Scriptures are definitely anti-abortion yet almost all of the Churches and their Ministers remained as Democrats because they could not transcend over to a Party (Republicans) who were against basically all of the teachings of Jesus about how we should all treat each other. Yet, my question is how can a Church, a Minister, or their congregation openly or even behind closed doors back abortion? How can you say you or a Minister (that word means, Servant) say you are a Christian (follower of Christ) and at the same time back abortion?
What I do not understand is why the people who say they are Christians have not created a third National Party! The Democratic Party strongly backs a woman’s “right” to have an abortion at any time during a pregnancy. The Republican Party wants to end all abortions seeing them as the murdering of over a million children here in the U.S. each year. So, Republicans have garnered the “conservative Christians” into their camp because of the abortion issue. This is even though the Republican Party Platform is still strongly anti-working people, and anti the people having the right to work under Union protections.
I am a registered voting Independent because I see both Parties as crooked and pure evil. When the people go to the polls this November we just like every other election know that either a Republican or a Democrat is going to win at every level of Government. To vote for anyone else is nothing more than a protest vote that has no effect on who actually wins the elections, it will be a Democrat or a Republican. So, just like this November we Voters are having to consider which one of the two Evils win. Especially concerning the Presidency this year, which Evil is less Evil, that is what we have to look forward to. For either of these political parties to claim to be close or closer to God is total BS. Evil is still Evil, neither of these Political Parties have the endorsement of the Scriptures of God, so how can anyone who calls themselves a Christian or Jewish endorse or support either of these Demonic structures? I used the title of them being anti-Christ, I am not saying that either Parties leadership is ‘the anti-Christ’. What I am saying is that both Parties policies are in direct indifference to the teachings of God’s Holy Scriptures, thus both Parties are Anti-Christ!
Texas Senator Ted Cruz has first gone around the state of Texas and now the whole country lying to all he meets by saying he is a practicing Christian when he is by no means any such a thing. Lying, yes lying, plus add in other qualities like a fraud, and a thief. O, and let us not forget that as Mr. Trump said about Mr. Cruz when he refereed to him as a “very nasty person”, and Mr. Trump ought to know that quality very well, he has made a lifetime of being nasty to people for the purpose of his own personal gain. The Republican establishment chastised Mr. Trump for those comments even though they all know that he spoke truthfully about Mr. Cruz. The very recently retired Republican House Speaker (John Boehner) shortly before he retired last year called Mr. Cruz “the biggest ass-hole in the Congress”. But then again when another now former Republican Senator Mr. Bob Dole was their Presidential Candidate they keep quiet that within the Senate he was known as ‘Mr. Nasty’. How does a political party whom claims the highroad claiming to be the most Christian Party put forth and then back people whom they know are very hate-filled people?
Just like ‘we the people’ have learned that Hillary Clinton is an habitual liar and that there is no way to trust anything that comes out of her mouth, Ted Cruz is proving to be the same. Mr. Cruz ran his Texas Senate campaign as him being this staunch conservative Christian yet it has been proven that he is a liar to the core of his being. He told all the people of Texas how he was the outsider whom was not beholding to the Wall-Street Bankers, that he was a poor man whom had to mortgage all they had to come up with the money to fund his Senate campaign, liar! He received a little over one million dollars from two Wall-Street bank, the biggest was for $700,000.00 from the very bank that his wife worked at. You did hear that correctly. Then by law and by Senate rules when he was elected to the Senate he had to tell them all of the loans that he had (because the people have a right to know whom they/he is beholding too) there too, he lied. He didn’t mention those loans from the Wall-Street Banks because it would have shown the people of the great state of Texas that he was a liar and a fraud. Now in the first political pony show that was held in Iowa yesterday his personal staffers were calling up other people’s staffers telling them that his Christian opponent Dr. Ben Carson had suspended his campaign when he had done no such a thing. Cruz is the only candidate that pulled this dirty trick. It is said that all is fair in war and politics but this itself is a lie if you are really a Christian. Cruz knew very well that if Dr. Carson did drop out of the race that he (being he claims to be such a Christian) would pick up a lot of Dr. Carson’s Christian voters, thus helping himself and hurting a person whom is an actual Christian.
If a person is truly a Christian we are supposed to try our very best to walk after the heart of God, not be an habitual liar, fraud, thief, law-breaker, and a hypocrite. There is no way that a person whom is a Christian (we must try our best to walk that walk of light everyday of our lives) would ever be considered by those whom know him well as the “biggest ass-hole” in the Congress. Mr. Cruz has proven himself to be little more than an apostasy, at best. At worst, he is one of the Anti-Christs trying to fill the seat of the current Demon that sits in the Oval-Office right now. We the people deserve a lot better human being in the White House than this fraud and habitual liar. Is it possible for Mr. Cruz, Mr. Obama, or Mrs. Clinton to ever speak the truth to the people? They seem to be three of the worse overall quality people who the U.S. Senate has had to offer up as Presidential candidates since, well, Bob Dole. I don’t mind these folks running for public office because we are all suppose to have that right here in America. My issue with some of these evil characters is when they are claiming to be a Christian when it is very plain that they are capable of anything, no matter how dirty or illegal or unethical they perform their lives. People like Mr. Cruz will say or do anything it takes to win, and friends that is not walking after the heart of Jesus. I believe that Mr. Cruz is a person whom will just make our country even more gridlocked because he refuses any comprise on anything. I am a conservative Christian person but I am also a realist, if our country, our people, are to prosper and if the Nation is to be strong we can not have a person in the Oval Office whom will never negotiate or compromise in the effort to get our Nation back on our feet again. This will not with such an habitual liar as Mr. Cruz in the Captains Chair.
The Sign Of The ‘Anti-Christ’ And The ‘Mark Of The Devil’ Are Two Different Things
From my childhood on I have come across many people who thought/believe that the sign of the ‘Anti-Christ’ and the ‘Mark of the Devil’ are one and the same. There is no Biblical reasoning for this error in thought except for the fact that most Christians seldom open or study the Scriptures to find out what is so, or what is not so. I am over 60 yrs old now and I have studied the Scriptures since I was ten and I have learned many things about truth in this time. I am not here to argue with anyone, I am simply going to state to you what I believe to be God’s truths concerning this matter, you can believe what you wish, I am simply trying to do my duty as a servant of God. I am a person who enjoys reading historical and religious documents whether they be from secular Christian authors or writers with a narrow view-point concerning religion and world events caused by religion.
First let us look at ‘the mark of the Devil’ that Scripture speaks of. First we must understand that every government on earth is not ‘holy’, they are man-made and man by nature is carnal, not Godly. Scripture speaks of the ‘mark of the Devil’ being put into the head or the right hand of the people. What do you think this mark could be? Obviously it will be something that a person can’t just take off of themselves. What could this ‘thing’ be ? How could people be ‘marked’? Two thousand years ago I guess people could have been branded with an iron or even with a blade but in these times that we are living in technology has made ‘marking’ much simpler. It is my belief that this ‘mark’ will simply be a computer chip put in underneath the skin in the underside of the wrist (in Roman days the wrist was considered to be part of the hand). Most likely only a few people like government agents and military officers would have such chips put into the brain. You may say that this is a bunch of bull-s–t that no one would ever let the government do that to them, all that I can say to that is, really? When the government decides that they can not secure the money because of forgeries including State sponsored forgers like Iran and China? We all should know by now that our personal credit cards and the banks they are off of cannot protect our accounts just as the places we shop at cannot protect their own systems from hackers they cannot protect our information. Also it is obvious that the governments cannot protect our own borders as to whom is coming into the country so that employers can know who it is safe to hire or whom is not. You may say that you would never let that happen to you but when the government stops using and stops printing cash so that you must have the chip to be able to work, buy any food, pay your rent or mortgage or to even put gas in your car then you are going to have a problem. You will lose your home, car, job, and the ability to pay utilities or to ever buy something to eat, will you change your mind when you are living in a cardboard box under a bridge? If you can’t pay your taxes without the chip the government will simply take everything you ever thought you owned. Here in America I think that the identification for each person will be their social security number, but they could obviously come up with another number system to identify each of us with. Why would I call this event the mark of the Devil, if the Devil is the owner of the government…?
Now about ‘the sign of the anti-Christ’. In Scripture the sign of God is the number three as in the Trinity and the sign of man is the number six as in the sixth day God created man. The sign of the anti-Christ is noted as 666, this is not the mark of the Devil, it is the sign of three very powerful people who will be possessed by Demons who answer only to their boss Satan. These three people will come from different parts of the globe, one from the east (China) one from the center (above, north of the Holy Lands) meaning the European Union area and the third will come from the Americas to the west. These three will come after they uproot the ten nations/horns and consolidate their power into a tighter noose around the world’s population. After they have almost all power on the Earth ‘The’ anti-Christ which is Satan himself will rise up from below (the Temple Mount) and usurp the power of his three generals into his own lap. By this time almost all people who have refused the chip will either be dead or in hiding trying to exist each day hiding in caves and forests. Most all of the people who will flat-out refuse the chip will be devout Christians. Do you remember the play book of the U.S. government with the Indian people? Take their guns so they can’t defend themselves or feed themselves, put them into a small area then send in the troops and wipe them out. Scripture tells us that all of the Saints/believers would be wiped out if not for the second advent of Christ returning and sending Satan back to Hell. I believe that almost all of the American people including those who call themselves devout Christians will give in to getting the chips ‘mark of the Devil’ simply because they love having a roof over their heads and food to eat more than they love the Word of God (Jesus). If we love this life and the treasures of it more than God then we will lose our own Souls suffering ‘the second death’, forever separation from God when we are sent to live forever in the fires of Hell.
