"BLISSFUL IGNORANCE" IN AMERICA; ADD TO THAT COWARDICE, INDIFFERENCE, ABORTION, PERVERSION!

the title of this article clearly states how most people prefer to live
their lives. Ignorance, like sin, is bliss for a season. I guess there
is some pleasure in living in this manner for a brief period (Heb. 11:25).
is a tranquility in ignorance, but servitude is its partner."
are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free."
is of a peculiar nature; once dispelled, it is impossible to reestablish.
It is not originally a thing of itself, but the absence of knowledge;
and though man be kept ignorant, he cannot be made ignorant."
a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it
expects what never was and never will be." -Thomas Jefferson
people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (ignorance) because thou hast
rejected knowledge (willful ignorance), I will also reject thee, that
thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy
God, I will also forget thy children." -Hosea 4:6
wanted to let you know that I've had all the "damned" lies I
can handle without standing up, speaking out and exposing to all of us
what fools we have become! (Ps. 14:1) A moral and virtuous people, filled
with Godly wisdom, will not and cannot blindly pledge "allegiance"
to any man made government that denies the sovereign authority of the God
of all creation. A nation ruled by corrupt men who ignore the eternal
and immutable laws of Holy God, that demands obedience, or cause the people
to err through immorality, depravity, decadence and debauchery cannot
be obeyed by a righteous people! (Is. 9:16) Especially so for a nation
that once knew the providence and protection of a righteous God. (Ps.
9:17) A nation that consisted mostly of a people who understood and realized
that God alone must have preeminence in all things whatsoever in His creation.
These people fled to an unsettled land to escape both a political and
ecclesiastical tyranny under a corrupt king and a cult called Roman Catholicism.
Both separately and together desired to rule the world!
Godly people understood the authority given them by Christ Himself. (Mt.
28:18-20) They were determined to render to God alone their allegiance.
They were determined to set up a "civil authority" that had
but one purpose and that was to see that God's laws alone were to be followed.
Evil men were punished, the righteous were blessed with liberty (Rom.
13:1-6). They were willing to dedicate their lives to fulfill this "Holy"
calling. These people who greatly desired to be righteous, established
the first and truly "Christian" nation in history, that stood
for approximately 200 years, from the early to late 1600's to 1789. Yep,
that's right! 1789! Keep reading!
who have a sincere desire for truth can find the truth, but they will
not find it in the heathen, state run, "public fool" system
we have all attended and still send our children to today! You will find
very little of it in today's 501c3 whorehouse we call the church! You
can, if you are not too lazy to seek and find it in God's preserved Word,
the 1611 KJV Bible, using a Strong's Concordance and a copy of the original
1828 Noah Webster's dictionary. You can find actual copies of our nation's
first colonial covenants (constitutions) to read what our true founding
fathers wrote about what our nation was formed for, but that is your call
may want to stop reading now! If you read any further, you will have your
ignorance dispelled beyond repair. Again, the choice is yours. You could
lose your ignorant bliss and blind patriotism!
will look at the original charters you will find that the colonists swore
allegiance to Christ alone, for obedience and to further His Kingdom.
To a king or civil authority, only a "limited" submission was
given! To a self appointed "divine" leader who called himself
Christ's vicar on earth, no authority or submission was given. This man
they knew is and was an antichrist. The colonists were so concerned about
this issue, that many of their charters stated that only Protestant Christians
could hold any office of authority.
back on the original topic of Blissful Ignorance. How did such a once
Godly, intelligent and industrious people become so "damned"
ignorant to all things righteous and good? Without going into great detail,
let me list just three points that should help us understand a major reason
as to what happened.
one. Our true founders knew that in the original covenant God penned for
men, the Holy Bible, that in the first four words He established His preeminence
and sovereign authority over His creation was established and settled
forever. The four words are, "In the beginning God.."
two. When the first founding fathers were about to come ashore and establish
the first truly Christian colony, they realized that they needed a covenant
written for all to sign and agree to, for righteous order of their new
society. It was called the Mayflower Compact because it was written and
signed while still on board the Mayflower. It began simply with four words
that set the standard for all of their society to agree to live by. "In
the name of God." In so stating, they recognized God's sovereignty
and rule of His law over all Creation.
three. The beginning of the end of God's recognized sovereign authority
over His creation. The first huge step to a dominant humanistic view in
American society. As a matter of fact, this new covenant, compact, charter
on constitutions was so inadequate that Patrick Henry would have nothing
to do with it and Ben Franklin stated that it was "doomed to despotism".
Why? What could possibly be so out of place? We simply don't have time
to go into detail on these issues now, but here is the problem and destruction
of America's, once Godly, founding and fountain of blessings in three
words! "We the people"! From the first, the founders recognized
"beginning by, for and in God, in the name of God", to "we
the people" who became their own god. No longer would God's laws
alone be recognized! Now man, with and by his own understanding, could
decide right and wrong. From Godliness to humanism in a manner of a few
years. No, it didn't dissolve overnight, but as the people became more
and more ignorant of God's sovereign right to govern in the affairs of
men, they became their own gods, determined to govern themselves with
their own ignorant devices. So here we are at 1789, 128 years later! Let's
examine the results of recognizing "mans rights", (an oxymoron
- more on that later ), without God's righteous laws!
Countless ungodly wars of federal powers to conquer and control their
own people. Huge wars to further the "empires" power and control
all over the world that was allowed and tolerated by an ignorant people!
A forced state controlled educational system to destroy any recognition
of God and His laws in society, to dumb down in order to further produce
and control an ignorant people. 1963 was a very good year for this! And
for the record, Thomas Jefferson did not produce a writing to keep God
out of state affairs, but to keep the state out of church affairs! Separation
of church and state is not in any of our nations documents, but it is
1954. Lyndon B. Johnson used his influence as a US senator to put the
churches in America under control of the IRS. With the 501c3 clause giving
the church the "privilege" of being tax exempt when they were
already tax immune! An ignorant people claiming to understand God's Word
were thrilled to accept this. Ah! Wonderful ignorant blissfulness!
1974. A woman's "constitutional right" to murder her own child
is given viability by a non authority, the US supreme court! This fruit
of an ungodly nation has resulted in the torture and death of sixty million,
60,000,000, innocent children! There is no forgiveness for a nation that
ignorance or cowardliness allows this atrocity! II Kings 24:4 This is
one example of how we the people, as written in our 1789 document called
the Constitution, have used mans so called rights to promote and protect
2015. Again, the same non authority stated that sexual predators, perverts
and deviants not only have the "right" to exist in our society,
but they have the "constitutional right" to marry! Again, an
ignorant, cowardly and mostly indifferent society said or did very little.
are a few of the bigger results and curses of an ignorant people. There
are many, many more. They grow in severity as the people become more ignorant,
cowardly and indifferent. Some of the lesser that an ignorant people ignored
were income taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, licenses, property seizures,
child kidnapping by CPS tyrants and on and on we could go!
of the above have been established under supposed constitutional, civil
or human rights! As I have said before, we have become a people that are
straining at gnats and swallowing camels. Mt. 23:24 We protest taxation,
gun control, government land grabs, police state tactics and the new world
order, yet continue to allow the sacrifices of 4000 babies a day. We tolerate
sexual deviants teaching our children in the public hell holes we call
schools. God cannot and will not hear our prayers! II Chron. 7:14 does
not fit us today!
me make one thing perfectly clear! Men do not have rights given to him
by anyone, including a Sovereign God! Man was given commandments and duties
by a Holy, righteous, totally and completely sovereign potentate King
and Magistrate! Mans duties and allegiance is to God and Him alone! If
we fulfill His duties, then He grants us blessings! NOT rights! For example,
man has the blessing of keeping and bearing arms to fulfill God's command
and duty to protect himself, family and nation! Numbers chapter one, Neh.
4:14, Luke 22:36 and I Tim. 5:8 are a few scriptures to prove this point.
Because, through ignorance of God's Word, we have not fulfilled our duty
to God to protect the innocent, we are facing the loss of the blessing,
not right, to keep and bear arms. Folks, I could go further, but enough
has been said on this issue.
through ignorance and complacency become complicit in the sins of this
once Godly nation. I, for one, will never pledge an allegiance to a symbol
of a nation that has committed all of the abominations listed above! I
am a veteran! I served before I knew the wickedness of this nation! Our
young people haven't died in a Godly war since the Revolution! All the
rest were forced upon us from enemies, both foreign and domestic, who
hunger for wealth, power and control. Our young people have been used
as cannon fodder to further an American empire, not defending our freedoms!
ignorant we are! Free to murder, pervert and destroy our children's future!
To allow our former pervert and chief in the white house, named Barry
Soetoro, alias Barack Hussein Obama, to bestow America's highest award
on a sexual deviant lesbian named Ellen Degeneres!
Not me! I am angry at what I see! I will no longer remain silent or soften
my words to endeavor for unity! God's Word is the only real truth on all
manners! All of our so called founding documents are but dung without
God's authority recognized as the supreme and final word in all manners
have a new president, Donald J. Trump, who pledges to "make America
great again." Let us be hopeful and pray that this will happen, but
while we tolerate the slaughter of 1,460,000 babies a year and the perversion
of sodomy and lesbianism, God will not heal this land. Let's be clear
on this one indisputable fact!! No nation will be blessed or prosper without
obedience to God's moral laws!! (Ps. 33:12)
must decide for yourselves who you will serve. You have been told the
truth in this article! Joshua 24:15 is my decision. As our ministry name
states, this is your "Call to Decision". Let us no longer fulfill
Christ's warning in Matt. 15:14.
