I was Afraid

Im overlooking the success of this blog. Im thinking of the people Ive spoken with over the years and things Ive written… To be honest, I held back, and I’m still holding back.

I’ll tell you why.

I was dating someone very controlling when I started this blog… Have you ever felt like a prisioner in your own home? Watching youre own online activity, walking on eggshells around them in fear of starting a fight only for one to start anyway? YET all of that fighting made you, somehow fall in love with that person again and again every single day? Have you ever had your own family turned against you because of the person youre supposed to trust most? Have you ever had youre best friends turned away and it broke youre heart to do it yourself? Have you ever had even youre co-workers turned against you? Have you ever watched time go by and you know what you need to do but you dont from fear?

Do you know what hell looks like?

For 7 years I lived in hell, in fact I was a slave to it!

I was afraid to leave the house for a time. I was afraid to talk to anyone. I was afraid to like a post on facebook. I was afraid to get the job I wanted. I was afraid to do almost anything. and yet I did some of it anyway despite my fear, and dealt with the consequences later. I regret so much now that I held back and the only thing I fear is holding back.

Yet I realize I am still a slave even 3 years after its over.

I make this promise now to you my readers, God above, and myself. I will no longer ever be afraid! Im tearing those chains off right here and now. And if that person is reading this, I use to send you songs everyday to proffess my feelings… Today I got a new one for you, this is it word for word:

My Western Express Experience – Be a Fish in the Stream

This week I’ve once again joined the exciting industry of truck driving with Weastern Express. I would like to write out the journey and reflect on my experience this 1st week of orientation.

For those who don’t know I should probably begin with a brief bio about myself so that you know who I am and where my background/perspective is coming from. I’m from Buffalo, Ny – Ive driven truck for a total of 1.5 years. First with Werner then a regional company called Northeast Transport. Before truck driving I have been a bartender at various places including Germany at a beer garden in Munich. Also I have a 7 year long career as a finacial advisor for a local firm that manged retirement plans for New York state teachers. I have been pretty much everywhere already prior to truck driving. As a seasoned traveler, I am pretty well aquainted to a nomadic lifestyle (It’s almost the story of my entire life of a truth). In my travel experience, I’ve learned many skills that I’ve found actually useful in truck driving, which i felt helped me transition into the industry. I am not a white collar snot as some may think – but make no mistake I am a sharp in my own own investments. On the side I have my investments in several small game developers and local buisnesses around Buffalo, as well as my rental property. I built my empire from the ground up, and I refuse to live “pay check to paycheck”… Financial management is ingraved into my very soul – right next to Jesus Christ – and over the years I worked hard ro get where I am 😎. For the past 8 months or so I have been out of the trucking game, living on my investment income for personal reasons, and hating every wakeing moment of it. Its actually kind of weird for me to stay home – Without adventure, and exploration what is a life worth?

I absolutely love this industry and I’ve grown so much in it already – I hope to grow even further. I signed up for western express because they tend to have more routes in the south, also I would like to transfer to flatbed after winter. It was a company I was seriously considering in truck school though I went with Werner- I figured why not see what I missed out on. So there is a lot of reasons I came here… That all said let us begin with my journey here at Western Express.

Day 1; ‘The Bus Ride’:

I spoke to a recuiter on the phone and while Western express has a closer terminal to home in Allentown, PA – I requested to go to their Nashville, TN terminal instead. He told me thats not a problem at all, sent me a bus ticket and this is where I suppose I should begin my journey. (Feel free to scroll down to day 2)

At 7pm in Buffalo the Greyhound bus was loaded and headed to Cleveland. I was set to arrive in Nashvile by 9 am next morning… Knowing I wouldn’t get much sleep with transfers and bumpy buses I adjusted my sleep cycle to “night owl” before the bus ride. It was going to be a smooth ride of audio books and music. I figured I would stay up all day when I got to Nashville at the hotel to reset my sleep cycle. This isnt my first rodeo and that kinda planning is a skill not many possess. Over many of my travels I’ve learned how to be highly flexible about sleep, but always be prepared in advanced about it.

When I arrived in cleaveland my troubles began. The next bus was delayed 2 hours AND that ment I would miss the bus to Nashville!!! At that moment I knew this was going to be a whole can of things i dont wanna deal with… SO I ate a cheeseburger, sucked it up, and just prepared to trudge through the worse.

I got to cleaveland at 4 am and they gave me a new bus to Nashville… leaving at 11:30 arriving at 4pm… Thus a total delay by 7 hours 😡 I got to know some people on the bus in the terminal. None of us could sleep under the fluorescent lighting, also the floor was too dirty to even consider for a bum,  and we couldn’t leave as the bus station was in the only section of town surrounded by highways. In this prison I tried to lift spirits of these mixed people with sorded stories… Though myself was entering a ghostly state of mind running only on muscle memory.

When the next bus came I managed a short nap enroute to Nashville, which perked me up just enough to make it through the day. I can not in anyway say greyhounds customer service through this ordeal was admirable. They were pretty much consistently rude throughout the entire experience from Buffalo to Nashville…. AND Im pretty much just going to stick with airplanes or trains or boats from now on.

Anyway…

I get to the hotel at 5 pm and sure enough I have a room mate. He seemed like an ok guy, he was an older guy from Georgia – training for flatbedding. However, I cut our formalities short and told him I need to sleep… 6 pm I was out and done with for the day.

Any company you train with BTW, you are going to have a room mate in these hotels. If you are a new to trucking know this now and accept the fact – its not so bad tbh. Just be sure to bring headphones incase they snore 😉

DAY 2 ‘Orientation Begins’

I began my day with breakfast at the hotel. It was a cramped room of mix matched people, and cheap food but pretty good coffee. The bus came for the terminal and we huddled into a mass like passengers to Ellis Island….

When I got there it was a crowded unorganized chaos in a tight room. I felt they expected me to automatically know what I am supposed to do and how to do it… Come to find out we were not there to smoke, drink coffee, and chat with people. But thats what I did until lunch time was announced… (Who Knew right).

Apparently I was supposed to fill out forms and take a drug test. Which I ran through quickly during the ‘wonderful’ chicken sandwhich lunch they gave me… Day 2 was a day I was basically fighting with the crowd constantly. I fought with them to get on the bus, I fought to get off the bus, I fought to get coffee at the nearby pilot (truck stop), I fought to get a seat or even move in the room, I fought to get the lunch that I hated, I fought to get on a computer to fill out paperwork (which im gonna talk about in a moment)… This wasnt like werner’s orientation at all – it was a complete mess of people and nobody knew what they were doing packed like rats.

After lunch it was backing test and road test and a short class until 5 pm.

The road test is what I’d like to highlight. I was first to drive in our group of 3. The first thing I asked the lady was; “Shall I start with a pretrip”… professionally this is said what we should always do, but in my experience most testers dont really want to bother after you have your license. So I’ve found its just best to ask before you start so you dont upset your tester…. She of course insisted I didnt bother, she already did it earlier and everything was fine, according to her. She just wanted to get this over with and thats all very well. “Cool with me” I thought…. I thought wrong.

The minute the truck pulled out of the yard she got a call that the trailer lights are out… I stoped the truck, she went back to jiggle the wire and told me were set to go along with this whole speach about how unsafe it would have been to leave without marker lights during the day time…. [Detect subtle sarcasm].

We get down the road maybe just minutes in and sure enough the marker lights went out again. I pulled over we switched seats and she took over heading us back to the terminal… For a minute there I thought she set this up deliberately and I failed because I didnt pre trip… We came to a random lot, she turned the truck around a little too sharply and the airlines snapped right off… Thus our trailer breaks locked and we were on the side of the road waiting to be picked up…. (I was now especially worried she sat all this up because I didn’t pre trip). 😂

Lucky for me this wasnt a set up. A new truck came, while she stayed with the old. I took my test from there and passed without incident. We passed her 3 times, and on the third she had a western express mechanic on site. I just took it as they respond pretty slow to incidents considering shes right down the street, but maybe 30 mins isnt too bad…

IDK and id hate for this to sound like I am complaining, because I am not. I am just documenting my experience and these kinds of things could be telling about how this company operates. Welcome to Truck Life, the key in this game is always atleast try to stay positive and friendly or it will eat your soul…. BUT adventure and $$$ is why I signed up, with all that it entails 🤠

For those actually interested in the road test, all Im going to say is its nothing to stress about. I am more experienced, and perhaps its easy for me to say so. 1 of the guys was fresh out of school and though hes not really up to snuff as a driver yet, he did ok on it. Just dont hit anything or do something stupid and you will pass. Its an automatic truck even, so you dont even have to worry about grinding gears. I dont think any of the driving tests during orientation are going to disqualify you with this company. They’re just pretending to scale where you’re at as a driver. Several instructors there told me it really doesnt matter if you even do the tests. Which is cool I guess… pardon me if I sat out of the backing test and they didnt have time to take me anyway. I just watched all the eager rookie drivers compete for their turn to prove they have backing game and sipped coffee conversating.

(I’m too old to even pretend to care about things I’m not getting paid for, and otherwise have no other incentive to deal with)

The class was a standard lecture on the company. Im so and so, i worked here for 100 years and im the best “enter job description here”, Its a great company for xyz reason, theres this option and that, here is a list of the rules, heres a photo of our ceos… We took a short multiple choice test on common sense things…. And left.

I got back to the hotel, walked over to Jack in the Box. Hung out with my room mate untill we were tired. Called it a day.

The Fine Print

If you are a new truck driver honestly this company might be good for you, there is quite a bit of discipline to be found here. Further there is a lot of options and oppertunities available. However if your new, I know you want the ugly face truth too from someone who knows a thing or two. My own reserves began with something I signed in the paperwork…

$1 per mile fee for off the route travel.

No alcholic beverages whatsoever.

These are gonna be an issue for me haha. I am not an alcoholic, infact I only drink maybe once a month or more – but I am also a grown man. If I want to drink now and then I will, though certainly not while driving. My own time is my own time and none of the companies buisness… I am curious to see how they go about policing this policy, and yet being told I can never drink at all makes me want to even more then I normally would… I am a cowboy and rebel after all 😎.

The $1/mile off route charge policy is the big ticket red flag. If youre a rookie I will tell you right now that in itself is tempting for me to leave… They have a crappy GPS that i know already will put me through a lot of bs. Talking with some guys who are at the hotel thats been with a trainer, only confirmed what I already knew. Not to mention assigning me fuel stops means, I no longer have options between subway or chesters for dinner… Im stuck with whatever is at that assigned truck stop, in their quest to nickle and dime me on gas…. And frankly, thats just not cool… Though I will end up cooking my own food anyway.

Of course however Im thinking more about my paycheck then food… They have this policy, yet they themseleves do not “assign routes”. They just tell drivers to go by the qualcomm GPS, and that gps will change its route constantly while you are in route – or route you onto nonexistent roads – or it will put you on roads you actually shouldnt ever in no way shape or form drive a truck in… With that, you may understand why this policy is pretty ambigious to someone who knows better… I can only speculate whether I should use my Rand Mcnally or not. They go by practicle miles… which, leads me to thinking there is an invisible range of miles im allowed to go between point A to point B untill they start taking $$ from my check. I am not driving through cities I have no stops in. Im taking the beltway around every time. Im also not going through neighborhoods and back alleys… [I’ve already been traumatized by Qualcomm GPS, not about to repeat some things ive already been through with the thing again today]… If that becomes an issue with my paycheck I’m going back to Werner plain and simple. I actually like werner but i signed up just to try something different and maybe switch to flatbed later after winter. At the end of the day, my patience with my money and peoples bullshit is very thin.

DAY 3 – Coporate Indoctrination

The second day of orientation was everything I hate. Classes about things I already know about, followed by an obstacle course… Well, actually I was looking forward to the obstical course, untill I found out it was actually colder outside that day in Nashville then home in Buffalo….

The first class was all about the qualcomm… Honestly I wish werner had this class during orientation when I first started driving. I thought it was good for a rookie, but I know my way around it now – and I was completely bored for 2 hours. I dont want my experience with Qualcomm’s here to ruin it for a noobie… LEARN everything you can in this class, because really I wish I had it when I first started. Its not complicated but it will take some confussion out of your equation.

The second class was all about driver safety. The guy teaching this class boasts his status of “The Resident Asshole”, and really hes not from what I can tell – and infact I enjoyed his lecture. He shed a completely philosophical and almost poetic light on safe truck driving. (This is where the title of this article actually came from). Now here too, was a slew of things I already knew, but I did enjoy the fresh deliverance of the material.

Lunch time I skipped… Keep in mind this is a trucking company not a restraunt… I wasnt desperate enough for it. Soon enough the bus came to take us to the main terminal for the obstical course.

The obsticle course consisted of a huge crowd of people standing around waiting their turn to prove their stuff in 90 deg (c-side) backing, as well as a crazy course of turns driving forward… As I said it was cold, and I packed to be in the south with a light coat and light jeans… the frigid air cut straight through my clothes for 5 hours, as once again rookie drivers fought over their turn to get on the truck and show their amazing skills. There wasnt enough time for everyone and I conceded myself from it just as with yesterdays backing test. Being from buffalo i know the key to getting through the cold is to to keep moving. So i took a stroll through the crowd to get my blood going… Maybe that looked weird to these southern boys but they froze as they stood still like statues.. I coaxed a few to walk and talk with me so i wouldnt look weird but they didnt seem to get the concept even as I explained it. to be fair it only takes the edge off, it doesnt cure or make it much better. Nevertheless its just another tip from my bag of survival skills.

After manuvers was a pretrip lecture dragging yard time out a further 30 more pain staking minutes… However Im glad I endured it, infact I learned some new things about pretrip inspections and how people in Tennesse do it… As a driver for awhile myself, Ive just noticed different states teach different things with pre-trip. As one who actually values pre trip inspections, the somewhat different methods break up the motony and add to my world veiw in some way. I learned new things to check for that I otherwise would never have considered… But I hardly think theyre relevant of a truth.

The bus came and we dipped out as fast as our legs could run to the bus.

DAY 4 Hotel DAY!!

Today is day 4. Currently I am waiting for a driver code (employee Id) and to be assigned a trainer, hopefully on Monday… Otherwise im just sitting in my room with my room mate writing the experience on my blog…. And I feel like at this point, someone is asking about how great the hotel is… haha.

Its not a fun hotel… it looks like they had a pool once but its filled in with dirt. The carpets are stained, and the blankets are just sheets. Theres a tv and a shower, and the wifi sucks. Its still too cold for me to want to go anywhere, but jack in the box and other places are a short walk away. I have unlimited 4g with mobil hotspot and a laptop with a busted screen… otherwise I would be on GW2 instead of writing this article…

And maybe that is why my laptop screen broke the day before I left to get here 🤔 [Im not one to believe in coincidences]

If you are a rookie looking for a company and what you have to go through here at Western Express, I hope you found this article useful in someway. A lot of people here that I’ve spoken to have felonies or other reasons for not being able to go to other companies. I cant say myself I think this is the best company out there, infact Im tempted to go back to Werner already or maybe check out Schneider. Unlike many here, I have plenty of options to pick from. I am told because of my experience I dont need a trainer, but I insisted on getting one anyway to help shake the rust off my absence from trucking and maybe learn a new thing or 2 from someone more experienced then me. The recuriter told me he will put me in for one, but he thinks just a week with one will do fine for me. For a rookie training here its only a month long process. (At Werner my training was 3.5 months). Short training honestly is the better route in my opinion. If I were just entering the industry. From what I can see of this company I would actually reccomend Western Express to a noob.

The selling point with western express, from my perspective, is on the road they limit your options and tell you where to get gas, what to think, where to stop, and where to park your truck at hometime… At werner I had nobody holding my hand at all and a lot of things in the beginning was very stressful because of it. Taking thinking for yourself out of the equation, is where its worth getting an initial 6 months experience into the game here. The short training period is another perk – because really you should forget the word “training”… in most cases its team driving but the ‘trainer’ gets paid a lot guap off of your miles plus his/hers. You’ll just get a few dollars to appease you and keep you interested in the game. It can also get fatigueing to be out too long with a trainer – that was pretty much my sentiment when I trained with werner… Its not so much about “learning” parsè, it’s about getting what little you already learned in truck school – honed and matured. In my case I want a trainer only because i want to learn about the company from a driver whos been here a long while… And with any luck he has some tips and tricks to show me along the way… though I expect we will be team driving all the same as any rookie would, and im not so strapped for cash to be too worried about earning more then $500 next week….

As for myself and already going through the wringger and learning the game a bit, this complete ‘dont think just do’ policy could become an irritating feature – I am a highly free spirited person – and I dont want to work for JB Hunt either for this reason. (JB Hunt does the same thing, but much more extreme). If youre a rookie, your not gonna think for yourself with a trainer at any company on the road anyway. and really you should sit whatever attitude you may have about it aside and absorb every ounce of wisdom you can get. Be studious and you will actually go far in this industry, your dispatcher will hansomly reward you if he sees that trait in you – NOBODY likes a jerk, but especcially if hes a know nothing jerk. However, as for myself I’m here now and otherwise I think ill go ahead and give them a chance. I’m just going to stay positive, pick my battles, be friendly and (yes even me) learn, Learn, LEARN!

That is my experience at Western Express orientation thus far. If you have any questions, drop it in the comments or shot me an email by Clicking Here

Is Satan Ominpotent or Omnipresent

try to follow me… First understand ‘time’ is relative to ‘dimensions’… Angels, like satan, are not on our dimension but they do share the same space-time as we do. In the 4th and 5th dimension time is like a direction (up, down, left, right, forward, and back)… The Angel can give us the apperance they are ominpotent or omnipresence, because ‘time’ itself is alot more flexable to them. There is a range of how far forward and back in time they can go. Meaning they are still limited by ‘time’, just not as limited as we are. This is known as ‘M-theory’ and ‘string theory’ and backed by a lot of mathematics… and when you understand angles according to scripture it becomes clear what/how they live… they live on a higher dimension, or spirit world, scripture calls a heaven – the second of 3 heavens

God, does not exist in this universe or any knowable space-time, he has his own ‘heaven’ (he is in the 3rd and highest of heavens).. He sees everything, from begining to end, he is everywhere and yet no where – technically. He is not bound in anyway by atleast this space-time as us or the angels are. This is why he is ominpotent and omnipresent and clearly no – satan is not… if he were he would know the day and hour Jesus returns – and scripture tells us only god knows that – and by physics you may see why only god would know and angels do not. He sees all of it more or less, kind of sorta of, the same way you watch television, but are not in the television.

logically digging into theology with science can be so much fun 😉

Skyrim theme, Ukulele Tab & Video

 

Intro :
Just repeat the rythm of the original piece with the C powerchord
(0033), and before the chorus, play this 4 notes sequence 2 times :
C string open, E string 1st fret, A string 3rd fret and A string 1st
fret (then 5th fret for the second time). Play these notes while
continuing the rythm with the C powerchord, in a crescendo.
Just before this, I like to introduce the piece by playing slowly
and lightly the first half of the chorus.

Ending :

Just play the C powerchord (0033), the G# (1343), the F (2010)
and the higher F (5558). Play each chord a long time with a rapid
gentle strum, you may improvise some other notes during them.

Then I like to end the piece with this chord : 2011 (like an F chord
but you fret the A string at the 1st fret instead of playing it open).
Play it from the A string to the G string, it sounds better 😉

Agorism Explained

Im watching this old movie Merlin on amazon with my kid… At the end of all the struggles Merlin has with Queen Mab, they go head to head in one last fight…. Seeing he cant beat her by fighting her, he instead yells to her and all the king arthurs court “We will just forget about you”. He turns his back and walks away, the room full of people follow as she pathetically screams for their attention. Not one person looked back as her pleas grew quiet. It was only by this that she finally disappears….

Such a powerful scene that expresses agorism perfectly. We will carry on with our lives and ignore and forget governments existence. Let it scream and cry with its very last breathes. We will not pay its taxes, we will not aknowledge its laws, we will not entertain its stories, nor will we take part in its benefits/magic. We will just forget.

Government is pure superstition. Its power only comes from the shared delusion that its authority is legitimate.

Government Works to God’s Purpose

 

        The featured image at the top of this article is a well known painting of the tower of Babel. This is the seed of the idea that we humans need social organization. Here is where Genesis records the first ever government established by Nimrod.  As scripture tells us, the aim to build the tower was for him to make a name for himself and to place his throne next to the most high God. Not only did Nimrod blatantly rally the descendants of Noah to disobey God’s commands to spread out and multiply. He pushed them further to build this tower matching his level of arrogance towards God. Most of us know this story, but something seldom understood is this is where just the concept of ‘government’ began and spread out through out all the world. This article can begin with no other reminder, and we shouldn’t be surprised to see through all history the fruits of man made government has always been aweful. 

I am sure every Christian is familiar with scriptures end time prophecy in one interpretation or another (preterist’s please review 2 Peter 3: 3-7) – and so to recap I will only highlight the part in the end when Jesus returns, abolishes all nations and establishes his kingdom. Daniel the prophet saw this in his interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, but this fact is reiterated by nearly all of the bibles prophets onward to Revelation. The fact is, Government has a purpose and yes of course it works to Gods purpose, but it’s purpose is only to be abolished. To anyone who has read revelation, the struggle government puts on Christian’s is uncompromisingly horrific –  Equally is it’s destruction. and so just to recap:

“And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever, 45 just as you saw that a stone was cut from a mountain by no human hand, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold. A great God has made known to the king what shall be after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation sure.” Daniel 2:44-45 esv

If we know governments origin and future, Why then do all Christians know this, yet so many cling to government so earnestly? If we should tell ourselves; “Even Government Works to Gods Purpose”, why then do none of us praise and give thanks to the Roman soldiers for nailing Jesus to the cross? 

It’s time to think and get real about our Faith!

I believe many of us are simply blinded, and we genuinely have not put the pieces together of things we already know because we’ve been doped by patriotism. It is for those majority in this category  why I write this in love. Though I make no apologies for asking you to choose between your God or your country. The only patriotism you should have is your citizenship to the kingdom of God.

What need I explain to you anything other then what God himself explains?

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,” – Philippians 3:20 “So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God” – Ephesians 2:19 “They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.” John 17:16

And Just one more verse of many more unmentioned:

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”– Revelation 21: 1-27

We are literal “citizens” of Christ’s kingdom! Not America, Not Uganda, Not Italy, Nor Britain or any other nation on earth at past or present time do we Christians owe allegiance. And If I may stretch your understanding further, I ask you to examine the definition of the word ‘Nation’;Untitled

Ask yourself; Are we Christians united, throughout the world, by common History, and Culture many/most Descent? What if I told you WE are a growing nation that has been building up since Christ? Christ told us this:

“…The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” Matthew 13: 31-32

Jesus is the seed of that mustard tree!! This is not just a flowery metaphor with this fictional lala land ‘Kingdom of God’. NO, This is a legitimate kingdom, here on earth right here and now and for the past 2000 years…. It is time we got with the program!!!

WE are citizens of America, in the same way the tribal Israelites were ‘citizens’ of Egypt. WE are citizens of America, in the same way the Israelites were ‘citizens’ of Babylon in the time of Daniel. We are here in America, born here even, but we are not American. Every time we ask God to ‘Bless America’ – we express our ignorance of our own faith in Christ – Some I would say blatantly reject him with this saying. [Though of course this statement extends to any other nation, not just America]

America is a Christian Nation

We are constantly told we are a Christian nation, yet when asking someone simply “Why”, reveals a slew of strawmen, justifications, things that make no sense, and something George Washington did. The thing is, Jesus told us to judge all things by it’s fruit – Whatever the intentions the founding fathers had, Today’s America is the fruit of their works in creating this nation. Democrat or Republican or other, You can not stand there and tell me this country is not in a constant state of confusion and disarray. Further, America (born in blood shed) has been at war since it’s founding 242 years ago – yet we are asked to believe the ‘prince of peace’ in someway considers this his favorite country.

Republicans, I feel more compelled to assure you by no means could anyone consider me ‘Liberal’, though I know for you this is a hard pill to swallow. The fact is this is not a Christian nation, it is like any other nation. It, taxes, regulates all aspect of our lives and involves itself in wars – lately of which has nothing to even do with us. How can this be a Christian nation when Jesus himself says;

“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. or if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect”.Matthew 5: 38-48

I hear the excuses; “Every nation in the world has wars” – To which is exactly what would be my point. We are asked to be in the world but not of the world and not follow the ways of the world. If this is a Christian nation – it must be held to a Christian standard and christs commands. Whether the founders intended it to govern under Christian ideals, the fact is this government is secular and indifferent to religion. The only thing Conservatives often tell me in this regard, is the road to hell has been paved with good intentions. All the same it is the road to hell and you are on it with this ungodly patriotism.

Closing

in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. – Ephesians 2:2-3

As Proverbs tells us, Do not put your faith in princes, there is no help there. As Jesus tells us, solve your disputes first among each other, if unsuccessful then take it to the church and not the secular courts of which God does not dwell. Know that all things are spiritual and a fight between powers and principalities. Trust in God, take comfort only in him.

I can tell you nothing but what scripture already tells you. I can only put the pieces together of things you already know. If sin is the natural persons heart, and even after salvation people sin – How then can we trust other people to rule over us? And by what authority do they rule, other then by other sinners? We build our society as the blind leading the blind – (Though I am confident politicians tend to be the most blind). God is the only one sovereign, and he has appointed only his son to rule over us as no one else is worthy. Any ‘government’ we create for ourselves can only be corrupted by our own sins. How we live in a world where we are forced to be subject to government, I think is another article thats pending. this article is simply a wake up call.

 

Romans 13

Romans 13 has to be the most misused passage in the bible.

Romans 13 is NOT an exclusive license for the government to do whatever it pleases. It is not a universal endorsement by God of all the evil government does. And further, it doesnt even tell you that you cannot speak out against the government, nor that you cannot disobey it.

God explicitly said government is a REJECTION of Him. It isnt good; its evil.

The only thing Romans 13 does, is tell you to act like a Christian in the same manner we are told countless times.

“If someone strikes you, turn the other cheek”
“If someone takes your tunic, give to him your cloak also”

This isnt an endorsement of the theif, or the assaulter, it merely tells Christians to endure WRONG and EVIL actions, knowing that their Creator will repay, and knowing that they are foreigners in this land, and just passing through.

HEGELIAN WITCHCRAFT- is the global foundation of mainstream propagandas.

FALSE LIGHT- sounds REAL, looks REAL, and feels REAL.

“Just tell the Christian that their depression is from an outside & “scientific” source; one that they have no control over!”

False light and Luciferean religion is so prevalent in this late time, that it affects EVERYONE!

The Globatlist Elite have round table discussions, specific to assaulting Christianity.

The CFR- The Counsil of Foreign Relations, is simply a front group infrastructure of the presidential Skull & Crossbones 322 {Satantist who mock Genesis 3:22}. The CFR is inclusive of prominent world religious leaders, elite entertainers, and so-called conservative politicians. The foremost focus, is assaulting THE FAITH of The Biblical Christ!
It’s end-goal is to remove the perceptions of individuality, loyalty, and Biblical Foundations of The Faith.

The Bible calls these operatives of the satanic world government-
“SORCERIES!”

It’s literally the same affects of being DRUGGED!

The infiltrated worldviews planted within trending propagandas, ALWAYS FOCUS UPON AN EXTERNAL VARIABLE, in defining an INTERNAL CAUSE & EFFECT!

Thereby, an individual looks to foreign stimuli, INSTEAD of their own spiritual conditions!

This week, Trump takes center stage on the Dr. Oz programmings. The entirety of their agenda was a focus that exactly mirrors the #PinealGland PSYOPS!

http://www.brain-health-news.org/donald/donald-trumpfuse-mo.html

Do we understand yet that the 666 Luciferean One World Religion- is wholly predicated upon demonology that’s cloaked within the premise of physiological & psychological rhetoric?

“Science” is the revised definition of DEMONOLOGY!

BOTTOMLINE-
THE GLOBAL CONSPIRACY IS-
the agenda to pose to the masses, – that their central nervous systems are CONTROLLED by Globatlist forces!

Oh! Tell the Christian that their pineal gland is opened by prayer!

Next-
Tell them that their pineal gland is “Calcified” and needs detoxifications
due to fluoridated or contaminated water supplies.

THE HEGELIAN DIALECT-

THE PROBLEM-

THE REACTION-

THE ORCHESTRATED “SOLUTIONS”-

ARE ALL MANIPULATIONS OF WITCHCRAFTS!

It’s the SAME with “Chemtrails” or with Radiation frequencies!

DO WE SEE THAT IF WE PUT OUR FAITH IN {BY FEARING} THESE GLOBATLIST TRAPS-
THEN WE’LL WHOLLY IGNORE BIBLICAL TRUTH ABOUT THE SPIRITUAL REALMS AND THE REAL SOURCES OF SATANIC OPPRESSION?

While there IS some TRUTH within these REAL scenarios-

TEST THE SPIRITS!

TEST THE FRUITS!

These are ALWAYS an OUTSIDE problem!

These are ALWAYS a world government provocation!

EVERY SNARE OF SATAN IS EXPOSED IN THE HOLY BIBLE!

EVERY DEFENSE!-
AGAINST HIS SOPHISTRY IS GIVEN!

We SHALL overcome by Blood of The Lamb!
By the Word of our Testimony!
And by not loving our lives unto the death!
-WORSHIP GOD!

WORSHIP GOD!- meaning let GOD- be your WHOLE fear and dread!-

The WORLD’s deliberate intention in it’s creation of global conspiracy-
is ULTIMATELY-
the PSYOPS that the SYSTEMS OF THE WORLD CONTROL HUMANITY‼️

THEY LIE!

THEY DO NOT SOVEREIGNLY CONTROL!

The spirit and the fruit of these of MASSIVE ISSUES-
IS 100% SPIRITUAL!

The spirit and the fruits ALWAYS blame an external source for internal spiritual conditions!

It takes away an individual’s power and their authority!
Therefore- it leads to depression!

It leads to UNBELIEFS of God’s SOVEREIGNTY and to ultimate unbeliefs in HIS WORD!

WHO’S REPORT WILL YOU BELIEVE?

Jesus Christ Says that GOD is our Atmosphere! He sits us in Heavenly Places FAR ABOVE all cosmic and alien powers!
It is Written-

“….and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not harm them!”

RECOGNIZE that all of the world’s conspiracies-
create a hopelessness, and they catapult us to live what we BELIEVE- in a Holy, Supernatural FAITH!

“-IF-” we bite the poisonous knowledge, to believe those CONTROLLING SPIRITS-
then it becomes a master!

EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE PINEAL GLAND PSYOPS- UNDERMINES RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST AND MOCKS REPENTANCES, WHILE OPENING UP OCCULT THEORY!

ULTIMATELY- do we have the Biblical Foundation to only REVERENTIALLY FEAR GOD- and to plead His Precious Blood over our lives and over our loved ones!-??

I’m certain that many will fight the Truth that I’ve spoken here!

I don’t care!

I SEE- this satanic assignment for what it truly is!

All- “Weather Space Events”-
Including ALL that’s environmentally engineered-
are literally Globatlist “Executive Orders”- originating from the CFR’s “Lucis Trust,” specifically generated to MODIFY BEHAVIORS! These are literally a branch of the CIA- MK ULTRA operatives to manipulate humanity behaviors!

The BIBLE Calls this whole mess- WITCHCRAFTS!

Ignorance- creates FEAR!
Fear creates- hatred!

ALL Globatlist’ agendas ultimately- are meant to undermined The FAITH-
They’ve been strategized to form a perception of a Globatlist, Controlling “Master!” Their end-goal is the Hegelian Dialect-
TOWARDS THE ANTICHRIST RELIGION!

THAT’S WHAT’S HAPPENING!!!
