“Synarchy...is ‘government by secret societies’,
or by a group of initiates who operate from behind the scenes.
It is an analogue of ‘theocracy’, or rule by a priesthood.”
~ Marquis Alexandre Saint-Yves d’Alveydre
THE DOMINIONIST THEOCRACY
“For us there are not checks to limit the range of our activity. Our Super-Government subsists in extra-legal conditions which are described in the accepted terminology by the energetic and forcible word - Dictatorship. I am in a position to tell you with a clear conscience that at the proper time we, the law-givers, shall execute judgment and sentence, we shall slay and we shall spare, we, as head of all our troops, are mounted on the steed of the leader. ” (Protocol 9.3)

Rousas Rushdoony’s son-in-law is Gary North, a Libertarian economist and President of the Institute For Christian Economics. Gary North was and probably still is a Governor of the Council for National Policy. (CNP Database) North was also a senior staff member of the Foundation for Economic Education, which founded the Mont Pelerin Society, and a contributor to FEE’s journal, The Freeman. In 1976, Gary North was a research assistant for Congressman Ron Paul.
“Gary Kilgore North (born 1942) is an economist and publisher who writes on topics including economics, history, and Christian theology. Between 1961 and 1963, while an undergraduate student, North became acquainted with the works of Austrian School economists Ludwig von Mises, F.A. Hayek, and Murray Rothbard. Starting in 1967, North became a frequent contributor to the libertarian journal The Freeman where he had first read their work. He later joined the senior staff of the publisher, the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE), 1971–73. North received a PhD in history from the University of California, Riverside in 1972. His dissertation was The Concept of Property in Puritan New England, 1630–1720.
“He served as research assistant for libertarian Republican Congressman Ron Paul in Paul’s first term (1976). He shared a small office with the Calvinistic political philosopher, John W. Robbins, who later became a noted anti-Van Til author and publisher. Also on the staff was economist and historian Bruce Bartlett, although in his pre-supply-side economics days. Many of North’s articles have appeared on LewRockwell.com.
“He is the founder of the publishing firm Institute for Christian Economics (ICE). The company reportedly got its start with a bequest from an anonymous benefactor. That benefactor was North, who never received a salary or book royalties for the twenty-five years of its existence. At North’s request, the board disbanded the ICE in 2001. The assets were transferred to Dominion Educational Ministries, Inc., a non-profit organization that operates Christian day cares. North is a member of the Presbyterian Church in America.
“R.J. Rushdoony, one of the founders of Christian Reconstructionism, was North’s father-in-law, and North is a Christian Reconstructionist. The Institute for Christian Economics published many Christian Reconstructionist books online. Christian Reconstructionists are also presuppositionalists in their approach to Christian apologetics as taught by the Calvinist philosopher Cornelius Van Til, and oppose natural law theory as a basis for civil law order.” (Gary North Christian Reconstruction)
Although he was personally estranged from his father-in-law, Gary North has carried forward Rushdoony’s Calvinist Reconstructionist philosophy and teachings, and further maintains that Christians and Christian churches must become involved in Dominionist-type political activism.
“Like all aspects of Reconstructionist theology, these two perspectives have real-world consequences. When translated into theology, [Gary] North’s focus on the future role of the church led him to embrace a more active political agenda. Long before North and Rushdoony publicly parted ways, North had already aggressively sought out political influence. In 1976 he worked in Washington, D.C. as a staffer for Texas Representative Ron Paul. After Paul’s defeat, North wrote a testy screed warning Christians that Washington was a cesspool that can’t be changed overnight. He turned his back on national politics and began developing practical tactics for churches to deploy at the grassroots level. Unlike Rushdoony who focused most of his attention on ideas, North explicitly worked to pull together disparate church groups, most notably reaching out to charismatic and Pentecostal congregations in the South in an effort to fuse Reconstructionism’s grassroots activism with committed congregations. When American society collapses under the combined weight of massive foreign debt, military overstretch, and internal decadence, North hopes to have a network of churches ready to step into the breech. In preparation, he has written book after book aimed at educating Christians on how to live debt free, avoid electronic surveillance, and develop the skills necessary for surviving economic collapse.
“In short, North’s version of Reconstructionism blazed a path for the militia and Christian survivalist groups of the 1990s to follow.” (“The Libertarian Theocrats”)
HOWARD PHILLIPS / “CHURCH-BASED” MILITIAS
“Significantly, both Pratt and Phillips are believers in ‘Dominion Theology,’ or ‘Christian Reconstructionism,’ a religious variant that strongly opposes abortion and homosexuality, asserts that secular humanistic law must be replaced with ‘Biblical law,’ and promotes an intense ultra-nationalism. Reconstructionists maintain that Christians are ‘the Chosen People,’ and that God has commanded them to take ‘dominion’ over the world.” (“Blueprint for Death Squads in North America”)
In 2008, Howard Phillips spoke at “Ron Paul’s Rally for the Republic” and the “Ron Paul Revolution Rally.” During the Nixon Administration, Howard Phillips was Director of the U.S. Office of Economic Opportunity and Director of the Executive Office of the President. Phillips, who claims to be a Jewish convert to Christianity, also worked on the staff of 33º Mason, Sen. Jesse Helms who, in 1975, directed him to found The Conservative Caucus (TCC). TCC had an interlocking directorate (Phillips served on advisory board) with the United States Council for World Freedom (USCWF) of the World Anti-Communist League (WACL), a worldwide Fascist network comprised of former Nazis and Nazi collaborators. The U.S. branch of the World Anti-Communist League was funded by Texas oil billionaires Nelson Bunker Hunt and Herbert William Hunt.
WACL leader, Major General John K. Singlaub, had been Commander of the Joint Unconventional Warfare Task Force in Vietnam known as the Military Assistance Group-Special Operations Group (MAS-SOG) political murder unit. John Singlaub and Lt. Col. Oliver North of Iran-Contra fame, are both members of the Council for National Policy. Singlaub and North directed “Operation Phoenix” in South Vietnam in which 200,000 civilians were slaughtered. Under Singlaub, the WACL also organized death squads in Latin America.
“Since 1981, retired U.S. Major General John K. Singlaub has been the leader of the WACL. Singlaub’s background includes CIA activities in China in the late 1940s, high-level CIA leadership in South Korea during the Korean war, and leadership of Operation Phoenix during the Vietnam war. Operation Phoenix involved psychological operations, intelligence, low-intensity warfare and covert assassination programs.
“Under Singlaub’s leadership, WACL funded the contras in Nicaragua, UNITA in Angola, Renamo in Mozambique, and other right-wing rebel movements. But what is most interesting, for this analysis, was the continuing relationship, under Singlaub, of the WACL with the ‘death squads’ that murdered tens of thousands of progressives, human rights activists, unionists, and other ‘unwanted elements,’ in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Argentina.
“Singlaub accepted the leadership of WACL with a plan. In his own words: ‘The term ‘unconventional warfare’ includes in addition to terrorism, subversion, and guerrilla warfare, such covert and non-military activities as sabotage, economic warfare, support to resistance groups, black and gray psychological operations, disinformation activities, and political warfare. ... What is needed as a matter of urgency, is a national strategy which recognizes the whole spectrum of political conflict and most especially the current unrecognized conflict at the unconventional warfare end of the scale.’” (David Lethbridge, “A Blueprint for Death Squads in North America”)
In 1979, USCWF board member, Howard Phillips, co-founded the Moral Majority with Paul Weyrich, Jerry Falwell, Richard Viguerie, and Terry Dolan, a homosexual who died of AIDS. Nelson Bunker Hunt contributed $1 million to the Moral Majority in 1981, the same year he provided the start-up money for the Council for National Policy. The funding of the Moral Majority and the CNP may have been through a $1 billion loan arranged by the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Paul Volcker, and/or the liquidation of the Hunt Brothers’ silver hoard in Switzerland. Howard Phillips was also a founder of the John Birch Society’s intelligence agency, the Western Goals Foundation. Western Goals’ principals formed the nucleus of the CNP, on whose Board of Governors Howard Phillips served. In 1992, Phillips founded the US Taxpayer Party which was renamed the Constitution Party in 1999. Phillips was the USTP presidential candidate in the 1992 and 1996 and the Constitution Party candidate in the 2000 elections for U.S. President. Phillips’ running mate in 1996 was CNP member Herb Titus, the founding Dean of Regent University Law School. Titus was fired by Pat Robertson in 1993 because his Dominionist views were too radical. Robertson served on the CNP Board of Governors and Executive Committee.
colleague, Larry Pratt, is Executive
Director of Gun Owners of America and, like Phillips, a member of the CNP. Pratt also served
on the National Executive Committee of the U.S. Taxpayer Party.
Like Singlaub and North who organized military
death squads in Vietnam and Latin America, Howard Phillips and Larry Pratt have
Like Singlaub and North who organized military death squads in Vietnam and Latin America, Howard Phillips and Larry Pratt
have played aleading role in the mobilization of the armed militia movement which is modeled after the death squads of Latin America.
“...in 1990, Pratt wrote the blueprint for how such ‘well-armed local militias’ might operate: Armed People Victorious. This book was based on the experience of the evangelical Christian militias that General Singlaub had helped arm and train in the Philippines, and the death squad militias of Guatemala, armed by the Christian right in the U.S., that the WACL and related organizations had helped to establish. (See: “Antipas: A CIA Front: Latin America”)
“It was very clear what Pratt had in mind. After glorifying and praising the effectiveness of these vigilante murderers, he then compares them to the people’s militias operating during the American Revolutionary War. Pratt writes: ‘While the United States has forgotten its success in this area, other countries have rediscovered them. It is time that the United States return to reliance on an armed people. There is no acceptable alternative.’...
“By the time that the contemporary right-wing Militia movement began in earnest, two or three years later – seeming to most observers to simply spring up overnight – Howard Phillips had become leader of the United States Taxpayers Party (USTP), and Pratt was on its national committee. Both the USTP and Larry Pratt were instrumental in the formation and growth of the militias, and the direction they would take in the future…” (David Lethbridge, “A Blueprint for Death Squads in North America”)
The 1992 Ruby Ridge, Idaho conflict between Randy Weaver and the FBI/BATF, in which Weaver’s wife and son were murdered, was followed by a convention of the Christian Identity/Dominion Theology movement in Estes Park, Colorado. This meeting provided the platform for Larry Pratt to mobilize an outraged crowd of neo-Nazis and similar right-wing extremists to form an armed militia movement.
“Today’s militia movement can be traced to the extreme-right response to...a meeting of some 160 right-wing extremist leaders at Estes Park, Colorado, on 22 October, 1992. Many of the participants were involved in either Identity or Dominion theology. ...standing out among this crowd of neo-Nazis, Identity believers, Klansmen, Freemen, and professional extremists, was Larry Pratt. Pratt’s connections crossed from Singlaub’s fanatical global World Anti-Communist League, to the Council for Inter-American Security, to Gun Owners of America, to the anti-abortion Committee to Protect the Family Foundation, to the right wing of the Republican Party. Pratt, alone, was the Washington insider.
“It was at Estes Park, that Pratt spoke to the assembled fanatics and convinced them that the armed vigilante death squads that had worked their poison in Central America and in the Philippines, could become the model for an armed militia movement within the United States. Shifting his argument back and forth between religious duty and guerrilla tactics, Pratt claimed that it was armed citizens militias that could prevent increasing immigration from Mexico and beyond, that could deter ‘rioting’ by African-Americans, and that could intervene in incidents like Ruby Ridge. For Pratt, the issue was, as he put it, a matter of ‘spiritual warfare.’ In the end, the Estes Park leadership endorsed Pratt’s strategy, and the militia movement began in earnest.
“Since Estes Park, Pratt has repeatedly associated himself with Christian Identity believers, white supremacists, and militia leaders...” (David Lethbridge, “A Blueprint for Death Squads in North America”)
Two years after the Estes Park gathering, Howard Phillips’ sold a paramilitary manual at the USTP convention. Under the guise of Christian dominion, the USTP has been organizing “church-based armed militias” whose mission is to execute those who disobey the Bible.
“At its 1994 convention, the USTP sold a paramilitary manual entitled ‘Principles Justifying the Arming and Organizing of a Militia’. This 100-page manual quickly became a staple within the militia movement and right-wing extremist circles. It sets out in specific detail the intended command structure for a militia, listing militia ranks, units commanded, and the number of men within units. Generals, for example, command divisions of between 10702-12238 men; Sergeants command cells of 7-8 men, and so on. Contact between levels of command is limited and split to prevent exposure should lower members be captured or interrogated. Militia members are obliged to obey all orders from superior officers without question. Sections of the manual are devoted to wiretapping, surveillance, infiltration, classification of documents, lists of words never to be used in public (‘ammunition,’ ‘explosives,’ ‘sniper,’ etc.) and detailed countermeasures against ‘enemy’ activities. In short, it is a manual that prepares the recruit for underground war.
“Leaders within the USTP have called for a return to biblical ‘patriarchy,’ the criminalization of homosexuality, executions for abortion-providers, and the formation of church-based armed militias. Indeed, extensive militia training by the Free Militia of Wisconsin has accompanied at least one USTP conference. USTP leaders call for the arrest of progressive Congressmen and Senators who oppose their aims.” (David Lethbridge, “A Blueprint for Death Squads in North America”)
Howard Phillips, a Jew, handing out warfare manuals to anti-Semites? What’s wrong with this picture? This scenario only makes sense if the anti-Semitic militia members are Jewish agent provocateurs inciting Gentiles to break the law.
“Sophisticated totalitarian governments always use agents provocateurs to smoke out resisters. They send undercover agents into resistance groups to provoke them to violence, so that they can use that violence as ‘proof’ of the need for greater tyranny. Make no mistake: our American totalitarians are very sophisticated in controlling the public. I once heard something in an Establishment hanger-on’s speech that I never forgot: It is easier to exert influence than to exercise control. This is the credo for today’s totalitarians who abhor the crude, heavy-handed methods of Milner or Rhodes, Stalin or Hitler.” (“The Militias, Prudence & Almighty God”)
Protocol No. 12
“11. In the third rank we shall set up
our own, to
all appearance, opposition, which, in at least one of its organs, will present
what looks like the very antipodes to us. Our real opponents at heart will
accept this simulated opposition as their own and will show us their cards.
“12. All our newspapers will be of all possible complexions – aristocratic, republican, revolutionary, even anarchical – for so long, of course, as the constitution exists .... Like the Indian idol ‘Vishnu’ they will have a hundred hands, and every one of them will have a finger on any one of the public opinions as required. When a pulse quickens these hands will lead opinion in the direction of our aims, for an excited patient loses all power of judgment and easily yields to suggestion. Those fools who will think they are repeating the opinion of a newspaper of their own camp will be repeating our opinion or any opinion that seems desirable for us. In the vain belief that they are following the organ of their party they will, in fact, follow the flag which we hang out for them.”
“Every republic passes through several stages. The first of these is comprised in the early days of mad raging by the blind mob, tossed hither and thither, right and left: the second is demagogy from which is born anarchy, and that leads inevitably to despotism - not any longer legal and overt, and therefore responsible despotism, but to unseen and secretly hidden, yet nevertheless sensibly felt despotism in the hands of some secret organization or other, whose acts are the more unscrupulous inasmuch as it works behind a screen, behind the backs of all sorts of agents, the changing of whom not only does not injuriously affect but actually aids the secret force by saving it, thanks to continual changes, from the necessity of expanding its resources on the rewarding of long services.”
Rev. Matthew Trewhella, a USTP National Committee member in Wisconsin, leads an armed militia through his church. Trewhella is also founder of Missionaries to the Preborn, which advocates that armed Christian militias murder abortion providers. At the 1994 USTP Convention, Rev. Trewhella promoted his ‘church-based armed militia’ program, which encourages parents to buy their children rifles and ammunition and teach them to kill abortionists:
“Matthew Trewhella founded Missionaries to the Preborn in 1990...
“In 1993, Trewhella signed a declaration stating that murdering abortion providers was legitimate...
“In 1994, Trewhella was a featured speaker at the radical right-wing U.S. Taxpayers Party’s Convention. He advocated forming church-based militias, and said, ‘This Christmas I want you to do the most loving thing, and I want you to buy each of your children an SKS rifle and 500 rounds of ammunition.’ He also recommended that parents teach their children how to assemble a rifle while blindfolded.
“In 1995, Rolling Stone reported that he is a
convicted arsonist. It also reaffirmed Trewhella’s affinity for church-based
militias. It said that he encourages churches to hold ‘militia days’ where the
church would train its members on how to fight. In 1998, Toronto’s NOW magazine
quoted Trewhella as saying, ‘I don’t condemn people who use force to try to
protect babies, because they are human beings.’” (Montana
Human Rights Network)
The platform of the U.S. Taxpayer Party addressed not only moral issues, such as abortion and gay rights, but “fiscal matters...the abolition of public welfare assistance, the IRS, the Federal Reserve System, which weds the federal government to private banking institutions... unchecked free trade:... the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)...” The anti-tax, anti-government USTP sold a publication, titled The Revelator, that “rails against ‘Anti-Christ Banksters’ whose basic strategy is to instigate war and finance both sides, especially if it involves Christians killing Christians.”
“(At the USTP) Convention in May 1994, [Byron] Dale led sessions on ‘The Problem with Our Debt Money System and Alternatives to the Debt Money System.’ Dale was in the early 1980’s a confidant of Posse Comitatus leader Gordon Kahl, according to the Bismarck Tribune. The Posse was an anti-tax, anti-government organization that swept the Farm Belt in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Gordon Kahl, killed two federal marshals in a shoot-out in Medina, North Dakota. Dale told federal marshals that he would hide Kahl, if he appeared, and threatened to fight foreclosure on his ranch by shooting as ‘many of the sons of bitches as he could’. At one USTP event, Dale sold The Revelator, a publication that rails against ‘Anti-Christ Banksters’ (sic) whose basic strategy is to instigate war and finance both sides, especially if it involves Christians killing Christians.” (Daily Kos: Racists & Dominionists)
Gordon Kahl (1920-1983), like Irwin Schiff, led the tax-resistance movement of his day, refused to pay taxes and served two prison sentences. He was killed in the shoot-out with Federal marshals and is revered today as a martyr for the Christian Identity movement. Unlike Irwin Schiff, Kahl’s outrage was directed against the Jewish conspiracy––and all Jews.
“If you’ve been paying tithes to the Synagogue of Satan, under the 2nd plank of the Communist Manifesto to finance your own destruction, stop right now, and tell Satan’s tithing collectors, as I did many years ago, ‘Never again will I give aid and comfort to the enemies of Christ’... These enemies of Christ have taken their Jewish Communist Manifesto, and incorporated it into the Statutory laws of our country, and threw our Constitution and our Christian Common Law (which is nothing other than the Laws of God as set forth in the Scriptures), into the garbage can.’” (Gordon Kahl - American Patriot Extraordinaire)
Despite their anti-Semitic rhetoric, Christian Identity patriots have more in common with Judaism, and the Jewish conspirators they despise, than Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. For the Law of Christ is the Royal Law of Love: “If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well.” (James 2:8) Christ’s Law does not allow for hatred of enemies or rebellion against governing authorities, which Scripture states are ordained of God.
“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. For this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour. Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” (Romans 13:1-9)
Howard Phillips claims to be an evangelical Christian, but his U.S. Taxpayer Party, now the Constitution Party, called for a pseudo-Christian theocracy with Old Testament-style punishment of those who violate the Mosaic Law. Phillips and Pratt have organized a militia movement which is gearing up to arrest liberal Congressmen and Senators whom they judge to be guilty of violating the Old Testament Law. Franklin Sanders wrote of the misnamed ‘Christian’ militias:
“Resistance to evil is always our duty, but those who fail to resist in God’s way are resisting him, and he will resist them. Look at the book of Judges or Kings or Chronicles. Evil rulers are a providential punishment from God. He will remove them when men remove the reason for the punishment.” (“The Militias, Prudence & Almighty God”)
“Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.” (Rom. 1:2)
HOWARD AHMANSON, JR.
Rousas Rushdoony founded the Chalcedon Foundation in 1965 and promoted Christian Reconstructionism through its monthly magazine, the Chalcedon Report. A major funder of the Chalcedon Foundation was Howard Ahmanson, Jr., who also served on the Council for National Policy’s Board of Governors. Ahmanson’s immense wealth was inherited from his father, Howard Ahmanson, Sr. “Ahmanson made his fortune during the Great Depression selling fire insurance for property under foreclosure and in the post-war home construction and real estate boom around Los Angeles.” (Howard Ahmanson, Sr.) “The H. F. Ahmanson & Company held the title for being the largest savings and loan institution in the United States, Home Savings of America. Ahmanson has accrued more than $48 billion in assets...” (H. F. Ahmanson & Company)
“...Ahmanson’s father, Howard Sr., was a savings and loan tycoon whose net worth was valued at over $300 million at the time of his death in 1968. Howard Jr. was only 18 at the time he inherited the fortune. Ejected from his sheltered youth to confront a world suddenly in his palm, the reluctant heir feared that he would never surpass his father’s accomplishments; at the same time, he viewed his inherited fortune as a wall separating him from humanity. After wandering the country and the world searching for peace of mind, he returned home in the mid-‘70s still a lost soul.
“It was then that he found his salvation in the church and in R.J. Rushdoony, a prolific author and an influential theologian of the far right. Rushdoony is the father of Christian Reconstructionism, a strange variant of Calvinism that stresses waging political struggle to put the earth, and in particular the U.S., under the control of biblical law. In his 30-some books, he advocated everything from the end of government-administered social welfare and public schools to the execution of homosexuals. For around 20 years, until Rushdoony’s death in 1995, Ahmanson served on the board of his think tank, Chalcedon, granting it a total of $1 million. In exchange, Rushdoony acted as Ahmanson’s spiritual advisor, imbuing him with a sense of order and a mission...
“But contrary to his wife’s account, evidence suggests Ahmanson’s political conversion was not exactly the result of a heroic epiphany. According to Sloan, founder of Project Tocsin in Sacramento, Ahmanson became a board member of Rushdoony’s Chalcedon in the mid-‘70s, so by the time he was picketing outside the Mission, he was fully immersed in the right-wing politics that are part and parcel of Chalcedon.
“Whatever the case, Ahmanson’s Calvinist ideology rapidly crystallized under Rushdoony’s tutelage. As Mrs. Ahmanson told me, Rushdoony was like a father figure to her husband when he was young and wayward. ‘Howard got to know Rushdoony and Rushdoony was very good to him when he was a young man and my husband was very grateful and supported him to his death,’ she said, adding that they were with Rushdoony at his deathbed.
“...Ahmanson...[plans] to bring America closer to resembling Calvin’s elitist ‘church of the elect,’ or what Rushdoony has called a ‘spiritual aristocracy’...” (“Avenging angel of the religious right”)
It is common for the wealthy financiers who fund right-wing organizations to also support left wing causes and globalist organizations, which the right wing organizations only pretend to oppose. Participating in the dialectial process, Howard Ahmanson, Jr. not only funds the Council for National Policy through his tax-exempt Ahmanson Foundation, he was also a contributor to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), according to 1990-1993 Annual Reports.
- by Paul Collins & Phillip Collins ©, Feb. 19th, 2007
Selections from Part 1 of 2
The oligarchical Rockefeller dynasty has enjoyed prolonged representation within the CFR... The Council itself has received continued financial support from the Rockefeller Foundation... Populated and supported by individuals with overtly elitist ambitions, the Council on Foreign Relations hardly represents the interests of the American public. Instead, it represents the interests of the ruling class. Concerning this organizational conduit for elitist initiatives, congressman John R. Rarick has issued the following admonition:
The Council on Foreign Relations – dedicated to one-world government, financed by a number of the largest tax-exempt foundations, and wielding such power and influence over our lives in the areas of finance, business, labor, military, education, and mass communication media – should be familiar to every American concerned with good government and with preserving and defending the U.S. Constitution and our free-enterprise system...
In short, the CFR is an elitist machination for the consolidation of political power. That the CNP wishes to emulate such an organization should prompt considerable suspicion. Howard Ahmanson, Jr.’s shared membership in the CNP and CFR suggests that there might be ideological commonalities between the two. Given his Establishment pedigree, Ahmanson, Jr. is more than qualified to help the CNP more closely approximate the CFR model.
It makes sense that Howard Ahmanson would be funding the CNP and the CFR simultaneously. Both are wealthy elitist organizations working toward a new social order yet conceal their true agenda. CFR members do not divulge that their goal is a one world government which will destroy the sovereignty of nations and freedom of religion, while CNP members deceptively promote this cultural transformation as a ‘Christian’ theocracy that will inaugurate the Kingdom of God on earth.
In February of 2009, Howard Ahmanson revealed his true colors, announcing that he is switching from the Republican to the Democratic Party.
Howard Ahmanson Democrat
Not to suggest that the Republican Party is truly ‘conservative’, and many Republican leaders are closet liberals; however, now Ahmanson has moved his money-power and influence over to the Democratic bloc to promote his agenda, which is the CFR/CNP one world theocratic government.
Howard Ahmanson has also funded Marvin Olasky, editor of the popular World Magazine which publishes Zionist propaganda for the Christian Right. Olasky, like Howard Phillips, is Jewish but professes to have converted from atheism to Christianity. Olasky is also a former member of the Communist Party who converted to Conservative Christian Reconstructionism.
“One of Ahmanson’s most significant investments has been in the career of a man Mrs. Ahmanson describes as his ‘dear friend,’ Marvin Olasky, the most influential propagandist of the Christian right in the last decade. A former Jew turned Marxist who then converted to Rushdoony’s Reconstructionism, Olasky spent most of the 1980s as an obscure journalism professor at the University of Texas in Austin. His first book, ‘Turning Point: A Christian Worldview Declaration,’ was published by Ahmanson’s privately held philanthropic entity, the Fieldstead Institute, and was co-authored by Fieldstead’s director, Herbert Schlossberg. Though theological scholars ignored the book, it found its way into Washington’s conservative circles, and by 1989 Olasky was offered the well-paying Bradley scholarship at the Heritage Foundation.
“In 1992, Olasky wrote ‘The Tragedy of American Compassion,’ an argument for transferring government social welfare programs to the church. In his book, Olasky cites his ‘conservative Christian’ friend Howard Ahmanson as proof that faith can cure poverty, describing how Ahmanson ‘found that poverty around the world is a spiritual as well as a material problem – most poor people don’t have faith that they and their situations can change.” (“Avenging Angel of the Religious Right”)
Since his conversion, Olasky believes the Church should sponsor the social programs he previously thought were the role of government. His influence has extended across the spectrum of Government leaders and Evangelical Christians, who are being recruited to enroll in Church-State community programs funded through federal grants.
“Also controversial for some was Olasky’s editing during the late 1980s and early 1990s of the 16-book Turning Point Christian Worldview series funded by Howard Ahmanson, Jr.’s Fieldstead Institute, which champions and funds the cause of ‘total integration of Biblical law into our lives.’ Ahmanson funded four of Olasky’s 30 books, and Michelle Goldberg, author of the book Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism, places Olasky in a crucial role to Christian reconstructionism and dominionism, saying ‘I’m not sure whether he actually identifies himself as a Christian reconstructionist, but he’s very close to Christian reconstructionism.’ Olasky, however, calls himself a ‘Christian libertarian’ and criticized Christian reconstructionism in one of his books, Standing for Christ in a Modern Babylon..
“In 1995, Olasky became an occasional advisor to then Texas gubernatorial candidate George W. Bush, who put some of Olasky’s policy suggestions into action during his term as governor by encouraging the use of religious charities to solve social problems. Christian ministries were called in by the state government to help in a variety of ways, most notably with the rehabilitation of drug and alcohol abusers and the counseling of prisoners. Their disputable success led Bush to make faith-based programs a major component of his 2000 presidential campaign, and in 2001, Olasky saw the national implementation of his ideas when President Bush created the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives...
“...Goldberg notes that the phrase now associated with Republicans, ‘compassionate conservatism,’ is in the title of one of Olasky’s books, and that Olasky was an advisor on Bush’s first Presidential campaign, influencing not only the thinking of Bush, but the thinking of the Republican Party” (Marvin Olasky)
Dominion Theology and “Christian” Reconstructionism form a belief system tailor-made for implementing a global Judeo-Christian Theocracy ruled by Calvin’s ‘church of the elect,’ which Rushdoony called a ‘spiritual aristocracy’. A global Theocracy ruled by elite Jews is the agenda of Cabalistic Zionist Jews. The only difference between them is which religion rules. A “Judeo-Christianity Theocracy” is not even remotely Christian, but Talmudic Judaism thoroughly condemned in Scripture.
“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”
Marvin Olasky revealed in his Testimony that, although he had read the New Testament (in Russian), it was not the Word of God that lead him to repentance and to Jesus Christ. No, Marvin Olasky was converted by reading the works of Puritan writers such as Jonathan Edwards, Increase Mather and Cotton Mather. These Puritan ministers were Calvinists who attempted to establish a theocratic “Kingdom of God” by enforcing the Old Testament laws regarding witchcraft in New England’s Massachusetts Bay Colony. Cotton Mather was the prosecutor of the Salem witch trials, and his father, Increase Mather, was a prominent Boston minister who became president of Harvard College. According to “Jewish Roots of the American Constitution“ by Paul Eidelberg, this Puritan minister turned educator based his contribution to the Harvard curriculum on his reading of the Talmud and other rabbinic commentaries.
“The curriculum at Harvard, like those of other early American colleges and universities, was designed by learned men of ‘Old Testament’ persuasion. Harvard president Mather (1685-1701) was an ardent Hebraist (as were his predecessors). His writings contain numerous quotations from the Talmud as well as from the works of Saadia Gaon, Rashi, Maimonides and other classic Jewish commentators.”
Rashi and Maimonides were medieval Cabalists and Talmudists. Based on his testimony, Marvin Olasky did not convert to Jesus Christ, but to John Calvin, whose source of doctrine was a modicum of Old Testament Law, but primarily the Jewish Talmud and Kabbalism.

“The obligations and rules of the rite for the Jewish masses are contained in the Talmud and Schulchan Aruk, but the esoteric teachings of the higher initiates are to be found in the Cabala. Therein are contained the mysterious rites for evocations, the indications and keys to practices for conjuration of supernatural forces, the science of numbers, astrology, etc.
“The practical application of the Cabalist knowledge is manifested in the use made of it, through the ages, by Jews to gain influence both in the higher spheres of Gentile life and over the masses. Sovereigns and Popes, both, usually had one or more Jews as astrologers and advisers, and they frequently gave Jews control over their very life by employing them as physicians. Political power was thus gained by Jews in almost every Gentile country alongside with financial power, since Jewish court-bankers manipulated state funds and taxes.
“Through the ages also, can be followed the spreading power of the sect, and no more awful example of the devastating and destructive power of the penetration of a secret subversive society has ever been witnessed.
“With its B’nai B’rith Supreme Council as the directing head, the sect with its members swarming among all nations has become the sovereign power ruling in the councils of all nations and governing their political, economic, religious and educational policies.” (Occult Theocrasy, p. 76)
For Marvin Olasky, it was only natural that he “convert” to Calvinism, where he is
still right at home with his lifelong ideologies of Judaism, Talmudism,
Kabbalism and Communism. A former Jew, Olasky
is a natural ally of

The Reconstructionist Vision of the Jewish Future
“We Reconstructionists envision a maximalist liberal Judaism. This means Jewish life that is engaged in study, worship and action and yet is completely supportive of a Jew’s full participation in secular life. We hope for a Judaism that serves as a rich source of spiritual self-expression and moral challenge in the way we conduct our lives. We dream of a Jewish people that will overcome divisions and realize its commitment to the single goal of transforming the world into one where all people are respected as bearers of the divine image. We picture an Israel at peace and a Jewish people, in both Israel and the Diaspora, that will have the dedication, knowledge, and prosperity to develop an ever richer tradition to hand down to future generations. Like all Jews, Reconstructionists are firm believers in the future. It is our dedication to the future, characterized by commitment and creativity, by the faithful heart joined to the open mind, that makes us proud of the Reconstructionists contribution to the ever-evolving heritage of the Jewish people.”

D. JAMES KENNEDY
The late D. James Kennedy (1920-2007) was the senior pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and a preacher of Christian Dominionism. Kennedy also “founded the Westminster Academy, the Knox Theological Seminary, and the Center for Reclaiming America for Christ, a now defunct socially conservative political group.” In his many books, sermons and radio messages, Kennedy preached that Christians have been called by God to establish a theocracy in which the “godly” take dominion over government, and every area and institution of secular culture. Predictably, Dr. Kennedy was a Calvinist and a member of the Council for National Policy. (CNP Database)
The Rise of the
Religious Right in the Republican Party
“The theocratic right seeks to establish dominion, or control over society in the name of God. The late D. James Kennedy, former pastor of Coral Ridge Ministries, called on his followers to exercise ‘godly dominion...over every aspect...of human society.’ At a ‘Reclaiming America for Christ’ conference in February, 2005, Kennedy said:
“Our job is to reclaim America for Christ, whatever the cost. As the vice regents of God, we are to exercise godly dominion and influence over our neighborhoods, our schools, our government, our literature and arts, our sports arenas, our entertainment media, our news media, our scientific endeavors – in short, over every aspect and institution of human society.’
“The highly secretive Council for National Policy was
founded in 1981 to conduct three-times-a-year strategy sessions. The CNP was and
still is an umbrella organization of right-wing leaders who gather regularly to
plot strategy, share ideas and fund causes and candidates to advance the
D. James Kennedy was also a false teacher of the first order. In his book, The Real Meaning of the Zodiac, Kennedy taught pagan astrology masked as “Biblical astrology.” The theme of the book is that the stars present God’s message of salvation and are a predictor of the second coming of Jesus Christ. Our analysis of The Real Meaning of the Zodiac shows that Kennedy’s objective was to prepare mankind to receive a false Christ during the Tribulation period. See: (“The False Gospel of the Stars”) Other Dominionist members of the CNP, Chuck Missler and Henry Morris, promote the false ‘gospel in the stars’ teaching.
In 1998, Christian radio stations nationwide aired an address by James Dobson, the President of Focus on the Family, to the Council for National Policy. In his address, Dr. Dobson expressed his determination to do whatever is necessary to restore the observance of “moral law.” Dobson reasoned that God created Wisdom before He created anything else, therefore the Moral Law is the law of the Universe. Freemasons are also determined to restore the rule of “natural law” and “moral law” in the world. Commenting on Dobson’s presentation to the CNP, Chey Simonton perceptively noted its Masonic quality:
“On the whole, there is very scant evidence that would convict him of being a ‘Christian’ in this speech. There is, however, considerable evidence that would tend to convict him of ‘freemasonry... References the ‘moral law of the universe’ or ‘moral law’ 11 times in the speech. No mention of the word ‘sin’... Recognizes the audience, ‘I sense that most of you are deeply committed Christians; but, that’s probably not true of all of you.’ It is well-known the CNP membership includes 33rd degree masons (Helms, Kemp and probably Willard Garvey) and many ‘christians’ who work for and/or with Sun Myung Moon organizations (Gary Jarmin, Howard Phillips, Robert Grant, Richard Viguerie, Paul Weyrich, Ron Godwin, the LaHayes, Gary Bauer, etc.). Additionally, Phyllis Schlafly and David Balsiger (publisher of the ‘Christian Scorecard’ ) have had past relationships with Elizabeth Clare Prophet’s Church Universal and Triumphant leadership. Very Masonic presentation that emphasizes ‘moral law of the universe’ and ‘wisdom’. No direct reference to Jesus Christ. His only reference to Jesus is oblique, ‘the Holy One of Israel’. References ‘people of faith’ that would cover any religion including Unificationism, Islam, Buddhism, etc.” (“Under the Law)”
The worldwide Lubavitch movement is also demanding that a universal law be imposed on mankind, viz. the Noahide Laws which will be enforced by the Sanhedrin, now revived and convening in Jerusalem. The Babylonian Talmud is the source of the Talmudic Noahide Laws which require the mass execution of idolators and other heretics. A reading of the Noahide Laws reveals that the Jewish Lubavitcher rabbis have in their sights Christians who worship Jesus Christ. The Noahide Laws will be enforced when the Learned Elders come into their theocratic Kingdom ruled by their false messiah, the Antichrist. (See: “Under the Law” and “The House of God on Trial”)
“Chemor wrote to the Grand Sanhedrin of France: ‘The advice of the Grand Satraps (world governors of the Jews) and Rabbis is as follows:
1.- Make your sons merchants, that little by little they may despoil Christians of their possessions.
2.- Make of your sons doctors and apothecaries, that they may take away Christian lives.
3.- Make of your sons, canons and clerics (clergies), that they may destroy Christianity from within. (There is hardly a Christian Seminary in America, which is not infiltrated by Jewish professors on their faculty).
4.- Arrange for your sons to become advocates and lawyers, and see that they mix themselves up with the affairs of the State, in order that by putting Christians under your yoke, you may dominate the world and be avenged on them.

“It is not difficult to see how international Judaism, especially Zionism, has followed this Protocol and how they have been helped into positions of world power by FREEMASONRY.” (The Hidden Power Behind Freemasonry, Part 4 of 8, p.87, Lt. Col. Gordon ‘Jack’ Mohr)

SUN MYUNG MOON
Universal law is also the teaching of the Unification Church of Sun Myung Moon. Moon has close ties to the Council for National Policy and its many fronts, such as Christian Reconstructionists, Moral Re-Armament, Knights of Malta, Opus Dei, etc., whch are all networking toward a Judeo-Christian theocracy. (See: “Sun Myung Moon & the CNP”)
There is good evidence that Sun Myung Moon is an agent of the House of Rothschild. In 2004, a Spanish source published an article, “Moon (I) A Reverend son of...God?,” a translation of which reveals that Moon holds accounts in the Rothschild Bank in Paris:
“In the United States, Moon has accounts at Chemical Bank (New York), Riggs Bank and American Security (Washington) and Wells Fargo (San Francisco). Also controls factories in Argentina, Australia, Canada, Costa Rica, Great Britain, Italy, West Germany and in most of Asia. The UPI news agency revealed in 1984, when it was still owned by Moon-that their companies gave the sect a profit of $500 million a year. That amount equates to profits of large international companies such as ITT or Hitachi. Only in America, the sale of ‘religious’, marble vases, miniatures and decorative flowers left earnings of 30 billion dollars annually. ..
“From Japan, the sect spread across Asia and from France, Europe...
“France was among the first countries in the Old Continent where the sect was established... There, Moon has accounts in the Rothschild Bank...
“In Paris, had its headquarters at No. 4 André Malraux Square, on the right bank of the Seine.”
“In the post-war period, Moon moved to southern Korea and joined a mystical sect called Israel Suo-won. The group preached the imminent arrival of a Korean messiah...” (“Who is Moon?”) In 1953, Sun Myung Moon “changed his name to Mun Son-myong (which he spelled ‘Moon Sun Myung’.” The Korean name “Myung” means ‘bright.’ The Sun god is Sol Invictius and “Moon” obviously refers to the Moon which is worshipped as the female consort of the Sol, the Sun god. This combination is also seen in the name of “Solomon” which the Cabalist Jews gave to the famous king of Israel who led the nation in the worship of pagan idols. (The actual Hebrew name in Scripture is “Schlomo,” not Solomon.) The Jews are being conditioned to worship a reincarnated King Solomon as their messiah. (See: “The Revelation of the Antichrist As the Second Coming of Solomon”) Considering Moon’s holdings in the Rothschild Bank in Paris, it seems entirely possible that Sun Myung Moon, who claims to be the messiah, is at least related to the Jews’ false messiah.
The Rothschild Bank which housed the Moon accounts was located in André Malraux’s Square in Paris, where the Prieuré de Sion is also located. The reader may remember André Malraux from Part I: The Learned Elders of Sion. A member of the Prieuré de Sion, Malraux worked with the Grand Master, Pierre Plantard de Saint-Clair, to put Charles de Gaulle in the office of Prime Minister following the Vichy regime. André Malraux was Minister of Cultural Affairs under De Gaulle and visited the Kennedy White House on two occasions. As a former French intelligence agent, it is likely that Malraux was a key figure behind Kennedy’s assassination.
André Malraux was a Communist who became a Fascist, but was secretly a Synarchist and a member of the Prieuré de Sion, which conspires to establish a Jewish theocracy ruled by the Learned Elders of the 33º and their priest-king, the Grand Master of the Prieuré de Sion. While Andre Malraux was meeting with Pres. John Kennedy from 1961 through 1963, the future Grand Master of the Prieuré de Sion (1963-81), Gaylord Freeman, was also meeting with JFK. As Chairman of the Board of the First National Bank of Chicago, a Federal Reserve Bank and BIS member bank, and its parent, the First Chicago Corporation, Gaylord Freeman held official positions in several U.S. administrations – Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Ford and Carter. Also on the Board of First Chicago was Thomas G. Ayers, the father of Bill Ayers. Under the patronage of Thomas G. Ayers, young Barack Obama made the right connections in Chicago’s Jewish community thus insuring the success of his career. Thomas Ayers also financed Obama’s rise to power as the President of the United States. (See Part III)
Gaylord Freeman of First Chicago Bank was a friend and colleague of Milton Friedman, the leader of the University of Chicago’s “Chicago School of Economics” which overturned Keynesian economic theory with the Austrian School economic philosophy of laissez faire, free market capitalism, i.e. unregulated by government. “Friedman became the leader of the first recognized counter-revolution against Keynesianism.” (“Milton Friedman”) Economists and politicians indoctrinated in the laissez faire economics of the Austrian School have dominated the U.S. economy since Ronald Reagan. Austrian School economics is also the common denominator of the disparate elements of the Libertarian movement which is gaining in popularity.
Eustace Mullins, author of The World Order, associated the Congress of Vienna, a Rothschild scheme to create a League of Nations, with the Austrian School of Economics, which has been the “principal vehicle through which the World Order maintains its political and financial power.”
“It was the Congress of 1815 at Vienna which unleashed the rats from their nests, nor is it accidental that the Viennese School of Economics (Austrian School of Economics) has become the principal vehicle through which the World Order maintains its political and financial power. After crushing Napoleon, the emerging oligarchy, which owed no allegiance to any nation or to any philosophy of life, attained power because it knew how to defeat its foes, the republicans and individualists of Europe; but its foes had no idea how to combat, or even to identify, its cleverly camouflaged enemy, because these people were a biological throwback in the continuing development of humanity.” (The World Order, Ch. 8)
“The order of Bnai-Brith is an order of international Freemasonry reserved exclusively for Jews... It was founded in New York in 1813 but at present its headquarters are at Chicago. It divides the world into 11 districts of which 7 are in the United States. The number of its lodges is about 500 with nearly a hundred thousand adherents. The four members of its executive committee who do not live in the United States are respectively at Berlin, Vienna, Bucharest and Constantinople.” (Vicomte Leon De Poncins, 1929, p. 215)
“At the present time Jews and freemasons are working in collaboration throughout the whole world for the triumph of the universal revolution. The high masonic posts are for the most part held by Jews in various countries. There are lodges which are exclusively Jewish such as the notorious masonic order of Bnai Brith whose headquarters is in Chicago.” (Poncins, p. 100)
The Financial Vampires have, through their tax-free foundations, launched a worldwide network of think tanks and other controlled opposition fronts, all preaching the corporate gospel laissez faire capitalism. In the various Christian media one often hears nothing about the Gospel but only about 2nd Amendment Rights, Patriotism, Freedoms, and everything secular treated as sacred. In many Christian churches, secular ideals have become articles of Faith: Zionism, Dominionism, Patriotism, Free Enterprise and the next American Revolution.
Under the banner of Americanism, anti-government agent provocateurs lead church-based paramilitary forces which will soon erupt in violence. Christian Reconstructionists and Dominionists use the revolutionary language found in the Protocols of Zion, whose Learned Elders have been the hidden hand behind violent revolutions of the past. A case in point is Eric Heubeck’s, revolutionary manifesto titled, “The Integration of Theory and Practice: A Program for the New Traditionalist Movement,” published in 2001 by Paul Weyrich’s Free Congress Foundation:
“The first stage will be devoted to the development of a highly motivated elite able to coordinate future activities... Our strategy will be to bleed this corrupt culture dry... Our movement will be entirely destructive, and entirely constructive. We will not try to reform the existing institutions. We only intend to weaken them, and eventually destroy them. We will endeavor to knock our opponents off-balance and unsettle them at every opportunity. All of our constructive energies will be dedicated to the creation of our own institutions... We will use guerrilla tactics to undermine the legitimacy of the dominant regime... We must create a countervailing force that is just as adept as the Left at intimidating people and institutions... Moreover, the New Traditionalists must be interested in learning about sociology, social psychology, and the dynamics of social change. We must study examples of dissident and counter-cultural groups that succeeded in ascending to dominance – we must learn from them... The new movement will inevitably be geared toward children and young adults,.. The new movement will promote discipline and loyalty and self-sacrifice. Advancing one’s personal interests by harming the interests of the movement will never be overlooked or forgotten... we will not consider ourselves above appearing ‘unseemly’ or surrendering some our personal dignity. We must be willing to shake people out of their complacency – which means being obnoxious if the situation requires it...” (Free Congress Foundation)
It would be a grave mistake to think the world doesn’t notice the violent and cultic nature of the Dominionist movement. In the same way the Simulated Opposition is inflaming the Right, Leftist agent provocateurs are working the non-Christian masses, stirring up a powerful reaction against Christianity that will one day recoil against the Church and destroy the United States. Leon de Poncins wrote,
“The the Jews have entirely created masonry in order to corrupt the nations of Christian civilization and to propagate behind this veil the general revolution which is to bring about the domination of Israel. It is simply a tool and a means in the hands of the Jews.”
The corruption of Christian civilization, which is far advanced, will lead to its overthrow, as well as the downfall of the United States. Upon its ruins, the Learned Elders of Sion will build the kingdom of the Antichrist.
“When we come into our kingdom it will be undesirable for us that there should exist any other religion than ours of the One God with whom our destiny is bound up by our position as the Chosen People and through whom our same destiny is united with the destinies of the world. We must therefore sweep away all other forms of belief. If this gives birth to the atheists whom we see to-day, it will not, being only a transitional stage, interfere with our views, but will serve as a warning for those generations which will hearken to our preaching of the religion of Moses, that, by its stable and thoroughly elaborated system has brought all the peoples of the world into subjection to us.”
“After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns...
“Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;...
“Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.” (Dan. 7:7,19, 23-25)
For Christians, this is not the time for taking up arms to “reclaim America,” but for soberly watching unto prayer, “But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.” (1 Peter 4:7) “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Lk 21:28) For our citizenship is not in this world, but in heaven, where Christ is. “But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.” (Heb. 11:16)
For the world, judgment is approaching, and God is calling all men to repentance. “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.” (Acts 17:30-31)
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
