The simple inherit folly: but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.
Proverbs 14:18 — King James Version
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 1:7 — King James Version
Many years ago I wrote fiction. I no longer write fiction preferring reality and truth over make believe and delusional fantasy, escapism writing. Non-fiction is where it’s at.
Many of you reading this will be familiar with the ancient Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times.”
Well, folks, step right up, gather ’round, because we’re living in THEE MOST interesting times in world history (other than when Jesus Christ was on this earth) with a capital “I.”
To co-op the very creative and interesting Rod Serling’s opening line to his Golden Age of television program “The Twilight Zone.”
“Imagine, if you will…”
You were born into the age of the world in which it all is swiftly drawing to a close. All the books of world history written by men will no longer matter. There won’t be any men or women writing any more history books, and the only truly true book of history, events and way to live — or die — the Holy Bible will have Its every word fulfilled.
Engineers know that in order for something to sustain stresses, use, the elements, the REALITIES OF EXISTING IN THIS WORLD what they build must be able to flex. To be able to move with what those structures are subjected to. If bridges and buildings and such were built totally rigid — as most people are which have 206 bones, jointed, ligaments, tendons and musculature and skeletal structure which gives them the outward appearance of flexibility — then the structures built by this outwardly flexible people would break. Snap in pieces in the slightest breeze, bridges crash to the earth below as soon as a few vehicles were upon them, or a strong wind or rain showed up.
The irony is the things man builds are built with more flexibility than are men and women ever so rigid in their thinking.
Thusly — “It never has happened so it never will,” or “That isn’t what the history of ____________ has been through the ages so it’ll never change.”
And other totally ignorant not thought through rigid and foolish patterns of what passes for thinking.
I’m going to be as brief and pointed as I can be here.
I mentioned how I used to write fiction at the outset of this commentary. And Rod Serling’s “Imagine, if you will…” For a reason. A most significant reason. I want you to seriously ponder and think. To flex your mind beyond where it usually flexes. In conjunction with every world event you know has taken place in the past 80 years. Along with present day life. Along with what you know from the Holy Scriptures, if you read and are fluent in the Holy Scriptures and not just reading Them as a book, but as the inerrant living Word of God — and then along with this little article of mine than read the article included here below. And flex dear ones, flex and think deeply…because I’m going to embark now here on what may sound like bizarre, unbelievable fiction yet could be very close to the reality that unfolds before us before we turn around three times in this whirlwind daily life lived out on this planet with a very short life span in its present form — and not because of climate change but heart change, mind change, belief change, how people live and think changes.
In this fiction, imagining if you will, are numerous facts. Like those puzzles in which you are instructed to find something in a jumble of images you will hopefully find and know the facts contained herein;
Imagine, if you will, a world in which what once seemed wrong is now deemed right, and what was once known as wrong is now considered as right. A world in which evil things are called good and elevated, praised, revered and worshipped, and the good things are reviled, persecuted and a constant effort made to destroy them.
A world in which the majority of people have turned from God, perverted their beliefs in Who and What God is, corrupted the truth, corrupted the foundations and have worked diligently for the one they work for and serve to totally remove and replace what has been established since the beginning of known human history and recorded history.
A worldwide concerted effort to rewrite, remove and establish their version of history over what the people of the world had known, and knew for thousands of years. The artifacts, the archeology, the science, the facts supporting for thousands of years what had been and was known now replaced due to one thing and one thing only — evil knowing it’s time was short and therefore enlisting legions of its followers to blindly go against all logic, all objectivity, all rational thought, all critical thinking, all established truths and history and CREATE A NEW HISTORY to serve its purpose — which was to lay down a new foundation for the entrance of the son of perdition. The son of Satan who would enter this world physically and seduce, beguile, enslave the entire world save for the true believers of the One True God, not this imposter, this son of the father of lies who calls himself a god and puts himself in place of all gods and the One True God — as the masses, the entire world worships this evil to such a degree they are willing to brand themselves with his name, visibly on their flesh, in their bodies in a sign of allegiance and worship to him, the Beast of the Holy Bible.
As part of all these puzzle pieces falling into place completing the picture as the son of perdition enters is the total and massive corruption of Christianity and Islam to form a new way of believing placing this son of perdition as the savior, the god both those once separate religions now worship — as what once was Christianity, TRUE, GENUINE, BIBLE-BASED Christianity began to erode as far back as the 1950s and swiftly was dominated by ravenous wolves in sheep’s clothing stroking the itching ears with fables for the lost flocks desiring nothing but appeasement and pleasure and to believe how they wanted rather than how they should — and the myriad false teachers within what passed itself off as Christianity obliged them all to the point that by the second decade of the 21st century Christianity for the greater part no longer resembled genuine Bible-based, Bible-believing Christianity that had preceded it for almost 2,000 years.
Talk about rewriting and removing history!
Islam morphs and grows and corrupts and perverts. As does what is called “Christian” and “Christianity.”
Evil abounds and is given higher and higher place and legitimized. Not spoken of or written about for what it is. The people live in massive denial and blindness. The vast majority. And they like it that way. They roll around in the muck and mud of evil like hogs on a hot drought drenched day in the American Midwest on an August day! Loving every minute of their sin, their immorality, amoral ways, hating God and Jesus, loving sin and abomination and not seeing the true enemy, not seeing their eternal deaths lying right before them all.
Imagine, if you will…
no longer fiction.
This is our present reality leading to our swiftly coming near future and thus fulfilling every word, every jot, every tittle within God’s inerrant living Word. Believe it or not. It’s true. Open your eyes and see. Open your ears and hear. Inhale and smell the stench of evil and its lies and death dealing.
World history is Biblical history. Biblical history is world history.
And we are living both and in the last of it as it has been known for thousands of years.
No longer needing to imagine, if you will — just open your eyes and see it all! Hear it all! Smell it all!
Become this kind of know it all!

‘Jesus was a Palestinian’ Platform; Islam’s Plot to Rewrite World History
April 24, 2019
Reprinted from: Breaking Israel News — Latest News Biblical Perspective
Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) history of egregious antisemitic remarks and dismissal of the Islamist 9-11 attacks as “some people who did something” pale in comparison to her most recent comment which, in a subtle but horrific manner, threatens all of Judeo-Christian Western society.
Omar retweeted a New York Times op-ed by Eric V. Copage, which claimed that “Jesus, born in Bethlehem, was most likely a Palestinian man with dark skin.”
“As I grew older, I learned that the fair-skinned, blue-eyed depiction of Jesus has for centuries adorned stained glass windows and altars in churches throughout the United States and Europe,” Copage, who is Black, wrote. “But Jesus, born in Bethlehem, was most likely a Palestinian man with dark skin.”
Although the article was about the historical accuracy of Jesus’ depicted ethnicity (particularly in relation to Church art), white versus person-of-color, this one reference to Jesus’ national allegiance became the focus of media debate. At face value, the claim that Jesus was a Palestinian is anachronistic. Palestinian, as a national identity, has never existed. And Jesus was, by all accounts, a Judean who worshipped the God of Israel.
The claim that Jesus was a person of color is not necessarily accurate. According to Christian tradition, Jesus was descended from the House of David who was the offspring of Ruth the Moabite. Moabites, as the descendants of the crimson Esau, were reportedly red-haired and light-skinned.
Not all indigenous Middle-Easterners, or even all Palestinians, are universally olive-skinned. Ahed Tamimi, who was incarcerated for hitting an IDF soldier, was dubbed “Shirley Temper” for her resemblance to the child actress Shirley Temple who had long blond curls.
In any case, the author’s contention that Jesus was a Palestinian seems absurdly anachronistic when taken at face value. This out-of-time aspect was succinctly explained by The Daily Wire.
The name Palestine for the area that was home of the Jewish people only came into existence after the Romans exiled the bulk of the Jewish people from Judea in the second century A.D., long after the period in which Jesus lived. Eager to erase the Jewish identity to the land, the Roman emperor Hadrian did something that had heretofore been unheard of for the Romans, who never changed the name of provinces: he named the area “Palestina” after the Jews’ ancient enemies, the Philistines. The Philistines had been defeated by King David in his memorable defeat of Goliath; they were again defeated by David’s descendant King Hezekiah. They eventually were completely defeated by the Assyrians and had ceased to exist long before the Jews fought with Rome.
Neither can it be claimed that Jesus was ethnically Palestinian, as was pointed out in a tweet by Noah Pollack, a writer specializing in issues concerning foreign policy, Israel, and the Jewish people.
It seems even more absurd that Ilhan Omar, who is neither a Palestinian nor a Christian, should espouse this theory. It could be that Jesus’ Palestinian identity has been incorporated into the Democratic Party platform.
Reverend William Barber II stated as much in his address to the 2016 Democratic National Convention that was described by the media as “rousing and was well-received.” Rev. Barber referred to Jesus as a “brown-skinned Palestinian Jew.”
If that is the case, then the DNC and Rep. Omar have adopted the credo of Yasser Arafat’s adviser Hanan Ashrawi, a Christian, who said in an interview to the Washington Jewish Week on February 22, 2001, that “Jesus was a Palestinian.”
This became the official PLO platform as evidenced by their frequent reference to Jesus as “the first Palestinian martyr” and whose annual Christmas statement reads, “Every Christmas, Palestine celebrates the birth of one of its own: Jesus.”
Dr. Mordechai Kedar, a senior lecturer in the Department of Arabic at Bar-Ilan University, unpacked Omar’s motives, explaining that they had even greater implications than a simple disagreement over Jesus’ identity.
“Omar is stating that Jesus was Palestinian because he was born in Palestine,” Dr. Kedar told Breaking Israel News. “She believes this to be true for anyone and at any point in history since Palestine has existed since the creation of the world. Therefore, any person who has ever lived here, including all the people described in the Bible and the New Testament, were Palestinians.”
Dr. Kedar called this perception “re-engineered history,” a technique he claims is inherent in Islam and the Arab world, hence, a world-view espoused by Rep. Omar. Although the op-ed re-tweeted by Rep. Omar was a commentary on race, the reference to Jesus’ Palestinian identity resonated so strongly with Muslims that it was reposted in its entirety in The Muslim Times.
“According to their agenda, Palestinian, Arab, and Muslim, all of them are in agreement about their message that all of world history is the story of Islam,” Dr. Kedar said.
Dr. Kedar noted that Islam espouses the methodology of the Nazi propaganda master, Joseph Goebbels who said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” Perhaps, even more disturbing, is the second half of Goebbels credo which states, “It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
“They can re-engineer history for any country, for any people, for any part of history that is not consistent with the Islamic narrative. Muslims who live in America believe that America is an Islamic country with an Islamic history and therefore they belong there, have a greater right to the country and ruling it, than anyone else.”
This seemed to be hinted at in former-President Barack Obama’s address to the Islamic Society of Baltimore inside their mosque in 2016 when he said, “Here’s another fact, Islam has always been part of America.”
Kedar explained how non-Muslims are perceived in Islam.
“Anyone who is monotheistic, anyone throughout history who was monotheistic, is a Muslim,” explained Dr. Kedar. “Even if he considers himself a Jew or a Christian, according to Islam, he is a Muslim by definition.”
Although the Islamic usurping of history is not the official policy of any political party in the U.S., it is the official platform of the Islamic Party of Ontario, a newly registered political party in Canada. Its list of principles includes instating Sharia law and instituting a constitution and principles are based solely on Islamic teachings. Yet in a rather perplexing manner, the party aligns with the left-wing politically correct culture. It promotes homosexual issues while arguing against gender identity calling it “liberal fascism.” This stands in stark contrast to the policies of many Muslim majority nations which follow Islamic law in applying capital punishment to homosexuals.
The party also advocates for universal healthcare and other more socialized government policies described as a “worker partnership economy.”
More in holding with their Muslim beliefs, the party calls for criminalizing the consumption of alcohol and marijuana, acts of adultery, and gambling.
Most perplexing to Canadian voters is the party’s claim “that Islam is the native DEEN (fundamental principle) of Ontario and Canada.
Islamic parties have already entered European governments, with representatives in the parliaments of Sweden and Belgium.
“Ilhan Omar is faithfully representing the Islamic discourse,” Kedar said. “She is not concealing anything. But people are working hard to avoid admitting the simple meaning of her words.”
