There is an old saying: That would never happen here.
What if all those things we thought would never happen here were happening to us now? What if all those things in the Bible that even many Christians dismiss are also coming to pass?
As Americans living in the land of the free and the home of the brave, we have watched scores upon scores of uprisings, coups, wars, assassinations, mass violence, riots, and other events happen in nations around the world. We have watched as these nations’ leaders committed atrocities upon their own citizens. However, we were not affected by these things; after all, they were happening on the other side of the world. Yes, in fairness, our government has sometimes rightly intervened with aid or military help. Still, we have felt as though all those evils could never touch us – until September 11, 2001.
It is hard to believe that this infamous day was nearly 20 years ago! For the first few years following those attacks by Islamic terrorists, Americans seemed suddenly awake to the fact that we can indeed be attacked from our enemies. Despite our pride and certainty that we are the greatest of all countries, the Lord’s hand of protection was temporarily lifted allowing us to be vulnerable. This indeed was a wake-up call. But sadly, we Americans have short memories.
In many ways, we have become even more arrogant, or blind, than we were in 2001. Far too many indeed have forgotten that awful time. Perhaps worse is that now, far too many Americans have become sheeple that need a shepherd/protector to take care of them. That shepherd has become the government, on all levels. But what happens if this “shepherd” doesn’t have the best interests of “the sheep” at heart?
Sheep tend to stay together in a group. Indeed, if the shepherd is not around to protect them, there is some protection for them by being flocked together. And the sheep at the head of the flock is the one that alerts the others that danger is imminent. So, while there is some truth that there is safety in numbers, what if the head of the group is not alert enough to warn of the dangers, or intentionally keeps the truth from the other sheep? And of course, the same can be said of the shepherd. What if he is too ignorant to see the danger to the flock and fails to act on their behalf. Or what if the shepherd really means harm to the sheep? (Observe black communities) I submit that all the various “flocks” of sheeple in America have been led astray by both ignorant and evil-intentioned “shepherds.” What if, instead of trusting the flock around us, and the shepherds, we ourselves investigated our surroundings and were always on alert to danger? It is called personal responsibility. Hmmm…
Worse yet is that many of these shepherds are in government offices and are those that We the Sheeple have put in said offices. They mean us harm, not good. They do NOT have our best interests in mind. In fact, I sincerely believe that like ravenous wolves, these people want to devour us!
Since the beginning of the year, our president has been impeached; riots, akin to those from the 1960’s, are erupting around the nation; and anarchists are terrorizing, even burning cities, with approval of local leadership! Things that even I did not believe would happen until the biblical Last Days are now happening, and amazingly, happening to us all at once! Prophecy teacher John Haller calls this a “convergence of events.”
So then, what do these events tell us?
We the Sheeple, the majority, have been led astray, lied to, coerced, bribed, and tricked. For those causing mayhem in our streets, the same manipulation has happened to them. The difference is that they agree with their “shepherds” who are creating the madness. Behind street-level mayhem are powerful American enemies like billionaire George Soros, who alone has multiple organizations that pay people to instigate violence and chaos. There are race baiters and socialist/communist forces within the ranks of our government—look at the Congressional Black and Progressive caucuses. Then groups like BLM and Antifa are egged on by all these forces, and race baiters and shakedown artists the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
For those who think that all the violence is from “grassroots” local citizens, do some research. Even in my state of Indiana, BLM activists were recently bussed from city to city to cause mayhem. When New York rioting began, there were news reports of people being transported from the West Coast to join the fray.
Marxist forces and methods are being utilized by all the anarchists, including the governmental forces not enforcing law and order, but encouraging mayhem. A
major influence is Saul Alinsky and his book, Rules for Radicals. I would call this work the methods/tactics of warfare. The actual goal is to destroy America, which is illustrated by a strategy put forth in 1966 by socialists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven:
The Cloward-Piven Strategy to Collapse America:
- Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people. HAPPENING NOW
- Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live. HAPPENING NOW
- Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty. HAPPENING NOW
- Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state. HAPPENING NOW
- Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives. (Food, Housing, and Income) HAPPENING NOW
- Education – Take control of what people read and listen to, and to take control of what children learn in school. ALREADY DONE
- Religion – Remove the belief in God from the Government and schools. ALREADY DONE
- Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor. HAPPENING NOW
Government response to Coronavirus in America is the ideal vessel for our government at all levels to utilize Cloward-Piven to overwhelm the system—a system already overloaded through decades upon decades of corrupt government officials at all levels “feathering their own beds” instead of caring for their constituents. And instead of kicking-out all the scoundrels from their cushy positions, we re-elected them. But then, the corruption is so great that it is nearly impossible to find honest people to run against those who only get more powerful, more corrupt the longer they are in office. Oh, did I mention more rich? Money buys power! Thus, those in office for decades for the most part, own their positions.
Regarding the medical side of the current crisis, Americans are being forced to do things that violate our constitutional rights. But unconstitutional and overreaching “emergency” statutes are being used to give carte blanche to governments at all levels.
Of course, there is the period in which governors all around the country did another thing we have NEVER seen happen in America: the total shutdown of all schools, businesses, and churches, and the lockdown of “non-essential” citizens within our own homes. Then government decided what businesses it deemed “essential.” There were and are continuing food shortages in many areas, a shortage of coinage, massive unemployment. How about the manipulation of numbers in so-called testing to keep people locked down?
In short, We the Sheeple are not being told the truth, and are being controlled by a tyrannical government. John Whitehead calls it: “One Nation Under House Arrest.” We thought we had rights…thought we elected people who would serve us…thought government was our friend…thought the Constitution protected us…thought a coup against us would never happen.
We have found our rights change at the whim of the governing authority; that in general, elected officials only serve themselves; that the Constitution has been tossed, and the Courts now make laws instead of interpreting THE LAW of the Land; and that we are in the middle of a communist-style coup, a takeover.
There is more to learn and discuss about this coup, our response, and the future as written in end-times prophecy. In the meantime, let us stop being sheeple and seek truth. Forget MSM, even most on Fox. Go on the Web and/or YouTube to find people who tell truth. I suggest John Moore (the Liberty Man), the Hagmann Report, Greg Hunter (USA Watchdog), and Glenn Beck (Blaze) are good places to start. We can also pray that God open our eyes and show us His Truth, and what we need to do. He will guide us if we humbly seek Him. Until next time, to anyone willing to hear….© Madeline Crabb
