If you say you stand for God’s Word, the Bible, then you need to stand for all His words … properly.
The Australian Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) is an Australian libertarian think tank. This video exposes a major flaw in their underlying beliefs and how it undermines its centre-right political credibility.
Western nations should be aware that Russia’s leading political genius, Alexander Dugin, claims to be a prophet. In his “role” as the grand Russian prophet, he has called that NATO should be destroyed.
The Bible explains what is going on in the world today.
“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.” (Daniel 8:23).
Certainly, it is possible for a person have have prophetic gifts. But what power is Dugin utalising to see and proclaim his vision of the future?
Mr Dugin is in fact promoting a Dark Enlightenment, which means, to turn back to pre-Enlightenment, pre-Modern ideas (e.g. traditional religion).
Now, the “dark sentences” of Daniel 8:23 carries the idea of obscurity.
“I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old” (Psalm 78:2). “A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.” (Proverbs 1:5, 6).
In all this we see it is not bad to understand dark things, because there are things of God which have been hidden or little known for many years.
We can become understanding people, people of knowledge, by being opened to the Bible and connecting to the Spirit of God.
People say that Australia is slowly dying, they sigh about the way in which we seem to be heading. The Left-wing machine now has overrun all institutions, including media, education and government. It is having a serious impact onto conservative and traditional community organisations, political parties and churches. Basically, the Left has won.
Today many people won’t speak out about issues because they are afraid to be labelled “Right-wing”. Good people wonder what can be done, now that they are gagged and bound from saying and doing their patriotic and Christian duties.
The Left hypocritically talk about tolerance and make a big deal about freedom, but all the while they deny us, the good citizens, the right to express ourselves and pursue our visions.
This dreadful state of affairs did not come about overnight. It came because it first gained a secure foothold in France with the French Revolution. The Enlightenment, with its war against God, is at the root of today’s Leftist tyranny.
In the 1960s, the Vatican had shifted from being a pro-conservative organisation to a pro-liberal organisation. The same change was evident in the culture throughout Western English-speaking society. We went from a conservative and traditional Right-wing victorious nation to a Left-wing quagmire. Things have been going downhill since.
When the Berlin Wall fell, and when the USSR collapsed, Russia began to turn into a ultra-Right state. The Left-wing garbage in Western nations has kept them from having any real resolve to deal with Russia. And so a new form of post-modern fascism is on the rise there as headed by Alexander Dugin.
In order to deal with the Russian threat, we need to also begin to deal with the Leftist threat within, which is worse than a “fifth column”, but is more like a “sixth column” which encourages apathy in the face of Russian aggression.
The moral bankruptcy within and the inability to seriously deal with problems without are the product of the years of the Left’s corrosion of our religion, nation, politics and culture. The only real solution to this is Christian Exceptionalism. This means a resurgence of Christianity and patriotism. It means waking up from the current stupor and taking responsibility. The Left rule because we didn’t stop them: now we must reassert ourselves and stand for what is right.
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.” (Psalm 33:12).
“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34).
“I AM sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.” (Isaiah 65:1).
Russian demagogue, Alexander Dugin, has virtually made a religion out of the conflict between global continental land power and global sea trading power.
The whole notion of “land power” is nothing but a Russian version of the Third Reich, because, according to geopolitical theory, Eurasia (as ruled by a belligerent Russia) is the central heartland of the great world island landmass comprising of Africa and Europe-Asia. Like that old plan of Czar Peter the Great (now said to be false), if Russia can control Egypt, it can control the world. Today, we know that a stream of trade passes through the Suez Canal, so Egypt is an economic prize for choking “sea power” in geopolitical terms.
But none of this is new.
9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.
The Bible has predicted everything about Russia, the Russian leader and their ambitions. We read about Egypt in Daniel and in Ezekiel 38 & 39. It is clear that the Russians will get that far, and will go into Israel.
Now, is “sea power” evil like Dugin implies? Or is he in fact fast coming against God and His people by rejecting the sea-ward English-speaking Christians?
First, we find that the ships of Chittim are to come against the Eastern Antichrist power. On that basis, the Russians would definitely want to reject “sea power”, which is their enemy.
Next, they would want to reject the power that came against Russia during the Crimean War, i.e. the Protestant British Empire. As Sir Walter Raleigh said, “he that commands the sea, commands the trade, and he that is lord of the trade of the world is lord of the wealth of the world.”
Again, the leading thinker for American naval power, Alfred Thayer Mahan, wrote a Christian book, “The Harvest Within”. Another reason for Russia to both fear American naval power AND their religion.
And again, “Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.” (Isaiah 60:5).
So it makes sense that Dugin would want to make war against “sea power”, because he can make “land power” equal to the self interest of Russian imperial domination.
THE SHIPS OF CHITTIM
In Daniel 11:30 we read that as a precursor to the events described in the rest of the verse and the rest of the chapter, that the “For the ships of Chittim shall come against him”.
This means ships in the Eastern Mediterranean. Now, we have had the news full of a story about 59 missiles that were launched from American ships onto Syria. That mighty hail also has affected the Russians, who are in and backing Syria too.
Potentially this could relate to another Bible prophecy soon at hand, “Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.” (Isaiah 17:1b). Prolonged warfare can do it, like Aleppo. But then there are other options and other players.
There was a debate on homosexual “marriage” while participants drank beer (from a company which was the alleged sponsor of the event) as convened by the Australian Bible Society. The same beer company was also bringing out commemorative beer for the Australian Bible Society.
Something is wrong with this kind of “Christianity”, and something is wrong in Australia.
Certainly, the Australian Bible Society has wandered and reeled far from its origins.
Let’s turn back to an early meeting of the Auxiliary Bible Society of Australia Felix, as reported back in the Melbourne Argus, 7 November 1849. In those days, the King James Bible was THE English Bible.
For long centuries the British people in all their settlements have enjoyed the incomparable blessing. More copies of the Divine Word have been published in our language than in all other tongues combined, and the numbers of the English translation annually issued far surpass those of all the world beside.
This fact demands gratitude to the glorious Author of the Eternal Truth, and should excite in the breast of every Briton, a sense of deep responsibility, demanding a profound regard and practical respect for God’s word and commandment.
In truth, wherever the British tongue is heard there also the British Bible is found, and the servants of God, in this great empire, are concerned that the Bible shall be possessed, and perused, and obeyed, by the people, as the palladium of our liberties, and the instrumental cause of our excellence.
That sounds like a golden age of Australian Christianity. The Scripture prophesies about the current state of Christianity in Australia.
“But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.” (Isaiah 28:7).
In Bible days, the Assyrian Empire came and conquered them. How can we resist Russian aggression if we are not in line with “Temperance”? Step one in this temperance regime is to turn back to the good old King James Bible which made the British Empire great.
The Bible when believed, will make Australia great again. Pretty much people need to get silent and get humble.
“Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.” (Isaiah 41:1).
In the Albert Barnes commentary, we read of God the Father, JEHOVAH. This is from Isaiah chapter 42.
“The chapter may be regarded as divided into two portions. In the first from ver. 1 to ver. 9, the prophet describes the Messiah. JEHOVAH is introduced as speaking, and in vs 1–4 he describes his character. He is the servant of JEHOVAH, endowed with the fulness of the Divine Spirit; meek, and lowly, and gentle, and kind; unobtrusive and noiseless in his movements, and yet securing the conquest of truth. JEHOVAH then, vs 5, 6, 7, addresses the Messiah himself directly, and states the object for which he had appointed him, to be a light to the Gentiles, to open the eyes of the blind, and to be the pledge of the covenant between him and his people.”
The problem is that the modernistic transcriber, someone like Larry Pierce with his digitisation project, took it upon themselves to make corrupt changes to the truth, substituting the name of God “JEHOVAH” with some heathen deity.
“The chapter may be regarded as divided into two portions. In the first Isa 42:1-9, the prophet describes the Messiah. Yahweh is introduced as speaking, and in Isa 42:1-4 he describes his character. He is the servant of Yahweh, endowed with the fullness of the Divine Spirit; meek, and lowly, and gentle, and kind; unobtrusive and noiseless in his movements, and yet securing the conquest of truth. Yahweh then Isa 42:5-7, addresses the Messiah himself directly, and states the object for which he had appointed him, to be a light to the Gentiles, to open the eyes of the blind, and to be the pledge of the covenant between him and his people.”
Albert Barnes wrote “JEHOVAH”, yet modernists have deliberately altered this in the 1980s/90s. We have Bible prophecy in Ezekiel 39 that the name of JEHOVAH will be restored.
A number of times in Revelation it refers to earthquakes. The historical Protestant understanding of Revelation interpreted these to mean revolutions of society and upsetting the political order. Interestingly, with the election of Donald Trump as US President, there have been numerous references to “earthquake” and “quake” in the media.
“And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.
“The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts.
“The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.”
The Gospel’s power and the effects for the future of the Church is to be as a great shaking too.
The morass of filth and spiritual compromise today is being addressed by two adverse powers. One approach is being presented by Alexander Dugin, the other by the Bible believing Spirit-filled Christianity as taught in sincerity and truth.
Dugin, a leading Russian political philosopher, is calling on the power of the Sun (i.e. Helios, the mystical sun) to burn up the “swamp”. (A reference to a Donald Trump description of the American establishment.)
However, the Scripture has laid out its solution to the “lovers of their own selves”, etc. It says, “But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men” (2 Tim. 3:9a). When political correctness, lies and compromised Protestant Christianity comes to its full extant, it can “proceed no further”.
