Put on the Whole Armour of God by James Reed
The majesty and eternity of Christ contrasts sharply with the feet of clay shown by the oppressive New World Order or what is now called globalism. We have seen many victories by the little people against their oppressors, from Brexit and the US electoral victory of Trump to our own Federal Election result.
Our writers have used these events to encourage Australians who are hurting – from farmers, to blue collar workers, to the homeless and unemployed, to also take action and become part of a “Western spring,” a democratic grassroots revolt against the elites. I have some articles torn from The Weekend Australian (November 26-27, 2016), on this exact theme.
One article discussing the “nation’s new fringe-dwellers,” observes that “on the urban edges and in country towns, people are feeling abandoned,” which is surely the understatement of the year. Country people are in a state of economic and social crisis, produced by a system too much devoted to inner-city political correctness issues to address their real needs. And the result of this is that Grievance politics, consuming much of the Western world, is also here in Australia. The driving forces are irresistible.
One of the popular sites that many of us draw on is the patriotic Natural News.com, which took a strong pro-Trump, anti-Clinton position during the US election. But The Washington Post has now claimed that Natural News is working with the Russians to spread lies about Hillary Clinton. And what evidence is given for this? Nothing, it is because they say it is. That is why this year, there has also been a gross loss of trust by many people of the mainstream media, and a great rise in the popularity of the alternative media, including us.
This is a time of great hope. We have seen that the people, when organised can effectively fight back. The ruling elites know this and are now planning to respond back.
We are living in revolutionary times. Survival of the individual best comes from heeding the wise words about protecting oneself from the evil which is flowing over the world like a Noachian deluge (Ephesians 6:10):
“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms”.
Have a well earned rest over the Holy Christmas period, recharge your physical and spiritual batteries, and be ready for the battle of the millennium in 2017.
