I am deeply concerned by the activities of the world leaders at this crucial time in world history. Some very interesting comments have been made about the situation, but perhaps the most telling is this simple satire from Terry Jones of Monty Python. Perhaps given this satire we might be able to see more clearly the ridiculous way in which this most serious matter is being handled.
I would like to emphasise from the start that this work is in no way supporting one or another side of this bizarre and warmongering process. I will proceed to explain how perilously close we are to the fascist pre-war Nazi system and the East German post-war Communist system taking over our institutions. But first the article:
Terry Jones (of Monty Python fame) Sunday January 26, 2003
The Observer. England.
"I'm really excited by George Bush's latest reason for bombing Iraq: he's running out of patience. And so am I! For some time now I've been really [annoyed] with Mr Johnson, who lives a couple of doors down the street.
Well, him and Mr Patel, who runs the health food shop. They both give me queer
looks, and I'm sure Mr Johnson is planning something nasty for me, but so far
I haven't been able to discover what. I've been round to his
place a few times to see what he's up to, but he's got everything well hidden.
That's how devious he is. As for Mr Patel, don't ask me how I know, I just know - from very good sources - that he is, in reality, a Mass Murderer. I have leafleted the street telling them that if we don't act first, he'll pick us off one by one.
Some of my neighbours say, if I've got proof, why don't I go to the police? But that's simply ridiculous. The police will say that they need evidence of a crime with which to charge my neighbours.
They'll come up with endless red tape and quibbling about the rights and wrongs of a pre-emptive strike and all the while Mr. Johnson will be finalising his plans to do terrible things to me, while Mr. Patel will be secretly murdering people.
Since I'm the only one in the street with a decent range of automatic firearms, I reckon it's up to me to keep the peace.
But until recently that's been a little difficult. Now, however, George W. Bush has made it clear that all I need to do is run out of patience, and then I can wade in and do whatever I want!
That's why I want to blow up Mr Johnson's garage and kill his wife and children.
Strike first! That'll teach him a lesson. Then he'll leave us in peace and stop
peering at me in that totally unacceptable way. Mr Bush
makes it clear that all he needs to know before bombing Iraq is that Saddam is a really nasty man and that he has weapons of mass destruction - even if no one can find them. I'm certain I've just as much justification for
killing Mr Johnson's wife and children as Mr Bush has for bombing Iraq.
Mr. Johnson and Mr Patel are just the tip of the iceberg. There are dozens
of other people in the street who I don't like, and who - quite frankly - look
at me in odd ways. No one will be really safe until I've wiped them
all out. My wife says I might be going too far but I tell her I'm simply using the same logic as the President of the United States. That shuts her up.
Like Mr Bush, I've run out of patience, and if that's a good enough reason
for the President, it's good enough for me. I'm going to give the whole street
two weeks - no, 10 days - to come out in the open and hand over all aliens and
interplanetary hijackers, galactic outlaws and interstellar terrorist masterminds,
and if they don't hand them
over nicely and say 'Thank you', I'm going to bomb the entire street to kingdom come. It's just as sane as what George W. Bush is proposing -and, in contrast to what he's intending, my policy will destroy only one street.
You know you're on shaky ground when a member of Monty Python adopts your
Now this bizarre piece of reasoning strikes at the logic of what is happening among our leaders at present.
We are familiar with the declarations of Hitler and the posturing of UK’s Neville Chamberlain, when they both said they wanted "peace in our time" but what Hitler meant was that he wanted a little piece of Poland and a little piece of France and a little piece of everywhere else as "Living Room." This was able to happen because the League of Nations formed after WWI was ineffective and hamstrung by silly agendas among the nations that formed and governed it and under unequal treaties imposed by the victors of WWI. It led inexorably to WWII.
I have watched as we are told silly and inane things from elected leaders and posturing would be UN leaders, like Nelson Mandela of South Africa. He has recently made silly and unhelpful comments regarding the racist nature of the US, regarding the fact that the head of the UN is run by a black man. Mr. Mandela, in case you haven’t noticed, the UN has not been run by a white Secretary General for some time and that is not the reason at all. Last time I looked, the US Secretary of State was black. The posturing merely suits the racist agenda unfolding in Sub-Saharan Africa at present. But who elected Mr. Mandela anyway to lead anything at present? Has he not noticed that Iraq has poisoned its own people and committed atrocities in vast numbers? Who cleared minefields with women and children and why is not Saddam Hussein before the UN War Crimes Commission? But where does this disgraceful behaviour start and end?
Madeline Albright was shown on TV being confronted with the fact, that half a million children and another half million civilians, had died in Iraq as a result of the UN’s failure to complete the initial invasion of Iraq, and simply withdrew and imposed sanctions on Iraq. That was allegedly: "acceptable collateral damage" in the US view.
How do those figures stack up against the three thousand odd killed in New York? What is the problem with the UN? The ANZUS treaty at Article 1 says that Australia, New Zealand and the US cannot go to war under the treaty without a declaration by the UN. The Australian Prime Minster has just faced a vote of no confidence in the Australian Senate, because of his handling of this matter. Australia is now advertising among its people for an informer system, as is the USA.. Effectively we are saying: Let’s ring up and dob in Mrs Bloggs from Afghanistan and send all those Iraqi refugees back. They will be safe when we bomb and if they’re not, its not our fault. They all look suspicious anyway.
What are the obligations of Europe and the west and how is Islam contributing to the disintegration of its own infrastructure? Who is at fault or are they all at fault? Why is Africa such a shambles despite its wealth? Why is Mandela not speaking out against the immorality and degeneration that is killing the African people instead of poking sticks at the US?
Why is the UN at odds with Britain and America? The answer lies in the agenda of the Eastern nations and the coming problems in the Pacific. A failure of the UN to deal with Iraq will see a further failure to deal with North Korea in the eyes of the Pacific nations and Britain.
The US and the ANZUS alliance and Britain under the Five Nation Pact of Southeast Asia cannot defeat China in a conventional war. It is inevitable that the conflict will turn nuclear. The US has already announced that fact by declaring that it has targeted five nations with nuclear weapons namely Russia, China, Iraq, Iran and North Korea. The old diplomatic clichés used to say that: "My enemies’ enemy is my friend" and as we know "necessity makes strange bedfellows."
I once spoke at a function and addressed the problem of the erosion of British Common Law by this European union, based on the Code Napoleon in Europe and how that would destroy what we have worked so hard to achieve. I overheard a service officer telling another to produce a report on me. Why? The answer was that they no longer see national unity and the protection of our system of law as the main objective. They see the UN as their commanders and UN objectives overriding the national system of law that governs us.
The problem now is that the objectives of the US and Britain are being resisted by other nations, who see endless conflict coming out of this new structure in Iraq. Once the attacks go into Iraq then the wars will escalate into the central steppes. Iran will fill whatever vacuum is created and the US and BC alliance may find themselves with a tar baby they cannot handle. The Bible says that we will go into the East and North from Jerusalem and that this last war will continue now for a long time and until the return of Christ. We told the world where we would be in 2001 in the paper The Last Thirty Years: The Final Struggle (No. 219) and also with Global Warming and Bible Prophecy (No. 218) both of which were released in Tabernacles 1997. We are now in the Wars of the End or WWIII and it will last a very long time and kill a very large number of people.
We are now facing the strange procedures adopted by the Nazis and the East
German spy systems. We are trying and seemingly succeeding, in developing a
spy society and a snitch mentality among our people. This monolith as a UN system,
will try to come together and control the world. The real problem is who will
control it? As usual the armchair generals are keen to start wars about which
they have no idea. There is an inherent flaw in the structure of the UN, which
will see the kings of the east fracture and this machine will rule for only
a short time and its aim with people like the African nations and Asia, is to
get rid of the power of the English speaking people.
There will be war with Islam because the messages being sent out by the Trinitarian ministry in the US and from the Vatican, is anti-Islam and anti-Unitarian. The message arises from the profound ignorance of the people espousing it. The propaganda is very devious but effective. The war against terror is being set up as an anti-Islam movement. Islam will be progressively alienated from the Christian societies and forced into armed conflict. It will inevitably ally itself with China and the east, as it did in the days of the Mongol Yuan dynasty. It is said that the program is not anti-Islam, but it is so inept one has to view the propaganda as deliberately aimed at that point. We know that the aim of the European religious system is, and has always been, aimed at that point.
In December 1932 the German SA handed over the first concentration camp system to the Luthern Church Diaconate at Hamburg. The documents and details are on the site www.holocaustrevealed.org. The Lutheran Nazis, which included large numbers of ministers and nuns, developed a system of badges and the Roman Catholics also took this up in the east. They had an upside down dark blue triangle, which was to indicate "bibelforschers" or "Bible Researchers." This system is still on display at Mauthausen Concentration Camp in Austria. The Trinitarian Christians systematically eliminated these people. The elimination of the Churches of God was the main objective as it had been in the Inquisitions. In the east we were classed as Jews, because we kept the Food laws and the Sabbaths, New Moons and Holy Days. The difference appears in the records as this. The ones that were actual Jews were gassed and then burnt, or shot and burnt. The Christians of the Church of God appear to have been burnt alive. And the records show sections of people classed as Jews being burnt alive, while other Jews were gassed or shot and then burnt. This barbaric practice was in accordance with a directive of the Roman Catholic Church from the Council of Genoa, following the Third Lateran Council of 1179, in which the Churches of God were condemned. That directive is still in existence and the last time the Roman Catholic and Anglican churches put it into practice was in 1994 in Rwanda, after they removed the Tutsi and entrenched the Hutu, and then compiled lists of the victims and paid the killing squads to exterminate the masses. When I was in Brussels three nuns were on trial for genocide as they carried the petrol cans for the squads to douse the buildings in which the men, women and children had sought refuge. When I was in Rwanda they arrested one of the bishops and charged him with genocide. The Trinitarians of all persuasions helped. Even the Seventh Day Adventists placed their newfound Trinitarianism over the Sabbath and helped the Catholics and Anglicans kill their "opponents." There are bishops in gaol along with the nuns found guilty and the SDAs and on it goes. The thing we find amazing is that it appears they would do it again if they could, and we have had complaints from our ministry about it.
We have actually had it put to us in a court of law recently by a Trinitarian lawyer, that one of our children would be disadvantaged because they did not have the benefit of an Easter Parade. She obviously either knows nothing about the history of the Church and the Quartodeciman disputes, which split us from what became the Roman Church in 192 CE, or she is biased. The history of these matters is found in the paper The Quartodeciman Disputes (No. 277) and the history of the Church and persecutions are in the paper Role of the Fourth Commandment in the Historical Sabbath-keeping Churches of God (No. 170).
What sort of a mentality would suggest that a Jew’s children were somehow deprived because they kept the Passover and they missed out on an Easter Parade. Easter was introduced to Christianity in Rome in 154-192 CE to mimic the festival of a pagan god Attis and the goddess Easter, or Astarte, or Istar, so forbidden by the Bible. Yet that is what has been done, with the stolen generations in Australia, and not only with the Aboriginals, but also with the Jews in Europe and our people all over the world. In spite of the ratification of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which under Article 18 guarantees freedom of religious belief, these arguments are being advanced even now in Australian courts of law. They can only be advanced because of a loophole in the constitution of Australia, which prevents the Commonwealth from passing any law for the establishment of any religion.
Section 116 of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia states:
"The Commonwealth shall not make any law for establishing any religion, or for imposing any religious observance, or for prohibiting the free exercise of any religion, and no religious test shall be required as a qualification for any office or public trust under the Commonwealth."
Yet, in spite of this clear directive the states were left with the power to legislate for religious purposes and the protection provided by the constitution was negated by the courts, based on a statement by one of the people involved in the drafting and the desire to leave the states with the power to legislate as they did. This latent desire to kill those who do not agree with you is, strangely enough, usually only confined to the people who actually follow biblical law. This view has been seen most often in Europe, where the desire to kill non-Trinitarians has been most prolific.
What then, is our view regarding the freedom of religion, given what God has said?
The capacity to act outside the Law of God was introduced deliberately in the Garden of Eden and with the fall of Adam the first jubilee from that fall, namely the commencement in 3974/3 BCE, saw the cursed earth and the breaking of the nexus of the Law by the god of this world. That nexus of the law will not be restored until the Witnesses get here. Does that mean that freedom of religion will vanish? No! What it means is that the consequence of breach of God’s Law will become visible and immediate. For example, if a nation does not send its representatives to Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles, in accordance with Zechariah 14:16-19, they will get no rain in due season and they will suffer the plagues of Egypt. The same will apply if they do not keep the Sabbaths and New Moons in accordance with Isaiah 66:23. It will become obvious what God requires and the Blessings and the Curses of the Law will become obvious (see the paper The Blessings and the Curses (No. 75)). At present it is not obvious because Satan has deliberately misled us and weakened the nations. At the return of Christ the nations will see first hand what is required of them and what benefits accrue. Also the world will see, as science finally pinpoints the benefits of the Food laws (see the paper The Food laws (No. 15), how the planet benefits when we keep God’s Laws and eat only what He says to eat. The food chain will be destroyed by our stupidity in the Last Days and our wars will pollute the planet. Christ will restore it.
Global Warming will also change our system. Soon we will produce a map of the effects of Global Warming and the Wars of the End. It is not a pretty sight.
The simple premise of our conduct and faith is that the Bible is the inspired word of God and Law, and that Scripture cannot be broken (Jn. 10:34-35).
How then do we help these nations? The answer is to pray for our leaders and
pray that they come to understand. The Psalms instruct us to pursue peace. The
nations do not know the way of peace. At present the nations do not appear to
want peace. Psalm 120 tells us to cry to the Lord in our distress. Deliver us
from lying lips and a deceitful tongue. It is the deceitful tongue that will
be rebuked with the warrior’s sharp arrows and the glowing coals of the broom
tree. In other words they will face war. "Woe is me that I sojourn in Meschech
and that I dwell among the tents of Kedar. Too long have I had my dwelling among
those who hate peace. I am for peace but when I speak they are for war! (Psalm.
120:5-7). This psalm was written about the wars in the northeast of Jerusalem
amongst Meshech and also in the tents of Kedar. It will be a long wearying time
as David says it was.
The Empire of the Beast will consume many and in the end meet its end alone with none to help it. The kings of the east will be no aid and they will then be brought down to the valley of decision and broken by Messiah.
It is though our faith and our loyalty over the Sanctification and the Passover that will help our people and the entire world. Pray for those that hate you and despitefully use you. Give thanks in all things.
Love one another as God and Christ love us.
