Chapter 20—part 1: Rise of the Stone Kingdom (continued)
Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom, part 60—Part review; part new
Hello, again! For the record, this lecture was initially presented October 8th, 2011 at the Stone Kingdom Bible Conference held in St. Louis, Missouri. We were at the Millennium Hotel within walking distance of the landmark St. Louis arch.
So, while at the Conference, we saw it spiritually as reminding us that we are “under the arch,” so to speak, which to us, symbolizes God’s rainbow covenant (with Noah). Hence, we call it “the Arch of the Covenant.”
For the sake of those attending the Conference who were not familiar with my series, I took the opportunity to provide a short introduction to what I had been teaching over the course of many months. We will then pick from where we left off in the previous lecture/chapter.
We are in a rather lengthy series of studies entitled Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom, two topics of which most Christians are entirely ignorant. This lecture will be #20 in the series.
In its simplest sense, this series is really about government. Specifically, it is about whose government we are going to have, man’s or God’s. The first four lectures dealt with a study of governmental systems in general, and focusing on the popular understanding of the left-wing, right-wing political spectrum.
We demonstrated how it is a false and bogus concept which keeps people from understanding what is truly going on vis a vis our continuing loss of freedoms. Let me give just one example, which many in this audience, I am sure, have been aware of for a long time, but which was probably shocking to many ordinary Americans when Megan Kelly broke the story on King Herod’s TV network a week or two ago.
What did Bruggeman say?! King Herod’s network? What is that? Well, didn’t Jesus refer to Herod as a fox? ... when He said: Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected. (Luke 13:32)
Anyhow, Megan Kelly was a guest on Fox’s O’Reilly Factor and was telling how people with General Motors-built vehicles that are equipped with On-Star have discovered that they are being spied upon! Well, hellooooo...Surprise, surprise! You mean, you actually believed that the On-star system was only for the purpose of summoning help in an emergency!
As I am sure this audience knows, the system also works superbly as a Big Brother device. It not only tracks your location, and all sorts of other information—such as how fast you drive, whether you’re wearing seat belts or not—but it also can be turned on remotely and all your supposedly private conversations can be heard by those with the means to “borrow” the On-star system.
Ms. Kelly reported on how shocked former On-star customers were to learn that even after they cancelled the program and quit paying the fees for the service, that On-star kept right on gathering information, and presumably their conversations, if they so chose. Even when the vehicle was sold, the new owner would have been blissfully unaware that he or she was being spied upon.
Those of you who are on our CD Ministry will recall that we saw how Micah 4:11 was fulfilled in a national sense, how foreign powers all seek to spy on us—the verse that reads:
Micah 4:11 Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion.
But in a personal and individual sense, it is saying: let our high-tech eyes spy upon the citizens of Zion. So may I suggest that the Mystery Babylonians who have captured the gates of Zion, the gates of New Jerusalem, also are fulfilling this verse, in that we are being spied upon...
- in our vehicles,
- by means of our cell phones,
- by means of utility companies who monitor your energy usage,
- by means of credit cards,
- by means of your supermarket loyalty cards which thereby monitors what groceries you buy,
- by social network sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.,
- and certainly we are spied upon in countless ways through the internet in general: Google/Gmail, YouTube, Amazon purchases/downloads, etc.
Of course, the inter-net is sometimes still called the world wide web. And the arachnids of Mystery Babylon’s New World Order certainly intend to capture all the world in their web, or in the net.
But then, they know not the thoughts of the Lord, for He explained this to us in one of the parables of America, which we have been showing is, in fact, the kingdom of heaven. Jesus said:
Matthew 13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
Has that been fulfilled? I don’t think so. Therefore, we see the invention of the inter-NET at the perfect time in history. (Since this lecture was presented, I more recently presented many lectures expounding the kingdom parables in Matthew 13, including three lectures on Decoding the Parable of the (Inter-) Net.)
Speaking of the Fox Network, did you know that the word “fox” in the singular only appears twice in the Bible? Given that we are studying the stone kingdom, I thought the other occurrence of the word was very intriguing as well. It is found in the book of Nehemiah.
You will recall that the book of Nehemiah is all about rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem. If we look at it from a type and shadow perspective, we see it is about New Jerusalem as well; i.e., the Stone Kingdom.
Nehemiah had to deal with any number of people who came against him and tried to stop him and his fellow Judahites from rebuilding the walls
Nehemiah 4:3 Now Tobiah the Ammonite was by him, and he said, Even that which they build, if a fox go up, he shall even break down their stone wall.
As you know, the Fox Network is by far the most popular among the cable networks. Why? Because it comes closest to resonating with the good instincts of the American people. Fox tells us that it is fair and balanced in their news reporting. And it certainly is much more so than the far leftist CNN, MSNBC, NPR, and three dinosaur networks, CBS, ABC and NBC.
But astute observers of politics and the media realize that Fox is merely the Hegelian dialectical opposition, the controlled opposition. Conservatives, be discerning! Fox is a network where many neo-conservatives and RINO’s are in management (RINO Paul Ryan now sits on the board), and ownership is in the hands of the Rupert Murdoch family.
Thankfully, there are still some Constitutional conservatives on the opinion side of Fox News who have not yet been silenced. They include Tucker Carlson, Lou Dobbs, Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and a few others.
So is the Fox Network secretly trying to break down the “stone walls” (Christ, the apostles and believers of all ages) of the Stone Kingdom? ...of New Jerusalem? If you study the book of Nehemiah, you will see how some of the opponents of the Judahites pretended to be on their side and desiring to help build the walls.
As it turned out, it was all a trick to sabotage from within. We could dissect the symbolism of Nehemiah 4:3 for an hour, but we must get back on track here.
After we devoted the first several lectures to discussing government in general, we then spent a number of lectures expounding the 2nd and 7th chapters of Daniel—in fact, we are still expounding on them—but God gave Daniel to understand how a series of empires would span many centuries.
This would be to teach man that no matter what form of government man may devise, man cannot govern himself. God saved the best empire for last. About two and a half centuries ago, He caused our Founding Fathers to give this incipiently great nation a form of government called a republic—not a democracy, mind you, but a republic.
(Oh, how it annoys me to even hear Tucker, Hannity and others often refer to our government as a democracy or a democratic republic. No, it was formed as a Constitutional Republic, period. The founders loathed democracies!)
Our heavenly Father gave us a Constitution with a Bill of Rights, which was the best government man had yet devised, a government which enabled the citizens to have more freedoms and liberties than man had ever known.
And our forefathers here took advantage of that freedom and by the grace of God built this nation into the greatest nation the world has ever seen. We have been so blest! Indeed, America, “God shed his grace on thee!” (To be continued.)
