I didn’t expect the persecution of American-Christian’s to start this early, but given the timing of current events it’s to no surprise that politics would enter to rear their ugly heads in 2020. This also shouldn’t surprise the most of us as the battle of human principles are currently being waged between “the right” and “the left.” Unfortunately, it’s now happening in California right before our eyes. It should truly be seen as an appropriate event given the times that we are currently living in.
If you are a Christian and you live in the Golden State of California, welcome to church services that can be almost comparable to 6th generation Christians living in the early post-Resurrection times of Jesus Christ. Well maybe not to the exact measurement, but it’s not too far off in actual comparison. To be frank, it’s already hard enough that Americans are having to switch over to ‘drive-in’ church services to compensate for the persecution.
Historian Jennifer Woodruff Tait would write that churches over “later centuries added to this part of the service more and more introductory material, including an introit (service-opening hymn or psalm) and musical settings of the scriptural phrases Kyrie eleison (“Lord have mercy”) and Gloria in excelsis (“Glory to God in the highest”). Much of this was designed as “traveling music” to get everyone in place to begin worship. Further, “acts performed in silence, no matter how essential, always seem to invite verbal or choral accompaniment as if we never quite trust simple action.”
Tait continues on, “The rest of the service grew as well. Psalm-singing became a longer and more elaborate part of the service, and while creedal statements had long been used in the baptismal liturgy, the Nicene Creed came into regular use after the Sunday sermon sometime in the eighth century.”
Singing at church became something traditional as time went on. To completely remove worship from church is an attempt to almost “paralyze” the Christian body. It should be seen as a complete political move to slap Christianity back into the feudalistic days of the Medieval Times. Of course, all of this being done under the cloak and guise of political lies and false pandemics.
Why attack Christians? There are multiple focuses here. The first being the “silent majority” in America do in fact consist of a majority Christian households. Not by much compared to secular America, but still predominant. If you can disrupt the lives of the majority, you can create a rash of social and ethical problems. The typical middle-class American household can not stand morally and ethically if external problems are being created within the home. A great example would be the liberal and Godless mainstream media and it’s proxies (TV, social media, movies). They use common programming (such as Modern Family, CNN, and The View) to manipulate the family from within. False ideas, lies, and gossip. Call it a “trojan horse” if you will.
It’s a social bacteria that has pierced the American heartland, fabricated issue’s that’s been around for some time unfortunately. There is a lot more history to this matter of political and social division. In fact, there is so much information that it would take many books to fill it all in. What I can tell you though, is that it all started at the end of the Civil War and Reconstruction. In fact, the manipulation that was engineered in the shadows of American politics lasted well into the Gilded Age (roughly from 1865 to 1920) and onward until our present day.
At the end of the Civil War, the Union (Republicans - out of complete Christian principle) pardoned all Confederates (Democrats) from any legal prosecution from carrying out open rebellion. Politicians, generals, soldiers, and civilians were pardoned. A majority of those Democratic politicians were allowed to be reinstated with their previous titles left intact (with some restrictions).
During Reconstruction the political stage was being set behind the scenes for a future cataclysm to spark another social reorder. In the Gilded Age, under the disguise of corporate meetings; Democrats, elite individuals, and businesses would collaborate over time to make future ends meet for the betterment of all rouge entities involved. This meant actively participating in the future architecture for preemptive treason. Many of these entities listed were also involved in the transformation of the American public school system—a move that removed God, Christianity, and Creation from the textbooks.
It’s unfortunate that political opponents to traditional America offer up the purposeful attack on Christianity in California. This is completely politicized. Pandemics, domestic terrorist attacks, fires, lock-downs, regulations, policies, and a Governor who’s comparing rightly to pompous historical princes of times past, where the European townsfolk would end up rioting and throwing cabbage and tomatoes at the greedy and insolent elite royalty. 19th century author Mr. Heinzen tells us, "The princes, are the chief authors of all poverty and all distress." Tribulation in Greek means distress under pressure. Also, to hem someone in, or internal pressure that causes someone to feel confined (restricted, "without options”).
It’s obvious that Gavin Newsom and the Democratic party has established California as their far-left liberal stronghold (thanks Pelosi and Newsom!), and that persecuting Christians would be their final move in attacking conservatives nationally. The mob known as BLM is a Marxist organization being spun up to destabilize America. Its an organization that has been pushed and fostered by many Democratic, individual, and left-wing organizations. BLM and other “grassroots movements” are tools for a much larger and devious plan for the American fabric of society. Today, we stand toe to toe, and face to face with evil. We are in a war on principality.
I was listening to C.S.N. Radio on 93.7 FM here in Northern California three days ago, and while I was listening two U.S. Senators had made serious claims that the civil discord and lawlessness that we are experiencing today are absolutely engineered by particular elite’s and groups being funded by far-left sympathizers. They mention it being "Act 1" of an attempted 2nd American Civil War. In the end, they do not want you to have an identity, they do not want you to have an opinion, and they do not want you to have a voice. Ultimately it’s about how valuable you are to the state and to the government in power, much like being a number in George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984.
As for right now, pray for our nation because the next ten years is going to get very difficult for all of us. Stay aware, discern, and be involved in local and national politics. I suggest tuning in to ACLJ.org for information and to make donations. Support Christianity and your peers in the legal fight against American tradition. Stay tuned in to the Word of God. And stay close to your fellow Christians.
