The New Normal-And It’s Not Good

newnormal

This is a new America and that’s not a good thing. One nation under God? Not anymore. Land of the free? No. Freedom of speech? Association? Peaceable assembly? No, no, no. We have criminalized the law abiding and innocent. 

Those who deface property are hailed as virtuous. Those who try to stop the property destruction are now charged with ‘hate crime’ laws. White protestors scream racial slurs at black officers they are violently attacking in this upside down world while supposedly protesting racism. We have gun control laws that disarm law abiding citizens while the criminals have no difficulty obtaining their weapons. Rioters can shut down highways without fear of arrest, while commuters trying to escape would be murderers smashing windows and shooting into their vehicles are charged with “assault”. Those defending their homes have their weapons confiscated and are charged with a crime instead of the violent trespassers. 

Dictators brutalize their cities and states. Hordes of activists marching shoulder to shoulder can defy social distancing with gushing praise from left-wing medical “experts,” while anti-lockdown and anti-mask citizens are decried as a public health menace. Citizens who get too close to others or don’t wear a mask face snitch hotlines, fines, house arrest, or jail time. Meanwhile prisoners are released in mass while churchgoers are fined or harrassed for assembling. Citizen militia protecting their communities are labeled racist and extremist.

Churches meetings are banned. Worship is banned. House bible studies are banned. Churches are attacked and set on fire. Ankle bracelets are placed on citizens by contact tracers. Children are traumatically removed from their parents home to go to state isolation centers for weeks because because of possible virus exposure. What is evil is called good and what is good is called evil. 

Isaiah 5:20 – Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness,

Police officials confirm it’s too high of a price to pay to protect innocent law abiding citizens’ constitutional rights due to the horrible consequences of the mob. The same people who champion the killing of countless unborn are touting themselves as “virtuous” for wearing a mask or social distancing. The governor who sent sick people to nursing homes resulting in mass fatalities is being called the “model” response. Next will be vaccines and property seizures. If you don’t take the mandatory vaccine you will be excluded from society. You won’t be able to work, buy, or sell. Then as they attempt to creepily mimic or create the mark of the beast they wonder why people might resist the masks or vaccines as they “cause everyone” to take these measures.

Revelation 16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave,5 to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, 17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.

We lost the culture war. In a godless culture they elevate evil over good and the creation rejects the creator. 

2 Timothy 3 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good,treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power

Just as in Isaiah’s time there is no justice in the land. 

Isaiah 59:15b-16a The Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice. 16 He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no one to intercede

Neither the citizens nor the police are standing up to the tyranny. If a remnant is spared in North America perhaps it will be those who repent of their sins and seek God.

Romans 3:12 – All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.”

Romans 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Acts 2:21 – And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’

Escaping The Bolshevik Revolution Part 2

Redoctober

My grandmother’s Russian Mennonite family members and their colony fled just before the horrors of the bolshevik revolution in Russia. What an incredible decision that turned out to be! The civil war that ensued killed 10 million people and 56 million more were slaughtered once they assumed power. We have family diaries, letters, and writings that give us a window into the agonizing decision to leave behind their land, prosperity, and wealth in Russia. We are at a time in America that resembles the early stages of the bolshevik revolution and thought I would share a piece of history that Americans can learn from.

At one time Russia was referred to as Holy Russia because of how many churches it had and mennonites enjoyed prosperity there. While that colony escaped the danger before it was too late many did not. The mennonites who stayed behind suffered a terrible fate and most were murdered or starved. Clergy were executed, families/children were killed, women raped, and mennonite men were used as human shields in armed conflict by the marxist revolutionaries. Survivors were desperate to escape Russia. One group of 217 mennonites made a daring escape into China across a frozen river in the freezing cold. The rural mennonite towns/communities were raided, looted, and destroyed. Thousands fled or attempted to flee Russia. There is an interesting side note about a brief moment of abandoning pacifism and a mennonite militia of 3,000 formed to defend their people during the worst of the violence. It lasted a year before they were over run. 

Some similarities from 2020 America to this time in Russia. You might be surprised to know that Antifa, BLM marxist leaders, and socialist presidential campaigns have openly quoted and idolized the Bolshevik revolution and their brutal methods of overthrow. Cancel culture of “denunciation” is a marxist strategy that killed millions of Russian citizens. America’s cancel culture is now rampant as we have cancelled anything not loyal enough. Riots. Looting. Setting fires. Encouraging Violent Protests. Tearing down statues and monuments. Removal of any Christian influence on education. Attacks on churches and religious freedom. Socialist ideas gain popularity. Government intrusion into everyday life. Restriction on basic rights. Hatred of conservative Christian values, capitalism, and democracy. Forcible seizure of property. Created their own alternative Bolshevik police called the Cheka that carried out violence and brutality. Now we have a movement of defunding the police with the same goal in mind. They used perceived or real social injustices as reasons for their violence. Their leaders were known criminals.

We are at the stage where revolutionary ideas are becoming violent revolutionary actions. This promise of a utopian society resulted in 66 million dead in Russia. I hope and pray American’s don’t suffer this fate. This is a look at what led to the agonizing decision to leave their successful communities and homes in Russia.

The Mennonite colony became alarmed at government intrusion around 1870 and sent a delegation of 12 men to the US in 1874 to scout out the possibility of immigration options. They made many contingency plans in case things in Russia worsened. The reports of the United States were favorable. However, the US was across an ocean and the prospects of leaving their successful communities was not appealing. The colony stayed intact for a while longer in Russia. By 1881 the Russian government took action as they began regulating and intruding in Mennonite schools. Russification efforts then liken to today’s indoctrination efforts at our educational institutions proved to be a huge turning point. These were some of the other concerns that led to them fleeing in time.

  1. Warnings from groups such as foreign soldiers who were in Russia prior to revolution. The Mennonites spoke German and were warned by these soldiers that the Russian peasants resented any German presence and they would rise up and Mennonites would be an immediate target because they spoke German and were property owners. In America we should heed who the threats are towards right now. Police, the constitution, political opposition to the revolution, churches, Christians, and business owners.
  2. Infringement on religious freedom. That was a huge red flag for the Mennonites and should be for us as well.
  3. Mennonites wanted complete control over their own educational system, but had lost the ability to do that. The Bible was used as the curriculum and they spoke low dutch. The Bible has long been removed from American schools although we do retain home school and private school rights. When Russia mandated schools had to teach all subjects in Russian this was an attack on their religious instruction, instruction materials, and culture.
  4. The revolutionary ideas of redistribution of wealth was gaining traction. During the Bolshevik revolution property owners were killed and property seized and taken. This included mobs, riots, and looting of those businesses. Mennonites farmers who remained were easily targeted and their property and livestock was seized. Those who left saw the danger ahead in what would become known as marxist or communist ideology. 

The colony decided to leave Russia. Incredibly, we have a daily diary of this 5 year brutal trek out of Russia that eventually landed in the United States where they once again found freedom. The Mennonites didn’t do everything right but many of them did recognize the danger and threats to their communities and planned accordingly. They did not sacrifice their convictions and beliefs about religious freedom and right to educate themselves. When facing a choice of losing their identity/beliefs or losing their wealth they chose to give up their wealth. 

Already we are seeing American’s fleeing states with harsh lockdown orders, restrictions on religious freedom, restrictions on civil liberties, etc. Colorado is seeing an exodus due to the threat of legislative forced vaccines which would violate many religious convictions. There are those who resist on safety grounds but in case you don’t know why people resist vaccines on religious grounds this is why. Many vaccines development including the all the current potential Covid 19 vaccines being developed use human aborted fetal cells. If vaccines could be developed ethically (which they can-they just choose not to) and without aborted fetal tissue (and without a scary microchip) we could see less resistance to them. It comes back to this incompatible view on when life begins.

NY, California, and Michigan are already seeing exits as well. Nationwide people are starting to flee public education either fearing indoctrination or an education system so altered by the pandemic they choose something else. Colleges are expecting declining enrollment. The environment in America is becoming ominously similar to that of Russia prior to the Bolshevik revolution. We live in such a time of prosperity it’s hard to take any threats or dangers seriously much like the Mennonites who enjoyed prosperity in Russia.

The fundamental principle of the American experiment in rights given to citizens that include altering or abolishing government or laws that are not aligned with those constitutional rights. Those who wish to exercise their rights are now being persecuted, arrested, restricted, and suppressed. That is tyranny and this is an attempted constitutional overthrow that has potential to descend into more violence and a civil war like Russia. Moderate democrats and social justice groups should recognize the forces that are hijacking their movements.

Maybe we can avoid a similar fate with strong constitutional civil activism or peaceful alternatives like ideological succession and returning sovereignty to the states where people can migrate to a government that fits them. Otherwise the ideological divide is already too great and it’s hard to see optimism in the American future.
