In establishing a new precursor to partnerships with the Antichrist, his workers of iniquity continue to pave that way for his arrival and worship.
By an executive order, President Obama has surpassed the existing faith-based intrusions into religious freedom, which were baited by access to federal funds, and inaugurated an office to be empowered to make incursions into every neighborhood household in the land. As of February 5, 2009, the new White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships (FBNP) began efforts at taking control of all religious organizations, and dictating what religious tenets are legal, and which are to be outlawed. The goal is for all churches to eventually be nationalized, and placed under the provisional license of the federal government. This sweeping federal oversight is being ushered in under pretense averting an economic catastrophe.
Partnerships: In Community
These new faith-based and neighborhood partnerships are only a precursor to the formation of a new state religion, with world power, that Satan will use to his advantage for first half the tribulation period. He desires to be worshiped, and even said to Jesus: “If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine” (Luk 4:7). Eventually he will, as Antichrist, have his hour; “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Rev 13:8). The religious leaders who are working to forge these partnerships are preparing the way. They represent a select group within the world’s population who are left behind when God turns his attention on refining Israel, and judging ungodliness. They will be dealt with separately and more severely during that period, and upon the Lord’s return to earth:
And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. (Jud 1:14-15; emphasis added)
These ungodly are destined to congregate in a coming world church that is described in the book of Revelation, chapter seventeen, as Mystery Babylon. While the true Church will not see its final formation, this foreshadowing will continue in its increase as an enveloping darkness until the end of the age. Consequently, the Church will see escalating persecution as it is marginalized out of the congealing state religion. Under the original faith-based program the capture was congregation by congregation, wherein many dissenters could go unmolested. By adding neighborhoods to the church-government partnerships accountability reaches down to the household level. The implications for families and individuals are hard to over emphasize.
When the newly fashioned church bells toll in neighborhoods everywhere it will mean “we need all hands on deck, ” as Obama puts it,10 so that they may bow before the new potentate, and swear their allegiance to the new green religion of “saving our planet”.11 Those not willing to renounce Christ, not willing to have their faith based in everyone else’s faith in order to do the real work of this new ministry, are going to be labeled heretics. Anyone not standing at the curb saluting the passing PBS van and listening to their instructions for community service over the loudspeaker will be dealt with swiftly. In the not too distant future, the van will be followed by trailer on which will be mounted a guillotine.12
While no one knows the day or the hour when the White House Office of FBNP will be absorbed by the United Nations, or other world governing body, to act as enforcer of the coming world religion for Antichrist, fangs are showing over at the Justice Department.
In a speech to Justice Department employees decrying unresolved racial issues, new Attorney General Eric Holder lambasted Americans as a “nation of cowards,”13 and demeaned them for having private lives and personal pursuits outside the work place. Reportedly, “Holder said the workplace is largely integrated but Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives.”14 These are not careless remarks, but evidence of carefully designed strategy.
Of course, Americans are not cowards, and any Attorney General holding that view disqualifies himself for service. Holder is willing to bet that he won’t get ousted from his office by the outcry over his remarks of disdain for his countrymen on the hopes that Americans will be cowering on at least two fronts. As the first black Attorney General, Holder is gambling on the fear people will have of being called a racist for criticizing him for calling Americans cowards and racists. He is also riding in on the wave of the new collaborative.
After years of groundwork laid by communitarians in the work place, and apostates in the worship place, Americans by and large are ‘in community’ under some Soviet hierarchy somewhere. They are increasingly being attached in their private lives during evenings and on weekends by employers who are both secular and faith-based. A charge that can now strike terror in many a small group gathering, who are in community, is not being in authentic community. This state is reached only by members continually divulging secretes about themselves in the form of confessions on the pretense of identifying and dealing with their inadequacies as a process of perfecting themselves in the incubus of the group; and which then allows the group to attain the coveted seal transparency. Implicit in the word “authentic” is not only that it be genuine, but also that it be authorized. The Attorney General has his sights set on the private lives of Americans to assess them, and to grant or withhold the federal seal of authenticity based on their activity in federally approved associations and pursuits.
