Kingdom Now: Eschatological Error at the Beginning and End of the Church Age

Posted: 10 Nov 2017 11:09 AM PST

Technical jargon created and employed by insiders, while useful and appropriate within a given field of expertise, often has a way of shutting down the conversation whenever such terms are tossed around by “the common folk.” In the case of biblical study, this failure to communicate can be especially disheartening if a new believer encounters a weighty word like dispensationalism or premillennialism, and then decides that it’s too complex and not for them to know.

After all, if the experts can’t agree, what makes me think that I can understand something like eschatology? Does holding to a specific view of eschatology even matter anyway? Sure, I’ll assent to the belief that Christ is coming back, and I know that I’m going to heaven when I die, but what does a thousand-year reign have to do with the here and now?

All good and relevant questions. And if you have asked, or are currently asking, yourself something along these lines, then this post is for you.

For starters, a proper understanding of biblical eschatology [end-times] does matter. Some pastors and teachers may not think that end-time specifics are all that important for life and practice today, but they should reconsider and ponder the implications of this proverb from Solomon’s pen:

The end of a matter is better than its beginning; likewise, patience is better than pride (Eccl. 7:8, NET).
Keep this verse in mind, because there is a strong correlation between a misunderstanding of our current age and a prideful heart. There are those preaching in pulpits today who say that we can have our best lives now. There are pastors teaching that suffering and illness have no place in the daily life of a child of God, and that if you only had enough faith, or if you would just say the right word, then you would be healed and could then receive God’s blessings in full.

My friends and fellow heirs in Christ, we should not be of the opinion that eschatology is a buffet— a free-for-all, whereby we can pick and choose the best option that suits our current lifestyle. A right view of future prophecy matters for life and practice now. Conversely, an errant view is like a deadly disease that goes undetected by the untrained eye and spreads throughout the body if allowed to run its course (see 2 Tim. 2:17-18).

Thankfully, those who have sharpened their senses (Heb. 5:14) can spot this pervasive eschatological error effecting the body of Christ today. One might identify this doctrinal disease in its various strains as: Kingdom Now, Christian Dominionism, Prosperity Theology, etc. I’ll also go one step further and label a couple of soft-forms of “kingdom now” theology: Amillennialism and Post-millennialism.

Regardless of how we label and identify this disease, it’s effect on the true body of Christ has been devastating. And it’s not a recent phenomenon either! We can find traces of the “kingdom now” doctrine all the way through the New Testament, which is largely set in the context of the 1st-century churches in modern day Greece and Turkey.

As you’ll see from this brief study, the eschatological errors plaguing the earliest churches are still alive and well in the 21st century. Eventually, and one day soon, the final and only cure will be to forcefully remove the true body of believers and leave the rest to go into unrelenting judgment and purging by fire.

In short, after reading this post, it is my hope that you will gain a greater appreciation for how one’s eschatology effects their mindset and behavior at the present [i.e. sanctification], for better or for worse. Also, my aim is to inspire those who are eagerly awaiting the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to persevere in suffering now, so that when He appears, you will rejoice and look forward to reigning with our King on the earth in the coming millennium and beyond (Rev. 5:10; 20:4-6; 22:5).



Early Detection in the First Century


“Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little yeast permeates the whole batch of dough?” (1 Cor. 5:6, HCSB).

In order to arrive at a sound interpretation of a verse or passage of Scripture, you have to start with the immediate context of the original author and his audience. One of the most helpful techniques for interpreting epistles, I learned from a professor in the Bible Exposition department at Dallas Seminary.

Dr. Charles Baylis suggests that we should first discover the problem, or problems, which the author addresses in the letter. Usually this is some form of false teaching (bad theology) that has taken hold in one of the churches. The church at Corinth, notorious for its carnality, had its fair share of problems, but most of these issues appear to stem from a single, major misunderstanding about this current age and whether the kingdom of God had come in full or not.

Once you grasp this theological root issue, the whole letter of First Corinthians opens up. The immense knowledge and spiritual gifts given to these new believers in Christ led them to a point where they became prideful and conceited [kinda like a “gifted and talented” teenager who might rebel against his parents after being granted certain freedoms].

A sampling of the background issues that the apostle Paul addresses in the letter include:

1) Some among the Corinthians were questioning the legitimacy of Paul’s apostleship because of his lack of worldly eloquence and how much he was suffering; thus, they deemed themselves to be more “spiritual” because of their own knowledge, wisdom, and prosperity (chapters 1–4).

2) Thinking that the kingdom of God had already arrived on earth, they no longer had the final judgment in view, and so sexual immorality spread and was even celebrated (chapters 5–6).

3) Thinking that they were already “like the angels in heaven” (c.f. Matt. 22:30), some considered the institution of marriage to be irrelevant or outdated (chapter 7).

4) There was an over-emphasis on the miraculous, “speaking in tongues,” and, interestingly enough, a disinterest in prophecy (chapters 12–14; see especially 1 Cor. 14:1, 3, 5).

5) Perhaps most relevant to addressing their “kingdom now” mindset, Paul affirms the necessity for a future bodily resurrection of the dead in Christ, which some were denying (chapter 15).

Do you see how the Corinthians’ false eschatological beliefs affected their daily lives? Anyone care to assert that eschatology isn’t that important or relevant to the present time? Right, it’s just a secondary issue, and we’re all just “prophecy nuts.”

And for good measure, here are some quotations from a few scholarly sources to confirm the strength of this underlying eschatological error within the church at Corinth:

Commentary from Charles Baylis:

These Corinthians had made the same error that many make today in their theology. They had misunderstood the age and the delay of the implementation of the kingdom. Thus they thought that since the age of the Law was gone, and they were in a new age, then they were enjoying the rewards of the kingdom now. Since Paul had explained that they were free from the Law (of the Jews) and everything was done, forgiveness of sins, new life, they thought that they were enjoying the kingdom now in this body. Thus, they denied the future earthly kingdom in a resurrected body, saying that everything was given to them by God…now! This is the kingdom, and they were enjoying its benefits…freedom from authority, law…and they were rewarded with riches, honor…and if they were not rewarded with these items, then they were not spiritual” (“Book of First Corinthians,” pg. 1; to read the rest of his commentary, go here).
Commentary from Benjamin Merkle:

From the evidence found in 1 Corinthians, it appears that the Corinthians were basing their Christianity on an erroneous view of spirituality caused by an embrace of over-realized eschatology. This doctrine affirms that the kingdom of God has come in all its fullness and therefore rejects the notion that the kingdom has ‘not yet’ fully arrived…[t]he influence of over-realized eschatology either directly or indirectly caused most of the problems that Paul seeks to correct in his first epistle to the Corinthians” (“Paul’s Arguments from Creation in 1 Corinthians 11:8-9 and 1 Timothy 2:13-14, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, 528-29).
Commentary from Michael Vlach:

Paul viewed the kingdom reign as future in 1 Corinthians 4 and 6. With 1 Cor. 4:8 he chided the Corinthians for thinking they were reigning already when they were not…in 1 Cor. 6:2-3 he stated that the kingdom reign of the saints involves judging angels, something that clearly was not happening in the present. So even before we arrive at 1 Corinthians 15 Paul already indicated that the kingdom is future” (Premillennialism: Why There Must Be a Future Earthly Kingdom of Jesus, pg. 103).
Ready for a little sanctified sarcasm? In order to get his point across, the apostle Paul gets a little feisty toward this rowdy group that was “puffed up” and “inflated with pride” (1 Cor. 4:6, 18; 8:1). This next passage not only exposes the “kingdom now” error of the Corinthians, it also reveals the apostle’s desire to be reigning with Christ in the coming millennium:

For who makes you so superior? What do you have that you didn’t receive? If, in fact, you did receive it, why do you boast as if you hadn’t received it? You are already full! You are already rich! You have begun to reign as kings without us [the apostles]—and I wish you did reign, so that we could also reign with you! (1 Cor. 4:7-8, HCSB).
Paul’s statement really captures the Corinthian confusion perfectly: They had already begun to reign like kings with no regard for the age to come. And the apostle wishes they were right, because that would mean he, too, would be reigning along with them. But he knows better. The kingdom is yet future (c.f. 1 Cor. 6:9-10 – note the future tense, “…the unjust will not inherit God’s kingdom”).

The Corinthians weren’t the only ones who were “full” and “rich” and living it up as if they already had their crowns. A little ways across the Aegean, you had the Laodiceans…

Terminal in the Twenty-First Century 

“So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of my mouth!” (Rev. 3:16, NET).

In First Corinthians and the book of Revelation, I see some interesting parallels between the underlying beliefs at Corinth and Laodicea. I don’t think it is a stretch at all to say that Laodicea most likely had the same eschatological error as the Corinthians. Echoing Paul’s language in 1 Cor. 4, the Lord Jesus rebukes the church at Laodicea in a similar manner:

For you say, ‘I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked” (Rev. 3:17, ESV).
Compare Jesus’ words with Paul’s statement in 1 Cor. 4:8, “…you are full…you are rich!” The “kingdom now” cancer had spread from Corinth and latched on to the Laodiceans. And since Revelation 2–3 prophetically summarizes the entire Church Age, and given that we are rapidly approaching the conclusion of this age, the current forecast looks grim for the inheritors of the Laodicean legacy.

Christ has no words of commendation for this end-of-the-age church. Prophecy wasn’t welcome in ancient Corinth and Laodicea, and nor is it welcome in the mega-churches of today. Prosperity theology isn’t just an American phenomenon, either. This errant “kingdom now” doctrine that had humble beginnings has now spread all over the world.

Perhaps, we have Roman Catholicism to thank for adopting the false eschatology of the Corinthians, Augustine’s amillennialism, and exporting its “Christian” dominion from Rome to the four corners of the earth. And as stated earlier, the only cure to correct the haughtiness and pride of these last-days “Christian” churches is a swift and surgical removal of the true believing remnant while leaving the remainder to go into the Tribulation (c.f. Rev. 2:22-23; 3:10).

The ironic end of those who identify themselves as “Christian” and say in their hearts, “I am full, I am rich, and I need nothing,” will be the shocking exposure of their spiritual blindness and poverty.

Remember the Solomonic proverb, “The end of a matter is better than its beginning…patience is better than pride” (Eccl. 7:8). In a similar vein, those who correctly understand the times will patiently wait for their King to return. However, those who live like kings in this present evil age (Gal. 1:4) will be sorely disappointed when the King of kings returns and ends their party. They did not learn the principle of “cross before crown,” and they skipped over the last part of verses like Rom. 8:17, “…if indeed we suffer with Him…” and Php. 1:29, “…you should not only believe in Him but also suffer for His sake.”

Continuing with the parallels of First Corinthians and Revelation, I find it interesting that Paul says in 1 Cor. 4:18, “Now some are inflated with pride, as though I were not coming to you” (HCSB). And in the letters to the seven churches in Revelation, we find the same attitude among those who are either asleep (Rev. 3:3), or inflated with pride (Rev. 3:16-17). Both are not expecting the Lord to return.

It’s no coincidence that Jesus identifies himself as “the ruler of God’s creation” to the Laodiceans in his opening address (Rev. 3:14; the Greek word arche can also be translated as “first” and “ruler/principality” in addition to “beginning”). He lets them know right away who’s really in charge. For those in Laodicea who heed His message, they are promised Christ’s throne at His return (Rev. 3:21). Again, not a coincidence.

So, as Paul would say (1 Cor. 4:21), which way would you rather have it? Jesus is coming back soon whether you’re ready or not. Do you want the rod of iron, or gentle staff of the Shepherd? (c.f. Rev. 3:19-20). If you want to escape the Tribulation and be ushered immediately in to the King’s table, then you had better check to see if you are clothed with the King’s righteousness (“What is the gospel?“).

If you are already a believer, clothed with Christ’s righteousness, then I pray that you have your eschatology straight. Hopefully, after reading through this study and traveling from Corinth to Laodicea all the way to our present day at the end of the Church Age, you get the picture. A sound doctrine of the future [eschatology] matters today.

In closing, here are three key takeaways:

1) Premillennialism is a fancy way of saying that you agree with the teaching of Scripture that the kingdom of God has not yet come in its fullness. We still await the return of the Son of God, Son of David to rule on earth from Jerusalem—the duration of this future reign having been disclosed in the last book of the Bible, which the apostle John states explicitly as 1,000 years (Rev. 20:1-10).

2) Though some textbooks, commentaries, preachers and teachers present eschatology as if it were choosing a soup de jour, don’t be fooled. All views are not equally valid, and you have to land somewhere. As shown in the study above, orthodoxy precedes orthopraxy (i.e. right doctrine leads to right practice). Therefore, a correct eschatology should result in faithful obedience to God’s will during this present age [dispensation], which includes suffering for Christ before reigning with Him.

3) Now that you are equipped, help set others free who are trapped in prosperity theology. Minister to those coming out of a “kingdom now” mindset who are reeling from the shipwreck of their faith. Finally, look forward to your future crown without envy for those who call themselves a Christian and yet live like they are already reigning in the millennium.

God, our Father, may your kingdom come, and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. And, come Lord Jesus! Gather us together and get us ready to reign with You!

Amen.

Zionist Agenda to ‘Denuclearize’ Pakistan

 

By Sajjad Shaukat for Veterans Today

Despite the repeated assurances of Pakistan’s military and civil leadership that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons are well-protected and are under tight security arrangements, having well-coordinated command and control system, a deliberate propaganda campaign against the safety of these weapons keeps on going by the US, India and some Western countries who are acting upon the Zionist agenda to ‘denuclearize’ Pakistan.

As regards the security of Pakistan’s nukes, Islamabad has adopted potent measures as part of Nuclear Security Action Plan (NSAP), Mobile Expert Support Teams (MEST) and Nuclear Emergency Management System (NEMS) to respond and manage nuclear emergency and security. Additionally, Strategic Plans Division (SPD) has deputed approximately 25,000 personals to safeguard Pakistan’s nuclear facilities with extensive barriers, detection systems, separate storage of nukes and security system to prevent unauthorized use and to meet international standards of the International Atomic Agency (IAEA).

Pakistan is the only nuclear country with zero incidents of mishap. All other nuclear states have such incidents on their credit, including US having maximum incidents of nuclear negligence.

Terrorist’s organizations do not have any access to the Pakistan’s nuclear assets. Pakistan’s security measures to protect nuclear assets against internal and external threats are among the best in the world.

Despite extensive safeguards in place, Pakistan’s nuclear activities are still considered unsafe by the US-Indo-Israeli-Western lobbies which have been propagating that the possibility of nuclear assets could go into the hands of terrorists. It is a pre-planned idea just to target Pakistan’s national security.

It is notable that in 2009 when the heavily-armed Taliban entered Pakistan’s towns of Swat, Dir and Buner, Zionist-led American high officials and their media had exaggerated the ‘Talibinisation’ of whole Pakistan, while showing concerns about country’s atomic arms. In that context, on April 22, 2009, the then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had said that Taliban “advances pose “an existential threat” to Pakistan, while on April 23, 2009, she had warned that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons could fall into the hands of terrorists.

When Pakistan’s armed forces ejected the Taliban insurgents out of Swat, Dir and Buner by breaking their backbone—capturing many militants, then, American high officials had admired the capabilities of Pak Army.

Similarly, when militants had attacked on Pakistan’s Naval Airbase in Karachi on May 23, 2011, Zionist-led US and some Western countries, including India and Israel exploited the situation by spreading disinformation about the security of Pak nukes.

In this regard, on June 9, 2011, the ex-US Defence Secretary and CIA Chief Leon Panetta told a US Senate committee, “There is a danger of nuclear weapons of Pakistan, falling into hands of terrorists.”

On May 24, 2011, the head of NATO in Afghanistan, Anders Fogh Rasmussen also said that he was confident that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons were safe, but stated that security had become a matter of concern, the day after the worst assault on a Pakistani military base.

Speaking in the tone of the US-led West, on May 25, 2011, the then Indian Defence Minister AK Antony misperceived that India was “concerned about the safety of Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal after a group of terrorists laid siege to a heavily guarded naval air base…Naturally it is a concern not only for us but for everybody our services are taking all precautions and are ready round-the-clock”.

Likewise, on August 20, 2012, terrorists’ assault on Kamra Airbase Base was successfully foiled by the personnel of Pakistan Air Force, but, a baseless report, published in the New York Times on the same day indicated that suspected militants attacked a major Pakistani Air Force base where some of the country’s nuclear weapons were considered to be stored in the early hours of the militants’ attack. The report also presumed, “The base is part of Pakistan s nuclear stockpile, estimated to include at least 100 warheads.”

It is mentionable that being the only nuclear country in the Islamic World, Pakistan was already on the hit-list of the US, India and Israel, including some Western countries. Based in Afghanistan, American CIA, Indian RAW, Israeli Mossad and British MI6 which have well-established their covert networks there and are well-penetrated in the terrorist outfits like the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and their affiliated Taliban groups are using their terrorists to destabilize Pakistan by arranging the subversive activities such as target killings, suicide attacks, hostage-takings, sectarian and ethnic violence in various cities of the country. Now, these foreign entities have also started backing the Islamic State group (Also known as Daesh, ISIS, ISIL) in order to weaken Pakistan through terrorist acts.

While, Pakistan’s Armed Forces have successfully broken the backbone of the foreign-backed terrorists by the military operations Zarb-e-Azb and Radd-ul-Fasaad. Army and top intelligence agency ISI have broken the network of these terrorist groups by capturing several militants, while thwarting a number of terror attempts. Peace has been restored in various regions of Pakistan.

But, these Zionist-controlled foreign elements have, again, started terror attacks in Pakistan to show that nuclear weapons of the country are insecure.

Overtly, American high officials remark that they seek stability in Pakistan, but covertly, they continue to destabilize it to obtain the illegitimate interests of Israel.

Taking cognizance of the anti-Pakistan developments, Iran’s former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had disclosed on June 7, 2011 that there was “accurate information…Americans are to sabotage Pakistan’s nuclear facilities to find dominance over the country.” While, also indicating Zionist regime was behind the conspiracy, he elaborated that for this purpose, the US can also use “the United Nations Security Council and some other international organisations as tools to exercise pressure on Pakistan and weaken its national integrity.”

It is noteworthy that Indian nuclear weapons and their related-material are unprotected, as various cases of smuggling and theft have verified.

In July 1998, India’s Central Bureau of Investigation seized eight kg. of nuclear material from Arun, an engineer in Chennai, including two other engineers. It was reported that the uranium was stolen from an atomic research center. On November 7, 2000, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) indicated that Indian police had seized 57 pounds of uranium and arrested two men for illicit trafficking of radioactive material. IAEA said that Indian civil nuclear facilities were vulnerable to thefts.

On January 26, 2003, CNN disclosed that Indian company, NEC Engineers Private Ltd. shipped 10 consignments to Iraq, containing highly sensitive equipment including titanium vessels and centrifugal pumps. Indian investigators acknowledged that the company falsified customs documents to get its shipments out of India. On June 12, 2004, Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation, an American company was fined US $ 300,000 for exporting a nuclear component to the Bhaba Atomic Research Center in India.

In December 2005, United States imposed sanctions on two Indian firms for selling missile goods and chemical arms material to a Muslim country in violation of India’s commitment to prevent proliferation. In the same year, Indian scientists, Dr. Surendar and Y S R Prasad had been blacklisted by the US due to their involvement in nuclear theft. In December, 2006, container packed with radioactive material had been stolen from an Indian fortified research atomic facility near Mumbai.

However, owing to the collaboration of the officials with smugglers, proliferation of nuclear components and their related-material has continued from time to time by India.

In fact, the US President Barack Obama’s contradictory approach which has resulted into failure of America’s external policy in the Middle East has been meeting the same fate in South Asia. Recall that on September 25, 2008, Obama, while accusing President Bush’s policies in the region, offered it as part of his policy to encourage India and Pakistan to ratify the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) and resolve the Kashmir problem to reduce nuclear dangers in South Asia and militancy in the region.

Quite contrary to his commitments, during his first visit to New Delhi, on November 6, 2010 President Obama announced the measures, America would take regarding removal of Indian space and defence companies from a restricted “entities list”, and supported Indian demand for a permanent seat in the UN Security Council including membership of four key global nuclear nonproliferation regimes.

And as part of the double standards, America set aside the Indian poor record regarding the safety of nuclear weapons and materials. Despite, Indian violations of various international agreements and its refusal to sign Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) and Additional Protocol with the IAEA, Washington signed a pact of nuclear civil technology with New Delhi in 2008. During American President Barack Obama’s second visit to India, on January 25, 2016, the US and India announced a breakthrough on the pact which would allow American companies to supply New Delhi with civilian nuclear technology.

America also pressurized IAEA and the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) to grant a waiver to New Delhi for obtaining civil nuclear trade on larger scale.

Under the pretext of countering China, Washington has continued favouring India’s programme of advancement and modernization of nuclear weapons.

Evidences indicate that India has not fulfilled the conditions of the NSG waiver. At least, eight of India’s nuclear reactors are outside safeguards which are a big question mark on the credibility of its nuclear safety and security standards. Two reports from the King’s College –respectively titled ‘India’s Nuclear Exceptionalism’ and ‘India’s Strategic Nuclear and Missile Program’ also claim that India has already accumulated nuclear material for over 2600 nuclear weapons, including all of its unsafeguarded reactor-grade plutonium, which is weapon-usable, and raised concerns over this stockpiling.

Nevertheless, arms deals with America, which include nuclear submarine and drone sales to New Delhi would increase Indian hegemonic designs in the region. And NSG’s membership of India will create concerns for regional strategic stability.

Besides obtaining atomic weapons from the US and other Western countries, New Delhi is, clandestinely, importing nuclear arms, components and submarines from Tel Aviv. In this connection, Zionist-led Indo-Israeli secret diplomacy could be assessed from the interview of Israel’s ambassador to India, Mark Sofer, published in the Indian weekly Outlook on February 18, 2008. Regarding India’s defense arrangements with Tel Aviv, Sofer had surprisingly revealed, “We do have a defense relationship with India, and “with all due respect, the secret part will remain a secret.”

It is worth-mentioning that President Obama had hosted the fourth Nuclear Security Summit in Washington on March 31, 2016 to check the spread of nuclear weapons, showing concerns about the ambitions of terrorist groups such as the ISIS in acquiring a nuclear weapon or radioactive material. The US President Donald Trump had taken a different stand in his interview with the CNN by stating, “More nuclear weapons could make the world safer…US can no longer afford to bankroll the defense of its allies in Europe, Asia and the Middle East…Japan, South Korea and Saudi Arabia may need arsenals to confront threats in their region on their own.”

Once, the power-theorist, Henry Kissinger had stated that true diplomacy runs in the barrel of gun. This is what Trump is determined to follow not only by increasing American nuclear arsenal, but also encouraging India and other countries like Israel in this respect.

Notably, from the very beginning, the CIA kept eye on the nuclear programme of Pakistan, which was taken as a threat to Zionists, Israel and India. In this context, in an interview to a private TV channel on April 4, 2010, the former deputy chief of the US mission in Islamabad Gerald Feuerstein disclosed, “He was a witness to the meeting between former premier Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and former US secretary of state Henry Kissinger in Lahore in August 1976…Kissinger came with a carrot and stick…since US elections were near and the Democrats were set to win them and wanted a tougher non-proliferation approach and might make Pakistan an example…Bhutto rejected the warning to disband Pakistan’s nuclear programme.”

Afterwards, Bhutto’s government was toppled in 1977 by a CIA-backed coup of Chief of Army Staff Gen. Zia-ul-Haq who hanged him through the court, which is still considered a judicial murder in Pakistan.

It is of particular attention that before the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a deliberate disinformation campaign was launched by the CIA, Mossad and MI6 all over the world that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destructions (WMDs). For that sinister aim, these agencies also funded and used some American and Western media. In that connection, a self-fabricated report was prepared by CIA about Iraq. Afterwards, Iraq was attacked and occupied by the Anglo-American forces, but no WMDs were found. As a matter of fact, under the cover, main aim of the United States was to occupy the oil resources of that country and to obtain the political, economic and religious goals of the Zionist Jews.

We should remember that a well-coordinated campaign was also launched by the Zionist-led these entities about the atomic arsenal of the former Soviet Union when violent protests had taken place in various states and republics of that country. But nuclear weapons of the former Russia remained in safe custody.

Now, without bothering for internal backlash, the Zionist-led America has accelerated its pressure on Islamabad by insisting upon its old maximum to ‘do more’ against the militants of Al Qaeda, ISIS and Taliban. Thus, by creating unrest in Pakistan, Washington wants to show to the Western countries that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons are insecure and the same can fall into the hands of the militants of Al Qaeda and Taliban or ISIS, who can use these fatal arms inside Europe and American homeland. Under the pretext, the US and its Western allies will ask Islamabad to rollback its nuclear programme and to hand over its all nuclear assets to Washington.

Nonetheless, at present, strained relations exists between Islamabad and Washington, as the latter is implementing double game against Pakistan by sponsoring terrorism. Hence, Pakistan’s reliable online sources suggest that the US, India and some Western powers, who are acting upon the Zionist agenda to ‘denuclearize’ Pakistan, are likely to accelerate their propaganda campaign regarding the security of Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal.

I’m Optimistic About Harveygate

November 11, 2017

(Some of the accused)
 
My colleague Tim Fitzpatrick tweeted yesterday, 
“Is the overarching reason why all these sex scandals 
are coming out now due to some anti-male agenda 
for the long term?”
These scandals might do some good. 
The collapse of this sexual system of oppression
could undermine Freemasonry, our veiled political tyranny. 
 
 
by Henry Makow Ph.D. 
 
There may be an “anti-male agenda” behind these sex scandals but they threaten a power structure that depends on sexual decadence
and blackmail.
Sexual harassment in the entertainment industry has been tolerated for a long time because the perpetrators were considered
untouchable. This is no longer the case as the careers of men like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Louis CK have been destroyed overnight.
This sexual exploitation and oppression mirror and overlap the political oppression of society by the Illuminati (Freemasonry, Organized Jewry).
Often it is the same people.
The dam burst when two Illuminati house organs The New Yorker and the New York Times broke ranks with the other msm and published the  allegations of numerous women. (Reporter Ronan Farrow had a motivation. He has accused Woody Allen of preying on his sister Dylan when she was six.)
Sexual decadence is both a requirement for membership in the Illuminati and a means by which the Illuminati controls its members. However, this decadence might spread to many Illuminati pawns functioning in politics and government as well. This might be the beginning of a societal cleansing and a swing back to morality.
There is nothing “anti-male” about prohibiting sexual exploitation based on a position of power. Women are plenty approachable
on a civilized basis.
 
DISCERNMENT
Harveygate has given rise to dozens of accusations ranging from unwanted groping to rape dating back decades. The latest is directed at George Takei from 36 years ago!  (For Chrissakes, this is what gays do!) We will be inundated with these stories unless we focus on this key question, “Is this man (or woman) a sexual predator now, or recently? Is there a long-term pattern?” 
In the case of Harvey Weinstein or Kevin Spacey, the answer is clearly yes.
I have no use for liberal comedian Louis CK, or his new movie “I Love You Daddy.” (When did filthy become synonymous with funny?) However, if after exposing himself to two female comedians 16 years ago, has he reformed?  If he hasn’t, he deserves his fate.

Lolita.jpg

If Judge Roy Moore fondled a 14-year-old girl almost four decades ago, that certainly is reprehensible. He denies he ever knew this woman. It is quite possible that the CIA-owned and run Washington Post concocted this story. After all their false flags, this would be a piece of cake. The Washington Post is the Deep State.
But for argument’s sake, say they didn’t. People make mistakes over a lifetime. They change and deserve a second chance. Moore is not being accused of rape. We know the Washington Post cares nothing about the harm done to this girl’s innocence. These allegations are all about the balance of power. Liberals are “outraged” by Moore but in favor of teaching much younger children about “fisting” in public school. They praise Lolita (1962) as a work of art. Liberals are hypocrites. They only care about sex crimes when they can incriminate an opponent. The Democratic Party elite assaults children on a regular basis.
Pedophilia seems to be the last taboo. That’s good but I expect it is only because the Illuminati use it to worship Satan and to control their rank and file.
I am sanguine because the Internet allows for instant worldwide communication. More Illuminati crimes will be exposed and more deviants will be removed. Women cowered before sexual predators. We all cower before political predators of a worse kind. Maybe they will be exposed in the same way.
