Re: Magog and Unity

"For you have turned justice into poison, and the fruit of righteousness
into wormwood, those rejoicing for nothing; who say, Have we not taken
horns [power/authority] to ourselves by our own strength?" (Amos6:12b-13)

Earlier this year (04-26-01) we observed satan claiming usurpation of
Jesus' attributes in the mantra, "I am darkness, become the way... the
truth... the life" from the weekly episode of TV's Andromeda. They were
also boasting that the "serpent" had "saved" paradise.

Last spring's cliff-hanger had the Andromeda overrun by invading Magog,
with all the crew either captured and infested with Magog larvae, or
injured and 'down'. This season's opener (10-6-01) sees everybody
rescued, and the ship limps through a slip-stream to a safer distance.

These Magog, when depicted as an entire civilization, are portrayed as
every embodiment of evil... like the devil himself, and all his demons,
as whatever the world would envision "hell" being like.

The closing comments and thoughts by the now-recovering crew, are 
regarding the "necessity" to step up their campaign to form their huge
intergalactic "commonwealth" coalition of species/civilizations to work 
together to rid themselves of the Magog menace. That nobody will be 
able to win against the marauding Magog individually... that it will 
require the collective resources and efforts of everybody "united".

Well, I'll tell you, the timing of this episode couldn't be more 
'perfect' to current events. The message of the episode, the very same
message coming from the world leaders. If a person sees all these
various things, from all venues, coalescing almost as though with a
united front, a united message and purpose, one realizes they are all
being orchestrated by the "world's rulers, of the darkness of this age,
[the] spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies." (Eph6:12)

The Star Trek series, of course, abhorred the concept of the existence
of the Most High God. Andromeda doesn't even make mention of God,
except through the mouth of the resident 'converted' Magog, who 
continually speaks of "the divine". This "divine", however, resembles 
the "divine" that today's world's united religions worship. That 
nebulous "god" of everybody's own individual imaginations and 
perceptions, which actually comes from within each and every one of us.
I find it rather symbolic that it is the Magog (the impersonation of a 
demon) that continually speaks of this "divine". If anybody has eyes 
open, the world is actually proclaiming the truth of its one-world
religion, and its source. And yet, so many are deceived into thinking
it is "christian"!

And so, now, briefly to the main point of this Portion. They are saying 
that all the humanoid species must "unite" and by their own efforts 
combine a massive enough force to defeat the evil. Isn't that what is 
going on today? By the time you read this, what will have become of the 
attacks against the Taliban?  At any rate, the US "christian" president
is on a campaign.  As he said, this campaign has now "defined" his
presidency. It is his primary current mission. Amassing a huge
coalition of nations to "rid the world of evil". Russia (the world's
Scripturally prophesied "Magog") is now also becoming part of this
coalition. And -MAN-, by his own coalitionist efforts, is going to
fight, what in reality, is the evil hosts of the heavenlies.

All-the-while, as our opening passage states, justice and righteousness
has been perverted. The unborn are hideously murdered at a rate that
would make even Islamic terrorists blush. The sodomite/lesbian
"lifestyles" have grown exponentially; and if anybody merely calls it
"wrong" (free speech), not even making any threatening overtures,
today's "justice" calls it "hate speech". Such "hate" must be stamped
out!!

Now here's a conundrum: How, pray tell, is an evil society going to
"rid the world of evil" on their own strength? As we have noted before,
if a coalition which includes Muslims is setting about to rid the world
of Islamic-inspired terrorism, how can they possibly win? They are
fighting against themselves.

Well, what they are doing, to divert their attentions from this
conflicting reality, is trying to force Israel to give up her God-given
land to allow the terrorists to form a "Palestinian State". God said to
Israel, "The land shall not ever be sold, for the land is Mine; for you
are strangers and sojourners with Me." (Lev25;23)  When the
impossibility of their strategy faces them, "the kings of the earth set 
themselves, and the rulers plot together, against Jehovah and against 
His anointed...  [Israel]" (Ps2:2)

But in "their own strength" they shall fall. If satan is fighting 
against satan, his kingdom "cannot stand" (Mk3:26) That's the thing, 
they (including the US leader of this coalition) don't know the Lord.

They boast in their own abilities. The reality of the situation is that 
they "..have made a covenant with death, And with Sheol [they] are in 
agreement. When the overflowing scourge passes through, [they say] It
will not come to us, For we have made lies our refuge, And under
falsehood we have hidden ourselves." (Is28:15)

But God says, "Do not let the wise glory in his wisdom, nor let the
mighty glory in his might; do not let the rich glory in his riches; but
let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me,
that I am Jehovah, doing kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the
earth; for in these I delight, says Jehovah." (Jer9:23-24)

Amen!
