This Subtle Brainwashing

Never before has the world faced the lockdowns and Covid restrictions we are experiencing, but no-one asks, “Why?”

Why, in this modern age have we had to fall back on the biblical command of  quarantine to stem this pandemic?  Maybe we should have taken more note of the penalty  God promised  if we failed to keep His Commandments and  Laws,   Deuteronomy 28:15, 60-61,  “But if you will not obey the voice of the LORD your God or be careful to do all his commandments and his statutes that I command you today, then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you……       And he will bring upon you again all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you. The LORD will afflict you with every sickness and plague there is, even those not mentioned in this Book of Instruction, until you are destroyed.”

The instigator of this brainwashing is the ‘prince of the power of the air’, Ephesians 2:2,  ‘in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,’  and he uses that power to reach into our lives through the  media of TV and Radio, as w ell as by other methods, turning people from God’s way to his way, by gradually reversing good and evil, right and wrong.  Isaiah 5:20, ‘Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!’

Ironically, one of his main instruments is our own ABC, as is the BBC in England. One would think that the CEO of the ABC here in OZ, Ita Buttrose, would have got the message by now from all those who complain that the service, for which we pay, is dominated by the progressives, the left wing, and the greens. I cannot think of one conservative commentator on the ABC or BSB, (Viceland) except the odd one on ‘Countrywide’!

One letter writer to the press, an ex ABC reporter for more than a quarter of a century, wrote:    “The ABC’s first chairman, Richard Boyer, defined its role. “It is our hope that national broadcasting may stand solid and serene in the middle of national life, running no campaign, but presenting the issues freely and fearlessly for the calm judgement of our people.”

The writer continued,  “Instead we have a decent into trivia, value judgements and loaded adjectives inserted into facts, with free rein given to undisciplined performers to ride their hobby-horses to death.  All the ABC needs is to return to first principles. That means strong editorial discipline to insist its guidelines are met.”

Another summed this brainwashing up:  “Twenty -five years ago the ABC was highly respected across the nation, its political coverage was considered centrist,  its interviews were tough but fair, its commentary balanced. Most importantly,  it didn’t take positions  on social or economic issues. Those days are long gone.  In the ABC today all issues  are approached from a green-left perspective. It’s there in every part of the organisation, not just political reporting.”

Daily brainwashing works, and our nations are paying the covid penalty. If we don’t learn to control the ABC it will get worse as perversion and evil are presented as the norm through comment, subject matter and visual emphasis! Waken up Ita!

China, Oh China!

It is ironic that we associate China with the dragon, because there is a dragon who is God’s great enemy, and that dragon is determined to destroy mankind. ‘Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.’  Revelation 12:7. This is yet future, but only just.

Of course China has no idea that they are being beguiled by that dragon to help unseat God and destroy His plan for mankind, but that is what is happening, and you can guess who will be the losers, including a great army from the East totalling 200 million!.. Revelation 9:16, The number of mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand; I heard their number.’!!!

 You guessed right. The dragon is Satan, and He will rejoice to see many more that die in defeat at Armageddon, but from those figures we can gather that China is not going to change its ways as a bare faced bully. We can learn from this that Australia and the West are facing a Chinese threat, the like of which has not been seen since the 1930’s. Unashamed expansionism, coerciveness, refusal to abide by accepted legal and economic rules, cyber theft, and a total lack of respect fo the human rights of smaller nations, while criticising those who dare to call out these things, does not bode well for world peace.

It was only with the advent of Trump, with his forceful bluntness, unpredictability and willingness to ignore convention that the Chinese met their match. They will rejoice to see Biden replace him.

In a recent stand-off in the Himalayas between China  and India, the Chinese military had no qualms about showing their true colours, by using microwave weapons to force Indian troops to retreat. “We solved the problem beautifully” bragged one Chinese professor, and “turned the mountain tops into a microwave oven, ‘ he said. “In 15 minutes those occupying the hilltops all began to vomit.”

Obviously, the Chinese leaders will not think twice about using any weapon to gain what they want and what they want is pre-eminence over ALL nations. Sound familiar? Why was China so keen to install the ‘Belt and Road’ infrastructure leading west into Europe, and its bases in the ‘South China  Sea’,  while the nations repeat the mistakes  of the 1930’s and do nothing?

Revelation 9:13-19   ‘Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, were released to kill a third of mankind. The number of mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand; I heard their number. And this is how I saw the horses in my vision and those who rode them: they wore breastplates the colour of fire and of sapphire and of sulphur  and the heads of the horses were like lions’ heads, and fire and smoke and sulphur came out of their mouths. By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed, by the fire and smoke and sulfur coming out of their mouths. For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails, for their tails are like serpents with heads, and by means of them they wound.’ 

Cf. Revelation 16:12.

Take a look at China’s coal fired ‘steam trains from Hell’ at steam engines from Hell.   Ominous.

The Progressives’ Error

You may have noticed  the increasingly common use of the word  ‘progressive’ as it is claimed by many who feel they should lead society. It is no co-incidence that most claiming to be progressive,  are of the left – the Greens, the media,  the ABC, though they repeatedly and fraudulently claim to represent the interests  and beliefs of the majority.

Anyone who is not “progressive” must, in their eyes be inherently stupid or uneducated, unable to see  the obvious need for government action to correct past history, and the wrongs  of our ignorant forebears.

It is not surprising  then  that God is not in favour of this radical activism – in fact He wants us to do just the opposite!

Jeremiah 6:16,’This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ He wants us to think twice before entertaining such ‘progressive’ ideas, Proverbs 14:12, ‘There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.’

It should not be too hard to recognise that such ideas  are divisive rather than harmonious and often are accompanied by anger and violence, as we saw in the ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests. In fact,  most of the causes espoused by the progressives stem from political correctness, the foundation of the ‘woke’ elite, and we know where that came from.   (Article 13, page 1)

For thousands of years our ancestors accepted the moral standards of God’s word. In the last just 70 years we have rejected those standards and claim to be progressive. We are in for the biggest shock the world has ever seen, as God’s  warning is projected into the minds of every man and woman on Earth, in the most graphic form, in just one day. To ignore that warning would cost your life, but 90% will be progressive enough to disbelieve.

Isaiah 6:13, ‘”And though a tenth remains in the land, it will again be laid waste. But as the terebinth and oak leave stumps when they are cut down, so the holy seed will be the stump in the land.”
