Donald Trump Makes News Again!

Trump Appoints Judge KavanaghEffective 9:05 pm EST, President Trump presented to the world his next Supreme Court Justice to serve in a lifetime position, till he dies or opts to retire.  Judge Brett Kavanagh, much to the chagrin of the liberals in America:  https://www.ncronline.org/news/politics/5-faith-facts-trump-s-supreme-court-pick-brett-kavanaugh

Kavanagh comes in as a replacement Roman Catholic to outgoing Catholic, Kennedy, retaining a Roman Catholic majority of 6 to 3 Jews.  Kavanagh is not only a Roman Catholic but a Jesuit, by training, and lectures at a Jesuit university today.  Jesuits are proverbial for one thing—death to the Protestant Reformation.  This has been successfully achieved under the first Jesuit Pope, Francis, on October 31, 2017.

“Since the court’s inception in 1789, there have been 91 Protestant judges named out of 113 total justices. When the high court was established, justices were chosen from the ranks of the Founding Fathers, who were overwhelmingly Protestant. Of these, 33 have been Episcopalian.

“In recent decades, the tables have turned completely. Currently, there are five Catholics, three Jews, and one unknown on the bench. The Catholics are chief justice John Roberts, and justices Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Sonia Sotomayor. The Jewish justices are Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Stephen Breyer, and Elena Kagan. The latest to join the high court, Neil Gorsuch, is possibly a Protestant—specifically Episcopalian. But he hasn’t actually specified his faith…

“The Episcopal Church calls itself “Protestant, yet Catholic.” In other words, it’s a kind of new Catholicism informed by Martin Luther’s reformation. ” — https://qz.com/1323849/world-cup-2018-apple-products-are-everywhere-even-though-its-not-a-sponsor/

Clearly, the days of a Protestant majority on the High Court are past!  What does this mean for us all?  There are three priorities that the Religious Conservatives are seeking out of Donald Trump, and from all appearances, they will achieve them:

  1. Sanctity of the womb—reversal of the Roe v. Wade 1973 Supreme Court decision, making abortions legal in America. Since then, this nation has been slaughtering babies to the tune of 55 million+ over the past 44 years! “It’s estimated that fewer than one million abortions take place annually and more than 55 million abortions have been performed in the U.S. since 1973, based on accumulative data from the two primary sources of U.S. abortion statistics – U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Guttmacher Institute.”–  This averages to 1.25 million babies, over the same period of time: https://www.focusonthefamily.com/socialissues/life-issues/dignity-of-human-life/abortion-statistics
  2. Sanctity of Marriage—reversal of the 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges, Supreme Court decision, making same gender marriages legal in America. This law has done more to change the Christian church than any other single judicial opinion.  Only in today’s news, a CNN legal analyst opined accordingly: “If senators truly want to know who poses a threat to abortion rights and marriage equality, I have some suggested questions. First, ask the nominee if he or she supports or denounces the idea of making the Bible, rather than the Constitution, the supreme law of the land. Alarmingly, we have leaders like Mike Pence, Mike Huckabee and others openly advocating for basing US laws on the Bible. You can hear it in their arguments to overturn abortion and marriage equality, which are predicated not upon public policy concerns but upon the Bible. If you doubt me, just look at the words of Vice President Mike Pence, a man who told us that he’s “a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.” (American didn’t even make Pence’s top three!).    https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/08/opinions/donald-trump-supreme-court-bible-law-test-obeidallah/index.html
  3. Sanctity of the Lord’s Day— reversal of the modern secularization of “the Lord’s Day”—Sunday. No single body has been more energized to seeing this legislation set in place than is the 1888 consortium known as “The Lord’s Day Alliance.”  In their own words, I cite their Mission: “The object of the Lord’s Day Alliance of the U.S. is to encourage all people to recognize and observe a day of Sabbath rest and to worship the risen Lord Jesus Christ, on the Lord’s Day, Sunday; and for that purpose to gather and diffuse information, to publish documents, to use the press, to cause public addresses to be made and to use other means as shall be expedient and proper to the end that the blessings of the Lord’s Day and the benefits of Sabbath rest shall be secured for all people.” http://ldausa.org/about/

For years Adventists have been warning the world of this eventuality, and as I pen these lines, these prophecies are shaping themselves to be fulfilled!  This will be the great test and challenge of our times—the authority of God or the authority of man?  To be obedient to God, or not to be, that is the question we face today!  To this, the Bible has not been silent, for in the coming event known as the Mark of the Beast, the ire of the dragon (Satan) will be directed against all those who are obedient to God’s commandments, statutes, and judgments.

The Apostle John, in failing health, wrote these lines: “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Rev. 12: 17).  The dragon’s wrath is against the commandments (law) of God, and by extension all who would accede to that law in their life practice.  I must hasten to say here though, that while I know, as do most of modern Christianity that the Sabbath day is NOT Sunday, but rather on the weekly Sabbath (Friday sunset to Saturday sunset, not the Gregorian Saturday—midnight to midnight),  I would be among the most vocal in denouncing any law enforcing that day any.  Why?  “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is [religious] liberty,” (2 Cor. 3: 17), and not tyranny.

According to the Bible, there is coming a time when we cannot buy or sell except we subscribe to this tyrannical system engendered by the Lord’s Day Alliance, of forced worship.  This decree is enacted and enforced, on penalty of “death” by the Protestants in the United States, under the prophetic code name, “The Mark of the Beast” (MOB).   Satan has inspired them to believe, however, that this MOB system is the receiving of “a computer chip” in our bodies, but while there are economic implications in this system, the foundation of it is “worship.”  Let’s see it in clear words:

“15  And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Rev. 13: 15-17).

Clearly, this economic system has a forced worship clause in the heart of it.  The challenge was not over the economics, but over the “worship.”  Mark this point with care, for we will shortly see it play out before our very eyes!  Just as we are seeing same-gender marriages played out before our eyes, in like manner we will see a Sunday-sacredness legislation (Lord’s Day legislation) enacted before our very eyes!  Here is more from the Bible on this question:

“9  And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10  The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation … and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.  12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” (Rev. 14: 9-12).

It is of interest to observe that those who “worship” the beast’s image system—for this is an image of the Roman Catholic Inquisition System—will receive the unmixed wrath of God, while those who “keep” God’s commandments are called “the saints,” and as such the true worshippers.  They do not receive the wrath of God, but his adoration!  On which side will you be, friend or foe, saint or sinner?  This is now your question to answer.  As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

That this is not a matter to be trifled with, the last closing words of the Bible, describes all who will enter the Holy City in these words:

“12  And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be… 14  Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie…17  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”  (Rev. 22: 12-17).

Here we see, in bold relief, that those who faithfully keep God’s commandments and believe on His Son as Saviour, will enter the Holy City, and I sharp contrast to their righteous characters, are those who are violators of all God’s commandments.  They are described as “dogs”—heathens, “sorcerers”—practicing witchcraft, “whoremongers”—practicing licentiousness, “murderers”—destroyers of human’s lives, “idolaters”—idol worshippers, denying worship of the only true God (YHWH), “liars”—those who practice not the truth.  All of these characteristics can be summarized in one word—disobedient, or lawless.

Here is Good News: the Holy Spirit is calling today, He calling you, He is calling me, to obedience in Christ Jesus.  Who will hear his voice today and turn to our God in loving repentance?  The choice is given to all of us, and the road we take will determine our destiny—a journey to the Holy City, there to live and reign with Christ, or a visit to the lake of fire, from which there is no life!  Choose carefully, choose righteously, and make the right choice today, in Jesus name, Amen.

    Hi There! I think it’s very wrong and deceitful of you, the way you have written this article. You are leading people to believe that Kavanaugh is a Jesuit…speaking out of both sides of your mouth…. Lies & FAKE NEWS….something that should not be coming from an Adventist site,.

    1. Thanks for sharing Tammy. Please check this out and be the judge:

      “The magazine of the Jesuit religious order in the United States has publicly withdrawn its endorsement of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court justice following testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee by the Jesuit-educated Kavanaugh and the woman accusing him of sexually assaulting her decades ago.” https://www.foxnews.com/world/magazine-of-jesuits-urges-withdrawal-of-kavanaugh-nomination

      Still fake news?

        ABSOLUTELY STILL FAKE NEWS! There is not ONE WORD in that article that says Kavanaugh is a Jesuit. He attended a Jesuit school but that is a FAR CRY from being a Jesuit. There are many who attend an Adventist school who are not Adventists. If you were honest, you would DELETE your ARTICLE.

      2. Hi Tammy: I am willing to retract my statement that he was “Jesuit trained” if you can prove that he has disavowed being a Jesuit. Thanks. I am not a purveyor of error, and do agree with your premise that his attending a Jesuit school does not make him one. I too attended a Roman Catholic High School but am antithetical to their teachings. Shalom.

      3. Until otherwise proven, I will hold to that which is published from all authorized sources. The Jesuit Society of America could not petition for Kavanaugh’s withdrawal from the Supreme Court nomination process, were not a member of that Society. Now look at this authentic news:

        “During his remarks, Mr. Kavanaugh highlighted his Catholic faith and Jesuit connections. “The motto of my Jesuit high school was ‘men for others,’” Mr. Kavanaugh said, referencing Georgetown Preparatory School, from which he graduated in 1983. “I have tried to live that creed.” (The motto “Men for Others” was popularized in a 1973 speech to alumni of Jesuit schools by Pedro Arrupe, S.J., who was then the superior general of the Jesuits. Today, many Jesuit schools use the phrase “Men and Women for Others” or “People for Others,” though Georgetown Prep educates just young men.)”– https://www.getreligion.org/getreligion/2018/7/10/brett-kavanaughs-catholicity-wasnt-a-huge-factor-in-first-day-coverage

        Observe that Kavanaugh’s “Catholic faith,” is separate from his “Jesuit connections,” and as such he is more than just a practicing Roman Catholic who attended a Jesuit High School. I believe as you dig deeper you will be convinced that Mr. Kavanaugh is more than a simple Roman Catholic, and when you learn about the ambitions of the Jesuit Society, you will appreciate why there are now six Roman Catholics on the Supreme Court. Not at all fake news, as you contend! But there’s more:

        He [Kavanaugh] is also closely tied to the Jesuit order, lecturing and teaching at the Washington Jesuit Academy. He also attended the Georgetown Preparatory Academy, the same Jesuit High School that was attended by Neil Gorsuch. In fact, Kavanaugh even mentioned the Jesuit component of his high school on Monday night in his acceptance speech, saying, “The motto of my Jesuit high school was, ‘Men for others,’” he said. “I have tried to live that creed.” — https://pulpitandpen.org/2018/07/10/brett-kavanaugh-roman-catholic-jesuit-unlikely-to-overturn-roe/

        It is edifying to read the below a testimonial from America, The Jesuit Review, a snippet of which I provide below for the record:

        My time at Georgetown Prep was the seed of my vocation as a Jesuit brother, though I did not know it at the time. It was there I learned that brotherhood meant service. I was taught to question social ills and think of creative responses to injustice. It is time to apply that same thinking to toxic brotherhood. Lucky for us, Jesus our brother models what this should look like: including the excluded, listening to those on the margins and washing each others’ feet.

        I became a Jesuit brother because I wanted to be a companion to others: the excluded, the shunned, the shamed and the lonely. As brothers, we are companions on life’s journey in mutual relationship with those we walk alongside. Brothers are members of the laity, like religious sisters, who do not offer sacraments but rather our very selves. It is because of how we have been formed by the people of God that we know the importance of this role. Goodness springs from this filial relationship dynamic: honesty, fidelity, service, companionship and calling out the best in one another.” — https://www.americamagazine.org/faith/2018/09/24/brett-kavanaugh-and-true-meaning-brotherhood

        Here is a great read for an in-depth understanding of the ambitions of the Jesuits: https://www.thethirdangelsmessage.com/trump-nominates-jesuit

        Interestingly enough, the SDA’s are now paling around with Jesuits in open confession, yet hardly anyone is noticing this creeping compromise. Read more here: http://adventmessenger.org/adventists-jesuits-and-evangelicals-work-towards-a-peaceful-co-existence-between-religions/
