I have a curse that is the penchant for noticing patterns, trends, and the zeitgeist blowing through the culture. The spirit behind efforts, movements and populist sentiments that ring out across the land.
Since we fight a spiritual war against Evil in High Places, I tend to notice the spirit of commonality that exists to war upon the values and sacred beliefs we at one time cherished as a people in this nation.
Currently, we are embroiled in a bitter spiritual war that will inevitably lead to a physical one, and that has never become as evident as it has this past weekend as the rhetoric on the web, the hysteria of the rabid Left media goons and the jealous/hating zealots in the blogosphere are on full display.
Such vitriol always ends up leading to violence, whether it be a genocidal slaughter, or a civil war – the spiritual war transcends to the physical plane, and God’s people are once again embroiled in a bloody battle. It would be a mistake to ignore the spirits behind the war against God, Christianity and the call of the nation to repentance. Some of those spirits are clever enough to cloak themselves in garb beyond the blatant and self-evident hate to transform themselves into angels of light and ‘reason’ that deceive the individual to focus on singular aspects of contention, rather than the message, point and purpose of the call to gather a people to beseech them to turn back to God.
While I am not a listener of radio entertainer Glenn Beck, or much care for his ability to generate instant tears on his news program, that he would call America together for the purpose of exhorting us to turn back to God is an effort worthy of the support of anyone who is a Christian, anyone who reveres the bible and/or understands the religious heritage and history from whence we came as a people.
If the question for the nation was “Who stands with the Lord?” – then clearly over 800,000 physically stood for the purpose and exhortation of the event, this past Saturday with hundreds of thousands more online. More than a million-strong having heard or seen part or all of the event. The point and purpose; to turn our nation back to God – and seek repentance for ourselves and the nation.
But then almost immediately, the lines of demarcation in the spiritual war now raging became manifest.
The usual God-hating Marxists and Leftists along with the Ruling Class politicians and pundits did not disappoint in their expected outcry of rage against a rally for America to turn to God. But even they surpassed the usual amount of demonic vitriolic vomit to cross into the sphere of total unhingement.
Former editor Beau Friedlander for Air America and contributor to the Huffington Post put a bounty on the head of Glenn Beck and offered $100,000 for anyone who could provide sex tapes and phone records or any evidence of wrong doing by the talk radio host. Of course he provided that offer after he roundly bashed Christian Americans and Evangelicals – slandering them for being evil “neocons” (a favorite slam from both the Marxist Left and the Ron Paul/Alex Jones bunch). The column itself was so outrageous that even the mega-left leaning HuffPo had to retract the article from it’s site.
MSNBC’s unhinged alchie Chrissy “I gotta thrill up my leg” Matthews ranted abject fury over the rally, exclaiming: ““Who stole America? I want to know, who stole America? Give me the names. Who stole America?” as if Christians seeking God snuck into D.C. under cover of darkness and turned us into a theocracy by putting guns to everyone’s head and telling them to pray to God.
This was the day after he went beserk screaming “Little right-wing boys and little right-wing girls joining hands and singing their praise for Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin. I have a nightmare”. Yes, the nightmare for any Ruling Class hedonist is that a Christian people would dare pray and ask the nation to repent. They and the demons with their Prince who rules the power of the air, and the airwaves – tremble at the thought.
But there is far more out there from the rabid Marxist Left if you wish to do a Google search and read the absolute foam-at-the-mouth vitriol against everyone who went to that rally this Saturday.
The hatred of Christians and those who call us to return to God, is rising to an institutionalized level that I only experienced in India from the Muslims and Hindus – two opposite extremes of faith with a common enemy; Christians. Yet this is supposedly America, but it certainly feels less and less like it each passing day.
And when you read all the hatred, ranting and outright insanity and fear the Ruling Class and their Marxist sycophants have for Christians – you suddenly find yourself reading strikingly similar hatred, ranting and outright insanity from so-called Conservatives on the Right. Even moreso in some cases.
In solidarity with the Secular Christian-hating Leftists, many self-described Christian “patriots” also went beserk with as much vomitous vitriol as their Ruling Class media counterparts. They decided they would not stand with the Lord if it entailed standing with a man whose politics and doctrinal positions they did not agree with. Instead they decried those who organized the rally as being in league with the Devil, and those who went with being deceived and blinded sheep.
So they undertook the same efforts as those on the Secular and Marxist Left – and ardently warned America to stay away from; to ridicule; demean; smear; and even boldly attack Beck’s denominational faith. To plead with America that Beck’s call and assembly was not to be followed, listened to or acknowledged, even if his call was for the nation to repent and turn back to God.
Within hours, jealous competitors decided to join with the Secular Left and wage their own efforts to ‘expose’ the man responsible for calling America together before God. I mean, “How dare he!” as one blog poster in a fit of rage let fly. I could almost feel the palpable rage that must have existed in those that tore huge chunks of flesh with their teeth from the Apostle Stephen as they foamed in rage at those who had a following not approved by those who made themselves arbiters of what is holy and patriotic.
One such example is Conspiratorial crackpot and Anti-semitc nutcase Alex Jones, who in a fit of jealous rage that Beck could call nearly a million Americans to come together and pray to God – announced all his current conspiracy film projects were going to be halted so he could work on his Bash Beck film : “The Glenn Beck Deception”.
Yes, all of you 800,000 who were there on Saturday – you are “deceived” by “evil neocons” into praying to God and calling the nation to repentance.
There’s Youtube video of that rant if you care to hunt for it yourself.
Then there’s acolyte of the Leftist/Alex Jones meme, James Howard Kuntsler, who went so far to include F-bombs and other insulting vomit of those of you “disoriented citizens’ who attended the rally on Saturday:

…The masses still truly believe that prayer will save them from bankruptcy, foreclosure, penury, the loss of status, and the cut-off of precious air-conditioning, so Glenn steps onto a national monument like an Aztec priest ascending the Pyramid of Huitzilopochtli to soothe the angry god with worshipful incantations, and incidentally maybe a few dozen sacrificial hearts cut out — just as the tea-bagger right-wing glorifies the sacrifices of US soldiers blown up by roadside bombs for the sake of American military adventuring
No I’m not providing a link to that spew – what I posted is all I will subject you fine folks to reading.
But back to the curse I mentioned in the first sentence of this rant. In this spiritual war for the soul of the nation and it’s near-term future – the spirit prompting those bashing Beck and Christians at that rally, whether they be from the Ruling Class Left – or the Alex Jones/Right – is the same spirit – who hates beyond reason and logic that anyone be exhorted to return to God, to seek Repentance and to turn from our wicked ways as II Chronicles 7:14 tells us.
Make no mistake, this is a spiritual war. And history always shows, that those engaged in attacking the faith and spiritual constitution of a segment of the population – will transcend the arena of rhetoric and rant, and rend that pound of flesh from our bones with teeth and steel.
Such is how Satan the Devil works.
