Pay attention to the short but important Book of Jude

Published

on

Of all of the short books of the Bible, my two favorites are Ruth and Jude. Both were powerful for the time they were written and both are profound today. The messages within Jude resonate across time and are important to all regardless of boundaries. It is a book that everyone should read over and over again.

Unfortunately, that’s not the case in most churches. The book is one that discusses certain topics considered taboo in many modern churches. For one, it discusses the fallen angels. Today, many churches avoid the topic of fallen angels as described in Genesis 6 to the point that they falsely describe the “Sons of God” as being the sons of Seth. It is very clear through an honest exegesis that these are fallen angels, but it simply isn’t acceptable in most churches to discuss angels engaging sexually with women. Jude discusses it further and even references the Book of Enoch, another taboo discussion in churches since it is not part of the canon in most denominations.

Jude starts off as a stark warning to the people of the age, discussing those who were trying to destroy the early church. He reminds the church of Egypt, Sodom, and Gomorrah, acknowledging that they already know about these warnings but insinuating that some in the church may have already forgotten the lessons those people learned about the wrath of God.

Then, he brings up a topic that was not discussed anywhere else in scripture. We learn in the last chapter of Deuteronomy that Moses died and God buried him

Deuteronomy 34:5-6

So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord.

And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.

This was the last of it and assumed to be the state of Moses even now, but Jude tells a different story. It is one verse and isn’t 100% clear in its meaning, but it serves as a valuable lesson to us all.

Jude 1:9

Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

If the mighty Michael called on the Lord while disputing with Satan, how could any of us ever hope to face demons and the forces of darkness on our own?

This is one small portion of the book, but it’s enough to discuss for a long time. We will explore Jude further in the future, but for now, please take the time to study it verse by verse, word by word. There is so much discussed. Every verse is important. If you’re a listener, above is the video of the King James Version.

Dan Bongino calls out Antifa for what they really are

Dan Bongino calls out Antifa for what they really are

There’s a strange series of contradictions within the Antifa movement. They claim to be anti-fascist, yet their actions can only be categorized as fascist suppression techniques. They claim to be against racism and misogyny, yet they intimidate any minority or woman who doesn’t agree with them. They pretend to be brave, yet they hide behind masks.

Conservative pundit Dan Bongino knows a thing or two about fighting fascism, stopping bigotry, and being brave. As an outspoken commentator and former Secret Service agent, Bongino has done more to defend this country and promote the proper ideologies we need in order to prevent fascism from ever rearing its ugly head here. He’s also no fan of Antifa.

As he notes, the real agenda of Antifa isn’t anti-fascism. Their name really implies they’re anti-FA – First Amendment. Even as they fight “hate speech,” they do so in ways that are designed to suppress our freedoms to speak. They’re quickly becoming a parody of the old progressive movements, albeit more dangerous today.

The false narratives behind Portland’s Antifa versus Proud Boys

Published

The false narratives behind Portlands Antifa versus Proud Boys

Depending on which news outlets you use, there are two primary narratives that are being pushed. Narrative one is, “Far-right group and Antifa clash in Portland.” Narrative two is, “Antifa gets violent. Again.”

The first narrative is what you’ll get from progressive legacy media outlets as they offer cover for the violence being perpetrated almost exclusively by Antifa as they clash with the Proud Boys. The latter is being classified as a “far-right” group, but they’re actually more of an “alt-right” group that does not believe in true conservative principles. Nevertheless, anything “right” is painted by the media as part of the conservative movement, the GOP, and President Trump’s base. This is important to understand because in the narrative the left is painting, their goal is to make the Proud Boys appear to be white supremacist and therefore attached to President Trump because according to their latest agenda, they have to portray him as a racist at every turn.

The second narrative is the reality, and you won’t find it reported this way by many news outlets, even on the right. There’s a disassociation some publications are actively engaged in where they believe reporting that seems to favor the Proud Boys makes the news outlet seem like it’s supporting white supremacy. This is the progressive propaganda machine at work; even conservative journalists are hesitant to lose credibility over perceptions.

Quillette journalist Angy Ngo is reporting live on Twitter. We’ll try to update it as he adds more:

As you can see from Ngo’s reporting, the violence seems to be undertaken exclusively by Antifa. But legacy media will only report it as clashes “between” the two groups and not as violence instigated solely by the side that holds the left’s progressive mantle. All of this is secondary to the overarching narrative they’re driving, that the Proud Boys represent the right and their white supremacy beliefs are defended by the President.

On cue, the President chimed in:

The left pounced, as they’re wont to do, by saying this is evidence the President is sympathetic to the Proud Boys because he singled out Antifa in a “mutual” conflict. What they won’t tell you is Antifa is starting the fights. They’re bringing the weapons. They’re pepper-spraying people. They’re attacking buses. One does not have to believe in the Proud Boys’ rhetoric to realize Antifa is instigating violence here.

As Beth Baumann reported, even journalists are being targeted:

So Much For Being ‘Peaceful’: Antifa Attacks Reporters And Conservatives In Portland (Again)

Not quite seven weeks ago, conservative journalist Andy Ngo was attacked while covering an Antifa protest in Portland, Oregon. Mayor Tom Wheeler ordered police to stand down at the time and received backlash for doing so. The city prepared for the Proud Boys to hold a rally on Saturday, with Antifa showing up to counter protest. Wheeler made it clear that Portland is taking a “zero tolerance” policy during Saturday’s activities.

Despite the warning, Antifa, once again, became violent.

At one point, Antifa protestors had The Washington Examiner‘s Julio Rosas surrounded. They wanted him to report on what was taking place from the other side of the street because he “wasn’t with” them.

Rosas attempted to explain that he was simply reporting on the events for his job but Antifa didn’t care. They thought he was “spying” on them.

The irony in all of this has become a recurring theme between Antifa and their supporters in progressive media and the Democratic Party. They claim Antifa is simply “anti-fascist” while ignoring the fact that they’re the ones using fascism to promote their ideas and to quash opposing ideas. Reports on the ground in Portland demonstrate this clearly.

Here are Rosas’s Twitter reports:

The left’s narratives: (1) Proud Boys and Antifa are equally to blame, (2) Proud Boys are white supremacists while Antifa are anti-fascists, and (3) President Trump support white supremacists. Don’t believe the lies.

Romans 323 for all have sinned

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; – Romans 3:23

Our Father wants obedient children but we have proven time and time again since the beginning of our existence that we are not obedient. Rather than let us destroy any chance of salvation, He gave us a final hope: Jesus Christ, our Lord, our Messiah, our Savior.
