What the “Left Behind” Series Got Wrong: How a One World Government is Now Possible

Back in the nineties the Left Behind Series became popular. I was afraid to say so at the time, but the very plot description sounded dull. It had been done to death–and I had sat through many of its predecessors like a good Christian girl was expected to.

I had already choked down that awful pot boiler 666 by Salem Kirban, and sat through the first of that groovy Thief in the Night Series where the cast is dressed like members of the Brady Bunch with similar dialogue. Badly written, but free from swears. (The acting is more wooden.)

I never bothered with Left Behind since it seemed to promise more of the same. But for those who have forgotten or don’t know the premise–here is how it goes.

Every Christian in the world–or child of under 12–is zapped out of their clothes. Raptured to Heaven. So at more than a third of the world’s people are gone. I read the Fred Clark summary–which contains numerous quotes from the sources–and he points out how weird everyone’s acceptance is. And how there is no real disruption to the economy or social fabric with all the children in the world suddenly vanished. https://patheos.com/blogs/slacktivist/2015/11/05/left-behind-index-the-whole-thing/

All the sudden (I guess out of desperation over the mysterious disappearances though that is not given as a reason. It would make too much sense to point out the NWO exploiting such a convenient crisis. The writers don’t do much with that.) Nicolai Carpathia–a sexy, thirty-three year old ginger from Romania since the “anti christ” is supposed to be linked to Rome somehow (why not Italy?) comes to the scene. Nicky is repeatedly described as charming and charismatic as well as handsome. But the dialogue I have read conveys neither quality.

Nicky wows the UN by reciting the names of the countries who are members. Overwhelmed by such an example of breath taking eloquence and wit all the nations in the world immediately give up their sovereignty. Including the United States.

The whole scenario is ridiculous. The lack of world building is not helped by it supposedly being set in the real world.

But here’s how a real world takeover could happen. We wouldn’t even need a charismatic figure at the center.

Forget the concept of a central monarchy ruled over by a celebrity type figure. The best means of centralized government is a thing called technocracy.

One man (I make an exception for Jesus in His glorified form) could not successfully take over the whole world and establish a universal currency to force upon everyone as a stamp. But a small group of unelected experts can. Assuming they have enough money.

Assume a severe crisis happens. Followed by many others.

And the national governments respond horribly. Not just brutally to their citizens but stupidly as well.

Many skeptics dismiss this poor response as due to ineptitude. Others–mocked as conspiracy theorists–openly speculate something more sinister is afoot. Inept as bureaucrats are, if it is all due to bungling, why are they bungling the same way? Why do they all fall together in lock step?

The majority insist that the experts advising the national government they are under (“normies” tend to be short sighted) know what they are doing. If only everyone else would follow the experts’ advice things could get back to normal and everything would be fine. Tempers flare and people lose their minds. Especially those assiduously obeying the bizarre, ever changing, self contradictory advice of the scientific experts.

Free debate is stifled. In most places assembly is restricted if not banned. Using a prolonged state of emergency as justification. Online censoring goes along with this. Worth noting only a few people control most of the social media interactions now. They are called Big Tech. They also control other things online.

The emergency measures taken cause other emergencies. Economic, social, and civil. All convenient for the technocrats and other elitists who have been calling for a one world government for decades.

After a large portion of humanity has conveniently died–sad for those who value individuals but not the collectivists including all technocrats–they officially take over.

The most convenient number would be 6,000,000,000 of us dead. But if the technocrats got nervous or impatient they might settle for fewer than 2,000,000,000 casualties. They would build a bunch of “smart cities” with surveillance apps everywhere.

Everyone willing to surrender allegiance to the global technocrat state will receive a universal basic income. Through a chip–supplemented with a tattoo etched into the skin of the hand or forehead with tiny needles–they will upload a cashless unit of the new global currency. How big the allowance is depends on how loyal and unquestioning the obedience to the New World Order.

They wouldn’t pull this off all at once. While in the process of undermining the populace’s trust in their national governments, they would establish some sort of pass system. One linked to unquestioning obedience to the government.

The chief key to pull off this global coups would be modifying human behaviors for a few years beforehand. I will write about possible ways the technocrats could easily pull this off in my next post.

Dumber Than Sheep

A lot of people have been mocking others by calling them “sheeple” recently. As for themselves they are not sheep, but wolves or lions.

King David–the “alpha male chad” of his time–implied that he was a “sheep” in his most famous psalm. But he was a proud sheep because of who his Shepherd was.

My name “Rachel” is Hebrew for ewe lamb of God. I always liked the idea of being a lamb as a child. (Children and sheep have a lot in common.)

Sheep are weak, easily frightened, helpless, and–above all–stupid. But there are a few survival strategies they have.

  • Stick with the shepherd. When he’s not nearby, stick with the flock.
  • Know the shepherd’s voice and come when he calls.
  • Bleat loudly while running from danger so the shepherd may hear and save you.

The shepherd looks out for you and will protect what belongs to him. The stupidest sheep are the loners who wander off to get into mischief doing their own thing.

Staying with the flock is important for two reasons. First there are benefits to numbers. Especially among mild-mannered herbivores. While they can’t take on predators, but scatter, they can take on the elements as a team. There have been cases of flocks lost in snowstorms who survived by huddling together so their combined fleeces and body warmth staved off the cold. And sheep function best together. Secondly when you stay with the flock that makes it easier for the shepherd to protect you.

Knowing the shepherd’s voice and coming will help him keep you safe from thieves and predators.

Bleating will help him find you–even if you wandered off or got lost when the flock scattered.

Here are some behaviors so dumb that even sheep won’t do them. (At least not the four-footed kind.)

  • Mistake the baying of a wolf for the shepherd and go running to him.
  • When wolves attack instead of just panicking and scattering from fear, hold down fellow sheep in the hopes that they will be eaten and you spared.
  • When you’ve strayed from the flock, and wind up hungry, lost and injured you may hear the shepherd’s voice calling your name. Don’t bleat. Not like you are that helpless, needy or weak after all. You have the situation under control. You are an Alpha Sheep.

Free E-Book

I wrote a collection of four flash fictions. All but the first are under 1,000 words.

A humorous story, “Covid Carin'” is told in excerpts from a mommy blog. Told from the POV of a meddling, image obsessed, shallow woman living in a gated community while everyone else struggles around her. To her credit, she does her part, by lecturing others on SM, and calling the police for minor infractions…till she gets hers.

“Christopher Moon” is a creepy pasta about a cowardly young man hiding in his grandma’s attack. He lives in terror of the virus/death. Until one day he leaves home for avocado spread, and meets the Reaper at a big box store.

In “Kevin’s Mask” a husband fails to learn the importance of good hygiene by masking up.

Mrs. Scrubb finds a safe place to spend the rest of her existence hiding from disease carrying humanity in “Behind the Masks.” A mysterious apartment complex provides her a sterile room to stay in, a screen to stare at, and beans with lukewarm water to sustain herself. What more could anyone ask for?

Here’s the book in PDF format.

Stuff a Friend of Mine Says About the Past Year and a Half

“It’s easier to fool people than to get them to admit they’ve been fooled.”

“People would rather look like they’re doing the right thing than actually do the right thing.”

“Humans are quickly impressionable and can be conditioned quickly and relatively easily to significantly alter their behaviors, for better or for worse.”

“People would rather commit to being wrong than to admit they were wrong. The ego has dominion, regardless of who you are.”

“A significantly large percentage of the population thoroughly enjoys being controlled and subjugated and resents the remainder who don’t.”

“When significantly frightened, the vast majority of the population will not only accept authoritarianism but demand it.”

“People value safety and security more than freedom and liberty and are willing to give up whatever it takes to achieve it–even if said safety and security are merely an illusion.”

“Keep people just comfortable enough and they will not revolt. Just ensure their docility and servility by providing them with food, alcohol and entertainment and you can strip them of all their freedoms and liberties without fear of an uprising.”

“The media is more powerful than we could ever imagine.”

Thanks Nick.

My own aphorism, “People prefer a simple, emotional lie to a complex, nuanced truth because the former is easier to understand and it bores them to remain calm.”

Persecution, Tribulation, and the Resurrection

It’s odd how little talk there is of the Resurrection of Believers in Christian circles now. Few songs being piped out of Hillsong Inc. mention death. No resurrection without death.

I’m not just referring to the Crucifixion of our Lord–and how God the Father raised Him from the dead. Essential to Christianity as this belief is.

I’m talking about how He told us not to fear death. He has promised to raise us even as the Father raised Him.

There’s a lot of wistful sighing and spooning over something called the “Rapture” which I can’t find in Scriptures. It’s as extra biblical as the Sinner’s Prayer and the Soul Mate allotted (supposedly) Hito all godly Christian women who “save it for marriage” and pray hard enough.

This seems to fly in the face of the persecutions in this life Jesus promised all His disciples. He promised us mansions and golden streets in the next life, a huge family in this one as well as the next…and persecutions!

You won’t hear this from Joel Osteen. He preaches a different gospel than Jesus did.

Persecutions are different from the Tribulation. I’ve been puzzling over what makes the Tribulation so much worse than ancient Rome, what happened to true Christians throughout the ages as described in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, what Muslims and Hindus have done to them, what Communists have done to those who traffic in the opiate of the people.

It’s hard to get more brutal than some of the tortures described in books I have read. Being torn apart by wild animals, burned alive, flayed (cut to pieces slowly), tortured on the rack, crucified, sent out on the ice to die like the Forty Martyrs of Sabaste.

I guess the Tribulation only differs from the Persecutions (which Christ promised us all, though not to equal degrees) in the scope of it. The Tribulation will be world wide with nowhere to escape. A global government and universal currency connected to a mark on your hand or forehead.

Persecution in the Tribulation

The link I provided has some interesting ideas for this time.

I see nothing in the Bible promising God will take us out. Except maybe midway through. We will only be delivered over to the Beast–with the nations of the world–for forty-two months according to Revelation 13.

No mention of a Rapture. Just a warning of a falling away and how the love of many will grow cold. A warning of how Christians must be faithful and patient.

“Oh, but that’s the people who will convert in droves after the ‘Rapture.’ They wouldn’t believe the Gospel while it was easy and the cost was minimal, while there were Christians willing to evangelize and churches where they could be baptized. But after it gets difficult, dangerous, and deadly to worship Christ then everyone will pick up their raptured spouse’s Bible with the Sinner’s Prayer in the footnotes and Scofield’s commentary and timeline. Then millions will suddenly become saved even though they couldn’t be bothered before.”

People suddenly flocking to church when it’s risky. Like how they did during the “pandemic?” Defying not just the media engendered hysteria misophobia but the government mandates and social shaming to obey the Lord. Partaking of the sacred meal He commanded to do in memory of Him till He returns, and not forsaking the Assembly so we can bear one another’s burdens? Christians everywhere have automatically displayed such a heroic spirit–choosing to obey God rather than evil men–as a response to the pressure of the global lockdown–while before they were too lazy to get out of bed.

It therefore makes sense that people will come to Jesus who couldn’t be bothered with Him once severe persecution starts and no mature Christians are around. They’ll automatically show fortitude, faithfulness, and courage now that discipleship is costly.

Yes. The last two paragraphs are snark.

The Rapture is popular with the suburbanite yuppie crowd. Those who have lived charmed lives and never known poverty, alienation, or life shattering disability.

As someone who has struggled to follow the Lord since age 6 and been lonely and socially outcast–relying on others to avoid hunger or homelessness due to my chronic illness brought on by doctors never held accountable–I know how brutal life can be. But life’s brutality and injustice are frequent scriptural themes. So I can’t say God did not keep His Word to me.

I know He has redeemed me from my sins. I know He can and will raise me from the dead.

Christians need to quit being cowards and show some trust in God.

Persecution, Tribulation, and the Resurrection

Why we have been put through what we have been put through

Been waiting to “come out” as a crazy, tinfoil hat wearer. With this crazy conspiracy theory I’ve been forced to believe due to all the mounting evidence. The Great Reset is real enough. Biden, Trudeau, and a number of others have mentioned it in public speeches. Stating they were on board with it.

There is indeed a group of wealthy, powerful men calling for a one world government with one cashless form of universal currency. Funny how few Christians seem to know this. The same people who chowed down on the dreadfully written Left Behind novels are clueless when the New World Order suddenly stares at them through their own screens.

They didn’t question the Lockdown, masks and other measures, but complied nicely. Without question.

Sunday school theology at its finest.

Jesus was a nice guy with a pretty smile and clean hair parted down the middle. He never raised his voice, always had excellent table manners, used perfect grammar, and never got angry. He never made waves or said offensive things that hurt people’s feelings. (At least not the people-who-really-mattered.) His nails were always immaculate.

By going to Sunday school, singing sweet songs, and hearing nice stories we too can become nice people. Perfectly polite, well groomed, well educated, and making people happy. Especially the important people. People-who-really-matter.

These females (men are not as passive, cowardly and gullible) were perfect tools used by the globalists to encourage lockdown tyranny. By blind submission and obedience to some truly evil men in lab coats, these hysterical damsels in distress helped destroy the country.

The “Covid Carin’.” Because Covid Carin was so Thoughtful and Considerate–as she loved to post repeatedly on antisocial media accounts–she wasn’t content with wearing her own mask or three. She wasn’t content with staying quarantined at home herself. Or even forcing her hypochondria on her Loved Ones. The people she helped so much that above their masks they all had hunted expressions.

Covid Carin did her best to destroy her neighbors’ livelihoods. Because SAFETY. And being Considerate. It was also Considerate to mock her “friends” for posting how sick the constant mask wearing made their kids in school. How they would pass out in gym. How they became horribly ill from bacterial growths or asphyxiation. “Can’t handle a little mask wearing? Lol.”

While bragging about what a great Christian she was all over the net, Covid Carin demanded we all close churches forever. Claiming assembly wasn’t important. Watching stuff on a screen also made her feel good so she knew Jesus was pleased. The Gov demanded we stop meeting together and Romans 13 said we should always obey the Gov instead of God. (It doesn’t but Covid Carins think it does. So did the Nazis who loved to quote that passage out of context.)

BTW, I never have liked that sort of woman. They were the cute but mean girls who tore me apart in high school, got their pick of marriage proposals at Christian college, and put me down constantly after I failed at Biblical womanhood. Looking like a life sized Barbie doll. Marrying a nice white collar man out of college and having 3-4 kids as a SAHM like God wants all women to be. They love to rip me down or say condescending nonsense under pretext of trying to cheer me up.

Being wives and mothers did not make them any wiser or less susceptible to Satanic deception. So much for the Churchian notion that matrons are the spiritual superiors of older virgins in every conceivable way. (Pun intended.)

But despite their obvious sex appeal, charm and social skills from early on they lacked the ability to think outside the box or practice discernment. It’s worse than ordinary stupidity. People who have low IQs can’t help it.

These women willingly–gladly–abdicated their capacity for higher reasoning. They chose to put their trust and faith in those they knew to practice things God hates. People they knew did what is evil. Yet they placed supreme confidence in them because they were doctors.

And they are abject cowards. Yes, cowardice as a sin.

They chose to trust and obey the Serpent rather than the Lord.

That never ends well.

Will post a video link describing the Great Reset tomorrow. Weird how so few Christians are alarmed or even leery of a One World Government with a One World Currency about to come out. I guess they assumed they’d get raptured first. I’m amazed at how brutal the New Regime is. Run by a bunch of technocrats devoid of compassion, empathy or justice. But ho hum. Nobody bothers doing any research since changing their minds might compel them to change their lives. Which would be difficult, uncomfortable and dangerous.

The Star Who Wouldn’t Sing

It sat among the other stars,

The star that wouldn’t sing.

The others sang without it,

“All praise to God our King.”

The little star shone for itself.

And yet its light shone cold.

Then it collapsed upon itself.

A barren, hungry hole.

Now roaming through the universe

This monster pulls within

The planets, stars and comets.

All hungry, lone and grim.

How We All Got Taken on a Ride

It was a pleasant, sunny day. The birds were singing. Children were playing.

The Jones family left their suburban home with suitcases. They were ready for the Trip.

“Lovely day, isn’t it?” said Pamela Jones to Mrs. Brown.

“Yes, it is, isn’t it?” Mrs. Brown replied. Her husband stood by her.

Their two boys were no longer there. They used to be active youngsters. But the doctor helped them.

Now both were pale, withdrawn, and small for their ages. Wherever they were today.

“Have you heard from Sarah?”

“No.”

Sarah Armstrong and her two kids had been on the last bus out of the town with ten other families. They had known she wouldn’t last long and avoided her since she spread Conspiracy Theories.

She hadn’t written. No one did.

The authorities never said where they were being sent. Just that it was essential to go.

Aside from the Smiths and the Connors there were no families left in the suburban area. They were not ready yet, but they’d be leaving on the bus too. Then the area would be empty for whatever They wanted to do with it.

The first several busloads had been for the poor, the sickly, and the disabled. Starting with the mentally disabled and all with a psychiatric diagnosis. Many had not wanted to go and were very vocal about it.

Those in charge of the Relocations had assured those around them who weren’t being sent away to ignore them. They would receive excellent care by Experts. Care those around couldn’t or wouldn’t provide. They were annoying.

Pamela recalled how sad it made her to see their faces and hear their calls for help as they were loaded–some left of their own free wills–onto bus after bus. But the people were unpleasant. Things would be better with them relocated Somewhere Else.

Then the elderly were relocated. First the sickly and poor. The kind they assumed were headed for nursing homes. Though Pam had heard one of the drivers say, no. It was Somewhere Else.

A lot of the people were tired of looking after their aging grandparents and parents. So they let them get taken as well.

Next they took the kids nobody wanted. The foster kids, the disabled, those born into poverty, Next they started advertising for any kids whose parents no longer wanted them. Doctors, nurse practitioners, teachers, lots of social workers urging parents to consider giving their kids away. To be relocated and cared for. In that proper way that only Experts know.

The Brown’s sons had gone. Their mother had been persuaded to send them.

The lady who had loaded them on the bus had promised they would write. But they never sent so much as a postcard according to their mom. Which was odd, Pam thought, but Mrs. Brown never said so. Nor did her husband.

Finally not one but two vehicles arrived. Not buses. New vans. The other for the Connors and Smiths.

This was perfectly normal, Mrs. Jones assured herself. She took a breath and climbed in after her husbands.

How We All Got Taken on a Ride

Collectivism and Individualism

You’re unique. Just like everybody else.

There’s a great deal of talk now about collectivism versus individualism. The idea is the collectivist is unselfish while the individualist puts the needs of the group below his or her own. That is a false dilemma. There’s nothing intrinsically selfish about individualism nor noble about collectivism.

The whole Bible is full of passages about the responsibility of the individual. It is as individuals we are to be held accountable before the Lord. He will not hold us accountable for the sins of our fathers or grant us salvation because our ancestors were faithful to Him while we are not.

We are not to be rewarded nor punished simply because we fall into group X. Romans was written to the Jewish Christians telling them that belonging to that ethnic group cannot save you. Nor–as some of the bizarre alt right cults would have it–does a Jewish heritage prevent anyone from knowing the joys of salvation found in Christ Jesus.

  • A collectivist wishes to appear unselfish and noble in the eyes of the faceless collective. The individualist prioritizes the well being and happiness of individual people in her life. Say one yearns to be an Instagram celebrity and the other yearns to serve the people she comes in contact with as a SAHM or worker or friend. Individually.
  • A collectivist refuses to take any risks since the collective is large enough. Someone else can risk it. Or better yet, let the bureaucrats in charge take care of everything. And who would risk their own life for the good of some amorphous blob known as “Mankind”? Collectivists won’t go the extra mile–unless they’re sure the collective will see it and applaud them. The individualist will sacrifice greatly for individual friends–even laying down his life for the love of them.
  • Though not motivated by these, an individualist also enjoys praise and commendation. From a beloved spouse, a parent, a friend, or child. A collectivist prefers likes and shares from strangers on that misnamed thing called “social” media.
  • A collectivist is passionate about “Society” as an abstraction, even if they’re a misanthropic crank. The individualist values their spouse, child, coworker, friends from church, next-door neighbor, and won’t tell everybody.
  • Collectivists all value their own individual needs as one can see from their behaviors during this pandemic. They were very careful about protecting their own health (as they thought) by obeying everything the doctors told them to. They also were happy to continue getting paid from home or get government checks sent their way. I don’t condemn either taking care of your health or wanting sustenance, but I’m pointing out that “collectivism” is not intrinsically disinterested.
  • A collectivist wants all people to be alike and wishes to enforce conformity upon them. No measures are too extreme or brutal for dealing with those individuals unable to conform due to emotional or bodily weakness.
  • An individualist loves individuals and has no desire to quench the individuality of the people in his or her life. We like each other’s faces and long to draw close to one another. Love is risky but worth it.

The New Abnormal would have us alike but apart. Sterile, frozen and dead.

The True Normal (ordained by God) would have us different but together. As unique individuals in Christ’s body. All special and precious yet part of a group greater than ourselves.

My stories deal with individuals, but don’t espouse selfishness. They encourage individual responsibility and acts of moral courage and self sacrifice. In Anemia, Lizz takes on a powerful monster out of love for her individual sister. In Maxwell’s Rules, Curt starts out as a bureaucrat (the perfect subspecies of collectivists) who works tirelessly for the good of the school while hating the students. Since the story is one of redemption I don’t praise this behavior.

Collectivism and Individualism

God Created Normal

This has been quite a rough 15 months. From my research–much of it forbidden on mainstream platforms I seldom use anymore–I have discovered some ugly things I wish I didn’t know.

My hope is to use what I know to help my fellow Christians in the time that lies ahead. The internet is a wondrous invention. Like many it can be used for good as well as evil.

Like the television it can be used to deceive the masses. But unlike the TV it can be used for the communication to go both ways. This makes it hard for the bad guys running the world to control the narrative the way they like. Plus there are certain plans being made that can be seen from our enemies communicating with one another.

This device has helped humanity achieve 2 things. The possibility for Babel 2 and the potential to finally get the message to every tribe and nation. As a Christian the latter gives me hope.

Follow the link. World government already exists in everything but name. They’re discussing world currency too.

You notice all the talk about how great communism is now? And how horrible nationalism (loving and attending to your native land) is? What is the alternative to nationalism?

Globalism. According to the Bible the Lord has opposed globalism since the Tower of Babel.

We have a lot to repent of as Christians as far as the past year goes. Here are some Bible passages we have not taken seriously.

Genesis 2:18 And God said, It is not good that the man should be alone, I will make him an help meet for him.

Hebrews 10:24-25 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works; not foresaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

James 1:9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice that he is exalted.

James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

But especially John 11:25-26 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

Now many are seriously considering spending the rest of their lives in semi isolation, loudly condemn those who obey the Lord in assembling (including professors–though many are ceasing to even profess,) look to Caesar for a “living wage,” venerate the sin of covetousness, and expect Caesar to feed the poor. While applauding measures to prevent their neighbor from working–thereby forcing him into poverty which Caesar can also attend to.

If people really believed in John 11:25-26 they wouldn’t act this way. But 75% have formally renounced the faith. I’m glad the Lord is pruning away the deadwood. One benefit to even mild persecution and unpopularity is no more country club churchianity. I predict more of us freaks and riff raff will become welcome since life on the fringe is our thing. And a lot of sincere people are turning to Christ now.

Sometimes God allows the armed troops to surround us to force us to look up to His fiery chariots in the sky.
