When will man ever wake up and understand that his way his diametrically opposite to the way of God? The situation in Syria is in stark contrast to that which is contained in the pages of the Holy Bible, yet not so surprisingly, with many so-called “religious” peoples loosely based around Islam, Muslims hate, persecute and kill anyone even loosely aligned with the religion of Christianity.

The effects we see in this war torn nation, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Egypt, the “democratic republic of Congo, Sudan, Somalia, Mexico, and the list goes on, are all filled with violence, murder & war!

WHAT DID THE ONE TRUE GOD INTEND?

Let us suppose that war, and violence and suffering is what should be what humanity should naturally practice as we see in these war torn nations, why do the effects we see repulse the rest of humankind who desire the way of peace and kindness, love, mercy patience? The truth is something that those who continue committing such acts of barbarity will never admit their error, but continue on in, until there would be no flesh saved alive!

Most professing “Christians” do not connect what God did to the earth in the time of Noah, because the world that then was, was filled with violence, and the wickedness of man was great in the earth! See Genesis chapters 6-7. What resulted was a global catastrophe beyond the imagination of mankind! a catastrophe so vast, as to change the entire topography of earth’s entire surface, and destroying all life, mankind included!

That is not something humanity wants to face, yet face this, we MUST! We have no alternative but to address this, or the crucible of war will undoubtedly consume mankind, again!

In fact, a man whom the religion of the Muslims reject as the Son of God, Yeshua, called in english Yesus, or pronounced Jesus, actually stated this very fact in a prophecy some 2000 years ago in the book of Matthew, chapter 24. Saying, “But as it was in the days in the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the son of man be.”

We’ve already seen that the earth was filled with violence, and the wickedness of man was great in the earth. That tells us the same conditions will prevail at the time The LORD returns to the earth as He said.

Likewise, He, The LORD said that this violence in the earth would be at a point for mankind, that war would be at the point of destroying the entire earth, and that  if it were not for His chosen ones in the earth at this time of the very end, He, God would not cut that time short, but for their sakes He will cut short that time of utter destruction to save life on planet earth!

To those of us who believe these and hundreds of prophecies relating to the effects we see all over this troubled earth, there is a cause for every effect we see on our television sets, hear on our radio’s, and see on the world wide web, that prophecy is fulfilled as each moment passes.  The escalating horrors of violence all over our troubled planet are shown in Biblical prophecy to continue until The Son of God returns to this earth to replace man’s violence with everlasting peace.

In Isa.32:17. God teaches us that through the work of righteousness shall be peace. Is that what we see in these nations filled with evil religions, and their followers? This article may highly offend their peoples, but can any deny that all we see from the vast bulk of Muslim religions is hatred of the west, of “Christianity”, of their fellow man.

It seems that no matter where one looks, it is difficult to find any location on earth where Muslims exist where they do not preach hatred and violence.

One example is Abu Bakar Bashir, who is in constant defiance of any form of democratic order, or of peace and love to his fellow man. He is currently attempting to upset the peaceful democratic process in Indonesia, and in reality, he is anti-man. The Quran itself does not advocate the wholesale murder of other human beings, although the writings of their “prophet”, Mohammed are skewed on many issues, the main and telling issue is their almost daily violence on scales we who love our fellow man cannot comprehend. In fact, the scriptures of the Holy Bible show very clearly that it is the Almighty God Himself who will deal with all of their evil at His return to planet earth in power and great Glory!

Again in the book of the prophet, a genuine prophet, chapter 57, and verse 21; The eternal God inspired Isaiah to write; There is no peace to the wicked!

How would any “thinking” nation desiring peace obtain peace from barbaric acts of car bombings, road bombs, human bombs, truck bombs. The cycle of violence can only be broken when the truly brave stand up and say, “NO MORE”. The brave are not those who brainwash poor little children to blow themselves up in the presence of others whom their parents and other evil human beings “say” are evil, when the sad fact is that they are the ones themselves who are evil by their very actions.

The Holy Bible states in the New Testament that God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in the churches of the saints. (I Cor.14:33) Is there any peace in these nations? What is the predominant religion in most of them? Therefore, their god is the author of confusion, of hate, of violence and murder, never peace!

Sadly, mankind will not deal with the CAUSES of his problems, because they are essentially spiritual in nature as a man once said in the 2oth century, and that cannot be denied.

General Douglas Macarthur stated that “it was to be of the spirit if we are to save the flesh”, a sentiment all but forgotten in a world filled with violence, compromise of morals, values, discipline, love and lost families.

 

The following is his final address to the American congress, and below this is his actual transcript.

  • Men since the beginning of time have sought peace. Various methods through the ages have been attempted to devise an international process to prevent or settle disputes between nations. From the very start workable methods were found in so far as individual citizens were concerned, but the mechanics of an instrumentality of larger international scope have never been successful. Military alliances, balances of power, Leagues of Nations, all in turn failed, leaving the only path to be by way of the crucible of war. The utter destructiveness of war now blocks out this alternative. We have had our last chance. If we will not devise some greater and more equitable system, Armageddon will be at our door.

Farewell address to Congress (1951)[edit]

I know war as few other men now living know it, and nothing to me is more revolting. I have long advocated its complete abolition, as its very destructiveness on both friend and foe has rendered it useless as a means of settling international disputes … But once war is forced upon us, there is no other alternative than to apply every available means to bring it to a swift end.

War’s very object is victory, not prolonged indecision. In war there is no substitute for victory.

Farewell address to a Joint Session of Congress (19 April 1951) (with MPEG audio)
  • I stand on this rostrum with a sense of deep humility and great pride — humility in the weight of those great American architects of our history who have stood here before me; pride in the reflection that this home of legislative debate represents human liberty in the purest form yet devised.
  • Here are centered the hopes and aspirations and faith of the entire human race. I do not stand here as advocate for any partisan cause, for the issues are fundamental and reach quite beyond the realm of partisan consideration. They must be resolved on the highest plane of national interest if our course is to prove sound and our future protected. I trust, therefore, that you will do me the justice of receiving that which I have to say as solely expressing the considered viewpoint of a fellow American.
  • I address you with neither rancor nor bitterness in the fading twilight of life, with but one purpose in mind: to serve my country. The issues are global and so interlocked that to consider the problems of one sector, oblivious to those of another, is but to court disaster for the whole.While Asia is commonly referred to as the Gateway to Europe, it is no less true that Europe is the Gateway to Asia, and the broad influence of the one cannot fail to have its impact upon the other.
  • In this situation, it becomes vital that our own country orient its policies in consonance with this basic evolutionary condition rather than pursue a course blind to the reality that the colonial era is now past and the Asian peoples covet the right to shape their own free destiny. What they seek now is friendly guidance, understanding, and support — not imperious direction — the dignity of equality and not the shame of subjugation.
  • The Pacific no longer represents menacing avenues of approach for a prospective invader. It assumes, instead, the friendly aspect of a peaceful lake. Our line of defense is a natural one and can be maintained with a minimum of military effort and expense.
  • China, up to 50 years ago, was completely non-homogenous, being compartmented into groups divided against each other. The war-making tendency was almost non-existent, as they still followed the tenets of the Confucian ideal of pacifist culture. At the turn of the century, under the regime of Chang Tso Lin, efforts toward greater homogeneity produced the start of a nationalist urge. This was further and more successfully developed under the leadership of Chiang Kai-Shek, but has been brought to its greatest fruition under the present regime to the point that it has now taken on the character of a united nationalism of increasingly dominant, aggressive tendencies.
  • The Japanese people, since the war, have undergone the greatest reformation recorded in modern history. With a commendable will, eagerness to learn, and marked capacity to understand, they have, from the ashes left in war’s wake, erected in Japan an edifice dedicated to the supremacy of individual liberty and personal dignity; and in the ensuing process there has been created a truly representative government committed to the advance of political morality, freedom of economic enterprise, and social justice. Politically, economically, and socially Japan is now abreast of many free nations of the earth and will not again fail the universal trust… I sent all four of our occupation divisions to the Korean battlefront without the slightest qualms as to the effect of the resulting power vacuum upon Japan. The results fully justified my faith. I know of no nation more serene, orderly, and industrious, nor in which higher hopes can be entertained for future constructive service in the advance of the human race.
  • While I was not consulted prior to the President’s decision to intervene in support of the Republic of Korea, that decision from a military standpoint, proved a sound one, as we hurled back the invader and decimated his forces. Our victory was complete, and our objectives within reach, when Red China intervened with numerically superior ground forces.
  • While no man in his right mind would advocate sending our ground forces into continental China, and such was never given a thought, the new situation did urgently demand a drastic revision of strategic planning if our political aim was to defeat this new enemy as we had defeated the old.
  • We could hold in Korea by constant maneuver and in an approximate area where our supply line advantages were in balance with the supply line disadvantages of the enemy, but we could hope at best for only an indecisive campaign with its terrible and constant attrition upon our forces if the enemy utilized its full military potential. I have constantly called for the new political decisions essential to a solution.
    Efforts have been made to distort my position. It has been said, in effect, that I was a warmonger. Nothing could be further from the truth. I know war as few other men now living know it, and nothing to me is more revolting. I have long advocated its complete abolition, as its very destructiveness on both friend and foe has rendered it useless as a means of settling international disputes. … But once war is forced upon us, there is no other alternative than to apply every available means to bring it to a swift end.
  • War’s very object is victory, not prolonged indecision. In war there is no substitute for victory.
  • There are some who, for varying reasons, would appease Red China. They are blind to history’s clear lesson, for history teaches with unmistakable emphasis that appeasement but begets new and bloodier war. It points to no single instance where this end has justified that means, where appeasement has led to more than a sham peace. Like blackmail, it lays the basis for new and successively greater demands until, as in blackmail, violence becomes the only other alternative.
  • The tragedy of Korea is further heightened by the fact that its military action is confined to its territorial limits. It condemns that nation, which it is our purpose to save, to suffer the devastating impact of full naval and air bombardment while the enemy’s sanctuaries are fully protected from such attack and devastation. Of the nations of the world, Korea alone, up to now, is the sole one which has risked its all against communism. The magnificence of the courage and fortitude of the Korean people defies description.
    They have chosen to risk death rather than slavery. Their last words to me were: “Don’t scuttle the Pacific!”
  • I am closing my 52 years of military service. When I joined the Army, even before the turn of the century, it was the fulfillment of all of my boyish hopes and dreams. The world has turned over many times since I took the oath on the plain at West Point, and the hopes and dreams have long since vanished, but I still remember the refrain of one of the most popular barrack ballads of that day which proclaimed most proudly that “old soldiers never die; they just fade away.”
    And like the old soldier of that ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the light to see that duty.
