Foes Of Humanity



"Evil has always sought world domination, the eradication of truth, the curtailing of freedom of expression,
civil and religious liberty, the imprisonment or annihilation of its opposers, and has ever worked behind the
scenes, hidden, destroyed or refuted evidence of its doings, worn disguises designed to fool and mislead,
also presented itself as a heralder of
new light, a knight in shining armour, and claimed some moral right or
justification for introducing, sanctioning
and implementing the injurious and self-serving."
The poet, author

If via looking back at certain historical things, if via serious research both secular and religious, and if via numerous quotes, articles and books you saw a certain pattern and disturbing parallels, things that seemed to point to a plan, plot, threat (call it what you will) that was far from being in the best interests of you and I (though disguised otherwise), what would you do? Should you keep silent or share?
And hence the article that follows this introduction, and any POEMS thereafter, each bringing something of their own to the table, and like this article, having been very reluctantly penned, though built on certain evidence and history, hardly some conspiracy theory (the information speaking for itself).
This article is a mix of COMMENTS and QUOTES.

What's on this page is simply for your information, and as I believe it to be, given the thorough research that I've done.
Unfortunately, the same conclusions have sometimes been very badly and thoughtlessly presented by others, and all why people may have been quick to dismiss such conclusions despite the evidence.
At the end of the day, it's for you to decide for yourself whether it all adds up or not.

"If the pieces are clearly fitting, it’s not a conspiracy theory, but a puzzle awaiting completion.”
The poet, author


Is there in fact a plan, plot, threat (call it what you will), and is it global in nature?

The following sample quotes give some idea of behind the scenes activity.

"The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining super capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control....Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent."
Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976, killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that was shot down by the Soviets.

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
David Rockefeller, Baden-Baden, Germany 1991

Great nations are simply the operating fronts of behind-the-scenes, vastly ambitious individuals who have become so effectively powerful because of their ability to remain invisible while operating behind the national scenery.
Buckminister Fuller (1895-1983)

The governments of the present day have to deal not merely with other governments, with emperors, kings and ministers, but also with the secret societies which have everywhere their unscrupulous agents, and can at the last moment upset all the governments’ plans.

The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes."
Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881)

Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.
Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919)

However, are we looking at any country in particluar?

“Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.”
Dr. Henry Kissinger, Evians, France, 1991

“Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”
Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924)

"I am concerned for the security of our great nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within."
General Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964)

"The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation...
The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties... and control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country.
They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government.
It operates under cover of a self-created screen and seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection."
New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, New York Times, March 26, 1922

"The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes."
Felix Frankfurter, Supreme Court Justice (1882-1965)

“Today the path of total dictatorship in the United States can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by the Congress, the President, or the people. Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government – a bureaucratic elite.”
Senator William Jenner, 1954

"There is a de facto “secret government” operating nationally and internationally and involved in the highest circles of the U.S. government, exercising an impact over domestic policies and economics ranging between extreme influence to, at times, outright control. This extreme influence to outright control naturally includes the Presidency."
Mike Culbert

Regarding all this:
The Christian Bible (via the apocalyptic book of Revelation) when speaking of the time just prior to Christ's return, has this to say (my own comments in the brackets):

"Then I [the apostle John] saw another beast [power] coming out of the earth [a new land]. He had two horns [civil-religious liberty] like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon [changes character]. He exercised all the authority of the first beast [a past persecuting power] on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast [fulfills the past power's historic evil intentions], whose wound had been healed [it reviving from its previous historic fall]"
(Rev 13:11,12, NIV).

"He [the coming global government] was granted power to give breath to the image [copy] of the beast [the first beast], that the image [copy] of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image [copy] of the beast to be killed [here it's referring to dissenters, those who won't bow to certain demands. Another type of Final Solution?]" (Rev 13:15, NKJV).

"...and his
[the past persecuting power's] deadly wound was healed [it revives]..." (Rev 13:3, NKJV).

"...And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast [the End-time global power]; they worshiped the dragon [Satan] because he gave his authority to the beast [it effectively acting on Satan's behalf]; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him [combat it]?" (Rev 13:3,4, NASB).

“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image [copy], and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God…’ ”
(Rev 14:9,10, NKJV).

You may like to read the book of Revelation for yourself, chapter 13, verses 11 to18; and chapter 14, verses 9 to13.

Going by those biblical texts, this power:
1) Has a character change, goes from good to bad, turns nasty.
2) Becomes a global one.
3) Causes all to worship it eventually, and those who refuse to bow to it are despatched. T
hus it's clearly a Church and State power.

"We must move as quickly as possible to a one-world government; a one-world religion; under a one-world leader."

"...the United Nations Charter has to be supplemented by a charter of spiritual laws..."

Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations.

4) Fulfills a past [but revived] power's evil historic intentions via acting the same.

So who is this beast power that once was like a lamb but changes character?

America fitting the picture.

We all know that liberties in America have been rapidly declining, particularly since 911.

American historian William Blum published his "updated summary of the record of US foreign policy" —
Since the Second World War, the US has:
Attempted to overthrow more than 50 governments, most of them democratically elected.
Attempted to suppress a populist or national movement in 20 countries.
Grossly interfered in democratic elections in at least 30 countries.
Dropped bombs on the people of more than 30 countries.
Attempted to assassinate more than 50 foreign leaders.
In total, the United States has carried out one or more of these actions in 69 countries. In almost all cases, Britain has been a collaborator.

"I have never been able to look upon America as young and vital but rather as prematurely old,
as a fruit which rotted before it had a chance to ripen."
Henry Miller (1891-1980), U.S. author

"At the rate America is decaying morally, we shall have to change our national symbol from an eagle to a vulture."

Vance Havner (1901-1986)

"If God doesn't destroy Hollywood Boulevard, He owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology."
Jay Leno

“America as a nation is ripe for judgment. The evangelical movement in this country is characterized by an arrogance that is almost beyond belief. The neglect of prayer, the involvement of Philistine methodology, the moral evils, and the doctrinal corruptions that characterise the movement are sufficient to cause Sodomites to wonder at God’s justice in destroying their city while sparing the United States.”

From the book, Looking At America And The Church, by Richard Owen Roberts

"The U.S. is a cosmetic democracy."
John Pilger, Australian journalist

“All three buildings were destroyed by carefully planned, orchestrated and executed controlled demolition.”
Professor Lynn Margulis, Department of Geosciences, University of Massachusetts at Amherst and National Academy of Science member.

"The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history."

Heard of Blackwater? It's a private army that the US government has quietly hired to operate in international war zones and on American soil.
“Blackwater is a company whose business depends on war and conflict to thrive. It operates in a demand-based industry where corporate profits are intimately linked to an escalation of violence.” From the book Blackwater by Jeremy Scahill (also the author of the book Dirty Wars).

"In his new book, The Nazis Next Door, Lichtblau reports that thousands of Nazis managed to settle in the United States after World War II, often with the direct assistance of American intelligence officials who saw them as potential spies and informants in the Cold War against the Soviet Union."
Eric Lichtblau is an investigative reporter for The New York Times.

This global power in its eventual fullness is clearly a Church and State power given that it not only has political clout but forces all to worship it, and this lending credibility to the quotes that follow.

So who is the beast power that America becomes a COPY of, the one that was wounded, yet revives?

Papal Rome fitting the picture.

The following is not an attack on Catholics (many of them putting Protestants to shame), but is simply presenting concerning facts regarding Catholicism, the system and hierarchy.

"I see a very dark cloud on our horizon. And that dark cloud is coming from Rome."
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

"The day is not distant, and it may be very near, when we shall all have to fight the battle of the Reformation over again"
Sir Robert Peel (1788-1850)

Regarding the book "The Transformation of the Republic" by C.T. Wilcox (2003)
"An expose of Vatican and Jesuit intrigues and interference into the political structure of the United States and Europe. It contains shocking revelations and fully authenticated documentation, much of it hidden for almost 100 years, to support the conclusion that the United States has been transformed from a beacon of light and hope into an empire with beast-like tendencies and that the world is headed for a Vatican led and instigated cataclysm while it sleepwalks towards the edge." 

“Long before I was ordained a priest, I knew that my church was the most implacable enemy of this republic [the United States]. My professors of philosophy, history and theology had been unanimous in telling me that the principles and laws of the Church of Rome were absolutely antagonistic to the laws and principles which are the foundation-stones of the Constitution of the United States.”
Fifty Years in the Church of Rome by Charles Chiniquy

“As the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government is broken. But almost no one blames the culprit: our insistence on obedience to the Constitution, with all its archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions…”
Louis Michael Seidman (Catholic law professor from Georgetown University which is a Jesuit University, “Let’s Give Up on the Constitution,” The Opinion Pages, New York Times, December 30, 2012).

"When the United States rules the world, the Catholic Church will rule the world."
James E. Quigley, Roman Catholic Archbishop, Chicago Daily Tribune, May 5, 1903

“Catholics will dominate the future of America because of sheer numbers. Immigration from Mexico and family sizes means the old Protestant America is throwing itself off a demographic cliff. Tomorrow’s America will be far less Protestant and far more Catholic. At last, Catholics will have a prominent role in the future of America..."
The National Catholic Register, May 15, 2007, and those comments by the editors.

Bearing the quote above in mind: What do they mean by Catholics will have a prominent role in the future of America? A country that shunned kings and popes, and that many fled the bloodied shores of Europe for. Remember the Papal inquisition? Such an office still exists today but under a different name, it's job still being to root out what it deems heresy.

"As a result, within the [Nazi] SS Central Security Service, an organization was created, and most of its main posts were held by Catholic priests wearing the black uniform of the [Nazi] SS. The Jesuit father [priest] Himmler [uncle of Heinrich Himmler] was one of its superior officers.”
The Secret History of the Jesuits by Edmund Paris

"I [Hitler] learned much from the Order of the Jesuits. Until now, there has never been anything more grandiose on earth than the hierarchical organisation of the Catholic Church. I transferred much of this organisation into my own party."
Adolf Hitler (Smokescreens by Jack Chick, Chick Publications)

"Moreover, the pope has thousands of secret agents worldwide. They include Jesuits, the Knights of Columbus, Knights of Malta, Opus Dei, and others. The Vatican's Intelligence Service and its field resources are second to none."
Dave Hunt, Amercan Baptist Historian

"In 1978, the year that Pope John Paul I was murdered and Pope John Paul II took over the papacy, a set of Vatican stamps was issued featuring a pyramid and an all-seeing eye."
David Icke

I can't vouch for the validity of the quote just above given that David Icke is a conspiracy theorist, but it's interesting to note three things in particular:
Mel Gibson is a Catholic. In his Marion movie, "The Passion Of The Christ," Jesus, the thief next to Him on the cross, and Barrabus, end up only having or seeing out of one eye (such not biblical, of course).
Acording to James Parton (1822-1891), an American historian, and using his words: If you trace up Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top, head Mason of the World, you will discover that the dread individual and the Chief of the Society of Jesus [Jesuits] are one and the same person."
 On the back of the American dollar bill there's an all-seeing eye and pyramid too.

Papal Rome (which ruled for over a thousand years) fits the wounded beast power that revives to a tee given that:
It was wounded via General Berthier (under Napoleon, and in 1798) taking the pope prisoner, and also by the
Protestant Reformation.
It has since remarkably revived, as can be seen in the following quotes:

"Nearly every Western nation today sends an ambassador to the Vatican, a tiny enclave with approximately 800 citizens. It is a frank recognition of the pope's status as a full-fledged player in the geopolitical arena and that what the French liberals tried to achieve in 1798 has now been amazingly reversed."
Loron Wade

"The Catholic Church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. She is a greater possessor of material riches than any other institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe. The pope, as the visible ruler of this immense amassment of wealth is consequently the richest individual in the twentieth century. No one can realistically assess how much he is worth in terms of billions of dollars."
The Vatican Billions by Avro Manhattan

No wonder it dosen't want to declare its finances.
Having said this, there are other identifying marks as well, which once again, Papal Rome also fits to a tee.

Once upon a time I used to laugh at people who went on about the Jesuits, but serious research (activated more by accident than design) soon wiped the smile off my naive face.
Evidence reveals that Jesuits are in key positions in America, and even around the world.

“It is well known that there were over two thousand members of the Jesuit Order located in Washington [D.C.] in the years prior to the year 1900. In the last one hundred plus years, this number is anyone’s guess, but the reader can be assured that it has increased significantly, and with it, the political influence it wields.”
From the book: The Transformation Of The Republic, by C.T.Wilcox, 2005.

"For over 200 years, the goal [of the Jesuits] has been the complete destruction of the United States Constitution. In the religious arena, the goal of the Jesuits is to wipe out any trace of Protestantism and other religions, and to
restore worldwide domination by the pope."

Bill Hughes (From his book The Secret Terrorists)

“The Jesuits, by their very calling, by the very essence of their institution, are bound to seek, by every means, right or wrong, the destruction of Protestantism. This is the condition of their existence, the duty they must fulfill, or cease to be Jesuits.”
Footprints of the Jesuits, R. W. Thompson, 1894

"It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country – the United States of America – are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated most of the wars of Europe."
Marquis de LaFayette, French statesman and general (1757-1834).

“The organization of the [Roman Catholic] Hierarchy is a complete military despotism of which the Pope is the ostensible [apparent; seeming] head; but of which, the Black Pope [the Superior General of the Jesuits], is the real head. The Black Pope is the head of the order of the Jesuits, and is called a General [the Superior General]. He not only has command of his own order, but directs and controls the general policy of the [Roman Catholic] Church. He [the Black Pope] is the power behind the throne, and is the real potential head of the Hierarchy. The whole machine is under the strictest rules of military discipline. The whole thought and will of this machine, to plan, propose and execute, is found in its head. There is no independence of thought, or of action, in its subordinate parts. Implicit and unquestioning obedience to the orders of superiors in authority, is the sworn duty of the priesthood of every grade…”
American Brigadier General Thomas Maley Harris (1817-1906)

It needs to be remembered that the period of Papal Rome persecution (that spanned hundreds of years) is often mistakenly referred to as the Christian Crusades given that Catholicism is not a Christian denomination but actually a hybrid and power thats adulterated form of Christianity mirrors ancient Babylon; 
the Christian Bible knowing nothing of purgatory, a virgin Mary who intercedes on our behalf, a Queen of Heaven, papal infallibility, celibate priests, a post-Calvary mediatorial priesthood—not that priests ever forgave sinsrosary beads, repetitive prayers, prayers for the dead, indulgences, money for the forgiving of sins, monasteries, nunneries, an uninspired, error bound apocrypha, mystic nuns, stations of the cross, etc, etc.

“The services of worship increased in splendor, but were less spiritual and hearty than those of former times. The forms and ceremonies of paganism gradually crept into the worship. Some of the old heathen feasts became church festivals with change of name and of worship. About 405AD images of saints and martyrs began to appear in the churches, at first as memorials, then in succession revered, adored, and worshiped. The adoration of the Virgin Mary was substituted for the worship of Venus and Diana; the Lord's supper became a sacrifice in place of a memorial; and the elder evolved from a preacher into a priest.”
Story Of The Christian Church, p 79, by Jesse Lyman Hurlbut (1843-1930)

The Bible not only speaks of this power in the book of Revelation, but also refers to this power in the book of Daniel (chapters two and seven) where this power is called the little horn. See the following poem that's linked. 
However, to keep the continuity flowing, it might be better to come back to this link later.

"Those Beasts"

"He [Papal Rome] shall [did and does] speak words [pompous claims] against the Most High [God], shall wear out [persecute] the holy ones [the past Waldenses, etc], and shall attempt to change the sacred seasons [shape the course of history] and the law [the Ten Commandments] ..." (Dan 7:25).

Let me break this verse down:

Shall speak words against:

"The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, but he is Jesus Christ
Himself, hidden under a veil of the flesh."

The Catholic National, July 1895

"The Pope has power to change times, to abrogate laws, and to dispense
with all things,
even the precepts of Christ."
Decretal, De Translatic Episcop

“Rebutting a belief widely shared by Protestants and a growing number of Roman Catholics, Pope John Paul II dismissed Tuesday the “widespread idea that one can obtain forgiveness directly from God,” and exhorted Catholics to confess more often to their priests.”
December 12, 1984, The Los Angeles Times

Shall wear out the holy ones:

“The Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind.”
W.E. Lecky Rise and influence of rationalism in Europe, volume 2, p.32.

“We came in like lambs and will rule like wolves.”
Francesco Borgia, Third Jesuit Superior General.

Remember the Papal inquisitions? How it murdered those who wouldn't accept its dogma?

Shall attempt to change the sacred seasons (shape the course of history):

"The Jesuit Order is an association of highly organized warrior priests. They are politicians first and foremost and have been expelled from virtually every country they have had the opportunity to corrupt and destroy. Their modus operandi is political and educational infiltration and subversion and the fomenting of wars and revolutions in order to weaken and mold the target country into submissive pliability, to then be used to carry out their purpose of global ecclesiastically backed dictatorship. The United States is no exception to this."
From the book The Transformation Of The Republic by C.T.Wilcox

And the Law:

“Sunday is our mark of authority...The church [Roman Catholic] is above the Bible and this transference
of sabbath observance from Saturday to Sunday is proof of the fact.”

Catholic Record of London, Ontario, Canada, Sept 1,1928

Collier's Encyclopedia — Saturday, seventh day of the week.

“We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity
from Saturday to Sunday.”
Peter Geiermann, The Converts Catechism of Catholic Doctrine p.50, (1946 ed.).

"Sunday is founded, not of Scripture, but on tradition, and is distinctly a Catholic insitution."
Catholic Record, Sep 17, 1893.

The seventh day (Saturday) Sabbath is the FOURTH Commandment of God's Ten Commandment Law.
In AD 364, at the Council of Laodicea (a Roman Catholic council), Sunday observance instead of Saturday was introduced as church law by the Bishop of Rome (Canon 29 of this council, which specifies Judaizing
keeping the 7th day Saturday Sabbath as the reason for avoiding Saturday Sabbath observance].
It was Catholicism (Papal Rome) that forced its dogma on all (or else) for over a thousand years.
And the current pope is once again calling for Sunday observance (free of business and backed by legislation) under the guise of a needed rest day for the Earth and so on.

Regarding the seventh day Saturday Sabbath, click on the following link. However, and once again, to keep the continuity flowing, it might be better to come back to this link later:

"What Happened To The Sabbath In God's Law?"

All why I have a problem with Catholicism, not Catholics.

"The Papacy is not other than the Ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof."
Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679)

When Constantine shifted to Constantinople, he left the Bishop of Rome [Pope to be] in charge of Rome. Hence how pagan Rome ended up becoming papal Rome. The beasts [certain powers] prophetically portrayed in the Bible’s book of Daniel (chapters 7, and 2) end in papal Rome (the Little Horn, Daniel 7:8,20,21,24,25, which, as also predicted, sits amongst the still divided nations of Europe, Daniel 2:41-44). Therefore, we’re effectively still in the days of papal Rome given that papal Rome (once wounded by Napoleon) is not only the last power mentioned, but one that’ll be resurrected (Rev 13:3,11-18) via an infiltrated America that’s Protestants have lost the plot, and via a Church and State tethering.

"Anybody who is acquainted with the state of affairs in the Vatican in the last 35 years is well aware that the prince of darkness has had and still has his surrogates in the court of St. Peter in Rome.”
Catholic scholar Dr. Malachi Martin, formerly a Jesuit professor at Georgetown University and a confidant of Vatican insiders.

For further and very revealing information on what has been presented on this page regarding Jesuits and Catholicism, click on the following two links. However, and once again, to keep the continuity flowing, it might be better to come back to these links later.
Link one:


Please note that this isn't a blanket endorsement by me of this particular link, nor of the many links from this link.

Link two (where not only the same quotes can be found, but more quotes):

And further to all this:

"Already the high priests, prayers and temples of the universal cult are with us. Curriculums are being drafted to indoctrinate our children in what John Rockefeller, Jr. calls “The Church of all People.”…The first step is to break
down loyalty to a single religious faith…"

Edith Kermit Roosevelt, First Lady of the U.S., 1901-1909

"The Jesuits failed in their attempts to have a world governing body following World War One. They accomplished their sinister goal after World War Two. Following the war, the weary, aching world was conditioned to accept an international government, and the United Nations was born. Since the creation of the United Nations in 1945, this so-called ‘peace-keeping’ body has failed miserably in keeping peace around the world. Why? Because keeping peace is not their purpose, even though they continue to claim that it is. There are presently some 83 different wars around the world. However, it has certainly been instrumental in suppressing liberty loving people. Katanga and Rhodesia are just two examples of nations crushed by U. N. forces. The United Nations has worked tirelessly to restore the temporal power of the papacy — its purpose from the beginning."
Bill Hughes (From his book The Secret Terrorists)

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."
Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951)

Reunification helping big time, and thus an infiltrated Protestantism leading the charge.

"On the right and on the left, ordained and self-proclaimed "reverends" and honorary "doctors" appear to spend more time trying to reform a fallen and decaying world through politics and earthly power than they do promoting and proclaiming the ultimate answer [the gospel] to that fallenness."
Cal Thomas

"As Christians we are not here to provide an ethic for society or the state, but to clearly define an ethic for disciples of Jesus Christ. In the American system of government it is difficult for this stance to be understood. We operate with the myth of being a Christian nation, and we seek to interpret for society an ethic that we can bless as Christians. We need a new awareness of the pluralism of the New Testament, that the crucial issue is the difference between the church and the world, and that the church operates "within the perfection of Christ," while the world operates outside the perfection or will of Christ. Christians influence the state for good through Christian ethics and integrity, but they do not equate church and state. Only an indepth understanding of this issue can save us from a cultural and a civil religion."
Myron Augsburger

So how many players might there be, and all roads eventually leading to...?
And as for the latter:

"If you trace up Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top, head Mason of the World, you will discover that the dread individual and the Chief of the Society of Jesus [Jesuits] are one and the same person."
James Parton (1822-1891), American historian

Yes, very very clever.

Also worth knowing, or so it goes:
That Vatican city,
The City of London (London's inner city, one square mile
the world's financial power centre which houes the Rothschild controlled ‘Bank of England,’ Lloyds of London, the London Stock Exchange, all British banks, the branch offices of 384 foreign banks, 70 USA banks, Fleet Street's newspaper and publishing monopolies, headquarters for worldwide Freemasonry, and headquarters for the worldwide money cartel known as The Crown, or Firm),
The District of Columbia (each having their own flag), are three interlocking city states (an empire), and that the flag of Washington's District of Columbia has three red stars on it, one for each of these city states, one city state ruling the world economically, one militarily, and one spiritually (and indeed Papal Rome will one day, going by the above, hence that Reformation reversal, and here we go again. And Papal Rome having used the military might of others before).

"He [the coming global government] was granted power to give breath to the image [copy] of the beast [the first beast], that the image [copy] of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image [copy] of the beast to be killed [here it's referring to dissenters, those who won't bow to certain demands; another type of Final Solution perhaps]" (Rev 13:15, NKJV).

Interestingly, at the center of each city state are giant phallic shaped stone monuments called obelisks.

"At the end of a century that has seen the evils of communism, Nazism and other modern tyrannies, the impulse to centralize power remains amazingly persistent."
Joseph Sobran (1946-2010)

Of course, because the same people have been at work all along.

By the way, why is pointing out the errors in any denomination or religion important?
Because that information made public can help prevent others from embracing that same error.
Because that information made public can help those who’ve already embraced that error to see why it is in fact error.
Because that information should naturally be made available in order for people to not only make up their minds but truly have freedom of choice.
Because people often come up with opposite arguments from the very same source as us — the Bible, say — thus one not only having to find and present the correct position, the truth, but show and prove the error in any counter argument, which some people wrongly call knocking when it's really informing and aiding.
Because certain beliefs that some people are holding to are unhealthy, or very destructive — ISIS being one example. And such passing from generation to generation. And also bearing in mind here that Papal Rome was responsible for the death of many millions over its more than one thousand year reign.
Because much that's been said and done in the name of God hasn't been of God at all.

When I can no longer challenge your beliefs, and you can no longer challenge mine,

Liberty has been assaulted, God offended, and those in power have crossed the line.
When we can no longer point out error, and a charlatan or tyrant expose,
Freedom has become a memory, man enslaved, and truth dismantled by its foes.

1.  9/11 Ponderings

Brent looked at his father enquiringly. “Do you think 9/11 was an inside job, some skulduggery?”
“Well, son, there are certainly those who say so, and they’ve put forth a degree of evidence, interestingly.
But I wouldn’t like to think so, son, and more so being an American, for how could any of us act so,
Unless our allegiance was to someone else, or we, masquerading as an American, a disguised foe?”

Brent stopped chewing his lip. “Do you think we should just dismiss such, Dad, given that it seems pretty far fetched, really?
And I suspect that those Americans who're claiming that such was an inside job are in the minority.”
“No, it doesn’t pay to dismiss anything, son, no matter how oddball it seems, for life’s full of surprises,
And at the end of the day, enemies often work from within, and they can come in all kinds of disguises.

Why should we think that such couldn’t happen in America, and wouldn’t we be at greater risk thinking so?
'Cause we’d hardly be watching — so sure of ourselves, as it were — and thus more susceptible to some stealthy foe.
Remember the wooden horse of Troy? Is it possible that we’ve let one in of a different nature, somehow,
So utterly convinced that such couldn’t happen, and not daring to think that Americans such would allow?

After all, behind the scenes activity has been going on in our country since its founding, sad to say,
Which historical and contemporary books and articles, and very informative websites, convey.
And hence why I’m never too dismissive of things, son — and besides, it’s clear that there’s something going on out there,
And given how evil’s oft wrapped to attract, and how whistle-blowers are attacked, we may well have cause for fear.

Yes, those who’re up to something, son, hardly say so, and when caught out, oft deny such, and talk of conspiracies,
All of which is why we need to do our homework, for only one who’s vigilant and informed the truth then sees.
And sometimes, son, we have to fill in the pieces, having only been able to discover so much, and then
One’s often up against the don’t-want-to-know brigade, as well as the cynics, quick with their voice or disputing pen.

No country-cum-government is beyond any foul play, son, one only has to look at America’s past:
Assassinated presidents, slavery, apartheid, the Ku Klux Klan, and there’re other things that one could unmask.”
“Like what, Dad?”  “Well, Abraham Lincoln warned of Jesuits at work, classing them as America’s greatest threat,
And then there has been the likes of freemasonry, its secret symbols on our money, and elsewhere, don’t forget.

Yes, we’ve certainly no reason for feeling relaxed about things, son, and bear in mind that things have gotten worse,
And given our forays into other countries, illegal or not, there are those who America even curse.
Yes, one could say that we’ve created enemies, son, let alone traitors and any inside job, possibly,
And why I wouldn’t go dismissing this or that, for who knows?”  “Thanks, Dad. That sounds like pretty good advice to me.”

2.  I Love America

(So to speak, but not some things I'm seeing).

There’re many good Americans (both Christian and non-Christian), and good folk who’ve made America their country,
Yes, peace loving, law abiding, principled, caring people who dearly value freedom and liberty,
And who aren’t raging liberals nor religious zealots, but rather, tolerant, open-minded and fair,
Though not to the point of foolishness, and who’re thus prepared to stand up and speak out, their vision true and clear.

Such Americans love their family, home and country, and respect those offshore who love their own country too,
Patriotism not getting in the way of sound judgment, for there’s no wisdom in those who war pursue,
And nor in those who want to tether Church and State, for it’s that separation that has made America great,
A land where civil and religious liberty has shone like a beacon, and hence their loss would seal its fate.

And where to then? And that’s what I’m afraid of,

Because there are many good Americans, and there is so much about America to like, but hey,
Something’s going on that all Americans need to do something about, for things have badly gone astray.
And hence why they can’t afford to hide their dirty laundry, nor think things couldn’t happen in America —
Whatever those things may be — and hence why they shouldn’t leave any stone unturned, for blindness never gets one far.

Yes, be it decay or behind the scenes activity, such needs dealing with, ferreting out, and quickly,
For that which is left too late often seals one’s fate, and here, such could mean the loss of freedom and liberty,
And for what, given that there’s absolutely nothing worth exchanging for such, and who’d be careless with such?
'Cause that’s how others have suffered, stealth evilly entering some door, seeking what it had no right to clutch.

And so it goes, which is why we all need to be on guard, 'cause things have indeed changed worldwide, tragically,
Though America is where it’s all at, the Statute of Liberty confirming my point, land of the free!
And hence why the world is watching with concern those changes that are taking place within America,
'Cause no other country has the same clout and influence — for better or worse — and here we are,

And where tomorrow?

3.  The Hollywood Agenda

Exactly who’s behind Hollywood is another story, but believe me, one thing is becoming clear,
And that is, that what Hollywood’s churning out is no mere accident, but rather, designed in order to steer.
In other words, we’re talking about a calculated attempt to manipulate society,
And this, in preparation for something, something that’s trying to get at our minds, and very cunningly.

Yes, the Hollywood agenda, which aside from its usual diet of sex, violence and crudity,
Is now furiously pumping out movies that promote and enthrone the occult, and this, lucratively.
Hence the growing interest these days in anything supernatural-cum-mystical, even bizarre,
And why we seem to be heading  back to those dark old days of pagan ill, seeking some kind of Shangri-la.

And seemingly one that will allow us to indulge in any selfish and wanton gratification,
Midst playing with the dangerous, mysterious and demonic, hence today’s sicker crime escalation.
And no surprises here, for look at the blood and gore-cum-ghoulish-cum-porn, snuff movies that abound today,
Such corrupting, soiling, weakening and destroying minds and hearts, and we wonder why things have gone astray.

And as I said, there’s clearly an agenda, one that’s preparing us for something that will fool and mislead,
And I suspect such being a New World Order that’s surrounded by the supernatural, ill guaranteed.
Yes, a one world government that clever trickery precedes, humanity having been prepared for such,
Courtesy of the likes of Hollywood’s agenda, and why soon some power will have all within its clutch.

I’m dreaming? Well, bearing in mind that Hollywood’s agenda encompasses what’s religious and New Age,
A religious, political worldwide power isn’t that far fetched, one that certain signs and wonders will stage.
And given how many are being taken in by certain apparitions and manifestations already,
I don’t believe I’m far from wrong, and bearing in mind that such a scene is portrayed biblically.

And hence the likes of the terribly distorted Passion of the Christ, the Twilight and Left Behind series,
Not to mention the Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, just a few of the many so designed to seize.
And oh, how they do, holding millions spellbound with their religious, New Age, occult mixture that educates,
And why sound knowledge-cum-truth is giving way to fiction-cum-fantasy that wrong and error propagates.

So no, what Hollywood's churning out is no mere accident, and nor in order to just gain more money,
But rather, to captivate and prepare society for something on the horizon, and this subtly.
Yes, no coming through the front door, such too obvious, but via the back door, and oh, the power of TV,
Which those with an agenda clearly realise, but which society in general simply fails to see.

"I get letters from children addressed to Professor Dumbledore, and it's not a joke, begging to be let into Hogwarts, and some of them are really sad. Because they want it to be true so badly they've convinced themselves it's true."
K.J. Rowling herself speaking to Newsweek

"Television is the major mainstream infiltration for the new satanic religion. The TV set, or satanic family alter, has grown more elaborate since the early 50’s, from the tiny, fuzzy screen to huge entertainment centers covering entire walls with several TV monitors. What started as a innocent respite from everyday life has become in itself a replacement for real life for millions, a major religion of the masses.”

4.  Calling It As It Is

Now please don’t go getting me wrong, for I’m not out to knock America, for much wrong exists in every country,
But what I would like to do here is, provide a degree of missing balance, which I believe is necessary.
Why? Because so often patriotism is misplaced, and even a terribly bad thing, to be honest,
And why when it comes to wars, citizens shouldn’t be in too big a hurry to support such, and nor to enlist.

Too often, those who are claiming some superiority, be such moral or otherwise, are just as guilty,
That is, they’re equally as errant and hypocritical, or at least, far from squeaky-clean — yes, far from saintly.
And so it is with America, who regularly has patted herself on the back, rather self righteously,
When the truth of the matter is, that America has a pretty murky, violent and chequered history.

And lest it be that you doubt, let me bring just a few of these evils to your attention, beginning with slavery,
And the shocking mistreatment of indigenous tribes, and then there’s the likes of the Ku Klux Klan, white supremacy,
Apartheid, mobsters, corporate crime, the secret workings of freemasonry, warned of Jesuit activity,
And sad to say, given America’s roots, that terrible militant bigoted right-wing Christianity.

And oh, how the world’s been corrupted via Hollywood, and the health of many injured via the likes of Burger King,
Kentucky Fried Chicken and McDonalds, and other such unhealthy fast-food outlets with a familiar ring.
Thus, despite any good that America has done, it has also been responsible for many ills of the day,
And behind all the patriotic fanfare, and the Statue of Liberty, there’s a shadow government, some say,

And if that's so, I would suspect one that's worldwide, at the end of the day.

Now such wouldn’t be so bad if these ills were in the past, but such isn’t so, for much remains, unfortunately,
And America still seems trapped in an unhealthy patriotism — yes, more like a fever, actually.
And hence those preventable forays into other countries, fuelled by misinformation, self-interest and fear,
Yes, that hysteria, which is aiding the loss of liberties that Americans once enjoyed, but now less share.

But such seems lost on many, who can’t seem to see where their country is heading, thinking that it’s still on the right track,
But like so many other countries, its moral compass, and original foundation, have developed a crack.
Yes, one that is much cause for alarm, and hence why it’s heading those calls for a New World Order (the path of folly),
Or as many folk believe, an engineered takeover of Earth — and behind it, currently disguised treachery.

Most don’t seem to realise that you can’t legislate a harmonious peaceful world, for such is a heart and mind thing,
And such can only be so where there is total freedom and liberty, and to such, we should tenaciously cling.
Thus, such can only be achieved where there is less governmental control, not more, and hence why things aren’t looking good,
For whatever spin is put on such, New World Orders will work against, rather than for, true sister and brotherhood.

Yes, when foxes guard the hen house.

5.  I'm Concerned, America

Yes, I’m concerned, America, land of the free, civil-religious liberty,
A young land that rejected kings and popes — yes, a republic-cum-democracy.
And such enshrined in the Statue of Liberty, separation of Church and State,
But something is amiss, for it seems as if ill seeds have begun to germinate.

Not that your background is squeaky clean given the past apartheid and slavery;
In other words, that mistreatment of black folk, Indian tribes too, tragically.
And hasn’t there been the Klu Klux Klan, and didn’t Abe Lincoln warn of Jesuits?
He believing Rome a coming threat, and I just wondering if anything fits.

You’ve also many militant Christians who would like to see Church and State return,
Not that such was reigning before, but in Europe, hence such would mean an about-turn,
'Cause so many fled to your shores to get away from such-cum-persecution,
And why I ask: Are there forces at work that are playing with your constitution?

Intrusive, restrictive laws have been introduced that once would’ve been unthinkable,
And terrorism deemed the reason, though could you have been infiltrated as well?
I mean, back doors oft work better than front doors, and then there are insiders, you know,
Those folk who have their own agenda, and yet, outwardly patriotism show.

And as well, America, you have made some very intimidating noises,
Are going after whistleblowers and are cracking down on opposing voices.
In fact, a prominent journalist said that you’re a cosmetic democracy,
And since world war two have tried to overthrow many governments, more than fifty!

Yes, you have been very busy offshore.

Militarily, I find your selective justice intriguing-cum-askew,
'Cause you deal to certain ills whilst ignoring same ills elsewhere where justice is due.
Thus some would claim that you’ve an agenda of some sort, and not a noble one,
'Cause how many times have you sought some pious outcome at the point of a gun?

Say, you’re not that lamb that becomes a dragon, are you (such mentioned in the Bible,
Revelation chapter thirteen)?
A power once peaceable that turns to much ill.
One that soon demands that all bow to it, one that images a past cruel power,
And according to this prophecy, this occurring just prior to Earth’s final hour.

Yes, you’re spending big time on military action, and such hotly debated,
'Cause there’s all those Americans living in poverty that has escalated.
Hence the homeless, those needing medical attention, and even education,
And thus America now no longer looking like such a wonderful nation.

There’re those who think some threats have been orchestrated, and that there’s some plan afoot,
A global grab, and all this being why calls for transparency have gone kaput,
Or why investigations are being thwarted, and citizens lives controlled more,
So, is there a New World Order, Reformation reversal knocking on the door?

Well, you do have so much clout, America, and some folk would say far too much clout,
All being why many are now questioning what America’s really all about,
And whether pieces of some kind of jigsaw are falling into place, and then snap,
An evil scene unfolds, it only then realized, and everyone caught in some trap.

After all, evil tells no one about its intentions, or it says otherwise,
Hence how folk are led to believe that something’s for their good when it’s nothing but lies.
All why I’m concerned, America, for security’s now trouncing liberty,
And, as so many of us would say, just ushering in another enemy.

Slowly erode free speech and civil-religious liberty and what’s left behind,
A power with all the power that it needs to do whatever it has in mind.
All this being why President Reagan warned of governments having too much control,
And why the uninformed, naïve or indifferent citizen digs their own hole.

Yes, there’s certainly something that’s going on, and such why President Kennedy
Warned of those behind the scene whose interference equalled that of an enemy.
And why it would seem that some stage is being set, things worsening for the common man,
Who often throughout history has borne the brunt of some power’s self serving plan.

So, what’s happened to the American dream, which some would say too long's taking,
Or was it never a reality, and now a nightmare in the making?
Shot, corrupt and immoral
presidents, freemasonry, mafia, gangsters,
Ghettos, rampant violence — and still, black folk being mistreated despite nice purrs.

Then there’s 9/11, it having opened a Pandora’s box, and hence why
There’s all those questions and that finger pointing, 'cause what they’ve been told, some don’t buy.
And no, it doesn't stop there, for there’s a whole raft of things bothering many,
And why I’m concerned, America, things looking on track prophetically.

6.  A Letter To The Pope

(Re the encyclical Caritas in Veritate, Pope Benedict XVI)

I hear you’re calling for a New World Order — in our interests, of course,
However, given history, such a proposal I can’t endorse.
For not long ago, a religious power reigned for hundreds of years,
And savagely so, using the state’s military might, hence my fears.

In the Christian Bible in the book of Revelation, chapter thirteen,
It appears to be warning of a repeat of that same historic scene;
That most will be fooled into going along with a new order of things,
From which I understand persecution and murder once again springs.

It says that this new world wide power will act just like the other one,
Forcing its dogma on all, sometime after its reign has begun.
Obviously it’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing; Satan’s vehicle, tool,
Which eventually will bring everybody under his rule.

Hence my concerns, lest you’re desiring what may fulfil this prophecy,
Which also appears to be tied in with the end of earth’s history.
Given the state of the world currently, and maybe what you’re suggesting,
Could it be earth’s end is near, and you, wrongly in such plans investing?

It appears that this new power — a New World Order, undoubtedly,
May be tied in with that past cruel religious power, intriguingly.
The Christian Bible says that the new power’s a copy of an old one,
And that this new religious power is one that all on earth should shun.

Hence why I can’t go along with calls for a New World Order, you see,
More so, one that in time would curtail civil and religious liberty.
Besides, no one body should control every nation, humanity,
And certainly not a religious one steering the military.

Yes, history often repeats itself, and New World Orders aren’t new,
At least that is, in the minds of those ones who such have tried to pursue.
After all, isn’t such the ultimate for those who’re power hungry,
Or who’re religiously deluded and unsound spiritually?

By that I mean, history is strewn with the likes, who’ve come and gone,
After having wickedly plundered, raped, tortured and stamped upon.
All in the name of religion, or some other justification,
Working their murderous way from city to city, nation to nation.

And then the world, or so they’ve hoped, and might have — but not, fortunately;
And who would have it otherwise who values freedom and liberty?
For power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely,
Despite the best of intentions, or efforts of humanity.

It appears that the new power somehow gains the confidence of all,
Managing to deceive — that is, those who foolishly for such fall.
And given it’s a world wide power, a New World Order, clearly,
I’d encourage you to reconsider your proposal; Yours sincerely,

By Lance Landall

And that past religious power? Papal Rome.

“The Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind.”
W.E. Lecky, Rise and influence of rationalism in Europe, volume 2, p.32.

"...whose MORTAL WOUND HAD BEEN HEALED” (Rev 13:12).

7.  A Letter To Pope Francis

Going by God’s Word, which all Christians should, all men are equal, but none Holy,
’Cause we’re fallen, sinful, mortal creatures, and thus all in need of Calvary.
Hence my approaching you as a fellow brother, for things you’ve said concern me,
Though such not all I may address, 'cause other things bother considerably.

I as a peace loving person, and a Christian, was appalled to hear you say:

“If someone insulted my mother, I would punch them,” which is hardly Christ’s way.
Nor prudent given Papal Rome’s violent, bloody, oppressive history,
And so completely at odds with “turn the other cheek”-cum-Christianity,

And, at the end of the day, it simply not something a church leader should say.

“It’s only natural,” you said, and I thought, what about sanctification,
The Holy Spirit’s moulding and empowering, we thus a new creation.
And haven’t you condemned violence, and doesn’t violence beget violence?
Hence those brawls we see, the arrival of the police and oft an ambulance.

If someone insulted my mum, I’d show then the door, certainly speak my mind,
But punch them? No, for such a sad response would declare me hot-headed or blind.
And such would put me offside with Christ, even Paul who was once known as Saul,
A persecutor who became a pacifist, loving example to all.

Sure Christ chased the moneychangers out of the temple (though He’d good reason to),
But His prerogatives aren’t our prerogatives, and we not reverence due.
And this, by the way (and respectfully),
Why I question popes having ascended the throne of Caesars, effectively,
And their acceptance of adulation that only God is due, He alone Holy.

Yes, no apostle ever sat on a throne, nor amongst treasure or glory,
They treading the same humble path as their Saviour, their lives a different story.
And we not even to bow to Holy angels, let alone some earthy man,
Who, lets be honest, is worshipped by many as if he were God, rather than,

A fallen, human, mortal, fallible man.

I also heard you say that freedom of expression must have its limits, and,
Given how Papal Rome once snuffed such, I wondered, has Satan got something planned?
Well, I mean to say, Papal Rome seems to be on the upper — influential —
Its Napoleonic wound having healed, and I foreseeing much potential.

You see, there is that documented clandestine Jesuit activity,
In other words, their post-Reformation interfering with democracy,
Their counter Reformation measures, and their great hatred of democracy,

And hence why I’m so concerned, for few are protesting today, unlike before,
And thus Church and State looming closer, a New World Order knocking at the door.

And you being the first Jesuit pope — and as I understand it,
Are subservient to the Jesuit General (the Black Pope)
Who'll take over when the time is right, and as planned, on your throne sit,
And in the past, Papal Rome having used the military might of others,

And I meaning, to its own benefit.

So please forgive my frankness, but that talk of punches and limiting free speech,
Hardly gels with Scripture, God’s grace, and may say more about the Vatican’s reach.
After all, you’ve a billion followers, seem to address the world via TV,
“And the whole world was astonished and followed the beast” just seems to click with me.

That beast being a power mentioned in the book of Revelation, you see.

And there you have it, courtesy of free speech that God has granted to us all,
And no doubt Earth's greatest defender of free speech would be the apostle Paul.
He once having persecuted those who spoke contrary to what he believed,
Yes, he deludedly thinking they were wrong when it was him who’d been deceived.

All why we shouldn’t try to put our stamp on others, or encroach on free speech,
Nor throw a punch, lashing out like Peter, who a better way Christ sought to teach,
And who said, “My kingdom’s not of this world,” and why Christians shouldn’t seek power,
And rather than trust in fallen man, patiently wait until Christ’s coming hour,

He appearing in the sky, not upon Earth; and every earthly kingdom will devour.

Oh, by the way, if the Vatican is that “beast” power of Revelation
That most folk will be amazed at and follow (thereby forfeiting salvation),
Then I’d assume there’d be some fancy footwork, smoke and mirrors, signs, wonders, and,
You, Sir, perhaps having pulled off something amazing, hailed throughout each land.

And as for the second “beast” that’s an image of this first one, I would assume
It to be another Church and State power that will also be courting doom.
One having given room to the first “beast,” and made up of Protestants, I dare say,
And as for its embryo, I’d imagine we’re looking at the USA,

A very different USA, a lamb that somehow becomes a dragon, say.

So why Protestants and the USA?


Most Americans are wildly patriotic, and that means Protestants too,
Who’re seen to tie Christianity in with their country — well, most of them do —
And many of these USA Protestants wanting Church and State tethered; and
They reaching out to you, Pope Francis, even taking your prized Mary in hand,

And some calling for reunification
and you, reaching out to them too.

Now this (against what the early Protestants believed) is where I see a link,
America and the Vatican moving closer-cum-New World Order Inc.
In other words, a religious-political “beast” power, an “image,” say,
One that will soon govern Earth, it much like that one back in Martin Luther’s day.

And I would assume that sabbatarians would be persecuted again,
Sunday observance soon being forced on all via some legislative pen.
Yes, I’ve heard you calling for a return to Sunday sacredness, and not just you,
But many American Protestants too thus showing allegiance to who?

Now, I don’t have a problem with you personally, but just biblically,
For no matter how good a man is, he’s a concern if errant Scripturally.
And hence why the Bible warns of false prophets, those whose teachings clash with God’s Word,
For God’s the God of truth (not just the God of love) who doesn't want error heard;

And I'm reminded of how Papal Rome once wrongly withheld the Bible, God's Word.

Though a pope may condemn poverty, war and evil, speak of kindness and love,
He’s still under God’s judgment if not in line with all God’s revealed from above.
In other words, God’s Law for example, it not a ceremonial law,
 But moral and perpetual, not to be touched by some interfering paw.

But what do I see you promoting, a worship day that’s foreign to Scripture,
 The seventh day Sabbath-cum-Saturday having been removed from the picture.
Yes, neither God nor His apostles commanding such, and why on Earth would they?
For there’s nothing wrong with that seventh day Sabbath, but a great deal with Sunday,

A universal day that'll soon to be hailed by all, I believe -- well, almost all.

Hence why those who’ll worship the “beast” will turn on those who worship the Creator,
Just like Cain (who worshipped wrongly too) turned on Able — murdered him, what’s more.
They keeping Sunday, remembering Christ’s resurrection, not His Sabbath day,
And nor His creatorship; enter evolution, that non-hallowed Sunday.

And oh, how Mary’s venerated, she not equal with Christ, nor above him, and
She no intercessor, queen of Heaven, nor to be worshipped, put on some stand.
And yet, popes swinging incense before her, kneeling before her, kissing her feet,
Bowing and praying to an idol of her — oh, how Christ they blaspheme and cheat!

The truth is, that Mary was never blessed above all women, but was simply
The most blessed among women, and thus such rituals meaningless, quite frankly.
And so, with respect and concern, I point you to God’s Word which has this to say:
That those who stray from the path of right and truth will have to face His judgment day.

And err Catholicism has, pagan, occultic symbols rife within her,
Including idol after idol, doctrines that aren’t Scriptural, and why, Sir,
I once again point to the Word of God which condemns all who act contrary,
All who even speak contrary to its teachings, and wrongly exalt Mary.

Neither God nor the apostles said that church ministers were not to marry,
Such but Babylonian, and nor does the Bible speak of purgatory,
And nor, by the way, does it endorse any monastery or nunnery.
So why would Catholicism teach such, unless of course, it wasn’t Christian,
Or not truly Christian, and I guess this taking me back to where I came in.

You said:

“Any form of violence inflicted upon women is blasphemy against God,
because God was born of a woman.”

Yes, this you said when saying sorry for slapping a woman’s hand, but wrongly,
Because blasphemy is what’s personally directed against God, you see.
Thus you’re wrong on both counts, the slapping and that statement, which shows you’re fallible,
And given all those paedophile priests, history seems to be ringing a bell.

Yours sincerely.

Papal Rome is really just pagan Rome in ecclesiastical dress — and hence the term Roman Catholic. It’s a Church and State Power with its own domain, flag, currency and stamps, along with Swiss military guards.

"The Papacy is not other than the Ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof."
Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679)

Note: Collier's Encyclopedia — Saturday, seventh day of the week.

"So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation" (Gen 2:3, ESV).

"Remember the
Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your  female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy" (Ex 20:8-11, ESV).


"He [a past power] shall speak words against the Most High [God], and shall [did] wear out the saints of the Most High [persecuted them], and shall think to change the times and the law [God's Ten Commandments]..." (Dan 7:25, ESV).

“We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.”
Peter Geiermann, The Converts Catechism of Catholic Doctrine p 50, (1946 ed.).

The only reason that I mention Catholicism is, because I believe that biblical prophecy refers and points to it (both past and present), and that evidence attests to it, as being in opposition to both God's Word and will, and a danger to liberty and freedom, and this, despite what Catholicism might say in its defence.

8.  The New World Order

It’s all about worship — the hidden worship of man.

Julie loved chatting with her dad, and today was no exception, though her thoughts were much more serious today.
“What do you make of the New Word Order thing, Dad? Is it just some farcical theory like many people say?”
“No, Julie, it’s for real alright. Even the pope and some U.S. presidents have endorsed such, and others too,
Thus, such is clearly on the agenda — however, a One World Government is hardly something that is new.

And lest I’m confusing you here, they’re both one and the same thing, an order seeking control of humanity,
Not that such is said openly, but there is plenty of evidence proving so, and then there is history.”
“What do you mean by history, Dad?”  “Well, many have had their eyes on the world, and not just on other nations,
The Holy Roman Empire for one, which ruled for hundreds of years, and committed atrocious violations.

And hence the concern of many given that the pope has been calling for a New World Order quite recently,
One that he said needs to be backed by an armed force, by the way, and I hear he’s put his hand up somehow, interestingly.
At the end of the day, the Holy Roman Empire that once was, still is, despite it appearing more benign,
And that’s when something can be far more dangerous, given that it’s less obvious, and thus folk think all’s fine.

Evidence says that the pope’s just a figurehead, subservient to the commander of the Jesuit Order,
One created to reverse the Protestant Reformation via infiltration, and via crossing any boarder.
One that’s also intent on destroying the U.S. constitution, it’s said, and haven’t we noticed such?
'Cause laws like the Patriot Act have made it much easier for inside forces to evilly liberty clutch.

Bear in mind that more and more Protestants are making overtures to Rome, and that the Vatican wields much clout,
And, by the way, has an intelligence service second to none, secret agents that its wishes carry out.
Thus, we’re not talking about imaginary things, dealing with fantasy, but in facts and reality,
And hence that concern many have, a concern that many Christians even link to some biblical prophecy.

Others are fuelling this New World Order too, some secretly, some openly, different beats, but the same drum,
And some are bedfellows — among them, Freemasonry being a major player — yes, all propelling what will come.
But despite them achieving their goal, I believe that Divine justice will have the last say, but not before much ill,
Which will catch the gullible by surprise, come those who fall for the spiel, and who willingly come under its spell.

So, I’d keep your eyes on things, Julie, watching for some political, religious merger, and set apart day,
One universally accepted and legislated as being in the interests of all, no doubt Sunday.
The truth is, we’re all being set up, hence certain political manoeuvres, behind the scenes manipulation,
As one thing’s for sure, such will be enforced whether we like it or not, the proof that it’s an evil creation.”

“What exactly do you mean by proof, Dad?”  “Well, I’m referring to force, Julie, which is always a clear-cut sign,
For no matter how noble the intent of anyone, force is contradictory, and clearly out of line.
Those with genuine hearts and minds-cum-those who cherish love and truth, never violate human rights, nor think to,
For only the deluded, those with an evil agenda, those who’re callous and indifferent, such pursue.

You see, when we use force to implement what we think is best for all, we cross a non-negotiable line,
A critical line — thereby leaving no line — and where there’s no such line, things can only but from thereon decline.
It’s that simple, Julie, hence why I couldn’t condone a New World Order, for such wouldn’t let us vote with our feet,
And that which wouldn't allow such, and having crossed that non-negotiable line, inevitably would mistreat.

And when there’re strange bedfellows pushing for the same thing, though each for their own end, of which one must come out on top,
There just has to be an eventual evil outcome, one that all the will in the world won’t be able to stop.
That is, turnaround, for the jaws of the new 'beast' will have all firmly in its grip, they no longer free to do and say,
And all because they went along with such, perhaps even hollered for such, when they should’ve known such wouldn’t pay.”

9.  What's Really Going On?

And then comes some kind of a saviour who delivers peace, and who might that be?
But this midst humans having surrendered their liberty for security.
Yes, humanity having been frightened into submission — in other words,
The acceptance of a very controlled planet, sense having flown with the birds.

And much that’s frightened us no accident, but the work of some behind the scene,
Insiders and outsiders, some things planned or not prevented, and now routine.
And some folk asking, “Who might some terrorists actually be linked with, and,
Is it all designed to get us backing who knows what, who, such carefully planned?”


Folk even clamouring for such security, they disregarding the cost,
Much like turkeys clamouring for Christmas, and in time, sensing that all is lost.
And such the result of ignorance or disbelief, a trust that was misplaced,
Many so naive, or their head in the sand when certain things should’ve been faced.

It’s just another conspiracy theory, folk say, and thus how they get caught,
And unwittingly the very ones who’re up to no good foolishly support.
And this because these ones they support are oft wolves in sheep’s clothing, evil men,
But men who cleverly paint themselves as noble or godly, and hence my pen.

Now if I may digress with your permission:

Could the anti-Christ that the Bible speaks of be a wolf in sheep’s clothing too,
Some person or power looking good when actually bad, thus false, not true?
Yes, appearing to be for God when against God, for man when against man, and,
Fooling via signs and wonders, some coup that has folk applauding throughout each land.

Yes, some kind of saviour who the world will follow in amazement, listen to,
But they simply beguiled by a monster of whose intention they had no clue.
And bedfellows aplenty, their plans having worked, and folk just like those turkeys,
Christmas not as they’d wished, the steam from their self-imposed pot waffling with the breeze.

So what’s really going on, or am I as mistaken as I’d prefer to be,
Given that if I’m not we’re headed for an end that folk will rue bitterly.
And this being why we should guard against anything that nibbles at liberty,
Encroaches on free speech, hinders access to truth, gives room to skulduggery.

10.  Donald Trump?


I can understand some Americans considering this man, but dear me,
He’s far from the calibre of one who should be seeking the presidency.
For what comes from the mouth reveals the heart, and why I’m not liking what I see,
And nor that ill coming from others who’re also seeking the presidency.

The negative talk and behaviour that we’re hearing and seeing currently,
Is what has brought about much ill already, ISIS for one, undoubtedly.
In other words, that swaggering, gun-toting, “We’ll smoke ’em out,” mentality,
Which, though certain action is needed, will only lead to further tragedy.

I fear the days of presidents like Lincoln are over, it a whole new game,
And it has been for some time, America a country that’s hardly the same.
And why Americans need to be looking at where the rot’s been coming from,
Given that moral decay, crime and violence are themselves a ticking bomb.

All why many would say that it’s time you cleaned up your own backyard, and quickly,
And this, before you point any finger, preen yourselves patriotically.
For you’ve certainly a checked past, and are looking pretty shabby today,
Hollywood reflecting your shame, how you’ve lowered the bar and gone so astray.

It concerns me how many of you can’t seem to see what the rest of us see,
We more objective, I guess, our country not seen as if the world, quite frankly.
In other words, America having become too proud, the land of the free,
Which a sound Australian journalist calls a cosmetic democracy.

Well, you’ve lost so much, haven’t you, perhaps too distracted, and out with the old,
Your real enemy working within and behind, and this you have long been told.
But somehow it all alludes you, and once again you’re rushing for a saviour,
Your strong desire for needed change ignoring dangerous words and behaviour.

Who will you call on next? The pope? And isn’t that what Abraham Lincoln feared?
So when will you learn that men, (or women), aren’t the answer? Obama once cheered.
All why Solomon said, there’s nothing new under the sun, hence why I’d take care,
For those things that you’re failing to see are what I believe you’ve more cause to fear.

"I see a very dark cloud on our horizon. And that dark cloud is coming from Rome."
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."

Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951)

"I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish — where no public official either requests or accepts instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source — no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials — and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all."

11.  Can We Look Now, America?

Okay, so you’ve had your fun, or is it actually a nightmare, and how,
Because we can’t believe what we’re seeing, and why I’m asking, “Can we look now?”
It’s like a Punch and Judy show that’s run amuck, something we’ve not seen before,
And America looking like it’s lost the plot, and oh, what else is in store?

I’ve heard many say, “Well, that’s Americans for you,” as if you’re all odd folk,
And now America having become the butt of a very scary joke.
Some simply wanting a woman president, as if that’s the answer, dear me,
And others supporting a renegade, though both embroiled in controversy,

And hey, women capable of being just as treacherous, cruel and deadly.

Yes, I’m all for free speech, but what’s happened to America the Beautiful,
Because what’s going on isn’t admirable, but to be frank, farcical.
I guess it’s a sign of the times, and we thought Disneyland was in Anaheim,
And that it was only adolescents who were into such stunts and pantomime.

So what’s up, America, because we’re all scratching our heads over it all,
One hardly a knight in shining armour, nor the other the belle of the ball.
And the Statute of Liberty already embarrassed, and as for Abe, well,
He’d surely be turning in his grave, yanking on the lid to keep out the chill.


 It’s hardly a laughing matter, but what America seems to have come to,
Though we’re sure such isn’t the case with all of you, and why we’re sorry for you.
For come voting time, it seems you’re caught between the devil and the deep blue sea,
Because something’s gone terribly wrong with your seemingly hijacked country.

So when will it be okay to look, America, or will it never be?
Something disturbingly systemic having infected your once proud country.
“I didn’t have sexual relations with...,” the tip of the iceberg, it seems,
Hence WikiLeaks having a field day, your country coming apart at the seams.

Land of the Free, huh, but what good is a country without any dignity?
Corruption, immorality and right royal gaffes dogging the presidency.
Yes, it such a tragedy, our hands over our eyes, and we counting the cost,
And wondering just how much more what-once-made-America-great will be lost.

Okay, so the world’s in a mess, but given what America has stood for,
And its power and clout, it’s rather alarming and pretty hard to ignore.
So please, wake up before you’re fooled by some sleight of hand, and return to your roots,
Scrutinizing with the eyes of an eagle, because you’ll know them by their fruits.

But to be honest, America, and frank, who’s really running your country,
Those you see or don’t see? Is America a cosmetic democracy?
Yes, too many Americans otherwise absorbed, indeed humanity,
Folk too caught up with fantasy, rubbish TV, rather than with reality,

And the fox already in the hen house, it not just about Punch and Judy.

12.  Letter To America

(Sorry Alistair Cook, author of Letter From America)

From the moment folk sought the shores of what would become America, safety,

Freedom from persecution, despots and zealots, that Church and State tyranny,
Hence the Statue of Liberty,
There were those who sought the opposite, hence Lincoln’s well-founded fears, you see,
They heartless, callous, fanatical, militant, and a cunning enemy.

They also religious and political, ravenously power hungry,
With global aspirations, European connections, unsurprisingly.
Yes, they very dangerous, very busy in America, but disguised,
Artful blenders, chameleon-like infiltrators, and thus not recognised.

And therefore, they not only behind much, but hidden behind much, silent foes,
They donning different masks, wolves in sheep's clothing, and inflicting many woes.
And such hasn’t stopped, they having almost reached their goal, and thus why we now see,
A changed America, and such the fulfilment of biblical prophecy.

Yes, America having got in the way of their plans, control of mankind,
And why since America’s founding there’s little that they haven’t been behind,
The destruction of the American constitution in their evil mind.
Such known and documented, but everyone looking elsewhere, seemingly,
Distractions, nonsense, ignorance alive and well, and why what will be will be,

Que sera, sera.

So often folk don’t spot the obvious, just can’t be told, don’t learn from the past,
Contemporary views and thoughts having dulled and blinded, and there goes their grasp.
So too those ancient paths and the good way, enter deception and trickery,
A lamb that will metamorphose into a dragon, goodbye democracy,

Or was it only cosmetic, anyway?

13.  Make America Great Again?

It’s my strong belief that the world is really run by those who’re behind the scene,
And who will use any person or any vehicle, but remaining unseen.
So any attempt to “drain the swamp,” or some, “Come together,” movement, won’t stop them,
And may even suit them, pleasing rhetoric and some clever cover aiding them.

Their end being: Earth their way, and it under their total control — yes, you and I,
All eventually forced to succumb to their will — otherwise, will suffer or die.
But most fooled by the rhetoric, even seeming progression, they willing lackeys,
Unable to discern the truth of the matter, thus only too willing to please.

Oh, how many so-called Saviours we’re seen already in the form of mortal men,
Or women; their failure, betrayal or corruption more fodder for the writer’s pen.
And world domination no new thing, but this time more subtle and clever, maybe,
And by the way, such a scenario predicted via biblical prophecy.


“Make America Great Again,” could be a Trojan horse, and one day, enter force,
Though even if such were an innocent movement, it turning nasty in due course.
The world forced to follow suit, one way or another, and who knows where that might end,
And why I’m less excited and more concerned, and thinking, you should be too, dear friend.

And bear in mind those assassinations, and I thinking of John F. Kennedy,
Lincoln too, and how their deaths shattered many dreams, left folk feeling angry, empty.
All why excitement can be premature, those behind the scene planting or felling,
Though many so-called Saviours promising us things when something just isn’t gelling.

And it's no wonder, the characters of some of these saviours seriously flawed,
And skeletons hanging in their closet, and why too quick folk are seen to applaud.
They too accepting of words and actions that should be a warning, and why it is,
They’re soon disappointed by that failure, betrayal or corruption that’s hers or his.

By Lance Landall

“And at another moment I [God] may declare concerning a nation or a kingdom that I will build and plant it [bless], but if it does evil in My sight, not listening to My voice, then I will change my mind about the good that I had intended to do to it” (Jer 18:9,10).

On the 18 October 2018, this poem (previously titled "In God We Trust?") was altered, added to and blended
to some degree with another poem of mine (now deleted) called "You Voted, America."

14. In God We Trust, I Hear You Say

In God we trust, I hear you say, America, but hey, come certain clouds of grey,
You rush for mortal saviours, even clutch at Church and State along the way;
 But God not having given you such a mandate, you not a theocracy,
Never were and never will be, but a mixed multitude, in reality.

God isn’t into earthly kingdoms any more, ancient Israel since divorced,
And deluded power-hungry governments always having oppressed and forced.
Your new look government looking like one too that wants to put its stamp on things,
And hence that alarm bell that in the mind of many concerned observers rings.

I’m reminded of Constantine, who, in order to prop up his ailing kingdom,
Blended Church and State, and I see Americans suffering from the same fate.
For suffering there will be — well, eventually, if such proves to be true,
’Cause no matter how bad things appear, there are some things that we shouldn’t pursue.

Yes, we know where things went after Constantine blended Church and State; Papal Rome,
And hundreds of years of persecution, all why many called your shores their home.
And the last thing they would've wanted is an American version, which one day,
Given America’s clout, could be forced on the world, starting with shades of grey.

So who might that second Constantine be? A born again President, maybe,
Constantine’s conversion dubious too, and why things that hardly gel we see.
“You’ll know them by their fruits,” the Bible warns, and there’s no time like now for scrutiny,
’Cause Church and State have been busy courting, and why a wedding I’m sure we’ll see.

When leaders surround themselves with those who nod and bow, “Yes” men and women, and
Quickly remove criticizers and opposers, those who might know what’s really planned,
And when leaders don't want their sins known, and malign speakers of truth, then is seen
Not just hypocrisy, 
but a threat to liberty and freedom, a past scene.

You can blame this or that for Trump winning the election, but win he did,
No one needing to be duped, all able to do their own homework, lift that lid.
But failure to do so having had consequences, though that’s democracy,
Something that’s put at risk where there’re changes for the worst within society,

And where wisdom's gone the same sad way as selflessness, truth and morality.

Swing the pendulum too far left and there will be a backlash to the right, and
Swing the pendulum too far right and there will be a backlash to the left, and
Maybe the pendulum getting stuck one day, though either swing detrimental,
A real threat to democracy, and as for Trump — well, things are starting to tell.

Robert A. Heinlein

The following is an online Time article, Jeff Nesbit, August 15, 2016

With Donald Trump’s campaign losing ground among independent voters in recent weeks due to a series of well publicized mistakes, the GOP presidential nominee has tripled down with the one base of political support that has steadfastly remained with him—white, evangelical voters—by promising to dismantle the laws that separate church and state in America.
It is a provocative move designed to energize a key conservative demographic vital to the national Republican Party, but one that could potentially anger moderate and independent voters once it becomes more widely known.
In a startling off-the-cuff speech to a gathering of pastors in Florida last week, Trump threw away his prepared remarks and promised, over and over, to give evangelical churches the power to essentially spend unlimited sums of tax-exempt money on politics. Nearly 80% of evangelicals already support Trump. It is one of his largest supportive demographics—and one of the GOP’s most reliable voting blocs.
“I said, ‘I’m going to take this into my own hands and I’m going to figure a way that we can get you back your freedom of speech,’” Trump told the evangelical pastors. “It will be so great for the evangelicals, for the pastors, for the ministers, for the priests, for America.”
Trump promised that one of his first efforts as president would be to dismantle laws that keep Christian churches from spending tax-exempt money on political advocacy. He promised to vigorously attack a law established in the 1950s—from legislation sponsored by then-Senator Lyndon Johnson amending the U.S. tax code rules—that prevents tax-exempt organizations such as churches or educational institutions from endorsing political candidates. The ban on 501 C-3 charitable organizations from engaging in political advocacy has come to be known as the "Johnson Amendment."
“If I get elected President, one of the early things, one of the absolute first things I’m going to do is work on totally knocking out the Johnson Amendment,” he said. “The power you have is so enormous. It’s not like you represent two percent of the country and it’s going to be difficult. You’re probably 75, 80 percent. If you want to put your full weight … I mean, can you imagine if all of your people start calling up the local congressman and the local senator?”
Trump promised the evangelical pastors that, by abolishing the prohibition on churches spending tax-exempt money on political advocacy, it would reverse the slow, steady decline in church attendance and public attitudes toward Christian beliefs in the United States.
“And if you look what’s happened to religion, if you look at what’s happening to Christianity, and you look at the number of people going to churches—and evangelicals know this also—it’s not on this kind of a climb, it’s on this kind of a climb of slow and steady in the wrong direction,” Trump said. “A lot of it has to do with the fact that you’ve been silenced. You’ve been silenced like a child has been silenced.”
Trump told the pastors that evangelical voters would make the difference in key battleground states like Florida, Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania. And if white, evangelical Christians put him in the White House, he promised to return the favor.
“You have a chance to do something that will be earth shaking,” he said. “I literally mean it: earth shaking. You got to get your people out to vote.”
Trump, whose religious background consists of childhood visits to Sunday school, also told the evangelical pastors that he was their best hope in the 2016 presidential election. He paraphrased evangelical megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, who has said the Bible has called for a strongman such as Trump in the White House—and his characterization of him to make the point.
“’Donald Trump may not be perfect, but he knows how to win. Maybe he’s not as good and maybe he’s not as perfect on the Bible,’” Trump said, quoting Jeffress. “But I did go to Sunday school for many years. I want to tell you that. Okay? He said, ‘He may not be perfect, but he’s ours.’”
Much of the media coverage of the Trump candidacy in the past few weeks has focused on mistakes (like his remark on “Second Amendment people” and Hillary Clinton). But Trump’s stunning proposal to change the 501 C-3 tax rules so that white, evangelical churches can spend money on political advocacy as an arm of the national GOP isn’t a mistake—it’s a move designed to save his presidential campaign at the expense of a time-honored principle of American democracy.

15. The Obama Syndrome

(With due respect to Barack Obama.)

Dear friend. It never ceases to disturb and amaze me
How people put great faith in a man (or woman) foolishly.
Was Barack Obama a saviour? No. Nor could George Bush be,
So, let’s not kid ourselves, and face up to reality.

The answer lies outside ourselves, we’re ships in a bottle,
And there we will remain despite whose hand’s on the throttle.
Even Christians surprise me looking to men longingly,
For things will not get better it’s stated biblically.

Now, forgive me preaching, but as far as Earth goes, friend,
It’s very clear that its lifespan is racing to an end.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work that out,
So, I’d give this much thought, for that it needs it, there’s no doubt.

By all means let’s do what we can to make Earth a better place,
But the reality that Earth’s on borrowed time all should face.
Personally, I have a hope beyond, see a way through,
And the question that I would like to ask, friend, is, “Do you?”

You see, for me it’s God, obviously, but what about you?
Is it chance, fate, blind faith in man, for that will hardly do.
We all know deep inside that something’s up, it’s on our lips,
Yes, Armageddon some call it, or the Apocalypse.

Neither Barack Obama, nor those who've come after him, can
Provide an answer to this dilemma that’s facing man.
And this, all will eventually see, if not before, so,
Should we put faith in popes, kings or presidents? I say, “No!”

Whoever’s in power at any time may well be a good man,
Or woman, but no human can come up with a rescue plan.
Ultimately such is beyond us — forget Superman

And don’t hold your breath should someone say, “Hey, I’ve got a plan.”

Yes, there is hope, but it doesn’t lie here, nor with man.

made by someone that Donald Trump was appointed by God.

16.  A Word In Your Ear, Donald

I heard you say you’re a Christian, yet Christ never mistreated anybody,
And in fact, condemned those who did, telling everyone to act humanely.
Yes, “If you hurt anyone, you hurt Me too,” He conveyed, and spoke of a day,
One when He’ll judge the words and acts of all, because harming isn’t His way.

All why He died to save, and thus wants everyone treated with dignity,
Persecution and torture angering Him, likewise hatred and bigotry.
And this why we should mind how we feel, mind what we say and do, and such we will
If love truly beats within us, and the same strong disgust for evil and ill.

God made the Earth, not countries, nor borders, and He came to break divisions down,
Promising the contrite and faithful He’d wrap them in His righteous, gracious gown.
He the humblest of all despite His majesty, full of loving, tender care,
Not one who rants and rages, nor one who thumps His fist, for there lies ill and fear.

Though His followers call themselves Christians, it doesn't mean that all of them are,
Nor that Christ doesn’t love those outside His flock, and why on each hand there’s a scar.
And so, be one a Muslim, Jew, atheist or Christian, they’re still His children,
One way or another, and harming any of His children is called a sin.

All why, despite opposing views and beliefs, and the freedom to express them,
We’re to show the same love as Christ — and with tears in our eyes, any wrong condemn.
We’re not to  stamp our feet, nor pridefully wave our country’s flag as if to say:
“This is our land! So stay away!” — for who made the Earth, formed humans out of clay?

And say, if my child murdered someone, would you interrogate and torture me,
Or if it were some members of my church? — the errant always midst society.
Oh dear, for how unfair, folly at its best, wisdom at its worst, and one cursed,
’Cause such isn’t the way of Christ, who one day soon, will see that it’s all reversed.

All why I’m glad, because we’ve seen it all before, old failures dressed as new,
Anything but the better way; a different car, but same old avenue.
So, call yourself a Christian, but if you’re veering from the ways of Christ, I’d mind,
Because you won’t receive His blessing, but one day, something less welcoming find.


Especially if what some women have said is true, and you haven’t confessed,
Nor done your time, for God’s recorded every secret thing, which will be addressed.
Yes, no matter what good you may do, and more so if saying you’re born again,
For God will only be saving repentant, truthful and honourable men.

It may well be that God has allowed your ascension, but hey, that doesn’t mean
You automatically meet His approval; it simply the End-time scene.
In other words, your presence a rebuke, because America’s gone astray,
And just like ancient Israel,
Americans too, have serious lessons coming their way, and cause to wail.

“I’m going to be the best president that God ever made,” I heard you say.
Well, “Pride goeth before a fall,” it’s said, and God’s grace not covering foul play.
Hence this word in your ear, and why I would mind any advisors, false prophets,
And remembering that the Holy God above strongly condemns hypocrites.

It's worth bearing in mind too, that voters can be caught between a rock and a hard place.

"For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil" (Eccl 12:14, NIV).

"Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops" (Luke 12:3, NASB).

“For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins [God’s grace is made void], but [rather] a fearful expectation of judgment [unless we genuinely repent, put things right where we can]...” (Heb 10:26,27, ESV).

17.  Justice Isn't Served By Unbridled Power

We all knew what the outcome would be, didn’t we, 'cause that’s how it is nowadays,
And this why we shouldn’t expect justice, though still shouting for it, our hearts ablaze.
Power, corruption and weak men going hand in hand, and the noble but a few,
Leaders so often misleading, be it the man in the street or saint in a pew.

One man might stand true, but we know where he’ll end up, supporters vilified too,
The real threat still holding office, but under the sun, of course, there is nothing new.
Thus it’s up to you and I not to be fooled, the crowd looking after its own skin,
And we, the won’t bow down, bearing that cross that ensures that all’s well and sound within.

Goodness and right never have the cold face of arrogance, nor boast, attack and smear,
Unlike he who hijacks the podium, and on any Bible would falsely swear.
Justice isn’t served by unbridled power, and God’s not found where there’s delusion,
Nor any miscarriage of justice that reeks of cronyism and collusion.

18.  When They Cry "Peace And Safety"

Going by God’s Word, it appears a time may come when regarding the world, Earth,
Things might seem safe again, and peace reigning, but just like labour pains that give birth,
Sudden destruction coming out of nowhere, and there’s got to be reasons why,
God obviously still not happy with things, everyone been fed a lie.

All why God’s Word says, “Here’s a call for the endurance of the saints,” God’s people,
“Those who keep the commandments of God,” thus all not well under each church steeple.
God’s Law having been done away with, supposedly, some Christians selling out,
All why they’ll have cause for fear too (like those scoffers) come Christ’s returning shout.

Yes, society having bought a lie, and many Christians too, it appears,
Hence why come that unexpected sudden destruction, there’ll be much cause for tears.
God not having said there’ll be peace on Earth, except for a manufactured one,

And safety too; the only peace and safety coming with the returning Son.

So mind any efforts being made, Christ having warned that they’ll come to naught, and
That our hope lies in Him, not the plans of men, who before God’s judgment will stand.
They having formed their own religion, a hybrid designed to suit everyone —
Well, most, that is — thus shunning the apostolic gospel once shared by the Son.

By Lance Landall

“For when they shall say, peace and security: then shall sudden destruction come upon them, as the pains
upon her that is with child, and they shall not escape.” (1Thess 5:3, Douay-Rheims Version).

19.  I Believe It's You, America

In Revelation, the Bible’s apocalyptic book, a power is seen,
One that changes character around the time of Christ’s return, becoming mean.
Once peaceful, innocent like a lamb, but then nasty like a dragon, and which
To an errant, baleful religious cart its political horses will hitch.

I believe this power’s you, America, ’cause, my, haven’t you changed. Greatly!
Things going on that once were unthinkable, clamps on freedom and liberty.
Loud, angry, threatening, demanding, White House voices, self-serving choices, and
Fear, anxiety, unrest now stalking your once far more democratic land.

You’re globally positioned, speak of a New World Order, have cosied up to
Certain evangelicals, those who (wrongly so) Church and State wish to pursue.
They as loud as those sounds coming from the White House, some seeming to come from there,
A White House surrounded by clouds of controversy, and plans afoot, I fear.

Eventually, this power the Bible speaks of, demands all worship it,
No surprises there, and why with you, America, the pieces seem to fit.
In God we trust, you’ve shouted, so many of you militant, gun toters too,
Your hand shaking hands with a past power that’s assaults and murders weren’t a few.

Oh, America, you’ve made the world sick with your junk food, corrupted our minds too,
Hollywood a cesspool of immorality — oh, how what’s right you poo hoo.
You’ve been so prideful, unhealthily patriotic, and a warring you’ve gone,
Yes, places you shouldn’t have, and now the rest of the world you’re setting upon.

Say, where have all those values gone? And yet, high and mighty you’re still seen to stand,
Hypocrisy glaring, racism and bigotry plaguing your blood-spilled land.
Much looking just like a form of godliness, not the real thing, unlike before,
When a very different USA, and very different way, we saw.

Now I’m waiting for that day when your form of godliness will pronounce a day,
One that some time after its introduction, to further enforcement will stray.
Yes, all forced to worship this power, we’re told, and many desiring Sunday,
And all roads leading to Rome, as they say, an “image” all will have to obey.

Yes, it’s all too late America, your sad course predicted via prophecy,
And biblical prophecy is always bang on the money, it not funny.
Hence those sorrows throughout your land, and indeed the whole world, it way off track too,
And soon to fall into line with that “beast” power that very clearly is you.

All this is why your President’s surrounded by dominionists, the stage set,
And why in time, America, Church and state you’ll get, and all caught in that net.
Oh, how history repeats itself, no one seeing it coming but a few,
God’s Kingdom not of this current world, but it established on the Earth made new.

Hence why God is removing His restraining hand, and not all woes random, but
No doubt the work of those with plans afoot, and upon whom Heaven’s gates will shut.
Yes, they too will suffer God’s judgments, His righteous sickle in His coming hand,
He will aware of those End-time events both errant men and Satan have planned.

Yes, enter the “dragon,” persecution soon to follow, and who would’ve thought,
America, once land of the free, whose forefathers, against Church and State fought.
But something has happened that’s changing all that, loud warnings having been ignored,
Hence that “image” to the “beast,” that form of godliness offensive to our Lord.

Hence His consuming fire when He returns, separation of the sheep and goats,
And thereby, His strong rebuff of any Church and State castles with their moats.
Dominionists sure to be surprised, Christ knowing nothing of their false doctrine,
Which, because it leads folk astray, constitutes rebellion and grievous sin.

Yes, you’ve lost your way, America, having got drunk on false teachings, fables,
Hence why you’re no longer thinking straight, and heading in the direction of ills.
Yes, your shores once a sanctuary, but now you’ve opened the door to your foe,
And why in time, once the deceptive window dressing’s removed, more blood will flow.

By Lance Landall

"For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men..." (Mark 7:8, KJV).

"We Christians may not do as Americans something that we must not do as Christians. As we listen to and debate arguments about going to war, note how often our Christian identity is subordinated to our American identity. We have been so formed by the collusion of the church with America that we find it difficult to even distinguish between Christian and national identity, and harder to subordinate our national identity to our identity in Christ."

20.  You're Being Rebuked, America

I’ve no doubt you’re being rebuked, America, you who say, “In God we trust,”
Yet, how you’ve erred, morals, principles and standards engulfed in liberal dust.
Certain church leaders calling for reunification, astray as can be,
Your protestant heritage being what once made you that great land of the free.

But now, that eagle of yours having become a vulture, its eyes on the world,
Yes, world domination by stealth, having turned your back on what once you upheld.
Your global police everywhere, you making billions out of weaponry,
Supplying whoever it suits you to, but in the end, at the helm you’ll be.

God not happy, Hollywood a cesspool of violence and immorality,
Cities and towns awash with homelessness, crime, racism, even bigotry.
Your people blind with an unhealthy patriotism, a mobocracy,
Your pride misplaced given ghosts of savagery, apartheid and slavery.

Yes, you’ve gone from protector to bully, but still dressed in your self-righteous suits,
Those same religious leaders having got your President’s ear, thus in cahoots.
Church and State in the making, the resemblance of a past Church and State in sight,
Warnings of false prophets, teachers, and lying signs and wonders starting to bite.

Yes, it’s only a matter of time, liberties having been eroded, and
America having the clout and influence, such seen in every land.
Hence those embargoes, other countries forced into line, pressured to aid wrong wars,
The whole world at risk now, and many starting to implement similar laws.

Yes, there’s a picture coming together, and it’s not a nice one, I’m afraid,
It having all the sad hallmarks of heinous traps that in the past were laid.
But who’s awake, and what can one do if it’s biblically predicted, say
(As many believe), and having seen how America has gone so astray.

You’re being rebuked, America, and others who’re erring too, just like you,
All because of what they’ve exchanged and forsaken, and hence why worse is in view.
No, God hardly blessing such despite all the love and peace rhetoric, the sham,
Because most people are anything but ready to face the biblical “Lamb.”

Under ancient Israel’s apostasy, all its people suffered, and so
Such is the case today with America, and any other land in tow.
Cause and effect, it’s called, but America should know better than most of us
Given that “In God we trust,” and yet, your actions hardly mirroring Jesus.

Even where there was repentance, punishment wasn’t always halted, and so
Ancient Israel learning they shouldn’t have gone there in the first place, and so
America too, it all too late, your once blessed country tracking errantly,
Your watchman on the wall asleep, duped or impersonated, you your own worst enemy.

And God’s restraining hand being withdrawn more quickly now, thus more woes ahead,
You hardly having gained the respect of your foes, hypocrisy blushing red.
You dictating to others when you haven’t got your own house in order, and
Looking like a lamb that’s becoming a dragon, from where I and others stand.

By Lance Landall

21.  Soon We'll See Who's Right

When Church and State are wed — Hello, America — we’ll once again see bloodshed,
And why the Bible warns of such, prophesies such, and that time’s just ahead.
Those who forget the past so bound to repeat it — “But things are different now,”
Well, so some like to think, lambs to the slaughter, the fox in the henhouse, and pow!

Sharp eyes seeing it coming, just like the Bible predicts, and why soon we’ll see
Protestants and Catholics leading the charge together, so disastrously.
’Cause then, just like we’re told, legislation following in their footsteps, and why
Persecution will arrive again, and liberty out the window will fly.

22.  Trump's Folly

Sorry, Mister Trump, but climate change is for real, and an apocalyptic end,
Though a renewed Earth free of ills awaits those who repent and all their bad ways mend.
So who’s been convincing you otherwise? Errant evangelicals, false prophets?
’Cause Scripture’s very clear — hence its signs of the times — so best put sense before profits.

Yes, mind the religious who’re after power in order to achieve wrong beliefs,
God not setting up His kingdom on His return, but rescuing from Earth’s griefs.
A renewed Earth coming later, His coming toppling everything that’s man-made,
Hence those mansions in Heaven He’s preparing for those who His will would’ve obeyed.

Hence His warnings too, true prophets not glossing things over, or telling what’s a lie,
Because God’s wanting us to take very serious all that’s been going awry.
All these calamities and so forth but a wake up call, not that He’s zapping us,
But is slowly removing His restraining hand, our only hope found in Jesus.

Thus your denial of climate change but the response of a scoffer, sad to say,
Or someone who’s been wrongly fed; and perhaps you’re thinking you’re God’s man of the day.
Well, you wouldn’t be the first to wrongly think so, and meantime this Earth needs our care,
’Cause it's our very nest, still God’s creation, so some blame you could be facing here.

All why God’s saving call and the ills of climate change should be activating us,
As our suffering could be greater, and many having reason to fear Jesus.
Like yourself, Mister Trump, if you’re erring badly here, ’cause some things are clear to see,
Like climate change, not to mention those other things that are repeating history.

Why would someone want to drain a swamp only to fill it with more toxic waste,
A boastful, dictatorial, lamb becoming a dragon like smell and taste?
Outside of that theocracy that once was, God accepts no Church and State wedding,
So mind, Mister Trump, because politics, religion shouldn’t be bedding.

I thinking of that photo shoot; a bible in your hand, a church behind you,
Such reminding me of a persecuting Church and State power that once was too.
Hence why many fled to America, Mister Trump, so tell me, what’s going on,
Or won’t we know ’till the chance to stop history repeating itself has gone?

“The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens
will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare”
(2 Peter 3:9,10, NIV).

"Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world..." (John 18:36, KJV).

Regarding The One World Government

“For when they shall say, peace and security: then shall sudden destruction come upon them, as the pains
upon her that is with child, and they shall not escape.” (1Thess 5:3, Douay-Rheims Version).

Why I believe the coming New World Order (one world government) is a very bad thing for humanity:

The NWO is incompatible with the notion of limited government, and is too much power in the hands of too few.

Given that no human or system can be trusted with the death penalty given how flawed both humans and systems are, how could such be trusted with total control of our world?

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

There is no option of "voting with your feet" under a one world government. People will not be able to question such once it's in place. Such will be too big and powerful to oppose, too big to turn around once in place.

The NWO will force all to go along with it — won't abide dissenters. Such is a clear attack on one's say and freedom.

Such creates the potential for a master stroke — that being, the total lock-stock-and-barrel control of all.

No matter how benign or hopeful a one world government may look, bear in mind what it could turn into later down the track. Something irreversible? A risk that is far too great to take. Imagine the potential for evil. Such a one world government will place all countries in a position where they could easily be manipulated, pressured and forced to conform to a certain line or law, be such via embargoes or other.

A NWO can't change hearts which is where the real problem lies within humanity.

Ask yourself, why is such coming on the heels of less freedom, loss of certain liberties, a dampening of free speech, greater restrictions, and more government control? Surely that should ring alarm bells.

Such can play into the hands of those with a behind the scenes agenda, those operating behind the face that we see. There are those (some of note) who are saying that certain ones who are calling for such are the very ones causing the problems, that certain problems are deliberately being created and specifically crafted to bring about restrictive legislation and a desire for the so-called security of a NWO — a slow progression that has taken place over a long period of time to avoid revolution.

A new world order can set the stage for a return to Church and State. Are we seeing certain overtures being made to certain religious personages? Or the other way round? The Christian Bible predicts that a worldwide religious-political persecuting power will be ruling the earth just prior to Christ’s return, one that forces all to worship it, one that emulates a past persecuting power (Revelation 13:11-18).

And there you would have the biggest cult ever, and the death penalty playing into its hands.

The Christian Bible when speaking of the time just prior to Christ's return, and the global government, has this to say:

"He [the coming global government] was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast [a past persecuting power], that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed [here it's referring to dissenters, those who won't bow to certain demands]" (Rev 13:15, NKJV).

"At the end of a century that has seen the evils of communism, Nazism and other modern tyrannies, the impulse to centralize power remains amazingly persistent."
Joseph Sobran (1946-2010)

"A one world government-cum-New World Order can only but sneer at the Statute of Liberty which
would be holed as surely as the Titanic."
The Author

23. Long In The Planning

It’s not some made up story, but a fact, that behind the scenes there’re those who’re plotting to control humanity,
And who’ll no doubt succeed due to most thinking that such a scenario is just a conspiracy theory.
Well, such certainly isn’t a conspiracy theory, for there is evidence clearly showing otherwise,
And remember: That those who evilly plot and scheme, such hardly advertise, but rather, cleverly disguise.

Yes, such is packaged to attract and thereby fool, which ignorance aids and abets, and that disbelief we see,
For which there’s no excuse given the information that can be found, and despite the media piracy.
That is, the manipulation of any form of media by those who get control of such in some way,
In order to ridicule those who’re telling the truth
and in truth’s place, nothing but cruel lies and half truths convey.

There has always been those who wished to control the world, and it’s no different today, hence that attempt being made,
And which has been long in the planning, and which now is dressed in rather pleasing rhetoric in order to persuade.
And persuade it no doubt will given we don’t seem to learn from history, lost in pleasures and naivety,
Unable to see that some New World Order (pursued by all or a few) is the craziest absurdity.

Yes, best each nation do its own thing — rightly and fairly, that is — and not buy into some global piracy,
That is, some cleverly disguised world power that’ll force its dictates on all eventually, and wickedly.
No, we’d never be able to vote with our feet, for such centralised control would soon end such, which is why we
Should oppose any One World Government — any agency, people, or course that desires that such a thing be.

By Lance Landall

24. Nothing Will Prevent It From Happening

According to John the Revelator, via the Bible’s book of Revelation,
There’ll soon be a New World Order, global power controlling every nation.
And so, nothing will prevent it from happening, no voices, no actions, and thus
Our only hope of true freedom, liberty and real joy being found in Jesus.

The Bible says that this coming power will work amazing signs and wonders, and
Fool most of humanity via such, and just as Christ’s enemy (Satan) has planned.
So yes, speak out do, because it’s a persecuting power demanding worship
(Or else) — well, eventually, that is — and why all will soon feel its iron grip.

I wish it wasn’t so, but it’s been predicted, and much evidence can be found,
It no conspiracy theory, and the Bible’s pages well and truly truth bound.
It’s accuracy proven, its signs of the times happening right before our eyes,
Yet, because of unbelief, most will fall for the lies, and thus be caught by surprise.

And so, it hardly a smooth road ahead, and hence some strange things that are going on,
Things that just don’t add up (evil agents at work who desire liberty gone).
Total control the agenda, and the devil the mastermind behind it all,
Wanting Earth for himself, having opposed God’s authority ever since his fall.

It’s just been a time thing, God having to wait till it comes to fruition, and then
He on His way soon after it’s begun, but nobody knowing exactly when.
And thus believers in Christ told to endure until His wrath ends that wicked reign;
His command to love just like Him, and never cause harm to anyone, more than plain.

By Lance Landall

See next article.

This article is designed to simplify (from the biblical perspective) the article above and
what Foes Of Humanity is all about.

Let Me Make It Very Simple

God has always existed (something that’s hard for fallen, mortal humans to fully grasp).

Heaven is God's headquarters from where He rules and runs the universe (this world and the other worlds that He has created that aren’t fallen like our one).

One of His subjects, Lucifer, a very privileged angel (head of all the other angels), became jealous of Him, wanting to be equal with Him, and such ending in open rebellion (all why Lucifer is now referred to as Satan, the devil, the serpent or roaring lion).

Satan and a third of Heaven's angels who were duped by him, and who thus sided with him, were removed from Heaven.

Satan thus being the origin of sin, evil, suffering, cruelty, oppression, tyranny and wicked fellow angels — spirit beings — who're responsible for the occult and the likes of certain magic, mysterious apparitions, and psychic mediums through which they often work and continue to fool (the Bible telling us that the dead no nothing).

Ever since Satan's removal from Heaven, he has not only sought to make God look really bad, and to undermine the truth of His Word (the Christian Bible), particularly via Darwin’s theory of evolution, but has also sought our personal downfall (even destruction), and total control over planet Earth and humanity.

Hence Adam and Eve’s fall.
From this moment on, sin entered this planet like an infectious disease, not only corrupting humans but causing the gradual decaying of our world.
Hence why there are two forces at work in our world now, good (God, love) and evil (Satan, hate).

As far as total control over planet Earth and humanity goes, and despite trying via previous powers that sought world domination (including a Church and State one, all biblically predicted), Satan hasn’t succeeded yet, but the Christian Bible warns that he soon will via a coming global persecuting power that will deceive most via its clever spiel, cunning, signs and wonders. A power that eventually demands worship. One that we’re told is a copy of that previous Church and State power (that was wounded but revives, Rev 13:3) and that eventually fulfills what that past power sought to do. And this why God will never support any attempt to install such a government, and why His Word speaks ill of it.

"We must move as quickly as possible to a one-world government; a one-world religion; under a one-world leader."
Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations

Because God has given us the freedom and liberty to choose between Him and Satan, good and evil, the right path or wrong path (God not wanting robots), He has to wait until that time when Satan will succeed in gaining total control of Earth.

This way the inhabitants of Earth, Heaven, and other created worlds will finally see Satan’s true heart and long term intentions — in other words, where such a heart and rebellion leads to. And this way there will never be another murmur against God (who thinks in terms of eternity), Satan’s accusations having been proven groundless, and thus no one will want to follow in the likes of Satan’s selfish, destructive footsteps again (given that God hasn’t made us robots, and that nor will we become such).

Meantime, God aches for an end to it all and promises that one day it will end.

He being the very same God who gave us a way out via Calvary (the setting up of His rescue mission), and the same God who secured the permanency of our race via a boat [ark] when He could’ve destroyed everyone via the global flood, or let them destroy themselves, which they would’ve given that there was only one family still living righteously, and thus they the occupants of that boat.

The Bible tells us that just prior to Christ’s return (when He comes to get the repentant), most humans will have got to that same sad state that existed in Noah’s time and that brought about the global flood.
That cataclysmic disruption to our planet has resulted in massive scars like the Grand Canyon, fish fossils at the top of mountain ranges, volcanoes, fault lines and consequent earthquakes.
The Bible also tells us that just prior to Christ’s return (and due to planet Earth’s decay and so on) there will be an increase in seismic activity, pestilences, pandemics and calamities. These, it says, are the beginning of sorrows.

God has always had our best intentions at heart because He’s the God of love and truth. A God that Satan has always sought to misrepresent given that he has always been jealous of the glory and honour that God alone is due. And given that Satan is no doubt angry over his loss of Heaven and his fate to come, and why he'll take as many with him as he can, and, by the way, why he's behind all the mayhem and trickery, one way or another, and often in order to bring about his End-time plans.

If God wasn’t slowly removing His restraining hand (man’s cup of iniquity full), many wouldn’t awaken from their folly and peril, realise what’s going on, and thus would be lost for all eternity.

"Then I [the apostle John] saw another beast [power] coming out of the earth [a new land]. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon [changes character]. He exercised all the authority of the first beast [a past persecuting power] on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast [fulfills the past
power's historic evil intentions], whose wound had been healed [it reviving from its previous historic fall]"
(Rev 13:11,12, NIV).

"He [the coming global government] was granted power to give breath to the image [copy] of the beast [the first beast], that the image [copy] of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image [copy] of the beast to be killed [here it's referring to dissenters, those who won't bow to certain demands]" (Rev 13:15, NKJV).

“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image [copy], and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God…’ ”
(Rev 14:9,10, NKJV).
