Korah, Then and Now

The defiant divide in America continues to deepen and harden.  The further President Trump moves toward implementing his agenda the more entrenched the war against him becomes.  This war is being led on three fronts:

  1. The political establishment in DC
  2. The mainstream, leftist ‘news’ media: ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC et al
  3. The entertainment cult leaders of movies and music

This undeclared civil war forms a striking parallel with the rebellion Moses faced in the wilderness soon after having left Egypt.  These rebels were intransigent in their resentful opposition to Moses’ leadership.  They proclaimed a humanist doctrine that everyone was as righteous and suited for any role as anyone else, no matter who they were, and that Moses was not entitled to exercise rule over them.  Sound familiar?  It goes even deeper.

Korah’s rebels were led by three main factions represented by  Korah, Dathan and Abiram.  All these were of the tribe of Levi, the tribe set aside for the service of the Temple, the very centre of society .  That service has three primary functions:

  1. The priest’s office.  These are the ones who officiated over the people and mediated between God and the nation, performing the highly visible rituals in Temple service.  In our secular society, this is analogous to the political class of DC.
  2. The scribe’s office.  These record keepers worked under the priests preparing decrees issued by the priesthood, recording and copying official documents.  Today we look to the mass media to create and report the record of government activity.
  3. The singer’s office.  This group functioned in the services to provide the beauty of song to the glorification of God.  Our culture is dominated by the worship of singers and actors who direct all the glory and attention to themselves, exerting enormous influence over an entranced populace that has surrendered all critical and logical thought to this class of vacuous, professional fakers.

At Trump’s inauguration we witnessed yet another startling parallel to the Korah insurrection when sixty-seven elected democrats refused to attend the event.  Their reasons all centred on their various claims that Trump’s election is illegitimate in their eyes and their refusal to recognize a leader they openly despise.  Insisting upon showing their contempt for President Trump, the democratic process and the will of the people, they said, “We will not come up!”  Compare that to the same event in Num 16 when Moses appealed to the rebel leaders to meet with him.

Num 16:12-14:
Then Moses sent a summons to Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab; but they said,
“We will not come up.”
Is it not enough that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey to have us die in the wilderness, but you would also lord it over us? “Indeed, you have not brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Would you put out the eyes of these men?
We will not come up!

This was and is an extremely serious situation.  There was no reasoning with a people who were completely consumed by their unjustified hatred of their legitimate ruler.  A house divided against itself cannot stand.  For the good of the nation this situation could not be allowed to continue then, and it will not be allowed to continue now.  In order to save the nation from its own cannibalism the rebels had to be decisively removed.

Reading on in this chapter we see that God made a clear distinction between the people of peace and those of hate.  Those who aligned with the rebels were isolated and then swallowed up by the earth in a moment, leaving the rest of the nation to come together in peaceful unity.  Sadly, America is now poised at the edge of just such a traumatic purge. The rebellion we’re seeing fill the streets, fomented by the three levers of control over the public mind and heart, will have a sudden and irrevocable end.

Pro 29:1
He who is often rebuked, and hardens his neck,

Will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

Those who are now gnashing their teeth in public displays of rabid rage against President Trump are signing their own death warrants.  And this death will not be by the hand of man where money and power might deliver.  No, when the Bear rips out these three ribs it will permanently remove the hardened rebel camps and free the rest of Ephraim/America to unite under the banner of Jesus Christ.  There is still time for those who align with a move toward peace and justice and truth to separate themselves from these centres of incorrigible rebellion, NYC, DC and LA, and relocate far enough inland to escape the nuclear holocaust that will obliterate these Korahites in a moment.

Rev 18:4:
I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues”

How the Eagle Stole Christmas

In the pre-dawn hours of Christmas morning 2016, a sudden disaster pierced deeply into the heart of the Bear.  A beloved symbol of national pride, renowned the world over as ambassadors of high Russian culture, met a heart-wrenching end in the waters just off Sochi.  Sixty-four members of the celebrated Alexandrov Ensemble, including five leading soloists,  perished in the Black Sea as the military Tu-154 carrying them to a planned New Year’s concert in Syria went down in a suspicious crash right after take-off.

The scope of this tragic loss may escape the cult followers of what passes for culture in the mass-marketed west, and certainly the western media has paid scant attention, but the loss to both the Russian state and its people terminally overshadowed Christmas celebrations, turning it into an official national day of mourning.  Across the nation outdoor Christmas festivities were cancelled, holiday TV programming was shelved and the hearts of Russians everywhere were turned from Christmas cheer to very personal shock, grief and disbelief.  Men of honour, known and loved by all, were taken from both their immediate families and their national family in a cruel irony as they set out on a mission of joy and peace.  Along with them, all crew members, a doctor and numerous journalists were also lost.

While the true nature of this incident has not yet come to public light, all thinking people should reflect on the relentless succession of provocations that the Eagle has been meting out to the Bear as it rides the White Horse of regime change and its war on terror in the name of its deathbed democracy.  From fomenting rebellion in Georgia, manipulating world oil markets to cripple the Russian economy, destabilizing Ukraine and leveraging that carnage into even larger scale anti-Russian sanctions, sponsoring terror and treachery in Syria to spearheading the ostracism of Russian Olympic athletes and suspicious assassinations of Russian diplomats, there is no front on which the Bear has not suffered covert acts of aggression.  The arrogance has ratcheted up recently as the clear will of the American people is rejected by the drunkards of Ephraim [Isa 28:1-3] and blamed on Russia with statements like, “We’re sending a message.  We have the capacity to do it.” “Our goal continues to be to send a clear message to Russia or others not to do this to us because we can do stuff to you.”  “We need to take action. And we will — at the time and place of our choosing.”  “He’ll [Putin] know it. It will be at the time of our choosing — and under the circumstances that have the greatest impact.”  Will the public know it?  “Hope not.”, was the response in mid Oct.

In 1991 the former Soviet Union dissolved as Russia suffered the humiliating loss of the cubs of its former satellite states when it formally lost the cold war on Dec 25, the last day the USSR’s flag flew.  Since then the Eagle has been gathering them into its nest while advancing on the Bear itself.  The current Russian leadership has not forgotten those cubs, but even if the sting of those losses has been softened by a new openness and a transition from an atheist state to one now embracing its former Christian values, one that should be a natural ally of the west, this fresh, painfully intimate loss, 25 years later to the day, surely rips open those wounds and adds new, bitter ones.  These new cubs are lost not only by the state but by every Russian who loved and honoured these men and their proud heritage of excellence that transcended the Soviet era, for 90 years shining as ambassadors of a Russian spirit that withstood and overcame many great evils.  This wound has pierced to the heart of the nation and it will it not be soon healed.  At an all-too-near point, with cunning wisdom and the savage rage of a bear bereft of her cubs, the cruel provocations will be answered, as it is written:

Hos 13:8   I will meet them like a bear deprived of her cubs;
I will tear open their rib cage, and there I will devour them like a lion.
