Reading Revelation 20:4 reveals that Antichrist will genocide Christians by beheading them. While many know this, so few examine how the world will get to this point. Will such massive beheading only occur on Muslim soil who are accustomed to beheading? While Islam prescribes beheading, yes, but it is Turkey’s “populist” movement that is reviving Islam. But what about the growing European populism? Is it immune from heading towards that direction where you will witness beheadings, just as we have seen in Syria and in Iraq? In Europe the beheadings will dwarf anything that you have seen in the Middle East.
Enter a shocker. Christians will be beheaded in east (the Muslim world) and west (Europe).
Populism is sweeping throughout the world. I will explain it from A, how it deceives, to Z, how it will ultimately remove all the power pegs stopping Antichrist’s rise to power and how it will create the perfect conditions, where when Christians are beheaded, even you, many of my readers, are very likely not to shed a tear.
You think its impossible to transform you into a callous lawless little tyrant? Think again.
Christ mandated that for one to be Christian they need to be “as wise as serpents”.
Perhaps an example from man’s best friend might help simplify what I mean by ‘populism’. I need to cover “A” (the pudding) before I get to “Z” (the meat).
To rob a home guarded by a fierce watchdog, Myth Busters concluded that throwing it a steak will keep it occupied. This gives the thief just the time he needs to enter. The trick will work, unless of course, the dog is professionally trained to ignore steaks during a break-in.
But how many dogs are trained to ignore the steak? Answer: very very few.
Think of populism in the same way. The populist agenda (the thieves) understand that the only way to unmask them is by training all the puppies “the people”. This is impossible to do.
What populism says is this: corrupt elitists run the nation and its time for the people to take control.
Truth is, throughout history, and in every form of government, there you will always find a handful of thieves standing in the upper balcony, while we will always find the rest “the people” sit in the square below with little room to breath.
Populism and its agenda knows that only trained watchdogs can spot the bait. But these are so few. All other puppies bite the bait of the propagandist, hook, line and sinker, believing the populist propagandist. So all of the sudden “the people” begin to believe that they are all trained purebred K9 pedigree. With populism, every mutt believes that they are all worthy to guard, bark and even point who is and who is not an intruder and bite at will.
But its time Christians become trained watchdogs by understanding three rules:
RULE #1: POPULISM IS NOT ABOUT “THE PEOPLE”
The first key in this lesson is this; populist planners realize one hurdle for Christians to sniff their agenda; being conservative, the most difficult time to expose populism to other conservatives is during the time its most popular: now.
Telling the excited masses, that populism is simply a bait, will only gain you shouts of “hang him high on the gallows in social media square”.
After the thief enters, populist organizers realize there is another hurdle for the trained watchdog; a coward is mute during a tyranny in progress, and he only exposes it after it is defeated, so that his heroic-speech is recognized by his peers.
So even after the thief enters, these promoters realize that few will speak out. Who after all wants to be labeled as “against the people” who after all wants to be viewed as against “stopping the Islamization of the West”?
But I too am “for the people,” and I too, want to “stop the Islamization of the West”.
But I am also against populism’s hijacking of these noble causes.
Populist politicians will use everything. Nothing goes to waste. They will use misery, genocide, even noble and great causes, as the steak for the people. They gulp up smaller movements, even partner with opposite views than their own, so long they agree on the main slogans. They will partner with Christians, pagans, socialists, conservatives … whomever … it does not matter. In their worldview the end always justifies the means.
But here, we will remove the ‘bullshitism’ and undress populism’s discursive versatility and behavioral chameleonism and only then, when we parade it in the nude, then it becomes obvious, that it is nothing more than a set of contradictions; its “anti-elitism” only creates new elites who will act as if they alone are “the people”.
With populism, its the new elitists sitting in the upper balcony who become “the people”.
For example, populist Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declaring at a party congress in defiance of his numerous domestic critics said, “We are the people. Who are you?”
Where his secular Turkish opponents not “the people”?
So in reality, populism has nothing to do with ‘people’ and all to do with representing a different set of values.
And it doesn’t matter if these new values appear conservative-right, left, or a mishmash of both, Islamist or Fascist, these new values then become superior to the current values.
Populism is “King people” which has always been proved to be the worst form of governing. It always contradicts what it claims and is never what it says it is.
Throughout history, old and current, and in every populist experiment, it is pride and not race (as National Socialist believe) or class (as Marxists believe) that is elevated. Real wages always ended up lower than they were at the beginning. While populism claims to want to remove ‘too much politics’, its history brought mass politics. Even the populists crusade against corruption (draining the swamp), often engenders more corruption.
Keep in mind that Marxist revolution is based on class, while National Socialism is based on race. So the far left in Europe is Marxists, which is classist, while the far right are national socialist racists.
While some argue that Latin America ended its populism, reality is what ended is the “super populism” of Venezuela and Ms Fernández’s Argentina, while the continent simply returned back to its “original populism” that has characterised much of Latin America’s recent history.
However it is defined, from Turkey, Austria, Germany, France, Japan and the United States, to Poland, the Philippines, and Peru, the so-called neo-conservative populists are on the rise, while the chaos in Venezuela and Mexico is experiencing violence and mob lynching by “the people” on the streets.
The other key that populist leadership knows, is that the masses rarely study history. Populism caused the German Peasants War. It resulted from the Protestant Reformation, which ended up with massacres and civil unrest when the urban population wanted the removal of the “elites”.
Populism also caused the “English Revolution,” (English Civil Wars and Commonwealth 1640–1660) another war, which ended up with a lack of significant social change for the people, followed by a ten-year period of “bourgeois republican” government called the “Commonwealth” (the new elites).
It ended up with the old ruling class who came back with new ideas and new outlooks, which were attuned to economic growth and expansion and facilitated in the long run the development of a fully capitalist economy.
But all this crept into the French Revolution (the bloodiest in Europe) of 1789. It was a struggle for political, economic and religious power, waged by the middle class, the bourgeoisie, which grew in wealth and strength as capitalism developed.
In reality it was not led by “the people” but by the wealthy intellectuals who were the cause for all this manifestation of supposed populist sentiment against the elitist excesses (the swamp).
So it wasn’t really about “the people” but an agenda to remove and replace the Church.
These new elitists, then used nationalism by positing the people as a “mystical unity” and the driving force of history, in which the divinity finds its purpose, that the French since they were a “special people” because of their equality, liberty, and fraternity; this pride-building made the French believe that they can never be wrong. It caused a massive shift of power from the Roman Catholic Church to the state were populists complained that the church owned 10% of the land.
We all know how the guillotine stood as the principal symbol of the Terror in the French Revolution.
RULE #2: POPULISM IS ABOUT REMOVING THE OBSTACLES TO USHER ANTICHRIST
But it is this type, the ideological populism, that is most concerning. That is what is currently rising in Europe and Turkey. Prophecy reveals:
“…and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands …” (Revelation 20:4)
It is obvious that we are seeing markings, neopagan tattoos on arms these days spreading throughout Europe.
But there is another key to unlocking what is happening. With the European racist identitarian strand of populism, the end result will not be patriotism, but racial divisiveness, where what emerges is the transformation of the populist planners (not the people) to become this new ‘elite’.
But one thing needs to be taken into consideration as to how we will get to ‘beheading’.
One of the differences between tyranny and liberty is the treatment of minorities. Wth all these Identitarian movements focus on race, this will remove the sense of charity and compassion towards all other races, be they Egyptian Copts, Armenians, Assyrian Christians, Jews …
So by abandoning the idea that the greatness of a nation can easily be measured by its treatment of minorities, Christians and Jews living as minority, when massacred, the populist will not shed a tear.
While populism festers in Europe, and to a lesser degree in the U.S., where it will end up creating a Nazistic fifth column within the structure of U.S. society.
And it is not about combating Muslim immigration as the mutts are told. It is about feeding pride to whomever believes they are purebred German shepherds, to make believe, they deserve the steak more than all the other breeds be they Muslim, Jew or foreigner Christians.
The current strand of European populism is really about pure unadulterated racism. This is especially true when their moderate apologists say that their movement is “not about racism”. Racism in fact, is the signature of the nationalism assumed by the National Front from France, the North League in Italy, the Flemish Block and recently the New Flemish Alliance in Belgium, SVP in Switzerland, the Austrian FPÖ, and the Dutch PVV.
These propose a type of nostalgia for a mythical world of racial and cultural homogeneity.
And to create the perfect alibi for Germany to usher this sad course of events, it introduced mass immigration of Muslim refugees. This was another key element to cement their populist cause. The trained smart dogs know that populism in Europe is not about Muslim immigration as claimed, but the ushering in of fascism as a value to replace the current values by using the excuse “Muslim immigration”.
For example, the Flemish Block proclaims the principle “eigen volk eerst” (the indigenous must be the first), which leads to a complete separation from Belgium – Flanders of the Flemish, Wallonia of the Walloons (the Francophones), Europe of the Europeans (whites).
This is not about combating Muslim immigration. Its about proclaiming that there is Jew, and then there is Gentile.
This is key to understand the shift and the change of theology that is permeating and accepting the paganistic form.
While the trend of right-wing populist parties is to denounce Islam as the evil “other,” they also seek to explore variation among populist discourses and strategies concerning religion.
The populists in Europe oppose traditional faiths and church leaders. And just as the Nazis did, there were neopagans celebrating the strength of pre-Christian Europe, prominent neopagans alongside conservative Catholics were involved in the founding of the French Front National.
And in Austria, the FPÖ had a strong anti-clerical component. The Lega Nord in Italy even promoted neo-pagan rituals. In the Netherlands the Lijst Pim Fortuyn (LPF; Pim Fortuyn List) and the PVV gave zero precedence to Christian values over libertarian views on ethical, economic, and social issues.
While church leaders are said to be considered part of society, these conflict with the church and only use Christian symbols for show.
The Italian Lega Nord cultural base is neo-pagan, made of Celtic crosses and veneration of the god Odin in which they administer every year the purification rites.
Smart dogs need to pay attention, populists speak of identity while true churches speak of faith.
While European populism calls to stop “the Islamization of Europe” by banning headscarves and the construction of mosques and campaigns to prohibit circumcision and halal food in Norway, the victim in the end will be two groups: Jews and Christians.
Most puppies don’t think. They simply chomp at the steak. Jews also have circumcision and ritual slaughter of animals which is also being challenged in Norway and Germany.
And with the new racial identity, the Jews and foreign immigrant Christians into Europe are also made to feel like outsiders.
Moreover, if a mosque is a worship center, the church where communion is observed, is also a worship center. Whatever they will inflict on a mosque they will also inflict on a church.
In Europe, there is pagan creeds mixed with racism and ethnocentric ideas where neo-Pagan “völkisch” nationalists and Catholic nationalists unite.
So how could the idea of a European federation of ethnic, unite with Catholics who should cling to the concept of the multi-ethnic Nation-State? This should not be the case, unless, Catholics are abandoning key theological concepts.
Christ marked the ends of days as an era of deception where false prophets will “deceive (if possible) even the elect” (Matthew 24:24). And so who has deceived these masses to abandon true theology? Is it exclusively the Muslim who is doing this?
Here we have western (not Muslim) pagan movements, oriented towards the right, influenced by anarchism, ecology and alternative thinking uniting with identitarian, anti-egalitarian who are to fight against the egalitarian and universalist ideas of Christianity described as “Jewish” and “eastern” while Kek and the Sun gods imported from Egypt (eastern) is okay.
Today we have Identity Churches or the World Church of the Creator, which were created in the United States and later became popular among the European neo-Nazis, including the skinheads. But it is also the core of the ideology of the so-called “New Right”, a movement which has its roots in the French think-tank, GRECE (Groupement de Recherches et d’Etudes pour la Civilisation Européenne), launched in 1968, by Alain de Benoist. GRECE distinguishes itself from other traditionalist conservative organizations in displaying specific interest for Germanic and Nordic cultures, rejection of Christianity and monotheism, and advocating neopaganism.
This later spread across Western Europe.
Therefore, European Populism will be the major causer of persecution. Similar to Russian populism, which was anti-czarist-elites and industrialization in the 1860s only became the pre-Marxist socialists which brought in communism. This too killed millions of Christians.
Similarly was the Armenian Genocide, were the populist eugenists “Young Turks,” just like in Nazi Germany massacred millions of Christians.
Then we had National Socialist populism, which also interacted with and facilitated fascism in interwar Germany. And this is exactly what is reoccurring again. Distressed middle–class populists, during the pre-Nazi Weimar period, mobilized their anger at government and big business using demagoguery, scapegoating, and conspiracism.
Just like today, they sounded ‘right’ for the conservative, since Nazis expressed anti-Marxist (class) mobilization. National Socialists (race based) cast themselves as representatives of the commonwealth of the “betrayed and neglected German public” celebrating the populist ideal of the people’s community.
We all know too well the holocausts of Nazi Germany where millions of Catholic Polish and Jews were liquidated.
DONALD TRUMP: THE BOOST TO GLOBAL POPULISM
But now we have U.S. populists, which leads us to Donald Trump. It would be a misconception to brand Trump as a populist Alt-Righter. He did not mind gaining their support, true, but while Trump definitely used populist jargon to win, Trump’s actions revealed he was not this purebred populist. He in fact, somewhat upset this group by simply combining the same old ‘republican guards’, while appointing one of their Alt-Right idols; Steve Bannon of Breitbart.
Trump did this to simply appease the worshipers of Pepe the frog to gain their votes just as he appeased the gays and the Hindus.
However, the populist jargon Trump used caused massive confidence buildup throughout Europe, Russia, Turkey and the U.S., boosting the populist cause dramatically to a point of no return, where the world will not be the same until Kingdom come.
In reality, this is Trump’s first accomplished legacy. He used populism to win because this was the trend globally.
All this boosted the most concerning strand, European populism, which is coming across as anti-immigration and anti-elite.
RULE #3: IT IS ABOUT REMOVING THE PEGS GOD INSTALLED THAT HAS PREVENTED THE RISE OF ANTICHRIST
But regardless how populism is defined, the current Latin American strand of populism as left, or western populism as conservative Idenitarian right, or Russian pre-communist populism as pre-Marxism, or Turkish populism as neo-Ottoman; reality is that populism is sweeping the globe and is simply another form for revolution pitting the people against the political establishment to enforce a set of values over the current set of values established by Christians.
This is true no matter where you look. Even in Turkey’s neo-Ottoman movement, this is what Erdogan’s populism was all about.
After the west defeated the Ottomans, Christendom established The Sykes–Picot Agreement (the Asia Minor Agreement) in 1916, between Great Britain and France to which the Russian Empire assented to break down the Ottoman Empire during World War I, into spheres of influence and control of Muslim Southwestern Asia, and later established a Christian set of values to govern the defeated Muslim world.
After it was all done, from Egypt to Turkey, western civilization thrived with laws and arts that reflected Christian values while Islam was suppressed and the Muslim Brotherhood were viewed as outdated polygamists.
And what we see today in the latest wave of populism, in both east and west, is the replacement of current Christian values.
With Turkey, its to advance Islamic supermacy over western style values that honor human rights. With Europe its about initially advancing a moderate form of neo-fascism, neo-nazism and neopaganism, in hope to gain power first, and then the unrest that follows against Jews and Christians should be most concerning. With Latin America, it was about democratic socialism which is on its way out and the old populism simply got back in.
In reality, populism was no steak, but a hydrogen bomb, detonated by suicide bombers who are simply no-body groups and arm-chair revolutionaries extending their reaches into the hauls of power.
The shockwave will soon be re-gutting several political systems and now the whole world, where the populist radioactive dust and ash, will be carried by the wind of social media (in the next few years) into the four corners of the globe.
Therefore, trained elitist dogs understand populism by what it is, while the untrained mutts believe they are pedigree, when they are not, these understand populism by what it is not, and is why these view us as ‘enemy’ and use vulgar terms that we should be fed to the lions in the arena.
In Europe, the most concerning strand is the ethnocratic liberalism embracing the liberal system of political and economic competition, but considers, at the same time, only the members of an ethnic group as being full members of society.
Whether its American, Russian, Turkish or European populists, all these use political hypnotism. They talk of “the people” converting them by capitalizing on their fears, while promising them a utopia they made up from the figments of their own imaginations. They tell the masses that they will govern in the name of “the people”. Reality is that when populists win, the promoters will only make more ‘puppets’ of the very elite state power that the people complained so much about.
And we see this today in all the rhetoric, whether Russia, Turkey, Europe or the U.S., its a shift towards a simplistic and even a vulgar form of political populism, where the solutions demanded for problems are naive.
For example, if we have a problem with the NATO nation of lets say Turkey, the western populist will cry out “dissolve NATO” or they will shout “throw Turkey out of NATO”.
And it all sounds good for the untrained patriot American puppy.
But these give out simplistic solutions without considering that NATO was formed to grip nations like Turkey, to be under western control. A good dog trainer will know that when NATO was being formed, the participation of the United States was thought necessary both to counter the military power of the USSR and to prevent the revival of nationalist militarism.
NATO in other words, was formed to prevent past tyrannies. This is also just as true for the E.U which grips Germany under the control of other European states, lest Germany again goes out of hand as it did during Nazism.
Take out these power pegs established by Christendom and what you have is the lifting of the very powers that have held these old wounded beasts (the Ottomans, Nazis, Fascists, Imperial Japan) and kept them at bay.
That is why its crucial to understand the big picture. Their ambition is not only against the Jew (Jerusalem), but also Rome.
The Ottomans have failed to conquer the Vatican and abolish “the covenant of the sanctuary” in the first rise, but on their second rise, these will succeed to unite with these other elements in Europe, to even attack the fallen church in Europe who “forsaken the covenant of the sanctuary” (Daniel 11:30).
Daniel 11:30 is key which reveals that nature of WWIII.
So now we conclude the significance of all this. St. Augustine explains:
“Such a one who merely commands, let him command, until he shall be taken from the midst; that is, abolished, and then the wicked one will be revealed, whom no one questions means Antichrist.”
Who is this one to be “abolished”? How is this all happening?
You are already watching it happen right before your very eyes.
In fact, most of you are even supporting it. It is about deceiving the elect, remember?
So to conclude, we must again revisit II Thessalonians II, where Paul reminds:
“For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way. And then that wicked one shall be revealed…” (2 Thess 2:7-8)
The fathers unanimously interpreted that the restrainer involves the loss of the Holy Roman Empire, which restrained heresy.
Indeed. It is no longer “holy” and is turning into a pagan empire where Christianity is mixing with paganism.
And how was this done? Populism.
Rome will lose its effect, as we clearly see from Paul and Isaiah 19 where Christ comes to destroy the pagan idols.
The holiness of the Roman Europe is partially destroyed by Muslims and revolutions from within between Nazi and saint, which we already see brewing the rise of an Alt Right in Europe. The very Holy Roman Empire, many accuse of having been the seat of Antichrist, was the restraining agent, until it is lost to be under the Antichrist.
Luther’s interpretations have been set in reverse of the truth. The Restrainer must be demonstrated to have been active since the time of St. Paul “he who know holdeth” (standing firm) do hold, “until” that is throughout the Church history, until the Antichrist appears, to be an effective agent ‘holding fast’ to the Apostolic Tradition, which is the sole bulwark against the final apostasy must therefore become absent, where the mainstream Church must already have become apostate or fallen into apostasy. So just as it happened at the time of Antiochus Epiphanies, it will also happen in the church, where they will sacrifice to pagan idols. This will continue until Judas Maccabees come (Christ).
Secular society too must experience unprecedented lawlessness and a revolt against all that is godly. The restrainer will be absent from his office, allowing the Rebel Antichrist to launch his rebellion forthrightly in the Church and on the earth.
Lawlessness “mystery of iniquity already worketh,” in the supernatural sense, ‘the spirit of antichrist’ has been working since Christ founded the Church on Peter, making an immediate attack on Peter’s headship.
No human could live long enough to cover a time period which now stretches out over two thousand years except the Papacy, which St. Peter in Galatians 1:18 uses the Grecisised Cephas (Aramaic Kepha) rather than the Greek Petros (Πέτροσ). This is ‘The Rock,” the foundation that is removed out of the way.
This is why Christ called it “Rock”. It is the peg that holds fast the Faith.
II Thessalonians gives the key, making so clear on how to “stand firm” “stand fast” and remain in the true faith to prevent oneself from falling away. This is so clear in 2 Thessalonians 2:
Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle. (2 Thess 2:15)
Is it no wonder why the word “tradition” is so hated by all who say Vatican is Antichrist, when so clearly, as clear as the sun shines, God shines His truth for all to hold fast and avoid the grand deception by holding on to Scripture and Tradition.
Had Turkey’s populist AKP Party led by Erdogan been serious about joining the E.U, they would have reformed Turkey’s human rights record and they would have been welcomed long ago. But reality is that Germany’s populists would like to see a different Europe, just as the neo-Ottomans, would like to see a different Muslim world. And this is exactly what each of these populist movements want, be they German populists, Turkey’s populists or Japan’s populists.
And when all this is fulfilled, all what populism will do, is to take the people on a trip, circling backwards in history, while they are being further stripped, to only return back to the exact starting point, but this time they will be completely naked of all basic rights with no steak to eat.
This is why Christians need to view God’s strategy. In God’s strategy, the key is to show there is only good versus evil and that there is nothing new under the sun. That it is not always a case of ‘conservative’ versus ‘liberal’. It was conservatives after all, that conspired to kill Jesus Who gave a prophetic example of the good Samaritan over the Pharisee.
Christianity at times, will give latitude to liberals who at times can also expose evil better than many biased conservatives who sold out on single instructions regarding the faith. Beware when someone says that “all media (except theirs) is corrupt” for such vulgar statement is in itself ‘corrupt’.
Christianity is neither right or left, it has a set of pillars and it prohibits removing a single peg lest the whole structure falls.
With Europe’s populism, that one peg is “there is neither Jew nor Greek”.
Populism is not what it claims to be. It has little to do with ‘people’ and more to do with representing a set of values claiming it to be superior to the current values.
Lets get one thing straight, populism is not nationalism or even anti-multiculturalism, for it loves Japan’s imperialist pagan tradition and ancient Egypt’s paganism.
Populism is not going back to heritage as claimed, remember, its a contradiction. Unlike true nationalism, populism claims to be anti-establishment. Reality is it wants a new establishment, with an old set of values predating the history of the nation.
Populism promotes authoritarianism and nativism for it rejects ‘ordinary people of foreign descent’ and formulates demands in the name of ‘the people’ by herding them to believe that the powerless can now become powerful (pride) by simply opposing ‘the elite’.
Therefore, “anti-multiculturalism” is a steak that the masses are swallowing (much more on that next week). So for the New Right, the rebirth of authentic European values, it is only possible if the peoples of the continent go back to their roots by refusing multiculturalism and dropping the Christian values which they claim was imposed upon them.
But turning the crucifix into a cultural symbol serves to detach us from faith, religious practices and their spiritual content.
All the focus on ridding the system of minority rights, emphasizing on nativism, favoring mono-culturalism over multiculturalism, all this ends up with what was already experimented and failed miserably: Nazism, Fascism, Ottomanism, Japanism, Pharaohnism, Nordicism … its all paganism.
And how you can usually recognize them is simple: their apologists will always say that they are not racist. This is usually a sign that they are. So when they trumpet “we are not Nazis,” this is a sign that they are the face of the moderate Nazis, just as the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR are the face of moderate Islamists.
One can usually recognize them by their claims of what they are not.
