Divided and Conquered? :: by Patrick Wyett

“And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand” (Matthew 12:25)

Do you think Satan knows this? Of course he does, as do his minions in authority. This is their strategy for destroying relationships, families, churches, communities, societies and civilization. Much around you is disintegrating, divided by doubt, deception and manipulation, conquered by the same.

History is repeated.

“For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed” (Isaiah 9:16).

Sounds like a modern pronouncement, doesn’t it. Well, it is. It’s happening right now. Here’s why:

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Proverbs 1:7).

By and large, we’re a nation of fools. We fear a lot of things: Losing our jobs, terrorist attacks, election outcomes and (gasp), and being put in a situation that requires a moral stand for our faith, etc.

But we don’t fear God.

Why is that?

Should you really fear God?

“And I say unto you my friends, be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, fear him” (Luke 12:4-5).

Those are Jesus’ words, not mine. Solomon has some relevant thoughts too:

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

Notice it’s the whole duty, not a divided duty between man’s carnal wants first, then giving God the leftovers. When we allow Satan to twist our minds with his lies and our lusts, we deny our divine duty; our reason for being created.

As has been famously said, “We have met the enemy and they are us.”

We are a people, nation and world divided. In both the White House and Congress dwells a satanic presence propagating this division, executing their part of a larger plan that will culminate in a one-world government, religion and ruler. It’s eschatology in full-motion.

Let’s discuss a weapon of raw division: Racism.

Whatever color you are, wherever you come from, someone somewhere isn’t going to like you because of it. Maybe even seek to do you harm. Here’s a divide, if it’s a skinhead assault, it gets reported, as well it should, if it’s a flash mob of blacks attacking whites, it doesn’t. These latter occurrences are a growing problem nationwide, another media best-kept secret.

Oops, did I write “black” instead of “African-American?” There is no such thing as an African-American. Or do people have a dual citizenship between this country and a continent? Identifying by race or distant origin followed by “American” is another tactic of division. President Teddy Roosevelt, a man of passionate opinion, spoke of such;

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all … The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities…There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Martin Luther King dreamed of a world in which people would be judged based on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. Sorry Dr. King, America today has become the land of evil character being protected by the color of skin—if that skin happens to be other than white, and covering for example, a Marxist politician or marauding street thug.

“And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear” (1 Peter 1:17).

Your color, nationality, wealth, position, stature or authority doesn’t matter to God. Your actions, thoughts and motivations do. By the way, did you notice that pesky admonition to fear God again?

Driving race-based anger in the black community is a profession for some, and an ongoing emphasis of the Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Hussein Obama Administration. You’ve certainly heard of the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri over the police shooting death of Michael Brown. Brown was shot after a strong-arm robbery at a convenience store and subsequent attack on a police officer. He wasn’t armed, but at 6’4” and 270 pounds, he wouldn’t need to be to be lethal.

Here’s the problem, or opportunity, as the race-baiters see it: Michael Brown was black, the cop he attacked and hospitalized, was white. Case closed, Brown was shot for being black.

The greatest threat to blacks isn’t police officers or even the Ku Klux Klan. Read the FBI crime statistics. Check out white on black crime, black on white crime and black on black crime. Is the truth racist? Do numbers, in this instance, lie?

An important underlying factor is the “gangsta” sub-culture that’s so alluring to minority youth. No, I didn’t attack a skin color, I’ve addressed a destructive mindset of machismo, violence, profanity, prolific promiscuity and lawlessness that directly leads to low expectations, broken families, substance abuse, poverty, incarceration and death. Until it’s addressed forthrightly by blacks and whites, this problem isn’t going away.

That’s what Satan wants, anger and the self-destroying poison of bitterness that defines racism. Institutionalized physical slavery has been defeated in the U.S. Slavery of the mind has not. Amongst the neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, Black Panthers, La Raza and many others, do you know which racist is the most dangerous to you? The one you harbor in your heart; the one that gives Satan a stronghold to operate from.

Let a person’s attitude and actions define them, not the genetics of their parents.

Here’s a snapshot of Barry’s priorities. Three White House officials attended Michael Brown’s funeral in a media circus designed to maximize the fanning of racial discord. By comparison, no White House official attended LT General Harold Greene’s funeral. General Greene was killed in action in Afghanistan in early August. Barry himself didn’t make the General’s funeral; he was too busy playing golf. Divide and conquer. Get the picture?

How about a $15.00 an hour minimum wage? Do businesses absorb this higher cost of conducting business? No, they pass it on to their customers. Can you afford a twelve dollar Big Mac? (Classic communist strategies of class warfare and redistribution of wealth).

Did you watch the president’s speech on ISIS/ISIL? He got off to a, lying start. He said, “Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.”

Really Barry? No religion condones the killing of innocents? I wonder what this passage from the Qurn means:

“So when you meet those who became infidels, so strike the necks (decapitating) until you make a great slaughter among them. So firmly bind them. So let there either be free dismissals (conversion) or for a ransom, until the war is over (when all infidels worldwide have either been converted or slain). In this way, and if Allah wills, he will take vengeance on them, but he would rather test some of you (Muslims) by the other (infidels). And those who were killed (martyred while killing infidels) for the sake of Allah, so he will not let their works go astray (Surah 47:4).

And ISIL isn’t Islamic? The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant isn’t Islamic? What part of “Islamic” doesn’t Barry understand, or more accurately put, doesn’t want us to understand. He did hit on a partial truth, though. The number one threat to Christians and Jews in the Middle East and Africa are Muslims. And the number one threat to Muslims in the Middle East and Africa are Muslims.

These barbarians are consumed by a demonic bloodlust, even against their own. This is typical of how Satan rewards those he’s duped.

The actions of ISIS/ISIL is Islam in its purest, most unadulterated form. Jihadists emulate the actions and live out the admonitions of their “prophet” Mohammed. The irony here is that those of us non-Muslims who know Islam and reveal it for what it is, and those Muslims within Islam who are obedient to the Quran and the Hadith are in agreement on this point. Then there are those living in denial or utter ignorance who prefer to think happy thoughts about Islam.

As Will Rogers once stated, “There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.”

There are Muslims right now plotting to bring that electric fence moment to the undiscerning.

In the 1930s, a lone voice in England warned of the dangers of a rising threat in Germany known as National Socialism, more commonly known today as Nazism. That discerning man was Winston Churchill, who later became Prime Minister of England during WWII. Prior to being proven right, Churchill was laughed at and scorned for his views. Neville Chamberlain, Prime Minister of England at the time, chose to appease Hitler rather than confront his increasingly aggressive actions.

The forward-thinking Mr. Churchill had insight into Islam as well.

“Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism (Islam) is a militant and proselytizing faith.” (Winston Churchill writing in 1899)

A couple of decades of reflection didn’t alter his views:

“They (Muslims) hold it as an article of duty, as well as of faith, to kill all who do not share their opinions and to make slaves of their wives and children … Austere, intolerant, well-armed, and bloodthirsty.” (Winston Churchill 1921 Cairo Conference)

Islam a metastasizing cancer in the U.S. and worldwide. Everywhere that Muslims colonize, the indigenous civilization is degraded and ultimately destroyed if Islam is not forcefully confronted and defeated. Will Muslims somehow behave differently because they’re in America? The destruction of America is the goal! Muslims feel oppressed by not living under Sharia law. By this oppression, you’re forced conversion—or execution is justified.

It took the beheadings of Americans James Foley and Steven Sotloff to even get Barry to address ISIS/ISIL. Untold numbers of Christians and Muslims had been slaughtered in the most gruesome ways in the months prior. I’ll note here that Foley and Sotloff were sympathetic to the Muslim terrorists and were in Syria covering the fighting from that point-of-view. From these “friends” were their executioners. I am not implying that they deserved what happened to them. They didn’t. Through bad decisions, they put themselves at risk. Never trust barbarians.

A quick reminder on ISIS/ISIL. This organization got its start from U.S. training of Muslim terrorists in 2012. The goal was to use them to overthrow Bashar Assad’s secular dictatorship in Syria and replace it with a Jihadist dictatorship as they did in Libya. In past articles I’ve documented Barry’s obsession with overthrowing Assad and warned that it would be an ongoing priority.

The attack on September 11, 2012 which left four Americans dead in Benghazi was precipitated by a U.S. weapons smuggling operation out of Libya to covertly supply the Muslim terrorists in Syria. In an attempted cover-up of those activities, U.S. forces were ordered to stand down during the nine hour attack. As a result, Americans were left to die, and they did.

Barry has proposed to openly arm the “moderate” Syrian rebels who are fighting Assad. First off, there’s no such thing as a moderate Muslim terrorist. In his speech, Barry said that by arming these “moderates”, that they can fight ISIS/ISIL for us. Secondly, Barry wanted to conduct airstrikes in Syria, supposedly against ISIS/ISIL.

The “moderate” Muslim terrorist leaders of the groups Barry proposed to openly arm were meeting in a secret bunker. Turns out, somebody couldn’t keep a secret. Those leaders, 45 of them, were killed by an explosion in the bunker. Since then, these very same groups have promoted new leadership. These leaders have signed a non-aggression pact with ISIS/ISIL. It gets worse.

Last week, congress, Republicans and Democrats, voted to authorize the arming of the Muslim Jihadist terrorists in Syria, you know, the ones who won’t fight ISIS/ISIL. Undoubtedly some of these weapons and supplies will be going to ISIS/ISIL. Then again, you can’t expect Barry to really go after the terrorist group he founded, and they are a convenient excuse to get us involved in yet another Muslim war, this time fully on the side of Islam.

You can bet the ongoing airstrikes in Syria will involve Syrian government positions, once again in an attempt to overthrow Assad. The WWIII question is, what will Russia do in response?  Syria is their ally. Barry’s past efforts to directly attack Syria were thwarted by Russia. What will happen now?

Meanwhile, 3000 US troops are being sent to Liberia, into a burgeoning pandemic of Ebola which appears to be airborne transmissible. Why, what possible purpose can there be sending in U.S. Armed Forces there, to do what, contract a fatal virus? This is unexplained idiocy with a predictably horrible outcome.

Yet no troops are being sent to our southern border where they could be of substantial use to stem the invasion of illegals, drug dealers and terrorists coming into our nation unchallenged. A border undefended, is no border. No borders equates to no sovereignty, and in this case, no rule of law. This is treason against our nation.

Have you heard about the respiratory illness, Enterovirus D-68, which is putting hundreds of children in the hospital across several states? It was last seen in the U.S. 50 years ago. What a coincidence that all kinds of infected illegals are being dispersed around the country at U.S. taxpayer expense and now U.S .citizens are becoming ill. As I’ve told you before, this is all planned.

When our soldiers in Liberia become infected with Ebola, what happens to them? The possible answers are dark indeed.

We are divided by our own government. Physical threats abound.

Are you conquered?

You are if you aren’t saved. Do you have the gift of salvation through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ? All you have to do is admit you’re sinner, ask God for forgiveness, welcome Jesus Christ to fill the spiritual void inside you and commit your life to Him.

As a Christian, you can only be conquered if you give up or give in. It’s a choice to surrender. God offers a strength through faith that the natural world can’t comprehend.

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4).

If you’re a Christian, great, but you aren’t done yet. Being a Christian is an ongoing, lifelong process, just like being a doctor or pharmacist isn’t completed when you first make a commitment and start attending class. Would you feel fully capable after a year in medical school?

Of course not. How about when you graduate, receive your degree and certifications. Are you at the pinnacle of your knowledge? No, experience and continuing education will continue throughout your career. You only become more knowledgeable with dedication and time.

Likewise, becoming a Christian isn’t the end of your spiritual journey, it’s only the start; an ongoing process of reading your Bible, praying and maturing as you reflect on, and do what the Lord has called you to do. Yes, God has a specific plan for you. There are steps along the way that you must complete, and in doing so, progress. Your Christian “education” is lifelong, as you honor your commitment.

What trained pharmacist works instead as a librarian? Just as a pharmacist completes their required schooling and goes into their chosen field, you too must advance in the faith and take on the increasingly more fulfilling responsibilities of being a Christian. What are they? Your answers are in the Bible and prayer.

Now get to class! (I’ll meet you there.)
