As the World Burns :: by Patrick Wyett

Every two years we get a sunny forecast based on the upcoming elections. There is an increasing brightness, it’s the source of the light that we need to discuss. Time to take off the rose-colored goggles and put on sunglasses. The world is burning before our very eyes.

One of the latest flashpoints are those who won’t stand for the national anthem or if they do, they raise a fist in defiance. A lot of people are upset over this and I get it. What I don’t understand are those who proudly stand for the national anthem yet sit it out when it’s time to stand for their faith. Patriotic Americans but Missing-In-Action Christians recline when moral perversion is mandated by judges, pushed by politicians or lauded by your favorite TV channel.

Where was the justified outrage when Curt Schilling was fired from ESPN because he dared to post on Facebook that he didn’t want transvestites in the same bathroom as our daughters? ESPN has long been out front in pushing the homosexual agenda. Ditto for the NFL. Both seem to be in agreement with the Marxist-backed and financed Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.

You know, rioting, looting, killing cops. Yeah, those guys.

ESPN commentator Ray Lewis spoke out against BLM and, (gasp), quoted Bible verses while doing so. Bad combination, Mr. Lewis. He got fired too. I wonder, how many have stood for morality and turned off ESPN or are still sitting, supporting them through their viewership. Hey, don’t get mad at me, I’m just the messenger.

“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” (Galatians 4:16)

Seemingly everyone loved the larger-than-life personality of Muhammed Ali. Upon his death, many lauded “the greatest” as a role model and hero. He was witty, entertaining, and likeable. In the end though, despite all his success as a boxer, all his fame and fortune, Cassius Clay (his real name) died a lost soul, he died a Muslim. That’s the tragedy of his death.

The tragedy of his life is that with all of his talents, Cassius Clay could have been a wonderful Christian role model. Instead he’s responsible for those he recruited into the Nation of Islam. In light of eternity, why do we revere such a man?

In hell, there is no past or present glory and no future hope.

The question is, dear ones, as the world burns, how much do we burn for the world? I’m asking this because maybe nobody else has or will.

How much of your time and money do you spend on godly things and pursuits and how much on worldly things? Is it even your time and money or is it God’s? If so, what’s the percentage you give Him of what’s His? He gave His only begotten Son for you.

You may think that you need some time for yourself, you know, to relax and enjoy life. Aren’t you really saying that you need time away from God? Think on the implications of that.

You’ve heard or read a lot about Hillary Clinton’s email woes, and we’ll likely be privy to more. Now I’ll tell you why she had a private account and server in the first place despite all the laws and regulations that she broke in doing so. This of course centers on the infamous Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton Foundation was established in 1997 while Bill was still president. It’s illegal to sell political influence though, as has been proven, laws don’t apply to the Clintons. Bill Clinton’s estimated net worth today is $80,000,000. Hillary’s is $45,000,000. Clinton Foundation assets are nearly $200,000,000.

Ah, but the Clinton Foundation is a charitable organization.

In 2014, a whopping 5.7% went to charitable causes which is Clinton-speak for rewarding their allies and operatives. In reality it’s a political fund to finance Marxist/Globalist causes, the greatest of these being Hillary’s presidential aspirations.

So what could a wealthy contributor to the Clinton Foundation buy? From 1997 to January 2001, a president under Bill. From January 2001 until 2008, a US Senator under Hillary. As a bonus, you were getting a US presidential candidate for a couple of years, 2007-2008. From 2009 to February 2013, you could buy favor from the U.S. Secretary of State, compliments of Hillary. After that and up to the present, Hillary’s once again a presidential candidate.

Toward that last end, Bill recently said that Hillary’s been working like a demon. As we know, demons work exclusively for the misery and destruction of all humanity. I’ve checked Hillary’s record and policy positions and sure enough, Bill’s telling the truth.

Maybe the first time in decades but Slick Willie finally got one right.

At this point I’d like to state that I’m not suicidal and am in fact, in excellent health, just in case I die under mysterious circumstances. Hillary, on the other hand is not in good health, physically, mentally and especially, morally. Rumors are swirling. Will she physically make it to the election? Will there even be an election? Time will tell.

Plainly, Hillary used a private email account on her own server because she knew that she’d be abusing her office as Secretary of State and needed to keep her felonious and treasonous actions secret from possible investigation.

Hillary has had multiple cell phones physically destroyed, her server professionally wiped, and emails purged and/or withheld. Does this sound like the actions of an innocent person? Anyone truly wanting all of Hillary’s emails can get them from the National Security Agency (NSA). Check their two billion dollar data storage facility in Utah. They have everyone’s email, mine, yours and Hillary’s, plus a whole lot more.

Yes, I know the NSA can’t lawfully do what I’ve suggested. They’ve done it anyway, that’s their function. No investigation or criminal investigator will ever see Hillary’s emails. Nor at the top do they want to. Too many powerful people, in both parties, would be implicated. Same for elites around the world.

Like emails, more than a few people with info on Bill and Hillary have been deleted. From the Clintons’ Arkansas days through their White House years, such an unnatural death became known informally as an Arkancide; a combination of the words “Arkansas” and “homicide.” The media calls the rising Clinton-related body count, unrelated coincidences.

Have I told you how happy, healthy and careful I am? Just checking.

Another point about all of those unsecured emails that we now know were hacked. Hillary was emailing classified information back and forth with Ambassador Chris Stevens before his death in Benghazi, Libya. Things like his movements, schedule and personal security status. At the time, did she or the administration know or at least suspect that those emails were being hacked?

I can’t answer that but I can ask it.

It does appear apparent that Ambassador Stevens was abandoned to die by the complete lack of response over the thirteen hours that the fatal attack took place. Hillary’s emails were convenient Intel for his attackers. Whatever threat Stevens posed, whatever he knew that could hurt Barry Soetoro’s (aka Barack Hussein Obama) 2012 re-election campaign, was silenced by his gruesome murder.

Hillary’s pouring gas as the world burns.

Maybe her coughing fits emanate from smoke inhalation. During one particular episode in Cleveland, I saw her take a drink of water to help with the coughing. To my surprise, she didn’t melt.

A next to final note on Hillary before I move on. As Secretary of State, Hillary championed UN Human Rights Commission Resolution 16/18, also known as the Istanbul Process. This proposal, if adopted, would criminalize any and all perceived criticism of Islam. You know, stuff like telling the truth about Islam. Look it up.

Speaking of those peaceful adherents of Islam.

Iran threatens the United States and Israel, captures U.S. sailors in the Persian Gulf, holds US citizens for ransom, violates every treaty they’ve ever signed, harasses US warships as a matter of policy, is developing nuclear weapons and the ballistic missiles to deliver them to target, and sponsors worldwide jihad. In shameless response, Barry has recently sent $1.7 billion dollars in total to the Iranians.

Other estimates put that number at $33.6 billion over the last couple of years. But Barry said it’s not ransom money, even though it’s been admitted after a hostage spilled the beans that the hostages waiting to leave Iran, waited a little longer until part of the money, a mere four hundred million dollars on pallets were delivered.

Barry doesn’t negotiate with terrorists. A “negotiation” suggests that each side is trying to get the most from the other. Barry capitulates to terrorists. Takes their side with your money.

Whatever the actual dollar amount, that money could’ve been better spent on our veterans who are dying on waiting lists rather than giving it to our enemies.

Open treason with no accountability. Where’s the Republican congress? Why, with their Democratic comrades of course, looking the other way.

On a brighter note, our current Secretary of State is a relative bargain compared to our last one, Hillary having “lost” 6 billion dollars in taxpayer money during her criminal tenure. By comparison, John Kerry’s State Department’s only funneled 9 million dollars to his daughter’s non-profit. Not quite Clinton Foundation numbers, yet, but it’s a start. (At least Kerry’s daughter is married to an Iranian, if that makes you feel any better.)

If you burn for the world, you’ll end up burning with the world. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is the only fire escape.

A few months back, eight of us went to protest outside where a famous medium was scheduled to speak. Tickets were something like $40 to $75, I was told. Throngs of people were going in, mostly women. As they walked by, we’d ask if they were Christians. Many stated that they were.

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.” (Deuteronomy 18:10-12)

When we told these people that God forbids such things and that by attending such an event they were opening themselves up to the occult we were told to “Shut up.” Or “The Bible doesn’t say that.” Or “It’s just entertainment.”

Just entertainment…

“Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.” (Leviticus 9:31)

Preachers, are you warning your people about such things? Are you seeking to protect and disciple those “baby” Christians in your charge?

“For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” (James 5:13-14)

Our efforts outside that packed arena stopped just one person from going in. Was he worth it? You bet he was.

As the world burns, there are many beliefs that spread the fire.

Men believe that they’re women, women believe that they’re men, atheists believe there’s no god while Muslims believe Allah is God. These can be fervently held beliefs, yet fervency doesn’t make them true.

They are lies from the “father of lies” (John 8:44).

I recently had a transvestite tell me that gender was a state of mind. No friends, gender is an immutable fact of biology. It’s mental illness that’s a state of mind, and on this topic, rooted in the depths of moral depravity.

Maybe it’s a secular thing that we narrow-minded folks can’t understand.

The word “secular” can be defined as having no religious or spiritual nature. By this definition one can either be influenced by religious theory or can choose to be free of such things. Not true.

Everyone is spiritual in nature by design, there is no neutrality, there is no apart from the spiritual realm. If you’re secular, you are choosing the authority of Satan in some manner. Demonic possession, demonic influence or demonic oppression. Those living in darkness, who know not the light of Christ, are subject to these things. Apart from Jesus, there is no defense. The most vile behaviors and actions come from this wicked presence.

As I get ready to send this article in to the editor, bombs have gone off in New York and New Jersey, a Somali Muslim has stabbed nine people in Minnesota and U.S. forces have bombed a Syrian Army base in advance of an ISIS attack on that base.

“Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:” (Isaiah 55:6)

Even and especially, as the world burns.
