“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” (Ephesians 2:2).
In the lower atmosphere, there is a world-wide Kingdom of Darkness which is ruled by the Dark Prince, who is Satan. He directs, orchestrates, manages, and manipulates the “course of this world.”
Before we were enlightened to the fact that we were members of the Church over which Christ Jesus is the Head, we, generally, went along just to get along with Satan’s governing of this world. He and his minions were, continually, busy trying to subvert all standards of decency that existed in his Dark Kingdom.
THE GOSPEL WAS DIVINELY DIRECTED WESTWARD
The Dispensation of the Grace of God was ushered in after the close of “The Acts of the Apostles.” The Gospel, as well as, letters that became the written Word of God, providentially, moved from what we refer to as the Middle-East westward—from east to west. The Bible student should recognize that the direction of the Gospel went from the east to the west.
The Apostle Paul was forbidden to go eastward into Asia to preach the Gospel. God forbid the Gospel to go eastward. In plainer words, the Gospel and the written Word of God went to Europe, not to the Orient.
“Now when they [Paul and his companions] had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia” (Acts 16:6).
“And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us” (Acts 16:9).
As a result of the Lord’s intervention, Paul and his Party were dispatched into Europe, not Asia.
Some students of the Bible believe the Lord Jesus Christ had many people in the British Isles, unbeknownst to them, who would be receptive to the Gospel of the Grace of God when it was delivered to them.
Did the Lord, providentially, allow the British to have a Navy so that “Britannia ruled the waves?” I believe He did. The British carried the Word of God to the ends of the earth. The British Missionaries were responsible for having the Bible translated into almost every tongue on earth.
SATAN RELENTLESSLY ATTACKS CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE
This must have stirred up Satan’s hatred for Western Civilization and, especially, the English speaking people who learned how to handle the Word of God.
In order to get the Christian off-track, the Evil One tried to re-define what is normal. For over 400 years, Satan and his horde of unbelievers (“the children of disobedience”) have tried to subvert the Christian civilization by re-defining words. An example of this is; I have written on Page 3 of my first Authorized King James wide-margin Bible (circa early 1960s). I still have this Bible. Satan continued to attempt to subvert Christian Doctrine as evidenced by the following.
EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE IN THE REVERSE
Anarchy has become Freedom
Law Breaking Has Become Morality
Psychedelic Orgies have Become Religious Experiences
Ugliness Has Become Art
Pornography Has Become “Cultural Literature”
Foolishness Has Become Fashion
Nudity Has Become “Sensible”
Sheer Laziness Has Become Intellectual Virtue
(This is attributed, all or in part, to Dr. Peter S. Ruckman)
Gilbert Keith Chesterton (May 1874 – June 1936), better known as G. K. Chesterton, was an English writer, lay theologian, poet, philosopher, dramatist, journalist, orator, literary and art critic, biographer, and Christian apologist. Chesterton is often referred to as the “prince of paradox.” Time magazine, in a review of a biography of Chesterton, observed of his writing style: “Whenever possible Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, allegories—first carefully turning them inside out.”
One of his famous quotes has become very popular today—“the Normalization of the Abnormal.” The main tool for the subverting of the American culture is the Illuminati’s control of the Main Stream Media. The remnants of what had been the American Christian Culture are being bombarded, continually, by the MSM’s attack of making the perverse seem healthy, and the healthy seem sick. Once the controlling satanic forces of the media make marriage and family obsolete, they will be well on their way to making the Abnormal Normal.
MAKING THE ABNORMAL NORMAL
We are being inundated with Cross Dressing, Pedophilia (Penn State), and normalizing distorted ideas—such as—Trans Gender Movement promoted by MSM. Pedophilia should not be on the list of abnormal behavior. Wife abuse is abnormal; Pedophilia is normal. Transvestite’s sex change is normal. Inter-racial marriage is “cool” (ala Kardashian girls).
Same sex Sodomy is just another life-style. Deviant behavior is normal. Normal behavior is now deviant. Parents who spank their children commit child abuse. Caring parents reason with their kids who do wrong. Children born out of wedlock are the normal; whereas, children born to married people are abnormal (or soon will be).
It is normal for a marriage to be between a man and a woman. There is a Satanic drive to make a marriage between two people of the same sex—normal. How can “Gay Marriage” be anything but same sex sodomy?
The effort, today, is to normalize a lesbian being the husband in a woman’s “gay marriage.” Likewise, we see the effort for the normalization of a man in a same “sex marriage” being the wife. It is abnormal for a lesbian to be the husband in a “gay marriage.” It is abnormal for a man in a “gay marriage” to be the wife. There is a push to make these normal.
The “NORMALIZATION OF THE ABNORMAL” tactic is subverting all standards of decency. The indecent Main Stream Media desires to see a once great nation mired in moral decay. Today’s so-called Progressive Politics is in lock-step with MSM.
