News story after news story, they all have one common denominator; they cry out for one thing. "Where is our Hero? Who's gonna' come and rescue us out of this pit we've dug for ourselves?" Will there be anyone who will have the courage to "stand in the hedge and make up the gap?" Or will it be as it was with Israel; God said He could find no one?
Upsetting the status quo means shaking up and displacing an entrenched, comfortable political establishment. For Tea Partiers, this means not just the opposition party, but also the establishment in its own party – the Republican Party. Take, for instance, the current primary challenge in Kentucky by Tea Partier Matt Bevin against Republican Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell.
Russia's aggression in the Ukraine has dominated the world news of late. With Putin seeking to reestablish the old Soviet Union, we can see the prophetic biblical end time events appearing right before our eyes. Whether Putin is the "Gog" which is to come is unknown, but one thing is totally certain, one cannot read Ezekiel 38 and not see the perfect parallels of our day.
In his 1975 cult-classic, Rollerball, Caan plays Rollerball Champion, Jonathan E., who represents the hope of a global community dominated and controlled by an absurdly powerful, internationally aligned governmental authority known simply as the 'corporations.' The film basically paints a picture of a dystopian society in which all the needs of the people are determined and administered (food, shelter, medical care, even companionship and recreational drugs) by a global corporate state.
When we look back at the atrocities committed by Hitler, Mao, Stalin and Mussolini, we say, “That will never happen here.” We turn a blind eye and choose not to see the parallel between then and what is happening in our nation now through our “foreign to America’s Constitution” leader in the White House, a leader the American people tolerate.
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
