Paradigm Shift 2016: Brexit Times 50

Tank Man is the nickname of an unidentified man who stood in front of a column of tanks on June 5, 1989, the morning after the Chinese military had suppressed the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 by force. As the lead tank maneuvered to pass by the man, he repeatedly shifted his position in order to obstruct the tank’s attempted path around him. The incident was filmed and seen worldwide. More than 25 years after the incident, there is no reliable information about the identity or fate of the man.

11/8/16 began a new era in western history.

That date will live in notoriety similar to 9/11/2001 — the fall of the Berlin Wall and Tiananmen Square in 1989 — 11/22/63 — 12/7/41.

And so on.

Donald Trump predicted the 2016 election would be “Brexit times ten.”

I agree with that. Only this national populist phenomenon ought to be called, “Brexit times 50.”

These paradigm shifts take place exactly when they are meant to happen. It’s part of God’s plan for the progress of the Gospel in history. God brings the actual collapse of an order often with the destruction of a symbol in order to pave the way for His kingdom.

Think of the Handwriting on the Wall in Babylon 539 BC, the destruction of the Jewish Temple in AD 70, the Fall of the Roman Empire in AD 476, Luther’s 95 Theses in 1517. This shift might not seem as dramatic as any of those, but the 2016 election represents a destruction of a worldview that is the foundation of a political order. The overthrow of this worldview is still unfolding, but it is inevitable.

No one saw President Trump coming a year ago. No one foresaw the Twin Towers’ bombing, the Berlin Wall collapsing, the JFK assassination, Pearl Harbor … and on and on.

But it’s not Trump’s revolution. He was just the harbinger of judgment. The anger on the left is the same as the anger on the right. Feel the Bern? Sanders might have beaten Trump in the general election if the DNC had not fixed the primaries.

What’s the paradigm shift in 2016?

It’s no longer a divide between left and right. It’s now populism vs. the establishment.

Trump is the symbol.

If you know me at all, you know I am not a Trump supporter. But I do support what Trump symbolizes to a lot of people.

What does Trump symbolize and what is collapsing?

Western egalitarian humanism became the new religion of Europe and America in the past 30 years. It is now collapsing. Trump is the antithesis of that. Think about it.

Trump is Tank Man.

He had the audacity to stand up to both the Republican and Democrat machines. He foiled the experts by doing the opposite of how everyone around him thought a campaign should be run. But it could have been Sanders or any symbol of the populist rage against the establishment. In fact, the anti-Trump riots occurring in the wake of the election are a mirror image of the rage that got Trump elected.

I subscribe to the emails of several pro-abortion advocacy groups. A few weeks before the election they were saying that the Republicans might keep the Senate unless people donated to their organization. Trump was not even on their radar. They had no idea. Now Cecile Richards and all of the witches and pro-aborts are freaking out.

It doesn’t mean that we are going to end abortion in the next election cycle or even two. However, their religion is collapsing. Western collectivism is the foundation for the modern version of the ritual of human sacrifice. The individual is sacrificed for the collective. I believe it is a demonic force that hates the image of God in the Person in the womb, the weak and the elderly. And most of all, it hates the individuality that expresses the unique gifts, the light and truth of God in human beings.

When communism first entered Europe in 1917, one of the first laws that was passed was to liberalize abortion in the Soviet Union. Ever since then, socialism and communism has led to not only hundreds of millions of abortions but also the genocide of whole people groups and the oppression of Christians or anyone who would recognize a God who is greater than the state.

Soviet communism’s twin cousin is western egalitarian humanism. It is collapsing. The riots and hysteria you will see in the streets over the next few days, weeks and months is the evidence of that. God has robbed their faith. All they have ever had is their religious faith and it has been broken.

Into such unlikely upheavals, Revival and Spiritual Awakening takes place.

The United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.

By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy

Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.

Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.

Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

In the Days of These Kings (Book)

Perfect-bound Paperback — 740 pages

The Book of Daniel in Preterist Perspective

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever” (Daniel 2:44).

The overarching message of Daniel is that Jesus the Messiah is even now ruling over the nations. He is the King of kings. Daniel tells us that Messiah’s kingdom will advance in the whole world from “generation to generation” (Daniel 4:4,34). Christ’s dominion is “given to the people of the saints of the most High” (Daniel 7:22). Our purpose then is to see “all people, nations, and languages … serve and obey him” (Daniel 7:14,27).

This comprehensive work offers a fascinating look at the book of Daniel in preterist perspective. Great attention is paid to the writings of ancient and modern historians and scholars to connect the dots and demonstrate the continuity of Daniel’s prophecy with all of Scripture.
