The international COVID 19 response has enlightened the world to just how fast governments can move to restrict freedom and overrule basic rights, especially the right to free speech and religious expression. Combine this with the hatred expressed by the “hate doesn’t live here” crowd if you don’t agree with them on their pet issues, or even wearing a mask during these COVID 19 times. Then add in the massive movement in the news media and the Democratic Party toward socialism, lawlessness, and support for organizations like Antifa that promote fascism in the name of anti-fascism. We then have a formula for how fast your rights as a Christian can be trampled, your life endangered.
The revolution taking place in America is fomented by communist actors. Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, for example, stated on The Real News Network July 23, 2015, “The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia [co-founder Alicia Garza] in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories.” This opens the door for hypocrisy. Which matters most—Black lives or Marxism? Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and many leaders of the Democratic Party are socialists. They take issues that need to be addressed, use a little truth to make a better lie, wrap the words “rights” and “justice” around them, and hijack them, using activists as pawns, not to solve the issue, but to advance their Marxist agenda. They are ideological parasites.
Fascism, Marxism, Socialism, Communism—are all different flavors of the same poison. They pit people against one another, engender support, and when they win, they establish tyranny. Russia, China, Nicaragua, Cuba, Venezuela, and the list goes on and on. COVID 19 lockdowns are just the fire drill. You can see that religious freedoms have been taken away in many cases. COVID 19 may be where it begins, but look at a recent Christian Post article about China to see where it goes—cash rewards paid by the communist government to rat out Christians, whose houses are then raided, and officials removing Christian images replacing them with pictures of Chinese leaders, saying, “These are the greatest gods.” Communism abolishes all religion, making the state the god of the people.
This is why communism is a prophetic threat. You, as a prophetic person, have a job to do—As Christ stated in Matthew 28:18-20, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.” In America, we have the right to do this freely. But all those socialist warriors mentioned in this Jot would gleefully remove your right to the free exercise of religion AND your free speech when it conflicts with their political/Marxist agenda. In this country, we have been blessed with liberty in Christ and by law. Don’t be deceived by communism. It threatens our prophetic destiny.
