A Devotion for 5 December 2019 Anno Domini, the Anglican Orthodox Communion Worldwide
1 Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. 2 He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not. 3 And dost thou open thine eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with thee? 4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one. 5 Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass; 6 Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day.
Job 14:1-6 (KJV)
1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, 2 Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? 3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. 4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. 5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? 6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; 7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8 Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb? 9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it, 10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors, 11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
Job 38:1-11 (KJV)
Have you considered to what extent young men of our day are being deliberately feminized by every instrument of government and the corporate plutocracy emerging in America. No longer do the local governments and communities decide moral norms – it is big government and corporate interests whose aims are at best suspicious and at worst treasonous! The traditional American is forced to give his business to large commercial enterprises whose political objectives are to destroy his own traditional America, or else go without. Overgrown government bureaucracy, too, implements policies and social values that are in absolute opposition to the common will of the people. Regardless of whom we elect to public office, these are soon forced into that deep-state melting pot in which all must think alike in lock-step with openly immoral and vicious public policy.
All of this has transpired just a few decades after the sacrifices and dedicated courage of the last great generation of World War II took to the battleline to defend traditional American values and to insure our continued security and freedoms. You may wonder where God could be in all of this sudden degradation we see and experience in American society today. To be candid, God is NOT involved in this great change sweeping our nation. God does not intrude where He is not welcome, and we have long since expelled even the mention of our Lord from every public venue and institution of learning. Instead of education, we are hell-bent on indoctrination of such depraved nature and dimension as would have been scoffed and ridiculed just a few short years ago.
There was, a few years ago, introduced a new term called ‘UNISEX’ to our society. This new word made few ripples in popular dissent. It seemed fine to the average American and churchman as long as it did not impose itself into the church or community. Long before this, the Bible and prayer had been removed from our schools; and abortion, which is in no place permitted in the US Constitution (or even mentioned) was ruled to be ‘Constitutional’ by decadent justices of the US Supreme Court. Before overturning a righteous people, their society must be disarmed in the same way that Balaam was instrumental in disarming ancient Israel in the face of an enemy. “But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.” If the introduction of sinful perversions can be introduced to separate the people of America from God, then the land is left vulnerable for defeat by the powers of evil and worldly men. That is precisely what has happened, and is happening, to America.
The Lord would have His men to be men, and his women to be women. That is the way He created them from the beginning, and that is the way God expects them to remain. Regardless the surgeries, counseling, and artificial pretentions, a man born of woman remains a man; and a woman remains a woman from birth to grave. DNA is not changed by surgery or false philosophies.
We still have a few manly fellows left to fight the wars we wage on far-flung battlefields, many of which have nothing to do with the American national interests. But according to a fairly recent issue of Army Times, in the 1950’s when every able-bodied male in America was subject to the draft at age 18, nine out of ten young men were found to be eligible for military service. Today, when we have an all-volunteer Army and a smaller pool of examinees, only four out of ten are eligible due to obesity, physical inadequacy, or drug and criminal records. This should be sobering to those readers who love our country.
Young boys in school are taught there is something wrong about being masculine. They are taught to become more ‘gentle’ and less aggressive in play. True competition on the sports field is discouraged and some masculine games are forbidden altogether due to some risk of injury. In support of cures for breast cancer, young men are encouraged, or even required, to wear pink suits when competing on sports teams. This has nothing to do with a concern for cancer cure, but all to do with the feminization of America. Once the dark angel gains a foothold on the perverse desires in the heart of the people, there are no longer barriers of defense. All moral imperatives of biblical and social nature are abandoned once the walls have been breached. From feminization to same-sex marriage, to transvestitism, and other unimaginable evils, to total depravity is the destiny to which that Broad Way leads. Unisex is the delusion of the devil!
It is due time that our men “Gird up now thy loins like a man” and act like the man that God made them. Manhood is a Godly trait in the same sense as Womanhood is so Godly. Without womanhood, there could be no men; and, conversely, without manhood, there could no daughters. Two men or two women cannot produce offspring.
Why does God declare homosexuality to be such depravity of sin – an abomination? It is because, first of all, it is an affront to the Creative model of God in making one man and one woman for each other; and in the second place, it flies in the face of the first institution God ordained in the Garden at Eden – MARRIAGE. Marriage is a model for Christ and His Church. There are not two Lords (two men) and there does not exist a Church outside the One Universal Church (two women). We have one Lord (Man) for one Bride (woman). There are not two lords to stand alone, or two brides without one husband (man). Where is the logic in the evil abounding in our land today? The evil and wicked attitudes permeating society are senseless and unreasonable even in the mind of a child. Yet we have men and women of power advocating these sins of reprobation. Do you not wonder why?
Allow me to posit an opinion: The Fabianists, the Red Chinese, the Cambodian Pol Pots – all seek to reduce populations of their respective countries in massive numbers. Since they term themselves the ‘elite’ – a term quite compatible with any plutocracy – they feel that they only are intelligent enough and sufficiently worthy to make decisions (even of life and death) for you and every other citizen. They believe their lifestyles will be enhanced by reducing drastically the world population to a size no larger than one-third the current world population. They seek to accomplish this objective by any means (the end justifies the means, remember?) – by means such as abortion, dissolution of marriage, (as is advocated in the Communist Manifesto), man-made disease, wars, and artificially created famine (such as California).
It is high time for the men of America to gird their loins about for battle and stand up for the freedoms and liberties which are the God-given rights of all men and women. Stop the erosion of Constitutional rights on the part of a corrupt judiciary, legislative branch, and even a maverick executive branch as was experienced in the late presidency of the first Muslim to hold that office. Defense of the home and nation is a God-ordained role of Manhood. Why have we surrendered that responsibility? Behold, the trumpet sounds, and the role is being called. Where do you stand, Man?
