The Blurring of East and West
March 25, 2011
The legacy of Barack Hussein Obama will be that of a man who used the Office of the President of the United States to blur the lines, which clearly separate the West from the East. If he had understood world history, which only the Bible can fully relate, he would understand God’s role in separating the two.
In Genesis, chapter one, we see the architectural plan for a kingdom on earth governed as God governs His entire universe from the heavens. His creation was the result of a cycle of six days of work, dedicating the seventh day to a day of rest from all His work, which, if it is good for God, is also good for man. All things begin with the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens (Genesis 2:4).
God planted a Garden eastward in Eden where He placed the man, once the ground was watered from above so there was plant life, which would provide good food for him to eat. But man had a double nature of flesh and the Spirit, both of which would require feeding from God who created man for His own good pleasure. He gave to him the living water from above, which represents the Spirit of life, breathed into man, as well as the spirit of the good waters surrounding the Garden.
Immediately, Genesis, chapter two, jumps into the prophecy of the empires of man to come, which would be of different spiritual waters that are not good. These other much-less-than-good spiritual waters would encompass the empires of Cush (Egypt), Assyria and the Babylonian system of empires, all coming from the seawater, which separated the dry land and the western hemisphere from the eastern hemisphere.
God made a distinct division between the good and the evil as seen in the two trees of the Garden. It was only by obedience to God that the evil of the serpent would be separated from God’s creation. The commandments God gave, He spoke in truth. On the other hand, the lure of Satan into his belief system, better known as religion, had a foundation of the lie, which would bring suffering, sickness and, ultimately, death. The sin of man was a result of his choice to disobey God and reject His truth for the lie. The spiritual wall was set in place, running right down the center of the Garden, separating him from the God of truth with Satan’s first lies of the first religious belief system.
God’s precious man of His creation would have been lost to sin forever, unless God had intervened in the affairs of men. Adam and Eve, in disobedience to Him, had deliberately chosen the dark side where there was no spiritual living water, only the spiritual evil waters found in the empires of men. The dynamic between God and man was altered, with man being driven eastward from the Garden, and closure to the Garden being made on the east side of it. He had chosen the ruler-ship, which God relegated to the East under Satan, instead of His ruler-ship on the west side of the closure.
God would choose a man called Abraham, to save him and his descendants from the sentence of separation and death in the East by His mercy and plan for redemption. Abraham was moved westward, back to the Garden, which became the land of promise and destination for his descendants. This promise, in turn, would one day encompass the entire earth to become a kingdom paradise for all nations to be ruled by Jesus as a spiritual inheritance only for those who share the same faith in and obedience to Him that Abraham had for his God.
The ruler-ship of God over His nation Israel would run into a roadblock once the nation possessed the Land, whereby the Hebrew descendants of Abraham committed the same sin as that of Adam and Eve. So, God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, born of the woman and the Spirit of life, in order to save His brothers of mankind. He would place His flock of sheep on His right, separating them unto life from the goats on the left who were destined to die. Hence, to this day, we have the right separated from the left, as is the West from the East.
When the Hebrew people of Israel rejected God and His Son, the church of the apostles was sent out to the world to call the true believers and the legitimate inheritance of Abraham back to the truth and kingdom living. This apostolic group of men and women were known as the Way. The church, like Jesus, was rejected by the Hebrew people, so it moved, ever westward, through Europe and finally to America in the West where the waters of religion were separated from it, and it, from the East, to become a shining example of liberty and freedom under God and His rule.
There were no religious controls within her governments. It would seem that the West had at last been successfully separated by the truth of the Bible from the East where the lies of religion ruled over the nations.
But again, the lures of Satan struck at the West. America had received the blessing and bounty of God, which He loves to lavish upon His children. However, just as Moses warned Israel about what would happen to the nation, she, too, soon became prideful and forgetful. It took very little time for her to forget about God and that her blessings in this great land of America had come from Him; she had no gratitude left in her.
For a short time in history, she loved her country and was patriotic to both nation and God. Now, the agents of Satan’s liberalism have forcefully removed the truth from a generation, which no longer knows God or has any passion for this great nation. It is engulfed in a sea of immorality – sexually and politically.
America was duped and led astray by Satan with his desire to destroy this new breed of people who honored God, just as the Hebrew people of Israel were destroyed by him before her. America and Israel became sisters under God in His redemptive plan for mankind, which is carried out by Jesus. Israel’s rejection of Him led to her downfall, as will America’s rejection of Him lead to her destruction.
As the lines blur, today, between East and West, our elected governments fail to provide the leadership in the West, which is necessary for keeping it separate from the religious regimes of the East. In fact, there is a conspiracy to take the West down until it becomes fully blended with the East, and the way to do it is to get rid of Jesus and His truth, so that religion can reign.
Jesus is that same tree of life that was rejected by Adam and Eve in the beginning. It is from Him that the spiritual river of life flows, the same river that surrounded the Garden, called the Pishon. It was this water, which Jesus offered the Samaritan woman at the well and it was the same water that flowed from His pierced side along with His blood, shed for our salvation.
America will only survive if the West separates again from the East, instead of becoming one with it. The most westerly shores of America, which sit perched on the ring of fire within the Pacific Ocean, will certainly feel the wrath of God as He releases His hand of protection, which keeps these seawaters away from the dry land – the same hand of protection that protected the Israelites from the sea at the time of the Exodus.
As our governments blur the borders, soon there will be nothing left except a ten-nation global community, eastern in its nature as a One World Order of politics, religion and economics. Satan shall rule for a brief period of time as the Antichrist, until the one world government begins to self-destruct and fall apart. It shall be then that the Lion of Judah will bring down His judgment upon a sin-filled world.
The western side of the ring of fire is yet to experience the terror and destruction, such as this nation has never experienced before, which originated with an earthquake in Chile, followed by disaster in New Zealand and then, in Japan, moving in a circle around the rim of the eastern sea. Great devastation will occur from the effects of the earthquakes, causing the sea to rage like a terrifying beast that rises up from it. The beast will be allowed to tear apart those who wanted to remove and destroy the truth of God and replace it with lies and immoral behavior of every kind.
God does not grow weary, nor does He sleep, but He will cause us to have a seventh-day restful millennium. At this time, the Lord will quiet the tumult and return the peace of the Garden to this tired world, weakened by the wars of men and their religious empires. Throughout history they have risen and fallen in the East, one after another, until they finally will self-destruct.
The rivers of Genesis, chapter two, prophesied this many millennia ago, describing the spiritual rivers of empires, which no longer exist, except for the Euphrates River, which is still with us, though it is in the process of drying up, along with the defeat of the final Babylonian Empire. It is about to go down, like that great statue of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, with its feet of iron and clay, when the Rock of ages, Jesus, strikes it on its feet and breaks it into pieces (see Daniel 2:32-35).
“Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues (Revelation 18:4).”
And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. And there shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever (Revelation 22:1-5).
