The Shape of Things to Come:

Yes people, we are being herded like sheep to the slaughter into what will be the absolute worst "TOTALITARION POLICE STATE" that the world has ever seen. We have already entered into a surveillance society, where our every move is tracked and monitored. Every place you look, out in public, you will see cameras (the all seeing eye) up on buildings, on poles, in trees, etc. Enter any building and you will see cameras, they are even in places you can't see, hidden in ceilings, walls and even in everyday objects such as clocks, lamps, picture frames, mirrors, you name it.

I know that there are many you don't believe it, but there are surveillance cameras way out in space that are powerful enough that they can "see" a dime on the ground in a parking lot. These "spies in the sky" have been watching us for years. Every cell phone made after the year 2000 has an imbedded locator chip, so that if need be, the user can be tracked as to his/her exact location. Every car you buy, since 2000-2001, has a GPS device in it along with an engine "Kill switch" and door locking switch, both of which can be operated by a signal from a satellite in space., thus disabling your vehicle and keeping you trapped inside until police or government agents can get to you.

Every telephone call you make or receive, every two way radio conversation you have, every email you send or receive, every entry you make to a blog or website is monitored, key stroke by key stroke. Even private conversations you have within your home or place of business can be monitored. The government has the ability to download everything you have on your home computer WITHOUT even having to enter your house. All of your television watching habits are monitored. The government knows every video or DVD you have ever rented and they know every book, tape, VHS, DVD that you have ever checked out of a library.

Then, as if all this weren't bad enough, even the business world has you under surveillance. When ever you make a purchase on line or at a store, and you pay for it by check or credit card, these purchases are tracked. Believe it or not, but banks, stores and law enforcement agencies can put together a whole dossier on your life, just by using the information gleaned from your cancelled checks, credit card purchasing history, by the types of products you buy and the frequency which you purchase certain products. They are even considering placing radio frequency chips into every item you by; clothes, furniture, personal items, etc., so that these items can be tracked from the time they leave the manufacturer, all the way to your home.

All of this surveillance, monitoring, eavesdropping and invasion of privacy will only grow worse. One must bear in mind the Hegelian Dialectic. This theory states that to gain total control over a group of people, a state, nation or the whole world population, it must be done incrementally (slowly) so that the general public is unaware of what is happening to them (much like placing a frog into a kettle of cold water and slowly heating it to a boil, the frog will just sit there unaware that he is about to be cooked). The second part of the Hegelian Dialectic requires that the person or group that wishes to gain control over a populace, must first create the "solution" to a problem (that does not exist), and have this solution in place and ready to go. Then after you have created your solution, you then either cause the situation or problem or allow the situation to occur so that you will then be able to put your solution into action. Let me give you two examples of what I am talking about:

First the government, through the military and law enforcement agencies, creates and develops various surveillance techniques, (i.e., tracking, camera, audio, wiretapping, GPS, etc.). Then you constantly start putting out stories and "leaks" about terrorist activity to start to raise the fear factor in people. Then you allow small scale terrorist acts to occur (the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, and the bombing of the Mura Federal Building in Okalahoma), this gets the people even more frightened. Now you begin to talk about your solution, what is needed to keep us safe. In the meantime, you work behind the scenes to agitate or stir up problems with those who are our enemies, so that they will make attacks on our embassies, military bases, etc. Then as the people begin to clamor for the government to do something, the government increases the pressure on our enemies and then allows them to make a major attack. Voila! The people now DEMAND that the government keeps them safe. The government now enacts their solution by putting into place THE PATRIOT ACT and forming HOMELAND SECURITY, but who is being put under surveillance and being monitored, the enemy? Nope, it is we the people. It is our privacy, our rights, our freedoms that are being curtailed. It is we who are being controlled.

A second area of using the Hegelian Dialectic to gain even more control over the populace, to get the people to willingly allow themselves to be tracked, again using fear, those in charge either deliberately kidnap children for sexual exploitation, or they can use entrapment to lure others into stalking children using the internet or other means. Or they can even allow a large number of children (over a period of time) to be abducted, abused and then murdered, all to instill fear into parents and children, so that when the time is right, they will be eager to have a biometric tracking chip inserted into their bodies, (then if they or their children are ever abducted, they can be located easily). If that don't work to everybody willing to take the chip, you set up a fear of having ones identity stolen. The government along with the banking industry will allow some peoples personal information, such as bank PIN numbers, bank account numbers, credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, etc. to be "stolen" and unauthorized withdrawals made from their accounts. Then the government makes paper money with all kind of "safe guards" claiming that it cannot be counterfeited, but a month or two later they claim that there is millions of dollars in counterfeit money (the new bills) discovered in circulation. Then the banks develop "Smart Cards" with all kinds of biometric info of each customer, (the people rush to get these new cards) but then the banks and government tell the people that these cards are being counterfeited, so what is the obvious solution to these problems?  Do away with all cash and credit cards (smart cards) and go to an all digital cashless system and require each person to have an injectable biometric locator chip placed under their skin. This chip will contain ALL of their personal information; bank account numbers, social security numbers, medical history and insurance numbers, date of birth, driver's license number, everything that pertains to you will be on that chip and it can all be accessed by the various government agencies, stores and banks, just by having you wave your hand over a scanner.

What is truly sad about all of this is that the majority of the population has been so dumbed down, so conditioned to all of this that they will gladly accept it all. And with all of the "feel good", charismatic, holy laughter, being slain in the spirit, visualize it, speak it and claim it health and wealth, new age ecumenical, politically correct, all inclusive crap that has been fed to a spiritually sick population, by their so-called Christian ministers, pastors and priests, people will follow blindly into the apostate One World Religion.

I, and others like me, can only warn you NOT TO TAKE THE CHIP! We can only warn you to get out of the blasphemous houses of sin and corruption that call themselves churches. Seek the TRUTH for yourselves. If it doesn't square with Holy Scripture then it cannot be of God. If you are a member of an Orthodox Church, and you find your Patriarch and Bishops climbing into bed with Rome, then you should run from your Church and hold tight to the TRUTH and teachings as handed down through Holy Tradition by the Church Fathers of the First Seven Ecumenical Councils. We can only warn you and pray that you will be inspired by the Holy Spirit to see the Truth, but like the old saying, we can lead a horse to water, but we cannot make it drink.

God gave you FREE WILL, the TRUTH has been placed before you, but in the end, the choice is yours to make, Jesus Christ and salvation or the Antichrist and eternal damnation.

About:

Apostle1.com, Apostle1.org and Apostle1.net

We are an educational, News-informational and research Web Site dedicated to providing such as befits those who seek things pertinent to the Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith and life.

A few have sent us inquiries as to why we post information and/or articles relating to what might be considered as political and sometimes from other Protestants .  And the reply is much the same as it states on the entry page....  We Are:

A Non-Profit Religious Hosting Service

and

an Educational, News, Informational and Research Web Site dedicated to providing such as befits those who seek things pertinent to the Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith and life for various

Traditional Orthodox Jurisdictions

While the answer and question above is not sufficient for some to understand, we take the view (which we believe is ORTHODOX) that all things pertinent to life and living affects, and has an effect, upon not just our belief (Orthodox), but (for many) the way in which we act in accordance with our belief, our very faith. 

Because this is a highly Protestant Country in which we live, having an effect upon the laws of the land, we should know something of what is on-going and where efforts by those denominations may affect and have a intrinsic effect on our very laws, for such does have an effect upon our daily lives as Orthodox Catholic Christians. 

If one is not cognizant of the real events happening both locally and in the world, although many are removed from the world... one will not know what to expect or what to do, or how one can or cannot act which might betray one's faith and accrue the wrath of civil authorities as laws change.  Yet, we are also reminded that these things must happen and it was for that which there exists many early Christian Martyrs and Saints. 

While we can remove ourselves from the world, we still live in it.  And for the faithful, theirs is a struggle for knowledge and understanding.  All things are pertinent to the Orthodox Catholic Christian Faith which is the very foundation of Christianity.  As such, we can not abandon them and leave them blind to events and happenings. 

What we post as related to those things similar to various articles which might have a political theme or non-Orthodox Catholic Christian content of sorts ... does not mean or imply that we are supportive of, for, or against something articulated in an article, so much as it is NEWS and our faithful should be made aware, for such may be the very thing that will impact their day-to-day life.  It is for them, their free will... to judge the relevancy.

Remember, not all Protestants, especially hard core cultic groups such as "Charismatic" - "Evangelical" "Promise Keepers" "Church of Christ" "Methodism" "Pentecostals" "Jehovah's Witnesses" "Mormons" and other people are not so generous in their viciousness toward anyone and anything that appears "Catholic" whether of the Roman or Orthodox jurisdictions, for they do not know or want to learn that which makes them "different" in their walk and talk as being far from the roots of Christianity. 

Remember, it is the Roman jurisdiction of the Catholic Church which has more outwardly shown that it can be one of the most vicious toward those who are not Roman but are very much "Catholic" - for the sun and moon does not rise and set on the Vatican (Latin or Roman) jurisdiction as to who is or is not "Catholic" for the Roman jurisdiction split (schismed) from the roots of "Catholicism" which is founded in what is termed and called today as "Orthodoxy".

Any good article or piece of information will be considered so long as it is not defamatory or slanderous toward an individual when not based on TRUTH or FACT, or which is altered out of context from its original publishing by recognized sources. All new articles submitted, after viewing and recommendations, are passed to our Editor, our Vladyka, +Joseph Thaddeus, OSB, SSJt., Ph.D.

I prefer a defeat accompanied by humility to a victory accompanied by pride.

    Yes, our Metropolitan Archbishop, +Joseph Thaddeus, SSJt., Ph.D. strongly defends the Seals of the Confessional for such leads to true Repentance in thought, word and deed whereby the penitent is required to make amends, where possible, to seek forgiveness of those harmed by his actions whether real or imagined, and to give his forgiveness to those who have harmed him before taking the Holy Body and Blood in the Eucharist, Jesus the Christ.  The reality of this understanding is bound up in and with the findings for which cause he, himself, had been character assassinated by his detractors who claim the courts prevented him from breaking the Seals of the Confessional which is not the truth at all.... Click here to see what another bishop's findings are...

 

    The workings of Holy Spirit will not be daunted by those who attempt to cause disruption!  It is for these and other reasons that you are urged to read what true repentance and forgiveness means for real "Christians".

 

   "It would be better to have ten (10) true repentant X-felons who ask for and give true forgiveness than it would be to have one (1) non-x-felon or common person whose self-righteousness exceeds even the Pharisees, Sadducees, the gossip mongers, slanderers and un-repentant; for the repentant x-felon understands the true meaning of the Church's purpose as being the spiritual hospital." (siq) +Joseph Thaddeus, OSB, SSJt., Ph.D., Metropolitan Archbishop, Archabbot, Primate

 

Yes... "Prejudice Makes Prisoners of the Hated and the Hater..." (1992-Fr. Alan Stanford)

 

One can ask, "What part of 'Prejudice' and 'hate' do you not understand?  Are you a complacent person?  In light of the saying, examine yourself!  You may be surprised if you are honest with yourself for your soul may convict you before Jesus Christ convicts you in the times to come!

 

"When tested by some trial you should try to find out not why or through whom it came, but only how to endure it gratefully, without distress or rancor."


St. Mark the Ascetic.


"
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit." Psalms 32:1-2
