True Biblical Patriotism
Aug 29, 2018
On May 10, 2018 it was reported that Iraqi and US forces had captured five of the ISIS leaders in Syria and Turkey.
BAGHDAD — Iraq has arrested five senior members of the Islamic State, including a top aide to the militant group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in an operation that involved U.S. and Turkish intelligence support, authorities here said.
The capture of the men, two Syrians and three Iraqis, represents a breakthrough in the hunt for Baghdadi, experts said Thursday, and underscores the deep security cooperation within the American-led coalition against the Islamic State despite political tensions roiling the region.
One of the men, Ismail al-Ithawi, who goes by the alias Abu Zaid al-Iraqi, is considered part of Baghdadi’s inner circle and has responsibilities for financial, religious and security portfolios across the group’s territory in Iraq and Syria, said Hisham al-Hashimi, an expert on the Islamic State who advises the Iraqi government….
Early Thursday, President Trump touted the detentions in a tweet, saying: “Five Most Wanted leaders of ISIS just captured!”
The top leader, al-Baghdadi was not among them, although one of his top aides was captured. In fact, it appears that all of McCain’s buddies escaped. Perhaps their Deep State sponsors in the intelligence community have tipped them off. It would probably be a disaster for the Deep State if they were captured alive.
Q told us last April 8th that Senator McCain visited these ISIS leaders, escorted by Eric Prince’s Blackwater contractors. He says that Eric Prince was a “double agent,” working for the CIA, but gathering information for future use against the Deep State. They even brought a photographer to take pictures of the occasion, though most of the contractors, of course, were not photographed.
Here you can see some of the contractors in the background.
Q also has told us that because McCain took his cell phone with him, everything that was said was recorded by the NSA. A person does not have to be talking into a cell phone for it to be recorded. “We have it all,” says Q, and “pictures leaked for this very moment.”
The dispute, of course, is whether or not McCain’s patriotism to the Deep State should be considered to be “serving his country” or “treason.” That really depends on whether the Deep State really represents America or if it is a foreign conqueror known in Scripture as Babylon.
Then, of course, there is the deeper biblical implications of this, since God took credit for putting us under Babylon as a matter of divine judgment. In the end, Jeremiah told the captives in Babylon to submit to Nebuchadnezzar (Jeremiah 27:12). But does this include supporting the Deep State when they organize and finance terrorist organizations for the purpose of subduing governments and people?
Personally, I know I would never be so “patriotic” to Babylon that I would betray the true King whose right to rule I fully support.
My primary patriotism is to the Kingdom of God and to King Jesus, who is the rightful King of Kings and the Heir of the whole earth. Our founders drafted the Declaration of Independence, proclaiming that governments rule under the authority of the Creator. I can fully support that form of government. I have problems with Babylon’s government which has dethroned the King and has usurped powers that do not belong to them.
I recognize, of course, that God has done this to us on account of our national sins in previous centuries. So I do not mind submitting to the unjust king of Babylon, as long as he does not tell me to worship idols or to violate the law of God.
The good news is that the great tribulation technically ended at the feast of Tabernacles in October of 2017 after a period of “seven times.” We are now watching the collapse of Babylon, as God moves to set us free and to “set up a Kingdom which will never be destroyed” (Daniel 2:44). While we see a lot of turmoil in America and around the world, we know that God is shaking the heavens and the earth so that only those things which are of His Kingdom will remain standing (Hebrews 12:26, 27).
Unfortunately, much of the church has been deceived into thinking that this tribulation is yet to occur. When they look at the turmoil today, they conclude that the tribulation is soon to come. So they do not have the same hope that we do. Their hope is to escape the tribulation in a “rapture,” whereas our hope is to see the fall of Babylon and to fulfill the feast of Tabernacles.
See my book, The Rapture in the Light of Tabernacles. What the church calls “the rapture” is actually the fulfillment of Tabernacles. Without understanding the prophetic feast days, it is difficult for them to understand the events surrounding the second coming of Christ. The rapture doctrine was defined by those who had no revelation of Tabernacles.
Tabernacles began to be revealed more fully in the Latter Rain movement (1948-1952), though the revelation was hindered somewhat by their lack of understanding of the law as a whole. Further, by not understanding The Struggle for the Birthright, they misunderstood the purpose of the Israeli state. Nonetheless, I believe we now have a greater understanding of Scripture, simply because we took the time to study the law without being hindered by the Old Covenant veil (2 Corinthians 3:14, 15).
Since 2014 I have been talking about the fall of Babylon and the transfer of authority to the saints of the Most High (Daniel 7:27 KJV). At the Tabernacles conference in 2014 I projected that this transfer of authority would be fully brought into the world three years later (2017). That is what has happened, although receiving authority is only the first step toward enforcement.
Even Joshua received authority over Canaan before enforcing it in the next five years.
The Burning Man prayer campaign is part of the enforcement of divine authority in the conquest of Babylon, so that the heirs may receive their inheritance. It is not clear how long this will take. It took Joshua five years of war, and then the land was divided up among the tribes in the 7th year, their first Sabbath year in the land.
But that was just the type and shadow of what we are experiencing today. Israel never did inherit the whole land that had been given to them. Our situation is different, because we are no longer inheriting as a type and shadow. We are being given the real thing. And while it will still take a thousand years to inherit the whole earth, I believe that many nations will come under the rule of Jesus Christ—not by compulsion, but by their own desire to receive the Kingdom blessings.
Meanwhile, we are called to take the lead and to do the work of spiritual warfare necessary to bring about these major changes in world history. It is a worthy calling, and we are confident that we will win, because our time has come.
