To many, especially to the Atlanta Police union, and to me, it appears that Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard was attempting to appease the mob now ruling Atlanta and Fulton County. His 11-count charge, including felony murder, against an Atlanta police officer last week appears to be totally politically motivated in his effort to be reelected Fulton County District Attorney.

Appeasing the mob leads only to more law breakdown and utter chaos as was clearly shown in several major American cities in recent weeks and fully demonstrated in Minneapolis and Seattle where mob rule took over after the burning and looting of local businesses. And more disturbing is what we see coming as police offices begin to “blue out,” or leave their stations as was reported late last week when officers in several police precincts in Fulton County walked out and/or refused to answer calls for help following the arrest of their fellow officer, fearful the same charges could ruin their lives, and families, if they found themselves in the same position as their fellow officer that Howard charged. Even a blind person can see where this will lead to – anarchy.

This “blue out” will not be confined to Atlanta as the police are being demonized across all of America today. And when it spreads to other cities in America, especially in America’s larger cities, anarchy will set in and the freedoms we Americans have enjoyed since 1789 will begin to fade away. The freedom to gather and worship one’s own God came under attack during the past several months as authoritarians shut down large gatherings, with the greater emphasis being on religious gatherings.

How did today’s chaos come about? Many people have their own idea. My theory may be unique because it begins with the reading of chapter 12 of John’s Revelations. Verse seven and eight of this chapter reads: “And there was a war in heaven: Michael and angels fought against the dragon (Satan), and the dragon (Satan) fought and his angels, 8. And prevailed not; neither was there place found any more in heaven (for Satan or his angels).” “Verse four reads: “And the tail drew the third part of heaven and did cast them to the earth…”

However, before John recorded his Revelations the Lord had spoken these words to Moses: “… That Satan, whom those has commanded in the name of mine Only Begotten, is the same which was from the beginning, and he came before me, saying – Behold, here am I, send me, I will be thy son, and I will redeem all mankind, that not one soul shall be lost, and surely I will do it; wherefore give me thine honor, But, behold, my Beloved Son, which was my Beloved and Chosen from the beginning, said unto me – Father, thy will be done, and the glory be thine forever.”

The Lord continued, speaking also these words to Moses: “Wherefore, because that Satan rebelled against me, and sought to destroy the agency of man, which I the Lord God, had given him, and also, that I should give him my own power; by the power of my Only Begotten, I caused that he should be cast down; and he became Satan, yea, even the devil, the father of all lies, to deceive and to blind men, and to lead them captive at his will, even as many as would not hearken unto my voice, …”

Thus, here we have the two root causes of what is happening in America today. The first root cause is the battle for power to control the destiny of mankind by destroying the Constitution to safeguard the freedoms America’s founders restored to the world via the Constitution. And the second cause is to destroy the agency of mankind, the greatest gift God has given mankind, the gift to choose between good and evil. And this battle between good and evil is in full swing right now here in America, to destroy the Constitution and take over the government much as Lenin did when he instituted communism in Russia 100 years ago.

What we see in America today is the bare knuckles battle for the power to destroy mankind’s agency. There is no in between in this battle. You are either for freedom or slavery and it is going to be the winner take all battle. What side are you going to fight for – freedom or slavery? I’m going to fight for freedom.
