Movement of Hate Nominated For What?
BLM activists harassed diners seated on the patio of a Mexican restaurant and allegedly demanded they raise their fists. Other activists from the movement also surrounded Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and several women for several minutes on the streets of Washington, DC, as they attempted to leave a Republican National Convention event at the White House.
Last September, released data from Princeton University showed that riots associated with the Black Lives Matter movement took place in 48 out of the 50 largest cities in the United States.
The very idea of a group like Black Lives Matter whose methods are so violent and anarchist being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize should be a wake up call to every believer as to where we are today at the end of the church-age. And it should be repugnant to every human with a brain or a conscience.
The riots BLM caused for 6 months last year resulted in a dozen dead and over $2 billion in arson and damages, making it the most costly riots in the history of America. Now someone wants to give these domestic terrorists a peace prize??
“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that Antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” 1 John 2:18
I have always stood with the plight of black people here in America, and have done my best my entire life to stand against racism in all its many forms. I find the idea of ‘white supremacy’ to be abhorrent, just as I find the idea of black supremacy to be equally disgusting. Mob rule, for whatever the reason, is always an ugly thing and it always begets violence. Once you sanction violence as a means to an end, you have lost the battle.
The Black Lives Matter Movement, a Communist organization founded on Marxism, is a disgusting proposition, and is antithetical to freedom and to a free people. I stand against racism and always will, and I’ve stood against the deception and gestapo tactics of Black Lives Matter from the first day they showed up.
Black Lives Matter Nobel Peace Prize??
FROM BREITBART NEWS: The nomination was made by Petter Eide, a member of Norway’s parliament who considered the effort to be “a very important worldwide movement to fight racial injustice,” and brushed off questions regarding violent protests in the movement’s name. “Studies have shown that most of the demonstrations organized by Black Lives Matter have been peaceful,” Eide said. “Of course there have been incidents, but most of them have been caused by the activities of either the police or counter-protestors.”
Yikes, this guy Eide has surely drunk the Kool-aid and is repeating the lie and narrative that evil is good and good is evil. Welcome to the end times!
Last September, demonic BLM rioters accosted and threatened a woman screaming, “Are You A Christian.” And in Charlotte, NC you may remember I reported the disturbing story of BLM chanting in the streets “F… Your Jesus!”
We should not forget the bigger picture here that Satan is using BLM as a tool to widen the division in America and that, in the providence of God, our unhinged disunity is another plank in the weakening of America toward its ultimate downfall in the last days.
Since this dangerous movement, backed by Satan, held destructive riots in 48 out of the 50 largest cities in the United States, let’s not forget the real facts when some liberal kook from Norway makes such a bazaar nomination.
The Norway-based Nobel Committee is expected to choose the winners of the award in November. READ MORE
Everywhere he went while campaigning last year we found Joe Biden bowing down in the streets in a disgusting show of favor and acceptance of the lawlessness and extremism of BLM. We have a president in the Whitehouse who favors anarchism!

He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a degree in Mathematics, along with a minor in Computer Science. He has worked in the Information Technology field as a Computer Quality Assurance Analyst for more than 20 years.
Brian Thomas: As a Christian black man living in America, I am very disturbed by what I am seeing and hearing in our nation. It seems that every direction you turn, there are images and narratives about blacks facing injustice at the hands of whites. I want to state upfront that I do not buy into the broad-brush depiction that blacks are being targeted by whites. More on that in a moment.
The End-Time Sign of Disunity
In Matthew 24:3, the disciples went to Jesus on the Mount of Olives and asked Him, “And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” Jesus responded with a thorough outline of the “signs of the times.” One of the signs He mentioned was that nation will rise against nation (Matthew 24:7). In the original Greek, this is written ethnos against ethnos which is where we get the word” ethnicity.”
In other words, our Lord said that ethnicity against ethnicity would be a sign of His Second Coming. That is an extremely important fact to make note of as we examine the racial tension in the nation.
Satan has been sowing division since the Garden of Eden where he pitted Adam against Eve. Jesus prayed that our oneness would be an indicator to the world that He had been sent by the Father (John 17:20-23). Thus, division is a work of the enemy whereas unity is the work of the Spirit. As we examine the climate, we must remember this along with the fact that we wrestle against principalities in wicked places, not flesh and blood (Ephesians 6:12).
The End-Time Sign of Lawlessness
Another sign Jesus mentioned that would point to His soon return was that the love of many would grow cold, due to lawlessness (Matthew 24:12). All we have to do is turn on the news, and we can see how cold love has grown due to lawlessness. Many are defying curfews and are rioting and looting. This spirit of lawlessness and anarchy comes directly from the spirit of the antichrist which is detailed in 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12.
What makes it obvious that this is a demonic spirit is to just look at the transgressors’ actions. What does a business owner in New York City have to do with the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis? Absolutely nothing.
But those who have been taken over by the spirit of lawlessness are looting entities that are literally thousands of miles away from the epicenter. They are not truly seeking justice for blacks. They instead are motivated to create chaos and division which will ultimately destroy the nation. Jesus specifically stated that this spirit would be a sign of the end of the age.
The New Buzz Phrase
The buzz phrase that we are bombarded with today is “systemic racism.” The liberal media pushes this narrative by inciting the masses with emotion-provoking headlines. Every time a white police officer shoots a black man, the headlines shout, “WHITE POLICE OFFICER SHOOTS UNARMED BLACK MAN.” They could just as well state, “Police Officer Shoots Unarmed Man.” But they highlight the race because they have the goal of inciting people’s rage. Forget the facts, they just want people to react, so they play the race card.
Anyone in their right mind knows this country at one time had unjust policies towards blacks, beginning with slavery, through Jim Crow, etc. But just because it existed then does not mean it exists now. I am not so naive as to think racism does not exist in any capacity. Certainly, there are racists, just as there are liars, thieves, and coveters. All of these are sins that will continue to exist until Jesus returns to set up His eternal kingdom.
But I do not accept the systemic racism narrative. I was watching the local news with my wife one evening, and the anchors mentioned systemic racism repeatedly. The newscast then cut to press conferences being delivered by local chiefs of police. Of the three largest cities in my area, each police chief was black. I turned to my wife and stated, “How can there be systemic racism against blacks when so many chiefs of police are black?”
Our nation is 13% black and 77% white. When we consider the fact we elected a president who had a black father, along with numerous black chiefs of police, black mayors, etc, how does one come to the conclusion there is systemic racism? The reason is due to believing a lie rather than the truth.
By the way, the progressives ignore the fact that Planned Parenthood was founded by a white racist for the purpose of eradicating blacks. If that is not systemic racism, I do not know what is. But liberals would rather ostracize law enforcement while applauding the killing of the unborn. We are witnessing the depravity of minds referred to in Romans 1:28
The Media Lie
The lie that so many are accepting is that all cops are racists and all whites are racists. It is simply not true. I personally know numerous police officers and whites who are born again followers of Christ, and they are not racists.
But the liberal media is seducing people into believing a lie. It is conditioning the world to accept an even greater lie of the future. That great lie will be that of the Antichrist, who will require that all must worship him. The Bible declares that the one who will possess the Antichrist is the father of lies (John 8:44-45).
What is even more disturbing is the position of many churches. I have seen numerous churches immediately align themselves with Black Lives Matter in the aftermath of the George Floyd killing, even though its platform is in direct contradiction to the Christian faith. The true Church would never align itself with such thinking, but this is another sign of the times — that a great apostasy would occur at the end of the age with many churches falling from the faith.
The Bowing Fad
Scenes are playing out all over the country of people bowing to their knees in the streets, assembly halls, churches, etc. The theme is that they are “taking a knee” to represent solidarity and apology to blacks for systemic racism and the actions of our nation’s forefathers. A video has surfaced of a black man demanding a white woman to kneel and apologize for her “white privilege.”
I have watched footage of a church congregation assembled under an outdoor tent. The pastor, who is white, led the white members who were positioned on one side of the tent to kneel before all the blacks who were standing facing them on the opposite side of the tent
In a separate incident, a police officer was criticized because he refused to kneel to protesters in the streets. He stood while all his comrades kneeled because he declared that he only bows to our Lord. People branded him a racist. It reminds me of Romans 11:4, which tells how the Lord commended those who would not bow their knees before the false god, Baal.
Satan has tried to get mankind to bow the knee before anything but God throughout history. Now they are bowing to an ethnic group. The Bible declares that the only appropriate bowing is to the one true God (Exodus 20:3), and it further states that one day every knee shall bow at the name of Jesus (Philippians 2:10).
Jumping to Conclusions
Whenever there is conflict between a white and a black, why do many assume that it is motivated by racism? I stated immediately upon viewing the George Floyd killing that it was a social injustice, but I did not know if it was a racial injustice.
Declaring it racial injustice would mean I knew for a fact what the officer’s motive was, which I did not. Did the officer shout a racial slur, did he pen a manifesto stating hatred toward blacks, were there social media posts declaring hatred for blacks? I have yet to see any of that presented but everywhere you turn, people are calling him a racist.
Why? It is because people have unforgiveness in their hearts. The devil causes people to run even when no one is after them (Proverbs 28:1). It is called paranoia. Yes, slavery was brutal and Jim Crow was wrong, but there must come a point when we must move past it.
The Necessity of Forgiveness
When one holds on to past transgressions, he becomes a prisoner held captive in his own unforgiveness. How many times must whites apologize for the sins of some, not all, of their forefathers — every time there is a conflict between a white and black? If I have a conflict with my wife, does that mean I have to apologize for every incident where I offended her over the past 14 years? Rehashing all that serves no benefit.
How did Stephen respond when he was stoned to death (Acts 7:54-56)? He asked God to forgive them even as the stones were being hurled that ultimately killed him. And look at our Lord Jesus. While being mocked and crucified, He asked God the Father to forgive His transgressors (Luke 23:34). We must follow the example of Stephen and Jesus if we want to be set free and have true racial reconciliation.
The Apostle John looked into the future and saw a great multitude in heaven composed of every ethnicity from earth (Revelation 7:9). Our Lord is for all people, not just whites, not just blacks, not just “fill in the blank.”
If you want eternal life in the kingdom of God, you must forgive. If you want freedom and peace, you must forgive. If we want Jesus to forgive our sins, we must forgive others. He died for us all. Now, let us embrace one another as brothers and sisters of the human race and display the love of our Lord!
Unity is a work of God, a gift from above. There is a reason Jesus prayed for oneness. May we look to our Lord and stand together against the enemy in the last days of this age.
We are not in a battle of white versus black. It is a battle of good versus evil, it is a battle of light versus dark. Do you recognize the signs of the times?
2020 is the perfect storm that I believe is being engineered by Satan for the purpose of weakening America to break its support of Israel before the start of the Tribulation. I’ll discuss much more about why I say that in our upcoming class on July 14. If you love America, and haven’t yet registered for the class, please do so soon. The movement for Impeachment gave way to COVID and the destruction of our economy which birthed the radical BLM riots to widen the division in our country and to fuel hatred for law enforcement and a new movement is now rising that seeks to obliterate America’s history. Why now? The storm against America happened in just the first 6 months of an election year for the one who gets to control the world’s last remaining super-power! The war on America is real and of great, prophetic significance, and we’re caught in the middle of it.
A Protester attempts to pull down the statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Square near the White House June 22, 2020 in Washington, DC.
Nation-wide protests weeks after George Floyd’s murder turned into a movement to destroy our nation. We’ve seen this coming for a while.
Parading as an attack on racial injustice, the movement quickly turned into obliteration of history. This week that devastation set its eyes on the Christian faith. Less than one week ago, protesters rekindled the call for removing confederate statues. From there, the momentum quickly shifted to anyone whose statue is seen as offensive, who may (or may not) have owned slaves or supported slavery at any time. Never mind that the qualifiers of what constitutes “offensive” is blurred; the momentum of eradicating history is ruled by hatred and emotion, not reason.
Just in the last week, the long list of what’s offensive includes Ulysses S. Grant, Andrew Jackson, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Francis Scott Key and George Washington. Rioters in Portland draped a US flag over a George Washington statue and set it on fire before toppling the statue. Because they’re now eyeing the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial, hundreds of troops from the DC National Guard have been mobilized to protect monuments in the capital.
As leftist demonstrators take aim at statues and monuments that honor former American presidents, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has announced that Mount Rushmore will be protected! Imagine that! She ought to get a medal of honor!
It was inevitable. When you go from a culture that is willing to cancel someone for what they said 10 years ago, why not go for what was said 200 years ago? Everything is subject to the squinted-eye hatred of extremists. Now they’re coming against the written Word and the Living Word saying things like, “All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down – They are a gross form of white supremacy created as tools of oppression and racist propaganda. They should all come down.” — Shaun King (@shaunking) June 22, 2020
In addition, the Jewish community has been increasingly under attack as protesters also toppled a memorial to Holocaust survivors in a cemetery in California. COVID-19 measures issued by governors banned Christians from congregating in churches. Just weeks later, those same governors had no issue with city-wide protests that brought thousands together. We’re now at the intersection of faith and history with the desire for one side to eradicate the past and the desire for Christians to uphold the Constitution and abide by the Judeo-Christian principles that God has graciously given us.
Believers… all of us… need to cry out to the Lord in earnest that He would heal our land and rescue our country from anarchy that God’s name will be glorified for our children and grandchildren until Jesus returns! If it feels like there is no stability in this movement and the monstrosity it has become, it’s because there isn’t any stability. If it feels like the goal posts keep shifting, it’s because they have. This is how Satan operates as the master of chaos and confusion using the movement of the mob that hates the Bible and righteousness and biblical Christianity. The riots and emotions need to be under control ASAP because a broader sinister movement is hijacking the protests. When they get full control, they WILL burn it ALL, even good intentions. — Shireen Qudosi (@ShireenQudosi) June 3, 2020 Whether they come for statues today or believers tomorrow, the goal of the movement is to Takedown America and to eradicate our Christian roots and rewrite the narrative by obliterating any other narrative. The goal isn’t just to level racial injustice; it’s to level America
