United Evil and the Right to Kill

Is it just me, or is the presence and power of evil more rampant these days?

Shadowy forces (Deep State) work at a feverish pitch to try and take down a duly elected president (Donald Trump). China monitors the “social credits” of its people and clamps down harshly on people of faith. Migrants attempt to crash our southern border, financed by millions of dollars in leftist funding.

The list is endless due modern technology broadcasting 24/7 before our eyes–worldwide.

I know there’s always been evil in the world since the Fall. But, is it being unleashed in greater proportions in the 21st century, and who might be its largest human purveyor?

United Evil and the Right to Kill

I know that I’m being affected by my current choice of  reading.

Most holiday seasons I use the rainy months of winter to catch up on book lists. I love to read because one must read to lead. That’s especially true in the Information Age.

For the past few weeks I’ve been meditating on the current number one best-selling book in America–Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s Killing the SS: The Hunt for the Worst War Criminals in History. It has opened my eyes to what my parent’s generation fought and died for–purging the world of Nazi evil.

At our Thanksgiving table this month, my aunt extended our knowledge of this period by telling my uncle’s story. He was captured by the Germans during the latter stages of WWII and endured as a POW for nine months.

Extremely ill when finally liberated, he walked out of Germany into France where he finally received medical attention, then was flown home to Cleveland, Ohio for a long hospital stay.

He survived his encounter with Nazi evil and lived a full life. His brother, Dick, was not so fortunate–being shot down and killed in Italy during the final months of the conflict.

I read Killing the SS twiceDid you know:

  • There were over twenty “extermination camps” (some bigger than others) used by the Nazis for their killing fields.
  • If you use the conservative number of 8 million killed (6 million Jews) between 1941-45, that amounts to murdering over 5000 people per day.
  • None of the Nazi leaders/killers seemed to have a conscience or any sense of remorse years after the Holocaust.
  • It wasn’t just men who perpetrated evil. A special women’s camp in Ravensbruck, led and run by young Nazi females, caused the horrific deaths of at least 20,000 women.

After reading Killing the SS, I went back and re-read Killing Patton by the same authors. It deeply delves into the lives of Adolph Hitler, and also Joseph Stalin (who probably caused the deaths of 20 million more people).

It also details the noble leadership of Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt, and, of course, General George Patton. Patton almost single-handily closed out the Western Theater war by the heroism and bravery of his Third Army winning the Battle of the Bulge.

Though never proven, Patton was probably assassinated a few months after the war’s end because he was one of the few leader’s who understood the Soviet threat of evil in the post-World War II world and was committed to stopping it.

After he died, the USSR took over Eastern Europe bringing half of the globe under Soviet/Chinese evil for another forty years (and still in power in Communist China).

Now another more “diplomatic” form of evil is emerging in this century.

The culprit is none other than the United Nations.

Grace Carr, of the Daily Caller, tells us the story:

“The United Nations Human Rights Committee drafted a memo saying that abortion and physician-assisted suicide should be universal human rights.”

“The memo, or ‘general comment’ on the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, calls for abortion to be decriminalized everywhere. Nations and states should ‘not introduce new barriers and should remove existing barriers [to abortion] … including barriers caused as a result of the exercise of conscientious objection by individual medical providers,’ it said, Crux Now reported Thursday.”

So killing your baby is a universal right and no doctor can object.

Carr continues: “Young people should have access to contraception as well as guaranteed access to post-abortion health care ‘in all circumstances, and on a confidential basis,’ the draft also said, Crux reported. Stigma against abortion should also be discouraged, the draft noted.”

So, the U.N. wants give out free condoms, place no restrictions on abortion, and keep parents in the dark about their kid’s right to kill their unborn babies.

Carr goes on:

“The U.N. Human Rights Committee successfully ordered the Irish government to pay Siobhan Whelan roughly $34,000 and provide her with psychological treatment in November 2017 to compensate for Whelan’s travel expenses in order to obtain an abortion. Whelan had traveled from Ireland, where abortion was illegal at the time, to the U.K. for the procedure. Whelan was the second woman compensated post-abortion on orders from the U.N.”

The U.N. is now punishing nations for restricting abortions.

But there’s some kickback.

“A Harvard professor and human rights in international law specialist, Mary Ann Glendon, pushed back against the draft’s proposals. ‘First of all, the U.N. Human Rights Committee has no power to create human rights,’ said Glendon, according to Crux.

“The committee’s assertion that abortion is a ‘fundamental human right, and its preposterous claim that abortion rights are derived from the right to life … show how susceptible U.N. bodies are to lobbying by interest groups that would like to see their agenda items recognized as universal rights,’ Glendon added.”

Yes, the right to life comes from God and can’t be twisted by bureaucrats.

Then there is the other area of the “right to kill”–euthanasia. The United Nations wants it universally adopted as well.

Carr reports:

“The drafted copy also addressed physician-assisted suicide, directing medical professionals to ‘facilitate the termination of life of afflicted adults, such as those who are terminally ill, who experience severe physical or mental pain and suffering, and who wish to die with dignity.'”

“The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) announced in early October that it no longer opposes physician-assisted suicide, instead taking a neutral position on the matter. The Massachusetts Medical Society (MMS) also voted to repeal its policy regarding assisted suicide and euthanasia in December, moving from its well-established opposition to ‘neutral engagement’ on the practice.”

“California, Colorado, Oregon, Vermont, Hawaii, Montana, and Washington permit physician-assisted suicide.”

I’m ashamed to live in one of those states. And speaking of shame, what’s with the AAFP and MMS going neutral on adults taking their lives? Didn’t neutrality by various nations prior to World War II lead to the German blood-bath?

I’ve never been a fan of the United Nations. It’s run by socialists and dictator-regimes with the goal of creating a new world order that will not be kind to people of faith–while championing death policies on every front. According to the U.N. there’s a universal right to kill in accord with their secular values. Hitler and Stalin shared that perverted perspective.

Can you imagine the global holocaust those policies would create?

Let’s stop our U.S. funding of the United Nation’s proposed killing machine. Better yet, let’s pull out of the organization and let them go elsewhere.

As I predicted in my 1989 book Leadership for the 21st Century, a time is coming when the world stage will be a battle between “Free Nations” and “Dark Nations.” The first group believes in the God-given right to life. The latter pushes a man-made right of human destruction.

Shame on the U.N. Whatever good they do will be swallowed up by the devil-inspired right to kill (John 8:44).

Let’s resist this new united evil and do all in our power to extend the Kingdom of God and its life-giving truths to all peoples on earth.

    Rick Best,
    You certainly are on board already. And yes, it is a great day and time to be alive.

    You will recall, you accompanied me on top of Mt Rainier on August 11, 2018 when we went together with the “APPEAL TO HEAVEN ” Banner from Peninsula Baptist Church to Blow the Shofar and Rededicate the Mountain of Rainier into the Most High LORD as the Mountain of the LORD in Isaiah 2.

    Recently, when my wife Mary and I visited you at your home you drove us in the company of your beloved wife, Cathy to the Peninsula area close to your home to Blow the Shofar while facing Mt Rainier from a distance. You also took video clips during that time when we jointly made declarations over The State of Washington and the entire 50 States of America as ONE NATION UNDER GOD AND INDIVISIBLE WITH JUSTICE FOR ALL These events were not coincidences, but God’s Divinely ordained Time frames of His involvement in the affairs of men.

    This reminded me of the Good and Merciful God who cares for HIS PEOPLE. It is He that sends ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying:
    Woe to the land of whirring wings, along the rivers of Ethiopia: that sends envoys by sea in papyrus boats over the water. ‘Go, ye swift messengers, to a Nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a Nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled.
    All you people of the World, you who live on the earth, When a Banner is Raised (AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN [paraphrased]) on the Mountains, you will see it, and when the TRUMP ET (SHOFAR) sounds, you will hear it.
    For so the LORD said unto me (Isaiah 18:1-3).

    As a former YWAM you will agree with me that in order for Revival to come we need to be people of ACTION – “Doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving our own selves” (James 1:22).
    Jesus Christ our role model, made it clear to His disciples that their words are the heart center of life. Thus, our spiritual fruit is like our Master, who said to Philip (one of His disciples) “Verily, verily, I say unto you; He that BELIEVES on Me, the works that I do he shall do also; and GREATER WORKS than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father.” (John 14:12).
    He attested to His words and said; “The disciple is not above his master; but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.” (Luke 6:40). So let us be doers of what comes from our hearts “for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speak” (Luke 6:45),
    we the people of God who are called by His Name, need treasure what comes out of our hearts. We need to be those who call upon the name of our LORD Jesus Christ, with purpose and conviction.
    He said “Why do yo call me LORD, LORD and do not do what I say? I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and PUTS THEM INTO PRACTICE.
    He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.” (Luke 6:46-48).
    I believe the Constitution of the United States of America was dug down deep by its founding fathers who laid the FOUNDATION ROCK, based on the WORD OF GOD.
    In the present state of the once Shining Star, of Fifty Stars, is there New Hope for America’s BEST? You bet.
    I conclude my Prayer for the United States of America in the words of ISAIAH with paraphrase.
    Woe to you, O destroyer; you who have not been destroyed! Woe to you, O traitor, you who have not been betrayed!
    When you stop destroying you will be destroyed! When you stop betraying, you will be betrayed.
    O LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you.
    Be our strength every morning, Our Salvation in time of distress. At the thunder of your voice (The Shofar), the people’s flee; when you rise up, the NATIONS SCATTER (Let God Arise, His Enemies be Scattered – Psalm 68:1).
    Your plunder, O NATIONS (United for Evil and the Right to Kill) is harvested as by young locusts; like a swarm of locusts men pounce on it.
    The LORD is exalted, for He DWELLS ON HIGH; He will fill Zion with JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS.
    He will be the SURE FOUNDATION for your Times, a Rich Store of Salvation and Wisdom and Knowledge; THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE KEY TO THIS TREASURE (Isaiah 33:1-6).
    Here then is the LORD’S counsel:
    The oppressor will come to an end, and destruction will cease; the aggressor will vanish from the land.
    In Love a Throne will be established; in Faithfulness a man will sit on it – one from the house of David – one who in JUDGING SEEKS JUSTICE AND SPEAKS THE CAUSE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.” (ISAIAH 16:4-5).

    RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS A NATION, BUT SIN IS A DISGRACE TO ANY PEOPLE. (PROVERBS 14:34).

    Ron Boehme,
    Today, Thursday 29th November 2018, precisely marks 5years and 3months since I left my beloved wife, children, parents, ministry (church), village & country in my motherland Africa, for an assignment I was never sure how long it would take me to undertake.

    The Mission was two fold; the one was to Pray, Repent, Fast and Intercede for the entire 50 states of United States of America to return to her Godly Judeo – Christian values that were the cornerstone of this Great country and the other was to bring back Prayer to the FAMILY PRAYER ALTAR, because, SO GOES THE FAMILY, SO GOES THE CHURCH, AND SO GOES THE CHURCH SO GOES THE NATION.

    The state of America today is critical. America NEEDS A MIRACLE TODAY…
    The main reason is because America has abandoned her First love and displaced God, His Commandments, and His authority found in His Written Word, the BIBLE and in His Power found in PRAYER, HUMILITY, SEEKING THE TRUE GOD AND TURNING FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS (2 CHRONICLES 7:14).

    It is on record how this great nation in the past sent out great men and women of God such as TL Osborn, Billy Graham, Kathryn Koolman (to name just a few) as Missionaries in different Nations of the world, to fight the demonic oppressions against God’s people and leaders and setting them free from bondages.

    Things are not the same again for America because she has now adopted a culture of secular humanism, with very little or no importance and reference to her founding Fathers including: George Washington, who after the Battle of Monongahela, wrote from Fort Cumberland to his younger brother, John Augustine Washington, July 18, 1755: “But by the All-powerful Dispensations of Providence, I have been protected beyond all human probability or expectation; for I had four bullets through my coat, and the two horses shot under me, yet escaped unhurt, although death was leveling my companions on every side of me!

    Ben Franklin who declared: “In the beginning of the Contest with Great Britain…we had DAILY PRAYER in this room for DIVINE PROTECTION.. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending Providence in our favor.”

    Abraham Lincoln, who in 1863 proclaimed a Day of Fasting for April 30. What freak accident happened two days later which changed the course of the Civil War?

    In September 7, 1774, during the Battle of Lexington & Concord, the Continental Congress met in Philadelphia and John Adams wrote:
    When Congress met, Mr Cushing made a motion that should be OPENED WITH PRAYER. It was opposed by Mr. Jay of New York and Mr. Rutlidge of South Carolina because we were so divided in RELIGIOUS SENTIMENTS, some Episcopalians, some Quakers, some Anabaptists, some Presbyterians, and some Congregationalists….Mr. Samuel Adams arose and said that he was no bigot, and could hear a PRAYER from ANY GENTLEMAN OF PIETY AND VIRTUE, WHO WAS AT THE SAME TIME A FRIEND TO HIS COUNTRY…
    Next morning Rev. Mr. Duche’ ….read SEVERAL PRAYERS…and…the 35th Psalm…I never saw a greater effect upon an audience. It seemed as if heaven had ordained that Psalm to be read on that morning. After this, Mr. Duche’, unexpectedly to everybody, struck out into an EXTEMPORARY PRAYER, which filled the bosom of every man present. I must confess, I never heard a BETTER PRAYER.
    Six months after the Continental Congress first met was the Battle of Lexington and Concord. On April 15, 1775, the Massachusetts Provincial Congress, led by John Hancock, declared:
    In circumstances dark as these, it becomes us, as men and Christians to reflect that, whilst every prudent measure should be taken to ward off the impending judgments….the 11th of May next be set apart as a Day of Public Humiliation, Fasting and PRAYER…to confess their sins….to implore FORGIVENESS OF ALL OUR TRANSGRESSION.

    My PRAYER and Humble Plea is for President Donald John Trump to Declare a Day of National Prayer and Humiliation – for this great nation. AWAKE AMERICA, there is HOPE FOR AMERICA, HOWEVER DISMAL THE MEDIA IS DEPICTING HER CONDITION.

    This weekend (Thursday – Saturday), during the first Term of President Trump’s Administration, my Team of Washington State Prayer and Intercession Team is Fasting, Repenting, Seeking the Face of the LORD and Praying for this nation which was divided during the Presidential elections in 2016 and is more polarized after the recent Mid-Term elections. The scriptural reference is Hosea 6:1-3 & Jeremiah 26:2-3.

    The Church of Jesus Christ is without doubt complacent, asleep or worse, dead and needs to Wake up from sleep (And that, knowing the TIME, that it is high time to AWAKE out of sleep; for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand; let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.” Romans 13:11-12).

    We Pray that the Church of Jesus Christ will detach herself from complacency or Lukewarmness (I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So because you are Lukewarm- neither hot nor cold- I am about to spit you out of my mouth Rev. 3:15-16) and REPENT individually and/or corporately for the silence or complacency she has been engulfed in while the enemy of the cross permeated every fabric of the other six mountains of influence namely: FAMILY, EDUCATION, MEDIA, CELEBRATION, BUSINESS & GOVERMENT.

    Many times our heavenly Father never gives us the full details of the engagement we are to undertake, but He sure Prepares us to Battle and reminds us that the Battle is not ours, but His.

    Starting today, Thursday November 29 through Saturday December 1, 2018 our Washington State of Team of PRAYER WARRIORS joined with our Intercessors across Africa, are FASTING, REPENTING & INTERCEDING for America and Nations of the world, against the United Nations plans on Abortion, Euthanasia and interference to the worship of the True God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
    We are Praying for Restoration of Biblical Holiness and Awakening of God’s Spirit over the demise of the FAMILIES, Economic decline, National Security both within each of the 50 States of America and all Nations of the world.

    We are Praying for the Millions of dollars from the Tax Payers in America that are being injected in plans such as Planned parenthood, AAFP & MMS, that are killing babies (Abortion) and the Seniors (Euthanasia) through United Evil and Right to Kill, and supported by the United Nations agency, to be deviated to:
    Sinking boreholes and support Agricultural efforts to prevent improve food security and avoid deaths through hunger, disease and malnutrition in developing nations.

    To provide Education to Poor Families who are overburdened by Educating their children while tackling the silent but crippling killer disease Jiggers and HIV/Aids.

    There has never been a more critical time for God’s people to WAKE UP than now. Yes, it’s time for BELIEVERS TO ARISE AND SHINE AS THE LIGHT OF JESUS CHRIST INTO EVERY DARK AREA.

    Finally, It is TIME TO REPENT AND PURSUE AFTER HOLINESS (HEBREWS 12:14). That is the KEY TO THE REVIVAL WE ARE ALL LOOKING FORWARD TO. THERE IS A PRICE TAG FOR THIS AWAKENING AND EVERYONE CAN PAY FOR IT. JUST SHOW UP AND BE COUNTED.
    In His Service,
    B. John
    Gig Harbor WA.

    The quest of world evangelization, the return of Christ, and the reality of His eternal Kingdom far outweigh the sin and evil being fought in every generation. His hope is always my final focus.

    I just wanted to point out the satanic death strategy emerging in our time to take us to prayer and renew God’s people to action.

    I’d love to be in that room with you! Let’s keep praying and looking up.

    Great Word Ron. I keep pondering our current culture, the increased divide and aggressive violence, the accelerated forces of evil, and . . . the current state of “The Church”. However . . . I did hear somewhere . . . that (true) believers actually carry the very power and authority of God!

    Sadly . . I see some of the same confusion and deception within the Western Church. Indeed . . . wondering and pondering (again) what might happen if “The Church” came into agreement with God’s heart and His ways, would submit ourselves to Him (in a bold, unified and intentional way), and seek His ways, plans and strategies for ourselves, our children, our culture, and HIS CHURCH?

    Just wondering . . . ?

    What I also see, is that we are not in a very good posture or place (in the Western Church) to receive either His Power …or Direction . . .

    BUT . . . I do still hold a hope and passion that the Lord will open the gates of heaven …for those that seek him . . . .and gives us a few keys and open a few doors for a move of His Spirit.

    Would love to be one of those people . . and just be in the same room when it happens !

    I do know that He does hold The Keys, and . . . He lifts up people, kings and nations for His purposes.

    AND I also know . . . it is a great day and time to be alive !

    Rick Best
