Revelations about how our government operates are continuing to unfold as the Obama administration and Washington, DC in general seem to be falling apart with their bad policies and clandestine deals. From the ruse of Immigration Reform whose purpose is to help further the New World Order’s moves toward a North American Union to the news today of Verizon customers’ records being looked at by the NSA to the revelation that the NSA and FBI are keeping track of all information produced by all customers of about nine Internet companies, the U.S. government seems to be operating on the idea that the U.S. Constitution no longer applies to how we’re supposed to operate.

But hopefully, those who are witnessing all the controversy now realize that when people with socialist leanings run the government, eventually everyone becomes a target. That’s how Hitler operated, the Soviet Union operated, how China operates, etc. When the IRS’ targeting of conservatives and Christian groups came to light, some people who voted for the current administration really weren’t all that concerned. But with the confiscation of the Associated Press records and all the news breaking about Verizon phone records and the government collecting all electronic information from some well-known Internet companies, even liberals are starting to see they can be in this administration’s cross-hairs also.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. This all but proves how accurate the Biblical prophecies are about the one world government, one world religion, lawlessness, and godlessness that it said would be prevalent in the last days before Christ returns. All the more reason for people to stop and see that although government is good when it comes to some things like punishing criminals, it will always be dysfunctional to a certain degree because when you mix power with sinful human nature, it corrupts. That’s why God always stressed throughout the Bible that his ways are to be held as being more important than any earthly government.

Additionally, one cannot believe that even the press, whether conservative or mainstream, is giving us the whole picture. These times we live in show how sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ is still the most important thing Christians can do since God’s changing the hearts of evil men is the only thing that can genuinely help any nation change for the better. We are witnessing a government seeking to decriminalize crime, make the legal illegal, call the spiritually good morally evil, and call the morally or spiritually evil morally good as it tries to undermine the Constitutional foundations of our Constitutional republic. This all reminds me of what I read in Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, who was familiar with how socialism operated since she escaped the Soviet Union. I don’t agree with her philosophy of selfishness, but one of her characters hit the nail on the head when he spoke of the goals of off-track government in her novel:

‘”Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?” said Dr. Ferriss. “We want them to be broken. …We’re after power and we mean it. …There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted–and you create a nation of lawbreakers–and then you cash in on the guilt. Now that’s the system…'” Atlas Shrugged, Part II, chapter 3.
