Degeneration of the West
The Incremental Fall of the West
It pains me to watch the gradual though now accelerating collapse of our formerly Western Christian civilisation, all its very real and less than flattering faults and blemishes over the centuries notwithstanding. It has been so gradual that virtually nobody has blinked an eyelid. The degeneration is not merely societal, though - it's at work in every individual who cuts him- or herself off from the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) and instead chooses to absorb the ways and psyche of the world, again by gradual increments so as not to offend conscience too much.
From Compiègne and Versailles to Today
It really all began after the collapse of the defeated nations following the First World War in 1918. Indulging in the worst form of Schadenfreude - and this coming supposedly from 'Christian' nations - the degenerate rulers of the victorious French, British and American Allies, imposed humiliating terms at Compiègne and Versailles on the Germans and their Austro-Hungarian allies, virtually another World War. The result of all of this was the sudden and shocking moral degeneration that was to make Berlin, capital of the Weimar Republic, the most decadent and immoral capital of the world. What we have seen happen to the individual in little over a century is laissez-faire  individualism degernate into je-m'en-foutisme , joi de vivre  degenerate into hedonism , and tolerance degenerate into irresponsibility. On a societal level, the result is that indivisualism has degenerated into stagnation and thence into isolationism and finally a neurotic fear of being disturbed. Or to put it another way, the West has been committing suicide in yearly installments.
The Decadence of the Late Weimar Republic
Pleasure in Others' Misery
We are witnessing the Christian virtues, such as sympathy and forgiveness, degenerate into Schadenfreude, the secret (and increasingly not-so-secret) pleasure that human beings take in their fellow creature's misery. We only have to look in the media to see the obvious evil pleasure jihadists take in watching their victims suffer as they are raped, brutally tortured and finally murdered. Though in the West we are still appalled by such behaviour, the seeds of Schadenfreude are definitely planted in our society. I think of the Social Services in Sweden, Norway, Britain, Germany, the USA and elsewhere where so many of their functionaries take an obvious pleasure in kidnapping children and destroying innocent families for filthy lucre.
Where the Buck Belongs
Why am I saying all of this today? Because after the collapse this process of moral degeneration will accelerate at a horrifying rate. Not in everyone, obviously, for trial and tribulation also brings out the best in some, especially in those for whom striving for righteous is a moral imperative. The reason Judgment is coming now is that both a quanitative as well as a qualitative line has been crossed that forces Grace to retire and Judgment to take her place. The wicked now outnumber the righteous and the level of wickedness is just getting worse. Our leaders, whom we love to villify and blame for our woes, are simply symptoms of the national condition. The people have chosen whom they actually deserve to rule them. So we can get angry with Obama, Clinton, Merkel or whoever is our scapegoat but the buck falls squarely at the feet of the individual citizen for his pursuit of evil or his failure to mobilise to do anything about it.
Dumbed Sown and Incapable of Rational Thought
Our national leaders, being for the most part wicked, know how to exploit the feelings of envy and bitterness with virtuosity. They know how to tap our basest instincts through the instruments of behavioural psychology. They have cultivated this very real base sense belonging to the flesh that if one's own house has been destroyed by fire then our neighbour's should be too. People have, as a result, lost rational objectivity. They don't know why they believe what they do but they cling onto it stubbornly anyway. Just go to any political rally of the Left or the Neo-Con Right and you will see what I mean. Our leaders know that the emotional sphere of the soul is stronger than the rational and they play on that for all it is worth. People don't reall6 think anymore because they can't. The educational system, and that which passes as 'entertainment', has dumbed them down so much that they follow whatever passionate appeal best serves their carnal appetite for the moment.
The Inevitability of Judgment
All of this is immensely depressing because Judgment has to come now. It just can't be avoided. And at the end of it, as I have warned you before, half of humanity will perish.
The West Has Lost Its Moral Febre
As some of you know, I have been studying the collapse of the French Third Republic. I felt very strongly led to do so and have come to understand that what caused France to unravel in 1940 is essentially the same as is about to happen to all of the West now. It has really pressed heavily on my heart seeing how society literally fell apart following the successful invasion by the Wehrmacht. France had all the material resources to resist and even win but was so morally degenerate that it lacked the will to do so. The West is about to face another invader and will lack the moral strength, in spite of superior weaponry, to stop the onslaught.
From Liberty to Oppression
For many of you the thought that your country might be defeated and occupied is absurd, especially if it never has been defeated or occupied before. We Brits pride ourselves in having enjoyed nearly 1,000 years of independence, since 1066, in fact, when we were invaded by my forefathers, the French-speaking Scandinavian Normans of France. We have repelled every invader, quite an achievement. Like the United States, we have had a bloody civil war, but no invader has crossed our border and established a foothold. This has led, following moral degeneration, to not a little Schadenfreude in both our nations. We have an over-inflated opinion of ourselves. Once we were defenders of liberty but in a matter of just a few short decades we have become the exporters of oppression. And there are many understandably out for revenge.
Britain and American Unions in Jeapordy
My message, consistently, over many years, as I have tried to prepare my readers for what is now about to happen, is the same as that of Jeremiah the navi (prophet): accept your judgment and punishment, for it is Yahweh who is about to bring this on you. Your resistance will not be blessed. Only repentance will bring about the approbation of Heaven and restore independence. And, yes, our countries may well split - our American and British Unions are not set in stone. We may even have civil war again though I pray not. Scotland may well leave the United Kingdom, and the South may well leave the United States again. We shall have to wait and see. If the reasons are purely nationalistic, Yahweh will not have much sympathy. If the reasons are moral and spiritual reformation, you will have the ear of Heaven.
In this time of spiritual prepping, Yahweh is going to parade your issues and weaknesses in dreams or through having a mirror thrown up in front of you by others so that you can make findalemtal choices for moral and spiritual formation. I suspect, though, that we will not be able to spurn grace for much longer, so I urge everyone to get right with Him while you yet may. Then comes the collapse in more ways that you could imagine. When that happens, you will either flourish, experience devastating anguish or perish. Yah'shua (Jesus) calls. Go to Him and make things right. Amen.
