Cross survives Notre Dame fire ala Steel Cross on 9/11, 2001…

[And] Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. ~ Isaiah 6: 8-10

And also I heard the voice of the Lord …

Concomitant with the sudden and confoundingly spontaneous combustion of the prized French Parisian Cathedral of Notre Dame, it beggars belief that any true scholar studying the history of ‘Christianity’ wouldn’t in any uncertain manner, admit that the slow unwinding and dwindling of Christianity was predicted long before it became the dominant religion in the world.

According to prophecy, Satan will have his bloody, evil day, humanism will reap its glorious ‘reward’, and Christ will return triumphantly to Earth to put his stamp upon Satan’s defeat. Which, according to the Scriptures, is exactly what was meant to happen and fully understood by believers.

Therefore yours truly for one, won’t be betting against it. Rather, ‘and also I heard the voice of the Lord’…

Throughout recorded history (at least the history I was taught as a youngster in the one-time scholarly fashion of the English-style educational system) Europe and other continents have blatantly used Christianity as more of a promotional tool towards the attainment of conquistadorial power possessed of marauding invaders, as opposed to its being framed as the only promised path to salvation. When Europeans (and for that matter all global tribalists) begin to shake themselves free from the tribal animus powered by the same pre-Christian pagan gods of war that existed long before Jesus came to earth, then perhaps we will have become truly civilized.

In a wonderful piece on the topic, Dennis Prager (linked down below) provides this little gem of history:

Even without tens of millions of Muslims, post-Christian Europe has not produced a pretty picture. This was predicted in 1834, 100 years before Hitler’s rise, by the great German poet Heinrich Heine, a secular Jew (who later converted to Protestantism, “the ticket of admission into European culture”):

“Christianity — and that is its greatest merit — has somewhat mitigated that brutal German love of war, but it could not destroy it. Should that subduing talisman, the cross, be shattered, the frenzied madness of the ancient warriors, that insane Berserk rage of which Nordic bards have spoken and sung so often, will once more burst into flame. This talisman (the cross) is fragile, and the day will come when it will collapse miserably. Then … a play will be performed in Germany which will make the French Revolution look like an innocent idyll.” [end]

Indeed, looking back across the plains of history, Kings, Queens, Monarchs and others used Christianity to secure their status as divinely appointed rulers, but it was never a comfortable fit. Christianity, like Judaism, is not easy to properly follow, and the nobles were generally abysmal adherents. It seems that Christianity has the habit of making moral demands that are impassable impediments to unlimited power. As Jesus proclaimed, one cannot serve two masters.

Marxism and Islam, on the other hand, are perfectly suited to those who worship power. They have only one master: evil.

Backing up a little bit, yours truly hadn’t even heard of Heinrich Heine, but I remain dumbfounded by his prescient prediction of how Germany would go in war, once the restraining belief of the Biblical God was removed.

Incredible foresight.

Fast-forward to the present and the merits (or lack thereof) of the torching of the Notre Dame cathedral during a suspicious Easter week. Certainly one has to wonder if it wouldn’t be a similar ‘shame’ if the Al Aqsa mosque just ‘upped and happened’ to burn to the ground similar in nature to what engulfed the French Parisian masterpiece. Spontaneous combustion where is thy sting? [sarc]

875 Muslim attacks on Christian churches throughout France during calendar year 2018 is a number to behold. Suspiciously so.

Yet we are seriously encouraged to take Macron’s word that Notre Dame just ‘happened’ to catch on fire, as opposed to the Cathedral’s former architect and general inspector, Benjamin Mouton, who served as Chief Architect of Historic Monuments in France and oversaw restoration work of Notre Dame until 2013. ‘It is highly unlikely an electrical short circuit took place’, Mouton intoned, and that it would ‘take an extraordinary effort to ignite the ancient oak of the cathedral’.

As Prager closes it out: ‘The left’s belief that secular reason can replace God and the Bible turns out to be completely wrong. The alleged citadels of secular reason – the universities – are the most irrational and morally confused institutions in the West’. [end]

Christian teachings are antithetical to greed, hence the perpetual political animosity toward a religion that openly condemns greedy rulers.

But God is sovereign.

World War I took the Holy Land from the Turks, and the aftermath of WW II saw the greatest fulfillment of Biblical prophecy ever in our time – the return of the Jews to Israel, the nation born in a day with a restored language and its own banner.

God fulfilling His promises. Towards which we believers ought to turn our full attention.

‘And also I heard the voice of the Lord’.

Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof. ~ Isaiah 6: 11-13
