Is the “Rapture” A Zionist Invention? A Conversation with Chuck Baldwin

LISTEN HERE

Dr. Chuck Baldwin is the pastor of Liberty Fellowship in Kalispell, Montana. His sermons and columns are seen and read around the world at ChuckBaldwinLive. I spoke with him in May 2020 regarding the “Covid Psyop” and he returns to discuss the Scofield Bible and its influence on evangelicalism, particularly in reference to the “rapture” and other Christian Zionist doctrines. He believes that it is because of Christian Zionism that the vast majority of evangelicals cannot see this Covid Psyop for what it is.

Gaslighting
August 15, 2021

I would like to talk about gaslighting. Only fairly recently did I learn the term. I was talking to clergy friends maybe two and half years ago now. We would talk candidly about our experiences as pastors. I was talking about how I was made to feel that I was doing a crappy job in church, that I was aware of whispering behind my back that I wasn’t doing what I was supposed to do and so forth. My clergy friend simply said, “Gaslighting.” He explained that is when a group or an individual make you feel crazy or unworthy or bad about yourself. That it is all your fault.

I was grateful that he named something that was true. It happened enough to clergy that there was a name for it and clergy knew it (although I didn’t know the term at the time, I did know the concept).

Since then, I have heard and used the term often. Medical News Today offers this definition:

“Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse where a person or group makes someone question their sanity, perception of reality, or memories. People experiencing gaslighting often feel confused, anxious, and unable to trust themselves.

The term gaslighting derives from the 1938 play and 1944 film Gaslight, in which a husband manipulates his wife into thinking she has a mental illness by dimming their gas-fueled lights and telling her she is hallucinating.”

Gaslighting. Is it the same word when applied to a population of people as the victim? Gaslighting may be the best term to describe the collective psychological attack on humanity that we are experiencing now.

Gaslighting. Making someone think they are crazy.

Gaslighting. Making someone think something is their fault when it isn’t.

Gaslighting. With clear intent, making people feel anxious, confused, and unable to trust themselves.

Let’s think of some recent examples. Recent examples that are ongoing.

It is powerful, authoritative entities that do this. Controlling personalities. Narcissistic personalities do this. Gaslighting is also a tactic that is taught to people say Facebook fact-checkers to demean people on the internet. Nearly every day, so-called “fact-checkers” interrupt your conversations correcting what you said. It is unbelievably Owellian that this is happening. They are trying to make you as the author or any reader not believe what you posted, as if their fact-checking is absolute divine truth. You are crazy and wrong if you don’t believe this. Most of this fact-checking is done by bots and algorithms, not even people.

This fact-checking is of course selective. They only fact-check heresies in the narrative that their bosses or programmers do not want heard. For example, say anything about the needle and you get the fact-check that the vaccines are all safe and effective. But not just vaccines. After awhile you learn the narrative that they are pushing and begin to realize that if you are being fact-checked, you are getting close to the target. Assuming you do have your facts right.

Fact-checking is a form of gaslighting. Gaslighting as tactic. You find this in the Facebook comment section of a news channel. Every story has as many people as needed to come out and stop any honest questions with ridicule or passive-aggressive comments. Millions of dollars, maybe tens of millions of dollars are spent on paid accounts and bots to reinforce the narrative on these news outlets. The affect is gaslighting. Making people doubt themselves or shy away from expressing their own opinions or honest questions. They are hostile comments. They are comments that try to shame people. All kinds of different strategies are used by these commenters. But the goal is to make people doubt their own selves and their own experiences.

For instance, I remember seeing a bunch of chemtrails over Portland a couple of years ago. It was quite obvious that we were being sprayed. I can’t recall exactly where it was that this discussion was happening on-line, but immediately, the authoritative, “I am smarter than anyone else here” commenter would fact-check and shame anyone who would say that what they saw in the sky was anything but planes doing their natural thing.

You know this experience. It took me a long time to realize that many, many, many of the accounts on Facebook are fake and are for that purpose. Once I realized that, I felt two things. First, depression at one more instance of the money and pressure constantly poured into silencing us. We are up against a powerful, well-trained enemy. But secondly, it also made me realize that these are not real people. They are fake people, literally in some cases, bots, but also even if real, fake, because they are paid accounts. That second realization was freeing. Once you ignore their noise, there are real people asking questions, and more than I thought. Now I just block them. This is war. They are enemies. Anyone who puts a mocking emoji on my post, I block them. Anyone who comments in line with the narrative, I block. I am not conversing with them. They are enemy. I may toy with them. But I block them. I am conversing with real people who have been gaslit and yet still are waking up.

Here is an example of gaslighting.

We are coming up on the 20th anniversary of September 11th

Anyone with two eyes can see that World Trade Center Towers One and Two, the twin towers were blown to kingdom come in pyroclastic dust clouds. Another skyscraper, the 47 story World Trade Center Building Seven, came down in classic controlled demolition at 5:20 in the afternoon. Anyone who looks at a video of it can see that.

Except that you can’t see that. You can’t see it because you have been gaslit for twenty years by the best gaslighters on Earth. If you didn’t know the story, and just saw the buildings, you would know they were blown up with explosives. But because we were trained in the government’s orthodoxy from the very first minutes, and shamed, cajoled, threatened, and mocked, since then, by every institution, media outlet, and government agency we have been, as a whole, with a few exceptions, gaslit on a major scale.

The gaslighters, ultimately those responsible for the false flag of 9/11, were able to convince the American people that what you see with your own eyes cannot be trusted. Experts need to tell you what really happened. This psychological tactic has worked.

What else? Cannabis and hemp. For a century, cannabis has been framed as a horrible drug. It was made illegal around the world. Why? Hemp is a valuable product. It is high energy and it is able to be made into many products, like oil is. It was seen to be a threat to the oil industry as well as the pharmaceutical industry. So people have been gaslit that cannabis is bad. I recommend a documentary by Massimo Mazucco. It is somewhat dated in regards to the current legal status of cannabis in some states, but it tells the history of the gaslighting against the people regarding this natural plant that has co-evolved with humanity for millions of years. His film is called, “The True History of Marijuana.”  He has made a number of important documentaries including films about cancer, 9/11, and even the moon landing. I interviewed him about his film American Moon a couple of years ago on KBOO in Portland.

The more I look into this, and I am just a newbie, I am finding that we have been are being gaslit in major ways about virtually everything. Let’s get specific again.

What if you convince a healthy person that she is sick when, in fact, she isn’t sick? Even though she feels healthy, she has no symptoms; nonetheless, she doubts her very health because you wouldn’t lie to her, would you? That is called gaslighting.

This is one of the central pillars of this scamdemic that has been used to destroy us these past 18 months. Asymptomatic transmission. Meaning, you have no symptoms, but you could be sick anyway. Because of this gaslighting, the whole lockdown extravaganza, masking, social isolation, all of it, is able to be done. If people trust their own bodies, their own experiences, their own senses, they would know if they are sick or not. But the gaslighting, because it comes from a massive authoritarian arsenal of propaganda, the experts, people are psychologically attacked and are anxious, confused, and doubt their own senses. After a while, people believe it and even defend it. The gaslighting becomes the Stockholm Syndrome, where people are so brain-addled that they take the side of their oppressor.

Back to gaslighting.

No one goes to the doctor and says, “I don’t have any symptoms, Doc, but I may have the flu.” But now, you don’t need symptoms. You take a test. An ominous take a stick up your nose almost into your brain test to show you have the disease.  Dr. Annie Bukacek, on my show three weeks ago, showed how the PCR is unreliable, that is putting it mildly. Fake is the way to say it properly. It is a scam. The “cases” are not of sick people but positive results of a fake test.

But it doesn’t end there. Children and adults have been gaslit into believing that children are potentially contagious with a disease they do not have, and cannot even get, but they can spread it.

This is all absurd on the face of it. It is a blatant in your face lie, but it has been foisted upon us by the media, primarily, so that most people, the vast majority have been gaslit into submission.

We have been shut down by gaslighting. People wear muzzles because they are afraid that you are sick when you are not. They are gaslit further by being told that they wear their masks for you. If you don’t wear it for others, you are selfish. If you make an objection to the governmental actions based on the Bill of Rights, or any fundamental human right truth, you are singled out as a selfish individual, even as you are fighting for the individual rights of those who participate in the government’s gaslighting. Individual rights are everyone’s individual rights.

The gaslighting is pervasive. Everything is thrown at you if you stand up for your own self and your own experience and your own expression. The namecalling, oh my gosh. You are an idiot! You don’t believe in science! Where is your medical degree? You don’t love Jesus!

Now it is at a level of mass insanity. The world is a very dangerous place right now. After 18 months the gaslighting has now turned people’s minds into cement. Now the Covid Psyop is perhaps as cemented into consciousness as the 9/11 Psyop or the Cannabis Psyop or even the Climate Change Psyop.

I was on the other side of this for a while, until I began to realize that it is a similar thing. Those pushing the narrative have an agenda for its solution. The world is messed up because your carbon footprint is too big. You eat meat. You drive too big of a car. Whatever. It is you who are responsible for the wildfires and the hot temperatures and the violent storms. The only solution is to have the experts solve the problem for you. We are being gaslit into thinking that everyday people are destroying the planet and in a very weird way that only supposed scientists can figure out.

Part of what is consistent in gaslighting is that so-called science and experts have the truth and you do not. Gaslighting is based on fascism. It is based on authoritarianism. It is based on abuse.

From my perspective, that is all it is, but it is mine and I will express it. From my perspective, climate change is a scam. We are being gaslit by it. The real problem is energy contraction, namely Peak Oil. We have been on the downslope of conventional oil production for at least ten years. We have hit energy limits and are collapsing. I recommend the film, “End of Suburbia” but not the one on-line. Get the full version. People to recommend include James Howard Kunstler, John Michael Greer, Richard Heinberg, and others.

But back to gaslighting. The connection between the climate change solution and the covid solution is eerily similar. Austerity. Stay home. Less driving. Less flying. Less contact with others. Less use of energy. New cars are not being made. Agricultural equipment is not being made. I paid the other day $96 for two sheets of plywood. Construction materials, when you can get them, are three times what they were before this scamdemic. It has nothing to do with a virus. That is the gaslighting. It is the so-called response to the virus, a response that has been planed for a long time.  And now, eat less meat. In fact, the controllers will be manufacturing some nice insect burgers for you. Why? Because cows fart and are creating methane that is warming the planet.

All of this is done through lies. Gaslighting is a lie. But it is a particularly insidious lie as it makes people doubt their own reality. It takes your humanity away from you. You are sick. You are sick until proven healthy and you will never be proven healthy, because you could have just picked up the covid right now.

Will people ever wake up to this?

What I mean essentially, is the gaslighting regarding this covid thing. The other issues I am exploring as I learn. I am not insisting that you accept everything I say. I don’t insist at all. I don’t care what you believe or don’t believe. I don’t want to imply that to get the concept of gaslighting and in particular the gaslighting regarding Covid that you have to accept all the other examples that I think are also gaslighting.

Back to the basics. I hope to make a successful impression that gaslighting is the central psychological operation used against all of us by the billionaires controlling us. The pillar of this scam is based upon believing that everyone is sick when they don’t have any symptoms. That is the scam in a nutshell.

That you are sick until proven healthy. Unless you wear your muzzle, unless you take the needle, you are hurting other people. That is gaslighting. It is a lie.

Unless you wear your muzzle, unless you take the needle, unless you isolate yourself from others, you are preventing society from getting back to normal. That is gaslighting. It is a lie.

If you say things that challenge the narrative of the authorities that you hear on “the news” you are crazy. You are wrong. You are a conspiracy theorist. That is gaslighting. It is a lie.

We know how to take care of ourselves when we are sick. Nothing magically changed in the world to change that. But those in authority act as though it did and are doing everything in every institution possible to make you think that is the case. That there is an invisible sickness that you must believe you have. It is gaslighting.

The cure, in my opinion, is to ask yourself, are you sick or not? I am not. If I do get sick. I will stay home. I won’t sneeze on you.

This is all a scam. The world has been shut down for this.

Now the variants. Well, do you think these variants, to the extent that they exist, might actually be reactions from the injections themselves? The media is pushing out fear porn every ten seconds. When that happens, the default should be, “Bullcrap.” They are lying. They are gaslighting.

Does that mean that no one is getting sick? No, I am not saying that.  There are biological agents. I think the US attacked Iran with them for sure. There are likely many of these agents that can be used and are used to attack people and make them sick. Think of all the crap everywhere that is making us sick. It will get worse. Now, people are getting injected with poisons. They are having adverse reactions to them.

We are told that it is the unvaccinated that are filling up the hospitals. Well, I am not so sure about that. Especially as I have seen reports that people with just one jab are considered unvaccinated. They are not fully vaccinated. So therefore they are unvaccinated. In my accounting, they have still been injected and that injection could be the cause of the illness.

I don’t know. Who knows? Who knows what is really happening in those hospitals?

As I see it, this is the collapse of civilization and the rearranging of our human systems. The Great Reset. Check out my interview with Tessa Lena. She is writing some great stuff on the Great Reset. Same with Michael Rectenwald, also on my show recently. 

But the tactic that is consistent, in my observation, is gaslighting.

Making you doubt your own self, senses, experiences, and expressions. Gaslighting steals your humanity from you. It browbeats you. It abuses you.

You have to keep telling yourself:

I know what I see, hear, taste, smell, touch, experience. I will not be gaslit. I cannot stop people from trying to gaslight me. I can’t stop them from saying stuff that isn’t true, but I don’t need to internalize it. It isn’t real. I know who I am. I may be wrong about some things. I can change my mind. I can research for myself. I do not have to be told what is authoritative and what is not. I don’t have to be told what is a reliable source and what is not. I don’t have to be fact-checked. I can figure these things out for myself, thank you. If you are interested in exploring with me, well freedom loves company.

Gaslighting is a spiritual attack. It is an attack on our soul. It is important to do good stuff for your soul. It is good to internalize love and peace and joy.  It is good to internalize courage. It is good to internalize truth. It is good to hang out, in person, and online as well with people who do not gaslight you. Don’t let people call you crazy. Keep a safe distance from them. They are not healthy for you.

Sadly the divisions that are constantly being thrown at us are dividing families and friends. This is not about health. Healthy authorities who cared about actual health would never do this kind of stuff. A media corporation, a president, a governor, a doctor, who cares about you, does not lie to you with all of this fear porn and then scapegoat those who question it as awful people.

We are in for what James Howard Kunstler calls a long emergency. The authorities will be throwing panic after panic after panic upon us. The road is dangerous and bumpy and long. It won’t be over with some dramatic nuclear bomb next year, at least I don’t think. We are in for a long transformation. While dangerous, it does not mean we should live in fear.

We are going to die, someday. Until then, let us live.

This really is my point. Don’t let anyone gaslight you.

You are good. You are beautiful. You are healthy. You are a carrier of joy and goodness and truth and these bastards are not going to take that away.

Gaslighting is deception.

Spirituality conquers deception in a few important ways.

(The following was taken from Ekklesia).

First: Do Not Fear.

Fear is not from God. Fear is from the Deceiver. These Serpents feed off of our fear. There is nothing to fear. They can kill us. That’s it. They can kill the body, not the soul. We will die anyway at some point. Let us die for Christ. Let us die for Allah. Let us die because it is better to die than be a slave. Banish fear from your life. When you feel afraid, find your Bible. Find your Qur’an. Pray. Breathe. Breathe in and out.

“I am not afraid. God is near.”

From the Qur’an:

Do you think that you could enter paradise without having suffered like those [believers] who passed away before you? Misfortune and hardship befell them, and so shaken were they that the apostle, and the believers with him, would exclaim, “When will God’s succor come?”

O, verily, God’s succor is [always] near!

From Psalm 46:

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult.

Feeling afraid? Pray it. Doesn’t seem to work? Pray it again. Pray away the fear.

Second: Stay away from the media.

It is programming designed to mess you up. Know that. It is enemy propaganda. Purify yourself from it. It is everywhere. Social media is controlled by the enemy, too. All of it belongs to the enemy. All media. Don’t spend too much time on the screens. We have to use it, but it belongs to the enemy. Know that. Be careful. Don’t spend so much time in it that you get burned. Don’t listen to the smooth-talking celebrities or politicians, no matter how much you like them. They are tools of the enemy. This is all deception. Rule of thumb that I mentioned last week. Anyone who is unable to be truthful about 9/11 cannot be trusted. They either haven’t done the research or they are lying about it or they are so deceived that they are worthless.

Three: Instead, spend your time researching what is real.

Here are some names to search through Duck Duck Go on your Brave browser. There are more than this list. There are people out there searching for what is true and reporting it to you. These are a few that I know.

Kevin BarrettSpiro SkourasDavid IckeJames CorbettVanessa BeeleyMark TalianoChuck BaldwinAnnie BukacekHelen Buyniski.

This is not an exhaustive list. They are people I know.

Watch their videos. Read their articles. I post a lot of stuff on my Facebook page from different sources. I will do so until it is deleted and until I am deleted.

We are being erased. However, the truth is rising. We need truth warriors.

Don’t believe everything. Discern for yourself. Be strong.

Four: Know who your friends are and who the enemy is.

This is war. Be careful. Know who your friends are. They are few. Know who the enemy is. Most people are computer programs. The government presses ENTER and people stand in line, put on a mask, and snitch on their neighbors. They work for the enemy. The enemy is the one who imposed this lockdown. Remember, we did not ask for this. We did not discuss this. This was imposed upon us.

Five: Know that you have a purpose.

It is no accident that you are here now. It is no accident that you are hearing this or watching it or reading it. This is the apocalypse. You are alive in the midst of it. You need to be strong. You need to be a warrior.

Six: Take risks.

Take the risks you can to live like a human being. I cannot tell you what to do. You will have to figure that out. But meeting with a community can help.

Again,

1) Do Not Fear.
2) Stay Away from the Media.
3) Research What is Real.
4) Know Your Friends and Your Enemy.
5) Know You Have a Purpose.
6) Take Risks

You didn’t sign up for this. I get it. This got dumped on us.

The best I see it is that you and I are Eternal Consciousness having a particular experience. When we identify so closely with the experience that we cannot free ourselves from our emotions, we need to remember who we are spiritually. We need to meditate, pray, journal, exercise, do whatever it takes to realize that we have a body but we are not our body. We have emotions but we are not our emotions. We have thoughts but we are not our thoughts. We can step back from them and realize that reality. We are from above. We are part of the eternal. We are of God. One day we shall return. We will ascend like Jesus (pbuh).

One of the practices that has been taken from us, perhaps the most important practice, is to gather physically and share our experience. We have to take that back. Get together physically, with people you love, and be human. Touch. Hug. Embrace. Pray. Weep. Laugh.

That is the church, the Greek word is ekklesia, the physical gathering of people.

Let us be that again. Now.

Amen.

In Search of the Historical Covid

In Search of the Historical Covid

In Search of The Historical COVID
July 18, 2021

As a pastor who is interested in scholarly things, my interest throughout my ministry was with the figure of Jesus. What was Jesus? Who was Jesus? I followed the scholars who were searching for the historical Jesus, that is what can be known about the person of Jesus, as opposed to the theological Jesus or more precisely the Jesus of Creed.

This is a fascinating study. I have a library of books on the topic. If you search previous radio broadcasts at Progressive Spirit dot net, you will find many interviews with leading scholars on the topic of the historical Jesus.

The views range widely from 1) Jesus being mostly what the gospels say he was, to 2) the gospels provide little information and are mostly legend, to 3) Jesus didn’t exist at all. I studied the so-called Gnostic gospels, the Qur’an and whatever people said about Jesus.

The scholars and their fans were quite passionate about what they knew and suspected, and often, sadly, in my opinion, were less than gracious to people who had in their view, wrong points of view.

It was a fascinating study and fruitful really in my ministry as people in my churches were interested in this kind of thing as well. The study of the historical Jesus, including reading all the varieties of Jesus was helpful to me in navigating a spirituality.

I opened myself to a variety of views, trying them on to see what fit. I don’t think I found the answer, but I did find a deepened awareness for spiritual literature and for the person of Jesus, however elusive he might be.

What I am finding is that the debate among skeptics regarding COVID reminds me of the historical Jesus debate.

Is the virus Sars Cov 2 and the resulting illness COVID 19 what the media and our institutions say it is? Most skeptics are skeptical of the powers who under the banner of “science” that looks to many like “authoritarianism” have the corner on orthodoxy, which means straight words, straight thinking, or right thinking. They promote it and enforce it. There is no doubt what everyone must think, believe, and do regarding COVID 19.

So they are wrong for the very fact that they don’t allow debate. There are many scientists, doctors, and smart regular people who question the orthodox narrative, but are censored.

So the orthodox position has problems not only in its content but in its method of suppressing debate.

But if Sars Cov 2 and in particular, COVID 19 is not a disease that originated from a wild bat and is so ferocious that the world must be locked down and everyone must lose their freedoms and rights and engage in dubious behaviors to prevent its spread, such as wear masks on their faces, avoid other people, and take experimental injections, then what is it? What is COVID 19?

The skeptics are not on the same page.

Some say that this virus is a bioweapon that accidentally escaped from a Chinese lab.

Others say the virus is a bioweapon that the US Deep State created and released to attack China and Iran and it then blewback upon the world.

Others say, it is mostly a media creation—a collection of symptoms labelled as COVID, symptoms that resemble a cold, flu, or a respiratory disease, but in and of itself really is nothing.

Others say it is the flu, rebranded.

Others say it is a natural virus in a large family of viruses that we deal with all the time, this happens to be more severe for those who are ill or elderly.

Still others question the existence of viruses altogether and say that what are called viruses are really exosomes, our own body’s response to an outside pathogen.

Other views combine elements of the above.

Others, and I find myself sympathetic here, is that COVID 19 is a mythical collection (think in terms of sacred myth) of smaller events, perhaps unrelated, that have been manipulated and collected and narrativized. So for example, it is quite likely that the US deep state attacked China and Iran with a bioweapon. Does that mean that what is called COVID 19 by the media and governments and especially the response by the same – really the same thing as what might have been released? It may have started there, and it may have made people sick and contributed to their deaths, but it has also metastasized into a full-blown myth, particularly in regards to the response to it by authoritarian governments around the world.

It is like historical Jesus research in that the challenge is to separate the myth from the man, or the myth from the virus, and it depends a great deal on your perspective about what is myth and what is real.

It is very important that we get this right. What we think of it, directs our response. For example, what should we worry about: the virus (especially if it is a bioweapon and the geopolitics of this) or the response (lockdowns, restriction of rights, etc.) or the injection?

Your answer will depend upon what you think of the historical Covid.

In the debates over the historical Jesus, it appeared that scholars and their fans spent their time defending their pet theories. Evidence brought forth from those with different views was often dismissed or relegated to minor status, while one’s own evidence was given prominence. I guess that is the way it goes for most things.

I also found it distressing that people were in different camps and were often quite hostile to others, not always, but more often than I found desirable.

This is my point. This is sadly true with the covid skeptics. They are ruthless to each other at times, calling each other controlled opposition or disinfo agents, or worse. It is all very unpleasant.

My hope is that we can be open to a variety of views and be discerning and polite and have uncensored debate. We live in a time in which all skeptics are being erased. The orthodox want it all. We need to ban together even as we disagree over certain aspects of this. As I see it, we are being purposefully confused and divided. It is true that we are being deceived with disinformation. But we don’t always know what is and what isn’t, especially in an area that few people really know that well, in fact, even experts do not seem to agree on basic things.

This is a psyop. That is a guarantee. We are the experiment. Don’t get caught up in squabbles or envy. Seek the truth, even when, and especially when, you find evidence that challenges your pet theory.
