Software Program or Soul?

Here is the sermon for May 3, 2020.

Today is Sunday, May 3, 2020.

We are still in lockdown, house arrest, whatever you wish to call it. I heard a report that my governor says the state of emergency will be in place until July 6th. More smoke and mirrors. There is no end in sight.

Supermarkets are more and more regimented with amazingly well-produced signage telling you where to stand and how to behave. Don’t walk the wrong way down the aisle! Make sure you don’t encroach in another’s space! The employees are scrubbing your cart down before and after with magic solution. In the outside world, people are wearing masks while driving alone in their cars. What is happening?

It was raining yesterday. My wife and I thought to get a couple of things at the local Home Depot. We changed our minds when we saw outside the store a long line of people, maybe 40 or more, standing in the rain waiting to get into the store. Why are they in a line, in the cold rain, six feet apart from one another? Because the new COVID rules limit the number of shoppers inside. So, in this upside-down world, it is healthier to stand outside in the cold rain rather than inside a warm and dry store.

What about this brings the most sadness? What is the most despairing thing? I do despair. I wrote this on FB the other day. Yes, Facebook, the platform that has been censoring, deleting and banning people faster and faster in recent days. David Icke was banned on Friday. He is not the only one. We are descending into darkness. Darkness doesn’t mean we are dead. It means it is dark. There will be no alternative voices on popular platforms to the elite narrative. We are being erased.

I am telling you very clearly. The world you knew is gone forever and we are now being prepared through the social isolation, mask wearing, snitching, and blind obedience to authority and its media, to a new way of being, a new robotic way of being, a controlled way of being. This is not about a virus. This is about control. There is no end in sight. Don’t get lost in the fear porn of the virus from the media. None of it can be trusted.

I wrote this:

This morning I awoke with a feeling I hadn’t felt since my son’s death nearly eight years ago. In the days following his death, I didn’t want to fall asleep because in my sleep I would dream that he was alive and with us. I would awaken to the cold reality that he was gone. In time that fear of sleep left me. It returned early this morning as I awoke with a start. I dreamt of a normal past life. I awoke suddenly to the realization that this NWO apocalypse or whatever we’ll call it, is the reality not the nightmare. Will this new fear of sleep ever leave me? It isn’t the sleep that frightens. It is the awakening.

I am not afraid of the virus. The virus is manufactured. COVID is a movie. Real people die. But we have no idea what is really killing them. We are only told. We are told by the same movie-makers who gave us 9/11. It isn’t the wickedness in high places that causes the despair in me. It isn’t the wickedness of the elites who have unleashed this psychological operation upon us that causes me to fear awakening. The despair is caused by the reactions of others who not only accept what they are told but actively silence those who are searching for what is real and true. The despair is for the collective delusion of my fellow humans. We are descending into slavery, in which every aspect of our lives will be controlled. We are seeing it unfold now. We are not becoming enslaved by force, but by our own acquiescence.

That said, it is still force. This is a psychological operation enacted by transnational agents and personalities upon all of us. This has been planned for many decades, perhaps generations. But we could resist it if there were enough people who could see this for what it is and simply say, “We are not going to cooperate.”

That may happen. There are people who battle tirelessly to communicate what they have seen and have discovered that is contrary to the media propaganda, and they will continue to do this as long as they are able to do so.

But now this movement is being forced underground. As I see it, it will likely remain there for decades if not centuries. I wrote this poem in September 2018. It is called “For the Martyrs Who Bear Witness.”

For The Martyrs Who Bear Witness
If they tell you I suicided,
It may be not because I killed myself.

If they say I went crazy,
It may be not because I was mentally ill.

If I am accused of doing all kinds of bad things,
It may be not because I did them.

If I stop talking about what I think is true,
It may be not because I have changed my mind.

If I end up vanishing from public space,
I may be still found in secret places.

If the world goes dark with lies and violence,
Look for the candles of those still bearing witness.

We are now approaching the last stanza of this poem. The world is going dark with lies and violence. For the vast majority, for those whose minds are software programs, they will see nothing wrong with being fed, staying in line, obeying every command, denying their own humanity, and reporting on anyone who does not conform.

You will not find the voices of the martyrs on the mega-platforms (Google/Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) These voices are being systematically silenced, their contributions are being erased. You will have to go to secret places. You will have to go underground.

In 2006 I started my blog, Shuck and Jive. So far, it is still on-line. I started it because I was made aware of a phenomenon called Peak Oil. I wrote dozens, perhaps hundreds of posts on Peak Oil over the years. Few took it seriously of course. Too depressing. Peak Oil ultimately would result in a contraction of energy, economy, and population leading to social and economic collapse. Peak Oil was a driving factor behind the 9/11 False Flag. We are now witnessing this global collapse.

I used to wonder why “they” didn’t get it. Why didn’t our presidents and our politicians and our hot shot thinkers talk about this more and make plans for how we as humans, and particularly Americans (who while four percent of the world’s population consume 25% of the world’s oil), should do about this impending contraction, so we could contract with awareness and with justice. We should be going local. Instead we are going global.

The global elite have been thinking about this and planning for it for a long time. COVID is the implementation of the plan. COVID is a controlled demolition of the global economy. It is a contraction that is engineered to benefit the elite. Those plebians who survive this ritual of transformation to the new reality either will be incorporated into it, accepting all the elements of global control and servitude, or they will rebel and die, or they will be ushered into prison camps, however large or small they need to be as we see now in Gaza. This is my despair. This is happening.

The same people, by the way, who control the concentration camp that is Gaza are the same people who engineered 9/11 and this COVID operation. They are all part of the same cabal, the same cult of transnational agents and personalities. Read David Icke’s book Trigger. Hadn’t heard about that book? Oh, yes, you haven’t heard of it because Icke was banned from Facebook and Youtube. He is not acceptable. Who he names is why he is banned. More than most, in my opinion, David Icke gets what is happening and who is responsible. He is one of the witnesses who has been telling us for three decades what has been happening and he has been exposing these psychopathic monsters who are running our world. He was one of the earliest voices to show that 9/11 was a scam. (Alice in Wonderland and the World Trade Center Disaster, 2002).

Since this is a sermon, I should say something spiritual.

There are particular challenges for the spiritual person. Spiritual is in contradiction to a software program. As David Icke points out, the vast, vast majority of people are software programs. The government and its media say, “Do this.” Then they press “Enter” and the people stand six feet apart, don their masks, and report on those who don’t obey. A good rule of thumb is that those who are wearing masks today are software programs.

Spiritual people on the other hand, are feeling that this is not right. They are not sure what to believe and David Icke and all the other so-called “conspiracy theorists” are causing significant cognitive dissonance. What does a spiritual person do?

I think the first thing one must do is to develop an understanding of what is real. You need to answer these questions with spiritual awareness. If you do not understand the bigger picture, you will not be able to comprehend what is happening to us now. People ask me, “What are we supposed to do?” Here is an answer. Get out your journal. Answer these questions with greater and greater depth until you can understand what is happening. Here are the questions:

Who are you? What happens to you when you die? What is this existence? Who made it? Who controls it? What is the Good? What is the origin and role of evil? What is the long plan of both evil and Good? How do see yourself in this plan?

These questions are not easy. The answers are not provided by religion, science or philosophy in and of themselves. These questions are yours. You as a spiritual person have no choice but to struggle with these questions. It isn’t about being smart or intellectual or educated. It is about your heart, your soul, You.

If you are feeling cognitive dissonance it is because your comprehension of reality is not comprehensive enough for this experience. This is why so many people cannot get what happened on September 11th, 2001. The elites blew up three skyscrapers in front of our faces and said they didn’t do it. How did they get away with that? Simple. They control the software programs that are people’s perceptions. In these software programs, the reality of evil is veiled.

Removing the veil is the spiritual journey. The ability and the will to remove the veil that covers evil is the difference between being spiritual and being a software program. Of course, you need an understanding of the Good that is larger than evil to stay on your path. Because that is of course, who you are as a spiritual person. You are the Good.

One of the challenges is that we tend to want things to work out in our own lifetimes, in this particular experience. So I will be blunt. You need to be prepared not to live through this. Outside of a cosmic miracle, we will be descending into darkness and ultimately into slavery for decades if not centuries. That is why it is important for you to have an understanding of “you” beyond your death or beyond this experience of reality. You may be doing your most important work after you are dead.

Pretty crazy, right? It is going to get crazier, Beloveds. As this lockdown rolls on and as the elites send us one PSYOP plague after another (terrorists, viruses, monster hornets, alien attacks) and as the vast numbers transition to their new robotic existence, more and more spiritual people will start to realize what is happening. They will look for spiritual compatriots, guides, witnesses, martyrs. These witnesses are saying to you now:

If I end up vanishing from public space,
I may be still found in secret places.

If the world goes dark with lies and violence,
Look for the candles of those still bearing witness.

This is the long game. Don’t fret the trolls. Don’t let them get under your skin. They are software programs, nothing more. You have a soul. Embrace it.

Amen.

A Sermon for Conspiracy Theorists

I haven’t prepared a sermon since I left my church in November. Now that the country is doing “virtual church” and since I am a “virtual pastor” I thought I would create a “virtual sermon” for you to “virtually read.”

Ephesians 6:12
For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Today is March 15th, 2020. It is Sunday. It is the Third Sunday of Lent. Many churches are closed. Many are offering instead “virtual worship.” The goal is of course not to gather in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus that has now been called a global pandemic.

It is this pandemic that made me think about my vocation. I am no longer the pastor of a congregation. Yet I still feel like a pastor. I feel the need to be pastoral to someone. A pastor should say something about our situation from the perspective of the Gospel. I wrote this on my Facebook page this past week:

“I am no longer the pastor of a congregation. It would be interesting to be one at this time. But still I am a pastor at heart. However this pandemic shakes out, either with massive death or sickness, or if it fades away, pastoral care is needed especially as we enter, in the US at least, unprecedented isolation and grave economic hardship as our economies (especially our individual household economies) are threatened by all of the shut downs. Perhaps we need more than anything a Gospel perspective as opposed to the partisan political perspectives that dominate so much of our discourse. Namely, I think we need to come to terms with fear in relation to survival and accepting anything authorities may do, whether illusory or real, that momentarily alleviates that fear. The reality is that we all will die someday. That fear of death must be faced. Life in the gospel is living as if one is ready to die. That of course is the gospel’s freedom. We live for this moment. For truth, for justice, for love with courage. When we die, we die as those who go forth to live. 

I am not sure what I can offer as a pastor in this unique time for me as a pastor without a church. Perhaps I am at this point an internet pastor. I have been spending my time since leaving my last church reading, researching, and sharing what I learn from others on this FB page. It doesn’t seem like much. But it is what I do now in this time of my “sabbatical.” But more I feel is coming. There is a lot inside me that needs to come out. 

Do know, whether you consider yourself spiritual or not from whatever philosophy or faith tradition or none, that I will do my best to communicate what I see to be real as uncomfortable and controversial as that can be. I will be wrong. I will not see everything. I will get stuck in a deceitful rabbit hole on occasion. But I will seek to explore what is real. 

From whatever your perspective on philosophy/faith etc., you are welcome here. 

I will do my best to be empathetic and hopefully kind as I do that. For those who find what I write and share too objectionable, then peace be with you in your journey. What will not work are attempts to silence me for following my path. 

I do this, and I still do it as a pastor, because I feel called to it, summoned you might say. I have no idea what is to come for us as a country and a world. But I know that those guides who are real for me (Jesus and Hussain peace be upon them) are worthy of my trust. 

Their example (and their presence that I feel) is stronger, more true, and more real than the enemies of humanity who I name here often and who I feel we are summoned to unmask, name, and engage.

I guess this is all to say that I am a pastor even at this moment—a brother in faith to some—a brother in humanity to others, and I am not afraid of what is to come for us, the human species, but I am ready and open to do what is to be done this day as a pastor.”

That is what I wrote a few days ago. Since today is Sunday, I wondered if it might be time to write a sermon. I started with the lectionary text for today, Romans 5:1-11, but my sermon didn’t seem to go anywhere. Although this line again sticks out as it always does. Paul writes that we

boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint…

I decided not to write a sermon. But I want to write something. There is much in me that needs to come out about so many things. So much suffering is now and is on the way for so many people, for the whole of humanity. The most vulnerable, the elderly, the sick, will be on the front lines of this virus. If exponential infection proceeds as it seems to be doing, perhaps millions could die around the world, including in the United States.  My prayers and my gratitude are with nurses and doctors and first responders who are caring for the sick. As Presbyterian pastor, Fred Rogers, who we know as Mister Rogers, said, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

I am taking precautions, not so much for myself, but so I don’t spread the virus if I am infected. We have been told that we can be contagious for weeks before we develop any symptoms. I am self-isolating with my wife and puppies. I don’t know what this is. I have no predictions regarding this virus. In this regard I am going along with the herd, but with a suspicious mind.

I could repeat the information we get from the mainstream media on our screens. But you know that as well as I do, possibly better, because I rarely watch it. My intuition tells me as well as what I have read and seen from people I trust, and from my understanding of recent history, is that something sinister is afoot.

I was asked if this is from God as a test. That is a question for which one can never be certain as are all questions about the workings of God. But I answered that I didn’t think it was from God. Yet in many respects, this is, as is all of life itself, a test.

Is this some random freak of nature such as the mainstream media tell us? Is this from eating a wild bat in a market in a China? My answer is again, I think not.

That answer puts me in the category of conspiracy theorist. A conspiracy theorist in the pejorative meaning of the phrase is someone who doesn’t believe what she or he is supposed to believe.

Aristotle is said to have said that “the mark of an educated mind is to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” So yes, I entertain many thoughts of conspiracy but I accept only those that are true. Aristotle might have been a conspiracy theorist.

The quote unquote “conspiracy theory” that I entertain in this regard is that this pandemic is a combination of bioweapon/PSYOP to push through a variety of agendas. Whether it was unleashed in a calculated way or by an accidental escape from the laboratory is a larger unknown. People I trust entertain this theory as well and given that biological weapons are being manufactured all over the world under the auspices of governments and their militaries, it seems logical that would be the first theory any thinking person would explore. But the mainstream media, a megaphone for the powerful, will not entertain this logical theory and instead it promotes the theory that this virus is a product of nature and was transferred to humans by wild bats. This is most likely a cover story. The Hollywood film, Contagian, is a blueprint for this story

The media cannot be trusted for the truth of what is really happening. 

I say this with confidence. One piece of evidence will suffice for my view of the media. At 5:20 in the afternoon on September 11th, 2001, World Trade Center Tower Building 7 was imploded by controlled demolition into its own footprint in less than seven seconds. Mainstream media has covered up this story to this day on behalf of powerful agencies that are supposed to supply truth but do the opposite, at least on this matter, such as NIST, the National Institute for Science and Technology. The mainstream media by this continued cover-up shows that it has lost all credibility regarding anything of importance. Obviously, what happened on September 11th, 2001 and especially who is responsible is of utmost importance to the human race. Those who really did it are still in control of the world today and are protected by their propaganda arm, their own media outlets. 

My working theory is that COVID-19 was created in a laboratory for the purposes of mayhem by the usual suspects and unleashed at this particular time and manner for a variety of reasons. Those reasons I do not know but I suspect these reasons have to do with population manipulation and control for the benefit of the world’s elite. Many people I trust and those I don’t have a number of views regarding what these agendas might be and I find it healthy to entertain them per Aristotle. As these new agendas are rolled out in the coming months and years, we will know, or at least those who follow Aristotle’s dictum will know.

The big question is whether or not the populace will know and with knowing will free themselves from slavery to the elites. I have decided that question is not mine to answer. I can only leave that to God. My calling or summons is to tell what I think is real to the best of my ability. That said I do believe that there are people who have a hunch that something isn’t what the mainstream media says it is in regards to all of this. Many are drawn to what conspiracy theorists entertain without admitting it to others or perhaps even themselves that these people may be right to question what we are told by official outlets. These curious people contain a spark in their consciousness that is waiting for ignition. That is my hope. But again, it is not my business. I just do my job. My job these days is assisted by an increasing freedom from concern about what others think.

Conspiracy theorists do suffer. They suffer from ridicule and censorship. They suffer from loneliness and from marginalization. Some suffer actual harm from what the author of Ephesians calls

“the rulers…the authorities…the cosmic powers of this present darkness…the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”

Conspiracy theorists are like Old Testament prophets.

No one liked them then and no one likes them now. 

But as Paul says in today’s lectionary text,

we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint…

Maybe I did write a sermon after all. A sermon for conspiracy theorists and for conspiracy theorists in the making. The world needs you. You are blessed and you are a blessing.

Those who believe what they are supposed to believe and who follow what the mainstream media says to believe will not be happy with me. I am at peace with that. There are plenty of pastors for them. But there are not many pastors for those who are not in the mainstream.

Really I am not a pastor in my understanding of the word, because I have not been called to a congregation. But as a fellow seeker of what is true, I will hopefully be a fellow traveler to you should you decide this lonely path is yours as well.

At that I will heartily say, Amen.
