Letter to our Friends - May 7, 2021


Leonard V. Johnson

Greetings from the Tampa Bay Area, Florida:


I’ve added a personal (at this time) MeWe site! Like Mae West would say, ‘Come on [over] and see me some time.’ MeWe is an American social media and social networking service which lauds itself as the “next-generation social network.” According to the socialist-like Wikipedia, MeWe’s “light approach to content moderation has made it popular among American conservatives, conspiracy theorists, and anti-vaxxers. Due to concerns with possible pro-China censorship of Facebook, the site also gained popularity in Hong Kong in November 2020.” Can you tell that Wikipedia doesn’t like this social media network!? If you were to look up Facebook on Wikipedia – they practically praise Mark Zuckerberg!

Now friends, the Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries is NOT, nor our affiliated churches, into “conspiracy theories” – cf. 2 Corinthians 10:5; Isaiah 8:12-13. And, as far as “anti-vaxxers” I think that’s a personal matter. But, I do know –

Big Brother – also called Big Tech – and the government of the United States of America are more and more monitoring (remember Edward Snowden, who has been known to say, “Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say”) and restricting ideas as well as free speech. And Facebook appears to be at the forefront.

Well, here is something related to our “Big Brother” –
January 28th, 2021

Protestant … Robert AJ Gagnon was suspended by Facebook on Tuesday for 24 hours after speaking out against transgenderism and President Joe Biden’s new transgender military policy. Facebook claimed that Gagnon’s critique of this ideology violated the social media’s “Community Standards on violence and incitement.”

The post was ironically referring to another post written by his friend, Laurie Higgins, who was suspended for seven days for blasting Biden’s policy.

“There was absolutely no incitement to violence on our part. We abhor violence done to any person,” Gagnon told PJ Media. “This is just a thinly veiled and pathetic excuse for censorship of any critical views toward trans-tyranny over our consciences, religion, and reason.”

“Only one point of view is being allowed,” he said. “Trump was not the great danger to the Republic. Left-wing canceling is.” …

The following is the text from the post-Gagnon got suspended for:

My friend Laurie Higgins has been suspended for 7 days, for making an accurate and witty satirical post, by left-wing FB overlords who seek to squash all dissent on the issue of transgenderism, no doubt emboldened by the Biden/Harris administration. There’s nothing inaccurate about this post.

Biden’s lifting of Trump’s transgender military ban will indeed put women military personnel in the awful position of having to shower with biological males.

Trans-promoters aren’t content with having men invade the domain of women’s sports and shelters.
“Transgender” ideology is indeed a pseudo-science, compelling people to reject basic biological facts.
Promoters of “transgenderism” do indeed exhibit traits of a religious cult in their mind-numbing, science-denying conformity. The censoring and suspending of Laurie Higgins rather proves the point, doesn’t it?

“We have these standards to prevent and disrupt offline harm,” Facebook communicated to Gagnon.

Facebook – a.k.a. Mark Zuckerberg - shouldn’t suspend someone for something like that.

God’s living word teaches:
“’ Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression, And the house of Jacob their sins’” – Isaiah 58:1, NKJV and throughout, unless otherwise noted.
Friends – pro-abortion (basically, pro-murder), transgenderism, homosexuality, pornography, lesbianism, along with the other sins being promoted by the Biden Administration is WRONG! And we, the Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries and our affiliated churches would be considered, in this new society – a domestic terrorist.

But it isn’t just our Big Brother that wants to muzzle us American Conservatives concerning certain aspects of immorality.

Notice this:
Would YOU Be Considered a Domestic Terrorist Under This New Bill?

After 9/11, the entire country collectively lost its mind in the throes of fear. During that time, all civil and Constitutional rights were shredded and replaced with the pages of The USA PATRIOT Act.

Almost 20 years later, the U.S. has again lost its collective mind, this time in fear of a “virus” and its “super mutations” and a “riot” at the capitol. A lot of people called this and to the surprise of very few, much like after 9/11, Americans are watching what remains of their civil liberties be replaced with a new bill.

The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021

The DTPA is essentially the criminalization of speech, expression, and thought. It takes cancel culture a step further and all but outlaws unpopular opinions. This act will empower intelligence, law enforcement, and even military wings of the American ruling class to crack down on individuals adhering to certain belief systems and ideologies. …

Soon there will be no rights left for Americans

In the last twenty years, Americans have lost their 4th Amendment rights, and now they are losing their 1st. All that remains is the 2nd Amendment, and both the ruling class and increasing numbers of the American people know it. Dark days are ahead.

Sadly, the USA is resembling the early stages of being a police state.

God’s living word WARNS of the seventh resurrection of a “Holy” Roman Empire within a united Europe! But, prior to this, Almighty God has this warning for the modern-nations of Israel – the house of Jacob –
“’ But IF you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments, 15) and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant, 16) I also will do this to you: I will even appoint TERROR over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17) I will set My face against you, and you shall be defeated by your enemies. THOSE WHO HATE YOU shall reign over you, and you shall flee when no one pursues you’” – Leviticus 26:16-17.

“’ The sword shall destroy outside; There shall be TERROR within For the young man and virgin, The nursing child with the man of gray hairs’” – Deuteronomy 32:25.
Friends, the America we grew up in has drastically changed – a lot since September 11, 2001 – and will continue to change for the worse.

World News Items

There are a great many in – or were once part of – the French military is gravely concerned about the possibility of a civil war because of the major presence of Islam in the nation of France (See: Zero Hedge – Majority of French Agree With Military Generals That Nation Is Nearing “Civil War,” New Poll Finds’).

In Germany, the Alliance ‘90/The Greens – a political party in Germany (which has 101,561 members, making it the fourth largest party in Germany by membership) has put forth support for the federalization of the European Union. Meaning, a proposal by which the European Union (EU) could be transformed from an informal confederation (a union of sovereign states) into a federation (a single federal state with a central government). (See: Express – EU Army Warning – Candidate to replace Merkel demands ‘serious steps’ taken – huge backlash’). According to God’s living word, EUROPE will end up with a “great army” and will use it! – cf. Daniel 11:25.

In the United States of America, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom – all have issued statements criticizing China’s treatment of the Uyghurs (a Turkic ethnic group originating from and culturally affiliated with the general region of Central and East Asia). But, New Zealand abstained. (See: BBC – Five Eyes: Is the alliance in trouble over China?’). If our brothers in New Zealand think that this abstention will prevent major issues in the future, they are sorely mistaken. On a related note – Australian leaders are concerned that a war with China is near (See: CNN – Why are Australian officials hinting at war with China?’).

Concluding Comments

Minister Michael C. Garrett wrote:
“Well the earthquakes spoken of by Jesus Christ in His “Olivet Prophecy,” I believe occur at or near the time of a massive world war – think Daniel 11. ‘king of the North’ and the ‘king of the South.’ However, the Bible does also speak of another demarcation of time, which is called the Day of the LORD. And it is a series of progressions of end-time events in which God Almighty and Jesus Christ pour out Their judgment upon a rebellious sin-filled and ill- fated world, and as it were become face-to-face involved – direct involvement. Just as God destroyed the world in the days of Noah, so that He could – in effect – just start over. Just as God allowed Jerusalem and the temple, and the temple elite, to be destroyed in A.D. 70. He allowed it. And why!? Because He was going to reinstitute the priesthood of Jesus Christ. No more Pharisees, Sadducees, or the ancient Levitical priesthood. Now it was going to be the priesthood of Jesus Christ!

And according to the same pattern, I believe that God Almighty and Jesus Christ is going to destroy whole segments of this world. Its leaders, its governments, its armed forces, its religions, its economy, its morals, ethics, and more, its cities, and major segments of its people! We have no idea what awaits on the horizon! Jesus said it would be a time like no other in the history of mankind! Never has happened before, and will never happen again! But it will happen somewhere out there on our horizon.

And why does God do this!? Because He’s going to start over. He’s going to create the world as it were from scratch – and make it into the Kingdom of God, the government of God, upon this earth. Remember in Revelation 21:5 quotes Jesus as saying, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He starts by simply obliterating everything that is old.

The pages of the Bible are filled with information about this event! Now, I’ve said this before, but the Day of the LORD – without a question – is the single most prophesied event in the Bible! Bar none! Nothing comes close to it! And yet over the decades, I don’t believe that we of the Body of Christ have fully appreciated the magnitude of that Message. Jesus Christ in Luke 21:22 said, “’ For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.’” And those aforementioned ‘days of vengeance’ refer to God’s vengeance. We read in Hebrews 10:30-31 – “For we know Him who said, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord.” And that’s something we have to remember as human beings. There were different moments in my life where I wanted to exact some personal vengeance, and these words kept coming back into my mind – ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.’ And I simply stopped and went, “I put it into Your hands dear God!”

Well, remember back in Genesis 6 – the time of Noah? It says in verse 3 – “And the LORD said, ‘My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, …’” and he goes on to describe in verse 5 – “Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” – like 100% evil! Just rotten! Verse 6 – “And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7) So the LORD said, ‘I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, … for I am sorry that I have made them.’” And then he says down in verse 11 – “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12) So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. 13) And God said to Noah, ‘The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.’” He just wiped it out and started again!

Well God is indeed a God of love. That verse that many people love to quote, but you know it’s in the Bible, it’s the Words of Jesus Christ and those are our words too! “’ For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, …’” – to be a sacrifice for all of humankind. God has a tremendous amount of love! Jesus Christ so loved His creation and we His people that He risked His eternal existence to be tortured to death in order that we might have a pathway for salvation. That’s a level of love that I can’t grasp! But I’m very thankful that He did it!”

(Jacob’s Trouble by Michael C. Garrett).
In deep gratitude and love, in Jesus' name,
