Covenant and Controversy part 1


Covenant and Controversy Part One: The Great Rage from Covenant & Controversy on Vimeo.

This is the first of a series of three videos. The other two parts will be posted over the next week or two.

The videos can also be accessed and downloaded via the vimeo site by clicking on the “vimeo” logo at the bottom of the video.

I have downloaded the films from that site onto a USB stick, I find that format makes it easier for me to watch half an hour at a time rather than have to find time to watch it all at once.

I think the films are very well written and produced and I highly recommend them.

  1. I didn’t want to say it, but the above video (while it says a lot of true things) shows a growing sense of arrogance in its producers/participants. I realize many people won’t see it. Also, the makers could repent of that or correct it at any time. Thus, I didn’t want to say it.

    I appreciated, when reading at Steve’s blog (a few days ago), that he had the nerve to say Republican congressmen “need an exorcist.” Steve was covering a topic on the chaplain (a news story I tried to post but which did not get posted). But I think we are, in general (not only on that subject), seeing a ratcheting up of disagreement (or what the ramifications of disagreement are seen to be). In the video in sharing, this man says he thinks people who criticize (although this man himself points out he has been critical too) to hold Trump accountable are “demon-possessed” (4:06 – 4:16 — against being “conservative” or pro-Trump or enamoured with Trump being Christian). I haven’t watched all the way through yet, but watch from the beginning.

  2. I haven’t got a clue why you should think the “video shows a growing sense of arrogance in its producers/participants” and therefore why they should need to repent of that alleged arrogance.

    I have removed the video link you provided. I haven’t had the opportunity to see it (but I hope to do so later). Joel Richardson is someone I look to with a bit caution. I believe he has some very good insights, but he can also be distracted by “conservative” politics.

    I’ve previously said that I no longer want videos posted to the comments section of my blog. I don’t have the time to check them all out. If the video I removed from your latest comment is something I feel is worth sharing I’ll refer to it in a future blog post.

    From Steve’s article about Trump and the embassy in Jerusalem I picked up a very important point – that the Christian desire to “bless Israel” and to see their national leaders favour Israel, makes them susceptible to favouring Anti-Christ, who will ALSO (at first) show favour to Israel.

    That is one of the reason that we should not confuse “love” for Israel with unconditional acceptance of Israel and all Israel does.

    To me it seems clear that evangelicals are NOW very susceptible to an Anti-Christ who seems to be showing good will to Israel. They have also shown that susceptibility through their whole-hearted acceptance and promotion of a President who embodies the anti-christ attitudes of lawlessness.

  3. I’ve seen a few minutes of the video you posted that I deleted from your comment, and found that was all I could tolerate. What I saw was some of the worst aspects of Joel Richardson and also an example of the very kind of thing that I’ve been writing about recently.
    Richardson gushes about the actions of Donald Trump in recognition of Jerusalem’s capital – as if that decision itself is something that God needed to be able to proceed with HIS destiny for Israel.
    In my eyes that is a deluded belief, and I recommend that anyone who hasn’t yet seen it should go and read Steve’s blog article here:
    https://cross-purposes.blogspot.com.au/2018/05/jerusalem-ii.html

    It is disturbingly likely that anyone delighted by Trump’s endorsement of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, who see Trump as some kind of Divine envoy, will also, equally delight in a peace accord being struck between Israel and the man who will later be revealed as the man of lawlessness.

  4. I said, In the video [I’m] sharing, this man says he thinks people who criticize (although this man himself points out he has been critical too) to hold Trump accountable are “demon-possessed” (4:06 – 4:16 — against being “conservative” or pro-Trump or enamoured with Trump being Christian). I haven’t watched all the way through yet, but watch from the beginning.

    I think it’s important that readers know I had said, before that:
    … I realize many people won’t see [the arrogance]. … Thus, I didn’t want to say it.

    And:
    Then I ran across this:. {DELETED VIDEO}
    President Trump and Jerusalem in Prophecy
    The U… with Joel Richardson #82 57,323 views

    It’s important it not appear I might have been referring to the other person I mentioned in the same paragraph; with any hint of what was before gone, confusion was likely.

    I know not all people have the particular discernment I was referring to; in fact, most don’t. I wouldn’t have said a thing about it until there was more evidence that was likely to be noticed. (As you know, many people aren’t able too see what you saw either.)

    {The article about the chaplain being asked to leave the House of Representatives (which was rescinded when people were shocked) wasn’t something I posted under this topic. Curiously, a reaction to that was people saying we don’t really need a chaplain there — and that not having one would mean not having to decide what kind or what he or she could say.}

  5. So, this is a link I clicked on at another time. At that time, the first topic was the one you’ve now linked to directly. Yet, then as now, multiple topics were queued up.

    This isn’t the article I tried to post elsewhere (which I tried before seeing Steve had written anything about it at his site). I believe Steve is likely right, and Joel is woefully wrong.

    …….

    All the allegations, denials, walk-backs, “spin,” hypocrisy (especially by Republican champions of “religious liberty” who really aren’t), hints of religious prejudice, etc., etc.: par for the course.

    Maybe the spiritual needs of the current “conservative” House of Representatives are ‘way greater than a Chaplain can handle.

    I’d suggest the “spiritual needs” of the current House of Representatives House require an exorcist.

    I recommend praying for them so those in office might have the courage to put Trump out of office when it comes time to impeach him. And there are all the ways they should uphold justice rather than disregard their responsibilities for law and order.

    As for the direct link about the day of moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, I certainly agree we must be wary of the egotist who raked in praise.

    😏 It would also be relevant as the next comment under the following topic.

    https://onesimusfiles.wordpress.com/2018/05/17/who-steers-prophetic-history/
    It seems that US evangelicals in high places think they can bring about fulfilment of God’s prophetic word through their own manipulations.

    …….

    Maybe the irony will be that their manipulative acts might bring on that fulfilment……..

    Incidentally, my rereading your entire presentation of the article you linked to there and so on answered a question I have wondered about (without getting around to asking it — although I do remember making a statement in a comment section [I think the airie-fairie one] stating my own “answer” or view in this regard). The question would have been whether or not you think we can hear people who aren’t Christians, or even aren’t devoted to any religion, when they are horrified by current religious events or religious wranglings. Actually, I suppose we don’t know whether the author/s of the article have a particular faith. But they wrote in a secular venue. Agnostic isn’t the same as secular (while secular allows for the agnostic), but a video I included a link for (along with my statement) 😏 expressed the anguish and outrage of a person who has taken the time to identify what evangelicals and their cohorts are pushing. He saw the irony.
