BINDING THE STRONG MAN
Bertrand L. Comparet
There is nothing out of date about the Bible. Its clear
distinctions between good and evil, its rules for human conduct and its laws for
the government of the nation, are as valid and as vital today as they ever were
in the days of the prophets that wrote them. It was written then to be read now.
Far more of its prophecies and warnings apply to this present time than were
aimed at the times in which they were written. This is equally true of both Old
and New Testaments, they are both part of the same book and each confirms the
other. We would do well to heed them.
When our ancestors founded this nation, they were
Christians who recognized the eternal validity of Yahweh's laws. They were aware
that only in obedience to our God could the nation survive. Under the guidance
of such men, the few colonies with their small and scattered populations grew to
become the mightiest nation the world has ever seen.
All the power of ancient Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, and
Rome, the empires who ruled with force and cruelty all the world they knew, were
insignificant compared to the majestic might we enjoyed just 15 years ago. How
did it happen that we have now fallen to the point where we pay heavy tribute
money to communist Yugoslavia and Poland? We try, with whining pleas and bribes,
to curry favor with Ghana, Indonesia, Cuba, the Congo, Tunisia and Ethiopia,
meanwhile whimpering to anyone who will listen, we just can't survive without
the help of these weak and helpless nations. Haven't we even one man in
Washington who can understand, unless these nations have the courage and honor,
to fight for their own freedom even though they stand alone like Finland, they
certainly won't fight for us because we pay them bribes? How can we have fallen
to the point where we just wince and yelp when Castro kicks us?
Only by allowing the anti Christian to corrupt us, to
lead us away from Yahshua and the Bible, has this happened. No enemy army
crushed our power, and no foreign government has conquered us. Our own rulers,
those whom we trusted to lead us, betrayed us. What comfort is it that traitors
were few but dupes were many, the result is the same? Yahshua warned us not to
let this happen. He said in Mark 3:27 & Matthew 12:29, "No man
can enter into the strong man's house and spoil his goods except he will first
bind the strong man and then he will spoil his house.
Who will do this treacherous act, is it an invader who
binds the strong man? No indeed, it is done by anti Christians who have
infiltrated and corrupted our nation and gained places of power within it.
Yahshua said in Matthew 10:36, "A man's foes shall be they of his
When we were the strongest nation in the world, able to
set the entire world free, we allowed the infiltrators to create that evil
monster, the United Nations. Then we surrendered our strength to it as to a
conqueror. Since then it has done us no good, it has only weakened us and has
begun to destroy even our internal liberties. We have been officially told that
we have lost the power to decide who may own land in this nation, because that
is contrary to United Nations treaties. Yet, our citizens are still subject to
such restrictions in more than two thirds of the world.
With deceptive treachery, the U.N. proposes the so called
Human Rights Covenant and Genocide Convention, both of which if we are foolish
enough to adopt it, will abolish our Constitutional right to a trial by jury. It
will make any American citizen subject to be deported to some foreign nation,
there to be tried by foreign courts without a jury. The proceedings will be
under a foreign law, in a language he doesn't understand. He will be thousands
of miles away from the people he might need to call as witnesses in his defense.
This, not because he had ever entered such other countries and violated their
laws, but for something he had done here in the United States, which is
perfectly legal under our own laws!
Did you think that could ever happen? Wake up! False
accusations are an old, favorite means of disposing of a political opponent,
especially by left wing groups. So you expect justice from such a court, if
brought before it? Don't be silly! The prophet Micah describes the lands where
our patriots would be tried on trumped up charges. "The devout have
vanished from the land, not one honest soul remains; everyone lurks for the
bloodshed, each man preys on his fellows. They have quick fingers for foul play;
the judge must handle a bribe, the high official acts as he pleases and between
them they battle justice. The best of them are no better than briars, the
straightest are like thorns twisted in a hedge."
Do you think that couldn't happen here? Wake up!
In three different recent years, here in the United States, the so-called
Military Government Teams have conducted practice seizures of American cities,
in which they displaced the civil government. They set up concentration camps,
issued proclamations threatening to close schools, churches and suspend the
newspapers. All of this was done under the United Nations flag and in
the name of the United Nations. Their proclamation stated, "The laws of
your country which conflict with our Military Government polices, will be
suspended. You will have to function under international law."
They listed many new crimes for which American citizens
would be punished. Among these was publishing, circulating, or having in
possession with intent to publish or circulate, any printed or written matter
hostile, detrimental or disrespectful to the military government or to the
government of any other of the United Nations.
Remember that Soviet Russia and several of her Red
satellites are members of the United Nations. As a free American citizen, I will
certainly continue to publish and circulate matters hostile and disrespectful to
all communist governments. If our enthusiastic supporters of the U.N. have their
way, I will face a firing squad for daring to tell the truth. So far have they
gone, these blind worshipers of foreign rule, in their desire to destroy their
own nation, that every true American patriot who wants this country to remain
free and independent is smeared as isolationist, reactionary, or even Fascist.
Treacherous members of his own household, who would help
his enemies steal his freedom and his wealth, have truly bound the strong man,
our beloved nation. The time still left in which to set him free to defend
himself, is desperately short. This could never have happened to us if we had
obeyed Yahweh's laws and heeded His warnings.
Yahweh promised us in Exodus 19:5-6, "Now
therefore, if ye will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall
be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people; for the earth is Mine. And ye
shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.
The penalty for setting the demands of admitted minority
groups, above the laws of Yahweh, is severe. Hosea 4:6 tells us, "My
people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected
knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to Me: seeing
thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
"For lack of statesmanship, a nation sinks." Proverbs
"For the leaders of this people cause them to err;
and they that are led of them are destroyed." Isaiah 9:16. The
Bible's message is not to the individual alone. A large part of the Bible is a
message to the nation, which only the nation can keep. It reports many instances
in which disaster came upon all the people, the multitude of individuals,
because they had allowed their nation to follow the paths, which lead inevitably
through corruption into ruin. What the nation must do is to instill
responsibility in each one of us, as individuals. We must use all our power to
direct the nation into the right paths. Otherwise,
we suffer the disaster, which comes upon the nation.
This is the time for each of us to obey the warning in Isaiah
58:1, "Cries aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet and
show my people their transgression."
If each of you will do your part, it isn't too late yet!
