Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. (1 Peter 5:8,9)
The latest exposure of the spying on Americans–of what we’ve already known for a long time actually–does take the focus away from noticing how individuals are already stalked and terrorized daily. Those who truly educate in this day are harassed for truth-telling. Fly a little too high without enough protection and one ends up like Breitbart, unable to get a job, suffer daily interference with your life, or get
audited robbed by the IRS.
But it is not just the electronic and physical stalking by our government; we are also stalked culturally, religiously, by nationality, gender, and personally/psychologically. The definition:
Stalking: a constellation of behaviours in which an individual inflicts upon another repeated unwanted intrusions and communications”. Stalking can be defined as the willful and repeated following, watching and/or harassing of another person. Unlike other crimes, which usually involve one act, stalking is a series of actions that occur over a period of time.
A stalking horse is a figure that tests a concept with someone or mounts a challenge against someone on behalf of an anonymous third party. If the idea proves viable or popular, the anonymous figure can then declare its interest and advance the concept with little risk of failure. If the concept fails, the anonymous party will not be tainted by association with the failed concept and can either drop the idea completely or bide its time and wait until a better moment for launching an attack.
The grinding attack on our culture as Americans, our history, our patriotism…take their toll. Prayer banned at military funeral services; the microphone shut off on the Valedictorian’s speech about the Constitution, the attack on family and traditional American values such as hard work, individualism, inventiveness, patriotism, and familty— almost everywhere we turn marks this beast.
The cultural war has been on-going for a while:
Add to this cauldron the Obama regime, whose participants and enablers are radicalized in an anti-American ideology, where it is typical to “Demonize your political enemies, then hire people like these [the Chicago crew]…
…and the result is precisely what happened in Germany after 1933 and what’s happening now to us: a kind of bureaucratic coup d’etat in which the legitimately elected government overturns the established relationship between the individual and the State and replaces it with something very different…American Thinker
What is most important to appreciate is the depth of the evil behind the stalking. It is the small ‘g’ little god of this world, Satan, who is the father of lies, confusion, and fear. This evil is manifested in people we can name and systems we can see and uncover. More has been exposed of this network in the last four years than in any time in history; this knowledge will never be lost and cannot be shut up.
Right now it is a spiritual battle and larger things than we know of are being worked on as we speak. And it is our task to be sober, be vigilant, be aware, use discernment, for willful blindness is all around us.
