October 13, 2019
God bless you, folks! God bless you, folks! Please, please, be seated! Today is a beautiful day! We're blessed by God with gorgeous weather, and if you brought your Bibles, because it is Sunday, I want to invite you to read with me in Psalms 19.
Psalms 19, we will start verse 1. It's a beautiful Scripture, because it talks about the glory of God seen through creation. And yesterday of course, we talked about how the Bible and our American Founding Fathers made us kings. That's a whole other thing, and I'm not going to get into all of that today.
But we're going to start with the root of where our kingship comes from, and our kingly sovereignty comes from as sovereign peoples; that comes from Almighty God. So let's start at Psalm 19; if you have it, please join me in reading together.
“1- The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork.
2- Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge.
3- There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4- The line has gone out through all the earth and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5- Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6- His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7- The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8- The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9- The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10- More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11- Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12- Who can understand his errors? Cleanse now me from secret faults.
13- Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14- Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my Redeemer”
Praise God! I want to start with that, just because it's so important and critical to root ourselves in the Word of God. Our Founding Fathers, our Founding Framers, 98%, of them were affiliated with Protestant Christianity; as we talked about yesterday, protesting the centralized nature of government, the centralized nature of the Catholic Church, the centralized nature of institutions in general. The right of kings, the sovereign rights that we enjoy America, we don't usually talk about them in biblical language, or in king-like language; we usually don't talk about them in such ways.
But we have a lot of folks from Asia, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, as well, Philippines, that have come for this event, and they know, and we always share when we talk with one another, that in their countries they don't get to be armed, folks. It is not a way of life for them; they do not have that right.
Our family was freed from North Korea by the US forces, when my father was freed from Hungnam death camp in 1950; so we understand the nature of evil and communism to our core. It is part of our nature to understand and rebel against the wickedness of socialism, communism.
But we see today in this land, in the U.S. - I was born here, but my parents fled North Korea- it's shocking to see how many of the youth and young people gravitate towards socialism; 60% plus say that it would be profitable for the U.S. to become a socialist country. I'm grateful for our community, and our young people who train with us, and who are responsible citizens, who learn firearm safety very early on; they learned Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and knife and stick fighting skills and things like that. Why? Because the Bible calls us to become shepherds in the image of Christ! 1st James chapter 5 talks about Christ as the chief shepherd, and that he will give us the crown of life.
These principles are so incredibly important; many times we take them for granted here, in this great country. I want you to look around, and see all the folks that are gathered here, may be from different countries, that you meet for the first time, and just understand, they don't live with the right of kings as we have in America!
They look at- and I'm not trying to make you guilty, or anything- they look at you with envy, not an evil envy but a desire to be free. And the groups that are here are fighting for a second amendment in their countries; we have Mr. Alan Kwan who made the famous sign during the Hong Kong protests just about a month ago, that said, “Hong Kong needs a second amendment!” He's here! That brother is here with us, right here, today!
So there are patriots around the world, because if we believe that the right of self-defense is natural, and is given to us by God, then all human beings must have that right of self-defense against tyranny. It is a natural out flowing of the natural course of nature, and God, the Creator of that nature in creation.
Again I want to welcome all of you to the Rod of Iron Freedom Festival, at the beautiful Kahr Arms property here, where we celebrate America, the Second Amendment and the culture of responsible armed citizenry. Praise God! Praise God, folks!
Hey brother! I think I saw you at the anti-abortion rally, right? Praise God! God bless you, folks! God bless you! God bless you, sir! Thank you for your service. Thank you, sir!
I also want to thank all the veterans and all the first responders, and anybody who participated in any of the wars abroad, that fought for people's freedom that you did not even know- you did not even know these people, some of them are my people, that you did not even know- and you laid down your lives. You fought and sacrificed so that we could be free in those countries. I am so grateful, and I want to give them a big round of applause, please, this morning! You're literally the reason why we were able to be born! So we are we are truly, truly, grateful!
We hope that you’ll enjoy all the fun and cultural festivities, because you know one thing that is exciting about freedom and liberty is that it's amazing; it's fun. We have responsibility, but it's also fun! And that's why we're so excited.
We want to thank also all the vendors that are gathered here, all the food trucks, and the folks that are right behind you, that are also celebrating the Second Amendment, because this is like a Kingdom culture. God describes in his Kingdom, not a centralized tyranny that rules over the world.
We can go to the Scriptures; if you have our Bible, you can go to them, but if not, I'll just go right to them. For example, in Psalm 2, God says :8- Ask of me, and I will give you the heathen nations for thine inheritance, and the ends of the earth for thy possession. 9- And you shall rule them with a rod of iron, and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.”
The roots of private property and the ownership of the earth, is rooted in Scripture, is root in theBible. But of course if we are educated or indoctrinated in public schools or government schooling from different countries around the world, we are taught the total opposite. We're taught that we should not be able to own land; we're taught that this vast creation is a living being, Gaia, a goddess that we are harming, and we are the disease. This is an actual ideology that is being taught to young people. We lose root of our relationship with the Creator, with God Almighty, from which our rights derive, and from which our freedom and liberty comes.
I want to thank all the vendors, volunteers from security to medical, to warrior games, to food, to fireworks, from planning teams to coordinating teams; we deeply appreciate all your work and hard effort in making the Rod of Iron Freedom Festival possible! Homeland Security's here, Pennsylvania State Police is here, sheriff's apartment here! Thank you guys! Medical is here; God bless you! Fire Department is here! Thank you so much! We love you! Thank you for your service!
Once again, our family and worldwide church community celebrates freedom this weekend, this day, because in 1950 my father, Reverend Sun Myung Moon, was freed from Hungnam death camp by the US forces on October 14th 1950. He was preaching the Word of God! And if it wasn't for the US Armed Forces, we would be stuck in North Korea, and probably would never have been born.
All the soldiers and armed defenders take this oath that is seen in the Gospel of John. In the Gospel of John, Jesus himself describes the greatest love and he says,” There is no greater love than this, than to lay one's life down for one's friends!” Every single man who serves like Craig or Tig, all these amazing heroes, real GI Joes, real heroes that we can actually meet and physically connect with, all these folks take this oath. And I would say all citizens who are armed take this oath as well. All armed defenders take the oath that, if need be, we will lay down our lives, for people we don't even know or maybe even disagree with; but we will be a first responder.
This benevolent type of love is at the core of the shepherd to his flock, and the father to his children. This godly loyalty and love is at the core of our Founding Fathers, giving us a country where we can live free, and have the rights that only kings could historically enjoy: the rights of freedom, liberty, and the right to bear arms in defense of ourselves, our families, and our kingdom communities.
When we think of the biblical God, we may not think of arms and weapons as we reviewed yesterday, but when we look at the Scripture, and are honest with the Scripture, we read thatJehovah God, Himself, in Genesis, is the creator of the first weapon. He arms a cherubim at the east side of the Garden of Eden, after Adam and Eve have fallen and are now being cursed because they have come under the dominion of their new master, Lucifer.
Throughout the Old Testament, God gives the command to destroy nations that are an abomination to Him. We heard words from Craig, who is a Navy SEAL pedophile hunter! He's the scariest thing on this side of Heaven against the wicked! Praise God! God bless you, sir! Craig, what a man of God! He was sharing that his father was a pastor, and just served theLord, loved the Lord, and filled him with that godly example. We're so grateful, grateful for that!
In the Old Testament, God commands to destroy the nations that are an abomination to him, nations that practice sexual licentiousness, and murdering their children. And in the New Testament, Jesus states in Matthew 5:
"17- Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I'm not come to destroy, but to fulfill. 18 For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one title shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19- Whosoever therefore shall break one of the least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of God. 20- For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter the kingdom of God”
In John chapter 2, we see that Jesus manufactures a weapon. Jesus the perfect man, God in the flesh, is overwhelmed by holy anger. He creates the scourge, a nine tail whip with blades on the end, for the express purpose of assaulting the money changers in the Temple.
In Luke chapter 22, Jesus states to his disciples, “Sell your cloak and buy a sword” which was a military grade weapon, which civilians were forbidden to possess.
And in Revelation chapter 19, Jesus comes, “to rule the nations with the rod of iron and smite them to pieces, treading the winepress and the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”
This fear of the Lord and the fear of God is the beginning of all wisdom. This honoring of God and understanding his glory, understanding his power and his love, is the beginning of morality. But the fallen world is trying to cut this transmission that our Founding Fathers deeply adored the Scripture and held to a godly ethic; this is being cut from transmission from one generation to another.
All around the world satanic centralized governments are trying to convince us that we are not made in God's image that we are not his children and heirs, as the Bible says. Have you ever stopped to think what it means to be an heir of God Almighty, a co-heir with the King of Kings, a king and a priest? Have you ever reflected on the incredible magnitude of that?
They are trying to convince us that we are slaves and servants, to a master class and a master system. This insidious God-hating indoctrination, begins at an early age, when we are taught the truth of atheism through the illusion of evolution, cultural relativism and moral relativism; that we are born not of a Divine Creator, but rather that we are, through a series of cosmic coincidences, born of a single-celled amoeba, and then a crustacean, and then a reptile, and then a mammal, and then in a Gibbon ape.
The theory of Darwinian evolution is so pervasive that according to series of studies, 62% of Jews and Christians were shown to accept materialist evolution of plant and animal species as a proven fact. This is atheism, folks, that is creeping into the body of Christ! This question of cosmic identity is not insubstantial, for what we believe we are, determines our destiny. If we believe we are an ape, we'll act like animals. If we believe we are made in the image of God, and He calls us to be kings and priests, then we are called with responsibility to be as the King Shepherd, to be in the image of the holy priest of Melchizedek, who is Christ Jesus.
This question of cosmic identity is not insubstantial, for if we are merely animals, it is not a sin or a crime to rule over us, and to coerce us into totalitarianism, fascism, socialism or communism. It is not a crime! After all, the rulers are simply herding animals. These systems of oppression are rationalized as being good for the common man, and are to be seen as common sense systems for human flourishing. Of course ironically, they only produce the exact opposite: massive poverty, massive human suffering, and genocide.
In the 20th century alone, secular atheistic governments have murdered over 220 million of their own citizens. Marx, Hitler, Mao Zedong, the Kim regime in North Korea, were stupendous admirers of Darwin and his dehumanizing theory of evolution. Marx dedicated his book Das Kapital to Darwin, writing; “To Mr. Charles Darwin, on the part of his sincere admirer, Karl Marx!” Hitler, stated: ”Let me control the textbooks and I will control the state!”
In Hong Kong, millions right now are screaming for freedom and the right to self-defense, as they are being gunned down by Communist Chinese. These Communist Chinese adhere to this ungodly heresy and are trained to be atheist.
These examples may all seem very distant in the past, or far from the United States, but some of the most powerful politicians, and companies like Google and Facebook, who rule over us as emperors, like the emperor Cuomo in New York, see China as a proud and successful model of atheistic secular social engineering, and population management. These are some of the top leaders in the United States right now, folks!
Given that, I will argue that this dehumanizing atheistic worldview, and the inherence to the mythology of Darwinian evolution, is not based on fact, but rather on a demonic desire to place government above God and his children.
Eight reasons why Darwin was wrong:
Number 1: In The Origin of Species, chapter 6, 'difficulties on theory’ in Chapter 9, ‘on the imperfection of the geological record’, Darwin himself admitted that, if the fossil record did not turn up the missing links that he needed, and future discoveries did not show a slow and gradual progression of more and more complex species, his theory was then wrong.
I want to invite you, folks, to look around at this beautiful landscape and the turning leaves, and all the ecosystems and natural elements, and insects and the animal kingdom that is alive around us.
Since 1859 the totality of the fossil record has expanded by 1,000 times. It is assumed to be very nearly complete, and can be accurately analyzed for conclusions, because sufficient evidence is present for scientific accuracy. If evolution was true the number of transitional fossils should far outnumber the resultant species, as Darwin stated, “The number of intermediate and transitional links between all living and extinct species must have been inconceivably great;” but there are none! Gradual changes of one species to another do not appear in the fossil record; species appear fully formed, which of course does not substantiate the atheist claim, when it in fact, supports the Christian claim of an intelligent Creator.
Number 2: The Cambrian explosion: In a relatively narrow window of historical time, 2% of a timeline from the Big Bang till now, of about twenty to twenty-five million years, almost all animal phyla that you see and don't see, or groups of most living species suddenly appear. After this explosion of new creations, fossils change very little over time, until they go extinct or survive.
Darwin was puzzled by this pattern in the fossil record, and stated that it seemed to document the geologically sudden appearance of animal life in a remote period of time. During this period many new and anatomically sophisticated creatures appear suddenly, in sedimentary layers of the geological column, without any evidence of simpler and central force. All this evidence before them, and yet they want to claim to atheism!
Number 3: In 2009 a review article in The New Scientist observed that The Tree of Life Projects depicted in almost every single government school in the world “lies in tatters, torn to pieces by an onslaught of negative evidence,” Michael Denton, molecular biologist stated. Despite the tremendous increase in geological activity in every corner of the globe, and despite the discovery of many strange and hitherto unknown forms, the infinitude of connecting links has still not been discovered, and the fossil record is about as discontinuous as it was when Darwin was writing The Origin.
Again, our children, our grandchildren, are learning the opposite: an unscientific ungodly view, atheism shrouded as science!
Number 4: At the Wistar Institute symposium attended by numerous Nobel Peace Prize winning scientists and mathematicians, papers on mathematical challenges to neo-Darwinian theory of evolution were written, and one scientist, Marie Eden, showed that it would be impossible for even a single ordered pair of genes to be produced by DNA mutations in the bacteria E coli, with five billion years in which to produce it. This estimate was based on five trillion tons of the bacteria covering the planet Earth, to a depth of nearly one inch, during five billion years. The genes of E coli contain over a trillion bits of data. Eden also showed the mathematical impossibility of protein forming by chance.
Again confirming the intelligence of God, the intelligence of the Creator, the structure and architecture of creation; not a cosmic coincidence, folks! ‘Fake science,’ as our president would say!
Number 5: In 2015 the Nobel Peace Prize in Chemistry was given to three men who discovered that DNA can repair itself, when it is incorrectly copied during cell division. They discovered three different abilities of DNA to repair itself; for every 1,000 incorrect copies or mutations, at least 999 would be successfully repaired. These discoveries make mutation as a source of change, which is one of the pillars of atheism in the guise of science and Darwinian Theory, even less mathematically possible
Number 6: DNA: there is enough DNA in the human body miraculously created by God, to be stretched end to end and reach to the sun and back 300 times. A pinhead of DNA that God has created, has the information content of paperback books stacked from the earth to the Moon 500 times! All that information is not random; it is meticulously coded.
Number 7: Irreducible complexity: Michael Bay, a biochemist, in his book Darwin's Black Box: the Biochemical Challenge to Evolution, states that, “if a system is irreducibly complex, you cannot take away any single piece at all, because if you do, it doesn't work. For example, a mousetrap has five working parts; if you remove any part it does not function. It cannot be accidentally assembled by a slow and gradual process of one piece at a time; nothing functions until the total assembly is completed. In the same way, our bodies are created.”
Number 8: Bacterial flagella and their propulsion system: there are forty proteins that are involved, meticulous, intricate detail to design; the system is assembled in an orderly sequential fashion and it finally functions similarly to an outboard motor on a boat. He writes, “Manufacturing machines build other molecular machines as well as themselves; cells swim using machines, copy themselves with machinery, ingest food with machinery. In short, highly sophisticated molecular machines control every cellular process. Thus the detail of life are finely calibrated, and the machinery of life enormously complex.”
Folks, this is the glory of God, the incredible mind of God! When you look out into this creation, even though we don't see it, there is a metamorphosis happening. Over 20,000 species of butterflies, and all of them go through metamorphosis; insects, fish, amphibians, certain mollusks, crustaceans, and other marine animals, also go through metamorphosis.
It is a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in the animal's body structure that technically is referred to as ‘metamorphosis’. MRI scans have revealed what takes place inside a cocoon during metamorphosis: the caterpillar turns to a liquid- like substrate, and then within a few weeks emerges a totally different, fully formed and functional butterfly.
In butterflies this process creates totally new structures; from the dissolved cells of the caterpillar, it produces reproductive organs, a compound eye that can see a larger range of colors than the human eye, a proboscis, a feeding tube which emerges from the cocoon in two halves and then is seamed together, six articulated legs that have sensors that can detect a mate or host plant over a mile away, two tentacles, wings with veins and scales, all the muscles needed to fly, demonstrating the glory of God, demonstrating the intelligence of our Creator!
Darwin's slow and gradual process of change could never account for an animal turning from caterpillar liquid to butterfly, in a matter of weeks.
The Word of God shows that we are not animals, folks. We are the apex of creation, made in the image of Almighty God, the Creator of the entire universe. We are his children and it is his desire for us, that we, who love God, will be fruitful, multiply and have dominion over the earth!
He promises us in the Psalms, that He will ‘give the heathen nations for our inheritance and the ends of the earth for possession, and that we must rule them’ in a poimaino rule. The Greek word poimaino here, means ‘shepherd- like’, ‘as a shepherd’. So, God calls us, as armed citizens, to be in his image as the chief shepherd.
The Bible says in Psalm 23, that:
1- The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. If you know it, you can recite with me.
2- He leads me to green pastures, and besides still waters.
3- He restores my soul: he leads me on the paths of righteousness for his namesake.
4- Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5- Thou prepareth a table before me in the presence of my enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6- Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever!
Folks! That is the injunction of Almighty God, the Creator of the universe! The lie that they are telling our children, grandchildren, that they are beasts and animals and come from amoebas and chimpanzees; this dehumanizing ideology is meant to do one thing: to separate their faith in God, to separate their relationship with God. Even through science, you can see the glory of God is demonstrated, and the heavens declare his glory, creation sings of his glory. You must be blind to see creation and not think that an intelligent Creator has produced this; and of course it is the most un-mathematical, unscientific proposition.
God calls us to be kings and priests, folks, not to be mere people roaming this planet, not to just be citizens of a nation. He says in his word, “Jesus Christ the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth has loved us, and washed us from our sins by his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion forever and ever! Amen!”
That is what the Scripture says!
So as you celebrate and bask in the glory, and as you come out to the gun range, 600-yard beautiful range, shooting your ARs, AKs, and whatever else you got, remember what the Rod ofIron Kingdom is! God's Kingdom of responsible, armed citizenry, loving people, protectors, defenders; shepherds who are humble, who know that we are sinners, saved by grace, now trying to do our best to be like him, our Father, our glorious Father, who has given us all this and all these!
God bless you folks! Welcome to the Rod of Iron Freedom Festival Sunday! Have a great day! God bless you and God bless America!
