FRANCE AND GOD
Continuation of the chapter 8
The way of the nations
2) Where is placed France?
This introduction towards the political world highlights how much we must feel concerned by the life of our nation beyond political management itself. The onus is on any Christian to seek the balance of God for its environment, without entering in judgment towards whoever. God wants to bring to each one the best, and does not want imbalance between the head and the body, the more so as in a democracy we are at the same time member of the head and the body.
If we do not have to condemn anybody, we do not have however to bury our head in the sand on the bad collective behaviors that the policy generates. The mercy of God is to guide us towards the best and not to let to us be inserted in contrary ways with His. That implies that nothing will be done without conflicts, because in opposition to the faith there is always a share of our flesh that is opposed to it. If this faith is managed in all humility according to God, it will produce balance in the long-
This is why our historical parallels try to bring an interpretation of the carnal dimension to which we are subjected, when we walk with bias. God is not God of the “parties”, but of truth in all man. These images, which we defend bitterly like big cats, are those on which we are dependent beyond humility in which God wants to lead us in Jesus-
If it is the demonstration of the Christian superiorities that motivate us, they are not any more those of God who lead us! Just like Israel, quite willing to the reigning Jesus, but did not accept it suffering, us Christian, we frequently act in the same way by seeking an appearance of lords, but especially not of the lords of humility. We aspire so that God expresses His royalty, provided that it is our standing that is increased.
Our first reason should be to love us one another as He loved us, and not to let us lead by our flesh in preserving the image that Satan inculcated to it, in the pride and the superiority of a king. The image that we prefer is then not that which God gave of Him in humility through Jesus, but that of “the man king” who reigns on his kind as if there were no tomorrow and who redistributes his crumbs to the poor. The only equitable royal share in us, is in the human dignity to which has right any individual in an approval of the Spirit and not of the flesh has, in the respect of ourselves. God not wanting men with dubious manners! He wants our respect, one from the other, just like the respect of ourselves, but never in the superiority. We are besides of royal class higher than Satan, only in the measurement of HUMILITY in which we are in Christ. We are inferiors to him in all points if not, never forget it.
How right is it easier indeed to follow our collective consciences based over centuries of experience, than on the faith in which it is necessary for us to advance in full water without really knowing to swim.
It goes from a man like nation. If a nation prefers to resemble a rich “head”, which reigns on the other parts of the miserable body that are two thirds of our planet, she prefers to act like Louis XVI who preferred to nourish itself, and to redistribute only her crumbs to the poor. What would happen then of a nation and the whole of our world, if we all were in Christ? Would we find always normal to privilege some compared to others? Which criterion would we use? This of Jesus, whereas His word is to love even our enemies? This is why beyond our various national collective memories, which lead us to left or right-
It isn't a secrecy for anybody, the richest nation of the world that are the United States, imposes of qualities to the other peoples that it refuses to put into practice itself. It denies itself for example to go to great expense of the change of energies, but in addition wants to be the head of our planet, whereas it is itself Christian from its constitution and by the dominant one of its people. Isn't this there a deep ambivalence?
We do not have in that to make the lawsuit of this nation, who is currently the perfect example of the faith managed by a carnal psychology. Their ideals are often creditable and did not escape besides Karl Marx with respect to Abraham Lincoln. It however does not come out less from it than these people that often individually seek the will of God in the Spirit, reacts carnally to excess in their presumptions of acquired invulnerability of their ancestors English, who negotiated since centuries with a monarchy that they kept like the floret of England.
This is why the United States continues to structure their country according to their English ancestors while elevating richest on a much higher level, even if this system generates a lot of underprivileged. In their foreign relations, they behave mainly as a lord of the ground, because they learned how to operate to arrive at the first places, and continue to do it among the nations. They act as if their position of leader gave them the right to become Seigneur and Judges of the world, whereas it gives them opportunity and the duty to put charity into practice, in the fundamental behavior: To refuse the competition between nations. They now manage their republic like a royalty on the world and often drag the people of Israel to be made in the same way, it which preferred to promote a king in the place of its God, but was invaded by the empires Persia then Roman.
We do not have therefore to cast a stone at the United States, because the carnal image that leads them, proves they are only men made to the image of God, like each one among us. The royalty is not a man question, it belongs to God. From the “man king” who represents the splendor, the man passed to the kings of the finance, the industry or the data processing, which reign on the world, but the references whose each person could draw from "its good", made him forget this one of Jesus and the poor Lazarus. (Luke 16-
And a certain poor man, named Lazarus, was stretched out at his door, full of wounds, Desiring the broken bits of food which came from the table of the man of wealth; and even the dogs came and put their tongues on his wounds.
And in time the poor man came to his end, and angels took him to Abraham’s breast. And the man of wealth came to his end, and was put in the earth.
And in hell, being in great pain, lifting up his eyes he saw Abraham, far away, and Lazarus on his breast. And he gave a cry and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me and send Lazarus, so that he may put the end of his finger in water and put it on my tongue, for I am cruelly burning in this flame.
But Abraham said, Keep in mind, my son, that when you were living, you had your good things, while Lazarus had evil things: but now, he is comforted and you are in pain. And in addition, there is a deep division fixed between us and you, so that those who might go from here to you are not able to do so, and no one may come from you to us.
And he said, Father, it is my request that you will send him to my father’s house; For I have five brothers; and let him give them an account of these things, so that they may not come to this place of pain.
But Abraham said, They have Moses and the prophets; let them give ear to what they say.
And he said, No, father Abraham, but if someone went to them from the dead, their hearts would be changed.
And he said to him, If they will not give attention to Moses and the prophets, they will not be moved even if someone comes back from the dead.//
Jesus raised from the dead, but each one let is itself modeled by the faith for as much? This is why it is so difficult to the “rich person” to enter in the kingdom of heaven, whatever the source of its richness, material, intellectual or spiritual. This richness weighs on any Christian who prefers to agree to his collective memory more than with the Spirit of God. In the same way, the monetary imperialism, which seeks to keep the head of the world, acts with the image of a king who enslaves the whole of the peoples. It should rather seek best evolution for each one, and to give to God one's complete confidence and freedom to deal its own incomes. The result would be completely different.
The lords of yesteryear perceived a crowd of the taxes on poorest, to build fortresses that protected them. Thus, to preserve their position of world leader, the United States requires the effort of new energies nonpolluting of the poorest nations, knowing these equipments involve an investment four to five times higher than traditional energies as petroleum.
They refuse to divide the expenses which would not enable them any more to keep the first place, and prefer to agree to a globalization from which always arises a “first ” which is believing itself gaining, whereas we become all losers in front of God. They are otherwise misused by misleading appearances, when their crumbs are redistributed by NGO, which nourish their national clear conscience of large Lords. The domestic policy is in approximation identical, and is more like a “forced march” subjected at the policy of the profit than a “walk near a quiet river” in a will of social mutual aid. As long as the first world place is theirs, this social does not do too much movement, which amounts to think in the majority that they are being blessed of God. Human dignity to which we gave the right to remain of royal size there are some lines, would however apply to good number from them, because the underprivileged classes however do not miss.
The bases of value of many Christians is indeed distorted by an erroneous image of the success, because at the time of the Judges His people preferred the man instead of God, and deprived us of the example that God wanted to give to the world through an institution guided by Him. Israel made it to seek the image that was suit to him from which we are still marked.
We will thus take the arguments of those who want to become strong, rich and powerful, and will concede to them that to be able to come to assistance of unhappy, it is needed is not it, oneself. Did one however never see poor sharing his only piece of bread with poorer than him?
Charity is thus not a question of richness but of heart. The richness of a man do not lie indeed in the gold that he can pile up, but in the integrity of his heart. This American people isn't it that which France helped to free oneself from the English yoke and it returned it to us to the centuple, there is no more few decades? This is why we must look at this wonderful people like a victim of its collective memory developed like idolatry beyond the precepts of God. If we cannot it, we must request it from Jesus who will show us their traps, but also our wrongs. If we cannot forgive their traps, He will not be able to forgive our wrongs, but if we implicate us of our wrongs, He will not allow that we let ourselves allure by the covetousness of a division in our favor, shares of the world cake. He will return us it in His time. This attitude, which can be the trap of the United States today, is a race to supremacy going back to another age.
Jesus told us in (Matthew 24-
And news will come to you of wars and talk of wars: do not be troubled, for these things have to be; but it is still not the end.
For nation will be moved against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and men will be without food, and the earth will be shaking in different places; But all these things are the first of the troubles.
Then they will be cruel to you, and will put you to death: and you will be hated by all nations because of my name.//
Don't you believe to hear to talk of war, today March 20, 2003?
For me, I hear these talks of war. Perhaps do we enter a new era today? The future will say it to us, but we can believe that it is not yet the end. “A nation will be moved against another nation... But all these things are the first of the troubles", then let's rather look at the importance of a good attitude, so difficult to adopt between Christians as we have just seen it, and who more is, between Christian nations.
For you who read this passage only now, undoubtedly is you witness that the end of the world was not yet for this time. On time where I wrote this passage, it had been already sixteen months that I had started to write this book, and there is today more than two years that all the structures of these writings are defined. What I could not provide at the time of the first line of these writings, was on the one hand this conflict the United States/Iraq, but on the other hand the position even of our President Jacques Chirac and can be even less the ninety percent of the French who would give him reason before this engagement.
As it happen faced with conflict American / Iraqi, France could have justified a humanistic peace led by the non-
It was not the case, not more than one act of cowardice, quite to the contrary, because it would have been much easier to say one yes unreserved to president George W. Bush, than to be opposed to its excessive reactions. It was on the contrary an unshakeable will to regulate the things of this world in an opposite way to those which always brought only misery and desolation in everywhere and in all times. France thus took the way of the future dimension in Jesus-
The glance that we carried in the preceding chapter on the various Christian polemics, to then level them by the fact that as a Christ we all are priests, were there for showing the need to not act by sour criticisms between nations compared to the international conflict bearing on this subject, and the secret reasons for certain.
What must preserve importance for us should not be the polemic of the motivations of each one because we all will be judged by God, but quite contrary individually to seek the communion with our God in Jesus-
Any empire, any human hegemony, always finishes by its self-
To the day when this man, of a fragile psychology, is felt betrayed, he turned over against them all the potential and the formation that he had received from his former instructors to destroy them. He used and can always use, the same tax havens as his former “partners” to maintain his terrorist networks, without count on the almost intensive culture of the poppy on “HIS Afghan soil” under the glance of each one and without nobody being able to really intervene.
After this September 11, a violent war against Afghanistan was very understandable, but nonetheless on Iraq, for strategic reasons of another kind, the same attitude was preserved whereas the tax havens, so often dirty money launderers, created by a dominating monetary system on million the poor of the whole world, are not called into question.
Wouldn't this be firstly of that the United States and ourselves should start ask for us forgiveness in front of God? If we look to the mental state of M. Bin Laden or M. Sadam Hussein, what difference does he have with any other mentally disturbed person, who for example will kill those he had most cherished, by impotence, resentment or any other bad human feeling?
Nothing! Only their monetary power and their media impact were different!
When we agree to a human supremacy, or even the capacity to become it, to certain who sometimes have the monopoly of a country by a personal richness higher than the whole of people, we agree to any possibility of deficiency of this person or organization carried out by him to reign on this people. Isn't It thus on the world by the level of the micro processing of Mr. Bill Gayts, since the United States themselves had to start to limit him?
We fortunately have in his person, somebody psychologically balanced seems it, because let's imagine only one moment, when he was questioned, that he be to the image of M. Bin Laden, where would us be today? But who can say, in the facility and glory, how it will react tomorrow in the suffering, the disease, the mourning or simply the feeling of rejection, which can be of each one of us because of a difficulty lived at one or two years old, and which remains lurked during the years of successes, patiently waiting its destroying hour? These men are the human ones, and far from me the idea to overpower them, but their construction is identical to that of anybody, except that their capacities are different. Then, rather than going until the fatal outcome, wouldn't it be better for each one than the common sense prevails in the ways of God?
We easily assert our affiliation to Jesus-
We saw it and re-
The United States are therefore entered in a carnal reaction in front of their difficulties; this is why each of the two antagonists has acted with its image of the good. M. Bin Laden, with the image of “his avenger god”, the United States with their image “of the king god self-
It goes from there sometimes differently individually, but what arises from the collective spirit is thus, and each one cries over its own losses. What do we however make good, to cry only deaths we cherish, whereas we should cry those of the two camps, if we would have love for our enemies as Jesus taught it to us? If we see misfortune only on our premises, without also seeing it on the level of our “enemies”, once again we mistake the enemy and put men made at the image of God in the place of Satan.
The God's image is perhaps for some, more deformed than ours, but do we must for that, to assimilate them to the damned that we must exterminate? Do we act then according to “burning Coals”? Let there be no misunderstanding about that, any man will not be obligatorily saved, but we must be the lawyers of those who are losing, not their torturers. If we cannot have the compassion for those who suffer, that they be “good or bad”, American or Iraqi, it is undoubtedly that our carnal national self-
These rivalries are starting mainly from our collective memory, which is renewed much less quickly than our human memory. It is indeed scientifically proved, that our cells are renewed every seven years, and if we simplify the things and take as human life expectancy seventy years, we realize very easily that the human being renews ten times more quickly than a nation. It is not anyway a very erroneous thing in our current France, since this life expectancy is at 79,44 years for the total population, 75,8 years for the men, and 83,27 years for the women. Therefore the incidence of our behavior of the moment, plus our psychology that is born of our first years, will bring a resultant in our life, which will persist at least ten times more in a nation.
It is necessary for us to remain moderate in certain parallels, and to look at the things in their logic, without entering into mathematical demonstration of the facts. If we take for France and Europe in general, the bases of Christendom being situated around year 800, that was the apogee of the surge evangelic produces by Charlemagne on a great part of Europe, France represents today a person of which real-
The French collective memory therefore corresponds to a person real-
If we carry out a verbal war because of this small divergence of opinion, we would forget the way in which we ventured when, about our “twenty-
We must calm these comparisons which do not have anything an absolute nature, because even if the general direction is not completely false considering it is about a collective memory, the image which we could to come out from it to the first degree, would be as incorrect as to deny the total parallel. Attention thus at the origin of our presumptions of richness! We already spoke about it of the one who is believed rich, that it be of money, knowledge, spirituality, wisdom, of youth, any carnal richness is not from God. All that we saw thus and will see still as advantages for France in the carnal field, will remain to our advantage only in measurement or will spiritually we manage it WITH Jesus.
The love does not escape from it especially, as we saw in the preceding chapter, since there is not in “the initial love” of the man, the true dimension of Love, even if it is given to him the capacity to reach it. This is why the Christian world more than all other should not especially enter in the judgment, since it is the only one to have a true access to the Love of god, and that often it employs it so badly itself. It preserves the received images of the great men or the capitalist ideals that it studied, and it prefers to cover the precepts that God asked him to express towards his neighbor.
In present Christian psychology, which remains collective idolatry of the search for great men who promise the moon, but who are the only ones to go there, we still makes look at the rich person like the one that we would like to resemble, whereas Jesus says to us, it is the one who oppresses you. If today we seek the money like due or on the other hand condemn rich people, we will reproduce their errors tomorrow. If we act thus, the image that leads us or that we fight, is that we seek! How will be able we to separate us of it in our flesh, since it is of its covetousness that we got out our conflicts?
It is what arrived more or less at Karl Marx. Educated by a Jewish father became Pasteur, his knowledge of the bible led him to confuse God with the religions because of the bad received examples of the kings raised to the divine nature. He preserved only the biblical ideals of his childhood, but in a practical application opposed to that of which it had been disillusioned, to see perhaps betrayed. Let us look at indeed from what, he could got out his ideals: (acts 4-
And with great power the Apostles gave witness of the coming back of the Lord Jesus from the dead; and grace was on them all. And no one among them was in need; for everyone who had land or houses, exchanging them for money, took the price of them, And put it at the feet of the Apostles for distribution to everyone as he had need.//
These indications of the lifestyle of these first Christians, do not allow us to transpose anything from their experiment to the structure of some society. It is obvious they didn't stop nor to live, nor to work, although that is not mentioned.
They are the dimensions of our human nature on which all these philosophers supported so many theories, which prohibited to the apostles to grow their community, and certainly not their personal integrity, nor that their close relatives. What put an end to the lifestyle in that they had entered naturally as of the first days, was them all and their nature, therefore: Us!
Us, because of our flesh! Us, whom God likes as far as the people that He has chosen to become manifest to the whole world to which He wanted to make known himself, so that a day, the majority of those who seek him in the Holy Spirit overrides the minority.
Through this account God however does not bring to us a model of society to structure by ourselves, but for Karl Marx who had rejected God because of the image that they had received from all monarchies all over the world, he had concluded this we know. This human Utopia, drawn from the lure that the covetousness of the man was due only to the lack of social equality, thus let hope to many million men and women sincere, whom no one will not try any more to dominate over the other in an ideal society in which the richness would be equally shared. This new universe would thus see disappearing gradually the need from a government so much the man would live happy and satisfied, because in an quasi-
It is this ideal which all our philosophers materialists, sought to set up by “socialism”, exterminator of the rich person or by nowadays “socialism”, in many intellectual compromises of society. They had not realized that in the love based firstly on the financial equality, it is the money the engine of the love, whereas alone the true Love of God can lead to a form of equality and lot comes from the heart, it is the opposite, and it is that the apostles lived.
Satan could then definitively discredit the handling which it foments since this embryo of Community life of the apostles, so that the man can never yearn for what God wants to give him like haven of peace. He made realize by the man in “his” dimension, which God wants to give us in “HIS GLORY”. What exists indeed of more subtle than to push us to refuse by an example lived in his falseness, therefore as wobbly as possible, which God can set up in an extreme truth and uprightness. We briefly tackled this subject in the chapter “the flesh, the war”, and can distinguish the method which he used through the three evolutions English, French and Russian: More are remained the feudalism in a nation, more it produced excess of violence and a communist reaction. It resisted little in England, a progressive evolution accomplished itself without too many adversities and violence, leaving at each one an image good to excess of the human royal attitude. It was more retained in France, and it was the first revolution in communist matter. It was completely blocked in Russia, and brought the exterminating Communism in its true size. Satan did not have any more than to push in the back of the revolutionary system, hundred carnal percent which he had created, to make it more or less permanent, until its self-
There is only little to add. From both initial “socialisms”, the first brought by the Marxist, became Communism and the other democratic “socialism”, gave rise to current socialism. What was done in communist Russia in an ideal of equality, is what we could call “the socialism coarsely carnal of Satan”. Current French socialism, started from a similar ideal but more moderated, being itself dissociated of Marxist “socialism” at the beginning of the twentieth century, is led as for him by “a humanistic ideology” whose carnal dimension is disguised better. This ideal is certainly a pale reflection of what God wants to build by his Love, an image still rather vague of the things to come, a little as the attitude of the tepid Christian that we already saw in connection with the faith that God could give to Charlemagne.
We must not to blame anybody, because undoubtedly we could on the contrary ascribe this verse of Luke 16-
The French as many Europeans, easily associates the socialist values with the Christian values. They resemble curiously each other at first glance, since the socialist laws of mutual aid to the persons who need it most, seem to give reason to the love of its neighbor. Each one of us, can however understand itself that if the rules of God firstly aim at rewriting the spirit of the man to bring it to the dimension of the practical application of the love of its neighbor, it is by no means the case of the socialism that remains in carnal education, as can do it any religion. The socialist attitude faced with the human problems, could be compared with that of Peter in the garden of Gethsemane, when he cut the ear of Malchus.
We will not go deeper into the values between them, our motivation not being to defend or blamed the current socialism, nor even the name that it represents for some, but will keep this interrogation however in each one of us: As Christians, must or not we give reason to an ideology turned towards the love of our neighbor, namely to divide our bread with the one who is hungry, on the level even of the nation?
The fact of dividing its bread with the one who is hungry is indeed complementary with our verse of introduction: “For to him who has will be given, and from him who has not will be taken even what he seems to have”. If the share, which is given, comes from the abundance of the heart, then God will multiply this abundance, but attention, the reciprocal one is true…
We don't have to support a party more than another, because we already saw it, God is not the god of the parties, but of the men. We must look to the errors of each one without condemning anybody, or doing better than them. It is obvious however that if Satan gave himself so much difficulty to make discredit by the man, the dimension that God wants to give him to bless him, it is that he has very to lose there. The bad examples that Satan has to bring to us through the Soviet Union, and now by a French “socialism” , even more deprived of common sense than the Union-
This is why we can conceive that it is not right according to God to turn us towards a competition between nation to knowing to be stronger than the others, while giving each other clear conscience by the support of some ONG. The finality of the God's Love is in our balance and love of our neighbor, so that just like to the time of the Acts of the Apostles, each one can say “Because there was among them no destitute”. Social peace is a spiritual need, and those who get peace are approved of God and are called “sons of God” (Matthew 5-
It is thus important to agree that the support of God goes in the direction in which His permissiveness is the least distant from His nature even. We do not note it in order to seek the profit of it to disobey, but in the hope as well as possible to approach us near the perfect will of God.
Just like we together made several historical causal relationship, look to a more recent that it is in the memory of much, which were during decades, the confrontation of the two imperialisms, capitalist and Communist. Although remained in a notorious carnal dimension, American capitalism always turned to God, whereas the Soviet communist imperialism had entirely banished God of all its ideology, until trying to erase it from thought of each one, because of the bad image that they had received of Tsars. The communist ideology entirely agree to the carnal common sense of the man, was thus entirely rested on what Satan controls best, as we already showed. The exit of the conflict east/western could thus have of another exit to confirm American supremacy and it is also a proof of the objectives of God.
If the USSR couldn't thus be gaining, the same thing does not apply for France, therefore of Europe, and it is an opportunity that God gives us to comprise us right or badly. We have the chance as French and Europeans to belong to people who received carnally from his ancestors an image very close from that God wants to transmit to humanity to bless it, if we manage it with His assistance. There therefore, where there was conflict between Soviets and Americans to the advantage of latter, Europe this time will succeed, above all not in the adversity towards the United States, but IF it is as a whole opening to the Holy Spirit of God.
God promised to His people that it would be the head as long as it would remain in His ways, therefore equitable towards all. One does not have however to expect a progression immediate and fulgurating, but perseverance in the ways of God will be for each nation, to start by Israel, the success for the good and the happiness of humanity, even if we must beforehand live through lean times. We do not have to seek the victory over anybody, but to keep the hope that each one will be able to line up itself under the banner of Jesus who will be Glorified of it. This victory we must obtain it against the enemy of our souls and not on men or peoples to which we allot all the infamies of mankind, under the fallacious pretext that they did not inherit a collective memory hundred percent identical to ours, but of that of the United Kingdom for example.
If Europe, can come in “nuance” to this American supremacy, we must not forget however that the goal of the Prince of this world is there to make us enter if possible by a carnal competition which would adopt either same the rules, or of the completely opposite rules, such as religious fundamentalists would do it.
We do not have to enter in rivalries with anybody. We already underlined it, God gives the first place to the one who makes His will, like He says it in His word, but it is not him who gives it to the one who seeks it shameless, not more than with those who believe not to need Him. In a permissive semi-
It is that God did not give up France, nor its desire of justice and equity, even if compared to our churches, France somewhat gave up God, and yet…
Let us look at together what arrives at French. If, from our revolutionary antecedents we have preserved this absurd and reckless carnal share, it is necessary for us to look at further, and in particular to the image of God who built himself in us, therefore our “good”, just as some others of our neighbors. This image is not that of “big victorious God”, through the great men that we must be, even if we easily become it. Always apart from this revolutionary spirit, but perhaps a little because of him, the French received an image of God sympathizing towards the poor one and the one who suffers, even if it often seeks the opposite for itself of it.
The image of Jesus or that of the poor Lazarus is thus much nearer to the biblical texts in the European peoples than in the United States in general, reason for which the American results often to seems thumb one's nose to the Europe. Sometimes that gives to French the impression that God forgot them, if they believe and hope still somewhat in this God for their nation. Others arrive even to say “if God existed”, He could not allow all the exactions and calamities which exist all over the world.
God approved absolutely not these last words, and even if He doesn't have grudge against the French to whom He still asks to persevere in waiting of the return of Jesus, he awaits from us other thing. He knows that for the major part, it is only the incomprehension, one lassitude to the sight of all human miseries and all over the world, because many of these French who disavows Him, seek as well as possible to practice His precepts in their life. They refuse to believe in him and especially to show their attachment of Him, but they act mainly to the way in which God asks it. The heresy then results from the fact that all these good wills produce only lowering of those that they would like to raise, because God resists to the haughty that the French became. He simply asks them to turn to him, so that it reveals to them that this pride is located in their revolutionary spirit, which gives the impression of “Greatness”. See how much it is easy to bear grudge against God rather than us. We thus have a great advantage on the level of the good image that we can have of God, but an enormous disadvantage on the level of the faith.
We placed it for some in a form of industrial catechism in Saint Simon manner, who was at the origin of current socialism, and for others in their humanistic presumption of raised spirits, who see in charity what differentiates the man from the animal. The faith in God is lacking to us, because although our research is in the rules instituted by God, we often prefer to manage them by ourselves, and to give pleasure at each one we prefer giving reason to the sin rather than to keep confidence in God alone. As in any man there are tops and bottoms, let us hope that we are in bottom, even if it remains strong to fear that we pass by low more again, so that we are constrained to make the right choice.
If it is not enough to be turned us one day in seven toward God to be a good Christian, and that it is preferable to seek the permanent communion with this God of Love, whichever our attitude, it is extremely dangerous to think to be the one in charge. God resists proud firstly who acts thus, which lets any open door to the untrue revelation of Satan.
A little as one postulate, we will thus retain, that difficulty for us French is to continue to have faith in God of humility, such as he is drawn in our soul during the passing of centuries. We then prefer to divert us of God rather than to lose this image, even if it is him who put it in our hearts and he asks us to persevere again in this dimension beyond what we would like to see being carried out on earth.
Good numbers of Christians all over the world, expect a new dimension coming from France. It is perhaps for that, the two groups policy right or left arrive to the same conclusion or almost: French people is not any more agreement to put poorest aside to the profit of richest, and each one is obliged to take account of it, even if individually all want to be rich. The one who governs is not any more the head by a government with the image of person of note, but the people, the body that rebels against the head as soon as this one rations it too much. Attention, which balance continues to reign!
We thus will examine the phenomenon that is arrived at our nation in order to understand the trap that the enemy would like to snap shut on us.
God wants to indeed use France for the return of Christ, in recognition of the impulses of heart of our Fathers who followed it and honored Him, and by whom Christendom was established on whole Europe. If today we are turning away from him and act by ourselves, by our flesh, it will not be Him who will lead us in a humanistic peace. It will not be then because of a failure of God to bless us, which we will not see His Glory, but because of our disobedience to seek Him.
You know that it is wrote that it will come an Antichrist, and John apostle said it to us at the first century, he is already in the world. This Antichrist will reign on the world during three years and half, and one will then say peace, peace, peace. It will therefore not be because of the war that we will say peace, peace but well because of a peace of simply human concession. Now, (1 Thessalonians 5-
I think this explain sufficiently well, why we should not especially condemn the United States or Israel in their carnal dimensions of today, even if their image of the good, pushes them contrary to us. And if they were rightly? Would we be those whom would dare to make a lawsuit to God?
When the enemy cannot any more retain us to make the evil, it pushes us to do “too much” good, this “too” being our carnal share, therefore anti-
We had emphasized it, through the ten plagues of Egypt, before taking a real position for the Just and to get it out from house of bondage, God informs the malicious one beforehand lengthily in order to allow him to enter in repentance. If it comes out from our parallels that the United States must be called into question in their carnal lords attitude, head of planet, it equally flows from it than France too often forsook Jesus our Savior, to the profit of a human ideology managed to: The image of tepid that God will vomit.
We are thus not better than other, and one doesn't go without the other for tending towards balance that God reserves to us. Our road is similar to that of a couple which does not have the impression that we will live together the universal panacea, but in which we can realize that the asperities of the one will take part in the polishing of the other.
Humility precedes glory. Attention that our justices be not simply human and turned against God, but that they be accomplished WITH Jesus! We already saw it, the one who does not assemble WITH ME SAID JESUS, DISPERSES!
Before closing this chapter, it remains us to look to the attitude of a last political orientation French extremism. Hidden in a primary carnal attitude, such Hitler who was putting the blame on the Jews, this political group shameless affirms to have for model, Jeanne d' Arc, but overflows of racial hate towards the Jews and the North Africans. These known as North Africans, often descendants from Abraham by Ishmael, did not come to steal us our work, as their accusers say it. On the contrary, they are our ancestors who went to invade their grounds for better exploiting them, and then led them in Metropolitan France to use them as cheap servants.
In this small description, each one could recognize the extreme right, whose operating processes do not differ of anything with the extreme left. It doesn't take to bury one's head in the sand in front of any problem, wasn't it similar to ours, in Israel at the time of Jesus, by the presence of these exiled Samaritans to whom He often paid homage?
And he said to him, What does the law say, in your reading of it?
And he, answering, said, Have love for the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and for your neighbor as for yourself.
And he said, You have given the right answer: do this and you will have life.
But he, desiring to put himself in the right, said to Jesus, And who is my neighbor?
And Jesus, answering him, said, A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he got into the hands of thieves, who took his clothing and gave him cruel blows, and when they went away, he was half dead. And by chance a certain priest was going down that way: and when he saw him, he went by on the other side. And in the same way, a Levite 1, when he came to the place and saw him, went by on the other side. But a certain man of Samaria 2, journeying that way, came where he was, and when he saw him, he was moved with pity for him, And came to him and put clean linen round his wounds, with oil and wine; and he put him on his beast and took him to a house and took care of him. And the day after he took two pennies and gave them to the owner of the house and said, Take care of him; and if this money is not enough, when I come again I will give you whatever more is needed.
Which of these three men, in your opinion, was neighbor to the man who came into the hands of thieves?
And he said, The one who had mercy on him. And Jesus said, Go and do the same.//
1) Levite : descendants of Levi, they had responsibility in the service of the tabernacle, sanctuary of God, the most holy place.
2) Man of Samaria: inhabitants of Samaria. They were colonists that king of Assyria had sent to populate the country of Israel after the captivity. This is why the Jews hated them. They had their own temple on the Gerizim mount. Christ, to emphasize Jewish intolerance and their carnal attitude, treated them with much charity.
These “Samaritan” exiles that we can name “North Africans” to use an open language, are those whom we went to invade in North Africa to bring grounds to our colonists to the time of Saint-
They were considered people of second order by the majority of no "North African, even if it were not the comportment of all the “black feet 1”. A very small minority of Moslem could get out from the position of flunkey, without speaking about the often-
1) Black feet: Name given to the inhabitants of French origins in North Africa. Algeria invades very violently in 1830, remained French until 1962. Until this time reigned a basic difference of the rights between the Moslem Algerians and from metropolitan origin.
Let us not be surprised that they have rejected the Christian values, because they found their rules better than ours, their heart having been touched only by our contempt and not by the grace of God through us. The errors of a man are that of a man and he must repent of it, but the errors of people rest on each cell that we are. Of how many errors identical to that which I will tell to you now, we should ask us forgiveness to these always “exiled”, which we maltreat yesterday in “our place” therefore at “in their place” since they were themselves “French”.
I was approximately seven years old, and my father, electrician craftsman, had a quite old prewar small car that he was using as well as possible for his building sites. One of his carpenter friends had a brother-
A people are not different of the man, and we have to repent us of all these exactions and many others as nation. If we want to receive the blessing of God, it is initially necessary to know to recognize our faults, and don't impose it only to the Turks for the Armenian genocide. We cannot say in so far as in the F.L.N.1 there were only good acts, but saying us Christian or Christian peoples, where we can go, if we behave contrary to what we teach to the others, are not surprised that God doesn't give us reason.
1) F.L.N.: Front de liberation national, one of the main political parties, established as a resistance movement in 1954, at the start of the war for independence.
We do not let misuse by untrue words of Satan, which give reason to hatreds, which they are racial, cultural or spiritual. Let's wait if not, to have ourselves to undergo them one day, “by the grace of God”, so that we can repent of our own faults.
Let us remember that humility precedes glory, but that even and especially in this glory, as long as the return of Jesus will not have been achieved, the enemy of our souls will try to enter us in excess. That wants to say that once France will have awaked to the faith in God, Satan will try to push us to do everything like coming from God. Still let us remember that it is not to the bold word of a man or people, that one recognizes his faith, but to his works. The one who has works, does not need more to act in the name of God as many assert it so easily, because his works speak for him.
But the one who does not have works often speaks as foolish, forgetting the third commandment of God given to Moses: (Exodus 20-
The presumptuous and temerity, are carnal feelings which lead easily to the use of the name of God in vain. They are often employed for better masking certain weaknesses or not acknowledged homicides, which the man uses in his timidity to increase better his standing in the eyes of the others. Primo Levi speaks very well about the human eloquence and the plagues that it can convey, no doubt he had learnt it to his costs, provided that we all can take it into account : “All, we must know, or to remember us that when they spoke in public Hitler and Mussolini were believed, applauded, admired, adored like gods. They were “charismatic chiefs”, they had a mysterious capacity of seduction that didn't owe anything to the credibility or the accuracy of the remarks that they held but which came in the suggestive way in which they were making them... It is thus necessary to be wary of all those whom want to convince us by other ways that by the reason, in other words charismatic chiefs: We must well weigh our decision before delegating to someone else the power to judge and want in our place. (…)
It is certainly possible to make rise much men in the name of God, but Jesus especially did not say, you will follow the one who will have best spoken about me, it said “one recognizes the tree with his fruit”. Without thus seeking to justify these writings, I will act in the same way, and will keep to me to say that all these subjects are of God, even if I hope it. I don't believe that it is a cowardice from me to defend what I believe just, but knowing the one who refuses any error will be limited in all, I accept this possibility to be able to advance.
Cowardice is often the unsaid, implying that all was always perfect in us, whether it acts of a man or people. The weakness is in the deterioration of situations of which should ask us forgiveness. It is the example of France with North Africa, and in particular Algeria, in front of which we owe so many wretched acts to the image of this colonist, there is some lines.
We live in the third millennium after the achievement of the law by Jesus, and they are such barbarous acts not even worthy of much of our ancestors, who make us people so little respectable for these other nations.
We imposed ourselves on these, like overlords, to the image of the behavior of the United States towards a great part of the world today. As long as we do not denounce these faults, our attitude proves these errors are right. How will God be able to justify us? How will we release us from all ways of the enemy? How will the United States be able to be released from their current visceral anguishes, and present since this fateful September 11? How will Israel be able to live without this obsession of all these suicidal attacks, which are these human bombs? How will all these Palestinians be able to rebuild, without fear that the Jew bulldozers do not come all to shave their efforts once again? How will the world which looks at us, will be able to turn to Jesus, to lose all these fears and anguishes of becoming, faced with all these famines, epidemics and cataclysms? How will all these spiritual drivers be able to lose their fear from people gossip? How will all these fathers and all these mothers be able to continue to procreate faced with the threat their children perishing in the pollution of our world?
In the repentance to have so often to assert our rights in front of an aggression, rather than to look to our duty between human, done everybody to the image of God, asking us forgiveness each other. Forgiveness of what our nature is not better, than we be rich or poor, black or white, than we have knowledge or not, than we believe in a God or not! Because we assert all to act in his name, while acting contrary to what He taught us!
This highlights well I believe Seigneur, when we sin against our similar, like says it your word; it is actually against you who we sin. Let's stop our rivalries, and He will be able to come to bless us!
After all that we have just said of these kings and all these men who so often employed the name of God in vain, and sullied in that His Holy Image, we will formulate the hope that anybody doesn't agree never again any man born of woman, to rise the crowds in the name of God. That each one, covered with patience, awaits with hope the return of the Lord, in humility towards its neighbor, craving to perceive one day, what Job proclaimed, saying “I have heard of you by the hearing of the ear: but now my eye sees you.”.
This dimension will never be obtained by being made the war one against the others to justify a haven of peace on earth whatever extermination it is. It can be obtained only in JESUS-
Each one, knowing that any people act to identical to the individual, we will thus finish this chapter by two letters, that a day a woman who would be named France (as it is the case of my Mom) could have written to her friends and brothers by adoption Isaac and Ishmael, both sons of Abraham. The first representing the Jew people, the second the Arab people.
That the Lord blesses us all, French and others, and to him be all Glory! Amen!
