Confederate - Covenant of Honor
“If Americans wish to preserve a country they will recognize, then the first step is to recognize the enemy. Public education is the enemy. The entertainment industry is the enemy. The corporate culture is the enemy. The advertising industry is the enemy. And most of the politicians in both parties are the enemy. An enemy is defined as anybody, or any organization, which is attacking the traditional beliefs of Americans.”—Charley Reese
Scripture tells us there is nothing new under the Sun. Human nature is the same today as it was in the infancy of the Old Testament. And that includes those who covet power and control, using or abusing every device at their disposal. Thus why we are commanded to be "watchmen" - ever vigilant to be the clarion call against evildoers. Our duty is to deny their advancement to protect life and liberty.
The past century has produced the most significant political, economic, and cultural changes in our history. Unfortunately, worthy progression in select areas has been overshadowed by transgression in too many others. The masses are gradually being institutionalized from Judeo-Christian values. They were first lured by compromise, which opened the door of forced tolerance and political correctness. Now they are conformist and don't realize it, which is a shame because even a dead fish can go with the flow.
A conformed society is a contaminated society, where good is oppressed while evil is exalted. Every institution is infected by this radical subculture who dismiss all rational thought and incontrovertible truth. This is especially true regarding vocabulary, as words are redefined or persecuted.
One particular target of unrelenting torment is the term Confederate, to include Confederacy and Confederation. As arguably one of the oldest and respected words in human history, Confederate has been systematically demonized and thus made a pariah in today's societal language. Even the most vile four-letter words draw less attention and scorn.
Confederate is not a Southern concept or even a Founding Father's principle. Its origins go back to the beginning, starting in Genesis 14. One can easily draw a parallel to the current conditions in our country. For those who recall scripture, this is where Abram rescues his nephew Lot from his captures.
Because Lot coveted the fruits of Sodom while ignoring its wickedness, he and his goods were subdued by the Chaldean and Persian invaders who had vengeance to all descendants of Canaan. Though Lot was righteous, he tried to thrive among evil and thus succumbed to their will. Honorable men do not live among the wicked, but instead separate from their evil because discernment and wisdom compel us.
Verse 13 reads: And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.
This tells us a few things. First, we see Abram's knowledge as to Lot's dilemma. And to free Lot, Abram is confederate, and forms an alliance with these other men. This is Abrams only account of military action, taken only as a rescue measure and not goaded by personal ambitions.
Taking his trained servants who understood both the art of war and Godly principles, Abram freed Lot and brought back all the subjugated people and their goods from the evil rulers.
Even more important to note is what follows. All glory is given to God for deliverance, and tribute through tithe for his grace. But Abram has one more hurdle, the King of Sodom. The king wants the people yet sets the spoils for Abram. Abram knows the king is political, and senses a "quid pro quo" should he take anything. He instead refuses, lifting up his hands only for God's mercy and rewards. But Abram does acknowledge the independence and sovereignty of Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre by letting them decide for themselves if they want possessions or not.
This is the true nature of being Confederate and being part of a Confederation. It is an alliance with like-minded individuals or groups while respecting their independence and sovereignty. It is a Biblically-based virtue ordained by God, not some moniker conjured up by irascibles looking for trouble.
The question now is, in this era dominated by evildoing Marxists, are you truly a Confederate or a dead fish going with the flow? Do you feel like a lone voice in the wilderness, craving righteous alliances to repel their continued invasion and restore our culture? Do you believe in independence and sovereignty? Do you believe in sacrifice?
Just as important, are you involved with institutions that claim to be Confederate but refuse independence and sovereignty within? Is your "Confederate" institution controlled by self-aggrandizing politicians who resort to threats and intimidation to force your compliance while refusing to really engage the enemy? Have they eliminated sacrifice as a beloved virtue and necessary component against cultural genocide? Has your "Confederate" institution been so hijacked and redefined that it has been "fundamentally transformed" from resolute to retreat? Does your "Confederate" group actually operate as a benevolent dictatorship, trampling traditional beliefs?
Do you anguish to separate from petty, yet tyrannical politics?
If so, this is a clarion call to all Confederates - men, women, and our youth - who feel abandoned and disenfranchised. You do have a choice. You can continue your membership as herded sheep within your faux "Confederate" institution or you can free yourselves from their centralized, hypocritical chains. You can stay immersed in their never-ending, narcissistic political campaigning to fill an empty-suit seat or you can separate and become part of a real alliance whose only "campaign" is to deny the enemy our culture.
The choice is yours.
......and from Craig Maus:
I am reminded of the simplicity associated with Our Beloved General, Nathan Bedford Forrest, whose Military Genius is ‘quietly’ but always studied by those in the Military Colleges of War such as West Point.
Do YOU think he would tolerate the NONSENSE being exhibited by ‘those’ on this side of the Mason-Dixon if he were here today? Remember his ‘simple’ Military Philosophy?
“It is NOT my intention to take ground and hold it….it is my intention to DENY IT TO THE ENEMY SO IT CAN NEVER AGAIN BE CROSSED! Never Stand and Take a Charge…Charge Them To!”
General Nathan Bedford Forrest
PS- Who do YOU think ‘represents you today?
The Braxton Bragg’s or the Nathan Bedford Forrest’s.
Who do YOU want representing YOU is a better question?
