SELLING OUR SOVEREIGNTY—WHAT WOULD LINCOLN SAY?

In 1861, a Republican leader named Abraham Lincoln took extraordinary measures to end slavery and save the sovereignty of the Union. He bore witness to this effort in his Gettysburg address. “That this Nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
In 2015, Republican leaders, following President Obama’s lead, are allegedly taking extraordinary measures to yield the sovereignty of the Union. Entwining America in a trans-national governance that ultimately aims to steward at least 75% of the global GDP.
According the clear warnings from Biblical prophecy—Daniel 11, Revelation 13 and others—the mature expression of this global governance could ultimately bring the entire world into subjugation. A global monarchy.
Selling our Sovereignty
“Government of the lobbyists, by the lobbyists, and for the lobbyists!” That’s how Sen. Ted Cruz described the bill’s driving force. “Another manifestation of what I call the Washington cartel.” On the Mark Levin show, Cruz talked of the backroom deals that forged TPA, and simply observed, “That’s not what Republicans were elected to do.”
Lamplighter family, you may remember the overwhelming sense of heaviness both Jolene and I felt over the Capitol at the beginning of the year. As the 2015 session began, we felt a satanic presence literally coercing elected leaders—offering money and power for allegiance and retribution for for their refusal.
At the time we couldn’t understand what we were feeling. But we warned that this is how Jesus—perceived by the devil as a globalist political leader—was tempted. “Bow your knee to me and all this can be yours!”
In other words, sell your sovereignty.
Bipartisan Warnings Ignored
We noted earlier that both Republicans and Democrats warned about the trade deal yielding America’s sovereignty. “Agreeing to ISDS in this enormous new treaty would tilt the playing field in the United States further in favor of big multinational corporations,” commented Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren in a Washington Post article. “Worse, it would undermine U.S. sovereignty.”
Republican Senator Jeff Sessions also warns that the deal, which forms a trans-national governance structure, yields American sovereignty. From his website: “The Congressional Research Service reports that if the United States signs on to an international trade agreement, the implementing legislation of that trade agreement (as a law passed later in time) would supersede conflicting federal, state, and local laws.”
Further, according to Sessions, Republican leaders in both the House and Senate signed away their Congressional authority this week to negotiate the final content of trade deals. “By eliminating its own powers of review and amendment, Congress would dramatically shift the carefully calibrated balance of power between Congress and the President,” commented Sessions in a Breitbart News interview. “Fast-track would ensure that the President has complete discretion over the drafting of international agreements Congress has never even seen.”
Let me close this posting by sharing a vision. Though I received this vision back in 2010, I have felt checked from sharing it publicly until now.
In the vision I saw the famous Iwo Jima statue, memorializing the famous moment when Marines hoisted the American flag into place during WWII. In the Pacific theater, specifically.
The statue remained bronze, but as I continued to watch the American flag became replaced by the flags of the world. Flag after flag after flag appeared in quick succession! When the sequence ended, the final banner the soldiers were thrusting into place was simply white.
I honestly don’t know the full interpretation of this vision. But I knew immediately it conveyed America’s journey into globalism, beginning in the Pacific theater. Not a coincidence that the first ObamaTrade bill is Trans-Pacific.
What does it mean? World War II was a fight for freedom. And at first, the globalist battle may seem to usher other nations into increased economic freedom. On a practical level America and other nations may greatly benefit from the emerging alliance.
And the economic ties will give rise to commensurate shifts in global values—regarding governance, family, etc.
But it’s interesting that at the end of the vision, the American Marines were holding a white flag. That’s the universal symbol of surrender. Conveying a warning that our sovereignty, and the sovereignty of nations, may in the end be yielded.
And a globalist monarchy, as prophesied in the Bible, may actually soon be at hand.
