Thoughts on Military Insignia – Christian Thoughts
Any avocation, hobby, like collecting military aviation wings, a man undertakes, rises from the core elements of ontological substance which God gave each of us to, without question and without variance, even among those anomalies like identical twins, grant to us that unique character our very own, which can be recognized and affirmed by those who experience us in the course of our lives. We are a Body of mankind with myriad skills and propensities to be gradually revealed in our living, that we may find our most effective and fulfilling part to play in the tapestry of society relative to how we can Bless the lives of others and receive that Blessing in return of remuneration and affirmation of character to be in accord with the moral foundation we choose. I find it so lovey that in Exodus 28, in the first few Chapters it describes some of the first insignia utilized as Aron, Moses Brother was commissioned to serve God as His Minister. The insignia was created by men through “wisdom” given in Grace to the metal workers and other artisans.
Exodus 28:1-3 (KJV) 1 And take thou unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron’s sons. 2 And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother for glory and for beauty. 3 And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
This “wisdom” alluded to in the verses above was the practical application, to the insignia and garments, of the elevated awareness and grasp aesthetically in the Artisan’s heart and mind, of the “Glory and Beauty” which God had bestowed within Creation. These insignia and uniforms were then used by the Priests in their ordained “Profession” which was to serve God directly in revealing the Justice required for the sins committed, which was the foundation of man’s relationship with God. While Old Testament Saints were not brought fully into the Light of Revelation regarding the Messiah, they were STILL given the Seed of Righteousness which gave them birth into Spiritual Life and thus the Faith which rises from that Life unto a grasp that God ultimately is the Forgiver of Sins, but they knew NOT the whole scope of God’s soterial Plan. David reveals the extent of OT knowledge of salvation from sin being NOT the animal sacrificed but fully in the Grace of Almighty God as He gives the Spiritual Life to ascend in Faith to a Truly Broken and Contrite Heart because the man had upset the communion with Life Himself…..Holy God. This is a rejection of Formalism alone without the heart condition spiritually, a condition which imparts the sacrifice with the true Godly Sorrow of One who has done damage to his bond with his First Love.
Psalm 51:16-17 (KJV) 16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. 17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
The insignia which a Godly Warrior utilizes as he enters battle in service to a Just God is a legacy of that first insignia used in service to the One who gave rise to the Glory of the Beauty represented in the symbols of Creation imbued to the wings of our pilots, a Creation He formed for His Pleasure and for us to take in Dominion under Righteousness in His name which is the Creed of the Righteous Warrior in offensive or defensive battle.
This was corrupted and obfuscated when the Crusades under the Roman Catholic system, which had nothing to do with Christ but man’s glory and sin alone, took the Name of God while at the same time locking within a dead language, the Word of God, and legislating it illegal to read the Bible, under pain of DEATH, in any common tongue, as they purported that the Bible “confused and corrupted” (actually freed unto Light and Faith and Life which led to the Reformation and the downfall of this Roman monstrosity) the minds of those who read it. This dark and all too humanistic regime was run under the domination of the precepts of Pride Lust, Power Lust and Pleasure Lust. Once the “holy warrior” was branded with this false attribution through the flesh based ignorance of the Crusades, the idea of the man going forth in God’s Name to defend the freedom to Live according to Righteous and Eternal Law under God was corrupted until the Reformation Warriors, fighting in and for the Truth of Christ’s Word, began to retake the lands of what had been Christendom before the rise of the humanist Roman Catholic Police State. Out of these men’s Faith and the Grace which they were allotted (Ziska, Procopious, Cromwell etc), was born the freedom which arose, to practice Righteous Faith without the conscience being brought under the tyranny of man. The true Authority or Rule of Faith (Guide to a man’s Faith) was reestablished as the Word of God alone after a 1000 year pall of darkness obfuscated and obstructed its Light. 1500 brought the Reformation’s initiation as the chains of the Roman Police State were broken by Christian Truth Rediscovered, by Grace Alone, from our King Jesus Christ as He put down the second Beast of the Sea (Holy Roman Empire) and Beast of the Land (Roman Catholic Apostatcy) and the Mark of the Beast which were the myriad Counterfeit Laws based in Man’s Appetites and NOT the Moral Law of God (The Mark of God is on the hand and the Forehead and the Mark of the Beast is the COUNTERFEIT LAW).
Deuteronomy 6:6-8 (NIV) 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
As a result of this freedom and the desire to find a land where a government could be established founded absolutely on Biblical terms, the Scotch Irish, Netherlanders, French Hugenots and Danes came to a new land to practice the FREEDOM which comes from living a life of Righteousness in Faith; Free because there are NO eternal moral laws against such life, so the conscience AND the people are FREE under God’s absolute care and Providence and Guidance in Scripture. The Colonies saw and lived this glorious Truth when they rose up against the tyranny of the MOST POWERFUL military might the world had ever seen, Great Britain…and won with a bunch of (Righteous and Godly) farmers, lawyers, shopkeepers, sailors, tradesmen etc. They then built a government with once purpose..to enact Just Law and enforce it and to Protect the population in times of threat….They built a 4 Tiered State…. Executive, Legislative and Judicial Government to distribute and protect Justice and the Church to Distribute Grace unto Salvation in the One Jesus Christ…..Where did they find this system and where is the foundation for its authority???
Isaiah 33:22 (NASB) 22 For the LORD is our judge, The LORD is our lawgiver, The LORD is our king; He will save us—
So the Reformation regained the Righteous Foundation of the Godly Warrior Fighting a Just War and doning the Insignia created by the finest of Artisans to depict the Majesty in Beauty and Glory, of the God they fight for. In the rise of a Humanist State and Humanistic-Arminian Religious foundation, this has been lost greatly as, for the Humanist lie to work, the elite in power push for the “Tolerance Misnomer”** fallacy. The elite first must strip the population (ESPECIALLY THE SCHOOL CHILDREN) of Absolute Truth in the Word of God/The Holy Bible, doing this by glorifying such creatures of the most deadly macabre such as John Dewey and Madalyn Murray O’Hair and then legislating against Truth/the Word of God, denigrating it in stature by glorifying sin/evil, even legislating the destruction of Marriage and the sexes by glorifying the perversion thereof in homosexuality (if they could actually do this). The elite in power then push their influence on the dumded down people, NOW IGNORANT of the Truth of Righteousness which protects one from being enslaved to sin by keeping them in the Light of Truth which frees them to do whatever their righteous heart desires. TYRANNY destroys the morality of a people so that they can rule through guilt and through severing the people FROM GRACE so that they look to the Beast of Tyranny to meet their needs. There is NO GUILT (which binds a man to judgment) in doing that which is Righteous and the Righteous man is under the fullness and rich Blessing of God Almighty’s storehouses Grace! The man who is told that ALL peoples’ beliefs are TRUE and to TOLERATE (govt definition-accept as TRUE) ALL OF THEM, stands on quicksand and is dead already spiritually, he sees only through the 5 senses of the flesh and believes only what they reveal to him and obey their every passion. He becomes dependent on the government because it can for a time provide what his flesh tells him it wants….until judgment falls on that nation and all is revealed in the Truth of Wrath.
The idea of a man venturing forth in a Righteous war with the glory and beauty of the insignia, was seen relatively clearly in the Wings of WWI, then the Humanism of America infected even the grand enterprise of the Godly Warrior and the wings began to be stamped out for the convenience of man and the faceless uniformity of the MANY (humanism) begins to destroy the Beauty and Glory of God using a particular man in a Righteous enterprise to lead a land of Righteousness unto Righteous ends and fullness of Love and Hope in the Word of God and Family. Humanism says we are a mass in identity and thus the individual is expendable in all things and useless. The lie is that ALL THINGS ARE TRUE so noone is more worthy than the other, WHICH IS THE ANTITHESIS OF REALITY AND the fact that AMERICA WAS BUILT ON THE BACKS OF MEN WHO STOOD APART AND TOOK INDIVIDUAL, RIGHTEOUS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE TASKS AND DUTIES GOD GAVE HIM EXCLUSIVELY ! The faceless useless place of the population is the goal of a tyranny so that the elite class driving the machinery of lies looks so elevated as a god ….Christianity says that each person Elected unto Salvation is precious enough that if they had been the ONLY one chosen to be Saved unto eternal Right Relationship with God in Justice and Holiness, Christ…God’s Son, would STILL have gone to the sufferring of the Eternal Wrath of God for their sins to cleanse them for Righteousness to have place in their heart, just as He would have Lived a Perfectly Righteous Life (Perfect Obedience to the Moral Law of God) to impute that Righteousness, declared to Jesus Christ by His Father, to that Elect for Justification and further, to be Infused to him over Sanctification. Once a man is in this place of Grace, they are ready to lead the institution which upholds society, which God uses as society’s very foundation and that very institution which the government of this nation, in lust for power, wants to destroy….the Family and Ultimately the Family of God. For there is no other Family from which the Truth of the Roles God Instituted as Family….Husband, Wife, Father . THAT is the ultimate reason man goes to battle and the reason man wears insignia and uniform of honor unto the Lord when he goes forth to Profess his unyielding Faith from its deepest Root in battle…. to protect and preserve the Family of God…..and when a man knows he goes into service of the Lord in a Just cause, he is at peace, for he is an extension of His very purpose in Justice for those found wanting in Righteousness and Love to those of his Eternal Family.
God Save America…May Redemptive Judgment cleanse the halls of Wicked Tyranny, Counterfeit Humanist Lawmaking founded in Human Appetites and License, the Halls of Injustice where the population is so ignorant of Biblical Justice that they do not react when a judge ACTUALLY MAKES A LAW FROM THE BENCH where the law is supposed to be upheld, NOT MADE!!! and finally the humanist socalled churches which ground belief in the foundation of man’s sinful heart, not the Word of God. May Redemptive Judgment fall upon this hellish wasteland and may a Righteous Generation rise up to cleanse and inhabit the halls of power.
** Tolerance in modern American Apostacy — this is a lie and misnomer as the power elite (media/government) designate Tolerate to mean to accept as True, the other faith or belief, NOT the TRUE definition which is to hold one’s OWN BELIEF while disagreeing without violent intervention, with the other belief. This is a satanic way of speaking as satan in the garden said … “You will not SURELY die!”, and then gave a false meaning to what God had clearly intimated by saying that he was actually holding out on them and that they would be like God, knowing (determining for themselves) Good and Evil.
