Saint Richard – “CITY ON A HILL, Part 1 of 3


City on A Hill (Part 1 of 3) Issue 55 – This Darkness

NOTE: The following subject matter will be a tad weighty but appropriate for the times in which we live where countless lives are under attack by an enemy who takes joy in our persecution.

For some the idea of living in darkness has a much different meaning that for others. The threshold for one person versus another is always going to be different. I want to touch on two categories. Darkness we experience as a community andpage1image1871035824

darkness we experience individually….but it origins always come from the same place.

Beleaguered New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo was dealt a new blow this

afternoon, and it hit him like a Certified Pre-Owned Ford F-350 with an optional 6.7-liter PowerStroke Diesel V8 engine doing 85 miles per hour up the New York State Thruway headed smack dab into the heart of Albany. That is because the Cuomo impeachment investigation discovered that the Governor had been doing something other than placing COVID patients in nursing homes and allegedly asking young interns if they’d ever seen a middle-aged man naked. It appears that Randy

Andy had been setting New York State policy to favor one specific automobile company over all others. Well, it’s even better than that. The evidence seems to suggest that Governor Cuomo had been tipping the scales to boost the fortunes of a

specific NY Certified Pre-Owned Ford dealer in Queens, New York: Freddie Fingers Freedom Ford of Floral Park.

Alright Saint Richard we get it. Cuomo is a pervert scumbag that does favors for Ford. That is a surprise to precisely nobody. But let’s zoom in on this issue just a touch more to make sure we leave no stone unturned…..or steel as it were. I find it quite revealing that the hand of Andrew Cuomo rests

just two inches from a track that leads to Auschwitz. The stone in his hand reads ‘New York State

Remembers’. Do they? What exactly

are you asking your states residents to remember? Is it the atrocities committed by the Nazis packing what would be millions of unwitting Jews onto trains that led them to their deaths? Or are you asking them to remember the many deals you did with Ford Motor Company, who knowingly provided both labor and steel used to build the tracks on which those trains rode? Just curious.page5image1851557488

By the way, there is not one iota of what was just stated that is fiction. It is well documented that Ford supplied both labor and materials to the Germans and that Henry Ford had allegiance to Hitler to degree we cannot fathom.page6image1851601488page7image1871065360

Revelation 2:9 – I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are of Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

I could spend all night talking about politicians and leaders that have spent entire careers claiming to support the movements and ideas the people support but when money is involved, they fold like a cheap suit.

Israel is a prototypical example of how narratives have been created about a nation and a people that is completely skewed and wholly unbiblical. There are those on the supposed extremely right side that if you look at Israel (regardless of topic) in a negative light, you have heaped the wrath of God upon your soul. And then there are those on the progressive left that the very mention of the Israel or the Jewish people draws intense negative emotion.

The truth is that Israelis, just like Americans have been betrayed by their political establishment and the ruling class and they have been deceived by a narrative that places the people at odds with one another.

And therein exists the great deception. Anytime you hear a politician of any stripe say something along the lines of “I support Israel” or “I stand with Israel” or perhaps the opposite which would be “The Palestinian people deserve a home too” or “A twostate solution will work” …..beware. These are all catch phrases that really mean “We all support the continued conflict and the great wealth that comes from war.”

This is how the establishment works. They have no regard for the people. We have been brainwashed into thinking that politicians mostly support the 50% they represent but nothing could be further from the truth. Admit it, most everyone hearing this right now

has been guilty of assuming someone was on our side when he/she ended up being a defector. Well, where the brainwashing took place is thinking they were ever on ‘our side’.

We are now 20+ years removed from 9/11 and I know I am largely preaching to the choir by saying this but it’s important to note. There probably isn’t a person reading or listening to this that doesn’t think that the circumstances around 9/11 were sketchy at best or a full blown inside job at worst. And yet, the very mention of this still places you on the fringes. The reason for this is most simply suppress the fact that ‘men would conspire’ and yet God tells us not only do they conspire but that they spend most of

their time doing nothing but conspiring. But for their schemes to work there must be an imaginary boogie man unleased on the masses. When this doesn’t happen the strategy simply doesn’t work.

The evidence of a 9/11 conspiracy is obvious the more years that go by and yet if we transport ourselves back in time some 58 years ago we find a conspiracy that is equal if not greater than 9/11. The difference being that instead of pitting the many against the many (Americans vs. Muslims) they themselves (CIA and the Executive Branch) conspired against the one man the people loved, President John F. Kennedy.

While pushing a narrative that somehow a lone shooter using a single action rifle from high up in the Texas Schoolbook Depository was able to blow off half the head of the President while also striking two other people. Of course, the litany of other parts of the shockingly absurd story are far too great and detailed to list here but if 2021 technologies or even 2001 technologies were available and used in this case it would make the Jussie Smollett case seem credible by comparison.

After nearly six decades the players are all but distant memories even for those familiar with thepage13image2025941648

events. But for hope is that you any of these because once never again trust the mouth of a official. Men menial as making doors were Parkland Hospital complicated as first lady while

most of you their never hear about individuals
you do you will the words from government playing roles as sure certain locked at

to activities as preoccupying a both coffins and

cadavers were properly situated. Bodyguards, lawyers, snipers, physicians, police officers, as well as two future holders of the highest office in the land. There was also a host of other minor characters all with two overarching objectives.

1.Make sure the President of the United States didn’t leave Dallas, TX alive.

2.Make sure the patsy dies as well.

If you step back for a moment and do just some simple comparative analyses between 1935, 1963, 2001, and 2021 they all have one overwhelmingpage14image2026061344

characteristic in common in that all of them involve the taking of something or someone away from the people and replacing it with either nothing or something that further dilutes freedom.

As we consider this present darkness and what it brings it oddly elicits both laughter and fear. Laughter in that it’s hard to take seriously an organization (WEF) who’s global spokesperson is amentally deranged teenager in Greta Thunburg. Fear in that the people who hold the levers of power are clearly crazy enough to begin pulling those levers. Below are the Global Risks or ‘Guide for Global Nut Jobs’ as I like to call it.page16image1851625600

But there is a big gap in terms of how we combat what we see today versus what we saw in the 30s, 60s, or even at the turn of the new millennium. In the 30s it was pretty much impossible to resist tyranny in a way that could foster widespread participation because the methods of communication were so very limited. In the 60s the awe and relative

newness of television made propaganda a much more believable message especially if it came from the mouths of trusted figureheads on the evening news like a Walter Cronkite. As for the years leading up to 9/11, remember we were a mere 10 years into the age of the internet and mobile devices were the exception and not the rule for the average American citizen. So even just 20 years ago the powers of government were able to still successfully navigate around the people and pull off false flag events that shaped the trajectory of history.

But what about now? Think of COVID. Think of the 2020 election. Think of the global vaccine push. Are any of these events widely accepted by the people?

If we use previous events as our standard, I think the answer is overwhelmingly no.

If we’re being honest with ourselves, we would have to say that when the 2nd plane hit on 9/11 the large majority thought “this is war”.

Conversely, when a virus and subsequent global pandemic began to raise their ugly heads there was a certain percentage of people that were suspect before it ever made its first trip from Wuhan to California. We now live in a world where a lie can no longer make it halfway around the world before the truth catches up. News is now questioned at every turn so the days of a successful mass propaganda machine is dead and gone.

Personal Darkness

The concept of personal darkness has little or nothing to do with the darkness of your own heart but rather the weight of the darkness that tries to infiltrate it. While I do believe there is so much good happening behind the scenes, I also live on planet earth and would be a fool not to give what I believe is the full story. Has God abandoned The United States of America? That is a loaded question. Has He abandoned this perverse generation that His word refers to as ‘the world’? I think the chances of that are quite high. Has he abandoned his remnant of people that will follow Him wherever the path may lead? No chance.page19image2026549632

I say the following only as a point of context. Over the past several months I cannot tell you how many people have messaged me saying thanks for your writings but they are also starting dialog about things going on in their life. This makes me happy because I know the list of those that are being broken continues to grow. But occasionally I will step back and ask, ‘what is it that I’m saying that is so unique?’ and the answer is…. nothing really. If God is not operating through my pen (my keyboard as it were) then it’s a false operation.

The first thing I do in the morning is make myself a cup of coffee and walk over to the window and look up into the sky. I ask one simple question…

“Jesus, is today the day I will see you?” That is the only day that truly matters.

Part of the reason for my anonymity is that I have never really wanted people looking at me in a way that makes either me or them the center of attention. But I have always wanted people to look at me just long enough to see what I am looking at.

The Book of Job is perhaps the perfect picture analogy of both the perseverance and patience that may be required for us to ever see true justice. Few may be aware that prior to the many afflictions of Job there was a conversation between God and Satan where Satan was looking for a man to torment, to destroy. And what did God say to Satan?

He said, “Have you considered my servant Job?” God literally offered up Job to Satan to do with him what he would.

Literally for the first 36 chapters of Job he suffered countless persecution and trials. The enemy afflicted him in ways you and I cannot even begin to get our head around. It became so bad that eventually even Job’s wife told him to curse God and die. Job told her that only would make him a fool. Even though Job lost everything he had and suffered from painful sores all over his body, he did not sin against God.

However, he did cry out to God and question him as you and I often do. Job had a moment of weakness whereby he questioned God in a way that I am quite

sure he thought was entirely appropriate. The way a mature son may question something his father does or doesn’t to that frustrate him. Is the right to question Trumps plan? Of course, because the truth is that none of us really know if he has one for sure although many of us are 99.9% sure. Trump appears to have patience, but does he (or we) have the patience of Job? A level of patience that even when everything in our lives is shattered and laying in a pile of ashes, we still are patient. Job lost his patience with God and what ensued is possibly the most powerful series of passages (spanning two chapters) in all of the old testament if not the entire Bible. Here’s 7 verses…

JOB 38:1-7
The LORD Reveals His Omnipotence to Job38 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said: “Who is this who darkens counsel
By words without knowledge?
Now prepare yourself like a man;
I will question you, and you shall answer Me.“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me if you have understanding.
Who determined its measurements?
Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? To what were its foundations fastened?
Or who laid its cornerstone,
When the morning stars sang together,
And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

I started this issue with the Jeremiah verse that says

…the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it… we need to understand this fact. These are words given directly to Jeremiah by God so that we may know the depths of the darkness of men.

But exceedingly more important is that we know the depths of our own perseverance…our own patience. A patience that surpasses all human understanding.

A patience that turns darkness to light. And in the calmness that comes only from the spirit you’re able to ask a single question with great confidence in the answer. Unshakable confidence.page26image2026700592

Indeed, He Shall.
