America: Flirting With Tyranny

Gen 6:4 . .There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

One of the Bible's Hebrew words for "giant" is rapha' (raw-faw') which appears in numerous places throughout the Old Testament and typically always indicates brutish people of large physical stature. But that's not the word for giants here. Instead it's nephiyl (nef-eel') which appears in only two verses in the entire Old Testament; one here and the other in Numbers 13:33.

The word is somewhat ambiguous, but in this context it pertains to bullies: especially to men famous for tyranny, e.g. Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Benito Mussolini, Mao Tse-tung, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein, Idi Amin, Robert Mugabe, Muammar Gaddafi, Xi Jinping, and Kim Jong Un.

The ambition of nephiyl is to quite dominate others. Those kinds of men don't just want power: they want to own your soul.

Men who seek to dominate others are often the least suitable to do so; and back there in Noah's day that was certainly true. The spiritual quality of the world built by the governance of the nehiyl was so poor that the situation required God to step in and do something about it.

Gen 6:5 . . And the Lord saw that the evil of man was great in the earth, and every imagination of his heart was only evil all the time.

That's pretty much the end result of tyranny because in order for the nephiyl's management practices to succeed; any and all moral values but their own have be suppressed. We don't have to look very far in our own time to see that in action; for example Communist China's hostility towards Falun Gong.


NOTE: There is currently a really informative series on NetFlix called "How To Become A Tyrant". It's chilling to see just how many things going on right now, right here in the USA, are in accord with the Tyrant's playbook. The last twenty-one months in my country have been disturbing; and to think there are yet twenty-seven more to go with the current administration.

Let me say just say this: Folks who don't think tyranny can't happen in the USA are like a frog boiling to death by bringing its water temperature up gradually so the poor stupid critter doesn't become alarmed.

Unfortunately, that has been going on for 2 years here.

Might be too late for us... IDK. People are pretty stupid.

Yep, Brandon didn't just FLIRT with Tyranny, he jumped in all the way under the cover along with Justin Castro Trudeau and others like Ardern in New Zealand.

I wasn't seriously alarmed until social media began blocking former US President Donald Trump. And then the Government began fighting Covid data that differs with Dr. Anthony Fauci's "science" and condemned it as misinformation.

The military began weeding out dissidents, private enterprise began politicizing their business models, parents are being gradually removed from parenting, school children are being indoctrinated with Critical Race Theory which is nothing more than a take-off on some of Vladimir Lenin's ideology, and the Communist Chinese are working with US governments to set up police stations in America.

But what really, really scares me is the FBI's conduct. Its become a US version of the Ministerium für Staatsicherheit, a.k.a. the Stasi. Sadly, our "old reliable" law enforcement agency has become politicized too right along with the Teacher's Union and local school districts all across America. When I heard of questions about the FBI's involvement in the Russian collusion hoax and Hunter Biden's laptop, that did it.

Both the Russia Collusion Hoax and the coverup of Hunter's laptop just prior to the 2020 election was without doubt election tampering in both accounts by an agency of our government. We came to expect bias from our media, but our investigatory agencies and their basically unlimited resources for this type of thing is definitely shocking to say the least. Imagine for a moment that it was one of Donald Trump's kids' laptop with incriminating stuff it that could reflect badly on ol' Dad. There would have been a public lynching of the entire Trump family.
