Below is a page from my book….
“But in his estate shall he honor the god of forces” (Daniel 11:38. The English word forces in this scriptural passage is from the Hebrew “maoz.” SC-4581). This Hebrew word means a person’s strength or patron/benefactor, his subsidizer-advocate, his base power (The homely [every day] use of this word by the Hebrews was mahuzzim). Let us look at Daniel’s words.
“But in his estate shall he honor the god of forces” (or fortresses/munitions. Amplified).”
“This means,” says Samuel Sparks, “god protectors, or, protectors of gods.” (The Eleventh of Daniel, page 204). Sparkes, Samuel. A. Historical Commentary on the Eleventh Chapter of Daniel. Published by Adams and Lawyer, Binghamton, 1858.
ENABLE. Provide with the means, opportunity, power, authority, to do something,
make possible, or effective.
CORROBORATE. To support and strengthen.
FACILITATE. To make easy or easier.
CONSPIRACY. A planning and acting together secretly for an unlawful or harmful purpose, such as treason or murder.
The above words mean to strengthen, make valid, or more certain. They mean to confirm, bolster, and support. The word enablers actually means, “To provide with means, opportunity, power, or authority and to make possible or effective” (Webster’s Dictionary). Corporately, they mean “To empower, authorize, sanction, warrant, delegate and/or facilitate” (Roget’s Thesaurus).1
Tyrants, dictators, autocrats, rulers, and all who are invested with authority must have enablers, protectors, and corroborator(s) who provide them with the means necessary to carry out their administration. It can be, and at times is, a fair and equitable jurisdiction. But far too often it is an administration of murder, thievery, oppression, slavery, robberies and plunder. All of the above make possible the actions of any and all antichrists for their power. Be it on a local or world-wide level it is always the same (Scripture call governments “beasts.” See Book of Revelations).
There is no such thing as a lone tyrant, dictator, sheriff, governor, president, prime minister, chief, ruler, boss, master, presbyter, captain, pastor or cardinal. All of the above rule by the power, support, and influence and money of others.
Corruption has its opportunity when a politician surreptitiously gives favors and power to men who control and/or influence people and groups such as dictators, unions, ethnic societies, congregations, political parties, pundits, congresses etc., who deliver blocks of votes and sums of money to the politician and secret support to the racketeer or malefactor.
The Scriptures tell us, “If the blind lead the blind both fall into the ditch.” We can be sure that every crooked politician and every reprobate prelate and every poison pastor and every shadowy sheriff and every dirty dictator and every self-supposed corrupt and cruel Conde will have followers that have been blinded by their lies and “spoiled with/by their philosophy, intellectualism, and vain deceit” causing them to “disregard the teachings of Christ” (Colossians 2:8. Amplified Bible). Jesus could have just as truly said “The blind ye have with you always” as he said “The poor ye have with you always.”
Yet it is astonishing to see voters, politicians, and masses of common people (and even armies) rush to the above mentioned and support them to positions where they can take away the very liberty, land, money, freedom, authority and life of the very ones who voted and used their influence to put them into office. I always get a chuckle out of the phrase, “What if they gave a war and nobody came.”
It is true that often men are conscripted into armies and societies against their will and forced to support brutal men but this is not always the case. Sadly, the great majority of enablers, etc., come willingly. When men know not the true God they “make unto themselves gods.” It is simply in man to have a god.
There is a fundamental difference between enablers and god protectors. They are as follows. Those who enable a person or persons are often ignorant of the real person or cause in which they join and promote. Whereas the god protectors are themselves a part of the entire cause and philosophy and see their role as being responsible for the means and welfare of the leaders and will therefore give them their energy, devotion, money, and even their life. This brings us to the reason why I wrote this book.
“THOUGH THEY ARE FULLY AWARE OF God’s RIGHTEOUS DECREE THAT THOSE WHO DO SUCH THINGS DESERVE TO DIE, THEY NOT ONLY DO THEM THEMSELVES BUT APPROVE AND APPLAUD OTHERS WHO PRACTICE THEM” (Romans 1:32 Amplified Bible)
