SHOCKING: The Democrats’ First Bill of 2021 Is to Lock In Fraudulent Election Maneuvers and Steal Elections in Perpetuity | The Gateway Pundit

The fraud in this past election was massive, the worst ever in recorded history, but it is nothing when compared to what the Democrat (Communist) Party has in store for the future of the USA and the world.

In their first act, this Congress led by true communists apparently, is ready to pass a bill allowing all future elections in the USA to be run exactly the same as any communist regime in history.

The Populist Press is reporting the first bill put together by this Pelosi-led Congress will eliminate free and fair elections forever.  Fraud will be the mandate and Democrats, the kings of fraud, will win every election henceforth.  The bill is labeled by the Communist Democrats – “For the People Act of 2021“.

Below are the key aspects of the bill as noted by the Populist Press:

Democrats introduce their first bill in the House: H.R.1 – The bill that will destroy America. Nationwide mail-in voting, banning restrictions on ballot harvesting, banning voter ID, criminal voters,DC Statehood roadwork, it’s all in here.

1) Internet-only registration with electronic signature submission.

“(a) Requiring Availability Of Internet For Online Registration.—Each State, acting through the chief State election official, shall ensure that the following services are available to the public at any time on the official public websites of the appropriate State and local election officials in the State, in the same manner and subject to the same terms and conditions as the services provided by voter registration agencies under section 7(a):

“(1) Online application for voter registration.

2) Banning the requirement to provide a full SSN for voter registration.

SEC. 1005. PROHIBITING STATE FROM REQUIRING APPLICANTS TO PROVIDE MORE THAN LAST 4 DIGITS OF SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. (a) Form Included With Application For Motor Vehicle Driver’s License.—Section 5(c)(2)(B)(ii) of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (52 U.S.C. 20504(c)(2)(B)(ii)) is amended by striking the semicolon at the end and inserting the following: “, and to the extent that the application requires the applicant to provide a Social Security number, may not require the applicant to provide more than the last 4 digits of such number;”.

3) Nationwide ‘Motor Voter’ registration.

Note that motor voter registration is how thousands of illegal became registered voters in California and Nevada.

(2) DEFINITION.—The term “automatic registration” means a system that registers an individual to vote in elections for Federal office in a State, if eligible, by electronically transferring the information necessary for registration from government agencies to election officials of the State so that, unless the individual affirmatively declines to be registered, the individual will be registered to vote in such elections.

4) 16 year olds required to be registered to vote.

(d) Treatment Of Individuals Under 18 Years Of Age.—A State may not refuse to treat an individual as an eligible individual for purposes of this part on the grounds that the individual is less than 18 years of age at the time a contributing agency receives information with respect to the individual, so long as the individual is at least 16 years of age at such time. Nothing in the previous sentence may be construed to require a State to permit an individual who is under 18 years of age at the time of an election for Federal office to vote in the election.

5) Nationwide same-day registration.

“(1) REGISTRATION.—Each State shall permit any eligible individual on the day of a Federal election and on any day when voting, including early voting, is permitted for a Federal election—

“(A) to register to vote in such election at the polling place using a form that meets the requirements under section 9(b) of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (or, if the individual is already registered to vote, to revise any of the individual’s voter registration information); and

“(B) to cast a vote in such election.

6) Grants ($25M) for using minors in election activities.

(1) IN GENERAL.—The Election Assistance Commission (hereafter in this section referred to as the “Commission”) shall make grants to eligible States to enable such States to carry out a plan to increase the involvement of individuals under 18 years of age in public election activities in the State.

7) More children voters.

“(k) Acceptance Of Applications From Individuals Under 18 Years Of Age.—

“(1) IN GENERAL.—A State may not refuse to accept or process an individual’s application to register to vote in elections for Federal office on the grounds that the individual is under 18 years of age at the time the individual submits the application, so long as the individual is at least 16 years of age at such time.

8) Prohibiting attempts to clean voter rolls of non-residents.

It’s this whole section, but in particular, this part below basically says nobody is allowed to request voter rolls to be cleaned up. ie: making it illegal to do what Tom Fitton was doing.

“(1) REQUIREMENTS FOR CHALLENGES.—No person, other than a State or local election official, shall submit a formal challenge to an individual’s eligibility to register to vote in an election for Federal office or to vote in an election for Federal office unless that challenge is supported by personal knowledge regarding the grounds for ineligibility which is—

9) Murderers and rapists can vote.

(1) NOTIFICATION.—On the date determined under paragraph (2), each State shall notify in writing any individual who has been convicted of a criminal offense under the law of that State that such individual has the right to vote in an election for Federal office pursuant to the Democracy Restoration Act of 2021 and may register to vote in any such election and provide such individual with any materials that are necessary to register to vote in any such election.

10) Mandatory early voting.

Note that I personally like early voting in Florida, but putting it here anyway.

“(1) IN GENERAL.—Each State shall allow individuals to vote in an election for Federal office during an early voting period which occurs prior to the date of the election, in the same manner as voting is allowed on such date.



“(a) Uniform Availability Of Absentee Voting To All Voters.—

“(1) IN GENERAL.—If an individual in a State is eligible to cast a vote in an election for Federal office, the State may not impose any additional conditions or requirements on the eligibility of the individual to cast the vote in such election by absentee ballot by mail.


“(A) PROHIBITING IDENTIFICATION REQUIREMENT AS CONDITION OF OBTAINING BALLOT.—A State may not require an individual to provide any form of identification as a condition of obtaining an absentee ballot, except that nothing in this paragraph may be construed to prevent a State from requiring a signature of the individual or similar affirmation as a condition of obtaining an absentee ballot.

“(B) PROHIBITING REQUIREMENT TO PROVIDE NOTARIZATION OR WITNESS SIGNATURE AS CONDITION OF OBTAINING OR CASTING BALLOT.—A State may not require notarization or witness signature or other formal authentication (other than voter attestation) as a condition of obtaining or casting an absentee ballot.


“(A) shall permit a voter to designate any person to return a voted and sealed absentee ballot to the post office, a ballot drop-off location, tribally designated building, or election office so long as the person designated to return the ballot does not receive any form of compensation based on the number of ballots that the person has returned and no individual, group, or organization provides compensation on this basis; and

“(B) may not put any limit on how many voted and sealed absentee ballots any designated person can return to the post office, a ballot drop off location, tribally designated building, or election office.

12) Banning voter ID.

“(1) IN GENERAL.—Except as provided in subsection (c), if a State has in effect a requirement that an individual present identification as a condition of receiving and casting a ballot in an election for Federal office, the State shall permit the individual to meet the requirement—

“(A) in the case of an individual who desires to vote in person, by presenting the appropriate State or local election official with a sworn written statement, signed by the individual under penalty of perjury, attesting to the individual’s identity and attesting that the individual is eligible to vote in the election; or

13) Roadwork for DC statehood and territory statehood.

The whole subtitle.

Subtitle C—Findings Relating To District Of Columbia Statehood

Subtitle D—Territorial Voting Rights


Subtitle E—Redistricting Reform

(B) ENSURING DIVERSITY.—In appointing the 9 members pursuant to subparagraph (B) of paragraph (1), as well as in designating alternates pursuant to subparagraph (B) of paragraph (3) and in appointing alternates to fill vacancies pursuant to subparagraph (B) of paragraph (4), the first members of the independent redistricting commission shall ensure that the membership is representative of the demographic groups (including racial, ethnic, economic, and gender) and geographic regions of the State, and provides racial, ethnic, and language minorities protected under the Voting Rights Act of 1965 with a meaningful opportunity to participate in the development of the State’s redistricting plan.

I am running out of time and space, but please look at this section:

SEC. 3201. NATIONAL STRATEGY TO PROTECT UNITED STATES DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTIONS. (a) In General.—Not later than one year after the date of the enactment of this Act, the President, acting through the Secretary, in consultation with the Chairman, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, the Secretary of Education, the Director of National Intelligence, the Chairman of the Federal Election Commission, and the heads of any other appropriate Federal agencies, shall issue a national strategy to protect against cyber attacks, influence operations, disinformation campaigns, and other activities that could undermine the security and integrity of United States democratic institutions.

(b) Considerations.—The national strategy required under subsection (a) shall include consideration of the following:

(1) The threat of a foreign state actor, foreign terrorist organization (as designated pursuant to section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1189)), or a domestic actor carrying out a cyber attack, influence operation, disinformation campaign, or other activity aimed at undermining the security and integrity of United States democratic institutions.

(3) Potential consequences, such as an erosion of public trust or an undermining of the rule of law, that could result from a successful cyber attack, influence operation, disinformation campaign, or other activity aimed at undermining the security and integrity of United States democratic institutions.

Literally forming a commission to effectively freeze anyone who says that the election was rigged.

The military must step in now and stop validating the election steal and end this Communist takeover of America!

Luntz: Cable News Has Become A “Disaster” That Is Only “Preaching To The Choir” And Frankly, I’m Disgusted And Frightened | Video | RealClearPolitics

Longtime pollster Frank Luntz despaired over the state of the American media ecosystem during an appearance Sunday on FNC’s “MediaBuzz.”

While he says he’s planning to continue his work as a public opinion pollster, Luntz worries he isn’t the right man for the job.

“I’ve been telling my friends and colleague that they have to find someone to replace me because they still need to hear from the public,” he said. “My frustration is that almost every news network goes to the pundits rather than the people. That they listen to those who are paid to have points of view rather than the American public who has a point of view and has been either ignored or betrayed.”

“I just don’t know if I’m the right guy to do it, because I have to tell you I lose my temper and I become the very thing I’m criticizing,” he worried. “We did a survey within the last ten days, 95% of MSNBC voters voted for Joe Biden, 96% of CNN voters voted for Joe Biden, and 93% of FOX News viewers voted for Donald Trump. So these cable news programs are preaching to the choir and that’s a tremendous challenge because it means that you only go to your network that is supporting you. It’s tribal news at its worst.”

Full transcript at bottom.

On the eve of the #Inauguration, I held a focus group of 1/2 Biden voters and 1/2 Trump voters.Here are some words they used to describe America right now:o “Seeking solutions”o “Divided”o “Deceased”Things escalated quickly from there… pic.twitter.com/C2uo5EkApf– Frank Luntz (@FrankLuntz) January 20, 2021

Watch the full highlight reel from Luntz:

FRANK LUNTZ: They simply don’t believe they’re getting the truth, which is what they want, and they cannot distinguish between what former President Trump says and what others say. That in reality they’re getting their news to affirm themselves rather than inform themselves and that’s a problem.

It’s the responsibility of the news media to tell the truth, to provide the facts, and if you’re going to give opinion, make it clear that that’s exactly what it is. The problem with the Trump people is they think that it is all opinion. They think it’s opinion from the left and they can’t find any place to go that’s going to validate them and what they believe.

HOWARD KURTZ, FOX NEWS: But isn’t also true that people on the liberal side of the spectrum try to seek out news that validates their opinions?

FRANK LUNTZ: Here is the problem, we did a survey within the last ten days, 95% of MSNBC voters voted for Joe Biden, 96% of CNN voters voted for Joe Biden, and 93% of FOX News viewers voted for Donald Trump. So these cable news programs are preaching to the choir and that’s a tremendous challenge because it means that you only go to your network that is supporting you. It’s tribal news at its worst.

HOWIE KURTZ: How much of a problem is that for President Biden whose inauguration was based on unity, and half of Republicans don’t believe he legitimately won the election?

FRANK LUNTZ: It’s almost impossible for him to be heard among those who have written him off.

It’s awful for the democracy, it’s the reason I told Bret Baier a few nights ago and I need to stop doing these groups, stop interviewing these people because frankly for me I realize that I’m not the focus of this, but it’s so upsetting to hear this anger and this distrust and this bile that comes out of people.

And what you did not play is the worst of all is when they go at each other and you can’t stop them. I think the ultimate consequence of this is that we’ve lost our ability to reason with each other, to listen to each other, to learn from each other.

Howie, this is a disaster. I know that you’re in the business of analyzing the news. I’m in the business of analyzing public opinion and I have to tell you, I’m not only frightened, but I’m also disgusted by it.

HOWIE KURTZ: Let me play a brief clip of what you said to Bret Baier on fox.

Saying it’s tough is understatement. I reached the point where I don’t want to do this anymore. Howie: so you sound exacerbated a little depressed, are you ready to walk away from your business?

So you’re feeling depressed, feeling perhaps the problems aren’t fixable? Are you ready to walk away from your business?

FRANK LUNTZ: I’ve been telling my friends and colleague that they have to find someone to replace me because they still need to hear from the public. My frustration is that almost every news network goes to the pundits rather than the people. That they listen to those who are paid to have points of view rather than the American public who has a point of view and has been either ignored or betrayed. I believe that your listeners have the right and responsibility to neglect what other Americans think and the problem is that no one is bringing it to them. I just don’t know if I’m the right guy to do it, because I have to tell you I lose my temper and I become the very thing I’m criticizing.

I think this is a great country, a great population and they’ve been horribly treated by too many people in your profession.

HOWIE KURTZ: So given the fact that — and I accept the criticism. Given the fact that you feel like you’re losing your temper and that you’re becoming part of the strident voices here, and I know you get mad when you do focus groups. Is this it for you, it sounds to me like you’ve made a decision?

FRANK LUNTZ: I’ve made the decision, I just need the courage to follow it through.

By the way, I do not feel that way about you.

The Secret To The Stock Market: Just Buy Tech Companies That Are Losing Money And Watch Profits Rain From The Sky — The Economic Collapse

For those that can’t detect sarcasm, I am not actually sharing “investment advice” in this article.  Rather, I am pointing out how absurd our financial markets have become at this point.  While the real economy is mired in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, the stock market just keeps soaring to record high after record high.  If the underlying profits that these corporations were generating actually justified the extremely high stock prices that we have been witnessing, then I wouldn’t have anything to complain about.  Sadly, the truth is that many of the companies that are seeing their stocks soar into the stratosphere are not making any money at all.

I know that this may sound bizarre to many of you that do not follow the markets on a regular basis, but this is what is actually happening.

In fact, Goldman Sachs actually has something called a “Non-Profitable Technology Index”, and it has been rising at an exponential rate during this pandemic…

Of course in order to be a part of the “non-profitable technology index” you have got to be losing money.

So as you can see, if you want to make big money in the stock market just buy tech companies that are losing boatloads of money and wait for the profits to rain from the sky.

At this point, the stock market has become such a rigged game that literally anyone can succeed.  Just ask this guy

“I see a stock going up and I buy it.”


That is brilliant.

And that will work as long as stocks only keep going one way.

When the COVID pandemic started hitting the U.S. really hard, the powers that be decided that they were going to do whatever it took to support the stock market.

The Federal Reserve literally poured trillions of dollars into the financial system, and as a result the ratio of the Fed’s balance sheet to U.S. GDP is at an all-time record high.

Our politicians in Washington kept passing stimulus package after stimulus package, and as a result the ratio of the U.S. budget deficit to U.S. GDP is at an all-time record high.

We are literally destroying our currency and we have placed ourselves on the hyperinflation highway, but very few of our leaders in Washington seem too concerned about what is happening.

So the stock market bubble will continue to expand and people will continue to mindlessly make money until one day a big enough trigger event comes along to burst the bubble once and for all.

And without a doubt, what we are in right now is an epic bubble.  According to CNBC, the trailing price to earnings ratio of the median stock “has never been higher”…

Right now, it’s hard to deny that on the whole, stocks are rich relative to past earnings and forecast earnings. The trailing price/earnings ratio of the median U.S. stock, tracked by Ned Davis Research, has never been higher.

Meanwhile, the real economy continues to deteriorate all around us.

Earlier today, we learned that chocolate giant Godiva will be closing every single one of their stores in North America…

It was sweet while it lasted.

Belgian chocolatier Godiva will sell or close all 128 of its North American shops within the next few months, the company said this week.

Out on the west coast, many small businesses have decided to “go underground” in a desperate attempt to survive

Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer has charged dozens of businesses with violations, including car washes, tobacco shops, beauty supply stores, massage parlors, nail salons, pet groomers, and an Egyptian artifact store.

The owners of one Bay area massage business made the decision to reopen underground after 93 days on no income, telling Cal Matters that it came down to either paying “the fine or we can’t pay our mortgage.”

But why should anyone even try to run a small business at this point?

After all, can’t we all make enormous profits just by buying the stocks of tech companies that are losing millions of dollars every year?

Not even during the “dotcom boom” did we ever witness euphoria like this.

The more absurd the business model, the more investors seem to like it.

And investors really seem to like it when a company is endlessly hemorrhaging money with seemingly no hope of ever becoming profitable.

For now, investing like an idiot works because everyone is winning.

Of course someday the party will come to a very abrupt end.

But for now the madness continues, and most investors definitely do not want to be awakened from their stupor.

At the same time, the World Economic Forum is preparing the rest of us for a dismal economic future in which we eat worms, live in “tiny houses”, and are forced to carefully follow the new “green rules” for a sustainable environment.

The standard of living is going down for most of us, but thanks to rising stock prices the rich are now richer than ever.

This rapidly expanding gap between the wealthy and the poor is creating an enormous amount of tension in our society, and it is just a matter of time before all of that tension explodes in frightening and unpredictable ways.

The Secret To The Stock Market: Just Buy Tech Companies That Are Losing Money And Watch Profits Rain From The Sky — The Economic Collapse

The Police State Is Coming For “Religious Extremists”, “Evangelical Christians”, “Pro-Life” Activists And “Libertarians” — End Of The American Dream

If you cherish faith, family and freedom, you might want to keep a low profile for a while.  The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021 has been unveiled in Congress, and it has bipartisan support.  It is essentially “the Patriot Act on steroids”, and we are being told that it is almost certain that some version of the legislation will make it to Biden’s desk for him to sign.  Personally, I am very much against all forms of domestic terrorism, and a law which could help to prevent terror attacks from happening is going to sound like a good thing to a lot of people.  Unfortunately, it appears that this bill is meant to specifically target certain groups, and as you read this article you may discover that you are a member of one or more of those groups.

Those that drafted this new law say that it will help authorities go after “extremists”, and very few of us would consider ourselves to be one of those.

But the definition of an extremist has changed.  Tulsi Gabbard is one of the most prominent Democrats in the House of Representatives, and last year she ran for president.  But even though she is a Democrat, she is warning that this new law appears to be “a targeting of almost half of the country”

“What characteristics are we looking for as we are building this profile of a potential extremist, what are we talking about? Religious extremists, are we talking about Christiansevangelical Christians, what is a religious extremist? Is it somebody who is pro-life? Where do you take this?” Gabbard said.

She said the proposed legislation could create “a very dangerous undermining of our civil liberties, our freedoms in our Constitution, and a targeting of almost half of the country.”

It is fundamentally un-American to specifically target people for their religious beliefs, and so that is extremely alarming.

Gabbard is also warning that people with certain political perspectives are likely to be targeted as well

“You start looking at obviously, have to be a white person, obviously likely malelibertarians, anyone who loves freedom, liberty, maybe has an American flag outside their house, or people who, you know, attended a Trump rally,” Gabbard said.

Wait a second.

I am a male.

I love freedom and liberty.

I am flying an American flag outside my house right now.

Am I going to be put on a list somewhere?

During a recent television interview, former CIA Director John Brennan said that the Biden administration will likely be focusing on “religious extremists”“nativists”, and “even libertarians” as possible targets.

In what universe is saying something like that okay?

Even before this new legislation has gone through Congress, Joe Biden has already instructed his director of national intelligence to identify potential extremist threats

President Biden has asked the director of national intelligence to draw up a comprehensive threat assessment on domestic violent extremism in the country as the new administration seeks to tackle what it calls a “serious and growing national security threat.”

The move is one of several the White House press secretary announced Friday to address mounting concerns about domestic extremism, particularly in the wake of the violent insurrection more than two weeks ago by Trump supporters at the U.S. Capitol.

There is that word “extremism” again.

And new White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has been using it repeatedly during her press briefings.

In the old days, we assumed that “extremists” were crazy terrorists and suicide bombers in the Middle East.

But now they are using that term to describe large numbers of people that live inside the United States.

That is extremely chilling.

And once “extremists” have been identified, we are being told that the White House National Security Council “will be tasked with building capacity to tackle and disrupt extremist networks”.

What does that mean and what will that look like?

If the Biden administration truly wanted to go after domestic terrorists, they aren’t hard to find.

In fact, a whole bunch of them attacked an ICE facility in Portland on Saturday night

Protests outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Portland turned ugly on Saturday night as federal authorities threatened mass arrests for trespassing.

Dramatic videos posted on Twitter showed the crowd chanting: ‘No borders! No nations! Abolish deportations!’

You can watch footage of the battle that ensued right here.  According to the Daily Mail, insurgents in Portland have now been committing political violence for four days in a row…

It marked the four-straight day of protests in the city since Joe Biden’s inauguration as demonstrators make it clear that a new Democratic administration will not stop their campaign for social justice.

There they are Biden.

Go get them.

We also just witnessed a very frightening terror attack at a church in California

The FBI has launched an investigation after a bomb was thrown at an anti-LGBT church in California just weeks after the pastor received an arson attack threat.

Police and fire crews were called to the First Works Baptist Church at 2600 Tyler Avenue in El Monte in the early hours of Saturday morning to reports of an explosion.

The FBI said an improvised explosive device had been thrown at the building and it had also been covered in graffiti.

Sadly, these are not the sorts of “extremists” that the Democrats have in mind.

Instead, they appear to be very interested in identifying and “deprogramming” those that voted for Donald Trump…

A Democratic National Committee official, David Atkins, said on Twitter that “deprogramming” is needed for every one of more than 74 million people who voted for Trump on Nov. 3.

Limbaugh said they “are literally thinking of deprogramming conservatives.”

Of course it isn’t just the Biden administration that is focused on Trump supporters.  Countless private individuals have joined a growing nationwide effort to punish any individual or entity that was ever closely associated with Trump…

It’s why the left is cheering Big Tech’s embrace of cancel culture and pushing cable providers to stop airing One America News Network, Newsmax and other “conservative influencers.”

It’s why the so-called Trump Accountability Project, which seeks to prevent administrations officials from gainful employment, is not widely denounced for the thuggery that it is and why 250 publishing professionals feel comfortable circulating a “No Book Deals for Traitors” petition that says former Trump officials shouldn’t be allowed to publish their works. It’s also why Harvard students think it’s reasonable to circulate a letter demanding the revocation of degrees earned by Republicans who questioned the 2020 election, and why MoveOn.org demands that the Senate not give Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley any committee assignments.

Now that the Democrats have full power in Washington, it is open season on Trump and all of his supporters.

But the truth is that the vast majority of the civil unrest over the past year has been caused by radicals on the left, and it is only going to get worse in the months and years to come.

For the past 12 months, there has been political violence somewhere in America on an almost nightly basis.  But because leftists are involved 99 percent of the time, the corporate media generally ignores most of it.

You can’t just be against political violence when the other side does it.  I am very strongly against all of the rioting, looting, arson and vandalism that we have been witnessing.  The attacks on police stations, courthouses and federal buildings need to stop.

Sadly, it appears that the people committing most of the political violence will be handled with kid gloves by this new administration.

Meanwhile, those that have politically incorrect religious and political views will be demonized as “extremists” and will be specifically targeted under the new law that Congress is about to pass.

January 24 Evening Quotes of the Day

Living in the Spotlight
1 Timothy 3:2–7

Take heed to yourselves also, because there are many eyes upon you, and therefore there will be many observers of your falls.… The eclipses of the sun by day-time are seldom without witnesses. If you take yourselves for the lights of the churches, you may well expect that men’s eyes should be upon you.

January 24 Evening Verse of the Day

1:17 All things refers to everything created (v. 16). The preposition before most likely is a temporal reference to the preexistence of Christ before creation. The phrase by him all things hold together presents Christ as the one who sustains all creation.[1]

1:17 A strong restatement of the temporal priority and universal significance of Christ, this verse makes explicit what was implicit in v. 16: Christ existed before all creation. He is Himself not created. Nor can it be said, as followers of Arius (c. a.d. 250–336) later maintained, that “there was a time when he was not.” The thought that Jesus is the moment-by-moment sustainer and unifying power of the universe is echoed in Heb. 1:2, 3.[2]

1:17 in him all things hold together. Christ continually sustains his creation, preventing it from falling into chaos or disintegrating (cf. Heb. 1:3).[3]

1:17 He is before all things. When the universe had its beginning, Christ already existed, thus by definition He must be eternal (Mic 5:2; Jn 1:1, 2; 8:58; 1Jn 1:1; Rev 22:13). hold together. Christ sustains the universe, maintaining the power and balance necessary to life’s existence and continuity (cf. Heb 1:3).[4]

1:17 before all things: Both in time and in supremacy. Because of Christ’s supreme authority and oversight, all things consist (hold together).[5]

1:17 He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. Paul says, “He is before all things,” not “He was before all things.” The present tense is often used in the Bible to describe the timelessness of Deity. The Lord Jesus said, for instance: “Before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:58).

Not only did the Lord Jesus exist before there was any creation, but also in Him all things consist. This means that He is the Sustainer of the universe and the Source of its perpetual motion. He controls the stars and the sun and the moon. Even while He was here on earth He was the One who was controlling the laws by which our universe functions in an orderly manner.[6]

17 Because Jesus exists before all things, one could not rightly say, as the second-century. heretic Arius did: ‘There was once when he was not’. As the pre-existent one (Jn. 8:58) Jesus is Lord of the universe. The emphatic he corresponds to the solemn ‘I’ of the OT which refers to Yahweh, the Lord himself. In him all things hold together. The whole of creation is established permanently in him alone. He is the sustainer of the universe and the unifying principle of its life. Apart from his continuous sustaining activity (indicated by the tense of the Greek verb) all would fall apart (cf. Heb. 1:2–3). Although there are similarities with the language of Stoicism here, Paul’s statement is different from the all-embracing world-soul of the Stoics. All men and women, whether they recognize it or not, are totally indebted to the Lord Jesus as Creator and Sustainer. For not only has he made every person who enters the world; he also sustains their lives daily, giving life and breath to each one. Those who are ‘in Christ’, and therefore know him in a personal way, should express their gratitude to him as Creator and Sustainer by living godly lives. Those who have not honoured him or given him thanks (Rom. 1:21) are urged to repent and turn to him in faith.[7]

1:17. Jesus is eternally existent (an attribute that can only be true of God) because he is before all things. Jesus is also the powerful sustainer of the universe. Because of him all things hold together. His power guarantees that the universe is under control and not chaotic.[8]

1:17 “He is before all things” There has never been a time when Jesus was not! Jesus is preexistent deity (cf. John 1:1–2; 8:58; 17:5, 24; Phil. 2:6–7; Heb. 10:5–7)! Notice the emphatic use of “He” (autos) in vv. 17 and 18, “He, Himself, is before all things” and “He, Himself, is head of the body”!




“in Him all things hold together”




“in Him all things consist”




“in union with him all things have their proper place”


This is a PERFECT ACTIVE INDICATIVE of the “syn” compound “to stand with” (sunistēmi) which implies “to continue, to endure, or to exist.”

This is the doctrine of providence (cf. Heb. 1:3) and it is personal! “All things” refers to creation—material and spiritual. Jesus is the sustainer as well as creator of all things. In the OT these functions describe the work of Elohim (God).[9]

17. Now if all things have been created through him and with a view to him (verse 16), it stands to reason that he preceded all created beings in time. In fact, “there never was a time when he was not.” He was “begotten of the Father before all worlds” (Nicene Creed). Accordingly, the “hymn” continues, And he is before all things. He is, accordingly, the Forerunner. The doctrine of Christ’s pre-existence from eternity is taught or implied in such passages as John 1:1; 8:58; 17:5; 2 Cor. 8:9; Phil. 2:6; Rev. 22:13. He is indeed the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. And this temporal priority in turn suggests pre-eminence and majesty in relation to all creatures: And all things hold together in him. The central position of Christ is defended here over against those who rejected it. The One with reference to whom, through whom, and with a view to whom all things were created is also the One who maintains them. The unity, order, and adaptation evident in all of nature and history can be traced to the Upholder or Sustainer of all (cf. Heb. 1:1–3).

All things hold together; that is, they continue and cohere.

There is, accordingly, unity and purpose in all of Nature and History. The world is not a chaos but a cosmos. It is an orderly universe, a system. This, to be sure, does not always appear on the surface. Nature seems to be “raw in tooth and claw,” without harmony and order. Yet, a closer look soon indicates a basic plan. There is adaptation everywhere. For their perpetuation certain plants need certain definite insects. These insects are present, and so wondrously constructed that they can perform their function. The polar bear is able to live where there is ice and snow. It is kept from slipping on the ice by having fur even on the soles of its feet. The yucca plant can live in the hot, dry desert because not only does it have roots reaching down deeply into the soil for water but also leaves so formed that evaporation is very slow. Our lungs are adapted to the air we breathe, and our eyes to the light by which we see. Everywhere there is coherence.

This is true also in the daily events of History. Here, too, things are not as they seem. Often Confusion seems to be rampant. A Guiding Hand is nowhere visible. Instead, we hear the cry of battle, the shriek of anguish. The newspapers, moreover, are filled with accounts of burglary, murder, rape, and race-clash. If we compare the wheel of the universe to a machine, we might say that its gear-teeth seem not to mesh. To be sure, one day in the far-flung future, all will be harmony: the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.… They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Jehovah, as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:6–9). But that time has not yet arrived. All is chaos now. But is it really? Should we not rather compare our world to a weaving, whose underside forms no intelligible pattern, but whose upperside reveals beauty and design? Or to an international airfield? Though its planes, constantly coming and going, make us dizzy, so that we expect a collision any moment, we need not really hold our breath, for the man in the control-tower directs each take-off and landing. Thus, too, all creatures in all their movements throughout history are being held together. And that which holds them together is not Chance or Fate or the laws of Nature or even the “nine orbs, or rather globes” of Scipio’s Dream. On the contrary, “all things hold together in him.” It is the Son of God’s love who holds in his almighty hands the reins of the universe and never even for one moment lets them slip out of his grasp (cf. Rev. chs. 4 and 5). Though the man of flesh regards this as so much pious twaddle, the man of faith proclaims with the inspired author of the Hebrews, “Now we see not yet all things subjected to him. But we behold … Jesus … crowned with glory and honor” (2:9). The believer knows that while the rule of Christ has not been established in every human heart, the over-rule is an actual fact even now (Rom. 8:28; cf. N.T.C. on Phil. 1:12). And at the sea of crystal the Church Triumphant will forever praise and glorify God for his mighty works and ways (Rev. 15:1–4).

Summarizing, the hymn has shown that with respect to all creatures, Christ is Firstborn (verse 15), Point of Reference, Agent, Goal (verse 16), Forerunner, and Sustainer—Governor (verse 17).[10]

Ver. 17. By Him all things consist. That is, Christ upholds, rules, and governs all things by His providence, as is shown elsewhere (Heb. 1:2, 3; Prov. 8:15; John 5:12). Christ is not like a carpenter that makes his house and then leaves it, or like a shipwright that frames his ship and never guides it.

  1. All things are said to consist in Him in respect of 1. Conservation: in that He keeps all things in their being. 2. Precept: in that from Him are prescribed the laws by which nature, policy, and religion are governed. 3. Operation: in that all things move in Him. 4. His position of means to end. 5. As the universal cause of nature and natural instincts in all creatures, by which they further their own preservation.
  2. In Him all things consist. 1. As He is God—(1) In respect of ubiquity; He comprehends all things, and is comprehended of nothing. The nations are but a drop of His bucket, and time but a drop of His eternity. (2) In respect of power; in that this whole frame stirreth. (3) In respect of omniscience and wisdom, for all is within His knowledge, and receiveth order from His wisdom. (4) In respect of decree, for the world to be made did from everlasting hang in the foreknowledge and pre-ordination of Christ. 2. As He is Redeemer. All things consist in Him—(1) Because He is that atonement which kept the world from being dissolved. (2) Because the respect of Him and His Church is that which keeps up the world to this day. Were His body complete the world could not stand one hour. (3) Because the promise made to man concerning His prosperity in the use of all creatures is made in Christ.

III. In Him all things consist. Which word notes—1. Order. By an excellent order the creatures agree together in a glorious frame; for God is the God of order, not of confusion. (1) But are there not many evils in the world? (a) There may be order in respect of God, though not in respect of us. (b) It follows not that there is no order because we see none (Rom. 11:33). (c) Many of the reasons of human misery are revealed—sin entailing punishment. (d) There may be order in respect of the whole, though not in respect of every part. (2) But there are many sins in the world, and those consist not in Christ, neither tend they to order. (a) These are restrained by Christ. (b) Work out His purposes. 2. Continuance. The world, men, and lower creatures, &c., are maintained in being by Christ, 3. Co-operation. By the providence of Christ all things work together. (1) For Christ’s glory; (2) for His people’s good. 4. Immortality. Uses—1. For reproof of men’s security in sin. Seeing that all things consist in Christ, they cannot stir but He seeth them. 2. It should teach us to trust in Christ, not in second causes. 3. If all things consist in Christ, then much more are the righteous preserved with a special preservation. (N. Byfield.)

All things exist in Christ:—All things stand together in Him as the causal and conditional sphere of their continued existence. In Him they live and move and have their being, and in Him the sustentation or upholding of the universe rests. How wondrous, then, the glory and power of the Son of God! Without Him the sun would not shine, nor the seasons revolve; without Him the rain would not descend, nor the rivers run, nor the trees grow, nor the oceans ebb and flow. His power is necessary to summer and winter, seed time and harvest, to earth and sky. He upholdeth all things by the word of His power, and without Him creation would collapse. Every province of the empire of immensity, with all its contents of life, force, and motion, depends on Him. The intellect of angels reflects His light, the fire of seraphs is the glow of His love, the energy of our own souls is an evidence of His beneficence and skill. In Him all things consist—the power of their support, the primal centre of their order, the rule of their operation. This is the Being in whom we have redemption. What sublimity His greatness sheds around the gospel! What moral richness His gospel throws around nature and humanity! How lofty should be our adoration, how strong our confidence, how warm our love, how complete our submission! (J. Spence, D.D.)[11]

17. Paul now sums up his statement of Christ as the intermediary of creation, before setting in parallel to this the fact of his work in the new creation. He (niv omits the ‘and’ at the start of the line, thus losing the exact parallel with 18a) is before all things, and in him all things hold together. ‘Before’, like ‘firstborn’ earlier, is ambiguous, and probably refers again to primacy of both time and rank. The second clause, asserting that the world is now sustained and upheld by Christ, transfers to him one more aspect of ‘wisdom’ thought (see Wisdom 1:7; Ecclus. 43:26; and in the NT cf. Heb. 1:3). The verb, again, is in the perfect, indicating that ‘everything’ has held together in him and continues to do so. Through him the world is sustained, prevented from falling into chaos. No creature is autonomous. All are God’s servants (Ps. 119:91) and dependents (Ps. 104).[12]

17. All things were created by him, and for him. He places angels in subjection to Christ, that they may not obscure his glory, for four reasons: In the first place, because they were created by him; secondly, because their creation ought to be viewed as having a relation to him, as their legitimate end; thirdly, because he himself existed always, prior to their creation; fourthly, because he sustains them by his power, and upholds them in their condition. At the same time, he does not affirm this merely as to angels, but also as to the whole world. Thus he places the Son of God in the highest seat of honour, that he may have the pre-eminence over angels as well as men, and may bring under control all creatures in heaven and in earth.[13]

1:17 / The phrase he is before all things reaffirms some of the things that Paul has already said about Christ. But the new thought is that, in him all things hold together. The Greek word synestēken here connotes preservation or coherence. Thus the Lord who creates the universe also sustains it.[14]

The glory of Christ’s pre-existence (v. 17)

This verse speaks of Jesus Christ’s dignity: ‘He is before all things and in him all things consist’. Jesus was not part of Creation but he was before it. The Nicene Creed (A.D. 325) says ‘there never was a time when he was not’. The doctrine of the pre-existence of Christ from eternity is taught in several places (John 1:1; 8:58; 17:5; 2 Cor. 8:9). He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last (Rev. 22:13). He did not pre-exist in human form but became man at the Incarnation (Phil. 2:6–8). Everything is held together and sustained by him (Heb. 1:1–3). Through him the cosmos is prevented from falling into chaos and the principle of coherence (unity) is found in him.[15]

Recapitulation (1:17)

17 With the glories of the Son as Creator—eikōn and prōtotokos—now spelled out in vv. 15–16, the hymn’s author recapitulates the whole in one simple sentence: “He is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (1:17). Two claims are made, involving the Son’s temporal, hierarchical superiority and his life-enabling sustenance of “all things.” This verse emphasizes what has been said by repetition of vv. 15–16. There are but two concerns for the exegete: the meaning of “before” and the nuances of “hold together.”

Some scholars see here a focus on temporal priority: “he was before all in time.” But in light of what has been said in vv. 15–16, the superiority of the Son is complex: temporal, hierarchical, and ontological. The more correct rendering then is “above all.” Evidence for this understanding can be found in the hierarchical nuance of pro in Jas 5:12; 1 Pet 4:8, but even more at Col 1:15, 18, where the Son is given an all-encompassing preeminence. The problem with “above” as a translation is that it erases the temporal priority, but both are involved: the Son is superior in temporal priority as the preexistent one, and he is hierarchically superior in ontology.

All of this content is tied into one verb in the perfect tense, a tense (as we have indicated already) that is used by authors to depict hyperpresence: the Son is depicted right now in front of our very eyes as sustaining life, holding all things together by virtue of his temporal priority and hierarchical superiority. Because he is before all and above all, he can sustain life for all things. In fact, the author of the Letter to the Hebrews says that the “Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word” (1:3). Once again, the work of Christ sustaining all things occurs “in him” (see notes at 1:2). As Harris puts it, “What Christ has created he maintains in permanent order, stability, and productivity.”

Paul’s language and terms trade in the language of the Hellenistic Jewish wisdom tradition much more than in Stoicism or later gnostic thinking. Wisdom had temporal, creational priority (Sir 1:4), and the Logos sustained all of creation (Sir 43:26; Wis 1:7); though the Greek terms are not identical, the evidence suggests we are in the same world of thought:

Wisdom was created before all other things,

and prudent understanding from eternity. (Sir 1:4)

Because of him each of his messengers succeeds,

and by his word all things hold together. (Sir 43:26)

Because the spirit of the Lord has filled the world,

and that which holds all things together knows what is said. (Wis 1:7)

However much the language reveals a connection with the Jewish wisdom tradition, the startling fact remains that Paul sees cosmic, universal unity, not in an idea or personification (Word, Wisdom), but in a person. And not just a person, but one who had recently been crucified at the hands of Rome but raised from the dead by God. The language may be culturally connected, but the theology at work is remarkably bold.[16]

17  The teaching of vv. 15 and 16 is now recapitulated in a twofold reaffirmation of the preexistence and cosmic significance of Christ: “he is indeed before all things, and they all cohere in him.” “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth,” says Genesis; but in that beginning, says John, which was the beginning of all created things, the divine Word already existed (John 1:1). No matter how far back our imagination may press, we can never reach a point of which we may say, with Arius, “there was once when he was not.” For he is “before all things”124—a phrase which not only declares his temporal priority to the universe but also suggests his superiority over it (as the title “firstborn” has already implied).

As for the statement that all things cohere or hold together in him, this adds something to what has been said about his agency in creation. What has been brought into being through him is maintained in being by him. Similarly, in Heb. 1:2–3 the Son of God is not only the one through whom the worlds were made but also the one who upholds them by his almighty and enabling word. The Greek verb translated “cohere” is found as a Platonic and Stoic term: according to Philo, the material of the human body “coheres and is quickened as into flame by the providence of God.” Ben Sira affirms that by the word of God “all things hold together” (Sir. 43:26). But for Paul the living Christ, who died to redeem his people, is the sustainer of the universe and the unifying principle of its life.[17]

17 The assertion that Christ is the “firstborn over all creation” (1:15b) is reinforced in the statement “he is before all things.” Once again, while temporal overtones may well be intended here, as in 1:15b, the claim that Christ is before all things serves to emphasize Christ’s supremacy and not solely or even primarily his temporal priority (so Caird, 179). That being said, even though 1:17a affirms and underscores the present lordship of Christ (note the present tense verb estin, “is”), it does not deny and could well imply that the One who is before all things was (and forevermore will be) before all things. In fact, Lightfoot, 155, has suggested that the “he is” here corresponds precisely to the “I am” of John 8:58.

This “hymn” not only celebrates Christ as the agent of and Lord over creation; it also proclaims his guardianship over all things. Bruce, 65, notes, “What has been brought into being through him is maintained in being by him.” Paul does not portray Christ as a distant deity away on an extended holiday; rather, he presents and praises an ever-present Power who has held and continues to hold the created order together. (Note the perfect tense of the verb synistēmi, “hold together,” GK 5319.) The cosmos (and all who inhabit it) owes its existence, coherence, and continuance to Christ (cf. Ac 17:28; Ro 11:36). Additionally, as the second strophe of this “poem” will pronounce, the One who holds all things together is the very One who placed all things together through his reconciling work on the cross (v. 20).[18]

Jesus Christ in Relation to the Universe

For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created by Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. (1:16–17)

Paul gives three reasons for Jesus’ primacy over creation. First, He is the Creator. The false teachers at Colossae viewed Jesus as the first and most important of the emanations from God, but they were convinced it had to be a lesser being much further down the chain who eventually created the material universe. But Paul rejects that blasphemy, insisting that by Him all things were created. That truth is affirmed by the apostle John (John 1:3) and the writer of Hebrews (Heb. 1:2). Because the Colossian errorists viewed matter as evil, they argued that neither the good God nor a good emanation could have created it. But Paul maintains that Jesus made all things, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible. He refutes the false philosophic dualism of the Colossian heresy. Jesus is God, and He created the material universe.

By studying the creation, one can gain a glimpse of the power, knowledge, and wisdom of the Creator. The sheer size of the universe is staggering. The sun, for example, has a diameter of 864,000 miles (one hundred times that of earth’s) and could hold 1.3 million planets the size of earth inside it. The star Betelgeuse, however, has a diameter of 100 million miles, which is larger than the earth’s orbit around the sun. It takes sunlight, traveling at 186,000 miles per second, about 8.5 minutes to reach earth. Yet that same light would take more than four years to reach the nearest star, Alpha Centauri, some 24 trillion miles from earth. The galaxy to which our sun belongs, the Milky Way, contains hundreds of billions of stars. And astronomers estimate there are millions, or even billions of galaxies. What they can see leads them to estimate the number of stars in the universe at 1025. That is roughly the number of all the grains of sand on all the world’s beaches.

The universe also bears witness to the tremendous wisdom and knowledge of its Creator. Scientists now speak of the Anthropic Principle, “which states that the universe appears to be carefully designed for the well-being of mankind” (Donald B. DeYoung, “Design in Nature: The Anthropic Principle,” Impact, no. 149 [November 1985]: p. ii). A change in the rate of Earth’s rotation around the sun or on its axis would be catastrophic. The Earth would become either too hot or too cold to support life. If the moon were much nearer to the Earth, huge tides would inundate the continents. A change in the composition of the gases that make up our atmosphere would also be fatal to life. A slight change in the mass of the proton would result in the dissolution of hydrogen atoms. That would result in the destruction of the universe, because hydrogen is its dominant element.

The creation gives mute testimony to the intelligence of its Creator. Max Planck, winner of the Nobel Prize and one of the founders of modern physics, wrote, “According to everything taught by the exact sciences about the immense realm of nature, a certain order prevails—one independent of the human mind … this order can be formulated in terms of purposeful activity. There is evidence of an intelligent order of the universe to which both man and nature are subservient” (cited in DeYoung, “Design in Nature,” p. iii). It is no wonder that the psalmist wrote, “The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their utterances to the end of the world” (Ps. 19:1–4).

The testimony of nature to its Creator is so clear that it is only through willful unbelief that men can reject it. Paul writes in Romans 1:20, “Since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.” Like those who deny Christ’s deity, those who reject Him as Creator give evidence of a mind darkened by sin and blinded by Satan.

Jesus also has primacy over the creation because He is before all things. When the universe began, He already existed (John 1:1–2; 1 John 1:1). He told the Jews in John 8:58, “Before Abraham was born, I am” (not “I was”). He is saying that He is Yahweh, the eternally existing God. The prophet Micah said of Him, “His goings forth are from long ago, from the days of eternity” (Mic. 5:2). Revelation 22:13 describes Him as “the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” As was previously mentioned, anyone existing before time began at the creation is eternal. And only God is eternal.

A third reason for Jesus’ primacy over creation is that in Him all things hold together. Not only did Jesus create the universe, He also sustains it. He maintains the delicate balance necessary to life’s existence. He quite literally holds all things together. He is the power behind every consistency in the universe. He is gravity and centrifugal and centripetal force. He is the One who keeps all the entities in space in their motion. He is the energy of the universe. In his book The Atom Speaks, D. Lee Chesnut describes the puzzle of why the nucleus of the atom holds together:

Consider the dilemma of the nuclear physicist when he finally looks in utter amazement at the pattern he had now drawn of the oxygen nucleus.… For here are eight positively charged protons closely associated together within the confines of this tiny nucleus. With them are eight neutrons—a total of sixteen particles—eight positively charged, eight with no charge.

Earlier physicists had discovered that like charges of electricity and like magnetic poles repel each other, and unlike charges or magnetic poles attract each other. And the entire history of electrical phenomena and electrical equipment had been built up on these principles known as Coulomb’s law of electrostatic force and the law of magnetism. What was wrong? What holds the nucleus together? Why doesn’t it fly apart? And therefore, why do not all atoms fly apart? ([San Diego: Creation-Science Research Center, 1973], pp. 31–33)

Chesnut goes on to describe the experiments performed in the 1920s and 1930s that proved Coulomb’s law applied to atomic nuclei. Powerful “atom smashers” were used to fire protons into the nuclei of atoms. Those experiments also gave scientists an understanding of the incredibly powerful force that held protons together within the nucleus. Scientists have dubbed that force the “strong nuclear force,” but have no explanation for why it exists. The physicist George Gamow, one of the founders of the Big Bang theory of the origin of the universe, wrote,

The fact that we live in a world in which practically every object is a potential nuclear explosive, without being blown to bits, is due to the extreme difficulties that attend the starting of a nuclear reaction. (cited in Chesnut, The Atom Speaks, p. 38)

Karl K. Darrow, a physicist at the Bell (AT & T) Laboratories, agrees:

You grasp what this implies. It implies that all the massive nuclei have no right to be alive at all. Indeed, they should never have been created, and, if created, they should have blown up instantly. Yet here they all are.… Some inflexible inhibition is holding them relentlessly together. The nature of the inhibition is also a secret … one thus far reserved by Nature for herself. (cited in Chesnut, The Atom Speaks, p.38)

One day in the future God will dissolve the strong nuclear force. Peter describes that day as the one when “the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up” (2 Pet. 3:10). With the strong nuclear force no longer operative, Coulomb’s law will take effect, and the nuclei of atoms will fly apart. The universe will literally explode. Until that time, we can be thankful that Christ “upholds all things by the word of His power” (Heb. 1:3). Jesus Christ must be God. He made the universe, existed outside and before it, and preserves it.

Jesus Christ in Relation to the Unseen World

whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities (1:16b)

Thrones, dominions, rulers, and authorities refer to the various ranks of angels. Far from being an angel, as the Colossian errorists taught, Christ created the angels. The writer of Hebrews also makes a clear distinction between Christ and the angels: “Of the angels He says, ‘Who makes His angels winds, and His ministers a flame of fire.’ But of the Son He says, ‘Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever, and the righteous scepter is the scepter of His kingdom’ ” (Heb. 1:7–8). Jesus has been exalted “far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in the one to come” (Eph. 1:21). As a result, “At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth” (Phil. 2:10). With that truth the apostle Peter agrees: “[Christ] is at the right hand of God, having gone into heaven, after angels and authorities and powers had been subjected to Him” (1 Pet. 3:22).

Scripture is clear that Jesus is not an angel, but the Creator of the angels. He is above the angels, who in fact worship Him and are under His authority. Jesus’ relation to the unseen world, like His relation to the visible universe, proves He is God.[19]

January 24 Afternoon Quotes of the Day

Born of the Church
John 3:5; Acts 2:41

The birth for the kingdom of God must be of water and of the Spirit. If one is born to the temporal inheritance of a human father, he is born of the bowels of a carnal mother; if one is born to the everlasting inheritance of God as his Father, he is born of the bowels of the Church.

The Future Belongs to God
Matthew 6:31–32; Isaiah 46:8–10; Romans 8:28; Deuteronomy 7:9

We must trust God today, and leave the morrow entirely with Him. The present is ours; the future belongs to God.

January 24 Afternoon Verse of the Day

2:30 your salvation. This phrase signifies the Child who would bring God’s salvation to humanity.[1]

2:30 Your salvation. I.e., the One who would redeem His people from their sins.[2]

2:30 Simeon identified God’s salvation as being personified in Jesus. For Jesus to come was for God’s salvation to come.[3]

2:30. Simeon had seen God’s salvation by having seen the Child, Jesus.[4]

2:30 This emphasis on seeing God’s salvation may come from OT prophecy (cf. Isa. 52:10) or reflect the same message.

In these opening chapters of Luke the term “salvation” has two connotations:

  1. In the OT texts quoted it refers to the physical deliverance of Israel.
  2. In light of the gospel it refers to spiritual salvation, which is brought through faith in Jesus’ person and work.

In the OT, Israel is saved from the nations, but now Israel’s Messiah will save the nations![5]

Verse 30

“My eyes have seen thy salvation.” Simeon held in his arms and was looking at a baby … and saw in him salvation. Jesus looked at unstable Simon and saw a Rock (John 1:42). Jesus reflected on his approaching cross and saw triumph (John 12:32; 16:33b). Faith means vision … and victory![6]

30. For my eyes have seen. This mode of expression is very common in Scripture; but Simeon appears to denote expressly the bodily appearance of Christ, as if he had said, that he now has the Son of God present in the flesh, on whom the eyes of his mind had been previously fixed. By saving I understand the matter of salvation: for in Christ are hid all the parts of salvation and of a happy life. Now if the sight of Christ, while he was yet a child, had so powerful an effect on Simeon, that he approached death with cheerfulness and composure; how much more abundant materials of lasting peace are now furnished to us, who have the opportunity of beholding our salvation altogether completed in Christ? True, Christ no longer dwells on earth, nor do we carry him in our arms: but his divine majesty shines openly and brightly in the gospel, and there do “we all,” as Paul says, “behold as in a glass the glory of the Lord,”—not as formerly amidst the weakness of flesh, but in the glorious power of the Spirit, which he displayed in his miracles, in the sacrifice of his death, and in his resurrection. In a word, his absence from us in body is of such a nature, that we are permitted to behold him sitting at the right hand of the Father. If such a sight does not bring peace to our minds, and make us go cheerfully to death, we are highly ungrateful to God, and hold the honour, which he has bestowed upon us, in little estimation.[7]

2:30 my eyes have seen your salvation. Simeon echoes the Old Testament hope of “seeing” God’s salvation (Isa. 52:10; cf. Ps. 98:2), but now it is not in the future but rather in the present. The fact that God’s salvation is “seen” in a six-week-old baby born to parents who cannot even afford the regular sacrifice underlines the note of glorious paradox that runs through these first two chapters.[8]

30 The word for salvation, σωτήριον (sōtērion, GK 5402), is in neuter form rather than the common feminine form. The use of the neuter form is most likely influenced by Isaiah 40:5 [LXX], as in the quotation in Luke 3:6.[9]

Conservative Inc. mostly promotes transgenderism | Evangelical Dark Web


Who can we trust for information? What are we trying to conserve? These are questions that conservatives find themselves asking. What is surprising is just how many media outlets that target conservatives (the most precise way to word this) outright promote transgenderism, the sinful ideology that states that a person can change their gender based on personal desire. Many right-targeting outlets will play along with this ideology at the expense of the cause of their target audience. In this video I go through several outlet’s coverage for the story where Joe Biden was reported to tap Rachel Levine, a man who feels pretty as assistant health secretary. Here are the results:

The Bad

It is quite stunning (and brave) the number of right-targeting outlets that will publish the lie that Rachel Levine is a woman. Fox News is where I start off and they publish what the Associated Press reported on the issue without editing for correct pronouns. Many conservatives have quit Fox News in favor of greener pastures. However, Newsmax, the largest benefactor of Fox’s decline did the same exact thing. They too ran the Associated Press reporting. Continuing the pattern was the Washington Times and New York Post, both alternatives to their area’s communist newspaper.

Outside of directly citing the Associated Press, The Daily Caller partook in lying about Rachel Levine being a woman with their own reporting. The biggest disappointment was The Blaze whose writer, Dave Urbanski, went to great length to frame the story as someone who sent COVID into nursing homes but saving his own mother first only to refer to Levine as a woman. The largest offender outside Fox News was perhaps Salem Media. Between their three major outlets that covered the story, Townhall, Redstate, and Hot Air, all three referred to Rachel Levine as a woman. Considering Townhall’s political editor is Guy Benson, a Republican version of Pete Buttigieg, this isn’t all that surprising.

The Good

The Daily Wire historically has either remained neutral or has been adequate in not giving into this narrative. Their coverage of the current story was not used for this assessment. PJMedia’s coverage in the past regarding Rachel Levine is perhaps some of the most honest in conservative media. Breitbart had one instance in their article where they refer to Levine as a her, but the rest of the article used male pronouns. This was likely a copying and pasting error and thus forgivable. The Gateway Pundit also did not use female pronouns.

It’s important to note, not every major conservative outlet reported this story and that this assessment is not exhaustive, however most major players were covered.

Christian Reporting

Some Christian outlets like Evangelical Dark Web and Reformation Charlotte reported on prominent Christians’ reactions to this news rather than the event itself. Of those that reported of the event itself, Protestia told the truth and so did Christian Post who not only used male pronouns but edited the quotes with brackets that referred to Rachel Levine as a woman. That is the gold standard for both how Christians and conservatives should report on this issue.


Readers should not have to mentally swap out the words of that which is reported to them in order to have an understanding of the news. Considering the intensity biblical ideals, like man and woman, are being attacked so quickly under the Biden Regency, conservatives and Christians need news outlets that will not perpetuate the narrative that wants to destroy their values and deny basic biology. If a news outlet cannot stand up to this false narrative, what false narratives can they be trusted to stand against.

Did Vaxxing for Covid Kill Hank Aaron? | Stephen Lendman

Article Image

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman

On January 22, legendary baseball Hall of Fame home run king Hank Aaron reportedly died in his sleep — no cause of death given so far.

More below on the loss of a figure Sports Illustrated said “transcended baseball like few ever did or will.” 

He was bigger than life on and off the field as a giant of the game and humble human being.

Mohammad Ali called him “(t)he only man (he) idolized more than” himself.

He was a sports giant giant I remember well from his playing days. 

Growing up in Boston, I missed seeing him in person with the Braves that moved from the city to Milwaukee in 1953, before Aaron joined the team a year later.

His storied career began in the Negro Leagues around five years after Jackie Robinson became the first Black major league baseball player with the then-Brooklyn Dodgers.

I recall seeing him play against the Boston Braves in the late 1940s and be booed by fans in the stands — not for being an opposition player, for the color of his skin.

Boston like countless other US cities remain racist to this day — but not in ballparks of all sports any longer where Black athletes are the biggest stars and main attractions.

Aaron transcended stardom to the measure of what he was as a man.

He began playing baseball as a shortstop.

The Milwaukee Braves called on him to play in his first major league game because of an injury to regular outfielder Bobby Thompson.

As baseball’s highest-paid player in 1972, Aaron was paid $200,000. In 1976, got $240,000 — small fractions of what star players earn today.

He played in more baseball all-star games (21) than any other player to this day.

He overcame racial hatred and rose to stardom through great skill as a player — combined with humility and grace as a man.

Though Bobby Bonds broke his career home run record and Babe Ruth — the first player to hit 60 homers in one season — was know as the Sultan of Swat, Henry/Hammerin Hank Aaron will be baseball’s home run king for time immemorial.

From Mobile, Alabama sand lots to the Negro Leagues, then minors to the Majors in Milwaukee, then Atlanta, Aaron will always be one of the national pastime’s most iconic figures.

A gifted player offensively and defensively, impressive statistics alone don’t capture his importance to the teams he played on and communities where he lived — most prominently the Atlanta Braves in the peach state.

Calling him bigger than baseball, Sports Illustrated said he was “a beacon for civil rights, of humility and of honest work ethic, all qualities we associate with America at its best, not just in some sporting venture.”

He was part of major league baseball for nearly a generation as an active player from 1954 – 1976.

I defer everything about what he accomplished on the field to sports analysts now recounting them at length.

He’s remembered as the most transcendent player since Jackie Robinson broke the color line two years after WW II ended.

When Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s single-season home run record — a historic sports moment I saw live on television and remember vividly as he circled the bases and was greeted joyously at home plate while fans were cheering — announcer Vin Skully reported the moment as follows:

“What a marvelous moment for baseball. What a marvelous moment for Atlanta and the state of Georgia.” 

“What a marvelous moment for the country and the world.” 

“A Black man is getting a standing ovation in the deep south for breaking a record of an all-time baseball idol.” 

“And it is a great moment for all of us, and particularly for Henry Aaron.”

“You wanted to add an ‘amen.’ ”

After achieving the moment at age-40, he addressed the crowd by microphone, saying:

“Thank God it’s over.”

After retiring on the field, he remained with the Braves organization as an executive involved in building its minor league system.

“He established Chasing the Dream, a foundation that provides grants to children age nine to 12 to seek advance study in arts, music, dance and sports,” Sports Illustrated reported, adding:

“Graciousness always was an Aaron hallmark, as much as” what he accomplished” as a player.

A giant on the field of dreams and throughout his life now belongs to the ages.

Aaron was vaxxed for seasonal flu/renamed covid with Moderna’s hazardous vaccine on January 5.

After his Friday death, no explanation of cause was reported.

After being vaxxed, he told AP News that he felt “wonderful,” adding:

“I don’t have any qualms about it at all.”

All vaccines are hazardous to health and should be avoided — especially experimental, unapproved, fast-tracked, DNA altering covid ones.

Since mass-vaxxing began in the US, Europe, and elsewhere, thousands of adverse events were reported, including serious ones, along with scores of known deaths.

Was Hank Aaron’s life cut short because he rolled up his sleeve to do what he thought was the right thing?

Noted anti-vax advocate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said the following in response to Aaron’s death:

His “tragic death is part of a wave of suspicious deaths among elderly closely following administration of COVID vaccines.”

“Studies show that self-interested pharmaceutical company researchers, physicians, nursing homes and health officials seldom report vaccine injuries.” 

“Instead, they dismiss injuries and deaths as ‘unrelated’ to vaccination.”

“Public health advocates worry that the vast majority of injuries and deaths will go unreported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), the notoriously broken voluntary surveillance system run by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).”

A 2001 HHS study concluded that “fewer than 1% of vaccine injuries” are reported to VAERS.”

Aaron’s family should order an autopsy to determine the cause of his passing — to be performed by trusted experts who’ll explain accurately what took is life.

While at this time it’s unknown, it’s well known that elders aged-80 or older are especially vulnerable to ill effects from vaxxing because of their weakened immune systems.

Vaxxing may well be responsible for taking Aaron’s life.

Everyone vaxxed for covid is playing Russian roulette with their health and lives — especially the elderly like Aaron.

I mourn his loss like many others.

Anthony Fauci Joins the Long List of People Incapacitated by Coronavirus Vaccine | Global Research by Adam Dick

Anthony Fauci, the director of the United States government’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told reporters Thursday that he was “knocked out” for about 24 hours after, on Tuesday, taking the second dose of experimental coronavirus vaccine. Fauci has thus joined the large and growing list of people who have suffered serious harm from the injections that he and other government officials have been encouraging Americans to take.

Back on December 22, Fauci said just before publicly having his first shot of the two-shot regimen that he was being injected with the experimental vaccine “as a symbol to the rest of the country that I feel extreme confidence in the safety and the efficacy of this vaccine and I want to encourage everyone who has the opportunity to get vaccinated.”

It turns out Fauci also ended up a symbol of harm that can arise from taking the experimental vaccine.

In a Friday Daily Mail article, Natalie Rahhal provides more information about Fauci’s post-vaccination trouble, as well as the resistance by medical workers and other Americans against pressure to be injected with the experimental vaccine. You can read that article here.

Got Hypocrisy, Joe? Biden Raked in More ‘Dark Money’ Than Any Candidate in History, Dwarfing Trump’s Donations | RedState

AP Photo/Susan Walsh
Sometimes, I almost feel like “The hypocrisy of the Left knows no bounds” should be permanently affixed as the opening sentence of my articles if not the headline. The 2020 presidential election was and remains a quintessential case in point.

As is the case with every presidential election, the “pure as the driven snow” Democrat Party —  this time with addled old Joe in tow — incessantly hyperventilated — lied — about the untold vast amounts of “special interest” money flowing into Donald Trump’s evil coffers.

Just one problem.

While Biden and his handlers continually bragged about his campaign’s small-dollar donations — as a “moral” contrast to Trump’s “corrupt” “special interest” donations, of course — it appears that again they were either lying, clueless, or both.

The title of a Saturday report from Bloomberg says it succinctly:

‘Dark Money’ Helped Pave Joe Biden’s Path to the White House.

More specifically, Biden’s campaign reeled in more “dark money” than any campaign in history, dwarfing Trump’s special interest contributions by multiples:

$145 million to $28.4 million.

President Joe Biden benefited from a record-breaking amount of donations from anonymous donors to outside groups backing him, meaning the public will never have a full accounting of who helped him win the White House.

Biden’s winning campaign was backed by $145 million in so-called dark money donations, a type of fundraising Democrats have decried for years. Those fundraising streams augmented Biden’s $1.5 billion haul, in itself a record for a challenger to an incumbent president.

That amount of dark money dwarfs the $28.4 million spent on behalf of his rival, former President Donald Trump.

And it tops the previous record of $113 million in anonymous donations backing Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in 2012.

Again, say it with me, everybody: “The hypocrisy of the Left knows no bounds.”

And the sheer depth of hypocrisy, in this case, is “almost” mind-numbing — the operative word being “almost,” given who we’re talking about. Democrats have railed against “dark money” and “special interest” money for decades, calling it a corrupt way for supporters to quietly back a candidate without public scrutiny. But — but — but — Trump.

You know, in this case: Orange man bad, dark money good.

And? As reported by CNN in late November, more than $320 million of “dark money” contributions, in total, not only helped propel Biden to the White House; the “secretive” contributions also helped boost congressional Democrat races.

As Bloomberg reported, Priorities USA Action Fund, the super-PAC formed in 2011 to re-elect Chicago Jesus Barack Obama, and in 2020 designated by Biden as his “preferred vehicle” for “outside spending,” used $26 million originally donated to its nonprofit arm, Priorities USA, to back Biden. The donors of that money do not have to be disclosed.

Priorities USA Chairman Guy Cecil was anything but apologetic:

“We weren’t going to unilaterally disarm against Trump and the right-wing forces that enabled him.”

Again, orange man bad, shuffled-around dark money, good.

Incidentally, you ever notice how the Democrats and their state media sock-puppets love to throw around “right-wing” at every concocted opportunity, yet never seem to come across an example of “left-wing” anything? Me too. Same with “far-right” vs. “far-left.”

As one might expect, a Biden spokesman did not “immediately respond” to Bloomberg’s request for comment.

Greg Gutfeld’s Final Tweet Was 2 Weeks Ago And It’s Still Relevant Today | WayneDupree.com

Greg Gutfeld issued a tweet just two weeks ago that carries some major weight.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Big Tech unleashed a barrage of attacks on conservatives free speech and Gutfeld has some choice words for them.

Check it out:


MORE NEWS: [VIDEO] Biden Just Unleashed The “Kommunist Kraken” Upon America With Newest Move

But what’s crazy is that this statement is still relevant.

Under Biden it doesn’t look like free speech for conservatives is going to get any better and Big Tech will likely just become more and more biased against view points that don’t match their own.

Thankfully though, many conservatives see this attack and are getting ready to fight back.

What the Left is doing with their agenda is so similar as what Rockefeller did with health care. Changing the way health care was administered from natural cures to pharmaceutical. Any one who dare to question the change was deemed insane.

What they’re doing is straight out of the 1930s playbook.

i wanted to cry, my friends 93 yr old German mom turned and said she feels like she’s watching how the Natzis started in Germany and she never thought she would have to live thru that again. what are we doing 

Free speech is free speech. It’s all or none, you don’t get to cherry pick. I hope his final executive order eviscerates all social media platforms.

This tweet is incredibly brave. Thank you.

It’s certainly frightening what’s happening in this country.

But it’s imperative that we fight back and stand up for our rights, otherwise they could be gone forever.

Trump Did NOT Incite D.C.Riots | News With Views

by Rev. Austin Miles

The lying newspapers today are only useful if one has a caged bird. I am sick and tired of reading that Trump Supporters were responsible for the Washington, D.C. riots. They were NOT. Trump had a group of people who were sincere supporters of him who were going to walk quietly down a street in D.C. to demonstrate that he has many supporters. This is FACT.

Antifa along with BLM with their ears on the tracks, and mined the info that these supporters were coming to D.C. George Soros quickly paid for busses to take them to the Capitol to intermingle with Trump Supporters. They are the one’s who came, with weapons, to crash the U.S. Capitol. And they were all paid to do so.

Let’s not forget that since the counterfeit media conveniently placed the blame on Trump Supporters for the havoc in D.C. we have another demonstration of a lying media. This event alone makes it all apparent. Only alternative news sites, radio talk shows, and some TV gives accurate information.

They took over what was to be a simple parade showing support for the greatest President the U.S. has ever had, with many Senior Citizens in the group. None of them were armed nor did any of them even contemplate violence.

This writer was once a Democrat and yes, there WAS a Democrat President who was terrific. That was John F. Kennedy, my cousin. That was back before the democrats went socialist-communist.

The armed ones at this attack on America were Soros paid agitators. Yet the lying newspapers hammered that Trump Supporters had breeched the U.S. Capitol. In absolutely every story printed and put on TV, they made a point of calling the rampage of destruction, injury and death “by Trump Supporters.” That was the verbiage printed every time a story about the D.C. riots was printed. This is total dishonesty. Any person or party who is dishonest should never be considered an equal or even given respect.

So where CAN one find honest news? The internet is the first place to look. Yes there are some who misuse the internet but check out the columnists on various news sites and you will be accurately filled in with what is actually happening in society. My own website: http://www.revaustinmiles.com, has 7 of the greatest columnists in the world, one each day in the week. One of those first class writers is Kelleigh Nelson who every writer looks up to. When she does a story, her research is totally amazing. After reading any of her columns, you know that you not only had truthful reporting of the news but you will learn all details of that which she is writing about.

The public has learned that this website, http://www.revaustinmiles.com, is one place where you can learn exactly what is going on politically and socially. And for that reason, this website has over eight and a half million readers daily. And the number continues to climb every day.
