LA Man Arrested With 'Massive Arsenal' While Impersonating National Guardsman

As the world braces for yet another night of protests as governors from Texas to the northeast insist that they would never allow the military to unload on American citizens (technically, active-duty military aren't legally allowed to perform 'policing' functions, per federal law), police in LA say they've arrested a man caught impersonating a member of the national guard.

The man, identified as 31-year-old Gregory Wong, was arrested wearing military clothing and carrying a rifle and handgun near Los Angeles City Hall early Tuesday, after he was spotted by National Guard troops who noticed something unusual about his attire, and alerted police, per NBC News.

Our Government Has Been Overthrown

As one local reporter said, Wong was "armed to the teeth", and likely intent on committing an extremely violent act. Bill Melugin✔@BillFOXLA

BREAKING: @FOXLA has learned that LAPD arrested 31 y/o Gregory Wong in DTLA this AM while dressed as/impersonating National Guard. He was armed to the teeth and was booked on assault weapons charges. LAPD says federal charges may come next. Sources confirm this photo. @FOXLA

The reporter added that he had a line on Wong's motives - was he Antifa? Or a white supremacist, perhaps? - but was reluctant to share his information until it had been "triple-confirmed" - an honorable instinct, we must say, given that reporters spreading sensational falsehoods has become a staple of contemporary crises.

We have potential information on his motive but I am waiting to triple confirm before reporting this. Stay tuned for further info. Working all sources on this. @FOXLA686Twitter Ads info and privacy546 people are talking about this

Wong was booked on suspicion of manufacturing or possession of an illegal assault weapon, records showed, thought technically impersonating a police officer is a crime.

They perverted justice among themselves (v. 7): “You turn judgment to wormwood, that is, you make your administrations of justice bitter and nauseous, and highly displeasing both to God and man.’’ That fruit has become a weed, a weed in the garden; as nothing is more venerable, nothing more valuable, than justice duly administered, so nothing is more hurtful, nothing more abominable, than designedly doing wrong under color and pretense of doing right. Corruptio optimi est pessima —The best, when corrupted, becomes the worst.

The following table of United States cities by crime rate is based on Federal Bureau of Investigation Uniform Crime Reports statistics from 2017 for the top 100 most populous cities in America that have reported data to the FBI UCR system.[1]

The population numbers are based on U.S. Census estimates for the year-end. The number of murders includes nonnegligent manslaughter. This list is based on reporting. In most cases, the city and the reporting agency are identical. However, in some cases such as Charlotte, Honolulu, and Las Vegas, the reporting agency has more than one municipality.

Murder is the only statistic that all agencies are required to report. Consequently, some agencies do not report all the crimes. If components are missing the total is adjusted to 0.

1 The figures shown in this column for the offense of rape were reported using only the revised Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) definition of rape. See the data declaration for further explanation.
2 The FBI does not publish arson data unless it receives data from either the agency or the state for all 12 months of the calendar year.
3 The population for the city of Mobile, Alabama, includes 55,819 inhabitants from the jurisdiction of the Mobile County Sheriff's Department.
4 Because of changes in the state/local agency's reporting practices, figures are not comparable to previous years' data.
5 The FBI determined that the agency's data were underreported. Consequently, those data are not included in this table.
6 Arson offenses are also reported by the Louisville Fire Department. Those figures are not included in this table.
7 Arson offenses are reported by the Toledo Fire Department; therefore, those figures are not included in this report.
8 This agency/state submits rape data classified according to the legacy UCR definition; therefore the rape offense and violent crime total, which rape is a part of, is not included in this table. See the data declaration for further explanation.

Criticism of ranking crime data

The FBI web site recommends against using its data for ranking because these rankings lead to simplistic and/or incomplete analyses that often create misleading perceptions adversely affecting cities and counties, along with their residents.[4] The FBI web site also recommends against using its data to judge how effective law enforcement agencies are since there are many factors that influence crime rates other than law enforcement.[5]

In November 2007, the executive board of the American Society of Criminology (ASC) went further than the FBI itself, and approved a resolution opposing not only the use of the ratings to judge police departments, but also opposing any development of city crime rankings from FBI Uniform Crime Reports (UCRs) at all. The resolution opposed these rankings on the grounds that they "fail to account for the many conditions affecting crime rates" and "divert attention from the individual and community characteristics that elevate crime in all cities", though it did not provide sources or further elaborate on these claims. The resolution states the rankings "represent an irresponsible misuse of the data and do groundless harm to many communities" and "work against a key goal of our society, which is a better understanding of crime-related issues by both scientists and the public".[6]

The U.S. Conference of Mayors passed a similar statement, which also committed the Conference to working with the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice "to educate reporters, elected officials, and citizens on what the (UCR) data means and doesn't mean."[6]

This is the end result once God is removed from society...

Peace of mind and the tranquility of spirit that accompanies it are only available when we have true peace with God through the sacrifice of Christ on the cross in payment of our sins. Those who attempt to find peace in worldly pursuits will find themselves sadly deceived. For Christians, however, peace of mind is available through the intimate knowledge of, and complete trust in, the God who meets “all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).

There is no debating it. We live in an ungodly, spiritually deteriorating age. The evidence is everywhere. Not only does the media mock and reject Christian morals, but governments are legislating against Christian beliefs. Immoral lifestyles are not only being flaunted, but they are also being pushed upon the Church with religious vigor. To embrace biblical standards is to invite being labeled a bigot or intolerant, cardinal sins in today’s enlightened age.

So what can Christians do? Some are wringing their hands and opting out of engaging society. Many are claiming they will not vote in the upcoming presidential election. Others retreat to their social media accounts and wistfully long for days gone by. Many are bewildered and have no idea what they should do.

In some countries, the oppression and persecution are direct and obvious. These people have no doubt that they live in an ungodly situation. One of the problems Western Christians face is the temptation to believe they live in godly nations when the exact opposite is true. Canada, the US, and others are not Christian nations. True, they were founded on Christianity and still have many outward benefits of that heritage, but the foundation has switched to humanism. The benefits of Christianity are fading and the judgment of God will become more manifest as we go along – unless there are national repentance and restoration of the Laws of God. Western Christians must face the fact that they no longer live in a Godly society. They must begin to ask how they are to live in an ungodly society.

It seemed that society could not possibly sink any lower in degradation and evil, but it always found a way. Government leaders were consumed with obtaining and holding on to power. They cared nothing for the people. Government leaders resorted to any depth of violence, deception, or evil if it helped them retain their power. It seemed there was nothing that ordinary citizens could do.

There was a couple, however, who thought otherwise. While the royal babies were being butchered, Jehoshabeath hid the king’s son, Joash, even though such an act placed her own life in peril. Joash was only a baby and defenseless against the evil queen. For six years, Jehoshabeath and her husband Jehoida, a priest, hid Joash in the temple (2 Chron. 23:11-12).

What could a religious leader and his wife do against one of the evilest government leaders ever to rule the land? At first, it seemed as if there was little of significance they could do. They refused to accept the evil condition of their land. They hid a baby. Scripture tells us that, “in the seventh year Jehoida strengthened himself” (2 Chron. 23:1). It was then that Jehoida organized leaders who opposed the evil queen and overthrew her, placing the child Joash on the throne. So grateful was the nation, that when Jehoida died, he was granted the enormous honor of being buried in the City of David among the kings “because he had done well in Israel” (2 Chron. 24:16).

What can we learn from the bravery of Jehoida and his wife Jehoshabeath? Several things.

  1. In every age, there have been wicked rulers who sought power at the expense of their people. Our age is not unique!
  2. There is always something godly people can do. Godly people can and must always resist evil wherever they find it. This might mean prayerfully biding your time until the opportune moment to overthrow the current leader. It might mean preserving whatever shred of righteousness is left in the country.
  3. Godly people can join together. The reason that evil often prevails is that godly people are isolated and divided. Jehoida discovered that there were many people in the land who were opposed to the government. They were just waiting for someone to organize and lead them. Once this happened, the people of God reclaimed their nation.
  4. God’s people can support the best possible option that God makes available. In the nation’s most perilous time, why did Jehoida give his support to a baby? It certainly could have been easier to rally the nation behind a fully grown, godly prince. But God had not made one of those available! God’s answer, as it often was in the Bible, was a baby. This meant that God’s people had to wait. Joash would ultimately prove to be a disappointment, later in his rule. He was not a perfect ruler. But he was a far better alternative than the ruler he replaced. This has been a truth of history. God often uses faulty, imperfect people to accomplish His purposes.
  5. God’s people seek God’s purposes for their country. Jehoida did not devote himself to a person, but to God’s purposes. He did not commit his life to help someone achieve power. He devoted his energies to his heavenly King.

So what do we take from this Scripture? Simply this. It is our turn to stand up against evil. It has raised its ugly head in our generation, just as it has in every generation that preceded ours. We must ask, as did Jehoida and Jehoshabeath, what God would have us do to resist the evil of our day. It might seem like something small, such as caring for a baby. It might require great courage as we resist the will of wicked government leaders. It might require waiting until God’s people are organized and have sufficient strength to overturn the inroads that evil has made in the nation. It might require working with imperfect people if that is what God has made available. It will most certainly require us to deny our own preferences as we adjust our lives to what God is currently doing in our nation.

We live in evil times. But, there are still things we can and should be doing. Are you?

John Wesley who said that what we tolerate in our generation, will be embraced by the next. Wesley is 100% correct! We are living in sick times.

People’s hearts are troubled, their minds are in a state of confusion, the Bible tells us a time of great delusion that will come upon the people, that time has arrived, the politicians must come up with more significant and more believable lies in order to bring on the antichrist, we have entered the doorstep Tribulation.

“Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of man and devils”…

The Birth Pains Are Growing Stronger….

“Man will ultimately be governed by God or by tyrants.”

My name is Steve Meyers and I need to share a vision and warning that the Lord showed me back in April 2007….

Many of you will ask why I waited so long to share the warning. I didn’t. I shared the story with everyone that would listen from pastors to friends to family to colleagues. Immediately following the initial vision, I called a close friend. I told him to sit down that I had something to tell him. I needed it documented as I knew this was supernatural and from God. As I witness events unfolding today, I need to share the vision again.

The silencing of the American people before 2020?

“The human heart is an idol factory.”

The Un-Godly — Those That Suppress the Truth, the social media giants built multi-billion dollar empires by giving everyone a voice, but now that they have such a dominant position on the Internet they have decided that many prominent conservative voices should be completely silenced.

Our government has been overthrown. As evidenced by Trump’s capitulation on the border, his recent servitude to the GMO industry and his acquiescence to the warmongers, our President has been compromised. Our liberties are being eliminated one by one. Gun confiscation is next. The Constitution is gasping its last breaths. Our borders are destroyed and our culture has been turned upside down by every perversion known to man.

The prophet does not confuse truth with consensus. The prophet does not confuse God's word with the word of those who happen to hold power at present, or with the opinion of the majority. This is because powerholders and the majority can fall victim to a lying spirit-and this means a power that actually seizes the majority of experts, the political leadership, and the public.

Everything done in dark will be brought to light, being biblically bankrupt will not exclude the elitist.

Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In, I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply Put, I Do Not Believe the Government Is the Solution for Everything. I Do Not Place Any Faith, Trust, or Hope in Any Politicians to Fix What Is Wrong with the World. "Come Lord Jesus!" (Revelation 22:20) The prophet does not confuse truth with consensus. The prophet does not confuse God's word with the word of those who happen to hold power at present, or with the opinion of the majority. This is because powerholders and the majority can fall victim to a lying spirit-and this means a power that actually seizes the majority of experts, the political leadership, and the public.

Thanks to people like Pastor Steven Anderson and the choir of preachers he has assembled within the New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist movement there has been a resurgence in what is called the Reprobate Doctrine. A Biblical doctrine that demonstrates in scripture, that God will turn people over to their vile lifestyles as a curse, blinding them to salvation in Jesus, giving them over to a devil's hell for eternity. A doctrine that I believe is completely Biblical and defined by the Apostle Paul in Romans 1 is unmistakably visceral language.
