April 18, 2013 Trail Of Tears
The Trail of Tears is a name given to the ethnic cleansing and forced relocation of Native American nations from southeastern parts of the United States following the Indian Removal Act of 1830. The removal included many members of the Cherokee, Muscogee (Creek), Seminole, Chickasaw, and Choctaw nations, among others in the United States, from their homelands to Indian Territory in eastern sections of the present-day state of Oklahoma. The phrase originated from a description of the removal of the Choctaw Nation in 1831.
Many Native Americans suffered from exposure, disease and starvation on the route to their destinations. Many died, including 2,000-6,000 of 16,542 relocated Cherokee. European Americans and African American freedmen and slaves also participated in the Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee Creek and Seminole forced relocation’s.
The conquistadors worked their way through the “New World.” They came across many different Indian societies and destroyed them all. The most glaring example was Cortes and the Aztecs. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trail_of_Tears

Ask yourself these questions:
Will American troops, law enforcement and the general population follow genocidal orders again?
Will they begin to secretly report and arrest perceived dissidents?
Will the military follow orders to shoot to kill American citizens who will be desperately looking for their next meal?
Will there even be a next meal?
When the irresistible force meets the immovable object, what will happen?
Will American troops fire, when ordered, upon their American brothers and sisters?
Several supposed well-intentioned groups have been established throughout the country to give the population the "illusion" of safety. These groups encourage and remind the military and law enforcement to uphold the Constitution and to disobey unlawful orders which would bring harm to American citizens. Under this false sense of security, many in the American public really believe that American troops will not fire upon them.

One popular group assured the American public that both law enforcement and the military will refuse to obey unlawful orders to commit genocide against American citizens. If you believe this fiction, you are delusional.
Groupthink is often described as a decision-making process and mind programming control whereby the group members go along with what they have been taught, told and programmed to believe even - if it is a lie and is rigged reality. This psychological warfare programming often causes groups to make hasty, irrational decisions, where individual doubts are set aside, for fear of upsetting the group’s leadership and balance.
How far will people go to please authority figures and do what they know to be UN-Godly, horrific, abusive and immoral?
To achieve success, an authoritarian regime requires a high level of voluntary cooperation (groupthink) from its citizens.
What is groupthink?
Irving Janis, the first person to study it in detail, defined groupthink as the kind of thinking people do when they are committed to a cohesive group and their striving for unanimity overcomes their ability to use reasoning and be realistic about which action to take. Individual uniqueness, creativity, and independent thinking are left behind in protecting the cohesiveness of the group. People do not want to appear foolish or to upset the group so they set their doubts aside and make irrational decisions.
Janis studied American foreign policy disasters such as Pearl Harbor in 1941 and the Bay of Pigs fiasco in 1961. Most remember the American government’s (New World Order elite) decision to attack Iraq in 2003 to destroy the “weapons of mass destruction” although many USA citizens and most of the rest of the world did not think it was wise. Groupthink is not only something that politicians do, but also it is something Law enforcement, military and the general population do. Groupthink strategies are used by the New World Order deception and propaganda to further their agenda for One World government, One World Economy, One World religion, etc.
Conditions leading to groupthink
Several conditions make groupthink more likely. Here are several of these relevant conditions:
Predictive Programming: The New World Order uses every media possible to impart information and deception in to the minds of the population with an intentional, anticipated outcome. They hypnotize, cast spells, dumb down, send out disinformation flares and use many other strategies for brainwashing and control.
Highly cohesive group: Law enforcement and military value the closeness of their group because there are few people with whom they can share deeply.
Insulation of the group: Law enforcement and military have few people to talk with about concerns they are seeing. Some may be totally blind to the realities and depth of what is happening in the world.
Directive leadership: Top Brass in Law enforcement and the military tell officers what to do and how to think. They provide only information that supports their agendas. Programming and use of brainwashing techniques and strategies is on-going. Obedience to orders is expected.
Homogenous group. The selection process in choosing and training (programming) officers results in groups of people with same values, same ways of thinking and actions, same "education," and so forth.
External threats. Law enforcement and military live under difficult situations with political, safety, and health threats surrounding them.
Symptoms of groupthink
Some of the symptoms indicating that groupthink is in progress:
Illusion of invulnerability.
Collective rationalization of warnings that challenge assumptions.
Unquestioned belief in the morality of the group and unquestioned belief in the morality of the activities the group is expected to participate in or is participating in.
Stereotyping people outside the group as weak, biased, stupid, or even evil.
Leadership puts pressure on dissenting group members to conform when they do not support an action or decision.
Illusion of unanimity among group members because the silence of others is taken as agreement even though most of the members do not agree morally or ethically in the activities.
Pressure by leadership to conform to the consensus of everyone in the group.
Self-appointed and leadership appointed “mindguards” (deception) who intentionally shield the group from important information which results in the failure of members of the group to step back, look at, see and understand the bigger picture of "rigged reality."
Did groupthink happen in the Bible?
We do not have enough details to be sure but groupthink appears to have happened shortly after King Solomon died. His son, Rehoboam, became king and soon asked Solomon’s advisors about how to respond to a difficult situation.
Rehoboam rejected their good advice to serve the people, and then he consulted some young men with whom he had grown up. These young men gave him bad advice to treat the people harshly. He did so, lost many of his subjects, and barely escaped alive to Jerusalem (1 Kings 12:8-20).
Differences between unity of the Spirit (unity between Holy Spirit filled Believers in Jesus Christ) and the unanimity of groupthink:
The unanimity of groupthink must not be confused with the “unity of the Spirit” described in
Ephesians 4:3. The unanimity of groupthink comes from a set of assumptions that must not be questioned. Unity of the Spirit comes from a Christian set of assumptions - (from the King James Bible), obedience to the Word of God and a common purpose of being united with Christ (Ephesians 2:1-5). See also: Heading The Wrong Direction
After the first term of Christian missionary service, a problem surfaced which illustrates the difference between the unity of the Spirit and the unanimity of groupthink. When they reached the church in Jerusalem, Paul and Barnabas met with the apostles, elders, and the church. They reported the results of their service, and some of the believers present stood up and said that the converts had to be circumcised and obey Moses’ law. Then the apostles and elders met to consider this (Acts 15).
There was much discussion (Acts 15:7).
Peter, not the leader of this group but someone with previous experience with this issue, addressed the group (Acts 15:7).
Barnabas and Paul reported what God had done among the Gentiles (Acts 15:12).
The group became silent as they listened to this report (Acts 15:12).
Only when they finished did James (leader of the group) give his opinion on what should be done (Acts 15:13-21).
To implement their action we read that the apostles and elders, with "the whole church…” (Acts 15:22), and they wrote in their letter, "It seemed good unto us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men unto you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul," (Acts 15:25).
This was unity in the Spirit, quite different from the unanimity of groupthink. The leader did not express his opinion at the beginning; people from both sides of the issue spoke; people were quiet as they listened; there was much discussion; in the end a decision was reached that the Gentiles involved “read it and were glad for its encouraging message.”
Be careful to distinguish between the unity of the Spirit and groupthink. Educate yourself and others about the realities in the world in which we live. Choose not to follow any group and choose not to serve the satanic government systems.
Notice, only when they finished did James (leader of the group) give his opinion on what should be done (Acts15:13-21). James was a wise leader.
Good biblical leaders are often called "Shepherds." A wise Shepherd leads the flock from behind. Leading from behind the flock allows the Shepherd to see everything.
The Shepherd gently guides the flock, not out in front of the flock, acting like a cork - blocking, not dragging goats, not legalistic, not prideful, not self righteous, not preventing others from growing and freely walking with the Lord using their gifts as lead by the Holy Spirit.
A true shepherd leader is kind, gentle, encouraging, firm, and loving towards the sheep that God has entrusted in his care. He teaches with gentleness and provides a safe place for disciples to discuss their experiences on the mission field. He leads and trains disciples with love and patience, as he protects, provides for, meets the needs, gives, encourages, guides and teaches in gentleness, love and kindness. If a lamb wanders and is disobedient, the Shepherd breaks the legs of the lamb and carries it around his neck until the lamb's legs heal. The Shepherd does this so the lamb learns to stay close and stay in the protection of the flock.
Acts 17:11: These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Are We Accountable For the Sins Of Past Generations?
It doesn't matter if you never invaded this native american continent or any of your living relatives, etc. did or whatever other horrible event happened in the past. As Believer's in Jesus Christ, we are accountable for the iniquities that our deceased family members participated in.
Each generation reaps what the previous generations have sown unless there is repentance all the way back to Adam and all the way back to Eve. This breaks generational curses.
The Lord...visits the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation. (Exodus 34:6-7; Deuteronomy 5:8-10)
39 And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.
40 If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;
41 And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:
The generations to come who experience the penalty of the fathers’ sins are those who hate God.
We are not told how the fathers’ sins become the children’s sins. But what we are told is that when the father’s sins are visited on the children it is because the children are really sinful. That is the form in which the fathers’ sins are visited. Therefore, all judgment is really deserved by the person who is punished.
The Bible mentions “generational curses” in several places (Exodus 20:5; 34:7; Numbers 14:18; Deuteronomy 5:9). God warns that He is “a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.”
It sounds unfair for God to punish children for the sins of their fathers. However, there is more to it than that. The effects of sin are naturally passed down from one generation to the next. When a father has a sinful lifestyle, his children are likely to practice the same sinful lifestyle. Implied in the warning of Exodus 20:5 is the fact that the children will choose to repeat the sins of their fathers. A Jewish Targum specifies that this passage refers to “ungodly fathers” and “rebellious children.” So, it is not unjust for God to punish sin to the third or fourth generation – those generations are committing the same sins their ancestors did.
There is a trend for Believers to try to blame every sin and problem on some sort of generational curse. This is not biblical. God’s warning to visit iniquity on future generations is part of the Old Testament Law. A generational curse was a consequence for a specific nation (Israel) for a specific sin (idolatry). The history books of the Old Testament (especially Judges) contain the record of this divine punishment meted out.
The cure for a generational curse has always been repentance. When Israel turned from idols to serve the living God, the “curse” was broken and God saved them (Judges 3:9, 15; 1 Samuel 12:10-11). Yes, God promised to visit Israel’s sin upon the third and fourth generations, but in the very next verse He promised that He would show “love to a thousand [generations] of those who love me and keep my commandments” (Exodus 20:6). In other words, God’s grace lasts a thousand times longer than His wrath.
For the Christian who is worried about a generational curse, the answer is repentance all the way back to Adam and all the way back to Eve, then accept the free gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ. Repentance all the way back to Adam and all the way back to Eve breaks ALL generational curses.
After you repent and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, you are a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). How can a child of God still be under God’s curse (Romans 8:1)? The cure for a “generational curse” is repentance of the sin in question, faith in Christ, and a life consecrated to the Lord (Romans 12:1-2).
Because of God’s grace, which is finally secured by Jesus Christ, the children can confess their own sins and the sins of their forefathers generations and be forgiven and accepted by God. This breaks ALL generational curses.
With a humble heart, go before the Lord.
Tell the Lord: "Father, I repent for all the iniquities of my family member all the way back to Adam and all the way back to Eve. Father, I ask you to break ALL generational curses in my life and the lives of my children (if you have children) AMEN." God is faithful to hear and answer the prayers of the righteous in Him.
