Deadly Distractions

Here’s what is coming up on The Remnant Road on Hebrew Nation Radio for Monday, May 23:

160523 HagmannIn the days of the Caesars Rome kept the public at peace with bread and circuses. As long as the masses have enough to eat and games to keep their attention, nothing else matters – not even when deficit spending swallows up the treasury, politicians and generals devour one another, and Goths and Vandals flood over the borders. Is Rome that different from America today? We probe that and many other questions with veteran investigator, journalist, and author Douglas J. Hagmann. Along with his brother Joe, Doug has been exposing the hidden agenda of the New World Order for many years. This will be another eye-opening show in prophetic analysis of current events!

Choosing Between Jezebel and Caesar

Here’s what is coming up on The Remnant Road on Hebrew Nation Radio for Monday, May 16:

Payne podcastWhat are the people of YHVH to do when forced to choose between two bad options?  That is the question confronting Americans in this election cycle.  The apparent nominees of both major parties are hardly godly leaders. What, then, are the righteous to do?  That is the topic of discussion with Michael Payne, author of the blog A Call To Order.  We will talk about the options available to God-fearing voters, and most likely will investigate some uncomfortable truths about the society that has produced these two candidates.  We may not arrive at answers, but we will uncover plenty of questions!

The Meeting of Dido and Aeneas Sir Nicholas Dance-Holland

The Meeting of Dido and Aeneas
Sir Nicholas Dance-Holland

About the time that Gideon of Manasseh delivered Israel from oppression of the Midianites and Amalekites (Judges 6:1-8:35), a war of (literally) epic proportions took place on the northwest coast of what is now Turkey.  The Trojan War really did happen, but the conflict was already wrapped in myth and legend when a Greek poet known only as Homer published The Iliad sometime around 750 BCE, four centuries after the war’s generally accepted dates of 1194-1184 BCE.  Homer’s epic inspired a number of classical works telling the tales of the Greeks and Trojans, including a sequel published in Latin seven hundred years later.  When the Roman poet Virgil wrote The Aeneid, he probably had a political agenda in mind.  His story is that of Aeneas, a Trojan hero of the royal family who escaped the destruction of the city and led a band of refugees in a journey that eventually resulted in their settlement at the mouth of the Tiber River in Italy.  There they became part of the story of Rome, a city which began as a colony of Alba Longa, the capital of the new kingdom Aeneas and his descendants founded.  Thus Rome could trace its origins at least in part to Troy.  More importantly, the family of Julius Caesar traced its genealogy to Aeneas, giving it a claim to royalty that helped Caesar’s nephew Octavian consolidate his power as Caesar Augustus.  Whether true or not, Virgil’s epic, written early in Augustus’ long reign, cemented the link of the Caesars with Aeneas and Troy in the minds of Romans, making it one of the most successful pieces of literary propaganda ever published.

Even if the Caesar’s claims were falsified, and even if Aeneas never existed outside of classical literature, his tale is an illustration of the remnant:  those who remain.  Whether it is Ishmael surviving to tell the story of Captain Ahab and Moby Dick, or Job’s servants fleeing disaster to report to him (Job 1:13-22), fact and fiction throughout the human experience have featured a fortunate few who escape.  The remnant has the task of carrying the memory of those who went before, of rebuilding what they lost, and of achieving their ultimate destiny.  These remnant tales would have little impact on us if they were not a common feature in reality.  The remnant is a continuous reminder in Scripture that God’s judgment is tempered with mercy in the expectation that a people will at last be able to step into the fullness of the promises YHVH has spoken from beginning of time.
