Left of Lansing Podcast–Episode 19: Former Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer

The 19th episode of the Left of Lansing podcast is posted!

This week’s guest is former Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer.

During his tenure from 1995-2013, Mr. Brewer helped lead Democrats to major electoral victories, including the governorship in 2002, and the Democrats taking over the state House in 2006.

Please recall, this was at a time when right-wing conservatism held major sway not just in Michigan, but in the country. Well, I guess right-wing ideologies still enjoy large swaths of popularity in parts of the country.

Mr. Brewer and I discuss a number of topics, including the direction of the Michigan Democratic Party, fighting back against the Michigan right-wing’s voter disenfranchisement schemes, Governor Whitmer’s budget plan to fix Michigan, and why we progressives must remain vigilant despite last year’s electoral success.

I praise Michigan Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib for leading the fight against the Trump Regime’s disgusting detention center conditions on the border. But while some Democrats are shining a light on one of the most despicable human rights violations in history, some aren’t feeling the urgency of this crisis. And that’s a problem the Democratic Party is having at this perilous time.

I also echo Mr. Brewer’s call to remain active and engaged in our election process. The Michigan right-wing despised democracy, which is why they work day and night to erase voting rights.

Stay informed.

    Hi,

    Please allow me to some very important news that’s been going throughout the internet relevant to our future well being.

    We are advancing towards a future of a one world cashless society in which we will be mandated to receive an RFID microchip inserted in our body. This microchip will store our personal information and we will lose much more of our privacy because of the tracking potential.

    Even bigger news, did you know that this was foretold almost two thousand years ago from a man named Jesus Christ? How could this be? Read on… This could be the most important article you will ever read.

    – “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

    And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six” (Revelation 13:16-18 BRG)…

    Speaking of the final times, this can only be referring to a society where physical currency is no more, which has yet to occur, but we are getting close to. Why’s that? Because we could still buy or sell without accepting the mark of the beast between each other if tangible currency was still in use. It logically deduces itself to this end.

    This mark can’t be anything spiritual, because the word references two separate physical spots. If it were to be spiritual, it would not reference two different physical locations.

    Here is it where it all starts coming together. It is shocking how on the mark(so to speak) the holy scriptures are in regards to this RFID chip. These are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this RFID chip in the 90’s.

    Carl Sanders sat in 17 New World Order conferences with heads of state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to talk about their agenda on how to bring about this one-world system. The US government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the nations-a microchip that would be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle(a quick, convenient process that would be progressively accepted by the people).

    Mr. Sanders, along with a crew of engineers with him, with US grant monies supplied by US tax dollars, took on this assignment and designed a RFID microchip which is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable with the aid of the temperature fluctuations in our skin. With out having understanding of the holy Bible (Mr. Sanders was not a believer at the time), these engineers spent one and a half million dollars gathering data on the best and most convenient location to have the RFID microchip placed below the skin.

    Guess what? These researchers discovered that the forehead and the back of the hand(the two places Revelation says the mark will be placed) aren’t just the most convenient locations, but are additionally the only viable locations for fast, steady temperature fluctuations within the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The chip is approximately 7 millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It’s capable of containing many pages of details about you. All your standard information, work information, crime data, health data, and financial data could be stored on this microchip.

    Carl Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped invent, is the “mark” spoke of in Revelation 13:16-18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” Additionally it’s interesting to notice that the number 666 is in fact a word in the original Greek. That word is “chi xi stigma,” with the end part, “stigma,” additionally meaning “to stick or prick. Carl believes that is referencing to the use of a hypodermic needle being poked into a person to insert the RFID chip.”

    Carl asked a doctor what would occur if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The medical doctor answered by saying a terrible sore would show up in that spot. Now this is what the book of Revelation says:

    “And the first(Angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2 NKJV).

    The holy scriptures tell us that we will not be able to buy or sell without accepting the mark of the beast, or the number of its name. The number being identified as 666. The scriptures tell us to count the number 666. How do we calculate 666?

    This is where it gets really interesting. Calculating the number of the beast 666 has been long debated throughout the past, but has finally been made known in these last days by the Holy Spirit. What you will read confirms itself with the word of God the true meaning to calculate 666.

    Throughout the scriptures, God uses the number three for confirmation. A few examples are shared below:

    “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

    “and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

    “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

    What is interesting is the the mark of the beast is explained in detail in 3 different verses (Revelation 13:16,17,18), and each verse lists 3 different examples of the given topic. The last 3 being the number 6 being used three times in a row. This is a key point to solving how to calculate the number 666.

    What does it mean to calculate the number 666? It means to add up. How may we add up 666? Remember my past key point regarding God confirming in threes. So logically, what would be the most sensible way to add up the number 666? To add it up equally in 3’s based off the number. We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the beginning. We are not able to count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60, because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666. The only sensible option is 6+6+6=18. What is fascinating is that the verse that tells us to count the number of the beast itself is verse 18, being the 3rd verse out of 3 verses that describe the mark of the beast. Now what is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

    Another interesting point is that the two other combinations (bringing a combined total of 3 possible combinations) for moving the “+” symbol in between the 6’s are 66+6=72, and 6+66=72. Count up both 72’s together and you get 144. Why the number 144 is interesting is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the scriptures where the 144,000 are being described in detail:

    “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

    If we add up all three numbers by counting 666 by moving the plus symbol around in all 3 possible combinations, we would get 72+72+18=162. What is interesting about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name for Jesus in Greek gematria calculates to 888. The New Testament was originally written in the Greek language. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb being Jesus Christ.

    Now what is fascinating about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply this same formula, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits:

    “Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads” (Revelation 4:2-4).

    Now if you take 8+8+8=24, and 8+88=96, and 88+8=96, you get 24+96+96=216. Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666. Don’t forget that this was the exact formula to get the value 162 out of counting 666 that brought about the value 888 when dividing 144,000 by 162. It is perpetual.

    With utilizing the same formulation of counting by including the plus symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a manner?

    Another interesting point to notice is that if you add up all the numbers from 1 to 36, it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? May this be a sign that we need to add up three sixes as opposed to perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?

    So what could this suggest? We know in this world we’re identified by numbers in various forms. Starting from our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license, being recognized based on a system of ruler ship. So it’s conceivable that this RFID microchip will incorporate a new identification that has a total of 18 characters.

    May this be the title of the beast, the number of its name? The one-world beast system that’s identified by 18 characters? This could fit the scriptures that speaks of a mark that we ought to have to buy or sell in our right-hand or forehead, and that it also carries the number of the beast, throughout a future cashless money society.

    The scriptures warns us in the last days that a false prophet will stand up performing miraculous signs deceiving many to obtain the mark of the beast:

    “Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image” (Revelation 19:20).

    At ALL COSTS, resist the mark!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    We’re residing in very prophetic times with very important Biblical prophecies coming to pass. When Donald Trump acknowledged Jerusalem as capital of Israel in December of 2017, this was a massive step to bring forth the Third Temple foretold within the Bible.

    God’s Holy scriptures alerts us that the Antichrist will seat himself in this temple:

    “…and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).

    Within the Islamic faith, they have a man called the Mahdi, known as their messiah who they’re eagerly waiting to appear. There are a number of testimonies from people on line who consider this man will be Barack Obama who may be the biblical Antichrist. I myself have had strange dreams about him. He came on stage declaring himself to be a follower of Christ with no affiliation to the Muslim faith, but was later revealed by his own family members that he certainly is a faithful Muslim.

    His real name is said to be Barry Soetoro, and he had his name switched to Barack Obama. Is there any significance to this?

    Jesus says, “And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In Hebrew, the name “Barack” means “lighting”, and the use of “Bama” (Strongs Hebrew phrase 1116) is used to mean the “heights” of heaven.

    The day after the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the triumphing pick three lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s domestic state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama use to be a U.S. senator for the state of Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Regardless, whomsoever seats himself in the Third Temple that is to be built in Jerusalem, declaring himself to be God WILL BE THE ANTICHRIST. DO NOT BE LEAD ASTRAY.

    Why do we need Jesus Christ?

    “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 2:23).

    “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    Our own works cannot save our souls. If we step in front of a judge in the court of law, being responsible for committing a crime, the judge will not judge us by the good that we have carried out, but rather the crimes we have committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy creator?

    God has delivered to us His moral law’s by way of the 10 commandments received by Moses at Mt. Siani. These legal guidelines were not given so we may be justified, however in order that we could see the need for a saviour. They are the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in each of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we all know that it’s an offense to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, and son on.

    We can strive to follow all the moral guidelines of the 10 commandments, but we’ll by no means catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. The same word of the law received by Moses became flesh over 2000 years ago inside the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by perfectly fulfilling the commandments of God, living a sinless life that only God could fulfill.

    The gap between us and the law of God can never be reconciled by our very own merit, however the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to seize hold of, by faith in Him, He will pull us up being the one to justify us. As inside the court of law, if somebody steps in and pays your debt, despite the fact that you are guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and allow you to go free. This is what Jesus did almost 2000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled within the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood, with His final words being, “…It is finished!…” (John 19:30).

    So why did Jesus have to die for us?

    Because God is Holy and just, the wrath that we deserve could not go unnoticed. Through the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it ought to be dealt with, it must be quenched and satisfied.

    For God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). This is why in Isaiah chapter 53, the place it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.

    That is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. For if it were to be poured out on us who have earned it, we’d all die and go to hell. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son who’s soul could not stay in Hades, however was raised and seated on the right hand of God in power.

    Now when we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer looks at the person who deserves His wrath, but now the glorious image of His perfect Son living inside of us, justifying us as if we obtained the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death.

    Now what we ought to do is turn from our sins and believe in the savior, confessing and turning from our sins. That is not only a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, butrather receiving His words, taking them to heart. In which we no longer live to exercise sin, however turn from our sins and practice righteousness:

    “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

    By doing so we may become transformed into the image of God through faith in His Son Christ Jesus Who’s willing to present the Holy Spirit to those who ask of Him:

    “Most assuredly, I(Jesus) say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ (John 3:5-6).

    “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9).

    What are you waiting for? Our heavenly Father only wishes the best for us, restoring all the things this world has stolen from us. This is what it means to be “holy”. To be made whole.

    He’s waiting to hear from you. That God given tongue to speak language, by faith, pray to Him, ask Him to forgive you by confessing your sins and be willing to forsake them; that you accept the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross, and that you want His Holy Spirit living inside you transforming you into a child of the living God.

    Jesus says, “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him(the Holy Spirit) will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

    Did you know that Jesus spoke more about hell than any individual else in the scriptures, even more than He spoke about heaven?! For this very cause He came to die for us, to rescue us from this place that we earned by our sins.

    He describes hell as a actual place where,

    “Their worm does not die
    And the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44).

    And where,

    “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth…” (Luke 13:28).

    Jesus tells us who to fear,

    “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

    “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’

    Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’

    And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8).

    With all of the world religions, how can we be sure the Bible has it right? The scientific information has established and continues to support that the universe once had a beginning in which space, time and matter were created. Many know this as the big bang.

    “The non-biblical religions tell us that god or god’s create within space and time that eternally exist. The Bible stands alone and says that time and space don’t exist until God creates the universe.” – Astronomer(Phd) Hugh Ross

    The Bible not only got it all right that space, time and matter all came into existence at the beginning of the universe, it also states in 7 distinct places that the universe is is continuing to expand thousands of years earlier than scientists found out these things.

    Did you hear that the real Noah’s Ark was discovered in the place where God’s word told us it would be with the correct dimensions? As well as proof for the destruction of the cities of Sodom & Gomorrah and the Exodus account of the Red Sea crossing?

    The Bible is the most translated and studied document in the history of the world, packed with predictive prophecies, matching what we find within the book of nature. Wouldn’t you assume God’s word to be so?
