Happy birthday, our Lord on high! Happy birthday!
By the time this article is published it should already be Christmas, thus it is important that my first words are to wish the birthday ‘boy’ a happy birthday, for that is one thing that Christmas is about – marking the day that Christ Jesus was born into the mortal realm – and it would be mighty unjust if everyone in this realm gets wished a happy birthday except the Lord on high. Therefore, happy birthday Jesus of Nazareth, hip hip hooray! (Can someone give Him a birthday cake?)
However, it is insulting that His birthday had been sullied by people, who declared themselves shepherds of His flock, who would hijack the tidings He brings by twisting His words to their devilish ends. Earlier, prior to Christmas Eve, I had published an article talking of the real and radical meaning of Christmas, questioning the Hong Kong establishment’s portrayal of the Christmas story and what it means to Hong Kong society. As if right on cue, the current archbishop of Hong Kong’s Anglican Church, Paul Kwong, delivered his Christmas message to Hong Kongers, completely proving my point in my article, by slamming elements of Hong Kong society for causing destruction and division in such movements as calling for Hong Kong independence, the “oath-gate” debacle and the general discontent at the HKsar regime.
Representing the Lord of creation, as His prophet on Earth and for Hong Kong (if I declare falsely may He strike me down with holy fire), I thus proclaim the words of the Lord: Get behind me Satan! For you, Paul Kwong, is a wolf disguised as the shepherd of my flock, a thief masquerading as my harvest worker, a tare growing amongst my crop of wheat! You will burn in the eternal flames of Inferno, and be condemned in the deepest depths of Tartarus!!
The title of this article comes from a very well known Christmas carol, sung by Christians throughout the generations since Charles Wesley, brother of the famous theologian John Wesley, wrote the song in 1739. Yet the words “Glory to the newborn King!” placed in its historical context is subversive, for the Royal House of Israel had been long gone by the time Jesus was born, the once unified nation had split apart to become Israel (which was eventually destroyed before the Greek and Romans came) and Judah due to Solomon’s infidelity. The throne of Judah was usurped by Herod the Great and Herod Antipas, installed by the Romans to keep the peace in Palestine, along with the appointed Roman governor. Thus, the declaration of Jesus as king is an act of ousting a ruling monarch from his throne, declaring the Romans had no jurisdiction in Judah, and no authority on Earth is higher than He! By the words of Paul Kwong, he would be declaring Jesus as a usurper, a pretender to authority with no right to govern! How can he openly proclaim himself a leader of Christ’s Church, when the very words he breathes testify against the authority of the Living God?!
Paul Kwong condemns Hong Kongers who would not only split Hong Kong apart, but denying china’s authority over Hong Kong, yet the Lord rebuts you in His proclamation:
“Do not think I have come to give you peace. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword!" (Matthew 10:34)
Our King of Heaven and Lord of Host had also declared:
“For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother…. And a man’s enemies will be the members of his household” (Matthew 10:35-36)
Pray tell then, Paul Kwong, where in hell did your words and the authority to proclaim it?
Oh, I will bet Kwong would cite Saint Paul’s words to the Corinthian Church against me, and may I first say that you also sully the very name of Saint Paul, who himself had once persecuted Christians – formerly a group of Jews that had broken away from the Judaic faith – but then had been converted by Christ himself to defend the Church, something the Jewish authorities would have declared as subversive and tearing the Jewish people apart! Going to St. Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, he did indeed say that governments and rulers have the authority from God to reign over His flock, that Christians should obey the authorities as the representatives of God, but what Kwong would not have people know, is that those very authorities must first be doing what God Himself have ordained the authorities on Earth should do: love justice, hate evil, protect the powerless and show mercy! Yet, oh Kwong who has the audacity to call himself Paul, where do we see your so called godly authorities doing that?! Time and again, we in Hong Kong see not only our so called authorities preying on the powerless, exacting injustice and condoning evils, but those in china actively persecuting the very churches you are supposed to defend! Therefore, we the people are not bound to obey such an ungodly power; in fact, we are supposed to overthrow that power, for our obedience is first owed to God and Him alone, who had time and again, through His prophets on Earth, cast down unjust mortal men from their seats of power.
Our Lord Himself had also said that those of us who proclaim themselves His disciples must be ready to deny even their family:
“He who loves his father and mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves his son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.” (Matthew 10:37)
Since it is so, then it must also be extended to obedience to a governing power or to a nation. For if a nation has been found guilty of perverse actions against God’s people and creation, then God’s people have the duty to break away from such a satanic nation, for as Jesus had also said that it is better for us to lose an arm and leg, than for the rot to spread into the other parts of the body! The people owes their allegiance first and foremost to God and Him alone, and as the body of Christ and his agents on Earth, we are authorised to exact the Lord’s justice on the army of Satan on Earth!Oh Paul Kwong, supposed shepherd of the Anglican Church in Hong Kong, to utter your stinking load of bulldust on the Lord’s Birthday, is tantamount to throwing dung at Him during His birthday celebration!
