Welcome to The Causes of Things, a podcast from Sovereign Nations. The 1st century BC poet Virgil stated, “Blessed is he who understands the hidden causes of things.” This statement is as brilliant today as it was 2,000 years ago.

Primarily narrated by Michael O'Fallon, The Causes of Things is didactic in nature featuring a collection of teaching series & lectures, some of which are recorded specifically for this podcast, and some that are from public lectures. The show will offer discussion and information concerning a variety of complex ideas: The philosophical presuppositions behind the ideas that are aggressively shaping our world, the answers to those challenging ideas, and the necessary historical, hierarchical structure of the world as represented through the lens of Judeo Christian belief.

    Hebrews 8 | Sovereign Strength for Today

    Hebrews 8, English Standard Version

    1 Now the point in what we are saying is this: we have such a high priest, one who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, 2 a minister in the holy places, in the true tent that the Lord set up, not man. 3 For every high priest is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices; thus it is necessary for this priest also to have something to offer. 4 Now if he were on earth, he would not be a priest at all, since there are priests who offer gifts according to the law. 5 They serve a copy and shadow of the heavenly things. For when Moses was about to erect the tent, he was instructed by God, saying, “See that you make everything according to the pattern that was shown you on the mountain.” 6 But as it is, Christ has obtained a ministry that is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises. 7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion to look for a second. 8 For he finds fault with them when he says: “Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will establish a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, 9 not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt. For they did not continue in my covenant, and so I showed no concern for them, declares the Lord. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 11 And they shall not teach, each one his neighbor and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. 12 For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.” 13 In speaking of a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.

    Hebrews 7 | Sovereign Strength for Today

    Hebrews 7, English Standard Version

    1 For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, 2 and to him Abraham apportioned a tenth part of everything. He is first, by translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then he is also king of Salem, that is, king of peace. 3 He is without father or mother or genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God he continues a priest forever. 4 See how great this man was to whom Abraham the patriarch gave a tenth of the spoils! 5 And those descendants of Levi who receive the priestly office have a commandment in the law to take tithes from the people, that is, from their brothers, though these also are descended from Abraham. 6 But this man who does not have his descent from them received tithes from Abraham and blessed him who had the promises. 7 It is beyond dispute that the inferior is blessed by the superior. 8 In the one case tithes are received by mortal men, but in the other case, by one of whom it is testified that he lives. 9 One might even say that Levi himself, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham, 10 for he was still in the loins of his ancestor when Melchizedek met him. 11 Now if perfection had been attainable through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need would there have been for another priest to arise after the order of Melchizedek, rather than one named after the order of Aaron? 12 For when there is a change in the priesthood, there is necessarily a change in the law as well. 13 For the one of whom these things are spoken belonged to another tribe, from which no one has ever served at the altar. 14 For it is evident that our Lord was descended from Judah, and in connection with that tribe Moses said nothing about priests. 15 This becomes even more evident when another priest arises in the likeness of Melchizedek, 16 who has become a priest, not on the basis of a legal requirement concerning bodily descent, but by the power of an indestructible life. 17 For it is witnessed of him, “You are a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.” 18 For on the one hand, a former commandment is set aside because of its weakness and uselessness 19 (for the law made nothing perfect); but on the other hand, a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God. 20 And it was not without an oath. For those who formerly became priests were made such without an oath, 21 but this one was made a priest with an oath by the one who said to him: “The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, ‘You are a priest forever.’” 22 This makes Jesus the guarantor of a better covenant. 23 The former priests were many in number, because they were prevented by death from continuing in office, 24 but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever. 25 Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. 26 For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. 27 He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself. 28 For the law appoints men in their weakness as high priests, but the word of the oath, which came later than the law, appoints a Son who has been made perfect forever.

    The Trap of the Thucydides Trap | The Causes of Things Ep. 24

    The Trap of the Thucydides Trap | The Causes of Things Ep. 24

    In the world of international politics, much has been made of the concept called the Thucydides Trap. Thucydides's Trap postulates that catastrophic war is a forgone conclusion when there is a new power rising that threatens the domination of an established power. Sadly, this reflexive concept has been idea-laundered throughout international think tanks for years, resulting in policies that demand the disintegration and weakening of the United States and the capitulation to the Communist Chinese Party. Today we will examine the trap of looking at the Thucydides Trap as an inevitable event as opposed to a situation that can be easily avoided through diplomacy and open discussion.

Finally

This is great to see a mainstream christian organization finally begin to address this. Men like Walter Veith (total onslaught) and Tom Horn (blood on the alter book) have been sounding the alarm for several decades. I hope this gains traction.

Explains everything....

Lots of important information to digest.

Unparalleled Academics

This podcast is deceptively short. There is SO much information one 10 minute segment can lead to days and weeks of study! Much thanks to Dr. Ted Broer of the Healthmasters podcast for the recommendation as this podcast is certainly a diamond in the rough here on iTunes.
