We are now being told to rejoice and expect good things. This is because President Johnson has held a summit conference with Kosygin to negotiate for the accomplishment of evil. I say negotiate for the accomplishment of evil, because nothing else can be negotiated with Kosygin, he will not agree to anything else. So far our leaders have always made it their most sacred principle to make some kind of agreement, if it were possible, at any sacrifice of honor and justice

Do you wonder that the results of these conferences, over the last decades, have been uniformly bad? It doesn't take a prophet to see the only possible result of such agreements, it is obvious to even the dullest minds. We can never take a firm stand for the right and tell Russia she'd better retreat, or else! No, we always back down and compromise with Russia for about half of what she demands. We always give her the victory without Russia having to fire a shot or take any risks. This is how communism has spread over half of the world in the last few decades.

The Bible records the first summit conference, the one held by Satan with Adam and Eve. Originally Satan held a position, which might be described as governor of this planet. He was a very important angel, given great power. However, this power must be exercised only in obedience to Yahweh. Then Satan rebelled against Yahweh, and thereby forfeited all rights to this power, and Adam was sent to take his place. At this time Adam was immortal, otherwise the warning that death was the penalty of disobedience would mean nothing, if he were going to die anyway.

The garden of Yahweh in Eden was not a plantation of ordinary trees and shrubs. The trees in it were the family trees of races and nations. In Ezekiel 31:3,5,8 & 9 Yahweh describes the garden and who was in it. "The Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon. His height was exalted above all the trees of the field. The cedars in the garden of Yahweh could not hide him: the fir trees were not like his boughs, and the chestnut trees were not like his branches; nor any tree in the garden of Yahweh was like him in his beauty. All the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of Yahweh, envied him."

You can't find any tree in a park or forest that envies anybody; it just isn't that kind of tree. Adam was warned not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  No tree has knowledge or experience of good and evil, except a family tree of people. Yahweh didn't create a special new being Adam, just to spade up the ground, Yahweh already had millions of pre Adamic people for that purpose. Adam was put here to take the place of Satan and to govern the racial family trees of the world, and to rule them with Yahweh's laws.

Adam like ourselves shrank from the unpleasant duty of throwing out wrongdoers by force. Before he got around to it, Satan had held a summit conference with Eve. Eve seems to have acted as Adam's state department. Satan suggested that Eve give his plan a fair trial, to see if it wasn't as good as he said, this seemed reasonable to Eve. Adam decided that after all, as long as they were talking, they weren't fighting. Therefore an agreement for peaceful coexistence, arrived at by negotiation, was better than war.

Adam went along with the plan, overlooking the obvious facts that no proposal from an evil source will ever be other than evil. The wicked always negotiate for their own advantage and our disadvantage. Compromise with evil has never produced anything but more evil. Adam and Eve learned the hard way, unfortunately we never learn at all.

Matthew chapter 4 and Luke chapter 4 record the next summit conference. This summit conference was between Satan and Yahshua, it records, "The devil, taking Him up into an high mountain, showed unto Him all the kingdoms of the world, in a moment of time. And the devil said unto Him, All this power will I give Thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and whomsoever I will give it. If Thou therefore will worship me, all shall be Thine."

What the devil was really saying was if Yahshua would recognize his power and authority, he would recognize His, and then we will peacefully coexist. This is exactly what Kosygin has already proposed, and probably repeated to President Johnson. "You recognize my rightful authority over all the enslaved nations and I will recognize you and NATO as rulers of the free world."

Take careful note of this, Yahshua did not fall for it. He knew that the powers of evil are never sincere and will never keep their word. Even more important, He knew that good couldn't derive its authority from evil. Whenever you concede the power of evil as being of lawful right, you concede all the victory. Yahshua was offered other opportunities to compromise with evil. The compromise would be to tone down His own preaching into something which would not offend the ruling powers, thus to avoid war with them.

Not once did Yahshua ever yield to this temptation. He knew that His firm insistence upon truth and right was forcing the issue to a point that must lead them to murder Him. He also knew that abandoning the right and yielding a shameful victory to the powers of evil, also led to death. It would be a death from which there would not be a resurrection to glory.

What can we expect to negotiate at any summit conference? Will it be the release of the enslaved nations of Europe, from the communist yoke? No, for the Reds have never been willing to negotiate for this, and to our eternal shame, we have never even asked for it! Having betrayed all Eastern Europe to the Reds, in a political deal for the liberal vote here at home, we have ever since been content to keep this evil bargain. We have never insisted upon even talking about freedom for our brothers, much less doing anything about it. Are you surprised that the giant Skoda arms factories in Czechoslovakia, which we delivered intact to Russia, have ever since been working 24 hours a day making arms to be used against us? How can you escape the consequences of evil without undoing the wrong, which you have done? It is not only that we have done wrongful acts in the past. Such wrongful acts create wrongful conditions, which remain to plague us until we set them right. Like all burdensome debts, this one draws a heavy rate of interest, and becomes harder and harder to pay as time goes on.

The only thing we can negotiate with Russia is some further triumph for Russia, something that increases their strength and weakens us. The communist beachhead in Cuba, which our own State Department helped to create, now threatens our Atlantic coast cities with atomic rockets. We lack the integrity and the courage to do anything about it. In order to appease the Reds in Cuba, which of our allies are we about to betray in our negotiations, or will it be an agreement for general disarmament? That will be uttersuicide for the entire free world

Conferences with evil are never at the summit; they are always in the pit of hell. What does it matter if we send the president or one of his underlings, if we are only going to negotiate the step by step surrender to evil? We cringe before Castro, while he builds bomber bases 90 miles off our eastern coast. What respect can we command from Russia?

Until we have recovered our lost courage and our lost honor, there should be no summit conferences whatsoever. When we are once again ready to speak with the authoritative voice of courage and power, to redeem our own hemisphere from the first beachhead of communism without first whimpering for somebody's permission to do so, then again I say no conferences

We should take a firm stand for truth, right and honor. We should say, these are our terms; there is nothing to negotiate, for we will not take anything less. This does not risk war; it is the only way to possibly avoid it. Our current pose of weakness in retreat, invites attack. If we take a firm stand and meant it, Russia would yield. Russia knows we have the power to so destroy her so she could never recover.

The only summit is with Yahshua and His righteousness, not with Kosygin and his malice, cruelty and treachery. LET'S GET OUT OF THE PIT!
