Naming a Peace Prize After the Father of High Explosives

Alfred Nobel

In 1867, Alfred Nobel invented dynamite, launching the young inventor into the heights of high explosives.

Having owned an armaments factory–and eventually becoming the owner of 90 more–as well as a string of inventions which included the blasting cap, dynamite and various forms of high explosives, Nobel (like so many others approaching death who amassed wealth and the things of the world) wanted the world to remember him fondly.

So, eight years before he shuffled off to his final reward, Alfred Nobel donated most of his fortune to fund the NOBEL PRIZE, a sort of award which ensured that the men of several generations would remember Nobel’s name in association with his prizes–instead of the countless deaths his other creations caused.

Nobel’s will established the funding for the Prizes in ChemistryLiteraturePeacePhysics, and Physiology or Medicine.

Other prizes associated with the process were later established (such as Economics), but these are not to be called Nobel Prizes.

The Nobel Prizes are the epitome of the world’s recognition of man.  As such, they further the aims of the world.  That the prizes somehow reward selfless research and development is one of the stories told by those who administer the prizes.

In reality, the Nobel Prizes further the various stories and deceptions used by the world to deceive modern man.

Forget for a moment the absurdity of naming a Peace Prize after the father of high explosives.  There are other ways the reader might determine the real purpose of the Nobel Prizes.

For example, in 2009, (after only serving as president of the USA for about 10 months), Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.

According to Nobel’s will, the Peace Prize shall be awarded to the person who in the preceding year “shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses”.

In the year before he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, Barack Obama was a U.S. Senator from Illinois, perhaps best known for his grand total of sponsoring two bills which became law. Obama was also well-known for his many speeches, with the US press anointing each one as the “greatest speech ever given.”

Likewise, in 2016, singer Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.”  While some of Dylan’s songs were certainly hum-able, they were not considered–even by his most ardent admirers–as Great American Literature.

The Nobel Prizes are only one more end times deception: they are an attempt to shower the world’s acclaim on those who do the work of the world and who further the evil ends of the prince of this wicked world, Satan.

“Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”
–John 12:31

For over 100 years, the wealth amassed by Alfred Nobel has bought the world’s acclaim and good thoughts.

The “world’s acclaim” has also been called “the pride of life.”

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1JOHN 2:15-16

And while some may wonder, “How many more years?“, it is suspected that Nobel’s wealth will fund his legacy at least until the climax of human history (the return of Jesus Christ).

In fact, the Nobel Prizes are one man’s attempt at Buying a Pleasant Memory of Himself.

Of course, that pleasant memory comes, not only with a very high price tag, but with a relatively short shelf life as well.

“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”
–Isaiah 65:17

DOES the reader have a favorable opinion of the Nobel Prizes?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
