“The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up. The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity.” - Micah
Such an age has surfaced again. The valley of the Shadow of Death grows wide and dark. Its wicked inhabitants plead their master's case across our land. The Fool has risen to power and made the good man his foot stool. They rejoice in perversion, and their peace lies in iniquity. Indeed, the age of the watchmen has come, let us make confusion their prize.
In such times, it is required that a Remnant form. An unwavering force with which the pervading evil must contend. A needed backstop, holding firmly against the crushing weight of the pestilence. – A Shadow Knight.
This evil that pervades our land conducts warfare on three plains – Spiritually, (by the unseen powers and principalities of darkness) Physically, (by acts of perversion and violence carried out by those in service) and Personally (by the inward corruption of the Flesh within us all). For this reason, Shadow Knight Defense exists, to awaken the deceived by the light of the Truth, to build the Remnant. To inspire a new generation of Knights willing to ride into the shadow of the valley of death. Knights capable of resisting unto blood, striving against sin. The valley of the shadow of death is something we all must enter. will we fear the evil therein? Will we walk the broad path of destruction? - I pray not. Avoidance is to be Deceived. rather, we may choose to become conquerors or slaves unto death. We must therefore evade the quicksand of fear and the torment of cowardice by renewing our minds. Only by an immovable foundation and a sharpened sword will such a Remnant prevail.
Shadow Knight Crest
We Fear God and Rely on His Guidance for Success. - To Fear is to willfully Obey out of Reverence. To Fear God, we must first Know God (seek and study). When we Know God, we will Love God. When we Love God we will follow His Just commands.
We have a common aim. – It is imperative that we have a clear path forward, set apart from the ways of those who would oppose. A path birthed from the necessity to become greater than Conquerors. It is not enough to resist; one must quell the flow of evil.
We strive towards our aim in the form of Dying to Self. – We put to death those parts of us at enmity against our common aim. To cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of flesh and spirit, in the Fear of God, leaving no room for the carnal trojan horse. Self-Control and Self Respect are the Wise man’s Shield against deception and degeneracy.
Imbued with the style and strength of old-world political symbolism, the SK Crest evokes a feeling of grandeur whilst remaining simplistic in form, becoming both unmistakable and unforgettable. Originating from a rich family heritage, the crest is rooted in the God-centered, nationalistic, philosophically driven, and anti-communist ideals on life, family, and state that were fought for. Thus, its imagery provides the ideal balance of homage to the struggles and ideals of the past whilst its core tenants embody the very essence of what it means to be a Shadow Knight.
As it was written many years ago, it remains true today. 2 Samuel 23:3 states- "He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.” As men, as Shadow Knights, as the rightful arbiters of societal ideals, it is our job to uphold justice in the reverence of God and with the Love of God. A true revelation of the Love of God does not promote weakness, rather it instils within oneself a deep hatred for evil and sin. With this revelation comes a heavy duty. A duty to stand strong together with one pure aim, striving unto death against all forms of evil, just as Christ our example did.
