One of the things that we cannot avoid is the cycle of nations. From foundation to degeneration. The moving of nations is in the hand of God. In times of climate change, people move -- and when an empire is effete, it gets invaded. It does not matter what you think in this situation: your uniform is your nation, and your loyalty should be there too.
There is a reason that I pray for revival, and talk about revival. Selfishness. I want my family to be spared the strife of revolution and land wars. My family has a history of evacuation from the Taranaki settlement because the local tribe was going to over run the town -- and yes, I've talked to people descended from the Taranaki iwi who have equally bloody stories. In war, very bad things happen.
For the non kiwis, this is at the same time as the American Civil War.
The current elite want to avoid this by regulating speech and behaviour. They are weaponizing the courts. They are using the COVID virus to get us used to having our social life at their permission.
This will end badly. We need to turn to God instead.
A Psalm of David.
28 To You, O Lord, I call;
My rock, do not be deaf to me,
For if You are silent to me,
I will become like those who go down to the pit.
2 Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to You for help,
When I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.
3 Do not drag me away with the wicked
And with those who work iniquity,
Who speak peace with their neighbors,
While evil is in their hearts.
4 Requite them according to their work and according to the evil of their practices;
Requite them according to the deeds of their hands;
Repay them their recompense.
5 Because they do not regard the works of the Lord
Nor the deeds of His hands,
He will tear them down and not build them up.
6 Blessed be the Lord,
Because He has heard the voice of my supplication.
7 The Lord is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart exults,
And with my song I shall thank Him.
8 The Lord is their strength,
And He is a saving defense to His anointed.
9 Save Your people and bless Your inheritance;
Be their shepherd also, and carry them forever.
3 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, 4 always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all, 5 in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now. 6 For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. 7 For it is only right for me to feel this way about you all, because I have you in my heart, since both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of grace with me. 8 For God is my witness, how I long for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. 9 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, 10 so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ; 11 having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
12 Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel, 13 so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole praetorian guard and to everyone else, 14 and that most of the brethren, trusting in the Lord because of my imprisonment, have far more courage to speak the word of God without fear.
The good thing about this time is that even the pgans can see that the elite are no longer rational. Rationalism is racism, and it has been left a few miles away by the current inter-sectional herd of leaders. Horses are more sensible.
The Z man ain't of the faith, and if a libertarian can see this, the progressives are lost.
The striking thing about this new faith is it is so primitive. These people are a very long way from the Christian looking up from Scripture and contemplating how God set the world in motion. These are people cowering in the darkness, deathly afraid to know what lies behind the movements of the world. Theirs is a world haunted by dread and foreboding, not a world of miracles to be explored. This is the great darkness that is settling on this age, the new dark age of the West.
This is not a time to take the ticket. It is a time to proclaim Christ. The genertaion of 1968 have failed, and this is the end game of their idea that we can be without heaven, hell, without truth, without consequences.
But we are called not to be like them, but to witness instead truth, honour, beauty and love: above all Christ, for God is agape: true love.
