I was talking with a mate today. He said that htis looks like the end of the USA, and who could have predicted that. I said that it could be the end of the welfare state as we know it. And in this God will be glorified. And no, we were not in church.
My old man talked to me today. He is trying to pivot in his ministry work so he does not run afoul of the hate speech laws that will be coming. And then I read this.
The days are about to get even worse than they have been. 2020 will pale in comparison to what we will see in 2021 and beyond. Prepare for persecution. Persecution is coming to all Christians and Conservatives in this country regardless of who gets into office. Continue to prep as much as you can. Read and listen to the Word of God, repent daily, pray, and trust in Him for your salvation.
For the coming of His anointed One in the clouds of heaven for the judgment of the wicked is nigh.
This has me feeling rather Levitical. I want to see justice. What I see, instead, is an elite who have rejected truth and justice and beauty and the God who made them... and then hidden anything true and beautiful and noble and honourable, for they point to the God who made them.
There is a revival among young people, for they know the education system is not for truth but indoctrination, and they hunger for truth and the word of God.
When the truth is expressed clearly, it is now called hate speech, and like a certain green frog, seen as a signifier that you need to have the truth removed from you, because you are not worshiping the false national Gods of this moment.
But that is riling God. You do not want to have his justice, for it is true, and pure. Only good will survive, and no man is that Good.
7 The Lord has sworn by the pride of Jacob:
“Surely I will never forget any of their deeds.
8 Shall not the land tremble on this account,
and everyone mourn who dwells in it,
and all of it rise like the Nile,
and be tossed about and sink again, like the Nile of Egypt?”
9 “And on that day,” declares the Lord God,
“I will make the sun go down at noon
and darken the earth in broad daylight.
10 I will turn your feasts into mourning
and all your songs into lamentation;
I will bring sackcloth on every waist
and baldness on every head;
I will make it like the mourning for an only son
and the end of it like a bitter day.
11 “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord God,
“when I will send a famine on the land—
not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,
but of hearing the words of the Lord.
12 They shall wander from sea to sea,
and from north to east;
they shall run to and fro, to seek the word of the Lord,
but they shall not find it.
13 “In that day the lovely virgins and the young men
shall faint for thirst.
14 Those who swear by the Guilt of Samaria,
and say, ‘As your god lives, O Dan’,
and, ‘As the Way of Beersheba lives’,
they shall fall, and never rise again.”
20 Brothers, do not be children in your thinking. Be infants in evil, but in your thinking be mature. 21 In the Law it is written, “By people of strange tongues and by the lips of foreigners will I speak to this people, and even then they will not listen to me, says the Lord.” 22 Thus tongues are a sign not for believers but for unbelievers, while prophecy is a sign not for unbelievers but for believers. 23 If, therefore, the whole church comes together and all speak in tongues, and outsiders or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are out of your minds? 24 But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or outsider enters, he is convicted by all, he is called to account by all, 25 the secrets of his heart are disclosed, and so, falling on his face, he will worship God and declare that God is really among you.
We have to be be vary clear here. This world is not rational. It is not asking the real questions, such a swhy are we doing this and what is the end goal. Instead it is relying of rhetorical circularity.
This is how the morality of Healthism goes: Because I am terrified of invisible rabid-leper-zombies, I want everybody kept away from me and wearing masks - but I know that this doesn't really work - but I want it anyway because I am terrified of invisible rabid-leper-zombies.
But because I am a Leftist, I care more about other people than myself; so I want to wear a mask because I might be an invisible rabid-leper-zombie. If not today, then tomorrow.
Indeed, I demand that I myself, and everybody else, be compelled to wear a mask; because when it comes to an invisible rapid-leper-zombie We Just Don't Know that anybody is safe to be in proximity to anybody else.
Therefore, I keep my distance from everybody I most love and care for; and I demand they do the same for me; and I want this made compulsory, to make sure; because nothing is worse than an invisible rabid-leper-zombie.
(Except a White Supremacist, obviously.)
the trouble with healthism and hedonism is that it cannot account for the times that you consider yourself less useful than a blunted knife. WHen things appear dark. When you are ill, unfit, and struggling.
You do not know how your witness to others glorifies God at this time.
So we have a task, brothers. We need to rediscover and republish the good old stuff. We need to preach Christ crucified, though he is not fashionable, and the gospel will deemed divisive, non inclusive, hateful.
And we shall not swear on the new gods of the nations. Our elite may degenerate into pagan ritual. But we are not to be like them.
