The people of the restoration to come will not be those who you think will be there. It won’t be the broz, pumped, or those who trust their preps. A fair number will have been crippled. More will have been shunned and despised by this time. The greatest temptation you face is when you are successful. It is those who know that they are not successful, who have failed, who Christ will bring back. Christ will restore, instead, the casualties of this spiritual and economic cold war.
Then none of us will be able to say it was by our might and strength. In this time we have but glimpses of truth in an ocean of lies. But we can be led to truth by God.
Such people (and I think there are many of them; and nearly all of us, for much of the time) live is a state of un-fixable, chronic confusion. They are unsure about everything – all of the time, because all of their ideas are wrong.
And even if they – by chance – stumble-upon a truth, they will not be able to recognise that truth intuitively – it will be indistinguishable from the distracting mass of errors; because their motivations are to use that truth in some way that sustains the side of evil; against God and divine creation.
Those who are evil are the ones who are now dancing. In the hope that they are relevant. This is not how things will be.
6 In that day, declares the Lord,
I will assemble the lame
and gather those who have been driven away
and those whom I have afflicted;
7 and the lame I will make the remnant,
and those who were cast off, a strong nation;
and the Lord will reign over them in Mount Zion
from this time forth and for evermore.
8 And you, O tower of the flock,
hill of the daughter of Zion,
to you shall it come,
the former dominion shall come,
kingship for the daughter of Jerusalem.
9 Now why do you cry aloud?
Is there no king in you?
Has your counsellor perished,
that pain seized you like a woman in labour?
10 Writhe and groan, O daughter of Zion,
like a woman in labour,
for now you shall go out from the city
and dwell in the open country;
you shall go to Babylon.
There you shall be rescued;
there the Lord will redeem you
from the hand of your enemies.
11 Now many nations
are assembled against you,
saying, “Let her be defiled,
and let our eyes gaze upon Zion.”
12 But they do not know
the thoughts of the Lord;
they do not understand his plan,
that he has gathered them as sheaves to the threshing floor.
13 Arise and thresh,
O daughter of Zion,
for I will make your horn iron,
and I will make your hoofs bronze;
you shall beat in pieces many peoples;
and shall devote their gain to the Lord,
their wealth to the Lord of the whole earth.
18 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was made bright with his glory. 2 And he called out with a mighty voice,
“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!
She has become a dwelling place for demons,
a haunt for every unclean spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast.
3 For all nations have drunk
the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality,
and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her,
and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living.”
4 Then I heard another voice from heaven saying,
“Come out of her, my people,
lest you take part in her sins,
lest you share in her plagues;
5 for her sins are heaped high as heaven,
and God has remembered her iniquities.
6 Pay her back as she herself has paid back others,
and repay her double for her deeds;
mix a double portion for her in the cup she mixed.
7 As she glorified herself and lived in luxury,
so give her a like measure of torment and mourning,
since in her heart she says,
‘I sit as a queen,
I am no widow,
and mourning I shall never see.’
8 For this reason her plagues will come in a single day,
death and mourning and famine,
and she will be burned up with fire;
for mighty is the Lord God who has judged her.”
9 And the kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived in luxury with her, will weep and wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning. 10 They will stand far off, in fear of her torment, and say,
“Alas! Alas! You great city,
you mighty city, Babylon!
For in a single hour your judgement has come.”
For the last few years the progressives have been pushing a compromise on our morality and sexuality. It started by saying that what couples did in the privacy of their bedroom was morally neutral, and it has ended with any suggestion that one preaches against sexual vice of any type is hate speech. It has led to the emasculation of the church. The correct response to these vices is to purge such people from leadership and help them manage their temptations. But the church fears the rainbow, and won’t do much. Peter Damien, writing in a time of clerical corruption after the first millennium, put it this way.
Listen, you do-nothing superiors of clerics and priests. Listen, and even though you feel sure of yourselves, tremble at the thought that you are partners in the guilt of others; those, I mean, who wink at the sins of their subjects that need correction and who by ill-considered silence allow them license to sin. Listen, I say, and be shrewd enough to understand that all of you alike are deserving of death, that is, not only those who do such things, but also they who approve those who practice them (Rom 1:32).
So, this is what will happen. Those branches of the church, those pastors, those priests, who compromise with the spirit of tolerance — who preach intolerance of evil as a sin, and are shocked, shocked, to find that the evil is among them when any person of older generations would have said if you put temptation in front of people some will yield — will fail. The progressive secular process will fail, because Progressives are too busy being activists to raise children. The future is for those who turn up (which is why the progressives are importing people: the know the conservative native population do have kids).
Christ will prune the ungodly from among us. The rainbow will again be a sign of blessing from God. This time will end.
So, in all things be faithful. Let the elite tell you that your vice is natural and normal: they want us enslaved, and they lie. We all sin. Allow the spirit of God to take every aspect and move it towards the glory of God.
And ignore the current rancid rainbow. It is as real as unicorn poo.
