This is a time when governments are falling and there is nothing in the press. The enemy wants you unfit, asleep or distracted. The press is all about the impeachment of a president who they also say is going to be out of power in four days. We are not supposed to notice the incohernece. Or the stupidity.
Instead we are supposed to be distracted by the latest scandal involving the Kardashians, by whatever pretty thing is putting stuff on Instagram, in getting likes on social media, and in having a better car, stereo, or gaming rig.. They media say that th elikes and followers we have are our friends. But they won’t bring food around when you are sick or help you dig a garden. It is alie, it is false friendship on institutional betrayal.
It is time to simply walk away, and be on our own platforms.
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.Psalm 139:1-6
139 O Lord, you have searched me and known me!
2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
you discern my thoughts from afar.
3 You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways.
4 Even before a word is on my tongue,
behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.
5 You hem me in, behind and before,
and lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
it is high; I cannot attain it.
21 Indeed the Lord visited Hannah, and she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters. And the young man Samuel grew in the presence of the Lord. 22 Now Eli was very old, and he kept hearing all that his sons were doing to all Israel, and how they lay with the women who were serving at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 23 And he said to them, “Why do you do such things? For I hear of your evil dealings from all the people. 24 No, my sons; it is not a good report that I hear the people of the Lord spreading abroad. 25 If someone sins against a man, God will mediate for him, but if someone sins against the Lord, who can intercede for him?” But they would not listen to the voice of their father, for it was the will of the Lord to put them to death.1 Samuel 2:21-25
25 “Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps[a] and went to meet the bridegroom.[b] 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, 4 but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5 As the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept. 6 But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise answered, saying, ‘Since there will not be enough for us and for you, go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ 10 And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut. 11 Afterwards the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ 12 But he answered, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.Matthew 25:1-13
If we are not to be asleep, and not actively to sin,, how does this look? It looks like disengagement. You are not participating in those things that look and are actual evil. You do not give the devil his due. You concentrate on that which is eternal, which is people. But those who have unpersoned themselves in the seeking of virtue signal points and in their seeking of praise from the woke and debased will end up like the foolish virgins, without what they need to survive or enter into the kingdom of heaven.
And that kingdom is truth, justice, honour and beauty. All the things the woke hate.
In fact – the first thing that can be done is to cease actively-supporting the Hell Agenda by innumerable expressions, words and deeds; on a daily/ hourly/ minute-by-minute basis… Even though such expressions, words and deeds are socially sub-optimal. (That, in itself, is a great deal more than most people are doing.) More profoundly and spiritually; try to think with clarity and truth about things. This means noticing, challenging, and working to break your own bad habits of evil-aligned, Satan-supporting thinking. (For example the practice of constructing excuses for evil; explaining it away, attributing non-evil motives. This behaviour is very, very common; almost automatic for some people – especially women.) And make your-self, thereby, a potential conduit for divine help; because God can do good in this world only when there are Men who are open to his guidance. Be one of those MenBruce Charlton.
What we need to do is ghost. We slowly, quietly, without fanfore, stop paying for those things that don’t help. The streatming meida companies promoting debasedment of minors go. The devil mouse that destroys entire movie franchises joins it.
We stop using facebook and start living. We let the twitter storms go on without us. We stop watching the news and instead listen to worship.
The blog may be digitial, but the journal isn handwritten.
Un this we shall pray. Not as much for discernment, but that we shall be consistent in our duty. It is not ancient instnct that we want to guide us, though that is more accurate than a cellphone, but instead the spirit of God.
And we are not to be asleep right now. This is a crisis, and we shall stand in a place of strength, which is Christ, who knows us fully.
