Last night I was feeling the testing and trublulations up close and personal. I work 500m from where there was a mass stabbing yesterday, and Kea was told by her daughter and was about to phone me as I phoned her. The times are getting worse.
Our doofus of a PM said instantly that it was not a terrorist attack. While the supermarket is closed, and the police are reviewing CCTV, and the alleged perpetrator is being treated in the same hospital as the victims — there is only one big one here and it has to deal with all mergencies.
No details are let out except by our control freak PR droid of a PM or her minions. We have the government we deserve, who do not undertand t that if you sow evil you will reap a harvest of destruction.
Which is why the people of God were told to have nothing to do with them. ,
11 Love the Lord your God and keep his requirements, his decrees, his laws and his commands always. 2 Remember today that your children were not the ones who saw and experienced the discipline of the Lord your God: his majesty, his mighty hand, his outstretched arm; 3 the signs he performed and the things he did in the heart of Egypt, both to Pharaoh king of Egypt and to his whole country; 4 what he did to the Egyptian army, to its horses and chariots, how he overwhelmed them with the waters of the Red Sea as they were pursuing you, and how the Lord brought lasting ruin on them. 5 It was not your children who saw what he did for you in the wilderness until you arrived at this place, 6 and what he did to Dathan and Abiram, sons of Eliab the Reubenite, when the earth opened its mouth right in the middle of all Israel and swallowed them up with their households, their tents and every living thing that belonged to them. 7 But it was your own eyes that saw all these great things the Lord has done.
8 Observe therefore all the commands I am giving you today, so that you may have the strength to go in and take over the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, 9 and so that you may live long in the land the Lord swore to your ancestors to give to them and their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey. 10 The land you are entering to take over is not like the land of Egypt, from which you have come, where you planted your seed and irrigated it by foot as in a vegetable garden. 11 But the land you are crossing the Jordan to take possession of is a land of mountains and valleys that drinks rain from heaven. 12 It is a land the Lord your God cares for; the eyes of the Lord your God are continually on it from the beginning of the year to its end.
13 So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul— 14 then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil. 15 I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.
16 Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them. 17 Then the Lord’s anger will burn against you, and he will shut up the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce, and you will soon perish from the good land the Lord is giving you.
1 Timothy 6:13-16
13 In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you 14 to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.
At the moment Iwant to be left alone. I have this temptation: to shut down this blog, to leave the town, cash up, give up my trade and go bush. Because the storm is coming, and it will be not a nice gentle rain.
It will be, if we are luchy, the public destructionof the apostate, as happenedto those who said they were priests without the word of God appointing them. Dathan and his family were destroyed in an instant.
If we are unlucy, we will wleocme our new imperial overlords, who will not give a damn for any treaties or the culture or our ways. Theywill conquer and control.
For God will not be mocked. As a commentoator said yeserday, the Amorites will accuse God of injustice unless we suffer their fate.
Wehn Isreael went apostate, God did not spare them, but he left a remnant. There is no remnant of the Amorites.
THhis is not a time for crying that what is happening is unjust or unfair, and that we have been traumatized, and need justice. It is a time for tears, to acknowledge our wrong doing, to refomr our lives and neighbourhoods, and plead for revival and the mercy of God.
We need to do this, We cannot wait for permission for an apostate ruling class, who hare now blindfolded, Unless they repent, they are doomed to destruction.
