There are those who say that the poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the nation. They are wrong. The legislators are the prophets, both true and false. For false prophets set up cults, and demand worship forcibly. They destroy. They are generally approved by the secular authorities.
Take your victory lap, government! You’ve punished your loyal, trusting supporters far more effectively than we Purebloods ever could have. In fact, your fear-mongering is so effective that when we offer to help people unplug, we’re fighting back a grin at the antics that often follow their panicked refusal to rethink their new Normal.
What antics? Mostly passing out from a toxic combination of indignation, multiple face diapers and no cardio for two years. But we’ll happily add oopsies in the Tube to the list.
True prophets are not always pleasant. They have one job: to indicate to the people of the nation warnings when they apostatize, and remind of us of the future to come. The test of a true prophet is threefold: he possesses the spirit of God, he does not contradict scripture, and what he says comes true.
Jeremiah was not seen as powerful by the rulers of his time. But the rulers of his time were soon conquered. Despite them trying to silence Jeremiah.
For the word of God will always get out.
4 Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
6 Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.” 7 But the Lord said to me,
“Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’;
for to all to whom I send you, you shall go,
and whatever I command you, you shall speak.
8 Do not be afraid of them,
for I am with you to deliver you,
declares the Lord.”
9 Then the Lord put out his hand and touched my mouth. And the Lord said to me,
“Behold, I have put my words in your mouth.
10 See, I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms,
to pluck up and to break down,
to destroy and to overthrow,
to build and to plant.”
21 So he said to them again, “I am going away, and you will seek me, and you will die in your sin. Where I am going, you cannot come.” 22 So the Jews said, “Will he kill himself, since he says, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come’?” 23 He said to them, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. 24 I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am he you will die in your sins.” 25 So they said to him, “Who are you?” Jesus said to them, “Just what I have been telling you from the beginning. 26 I have much to say about you and much to judge, but he who sent me is true, and I declare to the world what I have heard from him.” 27 They did not understand that he had been speaking to them about the Father. 28 So Jesus said to them, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own authority, but speak just as the Father taught me. 29 And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.” 30 As he was saying these things, many believed in him.
31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”
34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. 35 The slave does not remain in the house for ever; the son remains for ever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37 I know that you are offspring of Abraham; yet you seek to kill me because my word finds no place in you. 38 I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father.”
We have many sins that are promoted to us, including despair, to the point of death. The engineered collapse of trades and businesses is vindictive: those who do it have blood on their hands, and the protests are getting martyrs.
But we should rejoice. The rancid rainbow, the intersectional system of lies, is being destroyed. On the streets. Right now.
Any feeling of despair over the System is a declaration of the victory of evil. Hope, faith, and love are crucial in the here and now, but we should remain vigilant about where we place our hope, faith, and love.
God is a loving Creator. He will never abandon you. He will never work against you. He will arrange the material world in such a way that it becomes what each of us needs to nurture our continued spiritual growth and development. Our continued spiritual growth and development may not necessarily entail our continued material growth and development. This is a difficult pill to swallow for some Christians, but swallowed it must be.
God will never abandon us. God will never work against us. We must remember not to abandon or work against Him. In fact, the time has come to take up the cause our ancestors neglected to take up and begin working with Him creatively. That requires a total shift in consciousness, but that is what is needed, now more than ever.
What does it mean to creatively work with God? It is to do his commands. To do his commands you need to hear the word of God — still, praise God, preached sufficiently — and do it.
We cannot align ourselves with evil and think we won’t end up evil. This is a time when the good is being divided from evil. Do not choose what the propaganda praises. Choose instead truth. Choose Christ.
And this evil elite? They deserve every act of noncompliance, every uttering of truth.
