I talked to an old friend this morning, who wanted to get together with me to discuss my take on world events and Biblical prophecy. This is a significant departure from the reactions I have been getting from friends and others, whom are very familiar with my current thinking and have voted in the negative and with their feet. I have always understood that standing up for truth would be a divisive stance, but I never realized that so many would outright reject what is so plainly in front of them and want to drink the kool aid believing things are going to get magically better and that God does not send judgments for behaviors that many believe are no longer considered sinful.
This friend states he thinks what I told him over a dozen years ago is coming to fruition. What I was more pleased with though, was his insight into the current situation, and mentioned he had been using a methodology taught to me, which I subsequently taught to him, by an organization that is very wise as well as God lead. It also sounds like he has been struggling with many in his circle in telling them what he thinks, and it seems we will both have some time to process these matters in a way that will be beneficial and informative to both of us.
It seems the battle lines are more demarcated and people have to make decisions they don’t like. It is not an issue of what one likes or what is comfortable; it is becoming an issue of one being forced to look at the reality around him and having to decide for himself what to do, or not to do about it. It seems those who are choosing to see the reality around them are starting to do something about it, and it is causing existential angst with those who want to continue on with their Polly Anna view of things. It seems that nearly everyone can tell something is up, but it also seems that the majority of those have a magical view of the world and cannot fathom or accept that our way of life can radically change or even end.
There is no pleasure derived by writing about such matters, but it does no good to gloss over what ought to be so apparent and believe all of the talking heads that proclaim ‘the recession is over, or things are getting back on track’ when there is absolutely no evidence of such things. It is extremely likely that we all will have to make gut wrenching decisions during the next year, and most are not prepared. It is really immoral to see things happening and not put out warnings for people to at least consider. What they do about it is on them.
So, it will be those who look with honesty and act on this, which will ultimately find a sense of peace and calmness, despite what those who want to ignore and deny say and do. Action in the right direction will quell most feelings of anxiety and depression one may be feeling, but it first requires the ability to take an honest look at one’s environment and see what is really going on and anticipate where the end of the road will lead. It is not as difficult as one may think it is, but it will be way more difficult if one chooses the Polly Anna route to only find out they were on the wrong road, and the wolves are all around them with no way out.
