I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.
We all need those special family times. As we move into the period of history I see us moving in to those times will become even more special and needed.
On a personal note, I have been blessed with two wonderful and wise Christian parents. They are both what I would call traditional godly parents. They have tried through the years to teach us right and wrong, not just by their words but mainly by their actions.
Over the past few years, I have enjoyed many very deep and enlightening conversations with them. My father has been a minister since the mid 1970's. Not only does he have biblical knowledge, he has what I will call worldly knowledge and common sense logic. I claim whatever of those skills I have came from him and his teachings.
The day after Christmas this year I went over to their house to help clean up after the family gathering Christmas night. As usual mom already had most of it done. That's just her way. The house is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy she says. It certainly never stays messy for very long though.
Anyways, as is often the case, dad and I began a rather deep discussion. I generally begin the discussion with some question about something I have been pondering. This time it was a question about how humans have or have not changed since the old testament times.
I consider myself somewhat of a student of human nature. So my point was that I did not believe we were any different overall as individuals. He made some points that were extremely thought provoking to me. I'll paraphrase and share some of his common sense logic with you.
1. There has always been and always will be a struggle of good and evil.
2. If you follow bloodlines through the bible and history, many times you see the lines mainly adhering to either good or evil. In the bible, Abraham's direct lineage stayed mostly on the side of good and followed God. Ishmael's lineage, Abraham's son by a concubine, tended to evil. Sin begets sin and evil begets evil he said. As certain lineages grew more powerful they were able to influence either a turn to good or a turn to evil. Yes, humans DO make a choice to be evil just like they make a choice to be good. It's called free will. We aren't God's robots. Although, history does show that certainly lineages have the tendency to either good or evil.
3. Periods of history show one side or the other having dominance at different times.
4. We are moving into a period of evil being dominate for several reasons. The biggest one is that western civilization is shrinking. We are not having enough children to stay ahead of the death curve. So in essence our "good" culture is literally dying.
The end point of our conversation and the point I want to make here is that humans are still humans. Nothing throughout our entire history on this planer has ever truly changed, it just goes in a circle. It's just human nature.
Knowing that helps us to know the future with almost total certainty. No we can't know the time line for sure but we definitely can know what's coming based on what has happened in the past.
In the old testament, Israel constantly had cycles of good and evil. They would turn to God and prosper, then turn away from God and suffer, many times horribly.
Whether you believe in God or not. Whether you believe what we discussed about lineages and "God's people" or not.
In this situation that doesn't matter and it doesn't change the facts of history and human nature. When humans turn TO good, they prosper, when they turn away from good, they suffer. THAT IS THE POINT!
We are in one of those periods of turning AWAY from good/God right now. So, at some point, history tells us it will catch up to us and we will suffer the consequences for our actions.
No one on this earth knows how long we have before we "hit the wall" but it's coming faster and faster with every passing day.
What better reason do we have to take whatever actions we can to protect and prepare our families first and then our Country is possible.
Today is the time to make your decision to take action. Take at least one step toward being more self sufficient today.
We MUST be continuing the withdrawal of our consent to be governed on a daily basis. It's the only semi-peaceful option we have left. Meaning we will do it peacefully if the government will allow us. That's doubtful of course.
