Updated: Nov 9
Well, today is Tuesday, November 8, 2022, the day of the most recent, and probably last, rigged American theater posing as a political election. The potential for a huge false flag event that might derail the alleged result of these fake contests that I wrote of to be prepared for in my prior post thankfully never happened. Over the past three weeks, I have stepped back and tried to make sense out of the combined effects of:
The midterm election carnage
The Russia - Ukraine war that was intentionally provoked by the leadership and media of the United States seems poised to erupt into a nuclear World War III at any moment
The energy, food and supply chain shortages that are besetting the entire world, especially Europe
The widespread cover up and censoring of the obvious and intentional deaths and disabling disabilities that are clearly caused by the Covid clot shots
The societal chaos and conflict created by the overt promotion of transgenderism among children
The fragile global financial markets that are poised for a collapse of biblical proportions
Forget the agendas and the aims of those promoting this chaos. It doesn't matter what vain and wicked men think and plan if the Bible is true, and it most assuredly is. But most people are guilty of profound ignorance and illiteracy of what the Bible says and means and its implications for our daily lives. The purpose of this article is to try to reveal what God is up to and why; because I have sought diligently to know God as He has revealed Himself to us in scripture for a number of years because I want to know and please Him in all that I do. I have this goal because everything the world places value on has revealed itself to me to be meaningless and false, and I am not the least interested in investing one minute of my life on anything that does not matter and does not last forever. Nor should you.
So in all the mess that defines the big developments in our world and nation today, what is God trying to teach some of us who are devoted to doing His will in all things? I will share with you here my own conclusions that I have arrived at recently because of events in my own life.
Buried within the depths of the Book of Proverbs, the book of wisdom of the Old Testament of the Bible, are the following passages:
"The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue is of the LORD (YHWH). All the ways of man are clean in his own eyes, but the LORD (YHWH) weigheth the spirits. Commit thy works unto the LORD (YHWH), and thy thoughts shall be established. The LORD (YHWH) hath made all things for himself; yes, even the wicked for the day of evil." Proverbs 16:1-4
"A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD (YHWH) directeth his steps." Proverbs 16:9
"Houses and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD (YHWH)." Proverbs 19:14
"There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD (YHWH) that shall stand." Proverbs 19:21
"Man's goings are of the LORD (YHWH); how can a man then understand his own way?" Proverbs 20:24
"Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD (YHWH) pondereth the hearts." Proverbs 21:2
"There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD (YHWH)." Proverbs 21:30
As we reflect on what the combined message of these seven passages is telling us, as I have, we can rightly conclude that every thought, person, and circumstance that comes into each of our lives from birth to death finds its origin and first cause in God. Our challenge, as mere human mortals, is to discover the patterns that God is creating in each of our lives that delivers a unique message to each one of us.
Knowing and reflecting upon this universal truth, and the words of these seven passages, we can rightly conclude that all the messes that make up the news stories of our world and nation with which we all are well familiar are deliberately being orchestrated by God for a distinct purpose. Throughout the Old Testament of the Bible, we see God being quite actively involved in men's lives and the course of history of the nation of ancient Israel. No story is more convincing of this than the ten plagues that God brought upon Egypt in the days of Moses and Aaron and the parting of the Red Sea, the saving of God's people and the total destruction of the Egyptian Pharaoh and his army. Now God is at it once again and no one knows the details of the plot which God has predestinated and is orchestrating, which has been unfolding for the last several years and is now approaching its inevitable climax. But many alternative news media pundits, including all the ones I often refer to as my sources of news that appear in my bl0g articles, make their daily speculations about what's coming and what their followers ought to do about it. But they really don't know. Because none of us do.
I have come to the conclusion that my daily monitoring of my preferred alternative news sources is driving me mad with anxiety and so I have largely stopped doing so. As a man thinketh, so is he. I'm tired, in fact I'm utterly exhausted, by trying to deduce precisely how God is likely to orchestrate world and national events in the near future. I know how this story ends, and it ends well for me. I know this with confidence because I know intimately and personally the all-powerful God, YHWH, who controls all things, including my safety, peace, serenity and well-being. God keeps reminding me:
"Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth." Psalm 46:10
My part in all of this mess is to be still and know that He is God and that He's fully got this, so I don't have to. Of course, that's easier said than done, but God has a way of breaking us and getting our obedience and cooperation. Over these past three weeks, YHWH has been doing just this to me, and I can assure you that He now has my full and undivided attention. Again, scripture tells us what He is up to. Let me explain.
I have had a bad back for some 23 years or so. I refer to it to myself and to God as my thorn in the flesh to keep me humble. And it most certainly does. The Apostle Paul introduces this concept in 2 Corinthians 12:7-9. In the case of Paul, his thorn in the flesh appears to have been his near total blindness. In my case, it has been my bad back. Like Paul, I have asked God many times to remove my thorn in my flesh and God has allowed his words to Paul to echo repeatedly in my own head as well:
"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest upon me." 2 Corinthians 12:9 (Boldface added for emphasis)
In recent weeks, I have purchased multiple low back pain exercise videos on the internet and attempted to follow them to learn how to activate, release and strengthen the muscles, tendons and ligaments in and around my sacroiliac joint that connects my sacrum (the triangular bone at the bottom of my back) to both sides of my pelvis for stability and strength. But at my relatively advanced age of 68, with many years of neglect, under-use and muscle, tendon and ligament atrophy, I have my work cut out for me to learn new ways of moving to repair damage I have done because of my ignorance and failure to move and exercise as I should have done years ago.
To make matters worse, I have shifted my diet from the acidic Standard American Diet (SAD) to a largely alkaline one for health and weight loss reasons. Recently, I have discovered that, while in general I have been eating a very healthy diet, I am low in iron, which is required to create hemoglobin, which carries oxygen on red blood cells to one's cells that is required for converting food into energy and to our brain. This has led to my being sleep deprived which saps me of energy and clear-headed thinking. So I need to slow down, adjust my diet with iron supplements and red meat and sleep deeper and longer. In short, I must be still and know that He is God. I cannot allow anxiety and stress to kill me.
I have sought and obtained expert help in all of this from my chiropractor and wholistic healthcare provider. But my head must be in the right place for any of this to work. I must be still and know that He is God and that when I am weak, He is strong and that He is more than capable of being sufficient for me in all things. He is capable of that for you too, if you will let Him, and only He decides if He will let you let Him. So be humble.
The bottom line in all this comes from God's holy and inspired word:
"Be still and know that I am God."
Because of my own recent journey, which I have just shared with you, I urge all of my readers to follow the same course and to largely turn off the alternative news reports and commentaries. It does none of us any good, and it often does great harm. I know and follow a number of activists who bombard their audiences with alternative news stories to try to awaken their audiences with the best of intentions, and frankly, it is having the opposite effect because it is creating great anxiety in those people and so they shut own and turn all of it off. God is the one who is orchestrating all of this behind the scenes too. It is not any of our jobs to awaken the strongly deluded masses of humanity to the realities of the global elite conspiracy or to its obvious connections to the fulfillment of many end times Bible prophecies. All we can do is to treat others gently with grace, kindness and compassion, as we would wish to be treated. God will do with it as He alone wills. Never forget this.
I welcome and invite your comments. Let us learn from one another. Above all, let us lead others by our own good and godly examples. This what true witnessing for God looks like.
