In fact, you might even say that the founding of America was one of them.
The problem is that they are often not what we want them to be, or what we expected. And, that’s a problem because we often try to skip those appointments because they don’t fit our idea of what a ‘proper appointment’ should be.
You’ve probably had lots of those if you are a follower of Christ.
If you AREN’T a follower of Christ, there’s one truly awful appointment that you will not avoid, unless you become one.
The amount of deception flooding the world is amazing. Worse, it’s flooding our churches. Deception is everywhere. Separating the truth from the lies… is hard. In fact, it’s an almost insurmountable challenge.
If you hardly know where to begin, in the process of separating truth from fiction, you have my sympathy. I know how you feel, and I struggle with this every single day. But, my hope is that you will win by doing what I am doing:
Reading the Bible. Every. Day.
If you are truly a child of God, you will win. You will see the difference between the lie and the truth.
You undoubtedly feel the same sense of relief that I do. The most vile politician in recent memory did not find her way into the Oval Office.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t mean that her opponent was a good choice for president. It just means that we won’t cringe quite so much when we hear his name attached to the words ‘President of the United States’.
Furthermore, I hope that you will understand when I caution you against euphoria over the outcome of this election. Judgment is coming, for our sins are great.
The immediate future is beyond awful. In fact, when I look out over the course of current events it is difficult to see ANY good news in our future. War, corruption and the vilest of evils weigh so heavily upon our future that I cringe at the thought of what is coming.
Yet, there is hope.
Unfortunately, the context of that ‘hope’ will be the death of a billion people. But, those who have prepared for that ‘hope’ will have the opportunity to fulfill their destiny in service to God.
Those who ignore the need to prepare will experience horrors beyond my willingness to contemplate.
We all have been watching the antics of the candidates and the press. The corruption that they have revealed is so far beyond revolting, that I can barely stand it. If this doesn’t reveal the true nature of our political system – and our society – nothing will.
But, I want to be done with it. It wears on me, and I’m betting that it wears on you.
However, there’s something worse than this election. And, you do NOT want that to happen.
We are just a month away from the US elections. The media has been breathlessly focused on the dog and pony show that passes for ‘democracy’ in the US. Unfortunately, this election won’t change the problems that we face, or the foolishness of our governments.
And frankly, I’d like to get on with talking about those things that matter. Unfortunately, this election is also revealing to the average person how awful our governments are.
You and I knew that they were really bad, but now a lot of the less knowledgeable now know.
Things have been happening this week. We had the first big debate of this year’s US election. (Did anyone catch the wires on Hillary?) Obama got vetoed on the 9/11 bill, and that has the Saudis in a tizzy. The reputation of the FBI is falling fast. We have even MORE evidence about how they try to manipulate us. More and more evidence keeps rising about Gog and Magog.
And yet ANOTHER typhoon took a whack at us, in our Little island of Taiwan. And, it got personal.
