You’d hafta be living under a rock somewhere, not to know about what has been happening to CNN. Most of us would call it justice, or payback. For others, it’s just reality finally making an appearance. But, there are other things going on, than just CNN:
The Failure of Energy.
There is a reason why these are the Last Days, and I believe that our obsessive reliance on oil is one of them. Or, maybe I should have said that the failure of oil, in the face of that obsession.
The Bible offers up quite a few examples of people who faced some of the same challenges that we will soon face, as these Last Days accelerate. Men and women throughout the Bible were tested in their resolve to believe God and obey Him. And, the Bible records these successes – in enough detail to draw strength from their example.
One of those examples is Gideon (pronounced in Hebrew: GEED-ohn). He was a nobody, with faith in God. That made him a ‘somebody’ in God’s eyes, an enough of a ‘somebody’ to be used by God to demonstrate the power of God.
My hope is that we will take these examples to heart, as we gaze into a terrifying future.
We live in a time when the truth has been ‘cast to the ground’. People no longer love the truth. They no longer believe in a universal, objective truth. Everything is now about pride and a subjective interpretation of the truth.
And, this is what the Antichrist will take advantage of, when he rises.
You MUST ‘buy the truth’, no matter what the cost. And, you must NEVER sell it away. Ever. It is more precious than diamonds or gold.
A lot happened this week. Too much, actually. Some stuff, painfully personal. Personal for you, as well.
I hate being a part of anything that causes pain. But, it’s better to suffer now, than to suffer far more, later. And, the truth ALWAYS hurts. ALWAYS.
I look at the truth in the mirror everyday, and I can tell you that I wish that the picture was a better one. But, I do my best to make each day count for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. And, I am hoping that you will do the same.
