Get Wisdom or Die

One of my many faults is my lack of patience with fools and foolishness. There just isn’t enough time to fix a fool, and I don’t have the energy for it. The only thing that I can do is point out the fools, so that the wise don’t get tarnished by their message. And yes, fools have a message, and they want you to buy it.

The only defense against a fool is wisdom. Some think that knowledge is the key, but it’s not. Knowledge is just an input to wisdom.

And, without wisdom, you have no hope for survival as our system dies.

CNN, Energy and Great Deception

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.

Great Deception.

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 other is deception upon deception.

Stubbornness and Rebellion

Rebellion among Christians is on the rise. I wish that it wasn’t so, but the comments and emails that I’m receiving tell me that it is so. And, God has this to say about rebellion:

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry…

 – 1 Samuel 15:23b

Far too many claim to be followers of God, while rebelling against Him. This is an abomination in the sight of God, the same as if you were a witch or a Satanist.

If you don’t understand that, then you are doomed.

Suffering Fools

It’s been a long week, and there’s only so much outrage that you can suffer until you begin to realize that you’ve been on a fool’s errand.

Why?

‘cuz you just can’t fix stupid.

Why I try, I’ll never really understand, but ‘fixing stupid’ has been a lifelong obsession. So, stopping will be difficult. I just don’t suffer fools gladly.

The problem is that many ‘fools’ are there by ‘accident’. So, there’s that part of me that sees this as a rescue mission. The only question is whether this ‘fool’ or that ‘fool’ is worth the effort.

It’s hard to say.

Lots to be Disturbed About

It has been a fairly eventful week. So much so, that I did more reading on it and left less time for writing about it.

Having said that, you WILL see lots of comment on these topics in the research. In a couple cases, articles all by themselves.

What a horrifying world to live in.

Gideon in the Last Days

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.

That Hairy Buffalo

People need to wake up, and I don’t know what it will take for them to do that. But, I believe that he first step is to stop doing the thing that is putting you to sleep.

We talk about drinking the Kool-Aid. That was a reference to the Jonestown Massacre – where followers of Jim Jones drank cyanide-laced Kool-Aid. But, there’s more than just poisoned Kool-Aid.

Lots of Christians are sitting around the punch bowl, not realizing the potency of what they are drinking. And, what’s in that bowl is designed to keep you from realizing just how intoxicating it is.

Just like a Hairy Buffalo.

Ouch, That Hurt

March 15th passed with barely a mention from the mainstream media. The sun still shined. People still got up and went to work. Kids went to school and teachers taught them – or, at least pretended to.

Unfortunately, hitting the Debt Ceiling and raising interest rates on debt is a very big deal. Worse, there are bigger problems looming on the horizon.

We are in trouble, folks.

I really hope that y’all will be ready for it.

Outta Time

I have zip time to write, ‘cuz I’m already late for the class that Mrs. Little and I teach on Friday nights. And yes, you aren’t even out of bed, when night falls on Taipei.

But, the idea of this title is all too appropriate for the time that we live in now.

Outta Time.

That’s us.

My hope is that YOU won’t be outta time when the clock on our civilization runs out.

Not Being Careful About the Truth

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.
