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.
The Elections are almost here, and the banksters have been trying to hold back the deluge of bad news, to get their candidate into the White House. And, they only have two months left to do it. But, that’s not all the news.
We have a big ecumenical meeting set to take place in Jerusalem. Ecumenicism is at the core of the Antichrist movement, so this doesn’t come as a surprise.
A big alien story has arrived. Since the Jesuits are really into alien stories, I’m betting that there’s some Jesuit involvement in this.
Over the past two weeks the Republicans and Democrats presented their most persuasive arguments for why Americans should choose THEM to lead the United States. I’m not a fan of either party, and the candidates that I supported most did not get nominated.
More important, Turkey made its turn away from the US and NATO, and toward the Middle East. If you are wondering how that will play out, just read Ezekiel 38 and 39. And then, read Isaiah 19, where it talks about Assyria. For Assyria to rise, Turkey must fall.
These are momentous times, and the long, hot summer that I’ve been talking about isn’t over yet.
Next week will mark a turning point. Either the Republic continues as it is, with all of its faults and corruptions, or it turns deeper into Empire. Rome stood at that same turning point more than two thousand years ago, and America is remarkably similar to Rome.
In fact, that similarity was by design.
Anyway, next week will be of enormous importance. Of course there will be other weeks of such importance, but there are few times in which such importance mimics history so closely and allows us to quote Shakespeare:
Yesterday, I was so caught up in the idea of rhythms and cycles that I didn’t leave myself enough time for writing. So, if you were wondering why there was no Shock Letter, that was one part of the reason. However, I also have a Bible class that I teach on Fridays, so that’s the other part.
Lord willing, I will be able to write about what I think about the rhythms and cycles that we see in history, and talk about what those rhythms and cycles tell us about the future. Hopefully, bad news will take the week off, so that we can talk about all that.
This is one of those days where the phrase, damned if you do and damned if you don’t applies. Those of you who still believe that it’s important to vote will go to the ballot box and vote for somebody that you hope isn’t an evil person-of-uncertain-parentage.
Unfortunately, most of the people on the ballot are complete people of uncertain parentage, so you are stuck with having to choose between the lesser of two weevils.
Since I am on the other side of the planet, I’ve avoided all that by convincing myself that my ballot will never be counted (true) and that my vote doesn’t matter (unknown).
