Three eleven. That’s what we – in East Asia – call the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami of March 11th, 2011. The rest of you think of it as the time when the Fukushima nuclear reactors melted down and blew up.
However, it’s more than a disaster. It’s also an allegory of the future – an allegory that we need to pay attention to. Those who do not internalize this warning about the future, will be lucky to survive when that future arrives.
Why do I say this?
Most who died in the 3/11 Tsunami, did so because they ignored the warning – or didn’t hear it.
I want to believe that America can be rescued. I want America to be that shining city on a hill that beckons the nations of the world to truth, righteousness and freedom. I want her to be one nation under God. I want her to be the country that demonstrates the love of Christ to the world.
Unfortunately, America is NOT that country, and cannot be that country unless the Body of Christ in America turns from their wickedness, asks forgiveness from God and sincerely follows the Lord, in humility and truth.
Until that happens, there can be no hope of rescue for our beloved country. And, I do not see evidence that any of this is happening. If I did, I would be far more optimistic.
By now, most of you have probably figured out that where you live is not safe. And, you face the challenge of what to do about that. As I have said repeatedly…
…if you can’t trust your neighbors, it’s time to get new ones.
And, getting new neighbors means moving to a place where you CAN trust your neighbors, or where situation isn’t so dire – or both.
I recommend the ‘both’ part, but that means leaving the United States – a very daunting prospect for anyone with an ounce of sanity. But, I am an example of someone who has done that, and – by the grace of God – lived to tell the tale.
So, let me take this time to tell my own story of relocation.
The problem is that we are in a much, much weaker position vis-a-vis other countries. Before WWII, we were exporting oil and resources to the world. Now, we are importing – or having to depend on expensive domestic production. And, we are dependent upon foreigners for our power and prosperity.
All of that has put us in an exceptionally vulnerable position – a position that Russia will know how to exploit.
