Filled with Foreboding

It should be no mystery to you that we are in a lot of trouble. Earth-shaking, civilization destroying, trouble. And, the news this week – and over the past few weeks – has emphasized this like we have rarely seen. Conventional oil production has been declining since 2005. Emerging market countries are experiencing financial collapse. We are entering a Grand Solar Minimum that might be worse than the one that launched the Dark Ages. The war against free speech has begun in earnest. Societies in the developed world teeter on the brink of open strife.

We are staring into the Abyss, and I just don’t like the view.

TRUTH – Our Biggest Challenge

We are beset with lies. They surround us. They attempt to invade everything that we do. They try to divert our attention. They trip us up when we try to make intelligent decisions. And, the lies are so much more fun than the TRUTH.

That’s why the truth is such a challenge. It’s painful. It’s ugly. It holds a mirror up and shows us that we aren’t as strong or as beautiful as we would like to be.

So, I understand why TRUTH is such a challenge. But, if you want to live long and prosper… If eternity is your destination… you’d better accept the challenge of accepting the TRUTH.

The System is Dying II – When Growth Stops

In both the natural and geopolitical world, there seems to be one law that that is universal – at least on this planet. And that law is:

Systems grow until they die.

Look at ANY biological system at the macro level. That system grows and grows and grows, until it runs out of food, and then rapidly dies – to be replaced by a different biological system that does the same thing. And, scientists have wondered at this seemingly mindless, unchanging rule of nature.

Of course, it has its roots in the Fall of Man and the Garden of Eden, but you can’t expect scientists to read the Bible.

The System is Dying

The current, high tech civilization started dying a little over ten years ago. What began in the 1800s, races towards an inglorious end and the death of billions of people. And, you know nothing about this, because our dear leaders do not want you to know.

In fact, these same ‘dear leaders’ undoubtedly tell themselves that our fantastic empire will continue, that nothing can shake this great ship as it travels into the night. But, not all is as it seems, and that jolt you felt in 2008 was the same kind of iceberg that sank the unsinkable Titanic.

As our system dies, will you be ready for this?

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.

It Takes an Epiphany

I’ve seen a few things, just recently, that impress upon me that the hour is late. The signposts for the Last Days are flying by as our civilization races down this Highway to Hell.

And yes, that’s an awful song for an awful civilization.

The problem is that far too few have woken up. And, of those who are awake, too few have put all the pieces together.

I am puzzled by this ‘putting pieces together’ business. When I look back on my own eureka moments, I realize that ‘putting all the pieces together’…

… well …

…It takes an epiphany.

Why Apocalypse Now

How we got to where we are is utterly fascinating. What an intricate series of events and historical movements that led us to this horrific moment in time.

For thousands of years, we’ve been puzzling over how the prophecies of the Last Days would be fulfilled. Well, we no longer need to puzzle over it. We now have most of the pieces and a better understanding of the picture.

The only question is whether we can fit those pieces together properly. It’s a big challenge, and I’ve been trying to do this for years. The good thing is that I’m better at this than before.

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.

The Rooster Cometh

It’s Chinese New Year!

And, it’s the year of the rooster, and with it come many ominous portents. No, not the mystical shmystical kind. The more mundane, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it kind. And yes, catastrophe will be the name of the game in this Chinese Year of the Rooster.

What can we expect?

Economic and financial devastation – or, at least more evidence that it is around the corner.

Libya falls farther into Russia’s grasp.

Gog and Magog will look more and more real with each passing week.

India will collapse and fall into the abyss of their own devising.

And, silver and gold will probably go up. Maybe.

Arrogance

Of all the enemies that we face in this world, our biggest lies reflected in the mirror. No one has done more to damage our relationship with God. No one had done more to harm the people that love us. No one is more destructive to our churches, our communities and our nation.

We really are our own worst enemy.

The thought that God loves us in spite of all that is more than I can truly understand. The good thing is that I don’t need to understand. I just need to accept it and seek to demonstrate that unfathomable love to a lost world.
