Are you paying attention?
Radical Islam is On The Move! It is recruiting in your State, if not in your city. Young people are seemingly enamored of this Movement, not because it’s a great career path, but because it represents A Cause! Young people are idealistic and not too sophisticated.
In Washington they are debating our Security, specifically the NSA’s ability to collect data on every living soul. Clearly that’s an exaggeration…for now. The Issue is Security. Would you be willing to trade some of your freedoms for more security? Of course you would! You already have and love it. Can you say Google?
In major American cities, run by Democrats, the crime rate is literally off the chart! Baltimore has doubled the number of murders in their city, with 43 homicides just last month (May, 2015). Chicago has seen over 900 shootings so far this year….and it’s not even the half-way point. Atlanta’s crime rate is up 10%, Milwaukee’s homicide rate is up 32%, violent crime is up 10% in Dallas and New York City is recording murders at a +20% rate, over last year.
What’s going on? Heather Mac Donald, of the Wall Street Journal, says it’s a ‘war on cops.’ It’s not just an increase in ‘bad apples,’ it’s that the police are always the Bad Guys and they now know it. The police are scaling back, doing what the Press and the Radicals have required of them: They are not being aggressive. They are not stopping folks and frisking them. They don’t stop and ask where people are going. They don’t make traffic stops. Isn’t this what YOU want?
Thomas Sowell says “The Obama administration’s Department of Justice has been leading the charge, when it come to presuming the police to be guilty — not only until proven innocent, but even after grand juries have gone over all the facts and acquitted the police.”
What do these “Activists” want? What is their End Game? It doesn’t really matter, since every so-called Special Interest Group is complaining about something different and demanding the same thing: Less Order — More License.
This week, on the radio, it was announced that as a result of the Baltimore riots, there is enough drugs on the street in Baltimore to keep the entire City ‘high’ for a year! The police are not policing. Businesses are not returning. None of the criminals have been arrested, even though they are known to the police, and the media is now blaming the Republican Governor.
So, I ask you again: Would you be willing to trade your freedom for security? Before you answer read this: But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
This is a quote from Paul’s first Epistle to the Thessalonians, Chapter 5:1-6. It’s a prophecy. The time is coming when people all over the world will willingly trade Freedom for Security.
As a young man I wondered how this would come about. It was a foreign concept to a child of the 1940’s and 1950’s. It is foreign no more! Young people are generally ignorant of anything that’s really going on in their country, let alone the world. If it doesn’t happen on Facebook or the Jimmy Kimmel Show, it’s not worth knowing.
The U.S. Constitution? Founding Principles? How our government works? The names of the players? None of this matters to these people as long as they can Tweet, Text and play games on their smart phones. 70% of applications installed on smart phones are games, with “Angry Bird” leading the pack in sheer number — probably because it’s so old. “About Tech” says Grand Theft Auto is currently the most popular Free download. These are ‘Educational’ Games, right?
The prophecy revealed by Paul points to a time when everything we know will end! He says it will come quickly; unexpectedly. One day everything seems normal, the next day the world is up-side-down.
The fullness of prophecy points to the Middle East (surprised?). One day the world will see an International Leader moving on the Middle East to settle the conflict. Israel will rejoice to see her ‘savior.’ The picture in The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, is that of a man on a white horse: a false Messiah.
The next day the world will erupt in almost total chaos! I use word “day” to indicate a very short span of time, since the whole of the chaos will last only 3.5 years. In that time period more than 20% of the world’s population will die an untimely death! Think of the disease. This will happen as a result of war, pestilence, disease, famine, lack of potable water and starvation, due to the economic upheaval.
Then The Real Tribulation Starts!!
While this ‘pot’ is stewing, we’re going merrily on our way, glad the government is being vigilant, never noticing the steady erosion of our rights and our privacies.
Government and Business Leaders understand the value (necessity) of rights and privacies. Can you say ‘Private Server?’
An Old Timer Once Said: “Eternal Vigilance Is The Price of Freedom”
Do You Know Who That was? Yes? Then you are probably over 60 years of age!
