9And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day: 10And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day. 11Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, NOT A FAMINE OF BREAD, NOR A THIRST FOR WATER, BUT OF HEARING THE WORDS OF THE LORD: 12And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. 13In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst. (Amos 8:)
Our rights as humans have always been allowed us because of our belief in the sanctity of human life, which comes from our belief in God and the Bible. And it has been our government that has protected those rights. Human life is of no value any more, and is becoming less so. All we have to do is watch the news and see the millions of babies slaughtered, putting to shame the Holocaust by its magnitude, to see that this is so. Our history books have been changed gradually over the years thereby changing fiction into fact, and fact into fiction, creating an entirely new "truth" for the younger generations. And our Constitution and Bill of Rights, those unchangeable sources by which this nation stands, now resembles a piece of Swiss cheese.
As for our Words of the Lord, the churches have been nibbling away at the meaning of the Words of God for hundreds of years until we now read the same words with the opposite meaning than what was intended.
Those who are duty-bound to uphold our human and Spiritual health are, and have been, serving to destroy what they are sworn to protect.
And we, you and I, just go along with it, hoping for the best.
We know that things will turn for the worst in the Last Days. And we know that we now stand at the threshold of those Last Days. However, we also feel confident that when the Tribulation befalls this world, there will be some kind of warning to the effect. We think there will be signs indicating that such a change is taking place. If we compare today to 50 years ago we can see that the changes are here, and they are obvious. But like the frog in the water....
Throughout history we have seen: first a wearing away of society, then the fall of that society. The wearing away process, as with all things of nature, is slow and gradual. But the destruction at the end of the wearing away has been rapid "Like a thief in the night."
We have seen through history that one of the first things to be taken away from the people, to be destroyed, is the intellectuals, the thinkers, and any kind of literature that promotes an understanding beyond what the establishment promotes. Although this has not taken place in a full-blown manner as yet (in this country), signs are cropping up everywhere. In this day of "Liberty," where we, at least in this country, are able to vote for some things of no consequence (at least voting is done by legislators) we feel confident that we will have some say-so over such things as the removal of the Bible and the complete corruption of the church. However, if we look at Canada, a nation on par with the United States as far as its government is concerned, we see that for some time preaching on sin is a prison offense. And we see where some states, such as California, is on the brink of voting in that very same law. What will happen, do you suppose, when a dictator takes over, either by war, or by a change of power, or by some other means? Change will be rapid, and it will be deadly.
Today you are able to read many things on the web and in books. Most of what we see is benign and of no consequence, everyone merely repeats what someone else has said, and what they say only supports the views taken by society, the government, or the churches. But there are some sources of mass communication that do not adhere to the established and approved view. This website is one of those that does not say what the government and the churches approve of. And though I try to make my statements concerning government rather bland and non-accusing, especially concerning individuals, there are some things I say that will bring up red flags when the day comes when anything not praising the powers that be will be squelched.
The government, however, is only a segment of the powers that be. There is also the church, or the religious factor to be considered. All through history we see some form of religion standing par with the government. That religion, forced upon all, might be the Christian church, a pagan religion, or it might be the worship of the king, whoever that might be. Today the church, the various forms of worship, is segmented and fractured to the point of breaking. There is very little difference between the best of the churches and the world. I see the day coming, and I believe very soon, when the world will have taken over the churches and will force the churches (and everyone else) to conform to the world's way of thinking - or else. When that day comes, in a moment, all forms of information that opposes the world's way of thinking will disappear. And since the web is so easily controlled and governed, what you read this moment could in a flash be taken off the air before you finish reading this sentence. Those familiar with "web spiders,' such as Google, know that these spiders can navigate the WWW in the briefest of time capturing and storing every word uploaded. How easy it would be to send out such spiders searching for certain key words, just as you do when you use your browser (although you only see what has been stored by the huge computers that retain what the spiders have stored) and investigate, or eliminate those sites that raise a red flag. As for encrypting, this is only as effective as a government will allow it to be. Remember, encrypting is read by someone somewhere. What encryption reader that person has, anyone can have. Consider the suitcase atom bombs stored away by no telling who, and the number of times the most secure of government files have been broken into and caused to malfunction by hackers.
I have found in my research of the various web sites many others who express opinions that go contrary to the mainstream. I have yet to find any that says quite what I say, or say it in the same way I say it. But nonetheless I see much value in what they are saying. And I believe it is important that such information remain available for all who seek the truth.
By truth, I do not mean that I nor any one person has, or is disseminating the Truth. But we are all providing information that truth-seekers can use to decide for themselves what is true. I and others who write are merely information gatherers. Anyone who says they have the truth is not telling the truth. Only God holds truth, and He gives us a little at a time (consider the prophets and the Epistles. No one book is complete in itself). And because we, who God gives truth to are human, we take that truth and flood it with fantasy and personal opinions. It is the job of the truth seeker to wade through what I and others say to find what God has truly said. The test of truth lies upon you, not any writer.
My hope is that this information is valued by you, the reader. And I hope you, the reader, realize that it's for you that this material is written and posted, just as I suspect is the case with others who post their writings.
I would be glad to hear what you have to say, and also your opinions, pro and con.
