The World Has Flipped Its Axis
I am just about at the end of my rope in listening to the world and its mob rule attitude. Ronald Reagan once said in a speech…
The Democrats say that the United States has had its days in the sun, that our nation has passed its zenith.
While I agree with most things Ronald Reagan said, I think this statement may be true. It may not have been true at the time he said it but it certainly is now. When I was young, I use to read the Bible and listen to the prophecies about what it would be like in the last days. I use to think that it was so bad that it would never reach that point in my lifetime. I remember a time when being a Christian was seen as honorable. Parents would approve of their child dating someone based on that fact alone. A Christian was seen as a resume enhancement, a positive character trait, a sign of an trustworthy person. The world seemed to be a completely different planet than we have today.
The Bible speaks of the times before Jesus’ return and says in Romans 1:21 – 32…
21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things.
24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:
25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.
28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
This was just a sample of the many scriptures that spoke of life in the last days. There are many more out there that I could quote but this is just an example. When I was younger and was living in the world that I described above, the things described in this scripture were pretty much agreed upon that they were bad. Now here we are just a few decades later, and the world has completely reversed itself on virtually every issue that is important in the Bible. Not only has people’s attitude changed on the issues, being a Christian is actually described as being hate filled.
Things that were historically known as right have become wrong. Things that were historically seen as wrong, have now become right. People will tell you there is no such thing as an absolute right or an absolute wrong. In the next breath they will tell you that you are absolutely wrong if you disagree with them. Our country historically was seen as one that tried to do right by all people and even though it failed many times. Now we live in a country that is so divided on issues that we now have mobs ready to run the streets. We have a media that makes a living off of fanning the flames to agitate people to rise up in violence.
I remember a time when such actions were looked down upon and people would be shunned for doing this. Now we have celebrities like Spike Lee and Roseanne Barr giving out the personal addresses of the parents of someone they think did something wrong even though no charges have been files. They do this after the media has been fanning the flames for over a month for the sole purpose of getting black people enraged.
These irresponsible celebrities are making an assumption that the parents are hiding their adult son that has yet to be charged with a crime. This poor family is in danger for their lives to go to their own home. Roseanne Barr is not only not apologizing but having an all out war against anyone that would criticize her doing it. We have the bill of rights that are supposed to protect citizens from being falsely charged with crimes. There are activists such as The Black Panthers that are offering money for the capture of this person that has still not been charged with a crime. There is Louis Farrakhan that is giving speeches that they are not subject to “the white man’s laws” or the “American laws”. The media that is willfully and purposely fanning the flames of hate are silent when those that truly are hate filled and truly are racist are advocating violence. The media refuses to shine the light on this while continuing to fan the flames.
As each day goes by, I am just amazed at the accuracy of the Bible prophecy. I am amazed at how one generation has brought this country from the country of good will and helping people to the country of hate. I know there has always been hate and always has been racism but never before have we had such an activist media actively getting involved in the revolution of our great country. The American journalist has become the common every day Communist agitator bent on overthrowing our nation. The agitation that is going on is not simply for ratings as people think. Those in the media genuinely believe that Communism is the way to go and that the Soviet Union lost out on a great opportunity by having dictators. Unfortunately they do not understand that Communism cannot be implemented without a dictator emerging. The so called “dictatorship of the Proletariat” spoken of by Karl Marx is simply impossible and will always result in a totalitarian dictator of a ruler.
How did we get here? Some will say that we in the church are to blame by not spending time in God’s word and learning his words. Some will say that we have not loved the world enough so they have turned on us. Some will say the world is actually better now because the world is being rid of the Christians that restrict rights. That last statement could not be further from the truth. The crime, hatred, discontent seems to be accelerating despite having unprecedented freedoms to be as depraved as a person may want to be. When there are families where dads are not taking responsibility for their families, that is not getting better. When the American people are so divided that people are ready to go on a mob tirade, that is not better. No matter how you want to spin it, the world is not better. As the scripture says above in Romans 1:22…
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools
We are living in a time where more people have college educations that ever before yet, they cannot see common sense. People brag about the advancements in technology and education and yet, we have a media and activists that are going unchallenged in their successful attempts at convincing blacks that people are racist against them. They do it so much that people that ordinarily would not be racist find themselves being fed up with being called racist that the do become angry. It is just beyond me how we have people in the name of ridding the world of racism are the very ones that keep stirring the pot. They are the ones that continuously poke and prod at blacks just to get them angry. I am not saying that racism does not exist, but rather that racism is a lot smaller problem than the media would have you believe. Most white people just want to live in peace with their black neighbors but the media and black leaders will not allow that to happen. They have agendas to constantly agitate people to anger all the time. Karl Marx was very big on agitation to get people riled in an attempt to organize the masses into revolution to overthrow not only the government but society as a whole.
The media today is taking Mr. Marx advice and keeping people angry for a purpose. It is not simply for ratings. This agitation is calculated for the purpose of angering the people into revolution. If you are looking around you, it is clear to see that it is working in a big way. Karl Marx used class warfare to agitate and if you read documents from the Communist group, The Fifth International, you can see that it is calculated to use black anger to force an uprising. The media will never tell you what they are doing because if they came right out and admitted they were Communist, they would lose lot of influence. I have seen some crazy things in my lifetime but the one thing that still amazes me today is how the media and society as a whole has forgotten that people are innocent until proven guilty. In today’s world, a simple accusation can ruin a person’s career and life. There does not have to be any substance to the claim for it to work. The media will get on a story and badger a falsely accused person until the whole nation is convinced of their guilt.
One day I was walking home from high school in Del City, OK in 1983 when I saw a KWTV van sitting in front of one of my neighbor’s house. As soon as we got close enough, the reporter stuck a camera in our faces and asked us if we knew the guy that lived there. When we told her yes, then she started asking us if we had seen any kids come from that house. She told us that the guy that lived there had been accused of sexually molesting kids. As a teenager, that event never left me. I did know the guy that lived there and do not believe that he committed those crimes. The point is that from that day forward, I decided that my kids would never be allowed to have friends over at our house if my wife was not there. American and the world for that matter has reached a point where a simple unfounded accusation will be believed. If a person is later found to be innocent, the media will be very low profile on their reporting of it if the mention it at all.
It is quite an amazing time to be in that is for sure. Enjoy it while you have it because I truly believe that we will have riots in the streets very soon if not sooner.
