I received some interesting results from my last few blogs. I could go on for weeks posting interesting articles that are sent to me on a daily basis to prove a point regarding the illusive qualities of truth. At a minimum, these articles are very entertaining reading! There is so much information out there in the world-wide-web; finding the truth can be a very cumbersome chore. At the end of the day we do not know who to believe. As a conservative, I am a Blaze subscriber, but even Glenn Beck and I disagree on some fundamental issues such as his (and his loyal employees) take on Social Security and Medicare. Just because we subscribe to a hundred internet sites, does not indicate what we do and do not believe. Rather it could be an indicator of how sincerely we are searching for an ounce of truth . . . one ounce at a time.
I had intended to do similar posts containing partial truths for a few more days, but we need to move on to the point of these posts. Today’s post was to have been the best of The White Hat’s Reports . . . but I received this article from a FB friend this morning, and it kept me reading to the end – whether the truth or fiction it was entertaining: http://divinecosmos.com/start-here/davids-blog/1051-g7banks .
The Boston Marathon Bombing events are no different than what we are bombarded with on the internet. On that awful day:
– BEFORE THE BOMBING – We saw pictures of people in fatigues with large packs on their backs running with the rest of the runners. I don’t know exactly why these people were running in military garb – and neither do you.
– BEFORE THE BOMBING – We see a “black ops for hire” group that goes by the name of “Kraft.” They are all dressed the same. They were either having their annual company get-to-gather at the Marathon, or they were hired to stand around and confuse the argument today . . . or they were hired to do “black ops stuff” of which I don’t know what all they actually do – and neither do you.
– BEFORE THE BOMBING – We see dogs (we are told bomb sniffing dogs) and dog handlers near the finish line. I cannot imagine they were anything but what we were told, but I have no way of knowing – and neither do you.
– The “person of interest,” becomes exonerated after being tagged as involved with terrorism at the Boston Marathon bombing. This guy has ties with high ups in Saudi – or so we are told. I have no direct way of knowing the truth about this guy – and neither do you.
– BEFORE THE BOMBING – We see two brothers on film and still photos – who may or may not be Al-Qaida; who may or may not be CIA; who may or may not be FBI; who may or may not be lone wolf operators; and who may or may not be Saudi Terrorists. I have no sure way of knowing – and neither do you.
– AFTER THE BOMBING – We see one film that is very dark, with police lights, and we hear a lot of gun fire. We are told that the older brother died of wounds and being run over by his younger brother. We see another film that is lit by headlights, and police lights, and we see the naked uninjured older brother being put into the back of a patrol car (which means they tortured him and shot him many times later in the night).” HOW ARE WE TO KNOW THE TRUTH? Are the pictures faked? And he is alive to do whatever it is he does another day? I have no way of knowing any of this – and neither do you.
– Our presidents have had some unusual relations with Saudi Arabia. Knowing this, how are we supposed to believe anything our government tells us about – well, you know – Saudi’s are not checked before getting on commercial airplanes anymore – BUT YOU ARE, AND YOUR FRAIL GRANDMOTHER IS, A WELL AS YOUR SLEEPING TWO YEAR OLD IN YOUR ARMS?
Whether we are talking about Bush, Obama, Al-Qaida, CIA, FBI, or black ops – – – it could be said that they all believe they are doing the right things. They have tunnel-vision that makes them believe they are right and others are wrong. These people all have one thing in common . . . they believe the ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS . . . which translated means – I can do anything including murder to manipulate you to do what I want you to do if the end result is a good result. OMG!!! These people proved in one day that they could verbally control a large American city – the empty Boston streets was the most UN-AMERICAN thing I think I may have ever seen. Even after 9-11 we were still a mobile nation, including New York.
Unless you are very high up in our government, you and I do not have any way to know the truth from lies regarding events that affect all of us. Much of what America holds to be true today even defies common sense. How did we get here? Has there been a time when Americans had more control over what we did and did not believe? Yes. Certainly when local populations were much smaller, we could be reasonably sure of the local “news.” America grew and prospered, and proved to be made up of mostly good people for long periods in our history.
What was different was our Christian morality that most Americans lived by. What truths do I know that I can build a foundation on today?
– I know that I am a created being, living in a created existence – created by God.
– I know that my Creator / God came to Earth as a man, Jesus Christ, and He came to give us the good news of who He is, of who we are, and His plans for me long term.
– I am instructed to not be deceived (and most of the internet is designed to deceive you). Even a snake oil salesman has to work harder than an internet article to make you believe his elixirs will work miracles.
– I know that even if I am not held accountable today for evil deeds, I will be held accountable in the future by my Creator / God / Jesus Christ.
– I know that when our founding fathers asked for God’s divine providence and protection, America grew and prospered. Americans LIVED THE BILL OF RIGHTS and the TEN COMMANDMENTS. Even those who committed crimes recognized when they went against these basic human laws.
– I know that many people on Earth believe they are having connections with angels / supernatural entities. You better be close to the Lord so you will know the difference between one of God’s good angels such as Mary and Joseph saw and talked to, and Satan’s fallen band of angels. Until Jesus brings me back here with him for the Millennium spoken of in the Bible, Satan is here on Earth with his minions / band of fallen angels. Before the flood of Noah’s time, Satan’s band of angels came to Earth to mingle among us and breed. Those fallen will be here again in the times of trouble described in Revelation. You better be right with God, and pray for help to not be deceived.
– I know that I am 60 years old, and when I was a child America was infinitely safer than it is now because 95%+ of all Americans, whether Christian or not, lived by Christian morality and values. I recommend to those of you who are not in touch with Christ through His Holy Spirit to get in touch now. America’s Christians from a not too distant past were believers with no reservations. In other words, we are to accept God’s laws, and not tell God that we are going to ignore this part of the Bible, or that part of the Bible. The Bible has all the words that God wanted in the Bible. If it isn’t there, God didn’t want it there. You can take all the “missing chapters” that men tell you should have been in the Bible and put, them in the wood chipper. We are warned to not take anything away from the scriptures, and not add anything to the scriptures. We are warned to be careful if we are in a position to influence innocent minds, for we will be judged more harshly if we lead innocents astray. Yes, I grew up in a much safer America because Americans lived the Christian morality and values that make life much easier for everyone.
Can you imagine America cities where abortions are not needed, where all babies are wanted, where businesses regulate their own moral behavior, where education is created within local communities . . . where the community made of moral citizens who take responsibility for themselves, their families, and their communities? I can imagine it. I remember the responsible adults I grew up around, and their work ethic, and their generosity. I miss the America who mirrored President Kennedy’s words and truly ‘did not ask what their country could do for them, but asked what they could do for their country.’
I implore all people to remember that the most convincing lies are the ones that are peppered with some truth. When we have a moral foundation in our society, it is easier to decipher life’s issues together. If we are truly approaching the end times, as many of us can only guess at based on the world around us, then we are in a world evolving into the most confusing time in history. The war between good and evil is happening in the spiritual realm, and in the Earthly realm. When our enemies tell us that they are in a religious war with all who are not of their faith, we had better take them at their word. It is time for Americans to make it known which side of the Holy War they are on. If you don’t know which side you are on, it is almost too late for you to figure that out. I quote this often, because it lays it on the line so clearly, no one can read it and not understand . . . Ephesians 6:12 – 13 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” YES; AND AMEN.
NOTE: My goodness, sometimes it is so hard for me to write. I am committed to posting on my blog every day, and it is only fair to tell you that sometimes I am able to write as well as I was able to years ago – but, sometimes, no matter how many times I read over it to edit – it just seems like a big fuzzy ball that has no real form. I apologize if I do not get the construction done well; I still hope to get the message across with help from above. Tonight’s vision is only double – thankful it is not a triple vision night. LOL God Bless you every one. If I am still fuzzy tomorrow, I will just have to post a song we haven’t heard in a long time, with why it is a good song. Later . . .
