Life moves at a much faster pace now, we are all so busy, it takes two incomes just to “make it” today, the world is evolving quicker. These and many more are truths, only if you allow them to be. An old saying, if you please, “If you are unable to “make it” on your forty hour a week job, don’t go get a second job, get a better paying one or adjust your standard of living.”
Not so today, many want everything, and they want it now, so debt, average household debt, is beyond belief, these and all those previous mentioned items that fit within the boundaries of what “life” is to be and mean, have all been preplanned, and because man is easily deceived, have now become action towards an inevitable end. Life did not begin to move faster, many have only been deceived into believing so, most generally by the media, one frame every few seconds on a commercial, to thirty or more frames per second, from the daily relaxing, notwithstanding the information contained therein, reading of a newspaper, to all the news, everywhere at our fingertips. Raise the price of everything while continuing to consistently keep wages below that level, and people will go into debt, not adjust their standard of living.
Bondage, bondage of the mind, of the thoughts, these areas of our lives, or should I say the majority of people’s lives, did not occur haphazardly, this has been planned, slowly, methodically, intentionally. Satan does not know the hour of our Lord’s return for His church (Matt. 24:36) any more than we do, but he is much more adept at seeing and interpreting the signs, for he is a spiritual being.
“That ye might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.” (Col. 1:9) There are few on the planet that the Lord has blessed to be so, and I do not claim to be one of them, but He has blessed me with eyes to see into certain areas. Slow and steady, pull the nose rings gently, but firmly, and they will not even realize they are being led to the slaughter, but soon many, by the will of God, will also have their eyes opened. It is in the spiritual realm that the steps of man are directed, (Prov. 16:9) when the Lord determines a path for mankind, that path cannot be avoided, and it is by His design and will that the days we are in are here. This is not going to “get better,” this is going to end with the deaths of nearly every living thing on the planet, (Mark 13:20) every leader of every nation, every rich man, every one who believes themselves by the deceit and lie of pride to be safe is going to soon find that they were mistaken.
Life is not moving faster, the herd has simply been shuffled along at a quicker pace, the faster you go, the more difficult it is to discern what is right and what is wrong, the more easily the important can be glossed over or completely missed. Two verses my friends, “In your patience possess ye your souls.” (Luke 21:19) “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalm 46:10)
God has never once been rushed, never has He been surprised, and He has blessed us with the ability to lead that type of life, one of being patient and completely aware at all times that He is in control. “Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.” (Prov. 3:25) The world, the men and women of this world, are in a hurry, they are afraid, many are deep in debt, they have no idea what the future holds for them, and they are willing to be led as long as it benefits them, or does not interfere with the desired goals they have for their lives. Those in charge, so to speak, are no different, they are all the same, some walk, some have private jets, but there is no difference. We need to warn them that all of that is about to change, and in a way that not even the wisest one of them in the ways of the world can see.
