Let us suppose by our own acts of vile and vice, sin, is built and cultivated to the point where death is stockpiled in areas of the world to the point where deceases that normally would have little or no effect on the larger population, mainly because the majority of the general public would very infrequently come in contact with a large enough exposure to allow the said decease to cross the barrier of this harsh environment and find its place in men. Then let us also suppose that greed is tossed in making the very precautions that would hold such deceases in check, being discarded or limited because it is just not economically feasible or for that matter the people or children involved in the care of this area are not worth the cost. Decease flourishes where it shouldn’t, not by God’s intent, but by man’s free will and greedy choices.
God knows what the outcome will be, He has seen the path and destination our own steps have led. He knows what devastation that will come out of these steps, the pestilence. He has His prophets even write about it, so those who would see, recognize the hand of God in everything around us through this most horrific sign. He even tells us when; it is at a time when mens hearts will become cold, they will kill their young, darkness will prevail on the world.
But the devil is also at work, he is busy spinning his own tale, taking that which he can not create, twisting it into his own dark agent of death and torment, then use his media puppet, his Hollywood coven of priests and priestesses, or those foolish egotistic gongs we call the scientific community to talk about, write about it, spin their own natural sort of explanation that usually represents some kind of natural spontaneous cause that has happened before millions of years ago, “oh look, we survived then!”, or somehow saying it is man made, and what we make we can fix!
They make movie or a documentary, millions, no billions die, but if the star some how survives, and gets the girl, it’s going to be a happy ending! They write disaster books, describe it to the hilt, even show us picture, after picture, after picture on some far off land we hardly know exists let alone feel the sting of. They show us faces upon fly decimated hunger ridden bodies, we forget the over fed man that is to busy snapping photo’s to help or give food to this starving child. Yes they give us images, faces the general public can’t identify with, never a small blonde hair blue eyed baby dying of some horrific decease. They warn us with false alarm over and over, predictions and warnings, that don’t pan out to the point where the public stops caring. Until we just stop listening. Until we we have heard it so much it is old news, and the shock is gone, the effect is nothing, no tears, no sorrow, and if it doesn’t happen directly to us or our children, oh well; seen it before, it isn’t even as bad as was depicted in the latest mass destruction movie we just watched weeks earlier.
The first time we see something truly shocking, it has a almost physical effect on us. Tears, anger, people get physically ill, women weeping, grown men sobbing, these images bring us to tears, people ask why, look to God, most of the time they call out to God. Nobody is immune! But witness tragedy over and over in film, and the degree of pain it inflicts becomes less and less as we form a callous, our hearts become hardened. Yesterdays Columbine, today doesn’t even make the back page of the paper!
So what is happening, where is the deceit? Let us suppose that the deceiver would have us become desensitized so that when something truly tragic occurs, we hardly even blink because we have seen it so many times. And then to make things worse let the one spreading the deceit scientifically explain the event away as to no make it a God thing but just something natural that has been predicted for a long time.
As is in the case of pestilence God said “in the end there will be pestilence, and a third of the worlds population will perish”; how many movies have shown millions of people dying, how many news reports of people dead in the streets in far away lands famine, there are video games, books, songs, the images are so common even our smallest children see them in their cartoons. Bird flu is so commonly spoken of and so misreported that even if it occurred, people would shake it off as a natural occurrence. Ebola, Aids, MRSA, none of these deceases have any shockability any longer because the media has burned them out in our senses with over playing on the likes of Ally McBeal to the point where we don’t even care.
“There will be shaking of the Earth as to the like the world has never witnessed”, been there, seen that, entertainment shakings of the earth, end of days movies, predictions of massive volcano’s, they have shown so many that the interest in Honduras is at such a low, many people have forgotten that even even happened. Not to mention the scientific community predicting everything from massive eruptions in Yellowstone, to the Earths axis shifting and causing massive earthquakes, depict it on TV so the shock is off when and if it occurs, and it has already been explained away as natural. Things falling from the skies hitting the oceans and causing a third if the ships to be destroyed; been there saw that! Sun turning dark, yep they made a film or two or twenty. Moon turning red like blood, water turning to blood, wars, complete destruction of monetary system, fall of billions by nuclear war, rise of an Antichrist to rule the world as a one world government…. Been there seen that!
We have been desensitized! We have had the glory taken out of the creation to the point where everything is natural, even us.
If we are natural then we are insignificant, and if we are insignificant then we don’t matter, and if we don’t matter then it doesn’t matter what we do because the world will go on, and if it doesn’t matter what we do, then we have no need for a forgiveness, and if we don’t need forgiveness, then why have a savior, how can we lift our heads and look at out parent when we know we spit up and feel all that guilt!
But why stop there? I mean the devil has the media in the palm of his hand, controlling all the members of the movie industry through greed, vanity, lust, desire for riches, power, fame, freely giving it out to those who can bring in the most worshipers, but thats for later.
Part 3 to come.
