Modern Life: How Fragile!

FRAGILE stamp

After a recent summer thunderstorm, the power went out.

Shortly thereafter (since the power was out and normal routine was disrupted), a short trip to a nearby town was organized.

On the way to the town, there was a stop at a local convenience store–which, from all the outside lights being off and the gas pumps not running, it was determined also had no power. In fact, the store manager was outside in the parking lot and confirmed as much.  She was smoking a cigarette and chatting with a milk delivery man–since the power was out and there being “no way to log in the milk delivery“–whose milk truck stood idle in the lot.

The thought was then entertained, “How fragile are the foundations of modern life! How tenuous is the reality/world around us! All it takes is a lack of electric power and the whole economic system of this small rural area is very much disrupted–until it comes back on.

“What if it did NOT come back on?  What would happen then?”

Most folks plan out their daily routine based upon a series of small tasks which they believe they can accomplish: wash the car, vacuum the house, pick up Beetle and Junebug from school.

They then loosely plan their week based upon these many small tasks: start the coffee pot, get a cup of coffee, warm up the car, go to work.

They THEN plan their lives based upon many of those parts of their daily routine: save for the kids to go to college, fix up the basement, add a porch, pay off the house.

BUT what if those small tasks could not be accomplished?

Let the reader take a moment and imagine how differently his day might be if no electricity was available.

Electric pumps for the water one drinks would NOT be functioning.

Electric pumps for the gasoline which powers the cars would be out of order.

A lack of electric power would cut many items from what modern man feels is necessary to live a “normal” life (to charge electric cars, to light the night, to keep our homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer).

Yet the Corporate Media (Satan’s Mouthpiece) constantly reminds Americans of the possibility of no electric power: due to hackers, solar storm, terrorist attacks on the grid, EMP attack, climate change, squirrels, whatever.

One imagines that the reader’s day would be QUITE different than his day is today.

One imagines that the reader’s day would be QUITE different from what he had planned.

One imagines–if the power never came back on–that the reader’s LIFE would be quite different from the life he had imagined he would live.

YET, few have not only NOT considered such a world for themselves is possible: even fewer have taken the time to consider what this would mean to the life they have imagined that they live.

And THAT is how fragile the grip most have on their reality: all it would take to radically change their life, their expectations, their very reality, would be something as likely as a complete loss of power for a few years.

Never mind if a war broke out and came ashore to American soil.

How tenuous is the reality/world around us!

Can the reader see the foolishness of placing one’s faith and trust for the future in something so fragile as the electric power grid?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
