A very popular question this time of year seems to be, “What do you think the New Year will bring?”
(OR, something similar along those lines.)
NOW (as we wrote several years ago), the first thing the reader should remember–should he find himself being asked the same question (or one very much like it): practically EVERYONE who makes such a request is NOT all that interested in your reply.
What they are doing is a social matter: they are just greeting you using something nearly everyone understands.
This is like the person who asks “How are you?”
They REALLY do not want much detail in your answer. Offering a “Fine–and how are you?” is very much the desired reply. THEN, the conversation can move on to more important things.
SO, when someone asks about 2021, it would be wise to remember that SHORT AND SWEET is the proper answer.
Something like, “Pretty much more of the same, I figure. What do you think?” has become the standard, accepted reply of this writer.
THEN (after the other person makes what he will of your reply), the conversation can move on.
“What do you think the New Year will bring?”
HOWEVER, there are a select few people who DO want to know what you think about 2021.
(This article is for those select few who really want to know and who didn’t get a chance to ask in person.)
1- The Bible gives NO specific advice on the new year, one way or the other.
2- Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media) wants folks to think 2020 was BAD.
- 2020 was a year of desperation and darkness. Here’s how people around the world found hope.
- 2020 was a terrible year for Europe. 2021 is unlikely to be much better

- Is that light at the end of 2020′s very dark tunnel? Here’s the year-ahead outlook for key Dallas-Fort Worth industries
In fact, it wants folks to think 2020 was VERY bad.
The unspoken point the media is trying to make is that 2020 is VERY bad and is an aberration; that 2021 will be SOOOOOOO much better (especially for America!)–just you wait and see! 2021 has also been associated with that ever-elusive will ‘o the wisp: a return to NORMAL.

3- One man’s considered guess is that 2021 will be more of the same as 2020.
2020 usheredin the beginning of RULES UNLIMITED because of the “coronavirus/COVID-19.”
Wash your hands–repeatedly.
Wear your mask.
Practice social distancing while in your line.
Go get your shot (more than once, it seems).
Show us your papers.
Do not gather together with family and friends.
…and so on and on and on…
2021 appears to be more of the same–and MUCH MORE!
4- The continued decline of the US economy looks to continue.
More business closing. More that stay open moving elsewhere. Restrictions announced because the business has to “cope with COVID-19.”
5- The continued push to buy one’s neccessary items ONLINE.
Businesses not only have less items on hand to sell, they announce on their websites “This item NOT available in store (or for pick-up).”
6-2021 looks to continue the massive shift from buying a product in person to being approved to buy a product and then (hopefully!) the customer will receive what he wanted?!?!
This shift to buying and selling ONLINE brings several more layers of control over who gets to buy a product. At every step, the buyer has to be approved before he is granted the opportunity to pay for something and then wait for it to arrive.
Have enough money in your account?
That’s only the beginning of mass approval processes which ENSURE that only the most acceptable will be able to buy a product.
7- For the few who pay attention to what God’s Word warns of the end times, 2021 will likely move humanity further down the unsettling road to a world in which they did NOT grow up.
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
“And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse [Jesus], and against his army.”
FINALLY, it is the SINCERE hope that all who read this will turn to Jesus Christ, repent (change their minds about sin) and join forces with the kingdom of heaven in 2021. The reader should NOT listen to TV preachers, false prophets, the local branch of the churches or ANY other person but what God’s Word declares.
2021 would then be a VERY GOOD YEAR.
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) 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.”
