RANDOM THOUGHTS 13
Originally posted: September 21, 2021

 

Various bits of miscellany which have accumulated (mostly on sticky notes) since the last RANDOM THOUGHTS (almost four months ago).

+ Perhaps this edition of RANDOM THOUGHTS ought to be labeled “Continuing Updates,” since several of the notes have to do with checking the Corporate Media’s (Satan’s Mouthpiece) progress on assorted story lines they had begun.

+ OR, perhaps this edition of RANDOM THOUGHTS should be titled, “GREAT End Times Changes,” as several of the notes have to do with the sundry CHANGES which have taken place over the last twelve-fifteen months.

+ One of fashion’s latest trends–which started many years ago–is the wearing of sunglasses in order to portray the wearer as an effortlessly COOL person.  Yes, we know the rocksters have been doing this for years, but it seems to be spreading to other pockets of the rich and celebrated. NOT ONLY THAT, but it appears that there are regular, ordinary people who walk among us who believe that if they don a pair of shades, they have somehow changed the composition of their being.  They have not–but this hasn’t stopped these hipsters, young and old, from  trying.  SOME go so far as to alter their speech patterns once they put on their casually COOL sunglasses. IF the reader believes that his whole persona CHANGES when he sports a pair of dark glasses, there is NOTHING that can be said to him to disabuse him of this notion.  MAYBE, when one sees one of these poseurs, the BEST thing that can be said is “Wow!  You REALLY look good in those sunglasses!”  Of course, the reader should be aware that this will only encourage such folks.


RANDOM THOUGHTS


+ Perhaps NOTHING illustrates the modern reliance on MAN and the SCHEMES OF MAN (including government-backed schemes) to, not only provide comfort and joy, but also to soothe whatever nerves might be fraying due to worry about the future AS the various plans involving  Social Security–or other privately-administered retirement programs.

+ The most common reactions to ANY suggestions that these programs will soon enough be nothing more than a bad memory, seems to fall into four groups.

a- The first group reacts with COMPLETE and UTTER DENIAL.  “Why do you say that?  No, it will be fine! They have very smart people working night and day to make sure that never happens!”

b- The second group reacts with (what they feel) is REASONED DENIAL.  “They would never let that happen!”  “I deserve that much!”  “Any politician that would let Social Security fail would be looking for another job ASAP!”

c- The third group reacts with DENIAL based on how many years they expect to live. “I worked hard for that!  Take it away? It COULD happen, but I’ll be dead and gone when it does!”

d- The fourth and final group reacts by ATTACKING anyone who suggests that the gravy train will soon stop. “You’re one of those nay-sayers.  What are you: a Communist?”

+ The number of folks who seem totally baffled by the details of modern conveniences–such as hooking up a DVD player to a modern TV–appears to be growing.  This was evidenced lately when, upon stopping to chat with an acquaintance, the visitor was met with a query, “Are you an electronics person?”   Now, the reader should be cautioned that NO surveys were conducted; NO studies performed; NO testing of this observation in ANY form was done.  It is only an observation based on the many pleas received OR the number of folks who have taken EXTRAORDINARY measures to ensure that their TVs or cellphones are working properly.  These are NOT technologically-challenged knuckle-draggers, but they include a man who recently invested, not only in some woodworking tools, but also LUMBER and hardware, so that his TV would receive the optimum number of channels from his somewhat-complicated antenna setup.

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you”
–Mark 13:3-5

Though mankind is warned REPEATEDLY in God’s Word about DECEPTION during the end times, most completely ignore whether they are lied to or whether they are told the truth DEPENDING upon how favorable their circumstances are at that moment. The ONE circumstance which Jesus Christ Himself cautioned against was end times deception, including the deceptions associated with false prophets and false Christs.

+ Yet, Americans in particular (though they may loudly protest), are okay with lies AS LONG AS THE GRAVY TRAIN KEEPS ROLLING.  The country can be falling apart, American leaders might be ESPECIALLY terrible, and the culture might be bleeding sewage, but as long as the checks and money keep flowing, Americans might grumble about the other stuff, but they’ll “roll with it.” It is STRONGLY suggested that once the bucks stop, Americans will suddenly discover they have been LIED TO!

Heavens.

+ Was wondering the other day about HOW MANY have bought their “Team SCIENCE!” T-shirts?

IF one is going to fall for the stories, one really should go all in.

+ Headlines from the past few months about cars going bye-bye.  The reasons given most frequently are 1) giving up cars is good for the planet; and, 2) Cars are too expensive for the average person to own.  (Of course, the government and Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media) will NEVER run out of REASONS WHY prices are so high, money is so tight or products you need are so scarce.

+ RE the promises of man: WHOEVER is president of the USA–when the USA ‘goes out of business,’–will be remembered by future generations of Americans as a FAILURE: a goof; a bonehead; a fool of the highest order.

+ The ‘pandemic’ and all of its associated stories seem to have slowed down the rush to make HALLOWEEN into the Great American Holiday Season.

We will see…

 

WHAT ‘random thoughts’ does the reader have to ADD TO these?

It is not YET too late: there is still a little 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.”
-–Romans 1:16
