There are times when a GOOD POINT is raised during a spirited discussion of a topic which is completely different from the point raised.
There’s also times when ONE good point turns into MORE THAN ONE good point.
Both circumstances occurred not long ago.
The discussion in question started out as a conversation which focused on the lying Corporate Media and its many lies.
The conversation got underway when someone mentioned how FRIGHTENING the nightly newscast was becoming.
“It’s scary! war with Russia, China, solar flares, no power, climate change, inflation: there’s so much bad things happening right now, it’s hard to know where to begin!”
About this time, someone else mentioned a GOOD POINT.
“As long as you’re getting scary stories on the TV, nothing much will happen. Because when the REALLY BAD STUFF starts happening, there will be no warning! It will be sudden and quick! Wait and see…”
[NOTE: This was NOT considered a GOOD POINT just because this writer happened to strongly agree with it.]
“Economic collapse and financial upheaval FOR SURE! Sudden with no warning!”
“There’s NEVER any warning when things get REAL bad. Wait and see…”
The good point that turned into MORE than one good point?
As long as the reader is being plied DAILY with stories of doom, gloom and cataclysm, it’s VERY unlikely something really bad will happen at that moment. Whenever those stories come to a sudden stop, however: Look out!
As an example, the run-up to World War II is a good one to illustrate this point.
Day after day, week after week, month after month: the talk in the media was NOTHING but war, war, war and the horrible consequences such war brought. The world’s people–particularly the Europeans–were SCARED STIFF of war.
NO ONE wanted war.
Then the ‘reporting’ quieted down and the citizens began to think, “Maybe it will all work out? Maybe things will get back to normal…”
Then suddenly: Germany attacked Poland and WWII was on in a matter of HOURS.
The reader can–if he wishes–use this information to his advantage during the end times.
As long as the media is playing “Scare the readers,” EVENTS should be fairly quiet.
When Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media) starts talking about a ‘return to normal’: Look out!
Sometimes, the media plays “Scare the readers” right before the government shakes the citizens down for an economic beating using higher taxes.
Get ’em good and scared and then–ZING!–hit ’em hard with the TAX STICK.
As stated: forewarned is forearmed.
[NOTE: There’s much more to say on this topic: some of it from that recent conversation. God willing, we will return to this subject matter again in the near future.]
“Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.”
DOES the dire news of the ‘daily news’ scare the reader?
HAS the reader ever said to himself, “It can’t possibly get any worse!”
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.”
