Living in perilous times

Updated: Apr 29

This is indeed both an exciting and a stressful time to be alive. It is written in 2nd Timothy 3:1 that in the last days perilous times shall come. I am sure that most everyone reading would agree that we're living in those last days right now. When we read on in the chapter, we begin to understand just why these days will be so difficult to bear. It's because of the people who are living amongst us. It says in verse two that men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous,boasters, proud, blasphemers,disobedient to parents, unthankful, and unholy. Do you think we have some of those folks around and amongst us today? I could actually say almost all of those descriptions apply to our current President. It has amazed and saddened me that otherwise good intelligent Christians can't seem to see what for me is that very simple thing. But that's a digression and really we could apply those same adjectives to most all politicians period today.


But we move on in 2nd Timothy Chapter 3 and we see these folks are also without natural affection. Ultimately for God's election, whomever and wherever they may be, some of the people they believe have the most natural affection for them will turn them in to the Antichrist to give testimony against him. That will be brother betraying brother, parents betraying children and vice versa, and on and on as mentioned in Matthew 10:21 among other places. There will also be trucebreakers, false accusers, and highminded people who despise those who are good.


Before I get to the main point understand that right now we're in the preview or viewing trailers of this real life movie before we get to the main attraction. Ultimately I can't stress this enough and I do not want to misuse God's Word. 2nd Timothy Chapter 3 I believe deals with people who in some cases are counterfeit Christians and at any rate mostly draw people away from following Jesus Christ. Look at verses 5 through 7, 2nd Timothy 3:Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.


But that said, these types of people exist and are here now in these last days. They are who they are and they have the qualities that God and Timothy list above.


Again, the main reason for creating a blog is both having essentially my own place because of the increasing censorship of Facebook. Since Covid-19 hit and took over the mainstream, I have probably been tagged a half dozen times or so, give or take one or two, for posting what they deemed fake news. Keep in mind that in practically every instance I never said that it was true. In some cases I believed it was. In other cases I wasn't sure. But it was sharing what I deemed an interesting point of view and allowing people to decide for themselves. Many times my comments on the provided link indicated as much. But Facebook and the other controlling entities don't want that. It's interesting to note that a comedian, George Carlin, told more truth in 3 minutes than Facebook or the media maybe ever had.


Of course, when you look at Facebook's "evidence" for why a particular post or story is fake it's flimsy and backed by pretty poorly researched mainstream rebuttals who essentially have their own agenda to debunk anything that pokes holes in the mainstream narrative. Like when multiple media outlets and voices abroad not only in Russia and Iran but also friendly nations like Japan were saying there was reason to believe that coronavirus began here in the United States. In admittedly skimming the rebuttal and reason why it made the story I shared "fake" what I did not see was any reaching out and questioning these sources in Japan, Russia, and Iran, and I believe one other nation at minimum as to how or why they came to the belief that coronavirus started in the United States. It was just, "there's no evidence it started in the United States". Or the time that they said it was fake news that there was a patent on the coronavirus applied for by a foundation funded in part by Bill Gates or that Event 201 was a simulation of a coronavirus pandemic that killed 65 million people even though these things are mostly true.https://www.factcheck.org/2020/01/new-coronavirus-wasnt-predicted-in-simulation/. Yes, I understand that people can jump the gun and I understand that the patent wasn't on this particular strain of coronavirus and the simulation wasn't likely for Covid-19. But it is perfectly healthy and natural to wonder just why they're trying to patent viruses to begin with and why the son of a eugenicist and admitted population control proponent was attending a coronavirus pandemic simulation event months before we had a coronavirus pandemic. Yes, one can get carried away with conspiracy theories over it if they're not careful. Or, one can have a healthy discussion and debate and reason these things out without interference from big tech, corporate, media, and government overseers. But again those same overseers don't want that? If they have truth on their side, what do they have to fear from the sharing of information that proves to be false? But if they try to hide what is done in darkness then they have much to fear.


John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.


It is indeed mysterious that a social media company that has a mission statement in part of giving the people the power to build community and to share would resort to such censorship. Although, again, it is not so mysterious when we follow the money and remember that Facebook donated $20 million to globalist controlled organizations to advance their version of "truth". https://techcrunch.com/2020/03/13/facebook-commits-20m-to-unf-who-and-cdc-to-tackle-covid-19/?guccounter=1. This after doing essentially the same thing or partnering with the same people on vaccines. Now Facebook can make whatever decisions they want to an extent. If they violate their own mission statement that apparently doesn't bother them. But having essentially no voice and no avenue to protest a decision or dispute being labeled as "fake news" has indeed lead me to hopefully find more fertile ground elsewhere.


But of course Facebook is only part of the problem. As the panic spreads and as more and more people are consumed and stung by the fear, the "turn in your neighbor" brigade is growing and I think we can call these types indeed anything from false accusers to traitors to despisers of those that do good. Now, that isn't to say that all of them are evil. But right now while I think we're in an awkward time, to me those who do good are those who are trying to stand up for everyone's liberties as well as get people to think and question why certain things just don't add up. It's an awkward time because while we are not yet in a one world order or government, I fully believe they are trying to transition us into it. There's a fine line between wanting to stand against tyranny and eventually getting out of the way and letting God's plan come to fruition. Don't get me wrong. I think it's fine to speak out. I do and do so rather frequently. But knowing that this is being used to bring about the one world system is something I believe we need to keep in mind as well. Certainly when that does come we need to not fight it but allow it to happen as the negative part of God's plan.


But in the meantime and before that,as people grow more fearful we will see and apparently are seeing them turning against their fellow citizens and there are both government and media voices encouraging them to do so. In Britain the police have encouraged citizens to turn in violators of the lockdown via a hotline number or a website. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/11278436/cops-brits-telephone-snoopers-form-coronavirus-lockdown/. https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/03/28/uk-police-create-web-portal-to-inform-on-lockdown-violations/. They did the same kind of thing in Bellevue, Washington.https://bellevuewa.gov/city-news/report-stay-home-violations. The New York city mayor and the Los Angeles mayor, mayors of our two largest cities, have followed suit.https://defconnews.com/2020/04/19/nyc-and-la-mayors-want-people-to-rat-out-coronavirus-lockdown-violators/. We can even throw disobedient to parents or at least not honoring your parents as the New York Times has tailored articles to younger people on how to properly inform or educate your mom or your uncle who might be caught up in coronavirus conspiracies. I have heard personal stories of a janitor literally spraying a Facebook friend with some type of unknown disinfectant because she wasn't "social distancing" from the woman she sat beside. Another person informed me that when someone tried to go into the local Wal-Mart via the wrong door, five people blocked his path and yelled at him. I'm sure stories like this go on and on.


What's interesting and ridiculous at the same time is that no one knows whether someone is leaving for an "essential" reason or not. They just know that they're leaving. One of the days I was working on this particular piece, this going by memory is what I did. I left at 6 something in the morning to a quick cleaning job at a site. I came home and left again at about noon to grab some KFC. That was the one "non essential trip" in as much as I had food at home. But it of course is still allowed. At 3 PM or so I went to the auto parts store I was laid off from to pick up a thermostat for my car. At 7:30 PM or so I went to do another job for the same company that I did the job for at 6 AM. Point being I left my driveway 4 times that day. Yet there was a legitimate reason for 3 of those trips and all of them were at least allowed. But in another place I probably would have been reported by someone.


So for Christians, particularly those Christians who may one day speak out against the Antichrist, I think we're seeing a prep and a very strong type for even more perilous days to come. If they'll report their neighbor for the good of the community for violating the lockdown, what will happen in the future? I'm sure they will have no qualms about turning in those "rebels" who can't accept that the false messiah standing before all is none other than the Dragon Satan himself. Stay tuned, stay watchful, and stay in His Word. Things will get more and more interesting for sure.
