WHY Doesn't That Change??? We Have Discussed This Before.

And I believe it is worth mentioning again. Ever hear this question or ask it yourself? I heard it again, recently on a radio talk show.
Guest: This labor law was written in 1933 and companies, schools, agencies still use it to write their polices today.
Host: Why hasn't someone updated the law?

Now, my on going question is how can a law or philosophy or attitude continue for decades or centuries?
  • Peoples attitudes toward each other based on color, ethnicity, language,
  • Company policies differentiating between employees based on gender, marriage or children status,
  • Academic organizational structure and educational philosophy, 
  • Religious organizations views of each other or other beliefs (Christian, Islam, Catholic, Judaism.
I submit the following as the simple answer for a complex question.

A mentor surrounds his or her self with like minded people that allege themselves to the beliefs and goals of their leader/mentor. Independent Thinkers and Unbelievers are eventually purged to prevent corruption of the body.



This structure and process can continue forever and may if the overall performance of the group is not illegal, immoral or unethical or a danger to the majority rulers. Slavery was brought into this continent,  accepted and continued until a civil war was won by those opposing slavery. The physical act of slavery was abolished but the Mindset of those wanting it did not change, it went underground.

You may ask how a leader can find those like minded folks. Consider this: He/she searches for people
  • graduating from certain schools
  • attending similar seminars
  • drive similar vehicles (trucks, motorcycles, autos)
  • frequent similar social events
Once those are located, a few conversations, some fellowship, discussions about current and future goals and how to achieve them. Once the connection is made, the person is brought in on a trial basis. Within a few months, the selected candidate is confirmed and becomes a Team Player. During the Introduction Period, if certain defects surface, the candidate is gently and quietly moved aside and then outside the Circle of Insiders. The process is surprisingly simple, efficient and effective.

General Motors, Chrysler Dodge and Ford Motor Company had similar thought patterns and management styles, even though severe competitors. The Management Teams of all three had built strong secluded islands within their companies that were virtually impenetrable by any Free Thinkers or Public Scrutiny by any agency including Congress. BUT, they did not plan on the Public rebelling and purchasing outside the designated market; hence Bankruptcy.

Foreign car makers expanded within the U.S. market building manufacturing plants in the U.S. and hiring American workers. Then an upstart designed, developed, marketed and sold an all electric car made in America by Americans. The usual attack methods failed to discourage the inventor or the public from purchasing a car the Big Three told us could not be made.

For the sake of this discussion, you may substitute any condition or people labels in the place of the word slavery and slaves.
  • Women in the work force.
  • Child labor.
  • Source of automobiles.
  • Ad Infinitum
A small town in Florida recently become national news due to its loss of self governing control.

Speed trap city accused of corruption, threatened with extinction

Excerpt from the article: (formatting is mine)
To survive as a city, the good people of Hampton must toss out the old regime at City Hall and bring in new people. Legislators said everyone must go, both elected officials and staff. The city has to get out of the ticket business and give up that finger of annexed land. It has to fix the water system and figure out how to dig itself out of its deep financial hole -- a prospect that could cost every man, woman and child in Hampton at least $500.

I am ex-Army, Christian Pentecostal,  Married, White Elder Male, Texas Southerner, No College Degree, buying a house and Japanese auto. Each of these has worked for and against me during my adult life.  I am also a Free Thinker and this has worked against me almost every where to include Boy Scouts, Church and Employment. People of Authority often say:
  • Gary, I am in charge and we do this MY Way.
  • Ware - just be quiet and obey.
  • Mr. Ware - I am the boss and the only one that knows what to do and how to do it.
  • Gary - you should buy American made ONLY or 
    • we will not be friends
    • we will demote or fire you
    • we will not use your services
    • we will destroy your reputation
If you are an Independent Person, you may have heard the same or similar proclamations. These control people do not want us disturbing the formation or control of their developed world. The Sheep/Followers also get upset when different thoughts or logic is introduced invoking THOUGHT.

History records Pharaohs,  Dictators, Genocides, Slavery, Eugenics, Kings, Presidents, Queens; many were divinely wonderful leaders while others were incredibly wicked. Each were able to reign because of like minded supporters. btw: each of these labels may be applied to any individual that thinks and acts like they are God's gift to a decrepit and despicable humankind. I have lived with the same thoughts of grandeur and grieved my family by my actions. I have served under these type of self-righteous, conceited proclaimers of all that is right and holy, according to them.

As members of free society, we have privileges to vote in or out people representing us in the Public sector. These people have power, authority and responsibilities to enforce laws, update laws or write laws to maintain or way of life. Places of employment or worship are more restricted from Public control but do have Policies or Bylaws to permit substitution of executives; Board of Directors.

Ultimately, we have God Almighty, Jesus Christ to call on for help. If you have another God, does yours work, can you see evidence of active support to your requests? If you have no god, well...there you are.

SO, to those wondering, "Why has this event/our situation NOT changed?" Because the people in power keep adding the same type people which use the same structure, laws and policies. Even though we change the person sitting in the Oval Office, we do not change the type of man elected because the system that actually elects the President are the same ones or same types that created this model, then remodeled it then re-modified it to suit their purposes.

I am neutral on the organization called "Tea Party" but I commend them in their efforts to change the system by removing the current officials by lawful means. Revolutions and Coups do not work when trying to achieve a long term Good to Excellent result.

Correct what you can and may, adapt to what you can, leave the area of complaint AND REALIZE the structure in place will not change until the people in place do. Historically, Godless people or People of Occult practices choose bad to evil lifestyles; whereas Godly, righteous people tend to harmony and peaceful lifestyles.

Originally, laws were developed and written to protect individuals and groups with Justice intended. We, the masses trusted and trust our leaders to govern us properly but being human and carnal we all tend to lean to the Darker Side of life.  We cannot give carte blanche to any person in power or authority over us. Without Checks and Balances, anyone can be corrupted by unlimited power or unaccountability.

Vote, Resist, Pray, Serve.

I mentioned, earlier in this blog, my religious affiliation because it is a significant part of my life and I observe its process. The Christian organizations such as Baptist, Methodist, Catholic, Pentecostal and Assembly of God developed and modified their structures over centuries. Some organizations retain control over the Pastor, Priest, or Leader to protect both the local assembly and the unity of the parent organization. Others allow the pastor autonomy to rule locally as fits the area free from a distant monarchy. 

The local Pastor can and may be voted in or out if they go rogue by the local church board unless...UNLESS that person builds a new building in a different location. The Pastor then becomes the Founding Pastor and cannot nor may not be removed by anyone. Is that cool or what? What happens if that Pastor goes bad? Each member has to decide to stay or leave based on their conversation with their God - Jesus Christ, who is really in charge of the place. 

The same process works in every employer run company for every employee.  Even though I left over 26 companies during my adult working life of 42 years and those companies or the branch I worked at closed, I finally understood that the next employer I aligned myself with was very likely to be like the last one I left. What was my option? Stop working and live a nice life on Welfare or start my own business. Four times attempted, four times failed. A successful business person encouraged me to keep trying because, as he put it, each time I tried and failed I learned what I did wrong and was one more attempt closer to success. When I finally transition from this life, whatever I accomplish and succeed at will be the legacy I leave for my children and grandchildren; and so will yours be.

 Vote, Resist, Pray, Serve, Succeed.

The Following Is Not An Advertisement. It IS A Wake-Up Call.


Excerpt from the book: Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us by Moss, Michael (2013-02-26).

[Now, they had to grow their profits every ninety days. The result was that food companies had to seek new ways to market their foods. And they did that by making larger portions, by making food available absolutely everywhere, by making food as convenient as it could be, and by creating a social environment in which it was okay to eat all day long, in more places, in larger portions.”

Moss, Michael (2013-02-26). Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us (p. 338). Random House Publishing Group. Kindle Edition.]

Several doctors advised me to correct my diet, as my health parameters exceeded their limits. Occasionally, I would find a book or attend a seminar about foods and marketing and how the stores were mapped to control what we purchase and how much.

Walking through any grocery store confirmed the mapping information. One doctor, recently, really emphasized I read about processed foods and, of course, he recommended a book. I read it but the author seemed more concerned selling his miracle cures which turned me off to the truths being exposed.

Several weeks ago, I overheard another author speaking of the processed food industry and his intent sounded more sincere. I ordered and finished reading, “Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us by Moss, Michael (2013-02-26).  I mentioned the book and contents during my reading and having finished am struck by the severity of the information.

We, the public, are commodities to the Food Processing Companies and are negative health issues are simply put – collateral damage – to be accepted as part of any profit making business. In my opinion, Michael Moss, has maintained an honest objectivity about a potentially very emotional process and outcome.

As a practicing Christian, my primary duty is to live correctly.

Note: Allow me to deviate for a comment.

Christianity is a lifestyle.

Holiness is a lifestyle.

Christianity and Holiness IS how we dress, speak, think, EAT, entertain, act. Christianity and Holiness IS balance and self-discipline.

As a practicing Christian,  part of my responsibility is to inform people of a better way to live leading to the better of one of two eternal living locations. Within this process are the choices of maintaining my physical health through choices of diet and exercise.

If I choose to abuse diet for pleasure, this affects my emotional, physical and spiritual lifestyle – to the negative. BUT, if my choices appear wise and the results are still negative, then something else is at work, hence the book, I read and recommend. If you are a confessed practicing Christian, I strongly suggest you must read this book, for your sake, your children’s, your friends, and future friends.

Social Media is flooded with dire concerns about Government over regulation, Police Organizations over reach and such, while our health is being aggressively, ruthlessly, systematically and intentionally destroyed by companies touting family values. They ply us with their multimillion dollar designed and expertly presented commercials appealing to our sense of being and family care.

Many such organizations, companies, behaviors are not going away without the return of God as absolute reigning monarch but we can modify our behavior and move our money to items providing more balanced health and nutrition. My wife and I have renewed our label reading efforts to accept or reject foods presented.

We are all going to die and my preference is to live until then, with as little medicine as possible and the best health I can affect. I absolutely DESPISE being negatively manipulated for someone’s gain.

BTW: If you are not Christian but desire a healthy lifestyle and prefer to know what you are eating, I strongly suggest you read this book, think about its premise, enjoy a fuller life and tell your friends. 

PS: I do not gain any material benefits from recommending this book but my conscience feels relieved

Make Thy Face To Shine Upon Thy SERVANT:

Approaching and Addressing God

When addressing a person of Executive Rank, there is a protocol of actions and words.
  • Captain Bond, Sir
  • Your Excellency
  • Your Highness
  • Mr. President
  • Ma’am
  • Sir
  • Mr. Last Name
  • Mrs. Last Name
  • Pastor
  • Reverend

Watching movies about past cultures refreshes my memories of courtesies, indicators of respect, modest styles of attire and verbiage of humility.

As a child, my elders taught me to:
  • Stand when an elder entered the room and if a woman, offer her my chair.
  • Take my hat off when speaking to a woman or tip my hat when first meeting.
  • Respond with Sir or Ma’am to any male or female older than I.
  • Assist my date, with her chair, when sitting in a restaurant.
  • Etc.

BUT
I do not remember being taught etiquette to:
  • Address God
  • Speak with him
  • Worship him
  • Request help for a need

Worshiping seems to be a natural event as well as asking for help. Americans are not, by nature or education humble people. We used to be much more courteous and respectful (1950s-1960s). So instead of depending on anyone from this generation or mine, I referred to several Bible versions.

Genesis 19:19 New International Version (NIV)
19 Your[a] servant has found favor in your[b] eyes, and you[c] have shown great kindness to me in sparing my life. But I can’t flee to the mountains; this disaster will overtake me, and I’ll die.


Genesis 32:10 New International Version (NIV)

10 I am unworthy of all the kindness and faithfulness you have shown your servant. I had only my staff when I crossed this Jordan, but now I have become two camps.


Psalm 27:9 King James Version (KJV)

Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.


Psalm 31:16 King James Version (KJV)

16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake.


1 Samuel 1:11 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

11 She made this vow: “O Lord of hosts, if only you will look on the misery of your servant, and remember me, and not forget your servant, but will give to your servant a male child, then I will set him before you as a nazirite[a] until the day of his death. He shall drink neither wine nor intoxicants,[b] and no razor shall touch his head.”


1 Samuel 3:9-10 King James Version (KJV)

Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place. 10 And the Lord came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.


Luke 1:38 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

38 Then Mary said, “Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.” Then the angel departed from her.


Luke 1:38 The Message (MSG)

36-38 “And did you know that your cousin Elizabeth conceived a son, old as she is? Everyone called her barren, and here she is six months pregnant! Nothing, you see, is impossible with God.” And Mary said, Yes, I see it all now: I’m the Lord’s maid, ready to serve. Let it be with me just as you say. Then the angel left her.

My thoughts of late have included placing God Almighty Jesus Christ first – verbally – during any communication with him. For example:
  • Good morning Father. You are Holy, Wonderful, Merciful and Very Patient.
  • Mighty God, Holy and Righteous, please regard your servant with mercy and patience.
  • Holy Father full of Mercy and Forgiveness, forgive my iniquity.
  • You are Holy, Righteous, and Your Laws are Wonderful and Perfect. Remember your servant and my family, your children.
  • O God, Full of Mercy and Loving Kindness, remember your servant, my wife, and her health.

What I believe is going to happen, in my life, is a change in relationship and favor with Christ Jesus similar to those before me.

Bible: Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, David, Mary, and Paul.

Family: Grandmother, Uncle, Mother,

Friends: Several have given me great examples of prayer, by their results but I choose to withhold their names.

The majority of people have moments of humility and I know certain ones that their LIVES are examples of humility. The Presence of God is palatable around them. Their speech and actions are tender, NOT weak, but gentle.

AND when these people speak to, about or for God, you FEEL the STRENGTH to the core of your being.

Much, of our lives, is guided by some ritual or rule carefully watched over by an authority figure. But what happens when we live as if we wrote those rules, it becomes more natural, acceptable and blows the mind of our overseers.

When we are in a place of liberty to approach our God in a Respectful, Courteous, Genuine and Gentle Attitude, the result is ALWAYS TRANSCENDENT; Absolute perfect worship and adoration to our Absolutely Perfect and Wonderful Savior and Friend.

Peace Agreement a n d What Else....

Matthew 24:34
Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.
Mark 13:30
Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.
Luke 21:32
“Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.
I have written my thoughts about this topic and each time gained insight into the meaning. I returned to Irvin Baxter's presentations on this topic, recently.
 
During this past year, 2013, this United States of America began a dramatic path to becoming a different country.

And this World accelerated it's journey back to its Past.

Adding one of my posts for review: Consider My Hypothesis.
 
Often, when we have anticipated the:
  • lottery or other contest win,
  • inheritance,
  • dream vacation,
for so long, we get apathetic. Then the Great Day arrives and we struggle to believe it finally, actually arrived.
I am becoming convinced we are at the time written of and talked about for 2000 years.

What I also snapped to is once the Event begins, it will end By OR B4 this generation ends.

I am REALLY interested in what happens in 2014!!!
And after!

The Bad Then The Good!

We watch our world disintegrating daily on every media available. I read a comment after the Mayan calendar ended and nothing visible happened. The author noted certain events, then said, “Maybe they were right after all and the end of the world has begun”. Since that time, every type of negative scenario has accelerated, in every country.  One type of people continues to try stopping the annihilation of every major living group on Earth and the other type are equally committed to the homicide of Earth’s inhabitants.

I cut flowers and weeds and branches and placed them in clay on a metal platter. During class, I asked the students which of the items were dead. Some answered, the weeds, others the  weeds and branches. Several observed that ALL the items were dead. The flowers and branches did not display their death until later.

When leaders and their supporters cut themselves off from the Source of Life, their thinking and decisions produce death that appears to live. In every good story and movie, the bad guys win for most of the story, UNTIL near the end. THEN the good guys are strengthened, inspired an empowered. Usually, recovery and rebuilding are implied as the scene fades.

Keep doing what is RIGHT!!!

One More Disappointment...

I have been a fan of Ancient Aliens for several years. Their presentations were structured, logical, charismatic, plausible. Occasionally, a remark or episode seemed a stretch but overall I tended to agree.
Recently, I opened a site of rebuttals to AA and OMG, was I slapped down. And sad. And disappointed.
Not sad or disappointed because the Truth surfaced but because I trusted the AA staff.


 
As with a great number of people, I have enjoyed a fascination with natural and super natural phenomenon since my teens. I learned to approach this subject with caution because, rarely, was hard evidence available to support the claims. As an adult, in the military and certain government organizations, I also learned hard evidence, such as ground samples, radar recordings, certain photos or videos could endanger one's career.
But, still, what were these and why were they?
 
After reading the "other side" of the coin, I am convinced entities mentioned in the Bible have certain liberties on Earth and in the Heavens. AND I am convinced we do not have to exaggerate or lie to prove their existence
 
You let me and others down, AA Staff. Shame on you.

Well, IF That Is TRUE?! Then Where Is The Evidence?

About five years after returning to Church, I applied a technique that helped me resolve equipment communication problems. The principle also helped during research to filter incorrect or inaccurate from Truth. Decades later, shows like CSI applied the same rule.

IF That Is TRUE?! There should be Evidence?
Working in a data recording department.
  • When the lights change colors, the recorder is in this phase. True.
When Jews/Israelites are present and free to live, the host country is blessed.
  • According to a variety of sources, statistically this is true.
During a variety of discussions on abstract topics, I learned that TRUTH will surface. In fact, instead of arguing, beating, debating or cramming obvious truth down some dimwits throat, just tell the truth. Whether dimwit accepts it is not my or your obligation. and if I am the dimwit, you know what to do.
 
NOTE: Why do we say we are going to stuff this down their throat, when we are trying to change someone's mind? Huh?? Throat > stomach > Intestines. Nowwwww, stuff it in your ear, makes more sense. Ear > Brain.
 
TRUTH.
An independent laboratory yadda, yadda, yadda.
The report by Supreme source of snow job.
One after another "sworn to honor and uphold truth and integrity" lied. AGAIN!
We catch the criminals and PUT THEM AWAY - THEN turn them loose. AGAIN!
People write laws based on emotion or personal agendas and idiots expect them enforced.
I struggle with what is true every day. The Expert, The Report, The Documentary.
 
The Bible tells of a government and system that will be so precisely restrictive that it will attempt control of every individual's purchase and consumption. Seems a little over the top but "if it's true, there should be evidence", somewhere.
 
UN Agenda 21!
Maybe you need help understanding your "consumption"?
 
Honestly, I am amazed and frightened by the Reality of our abilities. From what I understand, from a variety of media, we have the technologies and governments (HOA, City, County, State, Federal) to monitor the activities of every person in the industrial world. Isn't it incredible?!?! We know we can observe every creature on our planet (ATM cams, bird cams, drones, etc.) and I am still getting use to the Smart Electric Meter on our house.
 
I'm not paranoid, just stating the facts. The Geek part of me is fascinated by the possible capability of being able to track the movements and actions of every human being in the industrial world. Living in a subdivision with and Home Owners Association HOA has taken much of the excitement our of being the watched.
  • You have the wrong lights up.
  • You have had the correct lights up Too Long.
  • Your fence is crooked, fix it, or we will and charge you.
  • WE WILL CHARGE YOU, FINE YOU, TAKE YOUR HOUSE AND SELL IT.
I have observed HOAs suing their "participants" for displaying flags not to their liking or not displayed properly (according to their criteria), planting the wrong kind of flowers or in the wrong place, etc. My first thoughts were, "this cannot be real. rationale people do not take others to court. DO THEY". YES! They do.

The States Attorney Generals have restricted HOA powers over the past two years.

BUT!!

Imagine, with me, these kind of dysfunctional, power obsessed, our laws are God to be enforced without thought of Justice or Balance, people. This blog could be several hundred pages to cover this topic in-depth, which I will do in my book. The idea and intent of laws is to provide a society with rules of conduct for the harmonious action of said society. Some laws also include discipline for disobedience. Since any man made criteria or law is not perfect, said laws are enforced by "officers of the law" and they are/were trained to enforce the laws with a sense of justice.
Example:
  • An officer pulls you over for exceeding the posted speed limit. He/she asks you why, you respond. The officer has the option to "let you go".
  • NOW: remove the intent/spirit of the law and leave ONLY the WRITTEN law. The officer gives you a ticket and maybe removes your license.
An episode of Flash Point (a Police SWAT themed TV series) posed the team scenario trying to stop a husband from killing his wife. The SWAT shooter is set to shoot the husband, WHEN the daughter of the couple pulls a gun, walks toward the two firing at her dad. The daughter believes the police are going to wait until her dad actually shoots her mother before they fire. She fires once, twice telling her dad to drop his gun. NOW, the SWAT shooter, which lives by the Letter of the Law, asks permission to shoot the daughter.

Strict adherence to the law requires whoever is preparing to kill another person is the Bad Guy regardless of reason, and he is now prepared to kill the daughter instead of the husband. The supervisor is now under pressure from the sniper, needing permission, and knowing the young woman will kill her dad to protect her mother. He gives permission...BAM...and the daughter dies.

Back in the office, the team debriefs and a member forces the issue of killing the girl. The star cites the law and explains they do not evaluate, they are to obey. The objecting team member cites the intent of law is justice not blind obedience and they wrongly executed an innocent person trying to save her mother. He quits the team explaining he will remain with the Police force but in an area where officers consider justice the primary option.

A news  account of an 81 year old grandmother who tracks down the two men who raped her granddaughter. Took her about a week to locate them. She went  to the motel room where they were staying, shoots both in the groin, goes to the Police Department , confesses and turns herself in. The Police respond to the news by saying, “What she did was wrong and she broke the law; but who wants to put an 81 year old grandmother in jail, when the city wants to elect her Mayor”.  

When any nation, corporation or family lives by moral rules of righteousness and justice, the Spirit of the Law is applied in an equitable and fair manner. We all know what happens when any nation, corporation or family rejects the right method of application; tyranny, abuse, moral and financial collapse, divorce.

NOTE: I like following rules and obeying laws. Experience teaches me those that disobey either usually cause grief or harm to others. My behavioral problem is tending to the No Mercy side for disobedience. I resist this daily and because of it am not the right person for any type of Manager position.
A friend and former Pastor of mine, once told me he did not give me certain assignments, involving people, because he knew I would do Exactly what he said instead of the Intent of what he wanted. I work well with equipment or data.

Unfortunately, as we all know, not everyone in positions of control should be there.
END OF NOTE.
 
Recently, the 6 o'clock news covered a truck driver and a criminal.
  • Owner and driver of the truck hears noises around his truck. He steps outside, confronts a man slashing his $300.00 a piece tires.
  • The slasher stops and begins to leave and not wait to be arrested.
  • The owner shoots him in his butt to stop him.
The Police arrive, apply the Letter of the Law and arrest the owner truck driver. The camera records the owner being taken to jail and no one was sure what happened with the criminal.
  • The criminal had turned his back and was walking away from the owner, when shot.
  • The officer stated a law and charge the truck owner with assault with deadly weapon.
  • Apparently, he was expected to let the criminal walk away and let the police try to find him.
The station asked their legal analyst and his first response was, "the police are wrong in this case and was sure the charges would be dropped". Now I believe a majority of the hundreds of thousands of law enforcement staff are doing a commendable job. My proposition is future possibilities.
 
AND for balance:
 
The Police are following orders, whether they seem moral or not. In each case, the foot soldier is not faced with a clear moral dilemma, although, they may wonder, "What changed?" If you watch each video, notice the comments on the Change of Enforcement.
Now consider:
United Nations Agenda 21
Member Nations - USA
Federal Government
State Government
County Government
City Government
Home Owner Associations
As the staff of each member government agrees to implement and enforce laws of the UN, we become a monitored World Government. The average World Citizen is a peacefully compliant person; which makes it easier for aggressive people to impose their will though laws, policies and ordinances.
 
You may say, you do not know my neighbors or neighbor. True, I do not but unless you live in a crime ridden neighborhood or have that 1 in 50 Neighbor From Hell, the observation is true.
 
For Decades, I have read and listened to Biblical experts speak about:
  • The End Times,
  • Tribulation and Great Tribulation,
  • A World Government with technical ability to deny food, clothes, utilities to non-compliant individuals,
  • Physical resources to enforce (brutally, if necessary) laws to control where citizens live, how many can live and how many may be born.
Germany once wrote and enforced laws limiting children per parents. China did the same. American still gives the expectant person the choices of keeping, aborting, and number. I have stated an observation concerning any leader (manager, governor, minister, president) that they have to have like minded people supporting them (administrative staff, enforcers). History records a number of benevolent leaders and pathologically brutal dictators and each had supporters (as insane as that seems to me).
 
Okay, direction change. The Bible also reveals to us that places of refuge will be available during the worst time in the World's history. History also notes during times of beastly rulers in families, companies, nations, there were brave Godly fighters.
  • Freedom fighters helping downed pilots or escaped prisoners escape enemy territory.
  • Germans providing shelter and escape for the Jews.
  • Peasant resistance during Kings domination.
  • Jehovah prophets resisted cruel Godless rulers.

 Kings 18
7 And as Obadiah was in the way, behold, Elijah met him: and he knew him, and fell on his face, and said, Art thou that my lord Elijah?

13 Was it not told my lord what I did when Jezebel slew the prophets of the Lord, how I hid an hundred men of the Lord's prophets by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water?

1 Kings 19
2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.

8 And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God. 9 And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah? 10 And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

Matthew 24
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day:

Luke 17:31
In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
 
How many are paying attention to current events? Do not know. I know some are because the data I gather come from a range of diverse sources and levels of status.

Have a great day.
