The 'groaning' and bible passage could be from the beginnings and need for God to stop/destroy the world -or- start again, in hope of redemption, sufficient to justify the decision. Death brought in yet Christ comes to destroy this and the enemy power over humanity. The potential for the willing in the freedoms of free agency considering capacity/opportunity to overcome and free up.
Leaves questions to get-on, among other topics that already plan to launch into.
We live in a technicolor hi-def., full state-apparatus blazing - idolatrous world. As it 2023/4... grows, so will the shame and scrambled thinking. The separation is underway with the cash-spending in independent shops, if at all possible -and- the majority vision-less and content to sheep along. The weary and reticent to get lost in screens -and - the slaves to the click and hypnosis. There'll be seekers of others looking for community and hope and solutions -and- the learned (to be) helpless and yes, ...hope-less.
Hope doesn't come in strength until its needed. Serious physical sickness tops concerns, which for the lucky/blessed, extends to a loved one or ones. Am in hope can recover something after decades and wasted years, having health-enough to achieve it. As for the world at large? The way the enemy seems to operate has given us the possibility to push-back.
Far as my research reads back and we should have been sunk on the social, but...?
Not satisfied with explanations that are confident we're in the end and giants for the dystopic are ready to lock us all up. Nor can it be read that we'll not get taken into something like a North Korean prison.
Over and under all this is a deterministic view that isn't a theology or biology that makes sense to me, and so we're in with chances, and so, h...o... p... e... .
The person who tells one side of a story seems right,
until someone else comes and asks questions.
We embody and reveal what we self-reckon or spout out.
If we don't feel it, we can always put action first and do what the ideal would look like. Find the smallest and out of others' sight is where the truth be told. A corresponding dynamic is about poverty and need. Expectations and all that.
Not sure the situation that's emerging has sunk in and overall the atmosphere is 'keep it in the day and carry on'. Fair enough and am likewise in that mode but there's denial and suppression to consider and somehow best process, while keep-on keeping-on.
The madness by the marionettes called MPs etc., is going to get pushed into outrageous extremes. We'll see when it begins to rock us and the need will not be; take to it the streets and anger. It's what the enemy wants and excuses to prosecute and persecute in response.
So all am writing... is give, hope a go.
Takes actions that are consistent with it. Transition time and find compadre -or- remain blank and vulnerable as troubles increase? The news-at-six type stuff is almost all projection as it moves to the next dose of subterfuge to cause anxiety. Troops in war zones and areas where people are starving for food aren't in make-believe places. Yet, in the UK for most part, it's about a psych-up battle. The physical poverty is there, intense and horrible for those in it rather than invading the masses to a crunch-point.
Done under two (m'thinks) and is a disciple and ritual. Got to press on regardless of feelings and up-for. Testing to see if sending emails to subs. (Seems not?). Not something am gagging to happen and this exercise in persisting to rant. Like if could 'say something good'.
Can't tell the start time (no sub. email to self) but will do.
The good news is God is real and here for good. All the rest comes second and while revival tarries, need not and not content to give up.
