Tendency to reckon it's all blowing-up around us in society and happening, comes... and, does it go? The book of Revelation is about such a time, and maintain isn't a textbook or map of our times but a pictorial representation of the truths we go through now and beyond our physical death.
The shock and awakening to the hidden histories and goings-on knocked my life and well-being a decade or so ago. Made a personal chaos and mess of it in response. Somewhat to do with the intransigent attitudes by all and any people I spoke with about it. Carried an uncomfortable burden of expectation and imminent banking crash. Didn't happen. The past few months, at last doing a better job of adjusting to the surreal spectacle upon us. No drinking or smoking and the need to escape helps. 2020-22 was a culmination of the pain and dealing with the catalytic surrounding-pretense. Unable to look after a captive mother who I lived with, (as should have), is a scar would like healing from to be a more effective wounded healer-like for others. Mum taken to a care home at the end and the ostracisation by family and her friends, remains as the personal cost of the 'scamdemic', we all, suffered.
Empowered to face up and on with the living one and push through inner-barriers to a life of praying-a-lot.
Thankful for decent health, finances/easy-earner and living in an unnamed-Highland -as good as it gets- location. Yet, nowhere is beyond and far past the consequences of the three years of trauma -and- the impending/imploding, lack of income/cost ratio. Suggest 1992/3 was a phase with Agenda 21 and we're into the significant new-level battle for over it; the emerging un-stoppable decline, or miraculous wake-up and push-back?
This week two witnesses to the calamity we're being put upon with:
This week 'B1 regulations' are causing Ghanaian fisherman to return home and face an exam to return. If they're working less than 12 miles from the shore, their skipper/boat owner faces £20,000 penalties per worker from now on. To hundreds of pounds for the certificates, a thousand for a lawyer that comes to the employee. For a Ghanaian, it's all about sending wages home to wife and children. A month's wages here, takes the equivalent of a year to earn back in their homeland.
Youth got fired up seeing me last night. The around 14 year old's reacting after previous engaging banter. This kind of disclosure is why I keep blogging/blogs, quiet/don't tell anyone/ if, at all(?) and locals, i.e. Truthscoop and prayerletter.substack.com
They were shouting and running off, blaring out "hey Jesus" Shouting and posturing in anger, while trying to be funny and smile. They wanted others to think I'd sold them drugs. Trying for a wind up. Yet, they have been sincere and most respectful on one or two other occasions.
They saw me from a distance and found somewhere and someone to express upon. Looking for an outlet and distressed at the lack thereof.
Reason to note is about the critical signs of the times; economic migration and autocratic unnecessary meddling/penalisation. The malevolent, state apparatus, is growing. While a look and email from Jon Rappoport links: www.americanthinker.com/articles/2023/04/teachers_unions_are_destroying_american_education.html (will break my no-website fast, and read...(sometime) - get the headline is enough).
What's doing is extremes and while reticent to add a most-misapplied term in 'mania/manic' behaviour. It's all about the unresolved and three past-year trauma. The lack of process through honest talking. The boys who taunted me wanted me to come to 'confession' as though it was me..., who had something to disclose.
The Book Of Rev. is about honesty and that's about all. We have one best way aka, not 'sin' and with reasonable reserve and when and the need for someone to know: get release through talking sincere attempts at truth. Avoid lying.
The last decade and conclusion of hours a day analysis is the crashing is here and now is drawn in, and driven by each of us, when participating in (the) deception.
The deception, is the deception.
On an hour and, done and done.
Revelation is a book to read. The 'aloud' in the early verses in the NIV isn't in the original but a helpful nudge in a productive direction. The bible isn't for doctrinal learning and flat, cold, study. Sure, there's a place for working it out and gaining theological perspectives.
More, it's a dance-with; a song of a psalm and a sing; a grab and get-filing our thoughts; a word and words to ponder and let sink in and apply and get deep in and strength through. Into our heart and passions.
The bible reads us and is a two-way communication signpost to God and conduit for God's spirit to arrive in more power.
