Time for our government to open cambridge analytica's books and see/reveal the complete truth.  Who is paying for their services?  What are those services?  Whatever member of congress isn't interested in doing so, make sure you vote for the 'other' candidate. 


Think?


Ephesians 6:12...For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

What if we humans can be manipulated by means that go beyond our understanding (like on facebook via words, videos, or images?)?  What if we can be brainwashed by a formula?  What if they have discovered our inherent weaknesses?  If we are without a firm foundation, are we not that much more vulnerable?  Build your house on the rock, my friend, and get a clearer understanding and vision of what is to come.

Build Your House on the Rock

Matthew 7:24-27…"Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.  And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

Weaponized


Now that the internet has been weaponized by Russia…I’m in the beginning stages of signing off forever.  Hello TV again?   Well, that just depends on the integrity of that format.  If it becomes obviously compromised, I’m moving to the little house on the prairie minus commercials.  I’m quick on the mute button.

What I loved about the internet was the information it provided.  It was like having the encyclopedia Britannica (and much more) constantly updated and on hand at all times.  Now that that ‘encyclopedia’ has been corrupted beyond measure, and will be corrupted further without fail, I am looking elsewhere for facts.   Russia is one actor that has successfully undermined the accuracy of the internet in hopes of undermining democracy, in an attempt at destroying the USA and its allies.  Indeed, information warfare is as dangerous as anything relating to nuclear and should be defensively responded to in like fashion.  Whether you destroy a nation with lies and deception and manipulation, or with a nuclear bomb, that nation is still destroyed.  

Hopefully ,the alarm just went off.  Time to wake up and do what is necessary or be complicit in the fate of the world as we know it.  Can it be worse?  YES, a billion times worse.  Remember, the devil is a liar, and the author of lies (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yck7gb_qdDI ) .  

John 8:44… You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

How's that working for you?

I can’t count the times that I have wished that Paul or one of the other new testament writers would have spelled things out so clearly that there would never be any room for misunderstanding/misinterpretation.  I feel similarly about the creators of the constitution of the United States of America.  

We are living in an age in America where owning guns, any type of guns, no matter their deadly force, has taken on an almost religious status.  I’m certain that the creators of our constitution never intended that.  At the time of the writing of our constitution, we were a brand new country, and without proper organization could be vulnerable to attack.  At that time, our primary weapon would be hard-pressed to shoot one bullet every minute or two.  Hence, as a country, we needed a well regulated militia in every state to ensure our country was unified and safe.  We needed an adequate deterrent that showed the world that we couldn’t and wouldn’t be easily over-thrown by outside forces.  If you come after us, you do so at your own peril.  What some gun owners are forgetting is one thing…this type of deterrent needs to be WELL REGULATED.  You have to be able to work together seamlessly, even between states, otherwise you have chaos.  In reality, it seems the creators of our constitution explained it pretty well but some people MISS the obvious.  For instance, as a gun owner, are you meant to be part of a well regulated militia?   Are you part of the national guard?  Yeah…you probably aren’t.  You are much more likely to be an individual that loves your guns more than just about anything and has somehow made gun ownership part of your patriotic religion.  In case you haven’t noticed, at this point in time, we have a very well regulated/organized militia in every state, and a federal military that defines the very picture of deterrent. At the time, the creators of the constitution didn’t have the vision to know how advanced we would become when it related to weapons and their killing power.  My goodness, as we’ve mentioned, they were still using muskets!  The founding fathers just didn’t know the future.  Now people hang on words they don’t fully understand in the context they were given and then assign their own meaning to them.  Hence, in ignorance they think it’s their patriotic duty and right to buy the most devastating weapons that they can.   I’ll never believe that was our founding fathers vision.   If the founding fathers knew a time was coming when just one numbskull, one malcontent, could easily and legally purchase a weapon that could kill/wound a hundred innocent people in a moment or two, I’m most certain they would have edited whatever they were thinking of saying and said something far more limiting and defined.  Yeah, as a current/typical gun owner, are you part of a well regulated militia, or are you just someone that thinks owning the most devastating weapons on earth at this time is a fun hobby and confirms you as a patriot?

But what if some extremists out there are right?  What if it wasn't really about a militia at all?  What if the creators of the constitution, were, in actuality, so worried about their own integrity, as well as the integrity of any government official that followed, decided (under pressure - amendment) to allow the masses to be armed as a check on their own government's power?  What if they decided that allowing the masses to possess/accumulate weapons was the answer to governing the government?   Yeah, the only problem with that line of reasoning is that the constitution doesn't say that.

How’s that working for you? 

Betting on mercy...

Like Noah, I'm betting on mercy.  Unlike Noah, I'm celebrating it.  Keep up the mercy oh LORD.

What to choose?

When you tell your beloved 85 year old grandmother that they look great in their Easter outfit, that's one thing.  When you manage to rise to a high level in government and then you stand before a hundred or more cameras ready to broadcast your comments worldwide and you lie through your teeth, that's quite another thing entirely.  A whole lot of politicians stand on that precipice...a win today, but eternal destruction tomorrow?  What to choose?

Revelation 21:8..."But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars--they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."

Are you watching?

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.  People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,  without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,  treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

Though nothing will stop the downward spiral,  Jesus told us to 'watch' so that we are not caught unaware.  Are you watching?
