We have, for some time, been fulfilling the prophetic phrase spoken by Jesus when He described the end times and how one would know when it was here. One of the event was the new idea of “wars and rumors of wars”. As a child I was very intrigued by what the heck a “rumor of war” meant. A war is the most outward expression of anger and failed communication right? It cannot be a rumor.
Enter what I now call the Thought Wars.
The thought wars have been around since propaganda became the norm but got jump started in our century with the Cold War. Wars on paper, wars fought in secret, in posturing, in propaganda. Now it has gone into the deepest recesses of our mind.
At least with a real war ones inner most expression of self is intact. The action of fighting is empowering, an outward expression. In a typical war there is a “front”, a place where the two sides meet for the clash. One knows where the front is. One can hear it for miles away.
With Thought Wars it is the opposite. The war takes place in our minds. There is no front line. The shells are the lies, half-truths and total bullshit blasted at us from the time we wake up until the time we go to bed. Where truth is not the goal at all. Where the goal is something entirely different.
We are now in an era where Information drives Thought. And the power of Information is in the hands of the few. For convenience we have chosen to enslave our minds are no longer our own.
In order for me to get even an inkling of what is really going on I have to go to outside sources away from mainstream media. I look for similar threads and for the history to clear my mind of the propaganda and lies. The sites in contention with established media. And charitable sites working around the world are also great sources for what is not being reported. The horrific stories of religious persecution and mass slaughter are only the beginning, I fear, as we succumb to the deception that we can all live happily in a global environment once we cast off morality.
The saddest part is that we think we know so much yet we have never known so little. We should be looking to the past as the past is the best predictor of the future. But we have lost our way and our disdain for those who have come before dictate that we are doomed to repeat their failures.
If one knows nothing else about history one must at least keep one crucial item in mind: the destruction of society and culture is always preceded by a destruction in moral values and actions. And that starts with what is morality. And what is fundamentally morality, what causes nations to fall, is found in the Bible.
The Bible tells us to put on the armor of God to ward off the powers of darkness, inherent in all men’s souls. And now this darkness is entering our minds. Be aware, be vigilant and KNOW YOUR BIBLE.
Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 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.13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
