The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:
And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
Isaiah 40: 3-5 (King James Version)
This post is a continuation of the previous post, “Here We Go Again….”. And for this post, I found the above Scripture-usually read at Advent-is appropriate.
In regard to the “predictions” regarding September 23, 2015, people are quick to talk about the end of the world. However, even with a casual glance, I find it’s not the end of our world-humanity and Earth-no. What I have seen are predictions dealing with politics, religion and economics-things The Powers That Be had a chokehold on for ages. And if you’ve been awake the last few years, there is a growing number of individuals who are taking back their political, spiritual and economic power and returning it to the grassroots level.
To be honest, I think the real scaredy cats are those in power. For the first time, We The People are-in small numbers-waking up to the lies that The Powers That Be foisted on us for a long time. These people created a system to keep us enslaved to debt and dead-end jobs; religion based on “follow the leader, or else”; and mindless entertainment-from reality TV to NFL-to keep us off balance. Police brutality and a surveillance state to keep people in line. And when we do wake up at times, some “news story” (i.e.: Cecil the Lion or Donald Trump’s antics) to distract us. Plus, endless wars fought under false flags that kill more innocent than combatant population.
Tonight’s verses are Isaiah’s prophecy that God is going to straighten shit out. These verses are usually attributed to Jesus, however that has even been questioned. However, I believe that these coming “end times” are going to usher in a new beginning. I don’t know how long the change is going to be, or how extensive, yet the change is coming. And ain’t nothing those in power can do about it!
I believe God’s going to allow We The People, the grassroots, the “99%” to usher in the changes. It’s not going to be the politician with police and solider, but the man/woman/child on the street with peaceful responses. It’s not going to be the CEO of the Fortune 500, but the entrepreneur who believes in putting people over profits. It’s not going to be the pulpit, but the pew. Not the institutional church, but the organic believers on the outside. It’s going to be an interesting time for all.
Welcome to the future folks! Get ready!
