At the risk of sounding sanctimonious or hypocritical, especially with so many "woke" groups and militant fringe bent on challenging injustices, racism, religious rights, fighting hatred and discrimination of any minority group who might be seen as being picked on, I would like to take this chance to ruffle a few feathers. This post will upset many friends in many countries, which is not my aim, however, it is a subject I have wanted to write about for a while now, especially as current events suggest we are moving into very dangerous times, especially, if you consider yourself religious in any way.
God Bless America.
"God Bless America?" This has to be one of the most toe-curling arrogant phrases on the planet, admittedly, it comes from a toe-curling arrogant country and a people who are only too brainwashed to believe it must be nothing other than the truth. (The phrase comes from a patriotic song written by Irvin Berlin in 1918.) A hundred years later, Americans have taken the phrase, "God Bless America" as a given birthright. Not only is this a dangerous presumption for the 350 million people who live there, yes, God does indeed love all Americans, however, he also loves the other "7.5 billion" people living on planet Earth too, and just as Israel did in the past, America has turned its back on God, who indeed did bless her.
Let me put the phrase "God Bless America" into a truly frightening perspective and a realization just where America is in the great scheme of things in the very unstable fledgling 21st century: America has indeed been abundantly blessed by God since the end of the 19th century. Back then the world was under the dominance of a tiny country called Britain. Britain had at that time created an empire so great (more often than not by slavery and cruelty) it ruled over a quarter of the world's population, the world had never seen such a dominant or large empire in its entire history. A common phrase at the time was: "the sun never goes down on Britain."
Then in 1914, WWI broke out and Britain's empire began to crumble, but a new, even more, powerful country rose from the ashes of WWI, America, which would quickly become the most powerful country the world had ever seen, a "Super Power!" However, Britain's empire collapsed and she joined the ranks of all the other "great empires," lost in history.
A Bible prophesy!
In 604 BC just after Babylon had conquered Israel, Babylon's King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream, Daniel an exiled Jewish man was summoned to the King to explain the dream. Nebuchadnezzar dreamed of an enormous statue with a head of gold, the statue's chest and arms were made of silver, its stomach and thighs were made of copper, its legs were of iron and its feet were mixed with iron and clay.
Daniel explained the dream to King Nebuchadnezzar: Your kingdom (Babylon) is the head of gold, the silver chest and arms is a kingdom that will come after you and rule the world, (Persia). Then there will be another nation, one like copper covering the torso and thighs, which will rule over the whole earth. (Greece). The next kingdom will be strong like iron and will rule the world, covering the legs (The Roman Empire).
Finally, the feet of the great statue will be made of iron and clay and will be a divided kingdom with some parts strong like iron and some parts weak like clay.
Is this a reference to America today which has recently become such an indecisive, divided nation on the verge of civil war? Or could the iron and clay reference be pointing to a collapsed Anglo-American Empire which has emulated Israel and turned away from God and is destined to end up in the graveyard of dead empires?
The dream appropriately ends when a rock was thrown from the heavens and hits the statue's feet, the rock becomes a mountain which is God’s Kingdom crushes all the kingdoms, and His reign will last forever.
Back to the future. "Feet Of Iron And Clay!"
America has become a country seriously divided politically and, appeared to be on the brink of civil war just a few months ago when Trump lost the election to Joe Biden. The new division in a country drifting like a rudderless ship is a vaccinated workforce fighting unvaccinated people who need to work but can't.
Biden has sharply criticized millions of Americans who have chosen not to be vaccinated against Covid. However, back in December 2020 he famously stated he didn't think vaccinations should be mandatory, and in July 2021, he declared America's independence from the Covid-19, that claim has come back to bite Joe on the butt.
The big question now on everybody's lips is just how many Americans will lose or quit their jobs over the mandate, his decision for a mandate is seen as a bad policy which will cause the anti-vaxxers to dig in which could seriously disrupt Biden's drive for economic recovery causing more pressure on his already battered and bruised administration.
America is looking in at its self and is at this moment a ticking time bomb. The Right hates the Left and the Left despises the Right. Something has to snap. Many Americans are fed up with how their once great country is being perceived around the world. Its allies are becoming increasingly worried and disgruntled with America's decision-making both at home and abroad. First Trump, with his "America First," policy and now sleepy Joe's flip-flopping decisions and apparent senile tendencies. The people have had enough and, Joe's vaccine mandate just might be the little nudge the people need.
The West is going the same way and is heading for its own unprecedented"boogaloo" (civil war), "Western Spring." The American George Floyd murder sent seismic ripples all the way from California to London and Berlin to Sydney, causing the BLM, Antifa and left-wing militants to rise up against police brutality, inequality and racism. These movements brought theWhite Supremacists out of the rotten woodwork to lock horns and start bustin' heads.
If a new American Civil War erupts it will surely reverbitats around Europe and of course will hand over even more clout and power to China, Russia Turkey and Iran
It is only with the passing of time and much research I have come to realize just what terrifying horrors are been introduced to the world. Nothing sold to us can be more “pure or more valuable” than what is, “freely,” available and, that will become very clear to mankind in the very near future.
I read somewhere (I think it was a quote from “The Four Horsemen'') that to really understand something is to be liberated from it. Yet, how can we liberate ourselves from our vain attempt at global progress, which has, in all intents and purposes, destroyed the very place we live in? The very word progress means a movement towards a refined, improved, or desired state. Incredibly, our fantastic advances in technology have “systematically destroyed” the very place we are trying to improve and that place will very soon be unlivable for all forms of life due to our hubris! We have become the perfect parasitoid, a parasite that eventually kills its host.
Indeed, our world is in a state of collapse, an implosion on a scale unimaginable just a few years ago, the carnage which is about to be unleashed has been sneakily growing under our noses and is now inevitable. It is now well known among experts and many once doubting skeptics that without a doubt if we continue on our current path (which we will) we will lose our home and everything in it. It is now an undeniable fact, mankind’s environment is collapsing just as fast as its society. Planet Earth’s resources are dwindling at an alarming rate. Animals, plants, fossil fuels, minerals, water, air, and soil are all diminishing at an unsustainable speed while the world’s population is increasing. We will shortly have a situation where nearly 8 billion people will be trapped on a dying planet with no food to feed them.
