I haven’t written a political post for a while. I’m trying with all my strength to avoid such things. There’s enough crud going on in our world today, however, I feel compelled to repost an article I wrote several years ago. During the pandemic I have developed a growing interest in world history. The internet is full of stories of war and how they were most often motivated by greed, power and politics. Our blogging friend, Salvageable, has written many interesting articles on war over the span of this world’s history and he seems to agree. I may be considered a nut case, but there are so many things about this Ukranian situation that just don’t sit right with me. Will we all be wiped off the face of the earth for political reasons?
In 1997 a film was released which was filled with espionage, media hype, a war, a scandal, a movie producer with exceptional PR skills and lots of things that eventually came true. It was right before the Clinton-Lewinsky incident. The movie was an interesting story intended to be comedic, but it stirred the imaginations of many conspiracy theorists.
Could such a plot be unfolding right before our very eyes? The President’s ratings go down and there is another crisis to handle. The Congress has pretty much lost the confidence of its employers (us) and the Senate seems to have totally forgotten who they work for.
Rahm Emanuel quoted this early at the beginning of the Obama administration.
“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
Another movie, “the Manchurian Candidate” also dealt with the possibility of a Vice President being groomed by the Manchurian Global Corporation. The man’s mother basically sells her soul to the devil to make this happen. The plan is that once he’s elected, an assassination attempt will be made on the president, thus giving the job over to the son. The main plot is a global takeover by the Communist regime. These stories can make us wonder just how much of this stuff is true.
Our world is and will be in constant turmoil until the Day of Judgment, but we must never lose sight of the fact that God remains in control. If we continue to trust Him, we can be assured of a great outcome.
Lord, our world seems to be imploding. We see signs of end times each day. The ugliness of sin has inhabited every civilization. We turn to you in prayer, to bring comfort to all who suffer and are being persecuted. We pray for those who are starving and diseased. Protect them with your caring hands. Strengthen us through your Holy Word. Amen!
