Written by Steve Schmutzer – If you respect the facts and know the truth – this is a maddening and senseless time to be living in.
For those of you like me – who react to lies and deception about as favorably as rolling around in a pile of moist manure – here are some facts to reorient your sanity’s compass during these crazy times.
This is the truth – like it or not. These are facts – no matter who opposes or censors them, or what they say or how they say it.
In no particular order:
- Trump won the 2020 election by a record landslide. Most of the left and corrupt RINOs – and certainly all rational Americans – know this.
- The Democrats engaged in unprecedented fraudulent schemes to put an incompetent, incoherent, and doddering old fool in the White House.
- The world’s leaders know the current American President is neither legitimate or capable of governing. They do not respect him.
- The COVID-19 ‘pandemic’ was planned to have global impact well before any regular person on the street had ever heard of the name Dr. Fauci.
- Dr. Fauci may be a lot of things, but ‘science’ is not one of them. Nor is ‘ethical.’
- The COVID-19 virus was generated in a lab in Wuhan, China. It was funded and engineered by corrupt people with malevolent intentions.
- The COVID-19 ‘vaccine’ is no more a true vaccine than the moon is green cheese. The CDC changed the definition of a vaccine to try to explain away the ineffectiveness of the jab.
- More deaths and adverse events have resulted from the COVID-19 ‘vaccine’ and its parade of boosters than all other vaccines together for the past several decades.
- Masking policies were never about reducing the spread of the virus. It’s clear masks don’t work for that – and those who claim they do have left their brains at the door.
- Masking policies were always about imposing greater controls on society – especially on those the left didn’t particularly like.
- The current ‘pandemic’ was just the first pass. It was a test trial. There will be more – and like this one, they will also be planned.
- The present energy crisis in America is 100% on Slow Joe. He inherited a nation that was an energy exporter and was energy independent under Trump’s policies for the first time in 75 years.
- The present record illegal immigration crisis is 100% on our Charlatan-In-Chief. He discontinued building the wall which had proved to be effective in slowing illegal border crossings.
- Gas prices had already surged an average of $1.50 / gallon under the Biden regime well before Putin ever began assembling his troops on Ukraine’s border.
- Biden has earned every credential that marks him as weak, senseless, incapable, rudderless, and ethically compromised on the world stage.
- America is suffering under the militant and ‘religious’ fervor of the radical Green New Deal progressive-socialist climate-control nutjobs who are pulling a lot of Demented Joe’s strings behind the scenes.
- The goal of the globalists – including those mentioned in points 1, 2, and 16 above – is to weaken America and reduce this nation to a whimpering participant in a new world order. It’s why they hated a “Make America Great” plan.
- China will invade Taiwan and will force it to become part of China. America will protest this, but it will essentially do nothing.
- Israel will be forced to deal with Iran’s true nuclear ambitions on her own. In the interests of self-preservation, Israel will do what Israel must do. America will protest this, but it will essentially do nothing.
- Putin is likely to continue his military campaign beyond Ukraine. His desires are territorial. He wants to restore Russia to the glory – as he sees it – of the former Soviet Union. America will protest this, but it will essentially do nothing.
Want me to continue? I certainly could.
There is much I could add about pro-abortion matters, the gender-disruptive assault on women’s sports, this administration’s disastrous foreign policy positions, activist judges, the blatant suppression of free speech, the media’s true role as propagandists, our record inflation, abandonment of Americans on foreign soil, and all sorts of senseless ‘woke’ postures and tyrannical trends that have sharply surged in JUST THE LAST YEAR!
But I imagine most of you are not reading this with a barf bag handy. I don’t want to inconvenience you.
The overarching truth is that opening statement – this is a maddening and senseless time to be living in.
The parallel passages of Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 describe a time in which deceptions will increase, in which pandemics will be prominent, in which famines and food shortages will threaten, and in which ‘wars and rumors of wars’ will increase. They also mention a surge in earthquakes – – have you seen how many of those have been cropping up with greater frequency around the world now?
To be sure, we are seeing the early signs of trends that will ultimately culminate in Jesus Christ’s Second Coming. The Bible makes this clear.
But in the meantime – we all need to find our second wind. We need to straighten our spines. We need to patiently endure.
You see, Jesus says about all these signs, “….but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is not yet.”
So – get a grip. God knows the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10). That includes right now.
Here are a couple of bottom line issues for you and I. Number one: nothing’s out of control. This is all by God’s design, and Jesus warned us it would be this way. These things are proving your faith.
Number two: this is just the start – it’s going to get a whole lot worse. No, you can’t vote your way out of this one. See point 2 above.
Pick your friends carefully – – – and pick your church the same way. Be extremely wary of those who choose to believe and support the lies and deceptions. This is no time to be propping up anyone who’s not paying attention to the facts, but who’s rounding the corners of truth instead.
Those who are shedding their primary responsibilities, or who are trying to distract you from all that’s really going on are not ones who have your best interests at heart.
This is no time to be deluding yourself with the notion that things are going to get better, that Biblical prophecy is not important, or we just need to get someone with a red tie in the White House.
This is a time of raging evil. It is animate, cognizant, and calculating – and it doesn’t care about you at all. This evil has been preparing for such a time as this. It’s just getting rolling….
This is a time to be wise. This is a time to be studying God’s Word. This is a time to live alongside others with humility. This is a time to be praying and to be evaluating your own heart before the Lord.
This is a time to be looking up.
