Welcome to the Journey

ARMAGEDDON

For many in America, President Obama was the answer to their prayers, and yet for many other Americans he was the “anti-christ”. Now for most, he has become just another politician who works for those whom the majority of Americans will never meet, nor ever really emulate, though most Americans fantasize about some day becoming the next “Bill Gates”. All that time wasted on futile attempts to become filthy rich, while one could have been helping those less fortunate to become a little more fortunate. All the effort and imagination wasted on selfish get rich schemes could instead be put to use helping bring up the lower classes thereby enriching the middle-class. Together we stand and divided we fall; it is as simple as that.

“Instead the president conveyed the insular optimism of his fat-cat associates: “We are poised for progress. Two years after the worst recession most of us have ever known, the stock market has come roaring back. Corporate profits are up. The economy is growing again.” How convenient to ignore the fact that this bubble of prosperity, which has failed the tens of millions losing their homes and jobs, was floated by enormous government indebtedness now forcing deep cuts in social services including state financial aid for those better-educated students the president claims to be so concerned about.” – Robert Scheer editor for Truthdig.com

For many today the “End” has already come; the end of having a roof over ones head, the end of going to work, the end of eating at least once each day, the end of life as most of us know it. What is even worse, is this insane belief that we have no control over our own destiny. For those who believe in God they should know that God gave us our free-will in order to apply it as we see fit. Just because the Lord knows what choices we make before we make them does not mean that He controls our choices. Why else would God not tell all of His followers when the last day would be? Had God wanted us to dwell on the “End-Times” He would have given us a clear date. The fact that He did not do this indicates that His desire is for His followers to live each day to its fullest until there are no days left.

As it appears today, a large portion of the American society has determined that the world will not see the year 2013. If enough people believe that to be true, they just might hasten their own demise; for them the world will end in 2012, one way or another. Hopefully, there are enough intelligent people within America today that have already realized how dire our situation is at present and have begun the process of living a more appropriate life. A life that conserves more and consumes less, a life that considers the other person at all times knowing that whether its your neighbor across the street or a complete stranger across the ocean we are all intricately connected.

All who call themselves Christians should be ashamed at yourselves for the simple reason that King Y’shua Messiah was explicitly clear on how His followers were to live. Instead of trying to convince each other of how rich King Y’shua Messiah was while He walked this planet, we should all be studying and applying His words and actions into our own lives beginning with the Beatitudes. If we were doing this today the world would be a very different place.
