An excellent encapsulating blog post on 'current events' from William Wildblood really gets at the root of things.
Some edited/ excerpted highlights:
Almost everything we hear from official sources is a lie, either an outright lie or a distorted truth, and meant to promote a certain agenda: To create a world of masters and slaves. This is why the powers that be are busy destroying their own cultures and economies...
The spectacle of people participating enthusiastically in their own demise would be absurd if it weren't tragic.
Such intellectual and emotional manipulation of the populace seems to be pitifully easy. Is this because we are no longer trained in critical thinking but just told what we should be thinking? Is the desire for acceptance so much greater than the desire for truth?...
Our Western civilisation is in the process of collapsing, aided and abetted by its leaders, and we are being encouraged into going along with ideologies and measures that will bring this about.
We go along with these things because we have lost touch with the spiritual dimension of life and therefore to anything real and objectively true. But the consequences of going along with them separates us further from spiritual reality. It embeds us more deeply into the fundamental spiritual sin which is rejection of God.
The globalist goal of supranational totalitarianism which is widely known though not yet grasped by the man in the street. But the demonic goal of damnation is much less understood, and mostly only by serious Christians.
Events in the outer world have a twofold significance. They are used to move on the globalist agenda. (Pestilence, real or imagined, war and rumours of war and famine are all helpful in this regard.) Society is broken down so it can be rebuilt in the form those seeking control wish. This, of course, will be presented as an act of benevolence or else necessity.
But beyond all that is the demonic aim of the spiritual destruction of souls. It is on this that we should be primarily focused, because the body lives a few decades but the soul can live forever.
So, see all current events in the light of salvation and what your reaction to them might mean in that context.
