The following link provides a very long and revealing list of examples of corruption. Corruption so mind boggling, thoroughly entrenched, and systemic, that it becomes clear to the reader that all the warnings put forth by the founding brothers of these United States, have come to pass. Is there a sector of society yet remaining that is not plagued by corruption? Our institutions of education, finance, politics, religion, entertainment, etc….etc….ALL riddled with the kinds of malignant status quo, the likes of which are only seen historically in those empires that fall quick and hard.
Those samples at the link above are but the tip of one behemoth of an iceberg. One that makes our nation, metaphorically speaking, the Titanic. Truly, nothing short of the kind of unanimous repentance which took place at Nineveh in ancient times after the prophetic announcement through Jonah, should suffice to stave off the long gash that portends to rip down the hull of our Ship of State! Our once mightily blessed nation has covered hole after hole in her hull with band aid after band aid, such that if they were to be all ripped off at once, what would remain?
If you can, rent or borrow a local meeting space, hand out flyers, and educate your immediate neighborhoods to the benefits of hanging together, instead of hanging separately! Prepare and strengthen all who respond in your immediate areas. Act vigorously, for there are no “do overs”. Our founding brothers didn’t get any. The ‘heroes’ of the Bible, at least those who’s names we remember, didn’t either; yet we still read today of their inspiring exploits. Who will read of your accomplishments now and directly ahead? It matters! Even if you are only read about anonymously, even only as an inspired smile on the face of a child who benefitted from your efforts!
It is HIGH time to get off the computer screens and spend as much time as you are able, ACTUALLY SOCIALLY INTERACTING with as many around you as will share in the work of preparing others!
Must we wait until our bloated, collective heiny points to the heavens, our bow to the great deep, before getting our “act” T-O-G-E-T-H-E-R? Apparently, some have learned from history, at least enough to start ‘manning’ the life boats before the fatal impact occurs….but given our shared predicament, is not the impetus to STAND and work together, greater, than waiting paralyzed until it is entirely too late? Floating around in the debris, hoping for a crowded and precarious life boat pickup? We all know how that worked out for the disenfranchised that were steered into that literal iceberg in the North Atlantic not so very long ago…
There is HOPE for Tomorrow.
And Yeshua, Jesus Christ is not just a ‘Lifeboat’. He is The Ark through which a New Heaven and a New Earth will be borne.
