Mystic’s Pragmatism: Enemy ID
I need to get something out of the way before we get to the point of this post. When I sensed God was demanding I limit myself to prophetic ministry and nothing else, particularly in writing, I honestly thought I wouldn’t have much to say. But since that day, stuff has been crowding into my consciousness, demanding I express it on pain of going honestly insane. It’s the old “fire in my bones” thing Jeremiah expressed.
Somewhere between my intellect and the imperatives of my spirit rests a powerful sense time is short. Surely you realize I can’t explain it to anyone’s satisfaction. On a purely intellectual basis I believe we are at least going to see a dramatic change in all our lives via banking and currency issues right around September-October this year. It’s just my opinion, and I sincerely hope I’m wrong. But that thought has threads reaching across the shadows into my non-conscious mind. Not so much the timing, per se, as the sense of urgency is what keeps nagging me in those quiet moments.
So it’s as if I’m trying to deliver all the truth I can cook up in a consumable format. I sincerely hope the recipes aren’t giving you indigestion, or that it’s not rotting before you can use it. Still, it’s a lot more than I anticipated, and each of you surely have on your plate a lot already. So if you aren’t actually reading any of this output, I really would not blame you on the human level. Unfortunately, I simply can’t shut up.
One of the things which seems to me such a huge waste of time is all the massive pile of articles in the alternative news market which tries way too hard to ID who is doing this or that. Unless you intend going out and assassinating a lot of plutocrats, it’s probably not very useful information. It’s typical of activist mythology, thinking you can change anything of significance by all that yelling, screaming, agitating, protesting, etc. Let me assure you, even if you were assassinating and bombing, it wouldn’t change anything. It would require a government-sized budget bigger than that of the US. And if that’s not enough to discourage you from folly then try this: God Himself will actively oppose anything like an armed revolt.
That’s not to say you can’t defend your mission and calling, and kill according to your convictions. I admit right now: If something like mandatory subcutaneous RFID were proposed, I would probably kill people to avoid it. That’s not the same thing as a general armed insurrection, despite how the government goons might read that. And there are other issues for which I’ve already posted here over the years you can justify use of violent force. I haven’t changed my understanding on those matters.
The point is pragmatism from a mystic’s point of view.
You could curl into a ball and simply intone “Satan is doing it all!” True, but not exactly purposeful. But that’s no sillier than the extremes of campaigning suggested by all the various activist voices you can read. If God tells you go and join OccupySomething, go. But don’t assume that means He’s going to do some grand miracle and change the oppressors’ minds about it. Because for each single issue you seize upon, there are thousand others going to bite your butt before that one’s done.
This thing is too big, too far along, and there are simply too many of them riding herd on too many attacks. It’s not possible to change the overall result by stopping any number of them individually. So naming the key figurehead on each really serious problem is TMI, and withdrawing into isolation is only for total wimps. The only thing you can usefully change is what you build inside your soul. For that purpose, it’s enough to make broad sweeping generalizations about what the plutocrats are doing on a wide scale, and that they have an intelligent and dastardly intent. I don’t have to name which individual is thinking which thoughts and plotting what specific evil will be done to us; I can’t even guess intelligently most of the time. What I can do is look at the big picture and see the consistent trends, and see how it hurts people and how nobody cries but the victims and some useless, impotent idiots on the sidelines.
Prepare? How? All I have is some estimate arising from my personal experiences. I can tell you in general terms physical fitness makes everything easier, but my plan probably won’t work for you. You want some guidelines? Think back on all the things you learned from Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. We learned the US government wants to demand everyone strip naked, and chain themselves to the ground in the ready position so they can be raped at some random official’s convenience. It could have been worse, but the federal agencies weren’t that well coordinated. Next time their brutality will be more systematic.
And when things get really crazy and tense and people are about to revolt, that’s when some disaster always has to happen. If a natural disaster doesn’t show up on schedule, there’s always man made ones. Whatever you believe about 9/11, never forget how officials handled people in the aftermath. Never forget how utility workers were cut just before that nasty storm left places like Ohio without power — still! For all intents and purposes, certain non-government businesses are still going to act as bad, or worse, than government. They are all the same people.
Then I want you to remember this is what you should expect, only worse, when the next big event comes along. It doesn’t matter what or when. If your soul isn’t ready to face the most important challenges, the only ones about which you can actually do anything, then a whole warehouse of survival equipment and supplies won’t help you. Adapt, stay on mission, let all the world go to Hell and everyone you love die, because you can’t stop it. Find something to believe in, something worth looking a fool and maybe actually killing someone else.
Finally, understand the most important thing is your commitment to that mission, because in the most real and ultimate sense, that’s who you are. That’s the truth against which this whole filthy lying plane of existence cannot stand.
