It’s been over a year since I last posted on this blog. While I will spare you the boredom of hearing the sad tale why I was gone, I will explain this: During my absence from this blog, I was also largely absent from the internet and from massive US cable/satellite television for over two years. I lived without 99% of the news and social input to which I had been accustomed when I began this blog. No, I was not in prison.
I returned to the 21st century about two weeks ago, both with television and internet service. A lot has changed in the world. When I left in 2012, Isis was a member of the ancient Egyptian pantheon (and a really tacky Saturday morning kid’s show in the 70s). When I came back, it was now an acronym in all caps–ISIS–and the new, awful face of Islamic jihad upon the world.
When I last blogged here in September 2013, I cared to the point of agony that Barack Obama was not only a horrible President, but an illegitimate one deliberately bent on destroying America. When I returned, I had come to accept that this country didn’t have the moral courage to oust the pretender, and I now no longer care. Removing Barack Obama from office now would be like cutting the gangrenous leg off a dead person–pointless and messy.
Larger issues have emerged in my mind, beyond the state of the United States. What I do care about, more so now than ever, is how current events may (or may not) fit into biblical prophecies of the end. I believe Barack Obama has “jumped the shark” if you will in prophetic significance. He could surprise us all and suddenly sprout horns on his head (metaphorically speaking), but it seems unlikely. I do think that it is fairly evident by now that Obama is indeed–as Allen West coined–an islamapologist at the least, an Islamic Manchurian Candidate at worst. Generally, I assume the worst.
But things in the world are shifting mightily, and Obama’s role in it merely seems to be to hamstring the United States so it cannot exert its influence. The rise of Isis, the ascendency of Russia militarily and of the BRICS alliance (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) economically, and the drift of once moderate Turkey toward Islamic lunacy, are all potentially significant events prophetically.
So I will resume posting shortly, and while I don’t claim to have all the answers, but I hope to throw out some things for your consideration. A lot of them will probably be ideas borrowed from others and expanded on; maybe a few of them will be original. All of them I hope will encourage you to look at this world a little differently than how you are accustomed, and maybe in the process find some truth yourself.
