The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ The Spirit of Deception

And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.~ Daniel 12:1-3

This came to my mind yesterday… When I grew up mothers sacrificed themselves to have children…totally in line with the natural world. Today we live in a society where mothers sacrifice their children for themselves…in abhorrent contrast to the natural world…on the same day I watched Michael Knowles neutralize the insane rationale of a trans-activist. And I thought to myself, how in the world did we get here? And then it dawned on me…at the dawn of AI…the irony of all ironies comes full circle. Women who sacrifice their own children for themselves ultimately kill themselves, which is exactly what we see happening in this fascinating Knowles clip. She is arguing for her own death!

Daniel’s 12:1-3 time of trouble sealed until the end of days, which I argue we are now in, seems remarkably self-evident from where I’m standing. One half of our societal means of procreation either already has or seems determined to take itself out of the equation. But, what about the other half?

Where are the soldiers of the Cross for Christ? Let the God-fearing, the honest, the strong-hearted, who look steadfastly to the glory of God. Prepare themselves for the battle against error. There are too many faint, cowardly hearts in this hour of spiritual conflict…Oh that out of weakness they might be made strong and wax valiant and fight, and put to flight the armies of the aliens. ~ E.Z. White

The greatest want of the world is the want of men. Men who will not be bought or sold. Men who are in their inmost souls are honest and true. Men who do not fear to call sin by its right name. Men whose conscience is as true to the duty as the needle is to the pole. Men who stand for the right though the heavens fall. ~ The Book of Education

These quotes come from Doug Batchelor’s message “Outnumbered by False Prophets” sent to me by my pastor this past week, answers the question as to the whereabouts of the other half. And it raises another question regarding the Daniel 12 prophecy. Who among us shall be found written in the book…the they that be wise?

This is an amazing hour to be alive. It really is a story of the lost and found. It’s a bitter/sweet hour. Bitter, because I don’t know that there is any hope for the trans-activist and those like her outside the church, any more than I hold out hope for those inside the church suffering the vice of effeminacy, choosing their own comfort over the battle against error…learned though they may be…

“God often works more by the life of the illiterate seeking the things that are God’s, than by the ability of the learned seeking the things that are their own.” –St. Anselm of Canterbury, Benedictine Abbot, and Doctor of the Church, died 21 April ARSH 1109

Sweet, because He lives…and He’s bringing a new thing!

Sow for yourselves righteousness, Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the Lord, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you. ~ Hosea 10:12

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. ~ 3 John 1:4

Farmers know what it means to “break up your fallow ground” brothers and sisters.
