Ezekiel’s Valley of Dry Bones

While God held Israel to a very high standard, He did not necessarily hold other nations to that same standard and why would He, since He had not revealed Himself or His covenants and commandments to those other nations? Israel was different. Israel was expected to take care of their own as God took care of them. Jesus spoke about this often and the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5 – 7) is just one example of Jesus reminding the people of Israel how they were supposed to live.

Growing ET and ETI Awareness

Since the 1950s in America, we’ve seen the rise and increase in interest of all things extraterrestrial. People love to think about life beyond the stars, but not God. They like to believe that everything that has always been attributed to God really should have been attributed to aliens. Those aliens want to help people of the earth to gain ascendancy over their hatred, their warring, their bigotry, and their lack of enlightenment.

Can We Ever Have Enough of God’s Counsel?

The history of Israel is replete with failure after failure. At times, it seems that their failure is more often highlighted than any successes they may have experienced when they chose to follow God’s directives. The same holds true for us. We can either follow God at every turn or make the mistake of thinking we know best only to learn that we know very little.

What Might Bring World to Chaos?

Even if Donald Trump is able to go a long way in setting things right throughout America, it may not be sufficient enough. In fact, history shows that the ebb and flow of society is constant. We’ve had the Dark Ages, the Age of Enlightenment, as well as other “ages.” During these times, it seems that the bad and good exist together with one gaining more ground than the other for a time. The same is happening today, but there is an earnestness in society that appears to be cultivating more of a relationship with evil.

To Err is Human, To Deceive Is Satanic

As we see things in society and Christendom become more lawless, it is important to understand that we must cling that much more to all truth found in God’s Word. The only time it is permissible to break societal laws is when those laws put us at odds with obedience to and worship of God. While wanting to allow more “refugees” into America may appear loving, compassionate, and even Christian, the reality is that there are already millions of people in the USA who are here legally but being treated as if they are garbage. We need to focus our attention and love on them before we begin to reach out to those outside of America. That is what Christ would do.

Mindfulness is the New Transcendental Meditation

The same holds true of people who move off into the realm of transcendental meditation or Yoga. It really doesn’t matter what it’s called as all of it – including mindfulness – is rooted in Buddhist beliefs. These practices open people up to the spiritual world and the beings who exist there. It opens the door to their direct interference and influence in a human being’s life.

Bite-Sized Bits of Info Rule Society

Society has been dumbed down and that is certain. Postman says that is the effect of our complete and total reliance on technology of the digital age and where we have been forced to accept the bland, monotonous, and culture-lacking appeal of information that is given to us in carefully sliced and diced bits of information; something that is reflected in the title of his book, Amusing Ourselves to Death. Is it really that different from what the Roman Empire sought to achieve for the masses by offering them “bread and circuses”? The people were fed and entertained. They didn’t care about things after that and because of that, were easily amused and directed. Unfortunately, it may well be where not only America is at or heading to but all of global society.
