When the hyena’s cackle and turn on one another, we laugh. We laugh because we think we are above the backstabbing and hypocrisy. But lately I have been the brunt of numerous online attacks from supposed conservatives who have lost all sense of the logical and rational means of communicating. It’s as if the global upheaval is just too much and insanity is creeping into their brains through their eyes, ears, and mouths. Hideous frogs vomit from their mouths. Jesus on the Cross: “Father forgive them for they know not what they do”.
Attack is like girls who slash themselves to re-impose their internal pain to an external pain as a distraction. It is born of immaturity.
But they are fulfilling Biblical prophesy.
The once patient are now quick to temper. The once reserved are lashing loudly. And the once pious are filled with arrogance. It is a torture of sorts. Waiting for the slow death, starvation, and disease that are governments and NGO’s demand we be subject to. Many will crack as we now witness in China. And yet all of it is so unnecessary. Not just our behavior, but the destruction of our globe by the truly wicked.
The news is brutal. Finding something positive is an endeavor that seems unfathomable. I remember a dream I had some years ago;
I had finally made it to the top of the mountain – a metaphor of life – but when I did, before me in the distance, across the horizon, were endless valleys of mountains that extended to eternity. Each way down large rocks and boulders had to be navigated. I sat down on a rock and began to cry. Then Jesus came up behind (I never saw Him – but I felt Him) and put a hand on my shoulder. He told me to not be afraid. He said that the way down was to shadow the tree line where the grass was green and to slalom my feet like snow ski’s so that I would glide down. I felt so relieved so cleansed that I didn’t even think about ‘the next mountain’.
The point is – the mountains are endless but standing still – arguing and fighting – gets you exactly nowhere. We need to embrace that now more than ever. It doesn’t mean going to church more, or giving more to charity. It means whether you are at the top of your first, third or tenth mountain, whether you are plowing downhill, taking out a few people as you continue your journey will not profit you.
I will continue my research and my writing to hopefully uncover more truth within the pillage of lies, and sometimes I might be wrong. Attacking me for the moments I am wrong, while standing absolutely stalk still, means you have succumbed to the wicked. And your assault is no different than a slap in the face or a punch in the stomach.
Don’t be the one in the lament of Jesus when he said – ‘Father forgive them for they know not what they do’.
DO SOMETHING! And never stop climbing!
