I've always suspected . . . and expect more than ever now . . . that many of us will be suddenly faced with a stark, ominous reality of feeling and being . . . quite alone and cut off from previously reliable sources. I think "they" will use shock and awe--the element of sudden, profound, surprise attack . . . to catch the people off guard. You will have to make life and death, freedom and imprisonment decisions . . . on the spot, with little to go by besides the leading of the Spirit.
. . . .Which will be terrifying for most . . . as, in reality, they are quite unaccustomed to the Spirit--are strangers to the Spirit; finding out very harshly and in panic . . . that they are not so tight with God as they imagined themselves to be. It will be realized that "god" has been merely an idea--a purely intellectual experience . . . superficial . . . powerless . . . pretend. . . .
Tough guys will crumble and fold by the scores who once talked the loudest about "standing ground".
So-called "friends" and "family" will betray at the behest of the slightest remunerations. . . .
Very few will actually be reliable, trustworthy . . . which will only heighten the sense of alienation and "cut-offedness". . . .
There is going to be little time to stand up and shout "See! I told ya'll so! We're being tyrannized by a fascist/communist global Satanic-technocratic dictatorship!"
Attachment to material and geographic possessions . . . will prove disastrous (as in, if you are being led to move, get away quickly from some region, but you can't make yourself leave your things behind. . . .)
Much of my writing, as I've mentioned before . . . has been an effort to help prepare and harden/refine readers' minds, hearts and spirits . . . so as to NOT be overwhelmed and paralyzed by surprise . . . or made dumb and stunned by fear and awe at the things coming about. But instead to be SPIRITUALLY prepared to face any event or development . . . as well as mentally/emotionally . . . for having already rehearsed and pondered the awful, ominous happenings finally coming due, such that you can remain poised, gracious, ethical, Godly, righteous, strong. . . . To be a strength for others and a light, and to do God proud (so-to-speak)! I've been writing with these days in mind that we now find ourselves on the very brink of, not caring that it seemed extreme or paranoid or whatever at the time, when things were still relatively "normal". . . .
But now, all but the utterly clueless and delusional . . . can see what's underway--the culmination of years of diabolical planning--and that it's about to get real rough.
Fasting and prayer. Let them become regular, reliable companions along the way/Way.
