STRANGE DAYS HAVE FOUND US

The 1960s ushered in the full-flowering of a new age, a weird age, with strange days, and pills that make you larger, and pills that make you small.

And today’s pills are consumed in mass quantities by young and old alike, but regarding truth and finding the path of God, don’t do anything at all.

So turning on, tuning in, and dropping out apparently didn’t achieve the desired result. Instead, it was a generation’s call to self-deception and the beginning of a mass exodus to the devil’s strange little wonderland.

DOWN A RABBIT HOLE

Since then the weirdness quotient has been gaining steady ground, through a process of fits and starts, as America decides it will do the wrong thing, then the right thing, then the wrong thing…

The “sane” generation of the sixties supported without question a government that slipped off track, while the up-and-coming insaners kept warning of gross evil and injustice to the nth degree. The sane rejected said argument and continued to blindly follow the lemmings trail. In time both groups merged by believing the big lie and the big liar.

It was only those who got close to the Lord Jesus, stayed close, and obeyed His Word who had a real handle on things, but these were rejected and are still, as the deceived majority always castigates the seeing minority.

And nowadays it has reached such crisis proportions that the majority seems to sit back and be led around by anyone and anything other than the Lord. Like one of those giant schools of fish in the nature vids all packed together like a single organism, moving in mass, darting here and there, told what to think, how to live, and what to believe.

Media manipulation has since sailed way off the charts, as good old Americans do the strangest things. It’s become an upside down world where evil has suddenly been vaulted to the top and worshipped as good. And anyone trying to right the course is seen as a complete idiot and moral degenerate while the real moral degenerates parade around in all their filthy glory with a zero shame index and a conscience long since destroyed:

But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron… [1Timothy 4:1-2]

Some will fall away from the faith. This reveals the exodus of turncoats and destroys one of the greatest and most deceiving false doctrines, meaning many will quit on God and doom their souls for love of themselves and this fallen world.

Paying attention to deceitful spirits. HELLO? Sinners have always accessed the devil’s media, read his books, attended his lectures, and followed his lying advice, but unreal Christians? Uh, YEAH. When the devil speaks, people listen, as to a stockbroker with a hot tip. Better stay in the Word. Otherwise, newspaper taxis will appear on the shore, waiting to take you away.

Doctrines of demons—the teachings of invisible fallen angels—powerful entities that warp men’s minds with convoluted logic and outright deceptions, bringing mass confusion and a complete lack of understanding of the real spiritual world the Lord taught us about. Or tries to. It’s bad enough that people religiously believe the most idiotic things, but “Christians?” Unreal Christianity has possibly done more harm than all other false religions put together.

The hypocrisy of liars. The Lord Jesus warned us about the leaven of the Pharisees, mixing pure grade A extra virgin first cold press hypocrisy into all their teachings, and baking a bulbous loaf of dead bread guaranteed to confuse, obliterate critical thinking, make the partakers thereof spiritually deaf and blind, and leave their sanity on the docks as they sail away into a faux spiritual la la land.

Seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron. Yep. Rejected the Lord. Burnt to the core of their little cerebellums. Up is down and black is white and good is evil, and magnetic polarity reverses course, and they spend their days opening up one giant Pandora’s box after another, beckoning the contents to flee like released rats into the world of the unsuspecting neutered and brainless to passively accept the Last Days Big Fake-Out.

Strange days have found us indeed. The weird quotient is rising exponentially. Hold on to your walk with God, folks, because it’s starting to get really wacky out there. In fact, staying as close as possible to the Lord will be the only thing that will save us from the great deception coming our way.

THE WHITE KNIGHT IS TALKING BACKWARDS

And this is just the start! Wait ‘til you see what’s coming next. If you think it’s weird now, and it is, you will be shocked and awed as the future unfolds. The cat is out of the bag. And more cats and bigger cats will follow. It’s going to look like Alice in Wonderland in plain sight. A nationwide epidemic of slappy face will break out as people keep trying to wake themselves up from the real time nightmare emerging.

These are the strange days of deep deception, the times of night descending into day. The deceiving power of the enemy is so strong we have largely not understood that a vast bizarro world has been surreptitiously built up all around us.

1984 is no longer knocking on your door—it’s in your living room.

LIFE HAS BECOME AN ILLUSION

“…For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and will show signs and wonders, in order to lead astray, if possible, the elect. But take heed; behold, I have told you everything in advance.” [Mark 13:22-23]

Fake Christians could get a clue if they obeyed God and honored His Word, but the great deception never stopped at the church doors. In fact, such places can easily hold their own against any New Age freak on the planet, both in weirdness quotient and outright rebellion. Instead of openly welcoming those dark wispy spectres traipsing down the aisles humming the theme from Star Trek and blowing their otherworldly breaths into passive minds, perhaps checking their credentials first would have been a good idea:

Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also. [1John 2:22-23]

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.[1John 4:1-3] [1]

And it is still in the world.

And it took the pill that makes it larger.

Go ask Alice.

  1. The druggie 60s era, less than a quarter century after the terrors of WW2, clearly was the beginning of a long descent into self-centredness and darkness that intensified into a total selfie culture in the new century. And we wonder why the world’s gone mad. I was a tiny kid when Kennedy was assassinated in 1963 but deep down I knew I was living in a world that apart from the godly faith I was raised with didn’t have a hope save for God’s rescuing saving grace. As our times continue to expose what a messed up world we are in, I’m uplifted by the words of Daniel who also lived in a godless kingdom, and chose to serve the the One Almighty God, even at great risk to his life, Daniel was gifted with prophetic insights and saw a time of ‘the end’ long into the future, and he wrote of the faithful ones of those days— “Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars, forever and ever.” (Daniel 12:3)

    • Thank you Susan. Great comment.

      The Lord always tells whoever wants to know and is dedicated to Him. That which so many have sought using the wrong means and traveling the wrong roads is found in Him. He reveals the hidden secret things to His children who seek Him, who are cleansed by His blood, and walk out life with Him for His purposes. Many Christians simply will not budge. They insist on staying grounded as wingless birds. They see actually entering His kingdom and operating according to His Word as far too strange. Has the weirdness of the devil’s world and the excesses of weird Christians and their strange ways turned fence-sitting Christians off to seeking the Lord in His fullness? Do many reject operating according to the actual NT as too strange and thus reject any possibility of being modern day Daniels?

      At least Alice had the heart to search.

      Blessings to you.

      • Perhaps too many people lack faith or are too busy fearing what others will think if they go all out for God. Others may just quietly serve and hope in Him. All I know is I wouldn’t trade the long winding road to eternity and the true joy now and forever we have with Him…for anything.

        • Amen. The Lord Jesus demands that we jump in with both feet and never look back. He commands us to leave all and follow Him. To do otherwise causes us to miss out on the great adventure of a lifetime!

  3. I was a young teen in the early sixties, started Bible college in ’65, married in ’69. Because of my dad’s good judgment, I was protected from a lot of the nonsense that happened back then. Our TV was strictly monitored, and my dad was a straight-down-the-right-path kind of preacher, teacher and father.

    I didn’t pay much attention to politics until the ’70s, and have paid strict attention ever since. You’re right–it’s an Alice kind of world. There are lots of cheshire cats who reveal only their broad toothy grins, which hide a great deal of evil.

    Remember that old song “People Need the Lord”?

    • Yes. Thanks for the comment, Linda. I’m glad you honored your Dad. It paid great benefits, as does honoring our heavenly Father, of course. I began following currents events and politics at a relatively young age and remember much of the 1960s and the gist of this article. But I am pretty much done. Politics has reached the point of no return, lost over the ocean with insufficient fuel to return to sanity. The Lord’s Kingdom is where it’s at—a solid foundation with all Truth, spiritual security, and our great Master and Lord in charge.

      Blessings to you

  4. These days we are in are certainly not surprising when we look at the choices of society. It is heartbreaking to watch and heart wrenching to understand the horrible consequences of these choices. But I love the hope in scripture, as a previous comment mentioned Daniel. Of course there are others both in history and through out the Bible. May we cling to Jesus and reflect His truth and light to a dark and darkening world. God bless you. 💗
