I recently made the comment that the days of big brick houses and ceramic tile were over. Now does that mean that people are going to stop building big brick houses filled with ceramic tile. Not at all. People are going to continue to live as they always have, just as they did in the days of Noah being completely oblivious to things that are going on around them, the very obvious signs of the times with the things that are going on in our world and particularly in our own country.
Is it that people really do not see or is it that they do not want to see? My wife and I have prayed for a long time for God to show us His plan for us, that He would show us a crystal clear path for us to take. To be quite honest, we have struggled over this for quite some time. Recently it became clear to us, actually both of us at about the same time, that God HAS been showing us the path we are to take; we just did not want to see what He was showing us.
Let’s face it, we all have our ideas about where God wants us, what He wants us busy doing, and how He wants us to live. Sometimes…, probably most of the time, our ideas and His plan are not one and the same. Listen very closely: His plan is not always big brick houses filled with ceramic tile.
God has been trying to show my wife and I that the storm clouds are gathering. This is what has prompted the series of posts I am running on Mondays. I do not mean to sound like a prophet of gloom and doom but the reality is, as a nation we are headed on a downward spiral and even if the election turns out to be great and conservatives win, it will only postpone the inevitable. I love the United States of America but like the old saying goes, you can stick a fork in it, it’s done.
“Wow! How can you say that, Bro. Kyle?” I am not being negative or pessimistic, I am telling you the hard truth. It should be obvious to us all. There is absolutely no way to sustain this nation given the coarse we have been put on. I fear that too much damage has already been done with things like the Stimulus, Obama Care, and so on. It can not be reversed.
This is what God has been trying to show us so that we can prepare as best we can. My advice to you: Get out of debt. Become more self-sufficient. Subscribe to Mother Earth News. Move families closer together and buy property that you can do something with in way of animals and/or produce. Start now learning to live on less.
No, I am not a “Green Freak”. This has nothing to with “Green” or the false notion of global warming or climate change or whatever they are calling it this week. It is basic, practical things that need to be done in each of our lives to prepare us for the coming days.
“Oh, Bro. Kyle, you are just crying out “the sky is falling”. Things will get better.”
Things may get better…for a time. The question is…
What does God have for you…just around the corner?
