The Sirens Song & Smoke Signals – The Sirens sang songs to sea travelers to lure them to their deaths. Their songs were enchanting & would make sailors forget their sense of direction.
Yesterday I was drawn to this person’s Facebook. It has come to my attention that many of you have befriended him &/or follow him. I will keep him anonymous but I will speak for instruction. As I read his post & all of his comments I was immediately entranced. He said ALL THE RIGHT THINGS. He went a step farther & even touched on sensitive subjects w/no regard of what the people might think. I admire this quality in a person bc it is rare to speak your mind & to do so eloquently. I think of scripture:
But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. – 2 Corinthians 10:17
He boasted & glorified our Lord, & he does it well. So well that many of his posts have so many likes & shares that Facebook had to add the letter ‘K’, 1.2K Likes, 556 Shares & so on. Almost all of his posts were like this. Though I was entranced my Spirit said ‘keep looking’ bc something didn’t feel right. So I did & the further down I went on his page, I became even more & more entranced bc he is 1 tough cookie unafraid to speak his mind, & he did it well. I found no fault in this man (not that I was looking), but I must insist…’Spirit, you’re wrong on this 1.’
Then it struck me, after a while of scrolling & reading (I spent awhile trying to prove to my Gut, aka The Spirit, that he was wrong) I realized something & suddenly EVERYTHING became clearer from black & white to Technicolor. Everything hidden was no longer hidden; 1 thing avalanched to many other observations. It wasn’t what he said; it’s what he wasn’t saying. Not 1 post suggested or otherwise implied the time we are living in. Not 1 post brought attention or raised awareness to the coming calamity.
At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. – Matthew 11:25
Could it be I thought, that He who searches our hearts (Jeremiah 17:10) has hid these things from this man? Just in this man’s area alone, I saw that it recently was rocked by earthquakes, men struck by lightning, on emergency drought watch, contaminated water supply & 1000s of people w/out drinking water & hospitalized subsequent the contamination, record snowfall & temperature, & 10s of 1000s w/out power after rolling power outages. Not 1 occurrence was ordinary either, but unusual, every single 1 of them. [https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+16%3A1-4&version=JUB]
I decided not to question why God has hid these things that are in PLAIN SIGHT from this man; far be it for me to question it; on the job I learned to keep my opinions to myself, I was however employed to give objective observations.
Here is my objective observation: you may not like what I have to say, I mean who would, given the message that I am relaying, but I say it for your sakes. No 1 likes a party crasher but I tell you that you would rather I crash your party over the One who sent me to you, to crash your party. I’m afraid we aren’t ready. The church especially, you should raise awareness & snap out of whatever normalcy bias you’re stuck in.
You are held at a higher standard those of you who say you are Christian though your actions testify against you! I see your lips moving but you worship in vain since you seek the praise of men over your God. I can read your words just fine detailing how God’s praise is more important. What you say is Christ comes 1st, Christ is #1, Christ is the here all & be all & to those that don’t like it, tough luck. I can read these words just fine; but why has God hid these things from you? SNAP OUT OF IT & SEEK HIM earnestly.
I hear that Facebook is coming out w/an “unlike” button…I am sure I will have more unlikes than I do likes; but I don’t care, I’d love meet the valiant snipers among you. The lots of you are really not going to like me though I have good intentions. According to scripture, you hate & kill me; make merry & send gifts to 1 another. I wonder if this is why I am battle hardened.
I took the liberty of providing a WIKI of a parable. Why did our Lord speak in parables?
The Purpose of Jesus’ Parables Matthew 13:10-16 (Mark 4:10-12)
10And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 12For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. 13Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. 17For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
But I am cheating in hopes to intercede for you so that you understand just a little more before you’re caught unaware. Also, I give you a WIKI source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parable_of_the_Ten_Virgins
Don’t forget your sense of direction & trust your gut always. Stay the course, fight the good fight, & finish this race. This house is burning; don’t get locked inside of it. Don’t you see or smell the smoke?
Are you going to tell me how much God loves you bc you post pretty scripture detailing His endless love for you? Or you going to act on these smoke signals Christ is giving you & take measures. You don’t read smoke signals bc you’re not Navajo Indian? No Problem, I can INTERPRET THEM FOR YOU.
Jump out while the jumping is good, but not w/out your friend(s) — be a hero to someone. If they refuse, to their own peril then. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqWRaAF6_WY]
And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. – Daniel 11:33
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith – 2 Timothy 4:7
