One of the interesting things about having access to the internet is that you can see more than what comes up on the News. For the News here comes from three sources: Fairfax papers, the State, and a couple of independent papers. The independent papers get their news from press releases and local reporters.
The locals survive because they report on the important industries — in my town the university and hospital system — faster than the managers do, but at times inaccurately. However, they are better than the local Facebook groups, which are even further to the left than the state mainstream media, which celebrates every chance they get the post modern progression into evil that our society has.
In the meantime I see the casualties. And the consequences: there is nothing good in them.
However, we should not be led into despair. The consequence of choosing evil is that you are made stupid, you listen to those who preach lies, and your children do not survive. Another takes your place, and you are not part of the redistribution of the good land in which your fathers and grandfathers are buried.
Micah was preaching hard words and a warning. He knew that the evil tyrants of his age would select a new people for the mountains of Israel if Israel turned from God, and God let them be imperial subjects, converged, and part of the grey mass of the Assyrian Empire.
Woe to those who devise wickedness
and work evil on their beds!
When the morning dawns, they perform it,
because it is in the power of their hand.
They covet fields and seize them,
and houses, and take them away;
they oppress a man and his house,
a man and his inheritance.
Therefore thus says the Lord:
behold, against this family I am devising disaster,[a]
from which you cannot remove your necks,
and you shall not walk haughtily,
for it will be a time of disaster.
In that day they shall take up a taunt song against you
and moan bitterly,
and say, “We are utterly ruined;
he changes the portion of my people;
how he removes it from me!
To an apostate he allots our fields.”
Therefore you will have none to cast the line by lot
in the assembly of the Lord.
“Do not preach”—thus they preach—
“one should not preach of such things;
disgrace will not overtake us.”
Should this be said, O house of Jacob?
Has the Lord grown impatient?[b]
Are these his deeds?
Do not my words do good
to him who walks uprightly?
But lately my people have risen up as an enemy;
you strip the rich robe from those who pass by trustingly
with no thought of war.[c]
The women of my people you drive out
from their delightful houses;
from their young children you take away
my splendor forever.
Arise and go,
for this is no place to rest,
because of uncleanness that destroys
with a grievous destruction.
If a man should go about and utter wind and lies,
saying, “I will preach to you of wine and strong drink,”
he would be the preacher for this people!
I will surely assemble all of you, O Jacob;
I will gather the remnant of Israel;
I will set them together
like sheep in a fold,
like a flock in its pasture,
a noisy multitude of men.
He who opens the breach goes up before them;
they break through and pass the gate,
going out by it.
Their king passes on before them,
the Lord at their head.
I often say we should not be like them. So what are they doing? Micah suggests, firstly, that they are driving for profit and power by any means necessary. The destruction of homes, enslaving of children, robbery and corruption of others is just part of doing business. The gangsters of Chicago did less damage, for they fought among themselves, than the current social justice warriors who want to regulate all things at all times, and will destroy whomever gets in their way.
To the point of engineering the election of a new people, by importing immigrants who hate the West and Christ just as much as they do.
The second is that they want us silenced. I have had considerable difficulties with getting blog posts up in the last few days, and –apart from the issues WordPress is having with sites that link from each other (I have had to adjust the structure of this place into two massive blogs: I had the previous four blog structure running for about five years) there has been multiple bots crawling all over here, from facebook and google.
If you cannot silence, shut down the blog. It is not merely hackers who DDOS.
Or move other places well down the search stream for that place.
They only want those who will preach drunkenness, dissipation, and degeneration to have a voice.
May this never be so.. May we instead be Godly, and may our inheritance go for many generations. May our nations (and I accept that the USA is many nations) stand strong. May be be all we were created to be.
But it means that we must shun those who devise evil.
- It appears that the gangsters and politicians are intertwined in Chicago: I have linked to this.
- SpaceX is not evil: the pictures were very good, so I used them . Adding a local rocket Lab tweet… because Rockets.
