The Voices of Reason

We shall overcome.

"What we need is not division; what we need is not hatred, but love and compassion toward one another and a feeling of justice toward those who suffer within our community, whatever their color or faith. Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world." 
-- Robert F. Kennedy

I keep listening, but find I am unable to hear the voices of reason. During that era where many marched for civil rights and social justice, it seemed they spoke out for those who were unable to speak for themselves. Today people only speak on their own behalf, to further their own agenda. 

As we watch the Presidential election unfold in sordid politics, as we endure the storm of our climatic change, as we hear of wars and rumors of wars and nations rise against nations - I find myself searching for just one voice of reason. 

In America we have the unprecedented possibility to allow the voice of the people to rise above all others in a resounding shout - one of unity and brotherhood, one of freedom and justice for all. Instead, we see the divide-between rich and poor, white and black, Christian and Muslim - growing... a gulf between us widens, as we allow ourselves to be conquered by ignorance and hate. 

My fellow Americans, 
My fellow citizens of the world,
Deep in my heart, I do believe, we SHALL overcome someday - we shall ALL BE FREE.
We must, however, STAND TOGETHER. 
We can not let the power elite, the 1%, the forces that enslave, to steal from us this world. 
Fear not, our Lord is with us. He will strengthen us. 
He will uphold us with His righteous right hand.

Let us serve each other; in our communities, our brothers and sisters - 
no matter, race, creed or religion.

Fear Not

Terror got ya? Gripped with anxiety, or do you have a prescription for that?


I drove by a serious accident involving a vehicle and a telephone pole yesterday. Watched a woman screaming in pain being loaded in to an ambulance. First responders deal with these situations daily, and I am filled with gratitude and have the utmost respect for those who serve their fellow man in their most desperate times of need. "There is no greater love than this, that a man would lay down his own life for that of his friends." John 15:13. I am grateful for those who run towards danger, instead of from it - so thankful for the watchmen on the wall. We are called to care for one another, are you able and willing to answer that call?

What a world, what a world. Who needs scary stories, when you have the horrors of life, am I right??? North Korea and Iran unleashing their nukes, kids killing kids and everybody just going about their business, pausing only to pray that the "government" will solve all their problems. YIKES, people, we have got to get back to basics here.

My Fellow Americans and Citizens of the world I am here to tell you that you live in what may be the most exciting time in recorded human history. You were chosen to be here NOW, and while things may look bleak or overwhelming, please stop and consider - you were born for a time such as this.

Before our very eyes we watch as Orwell, Phillip K. Dick, Asimov, Huxley and H.G. Wells have become prophets. We also watch as words, recorded 2000 years ago by an itinerant preacher and roughneck carpenter from Nazareth come to pass.

The following is a list of things, that I do not fear, but that I watch with growing apprehension;

  • Climate Change, Unprecedented Weather
  • Mass Animal Deaths (Revelation 8:9)
  • Wars and rumors of wars (Matthew 24:7)
  • GOVERNANCE BY DATA/Loss of Civil Liberties
  • The Internet of Things (Daniel 12:4)
  • RFID Chip, don't stand in line for it people. (Revelation 13:16-17)

The following videos are compilations of news footage from around the world, 
I think it is important to SEEK FOR YOURSELF. 
Look at was is going on in the world, and know YOU have a job to do. 
There is a bigger picture and YOU are part of it.

We live in incredible times.
Times that call for discernment, eyes wide open and no fear. Do not be deceived.
May God bless you and keep you, may He turn His face to shine upon you and give you His peace.
