5 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry. (Ezekiel 8:5 KJV)
25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. 26 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? 27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples? (John 9:25-27 KJV)
13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. (Genesis 3:13 KJV)
The time is almost here. As it is said…”the proof is in the pudding”. What I am talking about? I said I was not going to write on this subject again but I just can’t help it. It is about the installment of a new U.S. President. There have been much bickering and banter about the election and a lot of promises made. It have been so extensively covered in the news that I do not have to go over it again. Beating a “dead horse” won’t do any good. All that is left is to wait and see. Because of the way I am thinking, I hope I am wrong. Only God knows for sure.
In an old spiritual, God can fix it. There are a lot of things that need fixing today. The world is hurting. Everyone and every country is bickering and fighting. No one like the other nor does anyone want to compromise in any way, shape, or form least they are called soft. No one can or want to see what harm is being done. Most are blind to the feelings and/or suffering of others. Some only care about themselves and, because of greed, want more for themselves and others like themselves.
Things were said in a very hateful way but only deaf ears attuned. Hateful things were done and only blind eyes saw. Even more harmful things were promised to come and if only our mind could see. God can and I pray for his help. Or, am I jealous (afraid?) of something new? I believe I have my eyes and ears open and I’m just stubborn because I don’t want to go blindly down an unknown path. In a few days there is no choice but to go along. What power, at this point, have I? There will not be that much of an impact on me or people like me because I am retired. It will hurt the wallet a little but, in the long run, I will survive because I am not in the job market.
It is also written that you will receive what you sow. The Electoral College have spoken and, because we are a democracy we all must abide until the next election. In saying that, another thing must come into play. We must work together to make this work the way it suppose to work. God dislike deception or the contemplation of deceiving. I know politicians have been doing this since there were politicians and it will continue and I don’t foresee anything that will stop them.
All that is left is to wait and see. I am not blind and I am not deaf. I believe in God with all my heart and all my soul. He will protect me but, as I see it, we will all be tested and judged. There is no way around that. Be like Job and believe in God while being tested. God can and will.
