notice to readers

Long around the time of this post, that looming question of what stories to believe went up a level, and as it did, the reality of the impact of deception on 'watchman' blogs took its place at the forefront of all.

In the time since I wrote those words (and a couple of longer posts, from which this has been culled), the question of that deception has seeped into several of the stories I have reblogged here...

And yes. The role of news reporters in preserving a status quo that is not always factual goes back a very long way, as much as does an alternative press that rails against it, at whatever cost: some degree there is that what is happening now has always been the way of things.

But something is happening now that chills.

I have been worrying over this post for well over a month now, unable to decide what to do about this blog. The blog will remain in public view, because it contains posts that are still being read. Too, I have posts that are mere tweaks away from publication—how long it will be before they are edited that final time and set in (if at all) is not known.

A long string of bookmarked files in various folders that still need to be posted, with or without commentary, yet squats in the laptop files.

Based on the Snowden revelations (whoever and whatever Snowden and his whistleblowing may one day prove to be), a native resistance/suspicion in me that vastly predates all has reared its head again. I eye Russia's changeover to the typewriters and typists of old keenly.

And remind, as I have at other posts/blogs: if it is important, be sure you have a hard copy.

And always be certain you keep a hard copy of the Holy Bible where it can be taken up in your hands at all times. (And written on your heart.)

In regard to the future of this blog, however, yes, I read things even now that need to be set in here—the call against their audacity is too strong to ignore. But that has been the reality since I began this blog: so very much out there needs to be handed on, and it is taken up from so many capable reporters: a single blog could scarcely hold the sum of them.

Readers familiar with the blog know that its set purpose has been participating in a bucket brigade that would help battle what, really, cannot be regained.

A coming end of the world was prophesied in Scripture, and that looming end has been the set purpose of this blog: that, in seeing the ancient prophesies come into our midst, those who are called to be the Master's own will recognize the hour, and not fall to a delusion that will overpower even the Elect, if such a thing were possible.

A very real dissonance remains for me between what I know will be 'comfortably' received herein and what should be posted but, for various reasons, I do not think could be accepted. I had thought that the narrative that 'news' presents would allow an easier entry point for much of what I have wanted to hand on (even the news I still borrow the term 'fantastical' to describe)...

But it has not. Whether it is finally a decision I am not so much aware of making (which is to say: a lack of courage) or merely that, in the lines we all draw in the sand, fantastical remains too edgy to set out as something with which I am willing to publicly be associated, the result is the same. I am not doing so much of what I intended when I began this blog...

And have been swept up into some places I should have expected, but did not.

A great many things prophesied as indicating the last hour are a portion of all eras in the long reach of man's march across the centuries.

It is those that are peculiar to our own hour that require notice.

Yet many others are noting them: transhumanism, animal-human hybrids, transgressions into our very DNA, extreme weather, the strange earth 'groans' of recent years (now returning), genetically modified foods, Fukushima's radiation leaks, animal die-offs, chemtrails, HAARP, the Middle East crises, loss of our Constitutional rights (as others have noted, America may figure in as the κατέχον of 2 Thess. 2:6, if not Babylon—or both), the strides scientific experiments are making into mind control—these are some of the many, many items that nudge the clock to that last second.

And a great many critical ones not listed therein.

Yet, even as this post will serve as notice that I am not going to be tending this blog as closely as I once had hoped, that call within me to set out audacities, as much as warning, remains. I cannot read many things without that clarion call to do the one thing demanded for all deeds of the darkness: bring them out into the light.

But I am having to measure a very real futility against the growing necessity to suspect that the extent to which we are being deceived is indeed accelerating—whether the death of Michael Hastings or who or what Edward Snowden is or what actually happened in the Trayvon Martin case or Benghazi or GMOs or any of ten thousand thousand other atrocities that loom and are looming...

To say nothing of what is happening in the Middle East, and Syria, and the questions, choices and incidents that are swirling about us and may shape the very future of the world.

And might, as many suspect, catapult us in a third World War.

That ready sense of not having done enough remains. Yet the reality that I have done something, likewise.

And that other question remains, too, unanswered: is it better to set out the horrors, in the hope that we who see these things will be reminded of the Gospel call, and will lift up our heads...

For our redemption draweth nigh.

Or would it be better to find another way of evangelizing.

Is it better to highlight the bad—bring it out into the light so that its deeds are not hidden...

Or to concentrate on the Gospel message of redemption itself.

The ancient cry of the watchman remains, if you see these things, and do not warn the people, their blood is on your head. But when time is as limited as my own has strangely become, impact has to count. While some posts herein continue to be read, even now, other bloggers and alternative news sites have sufficient impact to offset what little I can accomplish here at the present moment, and a higher readership.

Too, their commentary says far more than I have said here.

In the meanwhile, I will perhaps more often than not creep into that quiet place of the Virgin, who pondered things in her heart, rather than speaking them...

I encourage all who may have read posts here to stay wary of what is afoot now, and keep the alternative press in your daily reads. A time may yet come when we no longer have the advantage of their reporting...
