October 1, 2017

 

I don’t post on my blog as often as I should, but in light of what happened in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 1st 2017, I felt its time I said something.

First of all, my prayers and blessings go out to all those that were at the concert. What happened was horrific beyond words. I pray for those who lost their lives and their families and those who were wounded and still recovering. I also don’t want to forget those that may not have been physically wounded but were there, because they may not have been physically wounded, they were certainly mentally and emotionally wounded. Physical wounds heal quicker and easier than mental and emotional wounds, and that is not to play down that trauma of physical wounds.

There were many who stepped up to the plate and became heroes in what is being called this country’s worst mass attack in American history. Some of them died protecting someone else. That is a trauma that will haunt those survivors the rest of their lives.

AMERICA, it is time to wake up! It is time to take our heads out of the sand. We are living in serious times, and will get worse before it gets better. We need to stop living a self-centered life. Life is not about “ME”, it’s about all of us.

A couple of days after the attack, I was at the store and I heard “GOD” mentioned in the short time I was in there, than I’ve heard in maybe five years. Customers and store clerks were having no problem saying “Thank God” or I will be praying for you.”

Why does it take a major tragedy in order for people to openly recognize GOD? This is something we should be experiencing every day. Why is it that those of us who believe in GOD have to be silent in public, while everyone else has the right to voice their beliefs? It’s time we stand up for what we believe, forget this politically correct crap. Everyone has rights except us?

What we saw on October 1st is a small piece of the puzzle and is just the beginning. I’m not a conspiracy theorist nor am I a woman with an axe to grind. At the age of 73 I’ve ground all the axes I planned on grinding. In my life time I’ve seen and experienced many things, good and bad.

During this time I have learned to discern between truth and lies. One of the things I’ve learned is that our mainstream news people at the very least are giving us watered down information. One of the things that have come out, and may not be heard in mainstream media, is that there were more than one shooter. There are videos and clips to support that. Yet mainstream is treating it as though this man did all that damage by himself.

I believe deep down inside, that there was a much larger agenda involved than anyone wants to admit to. If you are one of those that were at the concert and are safe, Thank GOD! I was not there, so I’m safe. However, you and I may not be so blessed next time.

We need to look at what is going on around the world, and we must ask, “What is it all about?” There is a huge agenda at play here. It’s called “One World Government”. If you think that it would be a good thing, THINK AGAIN! One World Government is Communism on STEROIDS! Say goodbye to all your rights, what’s left of them, say goodbye to your privacy, what’s left of that.

In 1968 there was a British series called “The Prisoner” starring Patrick McGoohan. Some of you may be old enough to remember it. The story takes place on a mysterious coastal village. It seemed impossible to escape from there because the people’s every move and their every conversation was monitored.

We are headed in that direction right now. The technology is there and available and being used to some extent. If you think that all your personal information is safe, I know it’s not.

If the One World Government is allowed to become a reality, the scenario I mentioned about in The Prisoner series, will become a complete reality. NO RIGHTS! NO PRIVACY! Everything you do and say will be monitored. You will have no say in your life. I know it sounds like a Sci-Fi movie, I wish it was. This is a real possibility. As I said before, I may sound like a conspiracy theorist, but I’m not. I denied this for a long time, not wishing to accept what I was seeing and hearing. I can no longer ignore what keeps staring me in the face every day I am blessed to wake up.

I’m a student of the Word of GOD. When I study the Word, I find that all we are seeing and experiencing today is foretold in the scriptures. You can read it for yourself in the Bible, and I don’t mean the Catholic Bible.

For those of you who say you don’t believe in the Bible because it was written by man, or that man messed with it, I say Yes both are true. But then again man does mess things up almost every time he puts his hands on something. That’s not to say that man hasn’t done some great things, because he has, but he has destroyed a lot of things as well. However, let’s not throw out the baby with the bath water, as the saying goes. God truth is still in there and it’s up to us to glean GOD’s truth from everything else.

Those of you are stuck in “Religion”, I ask you to put aside your religion for a bit and go to GOD with an open heart and mind and pray asking Him to reveal Himself and His Truth to you. And pray expecting to hear from Him.

Those of you who may not really believe in GOD, I ask you to do the same. GOD is not a religion, He’s greater than all the religions in the world and He desires to have a personal relationship with you. What have you got to lose?

When people ask me what my religion is, my answer is simply; “I don’t have a religion, I have a personal relationship with my Heavenly Father and His Son, My Savior.”

In the scriptures, our Heavenly Father gave us principles to live our lives by. They are known to many as the 10 Commandments. Some of us have decided to accept some of them and disregard others as not pertaining to us. We cannot pick and choose what commandments we will accept and obey. We must accept all or none. They are not there for us to use as it fits our convenience or agendas.

We must return to our first LOVE… our Heavenly Father and His Son, our Savior.

There are those who will argue that GOD could have stopped what happened. And others will say that GOD was responsible for what happened. NO to both. He gave us free will to do the right thing or the wrong thing. He will NOT usurp our will. We must take responsibility for our own actions and decisions. The people responsible for that massacre made a conscience decision to kill those people. The devil didn’t make them do it and GOD didn’t make them do it. They made their own minds up to do what they did. I say THEY because until it is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was done by a lone gunman, I will continue to believe that there were more than one shooter.

October 1st 2017 was a wake-up call for America. We must stay vigilant, stay aware of our surroundings. Do we walk around in fear? No, but we must stay alert at all times, get our heads up from our cell phones and be aware what and who is around us, especially in public. If we see anything suspicious, don’t ignore it, alert someone. As I said earlier, we are living in dangerous times and it is going to get worse before it gets better. While we can’t foresee everything before it happens, we can keep ourselves prepared.

My love and blessings to all of you…
