When the news shakes me

I’ve been away from my post for a while, my friends. I will not apologize, though. I have been studying and growing in my spirituality. Writing a blog was not where my mind was. Now, however, I have been prodded to discuss a topic into which I have never entered before. Some may think I’m becoming political with this entry. Others may think I have become a bible-thumper.

Think what you may about me, but the truth is I am being guided by my teachers-in-spirit. The dragonfly has moved on, but he left me in good hands. The guides who lead me are loving and powerful. And they are emphatic. They call me the Writer and I must write.

I’ve been led to read the Bible, specifically The Revelation of Jesus Christ, the last book in the Christian Bible. It is said to have been written by the apostle John from communications with Jesus. One thing I had not realized until recently. Revelation 22:18-20 is a warning that continues to be heeded,

“I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.”

Some people say that book is talking about the writer’s past, about how his world ended. Some people say it’s just a book of metaphors. Some people say it’s a book of fiction. As a researcher and a reader, I know that we can learn a lot from books, whether fiction or fact.

In George Orwell’s “1984,” the world is in a perpetual war where the enemies change yet seem to stay the same. It is a world of intrusive government surveillance and public manipulation dictated by a political system controlled by a privileged elite class.

In Suzanne Collins’ “The Hunger Games,” a dystopian world set in the country of Panem, the wealthy capital controls twelve districts in varying degrees of poverty. Every year, chosen children must participate in a televised death match similar to the TV show “Survivor” on steroids and to the death.

Then there’s Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World,” a book I read in 8th grade, but I wonder if it’s still being taught.

According to the Wikipedia article on the novel,

“The World State is a benevolent dictatorship headed by ten World Controllers. In this respect it is similar to the societies imagined by Huxley’s near-contemporaries H. G. Wells and Olaf Stapledon. The World State has established a stable global society where the population is permanently limited. The basis of that stability is the conditioning of citizens to accept their station in life. This is achieved by:

  • Abolition of natural reproduction. Human embryos are raised artificially in “hatcheries and conditioning centres”. The breeding and development of children predestine them to fit into one of five ranked castes with Greek letter names, from Alpha (the highest) to Epsilon (the lowest) which fulfill different economic roles. Alpha and Beta fetuses are allowed to develop relatively naturally, but Gamma, Delta and Epsilon fetuses are subjected to chemical interference to stunt their intelligence and physical growth. Members of lower castes (but not Alphas and Betas) are created using ‘Bokanovsky’s Process‘ which allows up to 96 clones to be produced from one fertilized ovum.

  • Educating children by the hypnopaedic process, which provides each with appropriate subconscious messages to mold the child’s self-image appropriate to their caste.

  • Discouragement of critical thinking. The lower castes are bred for low intelligence and conditioned not to think; in the upper castes, this is achieved by conditioning and social taboos. “High” culture has ceased to exist; serious literature is banned as subversive, as is scientific thinking and experimentation. The only cultural element mentioned, movies with added tactile sensations, deal in pure emotion.”

Then yesterday, I saw this about the Bill Gates’ Foundation, Bill Gates Foundation. They have developed a birth control chip that is meant to be imbedded in the body and can be remotely switched on and off.

It got me thinking back to the Mark of the Beast in Revelation and how our current reality seems to be mimicking the prophecy.

Maybe you think I’m being superstitious or a conspiracy theorist, but as a writer, I know that when we think of the worst that can happen, it is actually a possibility. This theory I am considering now has been building in me.

What if ….

So I will refuse the RFID chip being proposed by the government, regardless of the government’s threats. I am a citizen of the Kingdom of God, and I will not be budged.

Please understand, I love the Bible because I find truth in it and because I have been guided to it by forces greater than me. I am not judgmental, as any who know me can attest. I am loving and understanding. I am not one of those who protests the freedoms of others. We are all brothers and sisters in this world in which we have been born, and I love you all as  I love my God Source.

Peace to you, my friends, and may those with eyes to see and ears to hear use these senses to see and hear with their own discretion.
