God is breaking a sweat. It's the bottom of the seventh and He's trailing badly.
The last couple of innings (centuries) have been disastrous. Satan has hit one home run after another.
The game is Good vs. Evil, the only game in town. God represents an inexorable force for Good. Satan represents evil. The prize is the human race.
God's team is totally outnumbered. Everyone prefers Satan's team. It's synonymous with "success."
God's recruiting pitch has been, "Seek me and only me. I am Enlightenment: Love, Truth and Bliss. I am what you really want."
Satan has replied, "Enlightenment and bliss are kind of vague. I'll offer money, sex, power and fame. That's real."
People are flocking to Satan. They are like a dog that has a bone. God is saying, "If you can let go of the bone, you'll be rewarded with a steak, i.e. enlightenment. "
But the dog says, " I can't imagine this steak. I can't let go. I'm addicted. I'll just accumulate bones."
For a lot of us these days, gold is money! Many people are obsessed with it, even those on God's team.
"Where your treasure is, there will be your heart also." (Matt 6:21)
What is gold? A stone. But millions of people put their faith in the golden calf. They worship it.
It's like the game "Paper, Rock, Scissors." One day everyone wants rock. Rock trumps paper. The next day paper trumps rock. (How scissors fit, I don't know.)
Very few of us find security where ultimately it lies: in God and in serving God.
We are possessed, collectively and individually by Satan's lures.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
People ask me, "what can I do to fight the New World Order?"
Seek Enlightenment (God) first. Then you will know what to do.
Most of us are unable to save ourselves. How are we going to save the world?
I'm not enlightened but I imagine enlightenment involves self-purification, overcoming the demons greed and sex. It involves praying for direction, and following our highest impulses.
Essentially it means leading a dedicated life. The New World Order is a battle for souls that takes place in each of us. Joining God's team is spitting in their eye. They hate that. Manifesting our divinity is a real game winner.
The Illuminati is a hydra-headed monster. I am not in favor of quietism. [Definition: "Calm acceptance of things as they are, without attempting to resist or change them."]
Choose the battle closest to your heart. It might be resisting attempts to restrict gardening or nutritional supplements. It might be 9-11 Truth or the dumbing down of schools or pornography on TV. Choose your position on God's team.
KEEPING YOUR EYE ON THE BALL
But don't let the fight harden or narrow you. "Be ye therefore perfect as your father in heaven is perfect." (Matt 5:48)
Imagine a little angel and devil on each shoulder. God speaks to us all through our conscience.
Often the angel's voice goes silent. All we can hear is the little devils. We call them "bad habits," and they become our "friends".
Life is more interesting if we identify these demons and fight them. Life is dull if we forget it is a battle to perfect our thoughts and deeds.
Buddha said: "The man who conquers himself is indeed the greatest of conquerors."
Religion is not what we believe. It's what we do. I am the biggest hypocrite since my progress has been limited. I talk the talk. Others walk the walk.
We live in a moral dimension. God is omnipotent. We are corrupt and weak. He may lose the battle for the human race but that's a small skirmish. God rules the universe.
The human race is the loser in this skirmish. It will reap what Satan has sowed. But why should we despair when we are on God's team?
One of Satan's BEST techniques is to portray his team as God's team. Then we fight another group that also thinks it is fighting for God.
In most wars, Satan's disciples are pulling the strings on both sides. This is how Satan enslaves and destroys us. It's important to recognize that Satan is the only enemy. Humanity could unite if we recognized this common threat.
If enough of us join God's team, we can make a difference. Increasingly people will be looking for the truth. Maybe we can win one for the Gipper!
At least we can save our own souls and bear witness. We were not all Gadarene swine.
