You know what?I’m
want-to-sit-on-a-beach-for-a-week-and-stare-at-the- ocean, kind of tired.Tired of this Presidential election.Tired of the talking heads yammering away
about how wonderful their favorite candidate is, while disparaging the opponent.
Tired of the same old bovine intestinal squeeze, oozing out of the TV screen
I’m tired of reality shows, featuring people with
questionable I.Q.’s who think nothing of allowing a camera crew into their
bathroom to document them as they paint their toenails and gossip about their
sister’s newest sexual partner. Or programs with folks who self-importantly
impart useless, non-existent strategy for buying overcrowded, abandoned storage
units, filled with someone else’s old, dirty clothes and cast off, obsolete
electronics, while bidding up their competition just to be a jerk.
Like the 4 year old little girl on that YouTube video, who
broke down in tears after listening to coverage of election news on the car
radio one too many times, I’m also sick of hearing about “Bronco Bama and Mitt
Romney.”When her mother assured her the
election was going to be over very soon, she sniffed loudly and choked out a
brave, “Okay” as a final little tear ran down her chubby cheek.
Me too, kid.I feel
your pain.No more yard signs or bumper
stickers.Nix the TV interviews and 90
minute debates, please.Spare me the
endless commentary with the usual side of analysis paralysis.I’m over it.I’m just over it.Although I pray
for God’s will to be done regarding who wins the White House, and hope His will
includes replacing the current, unqualified occupant, I’m stunned when I see
how many people are pinning all their hopes and dreams on a new face who speaks
Seriously, people? You really think the challenger has the
ability to return America to the lofty world status she once held?Do you honestly believe this man, who is
simply another Globalist puppet, anointed by The Powers That Be to further
their agenda, really WANTS to ‘fix’ this country?Hey, I have some beachfront property in Iowa
I’d love for you to take a look at!
Oh, how I wish I could believe the inspiring, patriotic
speeches, full of promises to heal the economy, reinstate Constitutional
freedoms and undo the barrage of destruction wreaked on our Republic by our
treasonous, murderer-in-chief!My eyes
fill with tears when I watch this man, who appears SO Presidential, speaking
with such eloquence without depending on the training wheels of a teleprompter,
and I long to take him at his word, but I simply can’t.
It’s not that I’m jaded or cynical.Honestly.I’m realistic, and I hate that.I’d rather be able to bury my head in the hopeful sand of la-la land,
but too much water has gone under the bridge, and too many buildings have been
blown up.Too many people have been
murdered and too many bald faced lies have been told for me to believe anything
coming out of the cess-pool of Washington D.C. anymore.
I bet I’d feel an overwhelming compulsion to douse my car
with Clorox if I had occasion to drive around that city.Ideological raw sewage percolates within the
halls of the Capitol Building, seeping into every computer and closed door
meeting of our elected officials.They
arrange their on camera moments, standing before dozens of microphones,
spitting and flinging that sewage on the American people, expecting us to
happily accept being defecated on and beg them for more.
Nah, I’ve had quite enough, thank you very much.I’m stuffed and couldn’t hold another
drop.Like I said, I’m tired.
Today, as I drove by a billboard advertising some high-end,
expensive men’s watch, that pretty much looked and functions the same as any
other timepiece, a wave of commercial weariness washed over me.I kept driving, passing one elegant shop
after another and spotted the first dreaded Christmas wreath of the season,
hanging on one of the doors.
It’s not even close to Thanksgiving, yet the retailers are
beginning to gear up for their annualcluster-fest orgy of Yule Tide cheer.They desperately need to recoup losses incurred during the past year of
tough economic times in the hopes of breaking even and, if Santa smiles on
them, possibly even make a tiny profit for all their hard labor.*sigh*
I’m tired of hearing about the 47 million people on food
stamps.I’m tired of hearing
manipulated, inaccurate unemployment statistics, as well as other economic
indicators and stock market fluctuations that are full of spin, depending on
who is doing the reporting.‘The economy
is improving.’‘We are still in a full
blown recession.’‘There’s hope just
around the corner.’‘Presently, there is
no sign of a recovery any time soon.’
I’m fed up with hearing about Islamists in the Middle East
who dream of little more than murdering infidels.I’m outraged when I think of every, single
husband, wife, sister, brother, son and daughter, embroiled in an unwinnable
war in foreign lands, who are supposedly trying to give the gift of democracy
to people whose entire ideology runs counter to that kind of freedom.
I’m weary of hearing about our troops who, in exchange for the
sacrifice they give in blood, sweat, tears and separation from family and
friends, are being shot in the back by the ignorant, illiterate cowards they’re
trying to help, while American taxpayers continue shelling out more and more
money towards the supposed ‘freedom’ of people who just want us to go away. I don’t want one more American life to be
sacrificed in the Middle East.
They don’t want us there.They didn’t ask us to ‘liberate’ them or overthrow their leaders, and
they would probably leave us alone if we left their ‘holy’ lands, came home and
minded our own darn business. Enough is enough, already.I have every idea they would warm up to the
‘Great Satan’ pretty quickly if the ‘Great Satan’ was energy independent and
didn’t need their precious oil anymore.
I’m tired of our government’s deceitful backdoor, covert
politics, with all the wheeling and dealing by arrogant, despotic, greedy,
imperialistic so called leaders who mindlessly carry out policies mapped out
generations ago by those whose sole aim was, and is, to rule the world.Everybody wants to rule this broken down,
sick, decaying world.Well, ya’ll can
I’m tired of the mainstream media that spends its time and
money pumping out asinine, outrageous, biased rhetoric rather than reporting
accurate news. It’s not even a game anymore; their lies have become so obvious
and outlandish that we can all see that Emperor Media has no clothes on.
The misinformation spewed forth every day and night from the
newspapers, online news sources, magazines, radio and television, serves to
prove they assume their audience are complete imbeciles.The nerve, the gall, the audacity, the
strength-sapping assault leveled against the intelligence of the American
public by the media, is obscene.
They need to be boycotted for about 3 months. Maybe during
that audience imposed time-out, they would be able to figure out how to tell
the truth again, and perhaps even rediscover their integrity.HAHAHAHAHA!Nah, forget it.That’ll never
I guess the thing that tires me the most is the apathy and
self-absorption of my fellow human beings, especially here in America.It’s everywhere I turn, but the most
egregious practice of Stepford-Wife brain death, is occurring in the
church.What is WRONG with you
people??Seriously!I don’t get it!
NO ONE who has written me in the past year has reported that
their pastor or Sunday School teacher talks about the imminence of the rapture
of the church!No one in any church body
that’s been described to me is even discussing how current events line up with
the signs of the end of the age, as outlined in Scripture!No one!
This renders me speechless.Well, almost.It makes me
furious, actually.Hey pastoral
shepherds, where are you?God has
blessed you with the opportunity to lead and guide your flock safely into His
Kingdom and what are you doing?You’re
caught up in building your congregations with seekers and tithers who can
support your huge, fancy new sanctuaries, that’s what.
SHAME ON YOU!
When is the last time you told those in your care about sin,
repentance and the cleansing blood of Jesus, shed on that Roman cross?When is the last time you offered an
invitation for the lost to come to the front of the church so one of your
deacons could minister to, and lead them to the grace of salvation?Humph.I thought so.
You bunch of lazy Laodiceans!Jesus, (remember him?) said in Revelation 3: 15-17, “I know thy works,
that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.So then because thou art lukewarm, and
neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I
am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not
that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked”
“Welcome to First Baptist Country Club Church. We’re so glad
you decided to join us this morning!Before we get started singing our annoying, meaningless choruses, let me
make a few announcements.Next Tuesday
night, in the Schmoozy New Life Center across the street, a combination baby
and wedding shower will be held for Tammy Sue Dingbat; everyone is invited to
attend and be sure to bring a covered dish. Next, don’t forget that we’ll be receiving a
special offering in tonight’s service that will go towards installation of a
big, new fountain in our lobby. In case you don’t remember, it features an
empty throne, surrounded by 12 angels, each holding a disciple who spit out lukewarm
water into the main pool. It’s gonna be just gorgeous, folks!And all for the glory of God!”
THIS is the type of thing most churches are concentrating on
these days. Well PUKE!Pastors, you have
a sacred responsibility towards your congregations, and you are failing
them.Failing, as in getting an ‘F’ on
your heavenly report card!You’d better
wake up from your dreamy, emergent existence and start telling your flock the
truth about what is happening in the world.
If you don’t warn them that every, single sign and prophecy
concerning the rapture of the church has taken place and we are ready for
takeoff, who will?You think they’ll stop
sipping their Starbucks long enough to concern themselves with this?One of the ladies in your congregation
mentioned the word, “prophecy” to another member and was asked, “What is
that?Is that like speaking in tongues?”
Listen up! The weight and responsibility of making sure your
people are well aware of the lateness of the hour is on you.They need to understand that their hearts
must be found worthy to escape the wrath to come, but how can they be ready
when they don’t even know what the rapture and Tribulation is??Right now, they think the ‘antichrist’ was
some movie character named Damien!
Now, I realize you may not have been taught these things in
seminary.That’s completely outrageous,
and I would demand a full refund of my tuition if I were you because Jesus spoke
of the end times frequently, and it would behoove the schools to include that
in their curriculum.However, there are
many excellent resources in the Christian bookstores that can assist you and
bring you up to speed on this critical subject.
Concentrate on authors like Hal Lindsey, John Ankerberg,
David Jeremiah, and others associated with them.Wake up, you shepherds! Make sure your little
flock is ready to go when that trumpet blows, and we are snatched up to meet
the Lord in the air.You’d better get
busy because the way things are looking, it won’t be much longer before we go
If I could, I’d do the work for you, but I am just too
