Thank you for this great effort on your part Scarlett!
When I made my initial comment here I was very busy and tired but could tell that I needed and wanted to come back with something vitally important to say to this provocative poignant message of yours and the question you posed here! Thankfully God’s Holy Spirit was so kind to me to bring the dots into focus connecting them with His loving care!
I woke only after sleeping a few hours this morning and found immediately the first message in my Word Press cue a long comment to one of my last blog posts yesterday, which I felt a definite response to it building in me. I actually saw after completing that comment of mine that it fit to a great degree here too, as to being exactly along the lines of what I wanted to say to your fine blog posting! So I hope my adding it here in its entirety will bring some added Truth and God’s loving message to you and all who are interested in reading this!
All very informative and insightful in focusing on the Truth which is our friend always and we must make a friend of Truth no matter how bitter a pill to swallow at times, because without Truth we fall into living a lie or being on a fool’s errand! This is what we saw with the George Floyd insanity across the Nation during the summer of 2020 obviously when masses of people were functioning as a physical arm of Satan on earth doing his bidding and not God’s for there was absolutely no just cause in any of that violence and we saw distinctly how the Whole Dem party fanned the flames and didn’t care how much destruction or death occurred and those are our leaders promulgating this evil along with also the Republicans standing by for the most part doing nothing about it; Mitch McConnell to me just a minion of Satan and dirty filthy crony gluttonous Ways of the World politician so they too in concert were helping the Devil! The response to quell all of that madness would have been send in the US Marines and Army and basically a Civil War would be underway so is that why basically nothing was done or is it just a forestalling of the inevitable which is coming anyway!
This jumped out in what you say here, “According to Weber, the attitude seeped into non-Calvinist society, and we’ve probably now got to look much further to see why the ultra-wealthy feel justified in not caring about anyone else.” That is the point why aren’t enough human beings caring enough or at all to stop the cancer that has metastasized and is not working its tentacles into every facet of our civilization like even here a freaking schools systems are pushing CRT down the throats of all public school children and their parents under threat of the FBI coming to your meetings or home and taking you away as a freaking terrorist! This is totally unconscionable in a Free Christian Society Sir! Therefore we are not in such anymore this is at least an oligarchy or at worst a slow bake full-fledged dictatorship and what many would see as more akin to Communism which may very well be the case! The Communist Chinese have been buying up anything and everything they can in America for decades now and is that because they love America and Americana? We know the answer to that question and who it serves and it definitely is not American Citizens or Christian values and the fundamental principles by which this Nation or Republic was created in the first place! So more than the writing should be on the wall for anyone with a half of a clue as to where this is headed! All the stops have been pulled out and not only are the current agendas Communist they are definitely Satanic!
Now this is another comment that jumps out to me because I see what is happening and what is motivating people to respond or not to their world around them in the most appropriate manner which yes used to be actually getting on their knees and praying to God Almighty as you said in order to have happen these words from Holy Scripture! The Bible says “that where two or three are gathered, God is in their midst.” But I was just saying the thing that jumps out to me that triggered an underlying issue or reality here is this; “It also says to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”
That is of course a scriptural passage I’ve quoted numerous times in my writings on Word Press; “11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12Therefore, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now even more in my absence; continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling. 13For it is God who works in you to will and to act on behalf of His good purpose.” Philippians 2:11-13
The reason this truly jumps out is because as I see it the underlying issue of why are things consistently going from bad to worse in human behavior in for example the whole monstrosity of abortion from a horrendous evil to being an outright license to murder innocent helpless human babies even full term now estimated that 1.7 Billion worldwide with 63 Million in the US; innocent human lives have been snuffed out while in California actual mad dog killers have been allowed to walk; and this society or civilization hasn’t freaked out and said no way, we are out of control and must stop this evil now! They are being ruled by this secular world and its king Satan, that is the only explanation and I tell you we have been and are on the precipice to Hell! I was always the eternal optimist most of my life from boyhood but now even though that core essence of my soul is there its mostly withdrawn from an ugly evil world that most people are OK with, because they go along to get along, but, they sure didn’t when George Floyd a minion of Satan was dead! This is a sickening world and I’m still an optimist but much sadder than I’ve ever been as I see still good happening each day, but, the ugly evil sin is so in our faces that I do hate this world now, it is just too horrible to me and I want God to return and end this, and, sadly even though the good will be with it I see God as totally omnipotent having the ability to sort out all the good things and withdraw them all to heaven even the beauty of a flower to extract all the absolute good and reanimate or perfect them all in heaven as part of His glory, but, to then banish all corruption and evil to hell which is something I want more than anything, even my own life; I pray to God for this to come!
That Philippians 2:11-13 really hit home for me because in the story of Emily Rose the young lady who was demonically possessed a great vital message was passed on to the human race which was and is that demonic evil is infesting the world more than ever in these modern times and has consistently ramped up for the past century to where we are now with I believe more demonically possessed or influences people than ever before that won’t end well, which we already know from prophecy, and it’s all spelled out even saying in the End Time people will actually welcome death over the living in this world as it will be that ugly and Satanic, we see what the evil cohort of hell Pelosi with the equally diabolical evil Bergoglio has just signaled to the world and what they promote which is in the works; the full-fledged establishing of Satan’s church on earth now! This is what I want for stupid and the wicked or spiritually lost people to wake up to fast, but, will that happen? Only if God provides a cataclysmic event that would scare and shock the hell out of anyone, to then make them want to get down on their knees and beg His forgiveness thereby spreading the power of prayer and God’s Holy Spirit upon the entire human race as was the reason the story of Emily Rose, Anneliese Michel the actual German woman upon which the story is based who was supposedly truly possessed with 6 demons, but, the priest and parents were prosecuted for murder! I think that was wrong, at least from my limited capability of knowing all the Truth, but, I sense it was for real and the key here is Anneliese did want for her epitaph Philippians 2:11-13 which to me is where the whole human race stands right now; things are such a mess we should all be “trembling in fear” and begging God to please help us; for Him to keep us and protect us from all evil, so we can be saved from eternal damnation which will happen to many people or souls who will be lost for eternity, and that is my warning to all reading here; that they wake up fast, very fast! Amen.
The most important words here over anything I said and all the others you placed here are these!
“23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”
“Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.”
“St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.”
God bless you.
