Another thing to be realistic about, is that I love my blog Today While The Sun Shines, it being the first ever blog I started writing. It has been a great place for me to learn and grow, not only in preparedness, but in my writing and blogging hobby as well. It has spread far and wide and has been read in many places in the world, and I can't just quit and ignore her. Chuckles here. So I need to keep writing on Today, about what is happening Today!
But let's get realistic about what is going on in the world, for just a minute here okay? Do you watch the news? I know it is kind of depressing watching it, but perhaps next time you watch it, look at it with eyes to see the signs of the times. Watch it with the attitude of watching for those signs, you know the ones that tell us what is to shortly come to pass.
Only a few short years ago, I used to like to sit down every few months and look back and make a list of all the crazy things that were going on in the world, and I could actually do it. Now, being realistic there is so much chaos and destruction, and war, and everything going on, I would have to do it on a daily basis, just to try and keep up with what is happening, and there is just no possible way I would be able to do it.
Every day we hear of wars, natural disasters, terrorism, disease, civil unrest, economic collapse, famine, wonders in the sky, and everywhere in the world, you name it, you will hear about it. Without a doubt if you can think of it, you will likely hear about it happening that day, either on the news, or by a google search that would show you. Without a doubt, we are seriously a world that is in chaos, a world that has reached a tipping point, a world that has ripened. That's realistic.
Yet, still there are those whom I talk to who seem to want to turn a blind eye to it all and pretend it isn't really as bad as it is. Open the blinders people, and look around! It is as bad as it seems, and we had better get prepared, and quick!
Let's be realistic about history for a minute. Throughout the history of the world, we follow civilizations that have followed the pride cycle, that's what I call it. It is a rise and fall of civilizations. Once a civilization has become so wicked and prideful, they get destroyed, either
BAM! They get humbled again.
If you look at this cycle, it has happened over and over throughout the history of the world as we know it. Now...........let's be realistic and take a big step back and look at the bigger picture of the world. Where do we sit, not only as a civilization, but the bigger step back, as the world. As a world of people where are we sitting in that pride cycle? And.... more importantly.... what happened when civilizations became so wicked and prideful, selfish and corrupt? They were compelled to be humbled by whatever means the Lord saw fit. BAM!
As a world civilization, I believe we are there. We are going to be compelled to be humble. He is going to take care of it, if we won't do it ourselves, He will bring us to our knees. And it is happening everywhere we look around us. THAT'S REALISTIC! The scriptures warn us of many things. Some call it "judgement day" (I talked to someone just a couple of days ago that said this), some call it "the end of the world as we know it". I don't really care what you call it, as long as you see it happening, and do something about it. We are being warned, over and over.
Mark 13:8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
D&C88: 89 For after your testimony cometh the testimony of earthquakes, that shall cause groanings in the midst of her, and men shall fall upon the ground and shall not be able to stand.
90 And also cometh the testimony of the voice of thunderings, and the voice of lightnings, and the voice of tempests, and the voice of the waves of the sea heaving themselves beyond their bounds.
91 And all things shall be in commotion; and surely, men’s hearts shall fail them; for fear shall come upon all people.
Let's Be Realistic!
Get prepared! Get ready! And quit procrastinating, because it is happening with or without you!
