signs of the times

And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God:
and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels,
to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying,
Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees,
till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

Revelations 7:2-3

Driving into the city this past week, I was greeted by this sign, as well as a few others,
offering what one might think to be some good and rather sound advice regarding
our collective health…

Make Safe Choices
Wash Your Hands
Watch you Speed.

Please Stay Home
Disinfect, Wash Hands

And yet this was the image from the interstate the other evening following the latest incident
involving a police shooting

On the one hand, the powers that be want to keep us all safe and virus free.
As some signs state that “Masks are in, everyone is wearing them”
and yet, when the unruly angry mobs rally en masse, there is a slight double standard.

The closing of businesses and houses of worship had been mandated while rioters
were allowed to commander our cities.

Angry mobs have been allowed to swarm together, unmasked, like an angry hive of hornets.
They burn, destroy, steal, smash, and cause massive costly damage with nary a
word said by the powers that be…
but should a parish wish to gather in order to bury a loved one…well, regulations abound.

Double standards,
You tell me!

All the signs seem to be pointing to a sinking ship…

You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said:
“‘This people honors me with their lips,
but their heart is far from me;
in vain do they worship me,
teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’”

Matthew 15:7-9

    All logic and common sense seems gone. But I do find it here. Thanks.

    Signs of the Times indeed. And the amazing (and sad) part is… this is worldwide, not just nationwide!

    I’ve been thinking of you friend! This madness is almost too much… not that it’s happening but the hypocrisy that goes along with it, as you have pointed out. It’s like we’ve fallen down the rabbit hole into another dimension. The road signs and creepy grocery store announcements have me feeling like I’m in a George Orwell novel.

    • I hear you Shara—I went to the grocery store today and the cart cleaners were busy, the signage of distancing and limiting still abounds, the flour aisle is still sparce, never has there been lysol or hand sanitizer for the past near 4 months and the mask people were all over the place (except for moi and a few other brave or stupid souls depending on who you ask 😉 )
      and yet the Atlanta police left last night in droves over all the madness…the riots, the looting, the shootings and their zero due process—
      I wanted to scream in the grocery store for everyone to wake up—the world as we know it has imploded and they’re eyes keep darting back and forth over those blasted masks as if mustard gas was about to fill the store…
      Where are the sane people during this chaos???

        Walked the mall today with my 14 year old… no mask. He said mom this is weird. I felt like it won’t be the last time we are singled out. And I’d never endanger my family or anyone else… but lining up outside the store and waiting my turn to go in with a mask on… not gonna happen.

      • I ready to go Home

    Yes, our politicians would be nothing of not hypocritical, virtue signaling, scare mongers (when going after that other political party of course).

  5. “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day be day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except the endless present in which the party is always right.”
    And this-
    “The people will believe what the media tell them they believe.”
    George Orwell
    The church mostly played along with Hitler, or said nothing.
    This is our night of broken glass.
    We can’t be silent.
    I’m with you Cookie.

    Still praying for Atlanta

    “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send now Your Spirit over the earth. Let the Holy SPirit live in the hearts of all nations, that they may be preerved from degeneration, disaster and war. May the Lady of All Nations(….)be our Advocate. Amen.”
