time keeps on slipping into the future…

Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future

Lyrics by Steven Haworth Miller

(Fire in Rome by Hubert Robert, 1778 / MuMa – Musée d’art moderne André Malraux, Le Havre, France)

In 64 AD, Rome burned.
And supposedly the Emporer Nero fiddled with abandoned glee.

Now whether or not there was any fiddling on a fiddle taking place, there was no doubt
some fiddling of the facts taking place.

Once the fire had been contained and finally extinguished,
over two-thirds of the city lay in ruins.

The Emperor blamed the Christians.
That subversive religious “cult.”

However, historians actually believe that Nero himself had the fires set because he wanted
to create a grandiose “golden house” that would be a massive endeavor, a tribute
to his reign, and cover an expansive portion of Rome…
so long story short, Nero needed the space.

As the ever gracious Emperor, he immediately began offering food and aid to the
masses of his people whose lives were now decimated.

How kind.

Fast forward to Berlin, 1933.

The German Chancellory, The Reichstag…the home to the German Parliament, burns.
Hitler blames a known Communist sympathizer, however historians are in agreement,
Hitler had the Reichstag burned.

(Burning of the Reichstag 1933, Berlin, Germany)

The burning was the excuse Hitler needed in order to round up all the Communists,
allowing his Nazi party to finally fill in the gap;
the party could take the majority of seats in parliament, and in turn,
take control of the Nation.

How convenient.

Fast forward to 2020.

There is a pandemic along with a quarentine lockdown.

The Speaker of the House brags, while standing in front of her expensive subzero
refidgerators / freezers, that she is ‘enduring’ the lockdown with top shelf ice cream…
all the while small businesses are told they must shutter their livlihood or else.
Houses of worship are closed.

Civil unrest breaks out.

Cities are burned.

Businesses are destroyed.

Lives and livihoods are left in shambles.

Throw in a contentious election with a deeply divided Nation.

The conservative republicans, in particular those “MAGA” supporters,
those who support the President, are the ones who the progressive left
blame for all the woe…

Is there some sort of pattern here, or am I just imagining things…

Ode to the power of the power hungry…

“Therefore their way will be like slippery paths to them,
They will be driven away into the gloom and fall down in it;
For I will bring calamity upon them,
The year of their punishment,” declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 23:12

    As I grow older it seems to me that man is intent on his own destruction. It started in the Garden of Eden. When we look at history as you and I do there is a pattern and it seems we never learn from the past. I am praying that we learn from this one. Our country is being gobbled up by those who seek power and wealth. We need to be on guard and ready.

    Lies are some of the ways humans take things into their own hands without regard for God or His wrath. Good comparisons. I don’t think you are imagining anything.

    A friend from church e-mailed about a friend who had a slight cough. She tested positive for COVID, had fluid in the lungs, so spent one night in the hospital, then released – no other symptoms, now COVID free. He husband, with leukemia, stayed with her in the hospital, not sick at all. She was pointing out that this is normal, but all the media wants to do is incite government to increase lockdown because the cases are increasing, sure cases of people testing positive, but not really sick. Her point was that is this a pandemic or a means to control us by forcing the mask rules? I think it was to rig the election. The Dems had mail bags at the ready in all states that could flip either way and then pulled them out when it was proving that they needed them. ALLEGEDLY But the mail bags would never have worked if COVID restrictions had not been in place. We would have all gone to our scheduled voting location.

    • I have a childhood friend who is a doctor down in Jacksonville- she called the other evening and told me she’s had about 45 patients with Covid, only one hospitalized and no deaths.
      She is very much a supporter of the President and said that there in no clear cut science behind the mask mandate —
      So it all looks conveniently orchestrated— let’s take a bad thing, make it really really worse and turn everything in our favor…
      We are NOT stupid!!

    I’m with you Julie. The virus is real, but politicians and the media created the pandemic to control people and create much fear and chaos for political gain. They have no idea what they are doing and this will not end well at all.
