The above article explains that Americans clicked on links concerning Miley Cyrus after her "soft porn" performance at the VMA's 12 times more than they did stories about the looming war in Syria during the same time frame.
Some people may think it extreme to say that this measure of news interest may actually be the death of the once greatest nation on earth. Could it be that it is our comfort and our complacency with our greatness that has led us to this point?
Understand the profound implications of Barack Hussein Obama leading us into war in Syria - with or without Congressional approval. If he does so without approval, then it could be interpreted we have become a dictatorship - plain and simple. We will no longer be a free nation and a Constitutional Republic - but rather a nation that goes to war, any war, on the whim of its dictator.
If Obama goes to war with approval, then, to many people, it's just one more piece of evidence that our leaders in Washington are 100% bought and controlled by the New World Order and their plan of global domination which necessarily includes the destruction of the United States of America.
I personally don't know that one decision is worse than the other, but I do believe that one way or another ... we are going to war with Syria.
For much too long Americans as a whole have become caught up in the "matrix" of life. We teach our kids, practically from birth, that life's goal is to do well in school, get a college education, get a good-paying job, buy a nice big house and plenty of "toys", and start planning for retirement.
I am all for obtaining a good education and bettering one's self, but at what cost? Is it worth the precious time we could have been spending as families? Is it worth staying in debt and becoming a slave to "the system" to have all those nice toys when we could make a few sacrifices in our own lives and help people
with "real" needs? Is it worth working 10-12 hours a day, coming home and eating a fast-food dinner on the couch in front of the PROPAGANDA BOX then falling asleep - only to get up and do it all over again?
Please understand that the Miley Cyrus types of this world are purposely placed there and used by the New World Order for one reason only - distraction. I can assure you, the timing of her live soft core porn performance was no accident. After all, what sells better than sex? And SEX from a physically attractive young girl distracts even better.
The spiritual implications of war in Syria are even greater. Please understand that modern Christianity started with the transformation of Saul, who would become Paul. Where did his transformation take place? ... ON THE DAMASCUS ROAD!
And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. (Acts 9:1-6 KJV)
Also understand, according to the Prophet Isaiah, that this is exactly where the end will begin. It will begin with the destruction of Damascus - thus leading to a great world war in the Middle East ... with Israel at its center.
The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid. The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the Lord of hosts. And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean. (Isaiah 17:1-4 KJV)
You see - the two points I have made here are intricately intertwined. Just as we, as a nation, have lost sight of the very values that led to the founding and growing of this nation: God, Family and Freedom ... we have also lost sight of the Truths that come from the diligent study of God's Word. Many have lost this important vision simply because they have bought the lie that the Bible is just an old, outdated, bunch of fairy tales. They have been duped into believing that there is no God - just live it up and get what you can get for yourself. Others have been led astray because they have become so caught up in the "matrix" that they don't have, or don't make, time for God or the truths of His Word.
It amazes me, how even around some "Christians," when one tries to discuss these subjects we often get blank stares as if people have no idea about what we are speaking of. It is as though they have no clue that the world is literally watching the Bible unfold in front of our very eyes. Yet many of these same people can tell you exactly what despicable things Miley Cyrus did for the world to see and what the terms for the things she did are called!
Wake up people! Jesus is coming soon!
It's time to make a difference. The time for REVOLUTION, both spiritual and political, is now.
