No veto in the EU Parliament

When God gave the nations into the hands of Nebuchadnezzar he also placed limits on the actions the king could  take against those peoples.  The United Nation may be stymied by communists , despots, and amoral religious extremists but justice is going to have her day apart from the tribal instincts that have dominated international relations for the last century.   No amount of media manipulation can prevail, and the time has come for the beasts to act with a human heart.  There comes an end to vetoes over just resolutions.

Limits on superpower a activity

20) He says, “You are My war-club, My weapon of war; And with you I shatter nations, And with you I destroy kingdoms. 21) With you I shatter the horse and his rider, And with you I shatter the chariot and its rider, 22) And with you I shatter man and woman, And with you I shatter old man and youth, And with you I shatter young man and virgin, 23) And with you I shatter the shepherd and his flock, And with you I shatter the farmer and his team, And with you I shatter governors and prefects. 24) But I will repay Babylon and all the inhabitants of Chaldea for all their evil that they have done in Zion before your eyes,” declares the Lord,” declares the Lord.” (Jeremiah 51:20-24, NASB)

They shall not cleave

The prediction of the last world ruling power specifies that they will not stay united, and it is clear that they (the Ten Horns, the original European kingdoms) did not with the defection of the United Kingdom. 

“And in that you saw the iron mixed with common clay, they will combine with one another in the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, even as iron does not combine with pottery.”

Daniel 2:43, NASB

The European Union is now a different beast, no longer seven heads and ten horns, and clearly joined in heart and hand, doing the right thing.

The world today

Should we be doing more than engage in the virtual and group speak and virtual and group think? Becoming a genuine contributor in today’s inclusive environment often means that all kinds of vile and reprehensible behaviours and concepts get a a rating of acceptable or legitimate. The surprise of pretenders and trick or treaters should be wearing off after the spectacle of failed democracies, entrenched and self-serving monarchies, and corrupt tribal alliances. The world today is a welcome gift compared to the medieval darkness of the western world or the feudal oppression of the eastern world.

Packaging the news is not a political ploy

The following is the summary of today’s news my inbox disclosed. It does not tell me why the items were chosen. The summary gives neither rating stars nor political spin, yet these two are the interests of many consumers of the daily news. The most dangerous takes are happening in circles where either religion or politics offers up ways to respond to the news. To those who thrive on trigger words and believe everything seen in a video the processing of the written word is a despised dinosaur.

  • Two safety nets that helped many in the U.S. through the COVID-19 pandemic are about to end.
  • The remnants of Hurricane Ida have forced many tenants to pack up and make new plans.
  • In Afghanistan, the Taliban have seized control of Panjshir, the last holdout province.
  • In West Africa, Guinea is now being led by a junta following a coup.
  • In tennis, there are upsets galore at the U.S. Open in New York.
  • And at the box office, the Marvel film “Shang-Chi” has set Labor Day records, giving hope to the movie industry still reeling from the pandemic.

Thanks to the many media houses like AP, who, first and foremost, provide their observations to the majority. Thanks too to those who provide analysis and probing questions about the meaning of the unfolding events. No thanks though to those who try to predict the future or insist that their speculations are food for sustainable living. Ultimately, people want good news, hope for their own lives and the lives of their neighbours, unless they are great nations who think they are so hated that they have no choice but be insular and selfish.

Across the planet upheavals and new horizons appear along with all the usual human delusions. Whether you live in the US, the Middle East, or Africa you may not realize that people are suffering right next door to you. The suffering of neighbours may not be an issue at all. We often read the news without a thought that we could be the subjects later today. We can fix that.

Who cares that people are losing the government safety nets that assisted them in coping with the covid–19 pandemic? What does it matter that another hurricane is reducing the lives of thousands to sheer misery, or that more than 50 lives have been lost? What does it matter that bogus rights activists are attacking healthcare workers, questioning the science of religion and the viral pandemic? Does it matter that another nation’s destiny appears to be delayed by a coup? Is it possible that we all do not want to see an end to the pandemic? Why do Americans seem to be accustomed to living with an annual season of African-sourced cyclones but cannot come to grips with the African peoples living in the nation, a people kidnapped, bought (and sold) and treated as animals? Our world today needs to become ours wherever we live, whatever or politics and religion. The next generation of young visionaries will not fail. Their energy will eclipse the vanity and pride of greedy corporations, eclipse the expanding bogus religious integrity, and eclipse the nationalism that seems to make most people think that they are righteous.
