I Fear the New Normal

For some time, people have been wondering about the new normal. Many have said masks, vaccinations, mob mentality, and the loss of liberty for safety will be all a part of the new normal.

I have said for some time that the Last Days will be days where people will not see with their eyes nor hear with their ears the direction of their world, including their Governments.

This is an era where we do not see … nor do we hear, what the spirit is saying to us.

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.

Those vicious wolves have an agenda to control and devour. The new normal will be a vicious cycle of:

• Lawlessness

• The loss of liberty

• Management by fear and intimidation

• Mob mentality

• Destroying the final vestiges of our Judeo-Christian society of law and morality

• A minority who are vocal and violent, and the majority who are silent and numb

Very few Spiritual leaders are questioning the liberty issue of closing Churches and taking away the liberty of worship gatherings. Dr. John Macarthur has defied California’s order to reclose Churches for in-person worship and on July 26, 2020 they met indoors as a church.

LOS ANGELES (RNS) — Grace Community Church congregants in Sun Valley gathered indoors and sang hymns on Sunday (July 26), defying California regulations that aim to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Some would say that I’m too sensitive about this loss of liberty because it is for the protection of everyone in this era of the virus pandemic. I have serious reservations about this virus and its grave statistics we are hearing from our media. Recently, one local pastor and his wife tested positive for the virus. So far, it has been a mild case of a cough with no symptoms of anything more serious. This was the same for so many people who tested positive for the virus, with little to no affect. But some would say what about the more vulnerable people with health issues and the elderly? Yes, some people will have a more serious reaction to it, but it is those people we protect.

I am not going to argue there isn’t a threat, but more than the health threat we should be more afraid of what this represents long term. Everyone remembers 9/11 and how security became a big thing, especially for those who travel. Homeland Security was created by our Government to protect against terroristic attacks. The same will happen with health. We will create a National Health Agency with more power to control vaccinations and the overall health of the Nation. This agency could operate a vaccination system that will mirror that of what we do for our dogs. All dogs in our city must be vaccinated before the owners can get a license, and in the same way our vaccination status as humans may become more of a requirement to buy or sell in person. Just think about that. You have to present a certified card like a driver’s license that indicates your vaccinations are up to date.

I realize I am speculating here, but is it really that far-fetched? TSA and all the security lines at the airports are all about your safety, so who isn’t for that? The new health requirements will also be about your safety, and who wouldn’t be for that? Yet, the sinister side of all these safety issues will ultimately be about control. Safety is the optimum word these days, and who wouldn’t want to be safe? Yet, safety at the expense of liberty is the real question … isn’t it? With all that has happened during COVID-19, we can see how an economy can be shut down, how Church services can be suspended, and how mobs can rule the land.

I think the question to you today is simple: “Do you have eyes to see and ears to hear?” So many of my friends have been concerned about our Country, and most of them are people of Faith. Jesus posed an important question to His Disciples about Faith:

Luke 18:8 But when the Son of Man returns, how many will he find on the earth who have faith?

Listen my friend, that description is of a person who has ears to hear what the Spirit is saying, and a person whose eyes see clearly from the Word of God. I’m not convinced we are seeing or hearing correctly today. I’m not trying to be difficult here, but there is a fine line between being aware and being deceived. To me, Biblical Teaching is like parenting. There are those who are rich and give everything to their kids. These kids grow to be spoiled brats whose appreciation borders on entitlement. Gaining Spiritual insight isn’t about getting it from others … it’s about digging it out for yourself. If everything you get concerning Spiritual insight is from others, you are in trouble. You will never learn to develop Spiritual eyes and ears to hear the Voice of God.

The new normal isn’t about remaining safe … it’s about taking a risk and Trusting in God. It’s saying no to the world and yes to God. It is about tuning out the newscasts and tuning into the Word of God and developing how to hear God and see the Truth in His Word.

Don’t be someone who is always quoting someone else’s Spiritual Truth … find it for yourself. You will then have the eyes and ears you need in these Last Days.
