Those of you who have followed my blog posts would be aware that I have a fundamental spiritually side characterized by my love of Christian music of many forms from across two millennia. Recently, I have been thinking of writing the occasional article titled “For Christians Only“. This would allow me to separate material which might offend any secular-minded readers.
When I started writing a decade ago, I came across the following definition for the name I had chosen, ‘The POOG’, accidentally:
The mightiest of all men. He fights ignorant darkness in the name of wisdom, truth, courage, and honor.Urban Dictionary
When I created this website last July, my goal was to understand the power structure in the world. As I developed the idea, I created a document structure designed to contain all my research and associated materials. In retrospect, the task was impossibly large and many areas of my site are undeveloped. Distractions like COVID-19 arose that continue to take up too much of my time.
One of the earliest pages/articles that I wrote was The Picture on the Box. It described the task of trying to assemble the pieces of a puzzle when you have no idea what the final puzzle will look like. Then, a few months ago, the picture began to emerge. As I understood the enormity of what it was, how long it has been in preparation and implementation – centuries – and how advanced its implementation is, I gave up.
At that point I understood that there was a tremendous battle approaching, that I was helpless before it, and that it was spiritual in nature. You have no idea of the power of the enemy amassing against you. I began to spend up to 2 hours and more a day in prayer and meditation. The clear sense came to me: “put God first”.
At a critical point, Fountainview Academy published a short video on Proverbs 3:5,6:
Then, someone reminded me of 2 Chronicles 20. In verses 15 and 17 the Israelites were told. in the face of an overwhelming army (emphasis added):
15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.
17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.KJV
Today I came across an essay by Edward Curtain in Off-Guardian: Denying the Demonic. Read it. He captures the essence of the demonic state of the world much better than I can. Don’t wait to buy oil for your lamp (Matthew 25:1-13).
