Freedom In Oppression

Most people seem to get their News reports from mainstream media…

CNN, Fox News, CBS, ABC News, The New York Times, MSNBC, Google News, NBCNews, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Newsweek, and TIME are several prominent sources for the news in my country, the United States. Whether you’re sitting at the table with a cup of coffee, standing in line at the grocery, trying to stay awake in a waiting room, or even in the patient chair at the dentist, there’s reading material. Televisions. Current events are being reported everywhere. You may not have it at the time, but somewhere someone else has connections to what’s being reported as news in today’s world.

I’ve noticed over the past year that a lot of people seem to just avoid the news, almost like its irrelevant to their lives. Perhaps they aren’t considering the fact that what’s going on around the world affects them in a local way, whether it be very obvious or not. There are tons of sources for news, to find out what’s going on around the world today. The very popular news sources listed above aren’t the only ones…

I am not a conspiracy theorist, but I do believe that everything in this world deserves a second glance. Deception, delusion, and distraction are very real, alive and well in today’s world. I have personally never been into the news or keeping up with current events until over a year ago. I began paying attention to science as well because the world events and even the events of space were significant to my faith.

A whole lot of people alive right now are oppressed.

Oppression: To keep down by severe and unjust use of force or authority, or

To cause to feel worried or depressed.

We are all troubled in various ways to various degrees. From depression and struggles of the mind to being taken captive in the flesh…captivity of the mind or the body, or the stripping of freedom…

You’re online right now. Check out YouTube. Bible Prophecy is coming to pass. A great example would be the one I stumbled upon today.

The Destruction of Damascus seems to be in the works (As described in Isaiah 17)

and

Now is the time to seek freedom. So many people around the world today can tell you that the freedom(s) they’ve known are fading away or are obsolete. Where is hope? What are you counting on and hoping for? What can bring you comfort?

“He who the Son sets free is free indeed.” (John 8:36)

The truth is growing more and more scarce everyday. This is not the world I grew up in. Even our sun is getting tired…

Everything here is temporary. Flesh returns to dust. Have you ever considered there may be more?

This message is written to offer hope, to let you know that even in a world full of chaos, you can still have peace. In Jesus Christ.

Seek Him while you can.

God bless always
