DODGING A PROPHETIC BULLET
The television show Fringe has returned again to once again get my mind wondering about fate, prophecy and the future. Time is one of those things that is set for all of us so that past present and future doesn’t collide with each other and kill us all.
As a Fortean I can say that we are all cosmic playthings that really don’t know all of the answers. We convince ourselves that our religious philosophies are true, and they sit right with our consciousness but in reality the planet earth is one big starship traveling through space and time with different belief systems that guide and develop that which we care to call the future.
I asked my audience a question about Barack Obama. I asked if anyone ever considered that President Barack Obama fulfilled the requirements of being a counterfeit messiah. A messianic executive branch of the United States government hints at a possibility that prophecy may or may not be fulfilled. An opinion poll that says that 73 percent believe that Obama is the antichrist, and a man at an Obama fundraiser is escorted out by police after he yells out in the crowd that Barak Obama is the devil incarnate.
It’s time to ask ourselves if all of these prophecies are driving us mad. Are we allowing the prophecy to guide our directions? Can the hysteria concerning a prophecy become a factor driving its potential fulfillment? Can we dodge a prophetic bullet?
Core belief systems die hard and when we claim that a majority of people believe a certain way we must step back and wonder if it is really the core belief or it is a lie we keep telling ourselves until a better lie shows up to take its place.
For example, I have often marveled at the argument that we are a Christian nation with beliefs that extol the virtues of Christianity. That means that all precepts of Christianity are considered as the foundation of what we are as a world power. That means that from the virgin birth to the second coming the story must be told and retold, the prophecies will be fulfilled and there is no way that we are going to dodge a prophetic bullet.
One thing we do not have in this Christian country is protocols for welcoming to this earth the arrival of a god. This is an amazing oversight. From all indications believing in a protestant or even a dominionist God and having it being the chief cornerstone of our country’s morality has to include the eventuality of his return because of prophecy that indicates that a meeting with supreme overseers is inevitable.
In 1928 W.I. Thomas came up with a very interesting theory. He said that “If men define situations as real, they are real in their consequences.” This is what has
eventually become known as Thomas Theorem.
His idea was that an interpretation of a situation causes the action. This interpretation is not objective. Actions are affected by subjective perceptions of situations. Whether there even is an objectively correct interpretation is not important for the purposes of helping guide individuals’ behavior.
Therefore all prophecies, events and fulfillments must be declared fulfilled by an authority that most people can agree is objective. This also in my opinion means that we will never know a true fulfillment of prophecy. We will never be able to get an honest disclosure.
There will always be the smirk and smug skeptic who will rule out anything that might even fulfill prophecy, declare a supernatural moment as valid and develop a faith based movement through time that allows for probabilities to manifest. There are things that people think and believe are in existence, but only because they have faith that it is true.
Now if one has experienced an unexplainable event and they have no evidence of the strange event happening to them, does this mean it never happened to them? Is there a time where we can explain to people that absence of proof is not necessarily proof of absence.
For the past couple of weeks there have been speculations and proof that something maybe happening out in space. There have been pictures submitted of anomalies around the sun, there have been fireballs that have hit the earth and caused damage. There has been cataclysm after cataclysm happening all over the planet. Each month of the year has given us something new to experience on the nightly news. The Mayan elders warned us in prophetic script that the Cycle of
Creation will come to an end in late October. They have written that the countdown precedes the main event on December 21st, 2012. It will be during the winter solstice. We will see signs and wonders in the heavens as written by the servants of Jesus in the bible. We are now seeing these eerie and somewhat biblical events that have torn towns apart, destroyed lives and have put the entire planet in peril.
Is it because a prophecy has been given and the hysteria is fulfilling the event or are these things being carried out by another power in order to convince us that these prophecies are fulfilled. We need to ask a very important question, can there be a consensus fear so great that it shapes destiny?
How can Christians, Edgar Cayce followers. Nostradamus readers, and followers of astrological movements not commit to the idea that what we are seeing now is exactly what we expected. Equally how can skeptics not see these horrible events and not take into consideration that these hocus pocus prophecies are actually being fulfilled and that there will most definitely be in the future the very events that we have all been told will happen? Should we attempt to dodge that bullet? Is
it possible? In the Book of the Apocalypse there is a story about an angel that picks up a huge stone and throws it at the earth.
“And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.”
This was a revelation that was given to the Apostle John.
Now Nostradamus has his say with his centuries and quatrains;
“The great star for seven days will burn; the cloud will cause two suns to appear: The big mastiff all night will howl, when the great pontiff changes countries.”
“The great mountain round of seven stadia, Afterwards peace, war, famine, flood, It will roll far away sinking great countries, Even antiquities, and great.”
And finally Barack Obama read this on the observance of the 10 year anniversary of 9/11:
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved; God will help it when the morning dawns. The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts”
The past week has seen its hysteria with mass UFO sightings, fireballs from heaven, and the sighting of an anomalous ball orbiting the sun. Is there anyone willing to declare that this is a fulfillment?
Is it programming? Are we about to suffer the consequences of allowing a prophecy to be fulfilled or can we dodge the bullet?
NASA will be conducting a Press conference announcing the approach of a large asteroid over planet earth. Is this the proof we are looking for.
Who will decide what truth is, and what is nebulous prophecy?
It must boil down to the collective. We have already made our decision.
