Who Opened the Portal AND...Too Late for the Frog?
The face-eater - I really didn't want to read about the face-eater but it was one of those things that gets the better of your curiosity - and maybe common sense, so I read about it in the Miami Herald after hearing about it over and over in news stories. What I read horrified me as I am sure it did everyone else, but I also had to think about how could this and did this happen? The news reports talk about "bath salts", some kind of chemical that is being used to get high. The reports are about how when you use this chemical it makes you feel like you are burning up inside, which could explain the removing of clothes, according to the reports. But I think what happened may be far worse than that. The police report also says that the face-eater had super human strength, and that he growled. I have read about this kind of thing before, minus the face eating: super human strength; extreme aggression; vocal abnormalities. In the New Testament, in the gospel of Mark, Chapter 5, verses 1-9 there was a man that Jesus set free from demon possession. I thank God for the power of Jesus Christ that can set such a person free. Too bad that did not happen to this man, or that whatever portals that he kept open in his life to allow for this were not closed by him prior...I could expound about the passage of scripture in Mark, but you can read it for yourself and really I'm writing about the frog...(I have a link to Wikipedia below about the frog story)
There is a frog in a pan and the temperature of the water in the pan increases so slowly that the frog doesn't notice until it's too late. In many ways I think that we in the USA are in that situation. I'm starting to feel well done. I'm not a historian so I can't point to the signs that existed in other countries and cultures and civilizations as they entered into the red-hot danger zone of boiling to death, but I bet we have seen a few here. And the indoctrination to our society that has allowed for the slow boil began long ago - promotion of personal ambition over the common good, independence at the expense of the family unit, the idea that wealth brings happiness, new is always better - and God forbid you should ever be sad...
Ok so what's the point? It's to get out of the water while you still can. I don't mean leave USA but I do mean GET OUT OF THE WATER - however that applies. I'm trying.
