If you still follow this blog, you may have noticed that I have not been active for some time now. There are several reasons for this. One of them was hurricane Michael. It damaged our home and severely damaged our community last October, and, as of yet, nothing in our lives around here has returned to anything resembling normal. I also allowed myself to become distracted by Face Book. I thought I could do better by reaching more people on that medium rather than with my blogging. I was wrong. But the real reason I stopped blogging is even more difficult to explain; mostly because I do not know how to explain it without sounding arrogant, self-centered or conceited. Still, if you are still out there, I owe it to you to try to explain.
I started blogging close to fifteen years ago. At that time, I thought I had something to say that others simply had to hear. I was wrong I was doing it because I liked the sound of my own voice, the attention it got me and the conflict it generated. In short, when I started blogging, I was part of the problem. Along the way, I started trying to actually live my faith. Looking back, I can see that, the better I got at walking according to Scripture, the more I drew back from expressing my thoughts and opinions. Until, now, I not only do not think I have anything of any great value to share, I have no desire to share it. Where blogging was once great fun to me, now, I count it nothing but drudgery. I simply do not want to do it — not anymore.
This brings me to the reason for this post. I have recently realized that I must stop with Face Book. In fact, I must pull back from a great many of the things most of us have come to consider as just being a normal part of our daily lives. Now, this is the part where I do not know how to explain what comes next without giving my readers the wrong impression — but I’ll try. I must draw back from these things because they are poison. At the same time, I must try to warn those who will listen. The only way I can warn anyone and have any certainty that I have some degree of control over maintaining my message is to go back to blogging. I own the domains — at least for the time being. This means, the information I post remains under my control — again, for the time being. This is quickly going to become absolutely crucial to anyone who seeks to learn or preserve the Truth. I see a great evil coming. In fact, I fear it is already upon us. And I am compelled to explain what I have been shown to anyone with ears to hear.
This is why I am not only going to return to all three of my blogs, but I am going to be more active and write with much more purpose than I ever have. But I am not doing so because I want to do so. In fact, I want to avoid this more than ever, because — if I am correct about what is coming — my blogging may well seal my fate, and that of the ones I love most. No, I am going to return to my blogs because it is what I know I am supposed to be doing and because, more than anything, I wish to be obedient to He Who matters most. At the same time, I wish my readers to know that I am no prophet, nor do I claim to be. I have been given no special revelation. In fact, I have no special gifts of any kind. I am just a person who said, “Here I am, send me,” and He — in His great wisdom — sent me. Now, I only pray I do not fail Him, or any of you who may read my words. This will be my prayer from this point forward: this, and that my words will somehow help whomever they are meant to find.
[NOTE: In the next few days, I will write a post explaining my plans for all three of my blogs. Please stay tuned. I won’t be long in putting up my next post.]
