With all that is going on I found it interesting this week the debate concerning Wednesday’s test of the Presidential Emergency Alert text message. Sadly, way to often, people’s opinion fell on political lines; if I like this current President this is great (but let’s keep the option to get rid of it if someone is elected who I don’t like); if I don’t like this current President, it is a tool of tyranny (but get back with me when someone is in office who I like).
Many do not realize that the blueprint for this system began after the attacks of 9/11 by President Bush’s Administration, were supported and funded by President Obama’s Administration, and now implemented by President Trump’s Administration. So, if you are looking for a President to blame for wanting to much control of your life, there are three choices.
Or, just suppose for a moment that these three men and the people in their Administrations, obviously with different political viewpoints and approaches to governing agreed that the American people need and deserve an emergency alert system using the best technology available (don’t forget no matter who is in office, you and I are paying for such a system).
Now just imagine, and I know it can be difficult, but suppose that all three men suspected—even imagined—there would come a time when Americans would need some critical information and need it instantly. Even with the spanning years of the three Administrations with different perspectives, varying motivations, suppose they shared a common goal of the welfare and well-being of the people. Even with that assumed, America remains divided.
I believe that is result in the denial of “absolute truth”. Absolute truth is the reality that something is factual even if we do not like it; even if it does not fit into our agenda; even if it is not popular.
We have the ultimate “early warning system” and it is the Bible. This Book written over a span of 1,600 years by 40 men does not contradict itself (despite those who take verses out of context to say it does). This Book was written by men who took the penalty of death for what they taught. This Book has been tried and tested by historians, scientists, and archeologists and every time it stands up as truth to the tests of time and scrutiny.
This Book holds the absolute truth of God—it is our ultimate warning system!
I do not believe we will receive a text message or a TV show interruption when the promise of Revelation 22:12 happens “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.”
We each must evaluate where we are—do we decide our eternity on our personal preferences, our agendas, our life status, or on absolute truth?
