Rain and 2nd Chronicles 7:14

It is not raining where I am today, the 27th of August, as the sun rises and it is looking exceptionally nice.  It is not that it was all that spectacular but more of a matter being so nice to see after a week or two of rainy days.  Don’t get me wrong, I like the rain as well as the sunshine but too much of either becomes a bit disturbing.

I lived in the Philippines for awhile and went through monsoon seasons and did not find that to be disturbing at all.  When in Guam, we had wet season and dry season, which I have to admit I preferred wet season over heavy monsoon.  However, those seasons are like summer and winter on the mainland of the U.S.

Returning to where I currently live, we had an unusually long dry spell which has been followed up by a long wet spell.  My little pond completely dried up.  I learned that I had bass and catfish as well as lots of brim.  I toyed with the idea of renting an excavator to essentially dredge the dried out pond out a little and put some of the fertile silt in my garden area since it had pretty much “given up the ghost” as well due to the drought.  Then the rain started.  The first few days it was all around me but not getting closer than a mile or two away.

Now I had already been thinking of 2nd Chronicles 7:14 back when my fish were dying, and the water was approaching “all gone” as my late wife would have put it.  I had already been thinking about the somewhat different than normal weather patterns being reported all across the nation.  I had already been thinking and praying for a “Great Awakening” to take place in our nation on the scale of the one which was instrumental in bringing the Unites States of America into existence.  With the kakistocracy in Washington, D.C. it is no surprise that such is not yet happening nor is it a surprise that the “woke” ones are embracing the Climate Change mantra instead of acknowledging that God just might be trying to get their attention and especially the attention of those who are “awake.”   After all, 2nd Chronicles 7:13-14 is addressed to the awake ones and calls us to a specified action.

My pond overfloweth:

Yes, the rain came, and it has been raining and raining … and raining.  I stopped singing “Showers of Blessing” a week ago.  I’m not complaining, and I do believe I am blessed, but I am carefully revisiting 2nd Chronicles 7:14 and making sure I am aligning myself with His call to action.  Due, in part to Genesis 8:22 and Psalm 74, I do not fall for the Climate Change Hoax that is being perpetrated on us by the leftists.  I know Who created the climate and His promises regarding it and the instructions to His people.  Therefore, as I ponder 2nd Chronicles 7:13-14, I recognize that unusual weather patterns may very well be warning signals from Our Father in Heaven because we have strayed from His paths and He still loves us and wants to do something special through us, His awake ones.

2Ch 7:13  If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; 

14  If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 

Diversity Inclusion Equity, the disease

JORDAN PETERSON RESIGNS HIS TENURED PROFESSORSHIP, BLASTS ‘A STUNNINGLY CORRUPT ENTERPRISE’ ON HIS WAY OUT

JANUARY 20, 2022

Jordan Peterson has become a voice of reason in an age of otherwise insanity. His books have been bestsellers. His podcasts, interviews, and live debates have kept listeners glued to seats, absorbing every word. Peterson himself often tearfully recounts instances in which people have approached him just to say how he’s changed their lives. But now, a group of people he has dedicated years of his life to will no longer have the kind of access to his calm, collected, measured wisdom, for he’s decided to resign from his position at the University of Toronto.null

In a column for the National Post, Peterson outlines exactly why he has chosen to leave the academy: the diversity, inclusion, and equity (DIE) disease that has infected the entire institution. He writes that because of the DIE insanity that grips the academy, his “heterosexual white male graduate students […] face a negligible chance of being offered university research positions.” And, if his students manage to conquer that hill, because of his philosophical positions, they might still be rejected, as his presence in their education and development as scholars has somehow tainted them. “These facts rendered my job morally untenable.”null

The DIE, he explains has destroyed several areas of the academy. The DIE push to meet racial, ethnic, and gender quotas ensures less than qualified candidates are accepted. “This means we’re out to produce a generation of researchers utterly unqualified for the job,” and the “death of objective testing” all but makes this much certain.

For faculty, he describes them as “craven,” lying and paying homage to the DIE overlords in statements for the purpose of receiving research funding, “further corrupting what is already a stunningly corrupt enterprise.” What’s more, Peterson writes, these spineless academics teach their students to do the same.

And if the behavior of the individual professors was not bad enough, Peterson explains that “the accrediting boards for graduate clinical psychology training programs in Canada are now planning to refuse to accredit university clinical programs unless they have ‘social justice’ orientation.”

The universities will be required to prime students to become leftist activists or be denied accreditation.

“Similar moves are afoot in other professional disciplines, such as medicine and law. And if you don’t think that psychologists, lawyers and other professionals are anything but terrified of their now woke governing professional colleges, much to everyone’s extreme detriment, you simply don’t understand how far this has all gone.”

All of this is to say that the academy is an institution rotten to its core, gripped by the venomous tentacles of the DIE monster.

“We are now at the point where race, ethnicity, “gender,” or sexual preference is first, accepted as the fundamental characteristic defining each person (just as the radical leftists were hoping) and second, is now treated as the most important qualification for study, research and employment. Need I point out that this is insane.”

Before closing his column, Peterson lashes out in righteous anger at those making this takeover possible.

“[T]his is on you Professor. Cowever cravenly in pretence and silence. Teaching your students to dissimulate and lie. To get along. […] CEOs: signalling a virtue you don’t possess and shouldn’t want to please a minority who literally live their lives by displeasure. […] Musicians, artists, writers: stop bending your sacred and meritorious art to the demands of the propagandists…”

I think it’s safe to say that the University of Toronto has lost an invaluable member of the faculty, and the professoriate at large has lost one of the last warriors willing to fight for what they are too cowardly to fight for themselves.

Perhaps if more professors had Peterson’s stones, the universities wouldn’t have anyone left to push their nonsense, and, just maybe, they might start changing, but this is far too much to ask, I suppose.

For now, the universities continue to prove to be garbage heaps of terrible ideas, substandard scholarship, and a limiting worldview detrimental to all those who choose to walk through the doors, and Jordan B. Peterson will no longer be participating in it.

“He who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind. And the wind is rising.”

I look forward to seeing what Peterson will be doing with all his free time. I love his books, and if you haven’t read them, you should.

Awake Not Woke

The leftists want us divided- pastorwardclinton.com

Americans would do well to become very aware of the language employed by progressives in order to erode fundamental American freedoms and our traditional way of life. Freedom of Religion gets changed to Freedom of Worship, which sounds innocent and harmless but it is not.

The left’s hate machine is very deceptive and dangerous but God’s word imparts strength to overcome their machinations. Be awake and be wise.

The Left’s Hate Machine is Going to Get More People Hurt

Recently I read an article that purported to rank the most highly educated states ain the U.S. not suprpisingly it was a heavily sponsored “fluff piece” with very little factual data and statistics. It seemed to be designed to give positive strokes to the woke ones and assure them that they are the smart ones for following the leftist agenda without questioning or truly thinking things out.
It was funny in a way because it was just another example of the left’s hate machine at work.
At the same time it was a bit puzzling to see the glaring errors and data skewing in the article and realize that the woke ones are happily accepting its premise. Those who are awake are the truly educaated.
What counts as education?
Simply graduating from college does not count.
People coming out of college tend to reflect the biases and limitations of their professors rather than having a legitimate understanding of the course material which they studied and eregurgitated to obtain good grades without ever learning to truly think for themselves and be able to reason things out. And the colleges and universities are rewarded for turning out mindless sheep who think they have been educated.
The woke ones aren’t learning from history, in part because they aren’t being taught real history and have been conditioned to think that history contains no fixed facts. For that very reason, they are unable to see where the ideology they are believing in will take them and us if we are not able to awaken them to genuine reality.
