What's (Possibly) To Come

Psychics announce that 2021 will see a big improvement in our way of life with everything set to get better.

Well, that's a relief. However, I have an alternative prediction which is that things will get worse but that it doesn't matter. Things will get worse because of the huge success of the lockdowns and the masks and the complicity of most populations in their own ongoing servitude. The natural reduction of infections that always happens when the spring arrives will be hailed as a triumph for the vaccines, but the precautions that we have accepted are here to stay in one form or another and can be rolled out again at any time. They aren't going away. The increasing control of governments over their people will spread into more and more areas of life but it will be managed so that most people who want to ignore it can do so. They will be given explanations for this control that appear to justify it, and they will think it is for their own good or protection or whatever other reason that will be dragged up. The destruction of traditional and natural understanding will proceed with all official bodies, including churches, joining in.

But it doesn't matter. This is a time of darkness and those who have any kind of spiritual sensibility will feel that acutely. It affects us not only outwardly but inwardly too. God may seem very distant but I would liken this to a time of crucifixion. The life of Christ prefigured the life of any disciple. It was a kind of template for those who would follow him. We may feel spiritually forsaken but God is there. We may be ridiculed by mainstream opinion but that is just worldly wisdom that has rejected the Creator. We are being tested in the fire and all we have to do is keep our trust in God, however far away he seems. It's time to prove ourselves worthy of entering his kingdom. Did you think that was going to happen without a great effort? Remember that the sun is always there behind the clouds.

I suspect this too. I see no "victory" or major shift in 2021. Too many people don't even realize there is a problem, so if things were to actually improve now then no lesson would be learned or it would just be misinterpreted as bad.

I suspect 10 years of darkness that will slowly transform the human consciousness and prepare us for something big around 2030.

That timeline is one that I am also intuitively drawn to - in the full knowledge of the foolhardiness of pinning a date to these things! But the general pattern is there.

I am of an age when thinking ahead to 2030 makes little sense. When you near the end of your life, grand vistas of history come down to today - what am I going to do today? For I may not have a tomorrow. It is tempting in times of great upheaval to analyze and prognosticate and I criticize no one for doing it, especially those who have a reasonable expectation of a long life ahead of them. But I think it also good to remember the words of St. Paul: "Now is the acceptable time." Today is the day of salvation.

That's true, edwin. From the spiritual point of view we should live in today and not fret about the future. But things are moving inexorably in a certain direction and it makes sense to be aware of that so one is prepared and not taken by surprise. Also, those who have some understanding of these matters should be able to explain to others who might be suffering what is going on and how even in the midst of spiritual darkness there is hope.

The first psychic, the one who won the competition, says that it is in 2022 things will be better financially and the return to normality.

Not 2021.

The media's headline is misleading for whatever reason.

I wonder what to make of predictions of that sort compared to the Old Testament injunction to avoid all such things.

In a certain way the OT God wants prophecy done but the Way it is to be done is very important.

William Wildblood said...

A misleading headline - fancy that! The point is though that most of these psychics, being basically worldly people from a Christian perspective, expect things to improve rather than degenerate further

I also have an intuitive sense that this nonsense will go on for 10 years -- that "the twenties" will be a coherent unit.

William Wildblood said...

That's also implied in this scenario.
