The grapes of wrath are being trampled.

Posted by appolus on September 23, 2021

In the last few days I have mentioned to some people that my friend just died. Normally that kind of statement elicits some kind of reply like “I’m so sorry for your loss.” Not in the days we are living. The first question is “was it Covid” And the second question is “was he vaccinated.” And when they hear he was not vaccinated you get something like “uh huh.” No sorry for your loss, no sympathy at all, just smug validation of their own particular bias. Imagine someone told me that their friend died and instead of saying how sorry I was I ask a series of questions. And depending on how they answer those questions will determine my response. Was he fat? Was he a smoker? Did he drink? According to this new standard, if they answer yes to any of these questions my reply will be “uh huh.” Well he should not have been so fat. That’s what you get if your a drinker. Smokers deserve to die. Horrifying, right?

Now the people that I mentioned it to happened to be of a certain political persuasion. My friends and my Christian brothers and sisters reacted in what we would consider to be normal. They sympathized. Not these folks. Their souls have been eaten away by politics and ideology. Ironically it would be they who would would have formally talked about having to have compassion. And they would accuse others of having no compassion. They would talk about virtuous things and charity and the need for more charity. Except of course for unborn children. And in the end, those who have such disdain for the unborn easily switch to having disdain for the lives of those whom they disagree with politically. I used to wonder how so much of German society was given over to murderous madness. How could there be so little sympathy for their fellow human beings? I am seeing the seeds of that human catastrophe beginning to break through.

Consider what the Doctor in my friends case said to his wife, a dying man mind you, on the phone. He told her that her husband was going to die and he deserved to die. And, he said, he probably infected others before he came in here. Lest she have any hope, he told her that a 35 year old man came in at the same time as her husband and he was already dead. In defense of her husband, the wife said he had merely exercised his constitutional rights in not getting vaccinated. To this the doctor told her that they had no rights. He told her that if she had TB, he would have her held down and he would inject into her whatever he damn well pleased(his words) and only then would he let her up. The wife was totally frantic at the notion that this monster was in charge of her husbands health. All of this because she dared to suggest a drug called Ivermectin for her dying husband. He told her she was a conspiracy theorist. The hospital removed him from the case the following morning.

I want to suggest to you dear reader that there is a level of animosity in America that is reaching critical mass in regard to the soul. There is something in the atmosphere and people are breathing it in. It is much more toxic and lethal than any virus. It is eating away at the soul of the ones who are willingly breathing it in. We are raising a generation of sociopaths. The dye is cast and the grapes of wrath are being trampled even as we speak. This is an ancient vine. The bitterest of all the fruits. And in the end there will only be two vines. Upon one hangs the grapes of wrath, upon the other the saints. One is fed and nurtured by Satan, and the other is the Lords. The generation that is coming forward is the generation into which we shall be given over to, for a time. And such a time as there has never been before. If those days which are coming are not shortened then every saint upon the earth will be killed by the legions that are growing in our midst.

And yet, despite all of that, we are called to love our enemies and do good to those who spitefully use us and abuse us. Our boldness should not be in defending our rights,. but in demonstrating and manifesting Jesus on the earth. The Hebrew children never complained about the fact that the king was having them burned, they are recorded as testifying to the fact that God would keep them and even if they died in the fire they would never bow down to the gods of this world. This is our boldness brothers and sisters, having the courage to stand up and declaring that we will never bow down to the gods of this world. Deliverance by our own hands from our enemies is not what we are called to.

Praising God in the midst of it all is. Making declarations. Standing upon the truth. Loving when we are hated. rendering not evil for evil. This is our journey. Do not be tempted off the narrow path. Fighting for your rights is an exit ramp. Politics is an exit ramp. And when you exit the narrow path you run straight into darkness, the very darkness that has robbed so many today of simple natural affection. Stay the course brothers and sisters. Recognize the signs of the times and the season in which we live, not to fight back as the world fights. Rather to trim our lamps and call upon the reserves of oil in our vessels that we may keep the light burning for a lost humanity to see and perhaps be drawn to.

    I’m shocked to the core reading your report. I am also sad about this. He was my friend too (via online); I was just getting to know him. I am so sorry for your grief over this your loss. Thank you for the wisdom of the last few paragraphs, spoken in love.

    Brother I’m so sorry for your loss. This might sound strange, but the darker and more cold hearted people become, (whether it’s the political dictators or some virtue signaling, brainwashed, liberal everything advocate) my upset/frustration has turned in to a deep dread for these people. The terrifying eternal reality that awaits them…….I don’t even want to see the vengeance of the Lord on these people, it terrifies me to be honest. I feel like a little child when I hear these people anymore, thinking ” my dad is going to be so mad, you are in so much trouble.” My love and fear of the Lord seems to be strengthening me more and more in these days. What these people cannot grasp is that their choices will ultimately determine their death as well. May the Holy Spirit fill our hearts and minds continually with the mercy and confidence in our calling to follow our majestic King of Kings. God bless you!

    I have seen the same attitude displayed. I spoke to a cousin day before yesterday for 55 minutes … a wonderful talk about Jesus … his trips to Israel and such. I was to learn he died the next morning of a heart attack. Someone asked me if he had gotten the vaccine. I could not put the feelings I have into words except to say we are living in the midst of a perpetual chaotic state. No empathy … people are caught up in the propaganda which is intended to create fear.

    I have such a sense we are close to the time so similar to the description my deceased husband spoke about. He was Jewish and lost his whole family to the Holocaust in Europe except grandparents who were just kids sent out to escape … they met on a train. He said their once close neighbors quickly turned from friends to enemies.

    We are to stand strong and be courageous … this is only the beginning … there is coming much more to endure. I think of the verse in Jeremiah “If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?

    I am indeed sorry … sorry for the elderly who are dying alone without family in nursing homes. I am sorry about the little kids that are mandated to wear a mask all day long while in school. This is a type of promoted isolation and separation. I am sorry for the people who are seeing doctors who believe the lie. Worst of all I am sorry for those who do not know Jesus. He is our ever present shelter from this storm that is brewing. I am sorry for this doctor you spoke about … he is so lost in the maze created for him by Satan. We are in a spiritual battle that few see but we are to be watchmen on the wall.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your dear friend … when my son died the Holy Spirit gave me a verse to hang onto. Isaiah 57:1-2 “The righteous person perishes, and no one takes it to heart; And devout people are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous person is taken away from evil, He enters into peace; They rest in their beds, Each one who walked in his upright way.”
