I hope you are all heeding the signs of the times! Paying attention to those signs that help you to glimpse behind the curtain and see the hidden spiritual battles that are going on out there in the world. I am seeing more and more of these, and so today, I thought I would share the kind of signs I am talking about. Signs come not only in the physical world through the environment, social happenings and the such, and not only through dreams and visions, but through the media, the arts – signs are everywhere; if we just wake up and pay attention to them.
I just watched a very interesting movie the other day, considering the times we are in, I thought. And it was very reminiscent of other films in recent years, such as the Matrix and the Terminator, films about robots and artificial intelligence; It was called ‘Surrogates’ starring Bruce Willis. I just thought it rang a bell; the similarities with the world we are living in today with this Coronavirus and everyone staying home, many very afraid now to go out in case they catch the virus.
In the film, everyone has a surrogate robot body out in the real world so that they can ‘stay safe’ at home, jacked up to this surreal, fake online life, with their robot bodies doing the donkey work outside. And of course, they make their surrogate robots – their fake identities whatever they want them to look like – like a mask, hiding their true identities; most beautiful, perfect human dolls. Like an extreme version of some people’s online profiles now, wouldn’t you say? They look perfect and healthy while in fact their ‘jacked in’ bodies back at home get neglected. It takes a cyber attack – a computer virus, to disable the surrogates in the end and bring their real, human bodies back out into the light of the day, so that they can feel and respond as humans once more. Sounds like an end to lock-down to me!
The signs here are very clear, reflecting our current situation. To me, the front line workers are like the surrogate robots; like the Borg in Star Trek, they are masked up, their identities hidden, not as individuals, but of a collective – they are the underpaid, risk taking heroes being clapped by those ‘safe behind closed doors’ while the governments are enforcing the ‘jacked in’ life and trying to promote the start of a ‘new normal’ for the good of the collective – when there is, in fact, nothing normal about it!
Everyone’s at home glued to the daily Coronavirus news updates and hooked on an online world of Netflix, You Tube, Facebook and computer games and online shopping; hidden, unseen, only going out for food, exercise and medicine (all the things we need to keep healthy right? Except it’s not, and our mental and spiritual health is carefully being manipulated). Education being redefined so that what it will look like, is children isolated either at home, computer educated, or at school, in little isolated social distancing pockets, being programmed by the ‘Big Brother’ ‘New World Order’ State to accept their new lot in life, and be vaccinated, chipped and tagged and given their little slave roles to play as long as they toe the line and be completely available to the state’s every whim.
Does it take a virus to wake up humanity? To get us to unplug and look at the world we have been living in and ask, is this really how we want to exist? Unplug people! Open the windows and let the light in. Step out and smell the fresh air! Breathe it in! Talk to your neighbours. Hug your children. Explore life. And then maybe ask yourselves – what’s next? Are we just going to go back to the way it was, polluting the planet, consuming everything in sight? Are we going to accept the ‘new normal’? Be controlled and manipulated even more by the pharmaceutical companies and by the Bill Gates and Elon Musks, The big banking families and the Trumps of this world? Or is it time for a reboot of the system? A change in the programming? What program are you running on?
That makes me think of the Windows operating system – there is an image of a window and a rainbow. Everyone is flinging open their windows to obediently clap and whistle the “workers”, the “drones”, the “robots” – the NHS and other key front line workers, of which I am one! Not much choice in the matter, I might add! I mean, I love my job but do I get a choice of whether to risk my life or not? No, of course not! Just clap for me and stroke my ego and make me feel a little more inclined to go out and do my job, and I should feel proud to be doing it right?
Back to the windows – many of them have pictures of rainbows on them right? The rainbow was a symbol – a sign – that God gave to Noah as a promise you know; a promise that he would never destroy the Earth by a flood again! It is a symbol of ‘hope’! And in this lock-down world we are living in many are using it as a symbol of hope, trust and thanks that we put in our medical workers, our NHS and Care Workers, Police, teachers, shop workers etc. These people ARE essential to our daily lives, and yet they have no choice – it is all an illusion! They aren’t financially secure most of them, they are on minimum wages, often working mothers; this is our robot, slave workforce, and I think clapping them and putting up rainbows is, quite frankly, insulting to them.
As a Christian, I would say, it is our hope and trust in God, through Jesus Christ that should be our focus in the times we are in. I personally look to Christ. He is the one who, like Bruce’s character in Surrogates or Morpheus and Neo in the Matrix, woke me up, who unplugged me from the system – the fake programming and gave me new eyes to see what a fake life I was living and what a fake world I was living in. Sin had corrupted the hard drive making it difficult for individuals such as myself to function.
Even if you are not a Christian, I still say – unplug! Become aware of the corruption, the manipulation, the social programming. I asked God to step in, wipe the hard drive clean so I could start again afresh. It is not through ‘works’ or the ‘workers’ that we are saved – but by faith in Christ. Hit the save button now! Turn to the creator of the original operating system and ask for a reboot, for yourself individually and for the world as a whole. This new world order doesn’t need to be about controls and social distancing, being drugged, chipped and traced – it can be about love, joy, peace, true freedom in Christ and hope in a world originally made perfect but corrupted by the sin of man made greed and power. Don’t let the pharmaceutical companies, the banks, the owners of the internet and the Elite in power isolate and control you – heed the signs people, wake up and unplug before we lose our humanity forever!
