A bit of wisdom from one who once aspired to being a man of the cloth: Reading Revelations in the Bible should NOT be undertaken immediately before going to sleep!
Although the overall news—the return of Jesus Christ—is powerfully good, the description of things to come before one rests at the Right Hand of God in eternal glory can be unsettling, to say the least.
So unsettling that frightening dreams may ensue, thereby interrupting any chance one might have of enjoying blissful sleep.
Of course, with the tyrannical president and Congress now encumbering America, exposure to unsettling news is almost impossible to escape. It’s what Obama and the Democrats do for a living, all in the name of “Progressive” liberation!
Liberation from one’s wealth, freedom, individuality, and common sense, that is!
From Obamacare; to the Bundy Ranch armed invasion by government supported by the Majority Leader of the US Senate owing to a vested desire to reward China with a solar power facility AND to enrich offspring and other familial interests; to $17 trillion in federal debt; to incendiary rhetoric from the Minority Leader of the US House intended to incite a race war in an election year, to the general dissatisfaction with the direction in which the nation is headed—the news from Washington D.C. is almost all dreadful, especially for those who believe that limited government and a free and vibrant electorate are necessary to fulfill the “pursuit of happiness.”
Compared to all the negative news about the misdeeds of evil men and women in Washington, D.C., the descriptions in Revelations, while frightening, can also be exhilaratingly refreshing and uplifting!
Indeed, news of wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, blood moons, and the like can be seen as hopeful signs that the End Times are nigh, that the decadence and moral decay which permeates the human spirit will soon (?) be disposed of in accordance with eternal and spiritual law.
Thus, rejoice when the ground shakes, rattles, and rolls, or when Barack Obama tells another lie!
It just may be the Creator’s way of reminding the faithful that “this too shall pass!” in the fullness of time!
