I can’t help but feel we live in a modern day Exodus where those who actually are doing something to fix all the wrongs that’s been done to the people go unappreciated instead of taking the time to realize the ultimate prize that awaits them in the end.
When God, through Moses, helped his Israel people escape the land of their oppressors and promised them something was awesome waiting at the end of their journey it was met with relief, hope and expectations.
However, the people seemed to expect this would come easy, like an overnight switch from dire straits to paradise. Once they realized this was not the case as they encountered barren lands and waves of uncertainty, it didn’t take long before they started to whine. The appreciation of being rescued was promptly replaced by contempt and Moses had to somehow serve as a bridge between the rational and the irrational.
It wasn’t easy for Moses. Very little time passed before the very people he helped rescue from their oppressors started to behave in the same selfish manner as those whom they fled from. Through his brother, Aaron, they had a golden calf sculpted as an idol they can pray to. The calf was promptly destroyed and the people repented for the wrong done, but it didn’t take long before they reverted back to what is best described as selfish, impatient, childish behavior.
You see this more than in just Exodus. Throughout the timeline of the bible you come across stories of people becoming so confused and so messed up that they honestly can’t tell the difference between right and wrong. All hell breaks loose and of those who feel it as so cry out while the ignorant remain clueless as they plod along.
Sadly, of the few who dare to do good they get ridiculed for it. Some were even tortured and put to death. Jesus Christ is the most evident example of this as the ultimate Savior of mankind was viewed as if he were nothing more than vermin by those who couldn’t see (or accept) the truth for what it really was.
It’s no different today. After years of people whining that things never change, finally someone comes along to make those changes happen. He even warned it wouldn’t be easy, but it’d be necesary.
Already at this point, just as it has been throughout mankind’s history since the dawn of time, the fight of good against evil is a tedious, uphill battle. All odds are typically stacked against the righteous, despite his/her flaws, are doing everything they can to do right.
What’s tragic is those who claim to be good people don’t see it as it happens. It’s easier for them to remain blind to truths as the rest of the world around them incites hate, anger and wild stories with tongues convincing enough to keep the spiritually immature and dim-witted unaware.
I have very good family and friends that I can see are still running around with blinders on, despite my best attempts to snap them out of it. It actually breaks my heart that those closest to me just don’t get it, nor do they seem to want to.
All this has me recalling a line that was quoted in a show called Babylon 5. It was quoted by a character known as Lady Morella.
And how right she is! Jesus was not appreciated during his living days, at least not at the level he deserved. It was only after he died that reality sunk in he was put to death because he was right, not because he was in the wrong. The evils saw to it that he was hated and misunderstood to such a degree they managed to convince the masses who were too clueless for their own good to see reality for what it really was at the time.
And it’s still not any different today. Too many people blindly believe what’s thrown in front of them instead of separating themselves from the deception in an effort to figure out the truths on their own.
So as the great evils continue to deceive the people, they are delighted in the classic divide and conquer tactics that have always been proven successful since the dawn of time. People are no smarter today than they were when a certain pair of characters from Genesis thought siding with the Tree of Knowledge over the Tree of Life would elevate them to greatness.
I see clean through most of it. I’m not arrogant enough to think I see through all of it as I know that’s impossible right now. Too much deception and too much division makes it rather difficult to discern who really has the answers among man and who doesn’t. This is why I’ve come to realize the Holy Bible, Father and Jesus Christ are the only truths worth paying attention to and with due diligance. Whether you care an ounce towards what is deemed as Christianity or not is quite frankly not my concern. That’s between you, whatever you believe in and what fate has in store for you. All I can do from my end is hope you figure it all out before it’s too late.
