Simply as a matter of accountability, I report that the laptop with one added accessory (a dongle with extra ports) has been ordered. Everything should be here by 27 December. I’ll take pictures of the unboxing for your amusement, and let you know how well it’s working. Its official name will be “harvest.”
Last night I had some time to fill and, on a whim, decided to check out sci-fi movies on YouTube. Some of you know I generally dislike movies. That’s because most of what comes out of the movie industry is not just Westernized, but it’s usually the worst of Western immorality. For once, I found something I actually liked: The Host. It was panned by the critics, which is a good start. It’s basically an alien invasion from critters that borg humans as hosts and take over the world. It’s all so nice and Utopian, except that some humans resist and make it tough. Also, a small number manage to escape this bonding process. The story follows one resistant host gal who manages to convince her occupier to change sides and see that being human isn’t such a bad thing. There’s little that even approaches risqué in the movie, but the thing that got my attention was the high value on persons, trust and kindness. There’s a strong feudal shepherd figure in the movie. It’s rare that something out of Hollywood even approaches the values we teach.
Despite some barriers, I’m going to try riding out to Draper today and catch the last bit of unexplored shoreline. If it works out, there’ll be pictures later today.
This isn’t just a little sparkle in the sky for me. It’s more like a tectonic shift with all the shaking and fire that none of us could escape. I’m naming my laptop “harvest” to represent its purpose, and the utter certainty that grips me: God is going to bring a harvest of souls to our heart-led way of religion. Given what I know of human nature and history, it can come only when the population is driven from their comfort zone. That means some tribulation. It occurs to me this is a good time to finalize big purchases like that laptop, because what I see coming will make using funds like that quite difficult. God will advise you; your heart will know His plans for you. Still, it’s my prophetic calling to warn you to be ready. He’s bringing His wrath to America; there’s no way to know when things will start to shake and crumble. There’s no way to predict what He will leave standing, only that His wrath will be measured, tempered by mercy. Whatever it is, it will be enough to see a harvest of souls for us. Be ready.
