2022! The world is on a merry-go-round
Go into the park and watch as many wait to get on a horse or other animal artifact on the carousel. The smiles and cheers go up like a crowd at a sports arena, each waiting to grab the ring as they circle around, saying daddy look at me.
How wonderful if those spinning around could get off their seats at the end of the ride, refreshed, excited, and looking for more amusements to enjoy.
Imagine, for a moment, that this carousel does not have little children or happy adults riding today. Those who chose to get on contain lost souls, the drug dealers, young assailants who’ve spent the night shooting people with weapons they stole, rapists who relish the fact no one cares any more. As the carousel begins to revolve the perpetrators' riding watch while the speed increases and their joy of an exciting afternoon turns into a hang on for their lives.
The faster they spin the more difficult it becomes to hang on, and little by little bodies begin to fly off into an abyss no one expected. These are the young who have been trapped by the desire for money they didn’t work for, sensual high from using drugs they were convinced would solve all the problems in life, and the money grabbers that use others for their own gain and pleasures.
Wake up America, we are in that amusement park and as spectators are watching the very society we helped create coming apart at the seams. Our willingness to allow the legislators we voted for to slowly tear down the morals we prayed for, but the demons of pleasure, wealth, and killers of the unborn have taken over our souls.
As the souls of the guilty are thrown off the merry-go-round they take with themselves all of our aspirations and hopes that fly away with them. No longer will our prayers be heard since they might be the adhesive that we allowed by our attitudes of the moral degradation in a let someone else take care of it.
This carousel is an essential tool that gathers the evil that has infiltrated our world and anyone who shares in the passengers’ desires for evil will become attached quickly to the empty seats. Our departure will become a path into an abyss reserved for those who have lost God’s call for mercy. It will be our choice!
