Do We Really Mean It When We Say Happy New Year?….Do You?
With only a few hours of this year left 2018 is starting to feel really crowded
Right Now I Am Looking Forward To The Wide Open Spaces Of The New Year 2019
Will 2019 bring us all peace and prosperity or doom and gloom? No one can really tell. If it is left up to the politician and the ones who rule the world then I have not much hope for any of us. The current rulers of the world, and I am not talking about the governments, have only their own selfish and evil interests at heart and will never create a world of peace and goodwill for us all. There is talk about war everywhere, even good people are not left alone to live their lives in peace and are manipulated and forced daily into a new way of thinking. Yet it seems there is nothing the ordinary man woman or child can do to change that.
I am starting to understand why God finally decided to destroy the world. For he knew there was no way the people would change, so the best was just to wipe everyone out and start again with Noah and his family. For if all that is prophesied in the Bible comes true then looking around me is it not time for the world to be destroyed again and this time by fire? I for one would never be able to make that call, can you ? I, as do many other people who live between all the heartbreak and sorrow of each new day have to find a happy place somewhere, even if it’s in our hearts. For if we are happy in our hearts no one alive can change that. We believe that our God will sort out the good from the bad, and as stated in our Our Lords Prayer, deliver us from evil.
“As we all stand on the eve of a new year are we better off in many ways than our own good people were a hundred years ago ?”
100 Years ago the world was at War War, a war started only for the sake of successfully changing the world. The first World War where thousands upon thousands of young men were to die for no other reason but to change the world from the old to the new. Britain won that war with the help of their allies which included my Grandfather who was a Corporal in that war. It is so sad, that he could have died in the great war for Britain, Europe and America yet today I who proudly carry his very same name cannot leave South Africa and go and live and work in the very countries my Grandfather fought to protect and almost gave his life for.
100 years ago the Boer Nation name was to be changed by the invaders Great Britain, to the Afrikaners, to forcefully try to divide and conquer forever the Boer Nation, who were still in mourning. It is just over 100 years ago since the British murdered over half the Boer Nations children and raped and killed almost 10000 Boer woman in Nazi like concentration camps in the Republic’s of the Transvaal and the Orange Free State, now stolen from the Boer Nation and included into the new lawless South Africa. That war was started so that the gold that was discovered in the Republic of the Transvaal could be taken by the invaders, and that at all costs. Thousands of good people from Britain and South Africa, yes both sides of the war, just like you and me, died for that plan to have worked, and as always, it did.
So today are we really a little better off than we were 100 years ago? After all we are not being invaded by marching armies any more, we are just being killed in the safety of our own beds in our own home towns and cities. We should be thankful that at least we don’t all have to go to a foreign country to be killed anymore.
With all that said, today there are Billions of people living on this planet, and the ones like you and me, hopefully, will all take a positive attitude and be thankful that our ticket has not yet been called. For now we are all hopefully safe and happy in our own little space, perhaps like me, not my happy space, but nevertheless safe for now, living and breathing on this wonderful planet we all call home.
In closing I want to stress that I am not negative or depressed about the future, I am just someone who thinks he knows what is real, what is not real, what is a fact and what is not a fact. People who live in a dream world always wake up shocked and traumatized by reality.
I wish every single living person on this entire planet a wonderful and happy New Year and if you are intending to do something bad to someone take the time to consider this, that today it is them you do it to, tomorrow it will be you they do it too.
