Y2K (Here’s one from the archives….)

March 4, 2010

January 2000 – For the last couple of years, the secular media and the religious media have agreed on something, that Y2K was going to cause global problems. Aside from the current political administration and mainstream journalists, prominent religious figures have utilized their media organizations to bombard people with prophecies of doom and gloom regarding Y2K, i.e. – secret reports from “insiders,” eyewitness accounts of failed testing, and so-called experts in Biblical prophecy. Our military capabilities were going to fail. The stock market was going to crash. The world’s banking system was going to crumble. There was going to be global power outages, failed air traffic control computers, automobile computer failures, planes falling from the sky, trains crashing because the track switches were going to fail, OH MY GOD…RUN FOR THE HILLS! These religious icons of our society utilized their media organizations to again cause fear in people by the deceitful mishandling of scripture, thereby creating a crisis that their ignorant and unlearned followers would have to look to them to solve.

It was sad to watch, especially for those of us who truly love and understand AND BELIEVE God’s Word, and believe in the revelation manifestations of holy spirit. Millions, if not billions of dollars were wasted on the hoarding of fuel, food, generators, wood burning stoves, underground bunkers, and remote parcels of land to which to run and hide. Entire communities were built in the remotest of places to escape the chaos that was going to occur in the cities. What a pitiful demonstration of the lack of believing and understanding of God’s Word by these religious figures. What a pitiful demonstration of the gullibility of the masses and people’s willingness to believe anything that these religious icons of society tell them. What a deplorable waste of money and resources that could have been put to good use for the study and outreach of God’s rightly divided Word and the furtherance of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which genuinely helps people. More money was perhaps wasted on preparing for the aftermath of Y2K than was spent on investigating and correcting the problems that might occur. People always seem to want the end of the world without the return of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, ACCORDING TO GOD’S WORD!

Karl Marx is credited with having said, “religion is the opiate of the masses”. How true his words have been demonstrated to be. Religion can, in our modern vernacular, be said to be the crack-cocaine of the masses. It is a terrible addiction, worse than any physical drug and far more mind numbing and detrimental to the user.

The Truth of the Matter is stated in Deuteronomy 18:21 and 22, “And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.” This scripture needs to be heralded forth and believed!

As the date changed around the globe, it was interesting to watch the top mainstream journalists having nothing to talk about except the celebrations and other trivia, while really being geared up to report on global millennium bug catastrophes. It will be interesting next to see the response of the doom prophesying religious icons and their media organizations, after they wipe the egg off their faces. The retractions and apologies should be endless. (Yeah, sure.) They will most likely, somehow, figure out a way to take the credit, or weasel out from under their previous statements. Those who followed them ought not to allow them to get away with it, after dealing with their own shame.

The only Y2K “crisis” is that once again God, His Son, His Word and true Christianity has been made laughingstock in the minds of people by the countless numbers of Christians who have again been made to look foolish, making God’s Word look foolish, thereby making His Son and what Christianity truly is look foolish and lack credibility. God have mercy on those false prophets and all those who watch, listen to, support, or believe anything they say.

Those of us who understand and believe God’s Word have stood firm on the promises of God and His revelation, and have publicly stated that this was not going to be a global crisis on any scale. Small problems arose here and there as with anything man invents or controls, but certainly not the “doomsday” that was foretold by so many of the religious icons and their media organizations.

Jeremiah 28:9 states, “The prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the Lord hath truly sent him.”
