The More Things Change…

You know the rest of the saying.

I am still choosing between two books to begin my reading mentioned in the previous post, so this posting doesn’t really have anything to do with that.I am currently reading through a book/booklet (only 83 pages) by R.I. Humberd (who I know nothing about) titled “God’s Man and Satan’s Man In Final Conflict”.

I do not know when the book was published but it seems that Humberd lived between 1893 and 1965, so it was published sometime ago.

At any rate I mention this all because of part of what I read in this booklet tonight and made me think of tonight’s debate and all the other current happenings in the nation and the world, I thought Humberd’s words interesting when considering the above mentioned.

The first block of quotation is the lead in to the part I found interesting when considering as I mentioned, current issues/topics.

When the fulness of the time was come God sent forth His Man. The world rejected Him, and sent back the word to heaven, “We will not have this man rule over us.”

Satan’s man is soon to appear, and it is written, “ALL that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life” (Rev. 13:8).

Let us remind ourselves that A-L-L does not spell S-O-M-E.

All in England the United States, Germany and all over the earth will worship Satan’s man.

The following words are the ones that made me think of the evenings debate, etc…
In specific the words that I have underlined at the very end.

At first this might seem impossible, but let some man be able to solve the earth’s problems, and he will become irresistibly popular over night.

Might we not see some tendencies, in society today, that are paving the way for an enthusiastic reception for Satan’s man?

The world is bidding for a man to solve its financial problems.

Factories are closed, the markets are glutted with merchandise; business is at a standstill; millions are idle.

Mighty intellects are grappling with the knotty problems; great brains are dumb before an impossible task; suffering humanity stands ready to crown a human saviour.

I wonder, were those we saw debating this evening the “mighty intellects”?
If so, we might be in trouble folks. 🙂

Don’t tell me as we look at this bailout and the simply ignorant demand for universal health care, energy independence, and saving “mother earth” that at least in lower case letters we are not looking to the government as our saviour.
