What did it mean, we wondered a short while ago, when a supposed “word of knowledge” from some years back — 2004 — had foreseen that “the politics of denial” would lead to a “plague”? “Heed this too,” it had said, to quote it more fully. “The politics of denial will be struck as with a plague. The smallest of what lives is precious in My sight.”
That was excerpted from a longer “message” in the lineage of what we have labeled the “1990 Prophecy” (every once in a while, the recipient passes along new such “words”; there have been just a handful, spaced over thirty years, in essence locutions or infusions of thoughts, presented for discernment only). We do not despise prophecy here (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21).
Most who responded believe, understandably — and predictably — that it relates to abortion. There are certain other elements to consider. One is that the “word of knowledge” came in the midst of the court and political battles over Terri Schiavo, who was denied life in 2005 (March 31 of the following year). Could it have had anything to do with that? Schiavo was “denied” at every level of the court system. Politicians stayed away from the case. Massive intervention by Congress and the White House never occurred (though the Bush brothers did fight, to an extent, on her behalf).
Or might it have had to do with humans and animals: the smallest of God’s creatures, which are being trampled upon — thrown into extinction every day — by modern, materialistic society? That’s asked because much of the prophecy had to do with destruction of or meddling with God’s Creation. Noted another part: “The world is now seriously out of conformance with the Will of God and what He created and intended. There are those who would reconfigure the very creatures He has formed, and who meddle with the texture of life. For this reason, the Lord will allow a huge reorientation.”
Are we not astray? And with the coronavirus scare/pandemic, are we not seeing a major opportunity for reorientation? Though not technically bubonic fever (the technical meaning of “plague”), the pandemic is similar to that. Or will some event arrive in the future that is like a plague or epidemic but not an actual one (“as with” can mean “such as” or “similar to”)?
With no further ado, let’s go to the mailbag:
Wrote a viewer named Mary Sill: “Likely, above all else, meaning the denial of the Faith which is in Christ’s official Church today. Christ has been denied, thus we’re struck by plague, even literally.”
“I think it is abortion,” says Barb VanWormer of the Pittsburgh area. “Politics of denial… The very denial of life and all that goes on in our own government over the issue of abortion. When it says ‘the smallest of what lives is precious in my sight,’ I think of babies.”+
“We are in a civil war, and government, as we know it, is gone until we have it out,” believes a viewer named Nancy from Ohio. “Are we ‘one nation under God’ or not?”
