HELLO, and welcome to the new revamped website of Mary Cates.
It has taken some chutzpah to decide to transform my site, but in view of all that is happening in our country and around the world I believe it’s time. I’m stepping into a new focus by eliminating some of the old fluffy patterns of writing and putting a new theme to my blog. Definitely, it is time to write about what is vitally important! The culture and social challenges have become great in the last two years, as well as the threat from other countries. Many Scriptures are becoming more and more prevalent.
“We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12)
I am excited to welcome you and new followers into this new Epoch approach. The aim is that it will grow and please you as important day to day subjects and needs are focused upon. The aim is to encourage. I’m one drop in the bucket, but I look at it this way: if just a cup of water is placed in my hands, then that cup of water is what God desires of me. I believe that the talent God has given me to write four books means – keep writing – keep using what God has given you and try to make it count.
No doubt you are aware that the mainstream media is not delivering truth. Conservatives are not speaking out loud enough, and pulpits are virtually silent or just plain timid. We carry on our lives so that we don’t offend anyone.
As far back as 61 years ago, the words of an old English author and philosopher named Aldous Huxley, was right on the mark….
“There will be in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears – so to speak – producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them. They will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel [against] propaganda or brainwashing that will be enhanced by pharmacological [and political] methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.” Find this quote on Google under Huxley’s name.
COVID caused a crisis that has proven to world leaders that we can be controlled. I am convinced that they will use massive control again in the near future. Aldous Huxley was right. We are distracted – lulled to sleep by our apathy, and our obsessions with self and pleasure. I’m speaking to myself as well.
It may be that you and I are living in the End Times. There sure is a lot of buzz about it. The truth is that we cannot change God’s agenda regarding The End, but we can be alert and built up in faith to manage whatever is coming down the road.
I’ll be posting my first EPOCH article in just a few days. If you are not a “follower” please find the word FOLLOW in the margin and click on it so you will automatically receive posts in your email. Invite your friends to this website, too.
