A sonic boom is a loud noise caused when an aircraft moving at supersonic speed, which is equal to exceeding the speed of sound, generates a shock wave. Not only do you get the sound, but you may feel the vibrations on the ground as well. I remember my mother scrambling to keep the glassware from falling off the edge of her glass shelves. By the same token, we are feeling the sonic speed of time rush past with a blast. We are scrambling to find our places so the vibrations do not knock us off the edge.
The baby boom generation has been described variously as a "shockwave". By the utter force of its numbers, the boomers were a demographic bulge which modified society as it passed through it. The given time frame of the "Boomer" generation is around 1946-1964, however this is merely an estimation.
If you are old enough to remember back, many of the television programs were geared to the theme of population control. After the generation boom there was fear that the U.S. would become like China: more people less jobs equals poverty. There was a great thrust to trim the amount of births. Society created two remedies:
1. Feminist Movement: Get women out of the homes and into the work places. Give women careers outside the home and degrade a homemaker and mother as no career. Make equal bread winners, or better yet, hire more women and keep the cost down. Women became fertile in the work places with less time to become fertile as mothers.
2. Abortion: Eliminate the future potential for overpopulation through abortion.
The Feminist generation accomplished what it set out to do. Women became controllers of birth determining whether a child would live or die since she was the ultimate container. She could call this growth within a mass or a baby all depending on her frame of mind and conveniences. The media, influenced by the government's agenda, would say that abortion was for those abused by rape, incest or that the health of the mother, none of which was in the high percentile of actual reasons. The media also played up the butchery, backroom abortionists while portraying the women as poor defenseless waifs subject to the sexual abuses, then paying with their lives in these dark holes by villainous doctors. This theme changed in time as people became less sensitized and millions of babies were either chemically burned or dismembered and removed from society's obligations.
Christianity, while sending missionaries to the farthest of continents, has in many cases put her hand to a vote of abortion ignoring its slaughter of babies. Abortion is not considered a determining factor in choosing our leaders as it once was. We have come a long wayBaby-boomer!
The Baby-boomer has done much in the strides of convenience and luxuries of life. They have eaten from the delicacies of spas, room service and Wall Street investments, which made our country a land of opportunity to die forthat is, for our forefathers to die for leaving the fortunes of their sacrifice for us to squander.
It is amazing to me how many people think that we are slowly but surely losing our beloved "America" when the truth be known, it was killed with the first life of one single child to legal abortion! Look at how the Scripture depicts death of innocent blood:
And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?
And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.
And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;
That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation. Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
There is another sonic boom rumbling. Do you hear it? Do you see it with your understanding? The day of wrath is come, O ye Baby-boomers, and how will you live without your luxuries O ye pampered generation? For now it is the Baby-boomer's lives upon the altar of sacrifice. This generation has afforded itself every luxury but foresight and pro-vision to see that our babies were the only factor which was the saving of our generation's future. Alas, it is discovered all too late that we have killed off our remedy. Do you still puzzle over what I mean to communicate? Look at the recipe altogether and see if you can figure it out:
RECIPE FOR POPULATION CONTROL
1. First you convert all internal growths, cists, and tumors etc. into one reference called "mass" which may be surgically removed.
2. Next you get the Supreme Court to declare an unborn fetus as a "mass".
3. Add just enough saline to season.
4. You have thinned out the future generation of overpopulation.
There are now more guests than servings to go around this social for security. In order to serve everyone you must cut back on the guest list of "Baby-boomers".
RECIPE FOR "CHANGE"
1. Get a motivational speaker to lull these "Boomers" into thinking they are increasing their benefits while underneath they are:
2. Limiting medical procedures deemed too expensive and opt for a lesser effective route.
3. Stating that many procedures would be futile on those 60 years or older.
4. Making care access go beyond a treatable time constraint.
5. Having counselors aid the comfortable death idea rather than an actual health aid to save.
The solution to an aborted generation is to target the mass of "Boomers", but do not call it "mass" any longercall it "Government Run Healthcare".
Bake at Global Warming until completely done, and none are left for serving.
I hope this writing is like a sonic boom and has jolted you from sleep. What American dream is it for which we cry to lose? The one of apathetic luxury pretending we are still one nation under God or the sacrifice in blood of those willing to die for their children's generations? No, my friend, we have made our children sacrifice for our needs and now we find ourselves in payday or payback. What Baby-boomers have sown will now "boomerang" back in a harvest we never thought. The boom is coming at sonic speed, and we are not ready. Someone has to clean up the mess we made. This generation coming up must balance the books with a few well-placed leaders from the Baby-boomers who will finagle the resources to survive it. These cunning boomers will point to the target while holding the "get out of jail free" card. The Baby-boomers have been awakened and are ready to take these cunning lawyers of government down with the ship.
Christians will have become as the Gideon generation for thinning out the troops. Some boomers will be reduced by fear, and others will be eliminated by not knowing their enemy. There will be a remnant left who are fearless champions, who will bring this enemy down to the ground and cut off its head just as David. It will be a sad time for the boomers, but a great time for those who become champions of the faith.
Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:
Boomers, I put this choice to you, and you will need to rise or fall to the occasion:
1. Choose to do nothing and you will be in bondage to the fear of what is coming. Many hearts will fail for the fear becoming incapacitated.
2. Choose to awaken and see that we are in a new era of living within God's Kingdom and righteousness ushered in by Jesus and become a champion of faith. You will give your life to the Kingdom and be "spiritually raptured" not regarding the cost to your flesh. [What is done in the spirit first is manifest in the physical.] You will have given your life rather than having it taken from you. One day very soon your will hear a mighty sonic booming voice say, "Well done thou faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord." Matt 25:21
[If you want to look in the mirror of a champion, you may read all about it in Joel 2:1-16]
I know that this is not an easy word to hear. The time for comfortable words is over. There are things coming upon the earth in sonic speed with a great boom, but there are supersonic champions who will wait upon the LORD and renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
