Regarding what has already transpired, I am certain only of the following:
- the spiritual war has become a hot war; one that has been initiated by and is being fueled by evil
- evil has forced these events upon the world, which means the events themselves are not fundamentally Good.
- Good can arise from current events, but that still does not make what is happening now fundamentally Good
- one goal of the spiritual war was the spiritual devastation of churches in the West
- another goal of the spiritual war involves the constricting or collapsing of economic and financial systems in a manner that will inevitably affect everyone
- power grabs and the expansion of Ahrimanic control are happening nearly everywhere
This much appears obvious, at least to me, but when it comes to specifics, all I see is a storm of chaos. A giant ball of confusion. The second something begins to make sense, something else comes along and dissolves it all into nonsense.
The official narratives lack cohesion and clarity. The unofficial narratives often reveal more about their authors than they do about the current situation. There are as many expert opinions as there are experts. The conspiracy theories all contain massive, gaping holes of incoherence. Everything has been reduced to wild speculation or blatant dishonesty.
Whatever unified, overarching plot the Establishment may have been following - assuming there ever was one - appears to have unravelled. The various competing factions within the Establishment appear to be at each other's throats. Disjointedness and desperation are evident both in their words and their deeds.
The reigning confusion could be purposive, at least at the supernatural level. Perhaps the demonic powers are torturing their servants through various tricks and betrayals. Or perhaps they are only allowing their servants to proceed on a need-to-know basis. Whatever the case, the demonic powers appear to be keeping their henchmen in the dark intentionally.
On the other hand, the reigning confusion could be a sign of possible conflicts among the demons themselves. Or perhaps a sign of Good counteracting and thwarting evil at the supernatural level - slowing things down, buying time.
As I said at the beginning of this post, I really don't know. And there is no consolation in pointing out that no one else really knows. Everything and everyone is shrouded in fog.
Yet this confusion has led to some clarity - at least for me. The greater the disorientation in the world, the greater my own personal orientation toward the Divine. At the moment, I very much believe that the Divine does not want me to understand the details of what is currently transpiring - not because the Divine wants to keep me in the dark, but rather that the Divine yearns to defend from wading too deep into the darkness.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I believe current events were initiated by evil and are being driven primarily by evil. The chaos and complexity of nearly everything happening now are hallmarks of evil. Unlike the demonic powers that seem intent on drowning everyone in chaos and complexity, I believe the Divine wishes to shield us from the chaos and complexity. Not out of any wish to keep us in ignorance, but out of understanding that knowing specifics right now might do more harm than good, at least at the spiritual level. An underlying understanding of the big picture is more important than comprehending the details.
I suppose this is where hope, faith, and love come into the picture. I have hope the Divine will ultimately prevail; I have faith the Divine will help me understand all I need to understand; and I know the Divine will do this from a position of love.
I really don't know what's going on, but I have faith that I will know what I need to know when I need to know it. On top of that, I am convinced I know everything I need to know right now.
