I was familiar with and using ZeroDarkThirty – 0Dark30 – long before it became the name of the movie for the taking of Osama Bin Laden, so my use has nothing to do with that movie, although there is a connection. It has long been a military term that varied from being an unspecified time between midnight and dawn to one a half hour after midnight. Military missions have long been conducted at night for obvious reasons, many just before dawn.
My thought for it was that nearly dawn period. A time when those awake are being numbed by the need for sleep, and a time when those waking are still numbed by sleep. Our body clock makes it so. I have spent many hours on projects overseas and at home on that graveyard shift so I know what it is like.
One saying that hints at the intrinsic meaning related to this and is often used around difficult times is; “It is always darkest before the dawn.”
We are living in dark days, probably the darkest in human existence. People are asleep concerning the society within which they live. We have been lulled; by our politicians, by our media and by our courts.
We have been lulled by an infectious evil that has pervaded all of society. We knew it was happening to some extent. We may have said something, but its continual creep just seemed to keep coming and rolling over us. Some places we tried to turn the tide but we felt alone, marginalized.
The destructive seeds of everyone has rights under a democracy caused us to turn inward, closer to family and friends. We hoped it would pass. We worked, paid bills, lived by the law and tried to make ends meet. All the while there was this gnawing down inside, things are not right. We just kept descending into this craziness. Wrong was now right and right was now wrong. Political correctness ate us up and put us into a slavery that caused us to shut up and turn away. Our freewill was not free anymore.
But there came a man who spoke differently, said what we wanted to say, said that wrong was not right and suddenly we began to wake up, pull off the cobwebs and feel hope and life again. Some of us could not believe where we have been.
God was moving and he had chosen a man to be a catalyst, a lightning rod, a wrecking ball to crash the veil of evil and wake people up to their need to fight against this evil and to find their salvation before God burns the whole place down.
I believe Donald Trump is that man. The man for this time. God’s instrument for the now.
There was a time;
Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
But now we are at the end.
Joh_3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
The darkness is this; men’s evil deeds fueled by satan and his demonic hordes.
God is on the move. Escape from darkness to light is only possible through a belief is Jesus Christ.
Rom_13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Joh_14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Joh_3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Col_1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
ZeroDarkThirtyBlog looks at instances of the world’s darkness and contrasts God’s light.
My blogs have a Christian perspective on what is happening in society.
I do not consider or present myself as a prophet only a child of God awake to His Person and Kingdom.
