“If thieves came to you, if robbers in the night—oh, what a disaster awaits you!—would they not steal only as much as they wanted? If grape pickers came to you, would they not leave a few grapes? Obadiah 5 (NIV).
So, I’m one of the Twitter users who was permanently deleted last week. I didn’t incite violence; I didn’t libel anyone; I didn’t cause or call for anyone’s harm. I DID deserve it, however, because I said unkind things of a political nature to people who, I selfishly thought, deserved to hear them. In doing so, I incurred the wrath of the Twitter masters and they banned me. It’s their platform and they may do as they please.
I was one of thousands, maybe millions, whose accounts were deleted last week. From the hue and cry by my fellow ex-Tweeters, you’d think it was a cataclysm. It wasn’t. And, from the hue and cry by the media, government officials, and political n’er-do-well’s, you’d think last week’s protest in Washington was incomparable insurrection. It wasn’t. And, from those who now wonder what’s in store for America since unseen dark forces boldly affect our speech, you’d think it was the end of the world. Again, it wasn’t.
In fact, according to Obadiah (and every other Bible prophet), none of what we’re going through now is anywhere near as bad as what’ll happen at the end of the world. Maybe that’s starting now; we’ll find out. If so, be ready. Confess, repent, and let Jesus take control of you. That matters so much more than this blog, our jobs, Joe Biden, or anything else happening here on the Third Rock. Certainly more than Twitter. It matters because, when the end comes, it will be terrible for those who do not have hope – the promise – in the Lord.
In those days, the space program won’t matter. The presidency won’t matter. The mainstream media won’t matter. Social media, NFL kneeling, political differences, internet speeds, or COVID-19 vaccines won’t matter. It won’t be like the Black Death of the 1300s, and it won’t be like living through the Holocaust, and it won’t be like touring the Cambodia killing fields amidst the bones of 2 million innocents.
Oh no, my friend, you know it will be much worse. Obadiah predicts it here. The masters of Twitter are like petty robbers, leaving crumbs behind. The master they unwittingly serve, however, has much worse in store, yet he is already defeated. Before that happens, things will get much harder. Jesus foretells of it. Without hope in Him, things will get much, much worse. He is the only escape. Go ahead and Tweet that for me, please.

Lord Jesus, our only Savior, forgive my sins. Have mercy on us sinners. And abide with us until Your return.
