No More Sunshine on Our Shoulders? :: By Dave Hubley

(There is a special message at the end of this article for those who might happen to read this and do not have Jesus in their life and are looking for peace and a way to better understand the present-day insanity and confusion.)

Perhaps this commentary might seem a bit overly speculative. Perhaps not.

I will leave it up to you to decide.

I have been watching the machinations of evil for about 30 years since I became a follower of Christ and was blessed with the gift of the love of all of God’s Word and, particularly, His prophetic Word.

The need to be a Watchman on the Wall has resulted in greater awareness of the need to witness to a world that is utterly blind to the coming consequences of sin and the steadily increasing level of evil.

Never have these machinations been more blatant than they are at the present time.

And, I believe, never have they been more subtle.

Climate change/global warming/global cooling/global lying: They all seem to be part of a larger endeavor that is accelerating on an exponential curve that is now nearly vertical.

One of the strategies appearing, seemingly recently, is the idea that by dimming the amount of sunlight that reaches the earth, many “harmful effects” of “climate change” could be mitigated.

Of course, of these, reduction of carbon emissions is the most prominent “benefit.” If only those horrid carbon emissions could be eliminated, everything related to climate change would be resolved, and “we” can then “save the planet.”

Coincidentally, 18% of human bodies are composed of carbon. Might that provide a clue as to some aspects of “globalist thinking”?

What appears to be the real focus and intent of this “scientific approach” to the fantasy of man-caused climate change is to reduce the number of “useless eaters,” as some people are designated to be by those same globalists.

Other consequences carefully omitted from the promotion of this evil tactic consist, in part, of:

  • Reduced sunlight resulting in worldwide food crop reduction/failures.
  • Reduced photosynthesis affecting ALL plant life on earth. (Even dandelions!)
  • The fact that we humans depend upon oxygen emissions from all those plants in order to breathe.
  • The fact that plants of all varieties emit that oxygen and, in turn, require carbon dioxide to “breathe.”

The fact that these results and conditions, and the control of them, seem to run a parallel theme with worldwide starvation, population reduction, subjugation and control of all of humanity just seems like an amazing coincidence, doesn’t it?

And now, America has officially joined the Orchestra of Evil: The Band of Baal, whose real conductor is the Father of Lies.

The “we don’t need you, God” musical celebration of humanism and hubris is exploding with new members.

As I read the above-linked article, the words of a song released in 1971 that has remained very popular ever since popped into my mind.

When that happened, it caused me to consider another far more subtle but very devious goal that might also be intended by reducing the warming, comfort, and joy that accompanies a lovely, sunny day.

I’m not positive why this song popped into my head when I read this article and also what prompted this commentary, but I’m pretty sure I know.

The applicable lyrics are below:

“Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy,
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry.
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely,
Sunshine almost always makes me high.”
John Denver: Poems, Prayers & Promises: 1971

I think John Denver summed our nature up well with his lyrics in this hopeful song.

Consider, for a moment, the effects of a string of cloudy, dreary, and overcast skies that continue for an extended number of days.

Now consider that condition as if it became the permanent reality of every single day. Of it being endless, dreary and gray, day after endless day. Consider the psychological impact that would result, piled on top of: “you will own nothing, and you will like it.”

Perhaps our “beneficent global controllers” would only require hazy and dim days to achieve their purposes but still not permit bright and sunny warmth.

Then, consider how encouraging it is when the sun finally breaks through the clouds, warms the heart, and restores the hopeful outlook on life itself, and the joy that lifts the spirit when that hopefulness springs to life.

Would it be any surprise that evil should seek to crush the human spirit at every opportunity, and could this not be one of them?

God expresses a human need for joy and light, as only He can:

“And he shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises,
A morning without clouds,
Like the tender grass springing out of the earth,
By clear shining after rain” (2 Samuel 23:4).

Could it also be that evil would have a second devious desire to accomplish?

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork” (Psalm 19:1).

I always feel the awe and wonder of God when I look at the magnificence of His stars in a clear night sky, and that He knows the name of each one fills me with longing for Him. If the sky is not clear, the stars are not visible, thus further injury to the human spirit.

Satan, the real author of God-hating and human-hating ideas, knows this all too well.

But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).

Satan, the actual present-day world system manager, is the author of hopelessness and human misery, and he hates the Gospel and every part of the Word of God.

In 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 above, we see that the evil one seeks to retain ownership of “those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”

Is Satan that petty that he would devise yet another way to augment the world-dominating ambitions of evil men and, at the same time, steal a little more hope and joy from this life; to add more insult to injury; to cover over the Glory of God from view?

I think it would not be a surprise.

It would be a very devious way of killing two birds with one stone (as the old saying goes).

And killing is another goal of the evil one.

Killing of both people and hope.

But let us not lose sight of the fact that God is still in control, and this evil cannot exceed what He will allow it to. He will allow it to accomplish His plans by His own authority. He has moved heaven and earth because He:

“desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4).

God has made it clear that His Gospel will shine through in spite of any effort to prevent it.

“No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you” (Isaiah 54:17).

“I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18).

And He has also made it clear that:

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).

So, is it a stretch to think that one of the less obvious but no less evil goals is the attempt to rob people of hope and joy in order to more easily accomplish control and subjugation?

Is it a form of Stockholm Syndrome but in a worldwide application?

[Stockholm syndrome: psychological response wherein a captive begins to identify closely with his or her captors, as well as with their agenda and demands. Copied from:] Emphasis added by me.

It is clear in the Word of God and can be observed in the state of this world that Satan wants all to come to hopelessness and death in direct and intentional contrast to repentance and God’s Salvation.

There is always hope when we come into the Glorious Son-shine of the Gospel and when we choose to make Jesus the Lord of our Life.

Hope is only as good as He in Whom it is placed.

Free yourself from the chains of slavery to evil. Stop trusting in man.

Embrace the Light of Christ and live.

I pray that if you have not yet done that, you will do it today.

The special message I promised you:

For anyone who may read this article and has not trusted in Jesus Christ and therefore has no hope or peace in your life:

You can have hope. You can have the peace that Jesus has promised to all who have made Him their Lord and Savior. The peace that passes understanding.

It requires that you come before God on His terms.

And, what are His terms according to His Word?

  • Genuine repentance (turning to God instead of continuing to reject or ignore Him).
  • Confession of sins (that you are a sinner and acknowledge that to God).
  • That you understand that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).
  • To acknowledge to God that you are unable to pay that debt.
  • Belief that Jesus Christ paid your death sentence for you on the cross.
  • To believe that Jesus is the Way, the only Way, that God has established by which humans may be saved from the consequences of their sin and rebellion.

God has made it absolutely clear that there is no one who comes before Him, under His terms, that will be refused.

  • No one: no race, no color, no country of origin, regardless of any previous belief system: no one.
  • No matter what your past sins have been, God can and WILL forgive you because He says He will.
  • Salvation is available to everyone without any exceptions.

If you put all your trust for salvation in Jesus, and Him only, you can follow that prayer up by simply saying, “Thank you, Father God, for hearing my prayer and saving me” because we can trust Him to keep His Word. He always has. He always will.

“Truly, Truly, I say to you that he who hears My words and believes the One who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned. He has crossed from death to life” (John 5:24).

There are no answers and there is no hope in the world by governments, organizations, politics or politicians. There are only lies and deception. But you can have the Truth and the peace you seek.

The answers are in the Word of God—The Bible. If you ask God, with all your heart, He will hear you.

“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
