Bob Dylan wrote that song in 1963; it was released in 1964. Times were a-changin but not for the better.
Did Bob Dylan know the Supreme Court would outlaw prayer in public school as he wrote those lyrics in 1963?
Around the corner in August of 1969 arrived Woodstock. As a student in high school the rumors were “who is going to Woodstock?” It was the hall-talk, locker-jargon and classroom disruptions. The festival was the “place” to go according to the druggies and rock-n-rollers.
Looking back Woodstock was a festival made in hell organized by Satan himself. His deceptive influence had ushered in a generation of hippies who drank, smoked anything that could burn, free sex and ugly clothes. In the last few years those ugly clothes made it to our stores once again bringing back the memories of that mud filled event.
I didn’t understand what could be so great about going to an outdoor sing-a-long on a dairy farm with no showers, few outhouses and 3 days of simmering heat. The smell must have been rank. The trash was probably piled high of used drug needles, empty beer bottles, cigarette/weed butts and leftover ugly clothes from those who ended up naked. And attendees left announcing they had been a part of the greatest music event in history.
Was God there? Did he attend this music fest of youth subculture?
Probably. But for different reasons.
He was there answering prayers of many parents of those who went.
He brought his angels to ward off demons of death.
He made his presence known to the devil himself as a warning.
2012 marked 42 years since that 3 day bacchanalia.
And the times they are a-changin once again and it has nothing to do with Woodstock.
Sept of 2009 marked a major era of what the Jewish calendar calls the Ayin Season.
There are shifts occurring in the atmosphere. We will be given new vision or open doors that were not there before. God will give us the ability to see above that which we have not seen before.
What have we experienced over the last 12 months? A barrage of corruption gone wrong.
IRS oversight scandal
NSA spy scandal
Associated press investigation: James Rosen
ATF Fast and Furious
GSA scandal of abusing $823,000 of tax payer funds
War on Christmas
(To name a few)
Do you think these fraudulent and dishonest accounts came to light all by themselves?
And what about the men who died in Benghazi? Or Fast and Furious?
As the devil turns up the heat, God is pouring on loads of Holy Spirit fire to stamp him out.
Psalm 34: 15 “The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry.”
The shift is almost tangible. The air is filled with a new kind of warfare; a battle of supernatural proportions with the “Commander” (Isaiah 55:4) of all humanity leading the way.
According to this Jewish era, this season will bring with it a fresh guidance from God. He will mark the ground before us with his own steps. He will release power unknown before by bringing his people to doors of opportunity.
We will come to closed doors of our faith, health or strength only to be told to open it. On the other side will be strength, might and authority unleashed upon those who follow the “Power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1: 24)
Could it be the “Rewarder” of the faithful has heard our cries? (Hebrews 11: 6)
Could it be the “Spirit of Truth” (John 14:1, 15:26, 16:13) is blowing a wind so forceful people will be knocked over by the love of God!
