More antidotes to the Beast (2)

Approvingly nodding as she samples my refreshing ‘pick-me-up’ drink.
“Mmmm, let me know what you put in this. I could have this every day.”


before I get any further, the contents of Carol’s mouth empty over my sink.

“Mimi, that’s feral! You don’t feed people grass!”

I shrug and grab her glass as well.
Yum, two for me today.

Shaking her head from side to side.
“About the mark of the Beast.”

“What about it?”
Sipping my yummy pick-me-up.

“You reckon, just listening to certain songs will get you the mark?”

“What do you reckon?”

I guess it makes sense. Whatever you fill your head with and whatever you sing along with…

“Makes sense to me. I don’t like people blasting that loud rough stuff into my ears, it gives me the creeps.”

“Never really gave it much thought, to be honest. I like turning the music up loud when I’m cleaning the house. Don’t really care what’s on as long as it is loud with a groovy tune.”

“Whatever works for you, Carol. I like instrumentals. That way I don’t have to figure out what my mind is being influenced by, or should I say poisoned with?

“That’s a bit rough.”

“You were worried about getting the mark of the Beast, right?”

“Well, everyone is talking about it.”

“Sure. If you don’t want to line up for this mark. Stay away from music feeding you a scenario you don’t want to be part of.”

“I guess.”

“Find a leader, a shepherd to guide you. I’ll share my favourite with you.

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes to lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness f
or His Name sake.
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil.
For thou art with me.
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me,
in the presence of my enemies.
Thou anoinst my head with oil.
My cup it runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall
follow me all the days of my life.
And I will dwell in the House of the Lord.
Forever. Forever.
Psalm 23.

It’s my favourite.

Who are you following? Our Heavenly Father and His Son? Or are you following earthly idols? Wherever your idols are going, is where you’ll end up too.

All good, as long as you enjoy the journey and are looking forward to the destination.
