Matthew 24:42 “…stay woke…”

We are called to love our neighbors – to have a social conscience. But the spirit of the age, dressed in the guise of high community-mindedness, loves a jingle, a shibboleth – almost as much as it loves its idols.

The stay woke mentality is based more in the manipulation of guilt and desire to control – not just how people think – but what they think. Fear the racism that is inherent in you. Fear your white privilege – its the mere circumstances of skin color and unmerited blessing  – that cause you to be so full of hate. “You don’t feel hatred?! You’re too asleep to see it? Stay woke! Fear your subconscious – its what’s wrong with the world!”

There is a boogie man behind every turn in progressive Ideology. As Calvin said “ the more outspoken a person is in his contempt of God, the more startled he will be by the sound of a leaf falling from a tree!”Indeed there is one prowling around; there is in fact something terrible crouching at our door. But it’s not implicit bias or closet racism or insensitivity or skin tone privilege. Its sin. There is in fact something horribly wrong with us and it’s idol worship.

The stay woke thing has as much to do with real equity and justice as abortion has to do with real choice and freedom.

The babies don’t have a choice or chance…but hey, stay woke y’all – there are art instillations out there repressing people[1].

The populace is sleeping but it’s the sleep of death. And unless people start waking up, there is something worse than banana peels[2] that threaten them.

This social awareness movement is a phantom of which there is nothing to fear. The living God is real, however and He is to be greatly feared.

Don’t listen to all those false prophets, they are feeding you falsehoods. Listen to the word of God, which instructs you to what we ought to really “stay woke” to….

Psalm 119:148 – My eyes are awake before the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promise.

Isaiah 26:19 – Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy! For your dew is a dew of light, and the earth will give birth to the dead.

Matthew 24:42 – Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.

Ephesians 5:14 – for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”

There is a Sunday conscience, as well as a Sunday coat; and those who make religion a secondary concern put the coat and conscience carefully by to put on only once a week. - Charles Dickens
