Coming down the pike begs the question, as George suggests, "What's coming up the pike?" After all, if things can come down then why can't they come up?
But whether "up" or "down"..., great changes are coming to the greater earth, both natural and man-made. As to the later, the unnatural, some description of what to expect.
The latest experience of this virus is one to behold in terms of the conditions imposed on an international scale; the restrictions, lock-downs and other measures disseminated and delegated to/from international to local governance, and while it may seem warranted to some, it has never been done before--never!
For the powers behind it, this effort has set in place yet another level of just what the public and persons are willing to do never mind the fact that the state seldom delivers just the facts; indeed, these institutions go to great length to withhold facts simply because such denial is a form of power--the lifeblood of the state.
Need I elaborate on how a false witness can destroy a good name when given the leeway to say anything with impunity; that is, without accountability for or responsibility in their testimony, the evidence (which is why perjury is a criminal offense). And yet, on a grand scale, the state is a false witness; wielding and abusing power by purposely withholding or denying the facts--all the while knowingly misleading the public, leveraging fear as a deep, dark and destructive force and imposing ever increasing restrictions behind a curtain of abstracts, vagaries and seemingly good intentions.
The winds of change are fierce, howling and hellbent, and show no signs of dampening or dying-out; no, these prevailing tempests will tear your hearts out, taking all but the final source of our hope; that is, the life hereafter. God willing that we should stay the course such that it may be said,
Well done good and faithful servant....and be done with what's coming, down and up the pike per Albert Pike:
We shall unleash the nihilists and the atheists and we shall provoke a great social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to all nations the effect of absolute atheism; the origins of savagery and of most bloody turmoil.
Then everywhere, the people will be forced to defend themselves against the world minority of the world revolutionaries and will exterminate those destroyers of civilization and the multitudes disillusioned with Christianity whose spirits will be from that moment without direction and leadership and anxious for an ideal, but without knowledge where to send its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer brought finally out into public view. A manifestation which will result from a general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and Atheism; both conquered and exterminated at the same time.
