160 The Mindset of Insignificance

Sometimes a person struggling in the fight of being a furious voice for the truth against an army, nay a deluge, of lies and lie-blarers can wake up discouraged, wondering, "What the hell am I doing here anyway? What difference on earth am I going to make anyway?"

I call it the "mindset of insignificance" that probably overtakes all of us sometimes.
After all, it's being scientifically drilled into us. They even have a scientific name for it and called in the "Copernican principle" or "principle of mediocrity," a scientific "fact," (as far as its religious devotees are concerned), closely related to the "fact" of Evolution, which is to remind us all daily, and many times throughout every day of our lives of our devastating insignificance in this universe:

After all, each of us represents nothing more than an insignificant conglomeration of chemicals and matter on an equally insignificant spec of dust among hundreds of billions of others in one galaxy among yet hundreds of billions... so they say.

Except that some scientists who refuse to adhere to the dictatorial brainwash of the mainstream scientific community are coming up with arguments that the odds of other "insignificant specs of dust" like our planet to exist in our galaxy aren't as high as the prophets of the Copernican principle like Carl Sagan made them sound to be.

Turns out that our "insignificant spec of dust" holds a few privileges we shouldn't take for granted.

And as far as the tiny, lonely voice for truth against vast majorities is concerned, it wouldn't be the first time that God shows that one man with Him can suffice to defeat he entire opposing army: from Moses to Gideon and David, who hurled the decisive rock against the giant's head that would bring his country's intimidated army back to life, and further on down the line to Elijah, Elisha, Jeremiah and Paul, St. Francis, Luther and Gandhi... little, seemingly insignificant people who won decisive battles against armies of empires that vastly outnumbered them; and it stands to reason that if God did it that way before, who's to tell Him that He can't do it again?

Of course, the ever growing vast majority of modern day Philistines will joke about our God even more profanely nowadays, since they cooked up a literal flood of "scientific" arguments to disprove His existence - a flood that would require an arc to stay afloat and rising above it - and to discourage any insane Don Quixote from any noble ambitions real fast, unless he remains steadfastly ignoring their ceaseless deafening rants....

If the Evolutionists seem to be right about one thing, it's that we do appear to be herd animals, and not many of us are carved out to be sole fighters against an overwhelming majority.
We want our own army on our side and behind us. God alone, due to His unforgivable handicap of invisibility, doesn't seem to be enough for any of us most of the time.

Even folks who have no problems admitting that there is a spirit world with wicked entities in it that manipulate our realm don't have it in them to believe or even accept the idea that perhaps if those wicked and demonic entities exist, there might also be a "good Guy" in that realm somewhere, because that would be religious, and no, they're not religiously inclined.

Demons? Yes. God? No.
No, they also want to see an army of "great awakers" rise behind them to save them and all of mankind out of their own mess. The only way, they seem to reason, we're ever going to overcome the curse of our insignificance, is by amassing so many of us that we're also going to be a flood of "good" people, rising up against the bad people...

Well, I wish to God they were right, and the "Great Awakening" should really happen.
But then what? "Meet the new boss - the same as the old boss?" I think we've heard that tune before...

I think the only "Boss" Who's ever going to make a real and lasting difference is the One Who is trying to prove that a seemingly insignificant spec of dust doesn't necessarily have to be all that insignificant by putting it in its unique position in the first place and by dying for each so seemingly insignificant soul on this planet as if to show that for Him there is no such thing as insignificant.

If you're out for quantity and size, then maybe that's your thing, but the invisible Maker behind the scenes of the universe seems to have a knack for little things and seemingly insignificant details.
We may be dust alright, but when blown and carried into the right position within the light, even a tiny spec of dust can sparkle and shine like a diamond.

Let's see what insignificant piece of rock is going to land our present day Goliaths on their nose while the by-standing armies are going to wonder "Hey, why didn't I sling that thing?..." - Or what unconventional methods God is going to use to prove to us one again that it's "not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord" (Zec.4:6)
