Going Backward in Order to Go Forward

In order to go forward, humanity will go backward for a time.
In a dream vision I saw the driver of a car, (a fine, perfectly functional car), only the driver was driving the car forward down the highway with the car in reverse. The driver was not used to this strange orientation. To drive forward, the car could not be in Drive, but rather in Reverse. To look ahead, the driver had to look in the rearview mirror. To turn the car to the right, the driver still had to turn the wheel to the right, only the car would take longer to turn and would make a wider circle. It took a while for the driver to figure this out. The driver had to do this, not conveniently ahead of time, but suddenly while driving the car on a mountain road, with a wall of rock on one side and a deep drop on the other. Nevertheless, the driver had to keep driving or get out of the car. This is how people will feel in the years ahead.
In many aspects, civilization and human nature itself will appear to go backwards, providing a sharper relief or contrast for the image of God in humankind. Much of today’s technology and electronics will become useless and disappear. Some people will adjust quickly and progress spiritually. Some will not adjust in time to prevent a “crash”. Some will abandon their physical vehicles altogether in death.
GOD IS CALLING US TO A PURE AND SIMPLE LIFE OF HOLINESS. The withdrawal from modern society’s devil-designed distractions and addictions may be difficult, but the Divine “Detox Program” is the medicine we need.
1 Peter 1:13-25
13 Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
17 Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. 18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God. 22 Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart. 23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. 24 For, “All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall,
25 but the word of the Lord endures forever.”
And this is the word that was preached to you.
