“There’s only one tactical principle which is not subject to change. ‘It’s, ‘To use the means at hand to inflict the maximum amount of wounds, death and destruction on the enemy in the minimum amount of time,'” Gen. George S. Patton.
For we mortals the goal is the same but minus the violence. God will take care of the violence, if called for. God’s first approach is mercy causing repentance. If that doesn’t work, God evokes violence. And violence wears many faces. Know your Bible, know yourself and the world beyond.
“Men have called me mad. but the question is not settled, whether madness, is or is not, the loftiest of intelligence – whether much that is glorious – whether all that is profound — does not spring from disease of thought – – from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect.
They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who only dream by night. In their gray visions they contain glimpses of eternity, and thrill, in waking, to find that they have been privileged great secrets. In snatches, they learn something which is good. Reaching beyond mere knowledge. They have penetrate the rudderless and compass less navigation systems. Into the vast ocean of light defying expression or description.
Experience shows, and true philosophy will always show that a vast, perhaps the larger portions of truth arises from the seemingly irrelevant, Edgar Allan Poe.
Another person privy to such great secrets was the writer of the biblical book of Revelation. Declaring so with this statement, “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as a trumpet.”
Even greater than what Poe or anyone else had experienced. Saying,” I am the first and the last! What you see write in a book.” Then I turned to see the voice that spoke to me. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forever more! And have the keys to Hades and death!” (cp. Revelation 1:10-18).
