Oswald Spengler: “We are born into this time”

20 June 2020

Oswald Spengler



“We are born into this time and must bravely follow the path to the destined end. There is no other way. Our duty is to hold on to the lost position, without hope, without rescue, like that Roman soldier whose bones were found in front of a door in Pompeii, who, during the eruption of Vesuvius, died at his post because they forgot to relieve him. That is greatness. That is what it means to be a thoroughbred. The honorable end is the one thing that cannot be taken from a man.”

Oswald Spengler

    The quote by Spengler has the sovereignty of God written all over it. We are living right here, right now for a reason. We were born for this moment in time, so we might as well get on with the work of doing the Lord’s will in the earth, even though the world system is bent on destroying itself.

    II Timothy 2: 4: “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.”

    I John 2: 17: “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”
