The Birthplace of Oxymoron


Did you know that the use of the word oxymoron has skyrocketed since 1950?  Before that, the word was hardly used at all. 

I gleaned this information from a chart you can find on Google.  I assume the chart is born from a computerized assessment of words used in the writings of men. 

https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?year_start=1800&year_end=2008&corpus=15&smoothing=7&case_insensitive=on&content=oxymoron&direct_url=t4%3B%2Coxymoron%3B%2Cc0%3B%2Cs0%3B%3Boxymoron%3B%2Cc0%3B%3BOxymoron%3B%2Cc0%3B%3BOXYMORON%3B%2Cc0

What is the reason for this?  I propose it can be explained.

Consider 1945.  World War 2 is ablaze.  Forced by death, men embrace science with the greatest of urgent passion.  While the men of “The Faith” established Youth for Christ.  And so the division begins in earnest.  For the sake of fleshly survival, men abandon God.

Relatively speaking, before that year, men were innocent of the hideous abandon we now see.  And so the vigorous use of the word oxymoron begins.  God calls the dead to life, but the dead desire death.

In that year a serious division between the works of man and the works of God was born.  In that year, the beginning of the end began.  In that year, technology was released by necessity.  In that year, dead men died even more.  In that year, the possibility of saving souls diminished.

Oxymoron: a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction (e.g., “Science will save us”). 

(Do you know who said that, those words quoted in the e.g.?  It was the current leader of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama.)

In that year, men began to live as oxymorons; living as contradictions between life and death.  Forced by the nature of the world, to divide themselves from the Living God.  Forced, by the nature of the world around them, to prepare an army which will face The Christ.

If it began there, how established are they now?  If your grandfather’s began to separate from God in that year, where are you today?  Do you dare ask yourself, “What time is it”?

The meaning of this is clear to me, and this by the Spirit of the Living God.  If there was an urgency within the gospel, in centuries past, it is unspeakably urgent now.  For as 1945 came without fanfare, so the coming of Christ will be.

But I am forced to repeat the words of the Prophet, “Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?”

By His Grace
