More and more people are beginning to realize that the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Theory has no scriptural basis. This is wonderful to hear, for those of us who love the Bible and are horrified by those who twist it. Even better, people are producing books and videos explaining why they have left the pretrib view.
I stumbled over one such video this week, and it encouraged me to dig deeper. My digging uncovered a few more resources for you to look at.
Unfortunately, whenever I do this, I come under Satanic attack. And, this week was no exception.
The heat is on. Events escalate in the Middle East. Allies switch sides. The Gulf Arabs are in melt-down. Iran chortles over her ability to twist America’s tail. Anti-Semites come out of the woodwork. Europe suffers more rape and murder by migrants.
It’s been the Dog Days of Summer. Especially here in Taiwan.
Erdogan survived because he understood the battleground better than the generals did, and had better reflexes than the generals. And, Erdogan had been planning for this for years.
This was a real coup, with a real attempt at turning Turkey back towards the secularist values of Kemal Ataturk. The failure of this coup places another important piece into the puzzle of Ezekiel’s Fire.
Over the past two weeks the Republicans and Democrats presented their most persuasive arguments for why Americans should choose THEM to lead the United States. I’m not a fan of either party, and the candidates that I supported most did not get nominated.
More important, Turkey made its turn away from the US and NATO, and toward the Middle East. If you are wondering how that will play out, just read Ezekiel 38 and 39. And then, read Isaiah 19, where it talks about Assyria. For Assyria to rise, Turkey must fall.
These are momentous times, and the long, hot summer that I’ve been talking about isn’t over yet.
Without complexity, the Antichrist system cannot rise and take over, but it is also that complexity that makes this rising system vulnerable. That lesson was brought home to me this week, when my computer – through my own ‘best laid plans’ – did not act as intended.
I thank God that My computer is now acting as intended. God wins through simplicity. Satan can only win through complexity.
We aren’t even halfway through the summer, and it’s already beyond comprehension. Black Lives Matter has gone full-on terrorist. Terrorism rises in France. Brexit has come and gone. Hillary is falling in the polls, and has a Green Party challenger. The financial system is just a twitch away from a nightmare collapse. The Petrodollar system is failing, and the American Empire with it. The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam is a done deal, and more dams are on the way – just like Isaiah said it would happen in chapter 19. Syria has all but captured Aleppo.
And, Boris Johnson is now the Foreign Minister of the UK. YES!
What a shocking week. Obama destroys the Rule of Law by effectively pardoning Hillary. Turkey doubles down on her rapprochement with Russia. We learned that investment in conventional oil development has collapsed. News of economic collapse gathers steam. Gold takes a big leap higher, and still has much higher to go. China teeters on the brink of a 1929-style Great Depression. Ramadan ends with dead bodies strewn everywhere. Matthew 24:7 comes to Dallas, where black shooters kill five police officers. A Palestinian terrorist murders a 13 year old American-Israeli girl in her bed.
And Typhoon Nepartak visits southern Taiwan and ignores my open invitation here in Taipei.
As the events of these Last Days unfold, we begin to see more and more evidence of Satan’s war with God – along with the undeniable fact that Satan cannot win. The Bible indicates when Satan figures this out – when he’s cast out of heaven.
The other problem that Satan has is his inability to work directly. Satan only has a very small slice of society that obey him. The rest of society needs to be… maneuvered and manipulated. And, society can’t be allowed to see that manipulation, or they will bolt for the exits.
