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.
The reasons why these Last Days are the way that they are… well …they’re complex, and the only publication that simplifies that complexity is the Bible. All others end up in deception when simplifying current events.
In fact, I worry about engaging in accidental deception, when I try to unravel the complexities for you. That’s why you should never take what I say ‘at face value’.
Always look deep. Always.
You will never understand what’s really happening if you don’t look below the surface. There are dark currents under that ice that you stand on, so I encourage you to understand those currents so that you can make your way to firmer ground.
These are the Last Days. This wasn’t hard for you to figure out, especially after last week’s article. But, there is something about this time that still boggles my mind, as I’m sure that it does yours.
We knew that sin would rise. That’s an easy one to figure out. We all know about sin, since we struggle with it every single day.
I’m seeing it grow everywhere, and its voice is louder than ever. And, I find myself amazed.
WHY is there so much HATRED?
My heart is grieved at the amount of hatred and the lies that so many embrace willingly to fuel that hatred.
Many Christians now realize that we live in the Last Days. It’s a reluctant acknowledgement because no one really wants to go through the horrors that await us. We shy away from contemplating the wholesale destruction of our civilization, but it comes, no matter how we feel about it.
However, those of you who have come to the realization that we live in the last days must now think more carefully about WHERE we are in the Last Days. So many lies have been preached that it’s hard to even SEE the Last Days at all.
There is a darkness at the heart of America. There are evils so profound that to even mention them is almost too much. Our leaders have sent us to war, to fight and die for… for… corruption most foul. We sent our boys (and now also girls) to die for evils that are beyond imagining.
We didn’t know it at the time, but now… well …now we do.
We sent our best and brightest to die on battlefields far away, so that rich men could get richer and the perverse more perverse.
The events of this day and age, force us to contemplate evil. It is everywhere and seeks for a foothold in our hearts. It encroaches on our lives and the lives of those that we love. And, it seems to have exploded onto the world with a ferocity unseen for thousands of years.
There has been no time in human history, as evil as the time in which we live. The only eras that might compare to it were the days of Noah, as well as Sodom and Gomorrah.
But, why now?
What allowed us to become so evil?
Part of the answer is in the title of this piece, and it bears thinking about. Deeply.
