I am so bad at prognostication, that I won’t really try to tell you what WILL happen. The best that I can do is describe the threats. These threats have been looming larger and larger with each passing year. And, some of them are new.
Please treat these seriously.
My hope is that we will have another year where we successfully dodge the bullets being fired at us. But, there is a limit to how often we can do that.
Of all the years that I’ve been writing articles, I believe that 2017 is the most important. And, I’ve been writing since the mid ’90s. Only time will tell, whether I’m right (and write). And, 2018 might be even MORE momentous.
However, we’ll deal with 2018 later. Right now, we need to look back at this past year and examine what was important. But, I want to do that a bit differently than I normally do, at this time of year.
I want to look at the articles that YOU thought were important, and a few that I thought to be important.
Daniel 8 is a tough chapter to work through, and I believe that it was done that way on purpose. But, since it is an important chapter in an important book, it is worth our time to try and understand it.
And, I believe that we have some ability to piece together what can and cannot be the correct interpretation of Daniel 8.
So, let’s try to figure out if the Antichrist MUST come from the region in and around the Middle East – including Greece and parts of central Asia.
Christians have been talking about the Great Tribulation from the moment that Christ proclaimed its coming. It will be the most horrifying and awful moment in time, since the beginning of Creation. It will be so bad, that you would rather die than go through it.
That is COMPLETELY understandable.
Likewise, it is completely understandable to want to know how long the Great Tribulation is. If you are going to go through it, you’d like to know how long it will last.
Horrible times are always more bearable, when you know when they will end.
Satan faces many barriers in his attempt to bring his counterfeit messiah into this world. The biggest of those barriers is the righteousness of the followers of Christ, but that barrier is collapsing with the massive corruption flooding into our churches, neutralizing the salt that was supposed to preserve the community and nation. And, I could go down the list of other barriers, but there is one that I am intimately familiar with – especially over the past few days:
Yes, I now that you view computers as the pathway that the Antichrist will use to rule the world. But, there are LOTS of barriers along that path, and I had to deal with a couple of them this week.
I was not intending to write a Part II, when I wrote last week’s article. But, a few things popped up that demonstrated a need to continue down this line of thought.
This really is a ‘perfect storm’. There are so many threats that have moved into view, that I am surprised that we do not see some real hysteria over it all. Of course, the problem is our ‘dumbed-down’ population and the evil cooperation by the morons in the mainstream press.
Add in the Universities and their attempts at ‘social engineering’, and you truly have a recipe for disaster. So, let’s look at some of the other pieces in our Apocalypse Puzzle.
I stand amazed by how little truth and faith there is. God calls us to believe what He says in the Bible, and to ignore all who speak contrary to the Bible. Yet, we refuse. And yes, I put myself in that category, since I have been as guilty as anyone.
All of the prophecies in the Bible will be fulfilled, yet we tend to look around us and think that it can’t be possible. Everything looks so normal.
That’s because we are walking by sight, instead of by faith.
With all that is happening right now, you would think that a book review would be the last thing for me to talk about. But, it is precisely because there is so much going on that I must do this book review.
Spiritual blindness is the one thing keeping Christians from seeing what is happening and what is about to happen. If our brothers and sisters were spiritually awake and following the Holy Spirit, I would not need to tell you anything.
But, I believe that this book is vital for many to read. So, bear with me as I discuss A Bucket Full of Holes.
