For two thousand years, we have been pondering the ‘Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse’. They have captured our imaginations and our fears. When a new ‘would-be’ emperor rises, we wondered if HE was the guy on the white horse. When internal conflict arose, we thought of the red horseman. Scarcity and famine made us think of the black horse, and when epidemics ripped through our world, we thought of the pale horse. But, for two thousand years, we’ve been consistently wrong.
So, when do they ride?
I had reason to think about this over the past week, since the sun might be ready to throw our civilization into chaos.
Our world is doomed. I know that this is not something that you want to accept, and I’m with you on this one. But, it doesn’t change the fact that everyone around us is growing more and more insane by the day. And, we need to accept this fact.
I struggle with this, a lot. And, I know that you do too. You wouldn’t be a child of God, if you weren’t grieved by the wickedness and madness that surrounds you.
So, how do we keep the peace of God, while the world falls apart?
And, we are going to need to, if we truly desire to serve God in the midst of the coming darkness.
There has been a real hatred for Paul the Apostle, from the very beginning of his ministry, until now. And, it’s a Satanic hatred that seeks to undermine the Bible and the Body of Christ.
Worst of all, recent versions of this Satanic hatred are coming from those who call themselves Christian. I’m used to hearing non-Christians attack Paul. I’ve this stuff for decades.
Yes, Really. And, I’m afraid that this development is going to increase as corruption within our churches also increases. Jesus spoke of these kinds of things happening in the Last Days, but it still boggles the mind to see it.
When the steam powered printing press was invented in 1843, false teaching and false prophets were given the one thing that they needed to deceive the Body of Christ. It made their profane theology available to the average person, and their books crept into seminaries everywhere. It spread corruption far and wide, to every part of the earth.
Before the printing press, Christians only had the Bible to rely upon – with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It was too difficult and expensive for ill-conceived commentary to get very far. And now, with the Internet, corrupt ideas spread at the speed of light.
The United States, Latin America, Europe, The Middle East, India and China are all set for civil war. Some of that will be like the war fought between the North and the South in the (somewhat less) United States during the 1800s. But, most of it will be social upheaval, ethnic strife and general stupidity.
It’s bad now, but when economic difficulty sets in… it will become catastrophic. Nothing turns a man or woman violent like hungry children. And, when the rule of law finally collapses, those without children will turn violent when others have something that they do not have.
Any history. Any country. All of it is completely insane. Thousands upon thousands of years of complete and utter madness.
Read the Bible.
How is it possible for the Children of Israel – in the wilderness – to be so crazy as to rebel against God?
Read your newspaper.
On second thought… don’t. The WRITERS of newspaper articles are certifiably insane, already. But, current events are even MORE insane.
It’s as if we have all been overcome by a mass psychosis. And, it’s all so very stupid. Mind-boggling idiocy. The mindless, brainless, knee-jerk absurdity of it all is almost beyond my ability to understand.
With the horrifying events that are bearing down upon us, you desperately need to understand WHY Israel is at the center of it all. And, it is the center of it all.
Please understand that we are at the end of history. Everything that has gone before, has been leading up to this moment in time. Yes, the war was won 2000 years ago, but the fighting isn’t over. And, I was deeply impressed by a presentation given by a neighbor of mine, from Jerusalem.
This presentation illustrates THE POINT. And, you need to get that POINT, to navigate the events that we are about to experience.
We are beset with lies. They surround us. They attempt to invade everything that we do. They try to divert our attention. They trip us up when we try to make intelligent decisions. And, the lies are so much more fun than the TRUTH.
That’s why the truth is such a challenge. It’s painful. It’s ugly. It holds a mirror up and shows us that we aren’t as strong or as beautiful as we would like to be.
So, I understand why TRUTH is such a challenge. But, if you want to live long and prosper… If eternity is your destination… you’d better accept the challenge of accepting the TRUTH.
We find the term, Jacob’s Trouble, in Jeremiah 30:7. And, it’s placed in the midst of a chapter that speaks of great calamity and great salvation. And, it is because of that great judgment and calamity, that we think of Jacob’s Trouble as being a part of The Great Tribulation.
After all, ‘trouble’ and ‘tribulation’ are similar words. And, Jeremiah 30:7 mentions the trouble as there being none like that day. So, it’s easy to assume that Jacob’s Trouble and the Great Tribulation are the same.
You’d be wrong, but you would have a good excuse for being wrong.
Turkey is preparing for war and is gathering allies to do so. And, this growing alliance appears suspiciously close to that of the Gog and Magog alliance.
Is Turkey the Land of Magog?
It’s actually hard to say. And, I find that difficulty to be very interesting. It’s as if God were providing us with a test – a test of our willingness to love the Truth, instead of our own intellect. And, I am finding a LOT of ‘self love’ among the intellectuals making spurious claim after spurious claim about Magog.
