We spend a lot of time thinking about The Big Event – The Great Tribulation, Gog and Magog, Global Thermonuclear War, etc. What we often fail to realize is that there are a host of events that happen between now and then, events that bring the world to the point of the destruction foretold by the prophets in the Bible.
I know this failure to realize all too well. I am routinely appalled by my inability to see what is right in front of my eyes. But, God is good, and He always brings someone along to show me what I’ve missed. And, I pass this hard-earned wisdom on to you.
Damascus is going to fall, and it will be horrifying.
Thursday marked the 100 year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. It laid the groundwork for the completely legal distribution of land rights to the Jews, as the foul and evil Ottoman Empire was being dismembered. And, make no mistake, the Ottoman Empire was truly corrupt and Satanic.
(Remember the Armenian Genocide?)
It was also a moment in time that marked the spread of the idea of the Nation State. The monarchies were dying. The ‘divine right of kings’ was losing recognition. And, it was the high water mark for Christianity in Europe and North America. After that, it was downhill.
Never forget that the founding of the State of Israel and her success has been entirely due to the Christians.
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 grieve over the ignorance and hatred that currently sweeps through our churches. I have fought that ignorance and hatred for twenty years, and I will continue to fight it with my dying breath. And, I will not surrender to this ignorance and hatred, even if it kills me. And it wouldn’t surprise me if it DID wind up killing me.
What would be so important that I would court physical harm and even death?
It’s a place. A tiny patch of ground that God claimed as His own. God called that tiny patch of ground Zion, and the forces of Satan have done their best to defame that tiny bit of real estate. But, Satan is losing.
Monday marks yet another day of remembrance for those who fell in service to the United States. My family has fought and died in every war that America has fought. We bled on every battlefield from the Revolutionary War, to the wars now being fought by the US in the Middle East and Afghanistan.
Unfortunately, the government of the United States has betrayed that sacrifice. Our government dances on the graves of our fallen, and when we salute the flag on Memorial Day, this Monday… we salute the symbol for pornography, heroin, tyranny, abortion and the lowest forms of stupidity that I have had the misfortune to read about.
When you read your Bible, you see how God deals with countries that have become evil – especially countries that claim Him as their God. This is as much a law of the Universe as gravity, electromagnetism and a really good cheeseburger.
Even worse, when you see Christians engaging and supporting the evils of aforesaid evil country, the wrath of God is even closer and more imminent. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you haven’t been reading your Bible.
Seriously, I’m not making this up.
It’s in the Bible.
And, since it’s in the Bible, America is toast. Well charred. Ready for the dumpster.
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.
