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.
As the darkness closes in around us, it is natural for our thoughts to turn towards the prospect of a grim future. And, in the short-term, it IS grim. But, as John The Apostle contemplated these things, he embraced these events, for they pointed to the return of our God and King, Jesus Christ.
I must keep reminding myself of this, as I look upon the evil that is happening around us, and within us.
I am grateful to all who have chosen to make a stand for Christ. For the Truth. For Righteousness. For an eternity with God. It is a struggle, and it will take everything you have. But, it is worth far more than anything that we can give.
We live in the Last Days. If you have any doubt, read Matthew 24, Luke 21 and Mark 13. And, Luke 21:24 shows us when these Last Days began. A part of these Last Days is the coming of a vast army, down upon the Middle East – specifically Israel.
That army will be destroyed, and much of our civilization with it. I call it Ezekiel’s Fire. You will call it terrifying. And, we see this prophecy beginning to be fulfilled.
We refer to it as The Coming of Gog and Magog, and God speaks of hooks that He will put in the jaws of Gog, to bring the great prince down to Israel.
I believe that the bombing of Flight 7K9268 was one of those hooks.
I appeared on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report, last Friday night for the full three hours. Doug and Joe were at their awesome best, even in the face of technical difficulties. They let me babble and dabble a bit on my own as they connected cables, flipped switches and fixed a few last minute issues.
(Eric, you’re awesome.)
I talked a bit about what’s going on, as well as my life here in Taiwan. But, we spent the largest part of our time talking about the spiritual dimension of Halloween (aka, Samhain) and the spiritual darkness that envelopes our world.
The most evil day of the year has come – Halloween. I guess that we can thank the Roman Catholic Church for preserving it for us.
You will forgive me for reserving my gratitude for someone else.
And, just like the Catholic Church, many of our brothers and sisters in Christ are playing with abominations, by sending their children out to ‘Trick or Treat’. Our churches even hold ‘Halloween Parties’, and the less depraved of our congregations have ‘Autumn Festivals’.
What our churches should do instead, is meet in prayer for the protection of the souls of our vulnerable children.
This is not a game, and we need to stop playing with Satanic fire.
The horrifying insanity that floats across the headlines is beyond comprehension. It is as if the leadership of the ‘developed’ world chose to engage in some kind of communal hallucination as they drag our world over the nearest cliff.
This collective suicide confounds logic and reason. It is as if God has handed us over to destruction. Canada just elected the biggest idiot on the planet. Europe has invited their worst enemies into their midst. America is destroying what is left of that which made her good. The Arabs are flinging themselves upon the altar of their own destruction.
And, you and I are appalled witnesses to this absolute madness.
The misinformation and disinformation that swirls around us has been designed to entrap and enslave us to an agenda that will lead to our death and destruction. Satan is the author of it all, and it is aimed directly at the Body of Christ…
Lucifer is the father of lies, and he has been churning out his best lies for centuries, in anticipation of the showdown that we are about to experience.
This is why the truth will always be hard to see, and hard to understand – when you see it. So, hold the truth close.
It is only through faith in our Lord and Savior and the direction of the Holy Spirit through the Word of God – that we have any hope of escaping the disbelief that destroys those around us.
We turned a corner last week. As bad as things were up to that turning point, they will get worse and worse over the coming weeks and months. Some of the difficulties that lie ahead will be natural – the kinds of things that human civilization has faced for thousands of years. But, only some.
Why only some?
Because there is a force at work in the minds of those with power, wealth and influence. It is a heart of darkness that has given allegiance to the prince and power of the air – Satan. If you ignore the fact of his control, you will be blind to the direction that our civilization is being pushed towards.
