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.
Karen J sent an email, asking me to talk about Zionism. Then others challenged me on other issues about Israel. So, I find myself – yet again – addressing the most important patch of land in the world.
And, it is vital that you get this.
Jesus spoke of Jerusalem – also known as Zion – as a key identifier of the Last Days. The prophets of the Old Testament who are the biggest source of information on the Last Days, also write about the physical land of Israel being key to the Last Days.
Yet, there are so many lies being told about Israel, that I am forced at least once a year to dispel the lies being told about a place that I lived in for 15 years.
We are just a month away from the US elections. The media has been breathlessly focused on the dog and pony show that passes for ‘democracy’ in the US. Unfortunately, this election won’t change the problems that we face, or the foolishness of our governments.
And frankly, I’d like to get on with talking about those things that matter. Unfortunately, this election is also revealing to the average person how awful our governments are.
You and I knew that they were really bad, but now a lot of the less knowledgeable now know.
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.
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.
These are the days that will try your soul. We have crested the hill and now stare into the abyss. The question is whether you will surrender your will to the Lord and obey, in the midst of your anguish – or, whether you will choke and fail. Once the pain starts, it will be hard to choose.
So, choose now.
You will not make it through what is coming without the Lord and His Wisdom. The wisdom of man got you into this mess. It will take the Lord to get you out.
But, He will not ‘get you out’ if you do not choose to obey Him.
The events happening right now should not surprise us. They shouldn’t shock us. They were spoken of almost two thousand years ago, and we’ve been reading them for all of that time. But, it’s one thing to read. It is quite another to see.
I’m right there with you. The fall of America. Death and destruction in Syria. Financial collapse. Waves of violent economic migrants. The rise of a vile and virulent evil. A future full of violence and suffering. All of that is horrifying to think about, and something that no one wants to even acknowledge.
Unfortunately, this is what God and the Bible said would happen.
