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.
War has flared in the Caucasus region, with Azerbaijan launching attacks against Armenia. The Panama Papers has set the political hens squawking. I have some more on Israel. And, the political Armageddon that is scheduled for November might not wait for election day.
My grandma used to call this a bunch of fuss and feathers. Unfortunately, my grandmother isn’t around to share her wisdom with us, so you’re stuck with me. Actually, it’s probably good that she isn’t here to see how awful and foolish her country has become.
It’s going to be a long, hot summer, and I really hope that you’ll be ready for this.
Chinese stock markets and inevitable defaults in Greece, Puerto Rico and Ukraine. Deadly drought in California and Central America. The death of the Pacific Ocean. The rise of ISIS. Empty Iranian promises. The explosion of hatred and ignorance. The arrival of Jade Helm 15.
All of that swept across my desk this week. In fact, the only bright spot was Russia – and THAT sent a shiver through me, because the coming of Gog and Magog lies just over the horizon.
Never – in over four thousand years – have we seen so many threats, all at once. And, the Bible tells us that there is worse to come.
Europe teeters on the brink of collapse. The evidence of economic disintegration continues to roll in. America beats the drums of war. The Chinese stock market may crash on Monday. Evil rises across the world.
And, a lovely woman died on Thursday.
She was a sister in Christ and held the Lord close, until her last breath. She was my wife’s aunt, and the one that I admired the most. I was in the other room when she went to be with the Lord. And, it gave me an opportunity to reflect on the life we live, and the death we choose.
Waves of antisemitism have swept Europe, the Americas and the Middle East for centuries. This psychological defect has poisoned the minds of many and provided fertile ground for evil men and women who delight in oppressing the innocent.
Unfortunately, many in the alternative media have been captured by this ancient evil. Worse, this new wave of antisemitism has clouded clear thought and obscured the evil designs of the enemy.
Far worse than that, followers of Christ have allowed themselves to be turned away from what God says. The Bible clearly states that God has not forgotten the physical children of Jacob. God will bring Jacob back to Himself, and we risk the wrath of God – if we oppose what God is so clearly doing.
On Monday, I took the Jerusalem Light Rail from end-to-end. I had suffered through too many years of streets torn up and insufferable construction delays… to pass up a chance to take the train at least once. And, it’s a great train. Little did I know that it would take me through more than a hundred years of hope, genocide, terror and conflict.
And, foolishness. Utter foolishness.
The story of the Jewish people will be our story, if we do not pay attention to the evil that lies before us. What they did to the Jews, they will do to us.
Our enemies will be satisfied by nothing less than genocide, terror and death for all who love and serve God.
We spend a lot of time trying to figure out who and what The Beast is, but seemingly very little time looking for the woman who rides The Beast. And, there are some interesting challenges that we have in trying to figure out the identity of The Great Whore.
The Book of Revelation gives us clues to the identity of The Great Whore. But, even though those clues are definitive, they still leave us with more questions than answers. I have tried to answer as many of those questions as possible, this week. And, the reason why I have tried to do that is wrapped up in a command by God found in Revelation 18.
The Beast that the woman rides is first mentioned in Revelation 11:7, but only briefly. The Beast is then discussed in detail in Chapter 13 – but, not the Beast Rider. It is only in Chapter 17 that we see the Great Whore, who sits on many waters.
Those of you reading your Bibles know that all the big showdowns happen at Jerusalem. The big battles, as well as big covenants happened there.
When it’s all over, Satan will have been defeated by God – three times at Jerusalem. Satan was defeated first, on the cross of our Lord – at Jerusalem. Satan will be defeated, when Jesus returns – at Jerusalem. And, Satan will be defeated a third and final time, at the very end of the Millennium – at Jerusalem.
And, two great covenants were made there. The covenant between Abraham’s children and God, was made – at Jerusalem. The covenant between ourselves and God, was made – at Jerusalem.
The thing that hurts the more than anything else, is seeing brothers and sisters in Christ preach the message of Satan. It’s like a knife in the heart, to read and hear Satanic error being preached from pulpits and spread on websites.
Yes, we do get things wrong, and I’ve been guilty of this, myself, but there’s a difference between errors of interpretation and outright opposition to God. And, the name Satan literally means, adversary – or, the one who opposes.
And, it has become clear to me, that Jerusalem has become a lightning rod in the hearts and minds of those among us, who have chosen to oppose God.
