I saw evidence of three great catastrophes this week, and they should start alarm bells ringing in all of our minds:
Hezbollah and Iran Challenging Israel
Hard Hearts in Our Churches
The last one is the most important, but you’ll understand the first one better. And for the second… you won’t understand the significance, unless you’ve read Ezekiel’s Fire. And, you need to read Ezekiel’s Fire.
I’m going to give an overview of the importance of those three catastrophes. And, I hope that you’ll pay attention to them. They won’t be fixed, but they can be avoided.
I am so bad at prognostication, that I won’t really try to tell you what WILL happen. The best that I can do is describe the threats. These threats have been looming larger and larger with each passing year. And, some of them are new.
Please treat these seriously.
My hope is that we will have another year where we successfully dodge the bullets being fired at us. But, there is a limit to how often we can do that.
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.
Events are moving forward in ways that make me uncomfortable. We are seeing patterns in the financial markets that we’ve only seen immediately before major collapses. We are seeing the threat of war in the Middle East escalate in ways that you would expect, if Gog and Magog were on the horizon. We have political corruption that is so obvious that the least aware among us have seen it. The hatred of tiny Israel continues to rise and rise, as our morality falls.
I was a guest on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report, Friday night for the full three hours, and it was an interesting conversation. We covered a wide range of topics, and I was at my tangent-following, rabbit-chasing best.
We started out by discussing the events and background of the Syrian civil war. We mentioned Pope Franky and the reasons why the Jesuits are so evil. I even mentioned the Jesuit connection to Hitler. I brought up Isaiah 17, Isaiah 19, Ezekiel 38 and 39 – as well as Luke 21:24.
The leadership of Syria has been vile and evil. They have sought to destroy both Israel and Jordan, and Jordan survives today, only because Israel mobilized her army in 1972 – to defend Jordan from Syria. Syria was heavily involved in the destruction of Lebanon. They supported every kind of terrorist on the planet. And, let’s not forget Hama. There’s a reason why they call rules for massacres like that “Hama Rules“. But, that was Hafez al-Assad.
His son is Bashar, and seems like a decent guy. Unfortunately, because of his father – and his father’s generals that probably STILL run the place – Syria has been destroyed.
And, I just saw it in a way that could not be ignored… yesterday.
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.
Our technocratic civilization has reached such dizzying heights, that even the boundaries of mortality are being challenged. We envision humanity spreading out into the solar system, and then into the rest of the Universe. We fiddle with the very code of life, with barely a thought about the consequences. We engage in the massacre of our precious children and plot the murder of billions.
This vile civilization of ours cannot be allowed to continue, so it won’t. God will shake the world and destroy our rebellion against Him.
The question is whether you will be ready, when God tears down our carefully crafted way of life.
