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.
I want to pack in a few more cheeseburgers before a financial Armageddon descends upon us, so I was relieved when Greece surrendered to Europe and when China put a draconian halt to financial losses in the Chinese stock market. I feel sorry for the Greeks and the Chinese, but I like my cheeseburgers.
Unfortunately, something happened this week that has dampened my appetite and catastrophically reorganized a region that I like to call home:
The Middle East
Obama’s surrender to Iran has unleashed the dogs of war. This geopolitical earthquake will change the face of the Middle East forever. And, it has brought us a huge leap closer to Ezekiel’s Fire.
It’s the last day of the year, so it’s time to talk about what might happen in the next one. I did that last year with somewhat mixed results. Some came true. Some may yet come true. We’ll see how I do this time, next year.
Unfortunately, I am far more confident than I was last year. I hesitated to be definite last year, because I knew that the elites could still kick the can down the road for another year.
However, this year, they’ve run out of road …and time.
As I continue to build up the Ezekiel’s Fire website, it has become more and more clear to me that catastrophe is headed towards America. America must fall, and it will fall. And, I wish that it wasn’t going to happen. I really, really do.
However, we have sinned against God, so this is our just reward.
For those of you who want to see evidence that this calamity approaches, we’ve had two warning shots fired across our bow, over the last few days. And, we will see more in the coming weeks and months.
My hope is that you will be ready when the warnings stop, and the collapse begins.
Yesterday, I was so caught up in the idea of rhythms and cycles that I didn’t leave myself enough time for writing. So, if you were wondering why there was no Shock Letter, that was one part of the reason. However, I also have a Bible class that I teach on Fridays, so that’s the other part.
Lord willing, I will be able to write about what I think about the rhythms and cycles that we see in history, and talk about what those rhythms and cycles tell us about the future. Hopefully, bad news will take the week off, so that we can talk about all that.
When all we worried about was the Saudis starting WWIII during the Sochi Olympics?
Yeah. Those days. Just nine months ago.
Well, they’re here again, but this time they sit on top of the US-backed overthrow of Ukraine, the threat of Ebola from Africa, US-trained ISIS rampaging through the Middle East and a Saudi attack on Russian oil revenues.
And, how would the Saudis have started World War III at the Sochi Olympics?
By convincing Chechen rebels to stage a terrorist attack on the Sochi Olympics. And, it was something that Prince Bandar bin Sultan, head of Saudi Intelligence, threatened to do.
This week was one of those quiet moments in time in between waves of awful news – a moment that allows you to put awful events into perspective, as well as talk about other issues that need to be addressed. There is, after all, a bigger picture and more things going on in the world than Ebola, World War III and the fall of the American Empire.
So, as the next wave of pandemic, war and financial collapse gathers itself for another attempt to swamp our lives with awful news, we have the opportunity to connect some other dots and look at other problems.
I think that we can all agree that it takes energy to make stuff. People don’t get very much done when they don’t have enough food to eat. Tractors don’t go very far without fuel. Power plants don’t produce electricity without coal.
And, we’ve run into two problems with energy.
More and more people want a share of it
We’re having trouble increasing our production of it
Up to now, whenever we needed more energy, we dug a new well or opened a new mine to produce more of it. So, when the Chinese asked for more, we could give it to them. But, that’s not the case, anymore.
No civilization lasts forever. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that our own civilization is going to fall. The problem is that our fall will be the biggest and most violent in human history. Billions will die, and it will set the stage for the coming of the Antichrist.
Unfortunately, collapses like this ALWAYS happen suddenly – almost without warning. I say ‘almost’ because there ARE warning signs, but you need to pay attention to see them. The signs are always hidden in the back pages of newspapers – and in the Bible.
Of course, we stopped reading our Bible a long time ago, which is yet another sign of the coming fall of our civilization.
