Things seemed to have slowed a bit. Though we had a terrorist attack last week, the horror appears to have slithered away for a bit. It’s just so difficult to get the sheeple all upset in December. So, I’m not expecting much over the next two weeks.
This doesn’t mean that nothing will happen. LOTS is going on. In fact, you should expect big political moves to happen over the next few weeks, because this is the time of year when people really aren’t paying attention.
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.
Evil has escaped its prison and now lays waste to people and nations. Those given the responsibility of keeping evil in chains, recline on their couches and bask in the warmth of their televisions. They invited evil into their homes and can no longer identify what is evil, and what is not.
We forgot that glorifying God with words, deeds and our very lives was more than a Sunday service. We forgot that nothing – NOTHING – is more important than God. We forgot that eternity awaits…
I kicked over a hornet’s nest on Thursday by talking about something that none of us want to hear – myself included. I do not want to hear that there are limits to what I am allowed to do in my own defense. I don’t like it, and you don’t either.
We Americans are passionate believers in the right of the individual. I have circumnavigated the world twice and have found no group of people like those who come from the United States. We are a proud citizenry, with a proud history, and we have changed the world.
I grew up in a family that was oriented towards science and technology. My parents both had college degrees, and I myself suffered through eight years of university foolishness. So, even though we had a steadfast faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we were immersed in a world that we could touch and feel. The world of the demonic… well, we had to take it on faith.
That changed four years ago when I traveled to the Far East for the first time. I ran into spiritual forces that I’d never encountered before. It was shocking and eye-opening. For the first time in my life, I no longer needed to take the idea of demons on faith.
