The World held its breath as the heads of the Federal Reserve met. And, we all breathed a sigh of relief as they chose not to raise interest rates. But, if you knew the fear at the heart of this decision you wouldn’t feel relief. From now until the Lord returns, fear, desperation and greed will be the watchwords of our society.
This is why Muslim migrants are flooding into Europe. This is why China fortifies tiny atolls in the South China Sea. This is why Russia sends weapons to Syria. This is why ISIS fights to the death. This will be why America will one day declare Martial Law. This will be why Gog and Magog will come against Israel.
My hope is that you will prepare and not join the world in this Fear, Desperation and Greed.
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.
Over the past few months, I’ve been hitting you with one series after another. So, you’re probably glad that I’ve given you something of a breather, this week. I’m also glad because a series is a lot more work than a bunch of individual articles. We’ll see how long this ‘breather’ lasts.
Unfortunately, this is probably the calm before a storm. The Fall seems to be the time when most banks decide to fail, and markets catch cold when investors come back from Summer break and look at their portfolios. Ebola looms on the horizon. And, let’s not forget that dim-witted monkeys are still playing with matches in the bomb factory that we call Ukraine.
After looking at what I’ve said up to this point, I wondered about what I should say next. The world is full of examples of how NOT to do something. In fact, I am even an example foolishness and bad behavior. Just ask my poor, long-suffering wife.
So, I thought that I would ask you a question and talk about a man that I respect a lot – Pastor David Lankford. Having heard his willingness to restrict himself to what the Bible actually says, I am confident that this is a man who is a living, breathing example of someone who loves God.
What I’m going to write about now plays a big part in what drives me to write almost every day. We have been set up for the coming of the Antichrist and his vile system, and it makes me ill to see it. And, we have gladly embraced this deception.
It’s understandable that we would do this. Truth is unpleasant, and obedience is difficult. And, we are ALL creatures of pride and self-indulgence. And yes, I really do place myself in those categories.
The problem is that the lies that we have embraced are destroying us. Now is the time to embrace the truth and obey God.
