A FEW CURRENT EVENTS

 

IN MY READINGS I AM constantly amazed at how world news appears to be more Biblical than those in our pulpits who continue to preach and teach a social, self-help, positive thinking, prosperity type of Gospel.  It just might be more Biblical for some to pay more attention to world news than to the Bible.  God is speaking loudly in our world, yet most appear to have ears that are deaf and eyes that cannot see.

Israel News Today reported on Friday, August 13th that former U.N. Ambassador John R. Bolton stated that "Russia will load nuclear fuel rods into an Iranian reactor..."  Now go back and read Ezekiel 38.  Certainly this is Biblical news being fulfilled right before our eyes.  It is not time to play Christianity.  It is time for all who claim the name of Christ to read the messages given to the compromised deceived churches in Revelation two and three.  If this wasn't frightening enough, I would encourage everyone to read the article titled Hiding in Plain Sight: The One-World System by Heidi Swander.  She presents the terrifying facts that the one world government is not coming--it is here.  The days are here folks when we must quit being religious and be a Christian.  Just like in Nazi Germany, most Christians were asleep at the wheel until it was too late and an unimaginable holocaust took place.  Another holocaust is coming that will make Hitler's horror look like a slumber party.  Now the Health Care bill was certainly a fiasco that still boggles the mind as to how it ever got passed.  How can the speaker of the house get by with saying that "We have to pass the health care bill so that you can find out what is in it."   Isn't that putting the cart before the horse?  Truly, though we have much knowledge, wisdom has surely ceased.  One of the things that appears to be in it is the micro chipping of people.  You've got to read the story at Chattanooga.com headlined as Obama Health Care Bill To Include Microchips In People.  Truly the Devil is clever as he sets the last pieces in place for the rise of the Antichrist.  In this health care bill, anyone who chooses to be included in Obama's health care plan will need to be implanted with a microchip.  Since the goal is for all American's to fall under the health care plan in some way, the bottom line is:  no chip, no health care.  Truly our trust must be in the living God who cares for His people.  Read and meditate and make an engrafted part of your life Matthew 6:19-28.  I was speaking to an acquaintance, who owns a jewelry business and buys and sells gold, who was seriously questioning how much value gold would actually have in an inflationary and deflationary scenario.  His thoughts went this direction because the rules have changed and he is questioning whether an ounce of gold would truly be of value in a cashless society where no one would be trading in gold and silver since they would not be tradable.  The Bible does let us know that gold and silver will still be around in the last of the last days, but it is obvious you and I will not be in possession of any of it.  At some point most of the gold and silver in the world will be cashed in by the common man to survive and given to the elitist rich.

No matter how you turn the cards, the days are short.  We are living in the last of the last days when it appears that our eyes will  see the Antichrist (I am 57 and counting).  It is of the utmost importance that we truly be a Christian now and not be left outside the door of heaven knocking to get in.  Read the story of the ten virgins again in Matthew 25:1-13.  Notice that the picture here is of those who are true Christian and those who are false Christian.  The difference is that the true Christian has God living in them.  Luke 13:24-28 reminds us that the false Christian will "seek" for God but never know him.  The true Christian will not just seek and read the Bible and go to church, but will strive and work hard to do what Jesus taught.  No, we cannot work our way to heaven, but we do need to live in obedience to God's word.  If we are not living after God, then we are living after the Devil.  Though you may seek God, you will always be far from Him until you begin to strive to enter heaven.

It is true that many troubling events are taking place in today's world.  Many people don't understand why things are happening as they are and are concerned.  This is where you are I come in.  We have the answers in the book called the Bible.  We can explain why things are happening, we can offer hope.  While we can still openly proclaim the gospel, let us let offer those in our circle of influence the hope that is found in Jesus Christ. 

 Until next time…

Be so much the more, as ye see the day approaching
