How about the news, eh? Seems like we keep hearing about war or rumors of war. It looks as though we have so many critical problems that we are in the midst of international consternation as to what to do to rectify all these problems. How does a country such as America and her allies fight a war that runs from Afghanistan to North Korea with a large dollop of Russia and terrorism thrown in just for good measure? Add to this fatal ingredient of nuclear arms and tell me which way to turn for release from all this. How many of you ask the question, “Why would God put us through all this?”
Well, it isn’t God who is making all this happen. He has written about all this thousands of years ago. The reason no one either knows this or refuses to give credibility to this is that it is now unpopular at parties to speak of God. Whatever you do, don’t mention Him in public! Instead, find everything wrong with the world and blame it on Him. Ask yourself, who would want God blamed for all the problems the world has? Who would want Him disparaged as well as His Son? Mankind? No, not all.
Let’s take a look at 1914. At this time last century the first world war was started. the significance of WW 1 was the world wide national commitment to the war. Never before had the entire world become involved; nation against nation across the oceans. Then followed a lot of skirmishes and, ultimately, WW 2. What happened that caused all of this terror to our planet? Add to this the diabolical discovery and development of the atom as a weapon. Then came the Korean War which was never resolved but left simmering until now; all these decades later. Add to that 9/11 and the 16 years of war in which we are still involved. Seems never ending doesn’t it?
The world has been at war with only brief respite since 1914. I doubt that many people understand that fact. War and rumors of war. (read Matthew Chap. 24.) Jesus called these “Birth Pangs” when asked about the end of the world by His disciples. Do not fear them. These things have to happen before the “Great Tribulation.”
Scripturally speaking, Satan was cast down from Heaven to the vicinity of the Earth in 1914. (According to some Bible scholars) You can take that as you want because I am not sure of the dates. The first world war seems like a likely candidate for this occurrence though. Especially when you add the fact that the Word of God (the Bible) has been spread far and wide throughout the world (as Jesus said it would be) and, geographically speaking, the world is now settled in all its habitable regions for the first time in history. Cool, huh?
The accuracy of the Bible’s time table is now becoming obviously accurate. Despite the detractors and scientists from all disciplines who said it was not accurate it has recently been proved that they were wrong in the last couple of centuries and that the Bible is on the money. Who’d a thunk? I would. You most likely will if you read the book.
The Bible has never been so critically important for us as it is now. this is the reason I have turned my emphasis from politics to faith here. I am fighting a rising tide of disbelief for political reasons and I understand that. I also understand that many who have read this blog before will stop reading it because this is so incendiary in our time. For the sake of those who are struggling with all that this world is now portending there is hope and it will not rest in the hands of man. Man has been given thousands of years to make the world right or prove that he can’t. Which way do you think it has gone for mankind? The Bible is a complex, yet, simple book. It gives peace, comeuppance or, like me, a combination of both, to all who read it. The very least I can do is recommend it. If you would like to go further you can attend my website, “Enictu.” It is free to join and is just getting started. We can discuss and questions can be raised and answered there if I can grow a community of interest. I will welcome all of you there.
Addendum. From King James Version:
1 Thessalonians 5:1-4King James Version (KJV)
5 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
Jesus will return to rule the world after the Tribulation for 1000 years. In this time will be the judgement of those left standing. It will be a time of unbridled joy in the hearts of all who have believed in Him and His Father. In the past I would not write all of this. I didn’t know with any certainty that the end times would be upon us so soon. Even Jesus said that the day and the hour is known only to God so I kept quiet. Now I want to give reassurance that, if this is indeed the end times (I am not positive but for the signs) I want to, at the very least, allow you the time to consider this. If you think I am out of my head, fine. I may be. However, I do not write these things without beig fairly sure that what I am seeing (and what many others are now seeing and discussing) is what has been written about for millennia.
