Each day brings us a day closer to seeing our Redeemer coming in the clouds and gathering his elect. But we know before that brilliant time happens, there will be many dark days beforehand. What’s coming ahead - in the next few MONTHS – in our country and around the world as a consequence of legal (or illegal) decisions by courts and our leaders?
Look at our own country – the USA – or if you’re in another country, I’m sure you can see the “signs” in your country too:
***5 unelected black-robed jurists decided to redefine marriage (we DO appreciate the four who spoke out against it). The five said “marriage” now includes people of same sex, going against God’s clear Bible teaching on this and millennia of experience. What will be the consequences – intended or unintended – to this massage, illicit ruling? I’ll discuss that briefly.
***Our president and his team have just handed the go-ahead for Iran – ancient Persia of Biblical times – to build a nuclear bomb. What on earth were they thinking? Their leaders incite large crowds to chant “Death to America”. This regime has not been known to be truthful or trustworthy on its promises… and we negotiate with them on a nuclear bomb? Just amazing. This could cause the Sunni Muslim countries all around to seek their own bomb as well (Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, etc.). This dangerous world just got a whole lot more dangerous. And now we find out that Iran is its own inspector in one of its most secretive bases. What?
*** One of the more subtle but powerful things happening is that our president and his administration and elected leaders of our cities and states are often deciding to IGNORE certain laws they don’t like, or to not enforce the laws of the land. SO – we are seeing the quality of life crash (people urinating in the streets of NY City, for example), we’re seeing 30,000 or more convicted felons being released back into the streets (especially if they had non-violent crimes on their record like selling heroin on the streets), and – all this emboldens the other side to push their agenda. I really believe when our president refused to enforce DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act), that the homosexual forces were emboldened by their ally in the White House. This was the same president who instantly bathed the White House – the People’s House! – in LGBT colors upon hearing the Supreme Court’s decision.
***Our Identification (I.D.) papers – passports, driver’s licenses, etc. are being produced today in such a way as to help keep track of you. You may be surprised what’s in all of this. I’ll speak more of it in the sermon. It’s mind-boggling.
***The stock market is beginning to tank again with issues involving China right now. MANY predicted this. This is, after all, the 7th year since the last drop – and could it be that we truly are in the 7th year of release again, the “Shemita year” that began with the Feast of Trumpets 2014 and ends this year in just a few weeks? There have been many who have spoken on this and maybe I’ll add my voice to theirs, but many went before me.
***I think we are also setting the stage for all and any of us to be easily tracked – by our Facebook, smart phones, the many apps we have on the “smart phones” that follow you wherever you go. Someday we will realize these “smart” phones were a dumb and dangerous thing for many of us. Mark my word. Because of our social networking, it will be an easy thing to round up anyone associated with you and me.
***Congress has passed, and the president has signed, some very serious martial law orders for certain circumstances. I think probably less than 2% of our population has any idea what the president and his forces have been empowered to do if “the situation warrants it.” Say good bye to your constitutional freedoms if or when that time comes. I’ll say more about that when I give the sermon on this blog’s topic.
What are some of the unforeseen and unintended consequences of all this? What are some of the consequences of the ruling redefining marriage? And why are so many of God’s people, perhaps even YOU – why are so many remaining silent, doing nothing, saying nothing about the trends we see going on? Silence is often interpreted as going along with the topic at hand, or at least not being all that concerned about it. This emboldens evil doers and ultra-liberals who want to foist their agenda on us all. Can God’s children really be silent in the face of the slide going on? I realize these were prophesied to happen, but there are still things expected of God’s children, as we shall see.
