For all their bluster, pride, conceit, and seeming unstoppable power, the Globalists who have been attempting to bring about a one-world system (economic, religious, and social) cannot control everything. God has his say and He takes charge of many of the resources of this earth throughout the Tribulation period to prove to these elitists that they control nothing! They are powerless to keep God from doing whatever He will to His Creation and He reminds them of that fact repeatedly.
It is this “prince” that will come one day and will take control of the entire world before Jesus returns at the end of the Tribulation. It is this “he/prince” that the first use of “he” in Daniel 9:27 is pointing. This individual will be the one who brokers a seven-year covenant with Israel and the Arab nations that surround her. Why would Jesus do that? He wouldn’t, so it must be referring to another “prince,” someone Paul calls the “man of lawlessness” (2 Thessalonians 2).
When Hamas was asked why they weren’t better at aiming their rockets into Israel, one terrorist replied, “We do aim them, but their God changes their path in mid-air.” So while they give credit to Israel’s God, they refuse to think of the ramifications of that testimony.
How is any of this the Church’s fault? It’s not. Jesus changed one life at a time. It is our job to bring people to Him through evangelization so that He will continue to do that. Jesus is not about changing society. He’s about changing individuals. Yes, they can then go out and create some change in society but that is not the real picture.
We know all too well that God has rained fire (and sometimes brimstone) down from heaven. In fact, a clay tablet that was literally unreadable for over 150 years after its discovery became readable after scientists discovered the key to understanding it. It points to a date “shortly before dawn on June 29 in the year 3123 B.C.”
Christians and those who hold to a religious ideology (with the possible exception of Islam) will be seen as anathema. They will be seen as the problem that keeps the state from becoming even greater. As such, the options will be limited. Change or die. Those who worship the one, true God in Jesus, will in no way separate themselves from their loyalty and allegiance to Him. Thus, their end is assured.
The famine that will affect the entire world when the rider in Seal 3 is released does not simply or merely affect humanity. It will affect the animal kingdom as well. Animals will find food wherever they can and if that means killing (or eating already dead) humans, so be it. Instinct will push these animals to find a way to survive and their first, most important instinct is to survive by eating food. For animals, it really doesn’t matter where the food comes from, whether other animals or human beings. To carnivores, meat is meat and there will be plenty of human beings around for animals to forage on. It would also not surprise me if human being turn on one another and begin eating each others in order to survive.
But notice also that in this same passage of Scripture, all of this – from John’s perspective – still represents only one beast. What that means is that all previous empires though defeated, simply segue from one into another. By the time the Roman Empire rises, it has incorporated aspects of all previous empires. We see this clearly in verse 2 when we note that this beast coming up out of the sea has feet like a bear, a mouth like a lion, and overall, was like a leopard. This beasts power comes from the dragon – Satan. This final beast is an enlargement of the old Roman Empire.
We’re all familiar with the hate-filled rantings of people like past President Ahmadinejad, whose invective against Israel is renowned. He has called for the obliteration of Israel as a nation and has vowed to not rest until all Jewish people are gone from the Middle East. Many in the Middle East believe that Israel has no right to exist and no right to be there. Many of them also deny the Holocaust and believe that Israel should never have been given any land to become a nation in 1948 because they claim that Israel never was a nation in that area of the world. What can you do with people like that? They are radical hatemongers where Israel is concerned and too many in America have taken up that battle cry.
It appears that Mark Dice – due to his friendships with Muslims in California (he is based in San Diego, CA) – is frustrated with the amount of disinformation that he blames on the media concerning Islam and even the Palestinian situation. I cannot help but wonder which media he is referring to here because there is precious little from the American media that even deigns to speak ill of Islam in any way, shape, or form. Christianity? Not so much.
