Littleton Green Community School Threatens to Classify Students as Racists if They Miss Islamic Field Trip
The world is being guided by a complete delusion. How else can we explain the fact that people will come out of the woodwork to defend Islam, yet continue to castigate conservative Christians?
It certainly seems as though the world is going crazy. It is because it has rejected God too many times. God is now throwing them over to themselves just as He did in Romans 1. Their consciences are becoming seared and soon, they will do whatever they want without any sense of pity or remorse.
The evangelical movement away from supporting Israel isn’t new. But reading a column on WND entitled “Look who’s switching sides in Israeli-Arab conflict” more less drove home a point that is decidedly disturbing. Evangelical Christians have been the backbone of support for the state of Israel since 1948. The reason for this is because evangelical Christians know that Israel is the fulfillment of God’s everlasting covenant with his people, which CANNOT be broken.
It was a profound and complete corruption and incompetence that results from lawlessness. Sound familiar? It’s like looking at a societal reflection of what Rome was and America is becoming and we see it unfolding in all the daily news columns. Can we turn back the tide and “come back” to our senses? No. We’ve gone too far off the path. We crossed the proverbial line in the sand. America is a culture in complete decay, and while many would like to hold on to the belief that we’re somehow going to rise from the ashes again, it’s not possible. We’re not coming back. Something dreadfully new is coming to America and the world, but it is not what we hope it will be.
We then get into the “he” referenced in Daniel 9:27. Many people believe this “he” refers to Jesus Himself. Some even suggest that each incidence of “he” in this section of Scripture (verses 24 – 27) all refer to Jesus. If I understand the rules of grammar, I don’t see how that can be the case due mainly to the rule of the first antecedent.
Interesting that “respect for nature” comes first, isn’t it? This is different than what God said to Adam and Eve and then to Noah. “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground,” (Genesis 1:28).
This can only mean one thing. The “prince” here is the ruler of Rome who – along with his Roman soldiers – destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in AD 70. The same verse (26) tells us that the “end will come with a flood.” This most certainly has no reference to water, but to the flood of a military conquest. This is how this word is used when it is not directly referring to a body of water. It is a figure of speech. The end of Jerusalem came with a flood of army soldiers who destroyed Jerusalem and the Jewish Temple there.
So we know Daniel was thinking in terms of years. That is clear from the text and indisputable. When Gabriel arrives, he clarifies for Daniel that it is not seventy years, but in reality it will wind up being seventy sevens of years. Seventy sevens of years equal a total of 490 years (70 x 7). This is where the 490 years come from and provides the total number of prophetic years in which God has decreed for Israel and the Holy City. This then, is God’s timeframe; 490 years.
Logic should tell us that things are not getting better, but they are in fact, getting worse. We have a government that is, for the most part, sold out to the Global Elite. Because of that, those who are puppets in DC are there to simply do the bidding of those who placed them there. There is no intention on their part to fix our economy. Their intention is to further destroy it because the Global Elite needs that to happen. This will create a greater dependence on the government, which will in turn, remove more of our freedoms.
Because we have been raised with Christ, we are to cling to Him and continue seeking those things which are above. We are to “grow up” in Him. In order to do these things, we must – as John says in 1 John 3 – fix our minds on the fact that He is one day returning. This one fact will cause us to throw off those things that are worthless and focus on and do the things that are worthwhile (in God’s eyes).
The Tribulation is another area of controversy. Is there an area of Scripture that is not controversial, we might ask? The Tribulation is described as a period of time – seven years – in which God pours out His wrath onto this world and humanity. He does this for two reasons: 1) to purify Israel and gather to Himself the final Remnant of Jews, and 2) to judge the people of the world for how they have continued to reject Him as God and for how they have treated Israel, the apple of His eye.
