Moving Toward Peace and Safety Ultimately Means Destruction, Part 1

It is impossible for the world to have one huge global system of governance without proper surveillance measures in place throughout. It’s not for our safety though, but for the convenience and safety of the elite.

Politics as Usual and the Recent Parisian Terrorist Attacks

As I’ve long suspected, Muslim terrorists are being “used” by the elite to establish their purposes throughout the world. What the average person sees as individual terrorist events that simply occur out of nowhere, are – I believe – controlled events that are designed to unseat certain leaders while creating an atmosphere of fear and panic throughout the world. Once the elite no longer need these terrorists, I believe they will be quickly be dispatched and put down by this same elite.

Terrorism, Paris, ISIS, and the Christian Response

It wasn’t long after the tragedies began to subside when I heard people on the news talking about what should occur in Paris, which had essentially gone into full lock-down or Martial Law mode. The view that there should be more police, more military, more law enforcement who would be given greater powers to stop anyone they felt needed to be questioned. These law enforcement officials would also have carte blanche to go into anyone’s home without proper written documentation, place people under house arrest, and essentially have the wide-open abilities that are normally provided under a police state.

Prophecies of Daniel 2, Part 5

Note that God chose to reveal the mystery of the king’s dreams to Daniel during the night. The revelation came as a direct response to the prayers of these godly men and as Constable points out, James says as much in James 4:2-4. There, James points out the problems associated with not received answers to our prayers. The exact opposite is seen in Daniel and his four friends. We could easily follow this up with James 5:16, which states, “Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”

You Are a Fragrance to the World

I’m willing to bet that even as Paul set off for Damascus where he chased down Christian after Christian (these were Jews who had converted, not Gentile Christians) in anger (Acts 8:3), God was busy using Paul’s recollections of Stephen’s death and the forgiveness he had evidenced for his murderers to thoroughly soften Paul’s heart. It worked. Though he may have begun in a form of righteous anger immediately after the death of Stephen, God would not let Paul off the hook, so He continued to bring that scene to his mind repeatedly. I imagine Paul’s recollection of that event and his trying to convince himself that Stephen “deserved” it was part of what gave Paul his anger toward Jewish Christians. But God used that for other purposes and God won the day.

Why Did God Tell Zedekiah to Surrender to Nebuchadnezzar?

So does the situation with Zedekiah and Israel provide us with information that is helpful for Christians today, who live in such a corrupt nation as America? I’m treading very lightly here when I say that I believe there is an application that Christians can apply to their own lives. I would also like to issue a caution flag. You, the reader, are ultimately responsible for how you perceive not only God’s Word, but how you receive what I (or anyone) teach. Take what I say and compare them with Scripture. If you believe I have missed the mark, then so be it. You need to follow what you believe God states or implies in His Word. As for me, I believe God is getting me to see that resistance to a corrupt government is often futile and causes more problems. I’m not talking about resisting criminals in day to day living. I’m talking about the people that God has allowed to be in leadership positions and who oversee the laws of this nation and the tone that is created in society because of that.

God Told Zedekiah to Surrender to Nebuchadnezzar

Jeremiah had been warning about the eventual fall of Jerusalem, precipitated by Nebuchadnezzar, but it did finally arrive. The day came and it came with a vengeance. Can you imagine living inside a city where you know there is an army outside, building ramps and things in order to be able to get into your city? Let’s remember what God had said to King Zedekiah. He said that if Zedekiah went out to the officers (to surrender), all would be well. Oh, he would be taken captive, but he would survive along with his entire household. Moreover, Jerusalem would not be trashed and burnt to the ground.
