These Are the End Times We’ve Been Hearing About…

If the people of my generation are leaving God behind and embracing all forms of idolatry and sin, how much more difficult will it be for young people of today to become and remain anchored to God now? Every generation must ask the question: what will they do with God? Starting out strong is wonderful. Remaining strong to the end is preferred and too many are not ending on that note. Too many are like Susan in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, who finds the things of this world too alluring to avoid. In the end, she shuts down her once thriving affection for Aslan, exchanging it for the love of the world.

Will Things Really Change Under a Trump Presidency?

I’m hopeful that one day, more Christians will wake up to the fact that, while God has all things under His sovereign control, He is – according to His revelation in Scripture – allowing Satan to do whatever he can in order to bring his promises of Isaiah 14 to fruition. Satan has deigned to be “like the Most High” (Isaiah 14:14), and God is allowing him to attempt to make that happen. God will use it for His glory and will ultimately dethrone Satan upon His return. Until that time though, it seems clear enough that the less we rely on the government to accomplish anything good, the better off we will be.

Are Patriotism and Christianity Essentially the Same?

We cannot emphasize this enough. It is not about saving America because according to the Bible, an evil one is coming who will completely take over and rule the entire world. America might still be called “America” at that point, but it will most certainly not be the America that was founded by our founding fathers. When Jesus returns physically to this earth, do we actually believe He’s going to allow America to remain as America? In point of fact, He will set up His Millennial Kingdom over which He Himself will rule from His father David’s throne in Jerusalem. There will be nothing throughout the earth that He does not control. He will reign supreme for 1,000 years and nothing will deter His rule. There will not be a “president” of the United States and if is very possible that the U.S. won’t even exist at that point. Yet, patriots and Christians alike continue to spend endless hours fighting for a country while people die into eternity to the tune of 150,000 per day. Does this make any sense?

Today’s Millennials are the Brainwashed Masses

But among these people there are also too many who have been brainwashed by Big Pharma and Big Foods and who refuse to acknowledge that Western medicine doesn’t know everything. In fact, there are many things in place to keep people from walking away from the medical profession (except in emergencies) and trying to take control of their health through proper eating and drinking, along with vitamin and mineral intake. Think about the fact that God has given our bodies the ability to heal itself. It’s not something out of a comic book! However, much of what people eat and many of the medical treatment programs used by people are not designed to make or keep us healthy. I think we have a tremendous responsibility to treat our bodies as the temples they are and we are not doing that if we are eating and drinking garbage and then when we naturally get sick, we run to the doctor’s office for a prescription.

What Can We Expect or Hope For Now that Election is Over?

Why did God speak (through prophets) so far ahead of events to prophesy that they were coming? For two reasons. First, God wanted everyone in Israel (and oftentimes the world itself), to know that what He said would come to pass would come to pass and He would use prophets to foretell these events way before the actual events themselves so that no one could claim to have seen it coming through situations of the times. Second, because it gave plenty of time for Israel to repent, turn around, and begin seeking God’s face again.

Election Day and God’s Purposes Still Move Forward

The Bible says that “except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” (Matthew 24:22). This doesn’t mean that the upcoming specific period of time is shortened so much that it means that it has a predefined specific amount of time to it when that time is up, He returns. If God simply let things go on and on, no one would survive. He would have nothing to come back to but thankfully, that will not happen. Nonetheless, this world is building consistently toward that period of upcoming darkness when relatively few will survive. However, eternity follows our very brief time here on this corrupt, dying, soon-to-be-destroyed earth, and that is what all Christians are to actually long for, look for, and understand.

Ten Kings, the Antichrist, and the New World Order, Part 6

But who is the “he” in this verse. There are many who lump all of the pronouns “he” together in Daniel 9:24-27 as referring to Jesus, or Messiah. This would be incorrect simply because of the law of first antecedent, meaning that the “he” in verse 27 must be referring back to the closest actual noun or person. We need to figure out who that noun is before we can continue. If it is Jesus, how would He make a covenant and then do something to halt the sacrifices halfway through the week? Historically, any time the sacrifices have ceased it has been due to something bad, something that desolated the Temple area and we’ve talked about the incident in 168 BC with Antiochus Epiphanes IV previously, which is an excellent example (cf. Daniel 8).
