Posted on 03/08/2014 4:24:54 AM PST by The Ignorant Fisherman
In this age of EXPONENTIAL advances in weaponry, in technology, 24/7 global media coverage etc. etc... There is ABSOLUTELY no more room for the nations of the world to isolate themselves from global influence. Even from a secular point of view the next world war will be this world's final. For those of us who grew up during the Cold War the threat of nuclear war was always present and we were always mindful that we could see a nuclear holocaust and the end of mankind. However when the Soviet Union fell that reality was removed from our world thinking and an "Utopian" vision of peace and the belief of the end of wars has taken its place. Today 25 years after the fall of the Soviet Union, a new world generation has been raised which knows no such nuclear threat and only has been taught that world peace is just around the corner. This dramatic change in global perception is not by any means of man but by the demonic design of the god of this world (John 8:44, Eph. 2:1-2, 6:12). No wonder the world shall say, "Peace and Safety, then sudden destruction shall engulf them (1 Thess. 5:3).
My dear friends, Satan (the god of this world) is a master politician and tactician. He fully knows fallen humanity inside and out and knows what bait and tactic to use to achieve his will. Lucifer is the master hunter, an evil genius, a master of deception and in his tactical planning he is lining up all his demonic ducks for his final showdown with Almighty God, his 666 global state and global worship (John 8:44, Matt. 24, 2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 13). Satan's goal these last 25 years has been to distract the world and have them look at the delusional straw-men of false hopes and aspirations of achieving world peace and a global utopia all the while arming and raising up his war pigs and nations to fulfill his final demonic agenda (1 Thess. 5:3, Rev. 6). With all the EXPONENTIAL advances in technology, weaponry and in media etc. etc... Satan is more powerful than ever to deceive and lead the global masses to fulfill his will. He knows that his moment is at hand to institute his final agenda and his demonic troops are on standby until after the rapture of the body of Christ and the removal of the Holy Spirit's presence (2 Thess. 2:3-12).
It will ONLY be when the ETERNAL Son of God (i.e. the risen Lamb) opens the Seals of Revelation (Rev. 5, 6) that Satan will then be able to release his Four Horsemen and begin his move to finally eliminate Almighty God's Divine judgment at Babel and breakthrough it's blockade of the nation's cultures, creeds, spiritual ideologies (i.e., religions), political ideologies (Gen. 10, 11:1-9, Rev. 13, 17:11-18) by global war, death, famine, pestilence (Rev. 6). It will be the use of humanity's godless war pigs and demonic hosts that he will absolutely break and pulverize humanity's spirit and reduce them to a unrepentant, hateful, wrathful, raging, bitter global mob with only one desire, to obliterate the REALITY of the ETERNAL Triune God, Almighty God's Two Witnesses, His 144,000 Jewish evangelists, Israel, and all those of the nations that call on the Name of the Messiah of Israel for RIGHTEOUSNESS and salvation (Dan. 7:21,25, Rev. 6-9, Rev. 11:7, 12, 13:7, 17:13-14).
My friend, Almighty God has flooded this world today with EXPONENTIAL access to his Word and saving message, but truly who will hear it? The EXPONENTIAL advances in technology have opened the doors for the TRUE Gospel message to reach all nations, tongues and kindreds and ALL are without excuse. Oh the ETERNAL GRACE and MERCY of Almighty God, who desires NONE to perish but ALL to repent and receive His pardon for the transgressions against His RIGHTEOUSNESS (John 3:16-17, Rom. 2:4, 2 Peter 3:9).
My friends, as the world in which we are living is at the crossroads of the Day of the Lord (John 3:36) may you not be one of those who choose to scoff at what will be and reject Almighty God's saving grace for your soul. Hear His voice today and be ye saved from the wrath which is at our door.
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
Two gigantic obstacles found in Christianity are first, the argument between predestination and foreordination.
That is, does God micromanage all things, or does He just decree outcomes and let everything and everyone find their way to them?
The trouble with predestination is that it assumes a constant contest between God and the devil about every possible event, from coin tosses and football games to wars.
And in doing so it does not just assume an omnipotent God, but a close to omnipotent devil as well.
When this argument is advanced, one of the first things said is to quote 19th Century Poet Charles Baudelaire, the French equivalent to Edgar Allen Poe, who said “The devil’s finest trick is to persuade you that he does not exist”, (”La plus belle des ruses du diable est de vous persuader qu’il n’existe pas.”)
However, there is a big difference between existing and being omnipotent.
The second Christian obstacle is in assuming that man is incapable of truly astonishing evil on his own, no help needed. It is so easy to blame the devil for such men as Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, etc., all the way down to low level serial killers, or even just ordinary criminals.
So why not take things at face value, that they were capable of doing these horrific acts on their own?
Because, at the same time, perhaps you can get a clearer picture of the devil, in the large field between just existing and being omnipotent. Whose actions are concealed by assumptions about him and them, as much as by his efforts.
I am an x-wing man myself.... yeah... like the Death Star.... lol
