We, who study our Bibles, know there is a time coming that the Bible tells us is a time of Jacob’s Trouble, or a time of tribulation. Many of us try to understand what we read in the Bible. We are given much information about what will ensue. However, the Lord has not given strong details. Prophecies are given throughout the Scriptures, but many are hidden. The Lord has done this intentionally, hiding the actual facts from Satan. Prayer will lead us to the truth of what Jesus wants us to know.
Most Christians believe that we are living in the end times. We spend time reading the early prophets along with the book of Revelation, to help us learn what Jesus reveals to us, He knows there is going to come a time when we, without Jesus’ help, could be terrified at what will transpire during the end times. There will be shocking events, earthquakes, wars, rumors of wars, and many deceitful men, acting as if they were the Christ.
When you read about what will happen in these terrible times, times like no other, you will be comforted by Jesus when you seek His compassion. The Jews will be gathered by the Lord, and they will know He is the Messiah. He will hide them and protect them. They will know His word gives
assurance. He says in Hebrews13:5b, I will never leave you nor forsake you.
We entered the first stage of the new world order in August, 1990. President Bush and other political leaders informed us this was happening. Since that time, President Obama is carrying out the orders given to them by a shadow government. The government reacts in programmed crises such as the ones we are experiencing now. Who doesn’t know about “Occupy Wall Street? Now we are experiencing the crisis of a NATO objection. The streets of Chicago are filled with people and policemen with clubs, keeping the crowd at bay.
May I make a prediction? I believe the crises will be so great by the time of the election in November that Obama will declare a state of emergency and call out the militia. Our government leader, probably George Bush, or Bill Clinton, will declare that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights be suspended. We will lose all rights and the New World Order will be established with Obama at its head. I do not think this is a far-fetched idea.
I believe this will be a time of chaos and will be a time of deceit such as our government has never experienced before. Christians need to stand together and rely on Jesus. He is the only one who has, and can, and will save His people.
However, while we look for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, we need to know there is a counterfeit Christ coming on a white horse with a bow in his arms. Shun him. He is not the Messiah, though he claims to be him. He will be used by Satan to try to give us a mark that will identify us. If we take it, we will be killed.
Consider this a warning because I feel we are in the early stages of the seven-year tribulation. I recommend you read the book of Revelation.
