In the whole scheme of things, God is in charge. Many times we say that. Do we really understand what it means. As the news unfolds each and every day, prophecy teachers get out the Word of God to examine every detail of the current events. It seems like so many things are happening that it is hard to keep up with it all.
We have been saying for quite awhile that Israelís conflagration grows closer. No matter what the White House does, it doesnít help. The Palestinians are still fireing rockets at Israel. Our daily headlines straight from Jerusalem mention this fact. It also says that Syria is getting in the act also. They want to buy missles, planes, tanks, and other ammo from Iran. Does this sound familiar? Russia has edged toward backing Iran against the USA and the E.U. China also is not set on the problems that Iran sets. China is one that is building up her own arsenal. Now North Korea is wanting to test fire rockets as well. With all the scenarioís playing out, we see this war coming sooner than quicker.
Moreover, on the domestic scene I have been getting alot of emails from those in the economic, money, and gold standard trade. The rising interest, the high debt, and the costs of Iraq are fueling itself into a economic bomb. This could go off. The experts who I have been reading have said that 2008 is what many think the next drop will be. Real Estate in some corners are dropping drastically. Meanwhile in the west Oil and gas drilling are at the highest rates in years. The experts believe when 2008 hits or close to that date, the economic will go bust. They believe (some not all) that this will be one of the worst we have had.
With all this happening, the trouble in America will probably escalate. Put in a bad hurricane or two. Then stir in a bomber or nuclear event in one of our major cities then you have it. This end scenario will be in full gear then. The anti-christ forces are gathering for the one world government. America stands in the way. For many who want this government, they see it as a way to stop an aggressive and much too powerful America. Already the U.N. is talking about Gun control in America. The president of the N.R.A. brought this to our attention in the last two days. If the U.N. had its way all guns would be removed from our hands.
The conflagration is coming. The sides are lining up as we speak. You have to be ready. Are you? What are you looking for the Lord? The Rapture? or what? Scripture tells us when:
Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Many prophecy teachers are dispensationalists. They also are pre-trib rapture people. As a result, many today are not ready to see too much trouble. They believe that they will be taken out in a rapture before all this takes place. Well, my friend, nowhere in scripture does it tell you to watch for the rapture. In Revelation only one church is told they would escape the trouble coming. Read it for yourself. We have way too much emphasis on this event. Jesus told both of us what to do concerning the trouble coming.
Here is what Jesus Christ said for you to do!
Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
I urge you therefore to do just that. Now also donít forget to pray for the needs and salvation of others. The troubles coming are on our doorstep. Fears and anguish will come upon this nation in a moments notice. The Lord, however, is in charge. No matter when or if the Rapture comes as you expect. Donít lose hope. The Lord is still in charge. Seek Him with all your heart. He will provide you with peace, comfort, and guidance.
I want to remind you to not trust in America, your bank account, where you live, or any other worldly item to see you through. The Lord is shaking all things. The only thing unshakeable is our faith centered in Jesus Christ
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
