The merry go round continues. If it isn't the United Nations, its the strange group of leaders in Europe. All trying vainly to stop crazy dictators and terrorism regimes from starting a world war.
In the middle east itís the same bowl of stale nuts. From the leaders in Israel who continually make concessions for peace and get terror instead to those negotiating with Iran. The wheels spin and the vehicle gets nowhere. You would think that Israel learned her lesson. They left Lebanon and the terrorist took over with the intent to prepare for war. Israel left Gaza and terrorist took over and prepared for war. Its easy to understand. It is three letters. W-A-R. Simple, it means death and destruction, blood and tears, hate and bitterness. Simple, isn't it. Do you understand yet? They hate Israel. They want war. They want Israel dead and gone. Understand? Just like Iran. They want Israel dead as well. What about the USA?
Well, it would be nice if we could negotiate with terrorist like Israel. Wait a minute. Has that done any good? Nope! The US and its allies (if we really have any) have a bitterness directed to them. The simple fact again. Its three letters. W-A-R. They hate us as well. Why? Maybe itís the covert actions we have been doing for decades in other nations. We buy nations, sell nations, destroy people, kill leaders, and raise up civil war in nations we want to bring down. We use other peoples oil and wealth, take what we want and then expect them to love us.
But, we give so much to other nations? Yes we do, but that does nothing to negate the fact of our past covert sins and power plays in other nations. Of course, our backing Israel is another thing they hate us for.
In all, they hate us for our wealth, freedoms, way of life, and most of all, just being American. We love freedom, fun, and prosperity. Many of those who hate us, see us as the Great Satan. In a documentary the other day I saw, there were Americans capturing a Muslim who was a terrorism. He was crying out loud "Satan..Satan...Satan" over and over. They don't see their spilling of innocent blood as anything hateful. They just see us and all we are as Satanic. Simply put by the Ayatollah in Iran: "America is the great Satan".
Moreover, this short phrase has become the rallying cry for thousands of terrorist world wide. Nothing come short of our being destroyed will stop them. The problem is, our lifestyles here are closer to proving they are correct than making them believe otherwise. Of course they feel all those who are not Muslims are infidels. But look at our Abortions, Rapes, Murders, Militant Homosexuality, Promiscuity, and Fornicating ways. It proves to them we are Satan in the flesh.
All these items put together form a trail. I call it a 'spectral trail'. Spectral, from Spectra. Spectra, a broad range of related values, qualities, or activities. They form a trail which is leading to the rise of the Anti-Christ, or the 'Son of Perdition (destruction) 2 Thess 2. It is a time of unprecedented lawlessness. In a time when the world needs law and order, the characteristics will be one of the opposite. It will be at the zenith peak of this time period of lawlessness that this deceiver will ride in on his popularity and ability to bring peace.
This person is now in the waiting wings. The terrorist, Muslims, and the world will not wait. Today the UN tries vainly to bring peace around the world. In fact, the UN many times just put troops in a situation and these same people just watch things happen. Nothing gets done. Lawless ways continue even with UN troops in the area. The Spectral trail of Judgment is here. That time when all man has reaped will come to a peak. A time when the sins of men will find them out. A time when hidden things will be revealed. This time is here.
If you are a believer and expecting world peace. You need to read the bible again. It clearly reveals the time coming.
Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
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.
While men and nations from the US, Europe, and the UN try to bring world stability in the midst of chaos, the trouble will come anyway. The trail is there to see if you look close. Man cannot solve the problems. Israel and the USA cannot bargain their way out of hatred and war. War will come as a result of hatred. Chaos is headed our way. For those who are troubled, don't be. You are to Look up, for your redemption draweth nigh. As the trouble increases, let your heart rise up to meet the Lord, who is bigger than all these troubles.
After all, he is in charge. He is the Lord, the Governor of the nations.
