"Beam me up Scotty" is a well known phrase right out of the 60's and familiar to Trekkies throughout the world. Right before our eyes we would watch Capt. Kirk vanish into thin air, transported to a completely different location. Classic Sci Fi at it's best. Can this happen in real life ? Absolutely !
Born again Christians call it the 'rapture'. The taking out or transportation of Christians to another dimension called Heaven. II Thess. 4:15-18. Could it be in our time and generation ? Absolutely !
World events are happening at breakneck speed to a climatic end of this age and life on this planet as we know it. Change is coming...but not the change we had in mind. Are you ready ?
America, our great nation built on Christian principles and morals, has to be broken before the New World Order or Global power takes it's place on center stage. A superpower that will rule the world under one government and one leader (Anti-Christ). II Thess 2:7-12. This will come about through current economic and financial crisis that convince the masses that our only answer to the the worlds problems is to go Global. Like the dawning of a new day the New World Order will rise and shine brightly to become the dominant world power.
Amidst todays anxieties and fear's we find ourselves asking questions...who is trustworthy and honest enough to lead us down the right path ? What preparations do I need to make if a national disaster would strike ? What should I do about my investments ? What if there is a 'rapture' of believers and some of my loved ones disappear ?
If you doubt the validity of God's Book then you are already standing on shakey ground. His Word is TRUTH. It is the history of mankind from beginning to end. It tells us what events will lead up to the climatic end of this age. It explains clearly what we must do to prepare ourselves for the coming meltdown of America. What are those preparations ?
#1 Rid yourself of any emotional baggage. These are negative feelings and thoughts from the past and present that you haven't taken care of : broken relationships, unforgiveness, strife between family members, gossip, jealousy, envy, lie's and deceit. Anything that would be detrimental to healing and keep you from moving forward as a whole person. Gal. 5:19-26
#2 Live one day at a time. This isn't just lyrics from a song. Don't borrow on tomorrow, next week, next month, worrying about things that may never happen. Take care of your TODAY'S.
#3 Put your finances in order. Money problems can steal your TODAY'S of peace causing deep wounds in your relationship between spouse, family and friends.
#4 Believe His Word. Take the Bible as the gospel TRUTH, God breathed and relavent for today's living. II Tim. 3:16-17
#5 Trust in God. It's on our currency so why don't we trust. Believe He's in control, all powerful and Sovreign over earthly matters. Confess your shortcomings and turn your life over to Him. His Spirit will come into your life and empower you to face any obstacles that come your way. Remember, Jesus rested in the boat while the storm raged around Him. A reminder to us that we can have this 'peace' in the midst of turmoil and chaos. Titus 2:11
#6 Look up ! I believe we are that generation that will see world events fall into place leading up to the coming of Christ as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Believers or those who have put their trust in Him will be taken out (raptured) before the tribulation hour when God's judgements will fall upon rebellious and wicked nations that refuse to believe in Him, just like the days of Noah before the flood. It's all recorded in the Book from beginning to end...read it, believe it and someday soon I'll meet you in the air. "Beam me up Lord" Maranatha
