Why do I think time is short for this world? I suppose a good place to start would be all the signs Jesus listed as signs of the end of the age. Of those signs, the primary one was deception.
Matt 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many
Of all the ways Jesus could have answered the question, he answered by warning us of DECEPTION. We live in an age of unparalleled deception. Here's an example of some of the deception going on these days. Did you know that each friday for the past 4-5 weeks, another BANK FAILURE has been announced? They announce these bank failures on fridays in order to not shock the stock market, using the weekend as a 'cooling off' period. When small banks fail, its troubling, but nothing like what will happen when a BIG bank fails. Todays financial system stands because these big banks are all interdependant. One big bank owes another big bank, who owes another etc etc. When one of these big banks fails, the chances are great that the entire financial system comes tumbling down. What happens when the entire financial system collapses? Chaos. Have you been watching the US gov't bailing out big banks over the past months? Just this weekend I read about another large bank in trouble. Here's a recent headline for you: Former I.M.F. Economist Predicts Big Bank Failure
We know what's coming: a one world government, a one world economy where no man can buy or sell without the mark. The satanic elite that rule this world have a saying: ORDO AB CHAO
also know as ORDER OUT OF CHAOS. They create the chaos, then they create order from that chaos. The "order" that's coming is called the new world order. How far off is the mass chaos? I just told you. Let one of these big banks fail and we'll see what happens. As if that were not enough, there's also the tension between the US and Russia now, the possible US/Israeli strike on Iran in the coming weeks. The world as you know it hangs on a razors edge.
I have mentioned before that maybe a year or two ago I asked the Lord how much time was left, and he asnwered me with a question. He asked me how many "normal days" I thought were left. I don't think there are many "normal days" left. What are normal days? Ones without worldwide chaos perhaps. Days without wholesale lawlessness. Certainly the lawlessness is increasing, but we have'nt seen anything yet. Look around, how many "normal" days do you think this world has before everything turns upside down? Remember, the lame stream media does everything in its power to hide from you the truth of what this world is in for. They are a "free press" that is, free to report on everything that DOESNT MATTER, but NOT FREE to report on anything that does matter.
There is an escape from what's coming on this world. Read Luke 21:36, Rev 3:10, Luke 17, Matt 24-25, Acts 16:31. Ask the Lord to open your eyes. Pray that you may see the world the way He sees it. In Matt 25, the parable of the virgins, all the virgins were caught sleeping when the Lord came back, but some still had oil in their lamps, symbolic of the Holy Spirit within them. Let's not be sleeping when our master shows up. Let us pray that our lamps may be topped of with oil today. Let us, in obedience, pray for escape as we are instructed to in Luke 21:36. This is a wicked world, our kingdom is yet to come, but its coming soon. Be of good cheer, our Lord has overcome this world. grace and peace
