The problems are bad and getting worse every day. That is not exactly a newflash right? What is news is why?
This world has been given problems it cannot solve so mankind will be forced to look outside himself for answers. The problems this world faces are so big and so bad that they will require supernatural assistance to solve them.
The fact that supernatural assistance will be required to solve this world's problems sets the stage for the end times drama which will force mankind to pick a side. The grey area that so many people choose to dwell in is quickly fading away. Now the only answers mankind will be presented are supernatural answers.
One of those supernatural answers will be presented in the form of the anti-christ. Because of what is inside most people (their spiritual composition) they will choose this 'answer.'
Of course, there is another answer and His name is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
The interesting thing about this end time story is neither side will allow a grey area. No longer will mankind be allowed to sit on the sidelines and play spiritual indifference. Everyone will be forced to choose a side. Proof?
Rev 13:11Then I saw another beast come up out of the earth. He had two horns like those of a lamb, but he spoke with the voice of a dragon.12He exercised all the authority of the first beast. And he required all the earth and its people to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13He did astounding miracles, even making fire flash down to earth from the sky while everyone was watching. 14And with all the miracles he was allowed to perform on behalf of the first beast, he deceived all the people who belong to this world. He ordered the people to make a great statue of the first beast, who was fatally wounded and then came back to life. 15He was then permitted to give life to this statue so that it could speak. Then the statue of the beast commanded that anyone refusing to worship it must die.
16He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead.17And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name.18Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.cHis number is 666.d
Notice with me, that all the earth and its people will be required to worship this beast. Also notice that everyone-small and great, rich and poor, free and slave must take the mark in order to buy or sell. I don't see any exclusions in there for blacks or whites or liberals or conservatives, or atheists or muslims. No, ALL will be required to pick a side. Glory to God.
This ^^ is where everything we see happening today is headed.
One of the most respected forecasters in the world is telling us the one world currency is just around the corner and the economic crash that begins this fall (October 2015) is the beginning of it. I have had countless people tell me "yea, my children will have to deal with it but I will never see it." Really?
This world has been given unsolvable problems so that we will tilt our heads back, and look up to our Creator to give Him thanks, and ask for the help that we need. That help, that miracle power resides in Christ for us who are in Christ to call upon in our time of need.
This is important to understand as we look at the world around us. We are witnessing a spiritual war being played out in the sight of men. The stakes are being increased on a daily basis and we as mere mortals are hopelessly outmatched if we attempt to solve spiritual, supernatural problems with mortal means. Its just not going to happen. And those who continue to solve the problems we face with mortal means are doomed to frustration and failure.
To make a long story short, we have a God in heaven who is looking at us and wondering what we are going to decide to do? When are we going to get on our knees and humble ourselves before Him? When are we going to start remembering everything He has done for us in the past and give Him thanks for it? Then when are we going to pray in faith for the miracle working power that is in Christ and waiting for you?
This is the work this nobody has been sent to do today. Testify to the power that is ready and waiting for each and every one of you in Christ. Miracles and eye watering displays of spiritual power are a reality right now today for those who believe. That's a fact. And so none of us has any excuse not to call on our Lord, let us remember that this power is not reserved for the "somebody" of this world, it is reserved for the "nobody."
1 Cor 1:26Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthyg when God called you. 27Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 28God chose things despised by the world,h things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. 29As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.
The servant who writes to you today is among the most foolish, the most powerless and the most despised. How much more will the Lord do for you than what has been done for me? If there is something that is coming through from the Lord loud and clear it is this: call upon Him and believe. Through faith and patience you too will see the power and presence of our Lord in your own life. When the Lord shows up for you, you will truly and deeply understand that your problems have been solved. His presence and His power are the answer.
grace and peace
