People the world over are sick to their stomach's of the wretched corrupt politicians they have been given. What they do not realize is people get the leaders they deserve, not the ones they vote for.
|Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority
except that which God has established.
Obama is the president America deserves, Tsipras is what the Greeks deserve for there is no authority except that which God has established.
The political class has gone from bad to worse because the people have gone from bad to worse. Acceptance of porn, a culture that glorifies death (through war), promotion of homosexuality etc these things do not occur in a vacuum. The people have to accept it, the people have to push God out to let sin in. It is a decision people make.
So what does this have to do with anti-Christ. The stage is set right now for anti-Christ to step onto the stage. Look across the political spectrum, about the only world leader who has any backbone whatsoever is Russia's Putin. All the rest of the so called "leaders" have the backbone of a ramen noodle. Problem, reaction, solution. The problem is there is no leadership. The reaction we are seeing today with people like Trump leading the republican presidential hopefuls. The solution will be the anti-Christ stepping onto the world stage and the entire world wondering after him.
In every possible way this world is ready for anti-Christ. The people have been prepared to accept anti-Christ because they have rejected Jesus Christ. They will be given what they asked for (a world without Christ) but I do not think they are fully prepared for all the consequences.
The people who look to this world for solutions, will be given a worldly 'solution' akin to Hitler's final solution. They want a leader (but not Jesus Christ) they will be given a leader. This problem has its roots thousands of years ago in a faithless people who wanted to act, walk and talk like this world (Israel) and too many in the Church has followed in their exact footsteps.
1 Samuel 8:4Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah, 5And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations. 6But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD. 7And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. 8According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee. 9Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.
"Shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them" is what is happening right now. A king with fierce countenance approaches to reign over this world because their true King has been rejected:
Daniel 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
This world needs to understand that they are about to get the full measure of what they have been asking for and it will end in horror.
Time is short. The world stage has already been set, all that is left is for the starting gun to fire. I believe the Lord in His mercy has given the true Church an escape from all that is about to happen. He told us to pray that we will be able to escape all that is about to happen. Let us pray for this great escape from all and give thanks for one of the greatest acts of deliverance this world has ever seen.
grace and peace
