DEATH OF A COUNTRY: Germany will become Islamic State, says Merkel
They are admitting they have every intention of continuing the trend of demolishing everything that was Europe in favor of a new Babylon. What are we seeing across the middle east and Europe? The birth and development of new Babylon. We do not have to guess at this one, it is Biblical fact. What is the doomed end time entity that the Bible calls out by name? Babylon
Rev 16:19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
add to this ^^ to entire chapters in Jeremiah (50-51) and an entire chapter in Isaiah (13) and you start to get the idea about Babylon. The Lord tells us a lot about this end time entity so we should not be surprised to see it grow before our eyes.
Everything is happening exactly as the Lord God said it would happen. Only an all powerful, all knowing God can do this. He saw the apostasy of Europe before it happened. How else could Europe be invaded with Islam unless Christianity was kicked out first? Light does not flee from darkness, darkness flees from light. If you remove the light (Christ Jesus), darkness moves in immediately. This is what we are seeing across the western world. Are there small lights that still exist across Europe? Of course, our Lord has believers everywhere:
Rev 5:9And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
The believers who remain in Europe must do what the Spirit of the Lord instructs them to do. They will each be given very specific instructions, personal to them as individuals and families. The Lord always takes care of His own. We too must also be listening to what the Spirit of the Lord says to us as individuals. The rest of the world is not so far behind Europe in their spiritual apostasy. We are all living 'behind enemy lines' in a spiritual sense, so we require very specific and timely instruction from the Lord to survive.
On a lighter note, as dark as it seems down here, the Lord is not troubled in the slightest by the overwhelming odds stacked against us. He seems to like it this way. Remember how things happened back at the Red Sea with Israel. Not exactly a promising scenario for Israel there, until of course the God of eternity split the Red Sea wide open and allowed Israel to cross unmolested. So it is today, once again believers have their backs up against another 'Red Sea.' The modern day forces of Pharaoh have aligned against us and our backs are against the wall. What now? The Lord has plans for us today and for today's Pharaoh, just as He did when Israel was hemmed in against the sea.
We have been given many promises, promises of escape. Just as Israel escaped the chariots of Pharaoh, so will those who are in Christ (and believe in the promises) escape. The anger, the rage, the veins popping out of the neck and red faces we see anytime the rapture or escape of any kind is mentioned today is proof positive that even the enemy believes in the promises our Father gave us. The enemy knows for a fact that our God does not lie. When the Almighty says something is going to happen, it will happen. Period.
I see a lot of escaping going on in the end times. Forget the rapture arguments, you can cause much more damage to the escape deniers by taking the promises one by one on their own merit. This multiplies the problems the deniers have in explaining it all away. Maybe Luke 21:36 is the rapture, maybe its not. The escape deniers like to argue that its not which is fine, now they have two problems instead of one. If Luke 21:36 is not the rapture then we have 2 places where believers escape instead of 1.
Luke 21:34And 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. 35For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch 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.
Yes, and this is a promise to escape ALL of whats about to happen. This writer finds a promise like that very attractive, especially in light of who made the promise (Almighty God.)
I see more end time escape here:
Rev 3:10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
I see two more end time escapes here:
Rev 12:5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 6And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
1. her child was caught up unto God-that's one
2. the woman fled into the wilderness where the Lord prepared a place for her-that's two
Yep, there's a lot of escaping going on here! Yes, its a very 'escapist' mentality that I proudly adopt as my own. If the Lord God told us to be watching and praying always for this escape, then yes we should have an escapist mentality. In the meantime, while we are praying for escape we are doing our Lord's will here on earth.
So yes, things are looking bad for this world at the moment. The governments in the west are flooding their own countries with Islam (and by default-terror). Little do they know they are pawns in the hand of Almighty God. They are creating the end time Babylon exactly as our Lord described it to us in the pages of His Word. So, do not be troubled. The same God who saw this coming thousands of years ago has prepared a way for us just as He did for Israel when they were backed up against the Red Sea. Glory to God.
Be listening for His voice, repent and pray. Be a man or woman who walks with God
Gen 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
And the Lord will take care of the rest....
grace and peace
