This brings us to another point that is important. Regardless of what is going on in the world, or how bad it seems-the Lord is in control. We stood on the brink of the implementation of the new world order had Clinton won the election, but she didn't. It took a miracle to thwart all the vote rigging and other corruption the globalists had lined up to put the final nail in America's coffin but a miracle prevented that outcome. Just in the nick of time, they were thwarted. Same thing with Brexit, the only reason the politicians in Britain decided to have the referendum is they never believed in a million years the people would vote to leave the EU, well...they did. Another miracle and another hammer blow to the globalists.
Whats the point? The unexpected, the miraculous can and will happen as often as needed. Even when it looks like we have passed the point of no return, it is the Lord who determines the timing of things. His will be done, not mans or the enemy's. We know how this story ends. Even in the midst of the enemy's 'brightest' season (the tribulation) where he has incredible power granted to him (even over the saints), what else is happening?
During the reign of the anti-Christ and the globalist new world order system they set up to achieve their satanic utopia on earth, they are going to have some rather unpleasant circumstances to deal with. Consider how much fun and pleasure this Christ rejecting world has to look forward to during their short lived season:
1. Mass death (1/4 of the earth wiped out), then another 1/3
Rev 6:7When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
Rev 9:18 A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths.
2. Peace is taken from the earth (people have it in their heart to kill each other). Makes it kind of hard to enjoy yourself when you are constantly looking over your shoulder for your neighbor who wants to kill you:
3When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword.
3. famine- does make living in 'utopia' rather difficult:
5When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. 6Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds a of wheat for a day’s wages, b and six pounds c of barley for a day’s wages, d and do not damage the oil and the wine!”
4. Fear-when a person realizes that they are at war with an angry God to the point where they are hiding in the rocks and actually confessing "uhhh, I think we upset the Almighty." That makes enjoying all the 'benefits' of the satanic world order a bit difficult:
12I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
15Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. 16They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us f from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17For the great day of their g wrath has come, and who can withstand it?”
5. The scenery: so much for a nice quiet cup of coffee in the morning gazing at all the magnificent beauty the Lord created on this earth. No, what our communist, globalist, satanist, Christ rejecting friends will get to enjoy out of their front window (if they still have one) is this:
7The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.
It will look like hell (literally) on the face of the earth.
When these same people get the bright idea to escape the scorched earth that has become their front yard and they tell themselves "hey, lets brighten up our day and head to the beach!" They will have this little surprise waiting for them:
8The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, 9a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
That day at the beach will seriously lose its luster with the sight of blood for water, rotting fish and shipwrecks littering the shore.
And just when they think it cant get any worse, they try and relive themselves with a cool drink of water only to find out it has been poisoned and they fall on their faces dead:
10The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— 11the name of the star is Wormwood. a A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.
And for those who survive all this ^^? The party is just getting started:
13As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair call out in a loud voice: “Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!”
And all of this is just Revelation 6-8, they have 14 more chapters in the book of Revelation to look forward to!
Why write this^^? For those who think the Lord is sitting in heaven unaware and indifferent to the rotten corruption, wickedness and perversion that is being manifest in increasing measure on this earth, they are dead wrong. The Lord is patient and merciful, until He is not...…
Rom 2:5 But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God's wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed.
The Lord is in control today (as Trump in office as President proves). The Lord will be in control tomorrow. So regardless of how bad it looks and how out of control the wicked appear to be, there is coming a time to settle accounts.
Another important point we need to make is there is always an acceleration right before the end of any cycle:
Notice here ^^ how when the descent of the wave becomes the steepest, it is nearing the point of turning the cycle to head in the other direction. So it is with this world. Just when it looks like the wicked are accelerating past the point of no return, they hit a wall and get their face ripped off heading in the other direction.
We don't have to guess what is going to happen. The Almighty detailed the road map ahead for us (and this world) in His Word. The wicked appear to win many battles but they lose the war. Don't lose heart. Be faithful, be courageous. Use every ounce of strength the Lord gives you to fight the good fight for one more day and let the Lord handle the rest. He truly is in full control. Glory to God.
grace and peace
