Are you being taken for a ride?
Being chauffeured is not the same as being taken for a ride.
The prophecy extremists are hard at work, they want you to think we are either in the tribulation, that the rider on the white horse is now taking place or the mark of the beast has begun or is about to begin.
None of these are taking place.
The mark is a number of a man, he is the world president (a dictator) and he is the one that issues the mark, in the middle of the tribulation (Rev.13). The mark of the Beast, the number is a numerical value of this man’s name. The number is the same for everyone, so what is taking place by chips or codes is not it. We do not have an established new world order which must come first (and takes time to develop), nor do we have the person that is the Son of Perdition, the Antichrist in power. So there is no way for this to be taking place now. For the Tribulation to begin Jesus must unseal the 7 seals and the riders commence one after another. It will be quite noticeable.
The many theories on the New world order, the mark of the Beast are all being used that only further and deepen deception, which comes in various packages, of whom the church is the main target.
So those who speak on this are running ahead without any biblical verification. It is hype, it is bad Bible interpretation with even worse application. They need to chill, and think deeper on these matters and so do the hearers so that they are not led away from what is actually written.
So many are speaking on things as if they are facts of what has or will take place. Many statements are not based on truth but speculation that can go into a dozen different directions. Finding a conspiracy theory to fit a narrative are a dime a dozen these days but the people who are not seeing if the events are based on the Bibles explanation seem to all be attracted to the prophetic wanna be’s that figured it out for everyone else.
We should not be dismissive but we also need to stop paying attention to capricious theories, notions, speculation’s and rightly divide the word so we do not wrongly apply it and eviscerate its intent and meaning.
I write this as an admonishment as I see what people are now saying over the net, some who never went down the rabbit trails before are doing so now.
Are we closer than before, yes, does all that we are hearing fit Bible prophecy, no! A reminder to all, Bible prophecy has to be fulfilled completely, and exactly to the letter or it is not Bible prophecy fulfilled. This is so important to understand. It may have similarities, it may be part of a pattern but this may not be that which is actually written. In other words, this is not that.
The new world order has been spoken of by prophecy teachers for many years, some have a shameful record of what they have said is taking place. if one does a little research going back several years or dozens they would be shocked at what they said was taking place. For example the mark was UPC, or bar code. It was pointed out on the bar codes you may see an F or H printed sideways, which some assumed to be for the forehead and hand. Some churches claim the mark is the day one worships on (the forbidden Sunday).
Certain technologies may be forerunners of the mark of the beast but lets not run ahead of the Bible. This type of prophetic error is clearly seen through the blood moons application that has been wrongly interpreted and applied (see www.letusreason.org/proph37.htm)
One does not have to make up prophecies, have new unbiblical revelation to be a false prophet, they can misapply the prophetic word and say this is now fulfilled and be wrong as well.
Acts 2:20 has everything to do with the tribulation period where several blackouts of the sun occur. There are just a few places where Scripture it tells us the moon will be red, like blood, more often it turns dark, it will “not give its light” (Matthew:24:29)
Some claimed the fifth trumpet began in 1991 when Saddam Hussein (Saddam's name means "the destroyer") set Kuwaiti oil fields on fire. Some said he was the antichrist.
All of these prophetic postulations are not new. In 1963 William Branham preached a set of sermons declaring the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. Revelation 4, 5, and 10:1-7 were fulfilled; the seven seals of Revelation were opened; and the times of the Gentiles ended. Many believed it.
There has been a continual stream of assumptions treated as Scripture which should be embarrassing to those who spoke that claim to believe the Scripture. And with all these assumptions come dates of what will take place.
THE NEW WORLD ODER IS HERE
The new world order has been a hobby horse in development by the elites for over 75 years. In 1950, James Paul Warburg appeared before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. He said this to the Committee that day:
"We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent ." (James Paul Warburg February 17, 1950, during appearance before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.)
There are many who subscribe to world government that are people of influence and power and those who are paid by them. News reporter Walter Cronkite who was the face of trusted journalism in news at one time (CBS 60-70's), received the world governance award who moderator said to Cronkite “ world government is the structure necessary for global justice” you sir have been a lifelong advocate of this principle and it is appropriate therefore we present you with this amicus guild.” Cronkite spoke about a system to establish peace and justice for all the people of the world… telling "America she will have to yield up some of her sovereignty,… it will take a lot of courage, a lot of faith, a lot of persuasion for them to come along with us on this necessity. … we need a democratic world government.” They then broadcasted Hillary Clinton’s congratulations. Who made it sound so beneficial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4bqOgqDNuk
So we know we are headed in this direction, it’s been going on for a long time in many places by many people. This utopia by unbelievers who are humanists is their only answer.
Henri Spaak the former Belgian Prime Minister (1972) early planner of the European Common Market; Secretary of NATO, who was one of the founding fathers of the European Union spoke relating their hopeful leader to the Scripture:
"We do not want another committee, we have too many already. What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all people, and to lift us out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us such a man, and be he god or devil, we will receive him."
1 Jn. 2:18 “ Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, EVEN NOW THERE ARE MANY ANTICHRISTS; whereby we know that it is the last time.”
Antichrists, are many who deny the true Messiah throughout history and today and some act as if they are a messiah.
For those of us into Bible prophecy who watch the signs we need to recalibrate and prioritize what the scripture says over what we may hear from the men that are distorting what is taking place.
Planets aligning, comets arriving, pandemics arising and too many overreact.
We are to be watching for the events mentioned in Mt.24, and Luke 21 coalesce. The pestilences, earthquakes, tsunamis, famines and the signs in the sky are the sorrows that must come first. Which does make one consider how really bad the Tribulation will be when it arrives.
These will all eventually converge, taking place at the same time, then we will know the time is close, that the Tribulation is near and the taking of the bride is even nearer. Let’s all be careful not to speak of something being fulfilled, stating this is that in prophecy. Let’s stay on course and keep our heads in the Scripture and our hearts longing as we look forward to that day.
