The time is nearing upon us?
An alarm is ringing. Trouble, hatred, violence is spreading on earth. “Time is short.” We all should feel a sense of urgency and know that this sinful fallen world is coming to its own conclusion. Man and his technology for all that it has helped is running amuck. The politics of those in government that control the nations are in mayhem. And the birth pains we now see show us entering into a new phase of activity. But again this is only phases to bring us to where it becomes a trap on the whole world.
“But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape . (1 Thess. 5:1-3)
As it is called the end times – the final culmination of years before the Second Coming of Christ approach, the Bible warns of a time when society will proclaim “peace and safety!” The long-held desire of global peace will seemingly be achieved by mankind. A new humanistic era will unfold. But this will be a false peace, a worldly peace that will be temporary. And it is at this time that God’s wrath will then be unleashed incrementally upon a rebellious world toward him. Instead they will be unified in spirit and the goals of the antichrist. Before this one man – the Antichrist reveals himself as the most benevolent conscientious human being, to look like Christ.
He will be introduced as politician, a humanitarian at first before he is satanically-empowered, a false messiah who will rule the governments of the Earth for 3 1/2 years before the Second Coming of Christ (Rv.13). During this time, the world will be living under a New World Order . The Antichrist who is the false messiah will then become the head of a global government ruling over 10 quadrants in the world of other nations. We know that technology will be used under this man who becomes president of the world (elected or not?). He will establish a new social order and will issue an emblem to be put on people (the Bible calls it a mark) to control the finances of the world, so you can earn and eat. He will eventually control the economy of the world through a one world currency the Bible calls the Mark of the Beast, a new social order system.
This will be a high tech merging with socialism/communism. This political figure will at a certain point become a religious leader as he declares himself to the world to be God (Mt.24:15; 2 Thess. 2). He will be the god of a synthesized one world religion, something he has always been behind the scene. And with his political successes they will believe him and submit in loyalty to him and his ways. This is the Bibles explanation of where we are headed.
The book of Revelation details this end times false religion sweeping the earth under this new system of government created.
The devil and men show you other ways but Jesus alone is the way, there are not other ways.
We are not there yet, but we are facing this coming very quickly and decision time is near upon those who have been sitting on the fence. Once this begins to be implemented it will be like dominos going down and any decision will become more difficult.
Quoting Isa.49 Paul admonishes 2 Cor. 6:1-2:
“We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says: "In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you."Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”
