While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 (NASB)
Are you as disgusted with politics as I am right now? When we were able to elect a Republican Congress last year I thought finally the insanity would stop; that they would be able to keep the rampant lawlessness to cease. But it hasn’t happened. Men you thought you could trust to hold the line against the overreach of the executive and judicial branches have caved with barely a whimper. It’s nuts! An Iran nuclear deal threatens to annihilate Israel as well as the United States (whom they refer to as the Great Satan) and we get exactly what out of the deal? Nothing! Not even the release of American hostages! And the savage butchery of Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills marches on at the taxpayers’ expense. What is going on???
Please correct me if I’m wrong, but to me, the answer is pretty simple. We are in the last days the Bible is so descriptive about. We’re living out all those prophecies from both the Old and New Testaments. People won’t stand for sound doctrine but prefer to have their “ears tickled.” (2 Timothy 4:3) They are “falling away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits, and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron…” (1 Timothy 4:1-2) What else can you call it when little girls are forced to share a bathroom with an anatomically male transgender. Is that not a deceitful spirit when people don’t know whether they’re male or female anymore, and the rest of the world is forced to go along with their gender confusion? Do we even realize the possibilities of rape and murder that can occur from this insane ruling? Our world is messed up! And it’s getting crazier every day! Honestly, I believe the Antichrist is already on the scene working his deceitful will on the land.
So what can we do about it? Will electing a Republican president help? To be honest, I don’t even think we’re going to make it to the next election. And if we do somehow manage it, I’m not so sure it will help that much. But I’m so hoping “we’re outta here” before then. I can’t wait for that “thief in the night” to come when Jesus will descend from heaven with a shout, and with the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16) I just fear so much for those who are left behind to face the atrocities that will occur over those next seven years. We’ve got to be spreading the Word now to save as many as possible from the coming destruction.
And also, in the meantime, we must pray! We are in a war! It’s a war that can only be won on our knees. Literally. The truth is under nuclear attack! We must first pray, and then stand up for the truth! Even when it’s not politically correct! Even when it could land us in jail! Or worse! The Bible is clear. “Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28)
