For those of us who are so "into" the elections, we missed what UNESCO voted in, denying Israel access to the Temple Mount and most of the Wailing Wall. Russia was one of those, along with all Arab countries, so it passed. The United States, Germany and Britain, to name a few, voted against it but were out-voted. Military force will now be used to enforce the passed proposition. Who is the next president will either give Israel more time, or will become one of those that in Zechariah 12:3...And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. Hillary will align with UNESCO. I don't believe Trump will, but who knows?
I do know that whomever acquires the most powerful office in the world, will be placed there by God. He alone controls the steps of man, giving them the freedom of choice, yet already knowing the choice man will make. Man has, since the beginning of time, treated God's gift to us to choose freely as if it were a permit to be the sons of Satan. Most of humanity turned its back on God, and I am as guilty as they (though I have realized with the wisdom of age how foolish, and self-centered I was). Our repayment for The Freedom has been to spit in God's face and crucify His Son. Which one of us would stand by and be treated in such a fashion without retaliating with the wrath of vengeance?
Through he ages, God was able to walk in the cool of the evening with Adam, create Eve, watch as disobedience drove them out of the Garden He had made for them. Watch as the first murder is committed. Then the world He created and the very Creation He was proud of, turn against Him. They created their own gods, ignoring the true God of all. He used different events to try to turn men back to Him. Nothing, I mean nothing, made man's heart break and turn back to Him, but for those of us who know the Scriptures, know the Prophecies, are filled with the very Holy Ghost that Christ spoke of us as the 'Comforter', now look to the Eastern sky in earnest. Israel is in distress, yet no one seems too excited or excited at all about the events that are turning the whole world against His Beloved.
Isaiah 2:1 - 11...6Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.
7Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:
8Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:
9And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.
10Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.
11The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
You would have to be hiding under a rock not to see the info-mmercials about nations continuing to print money (the U.S. being one of the worst at doing so) beyond what precious metals they have to back its value. At the rate the world's economy is crashing, it won't be long before we cast wads of cash at the bats and owls. Now comes the choice that God has given us and believe in His word...or become one of those who would crucify His Son again. The Mark of the Beast!
The Beast Out of the Sea:
1And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 3And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 6And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9If any man have an ear, let him hear. 10He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
The Beast Out of the Earth:
11And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 15And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
The Mark of the Beast:
16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
In some areas of the world, we have already started seeing Christians persecuted, beheaded and any other evil men and Satan can conceive, and the rest of the world barely takes notice. All they worry about is the evil desires they can conceive and destroy human lives in the process. Political correctness, sinful sexual deviance, the rights of the many trodden by the wickedness of the few. The time is almost on us when we will have to choose: The Mark of the Beast so that we can purchase even the basics, or fall back to God, believing on His word and promises. I know this is a long Blog, but I started peeking around the fog of the election, and started seeing the reality the fog was hiding and remembering the teachings and knowledge I have concerning God, Christ, and the Prophecies and allowing everything to fall in place in my vision as it should be doing. What I saw is terrifying and yet...relieving in the knowledge that to look to the Eastern Sky.
I'll finish with Revelation 22:20 - 21...20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
