Our choices and the current prophetic times
The one world order is advancing at a faster pace than at any time. One example is the global approach to solving economic problems--problems that appear to have been created to give globalists the opportunity to band governments together. Another example is how religions are melding together with world leaders, even ones who believe they are Christians, saying there is more than one path to heaven. Militaries are working together to solve disaster issues; the move in sovereign nations to open borders and trade; and the way international law and Sharia law are influencing legal processes in many countries, including America. Worldwide Christians are persecuted. And its starting now in the US.
Revelation 13:7-8 says of the antichrist, "And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And 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." We know that out of the foundation that is being laid right now at a very fast pace, the stage for an antichrist is being prepared. Until then, there may be many types and shadows. John 7 says, "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist."
The march of prophecy cannot be stopped, but our place in prophecy can be determined by the decisions we make. Revelation 14:9-11 says, "...If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation: and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name."
Our lives are full of choices. There are consequences to them--either good or bad. But Jesus told us several times to not be deceived. And he was particularly speaking about those in the position of religious authority. John reaffirms this, as does Paul and Peter. These are days where you must test each matter before you against the truth of the Word of God. Each leader, each pastor, each prophet, each teacher--their words should be compared with their actions, and their words and actions measured by the Holy Scriptures. And in order to do this, you must know the Scriptures--not from a book written about them by men or women, but by first hand reading and studying. Choices can be forever. Make them wisely.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
