Prophetic acceleration of national decline and rise of a one world order
In 2002, when the Lord placed it on my heart to write "The Daily Jot", there were probably only one or two events on the national or world stage a month that could be considered "prophetic." Five years later it was perhaps one a week. And as I look at the headlines today, I am seeing that events with prophetic significance are occurring several times a day. We need to be vigilant. We need to have understanding. We need to have discernment. There is fast coming a time when the guidance of the Holy Spirit may not only mean the saving of our personal lives, but also be the God-given opportunity to lead another soul to eternal life. We have to be ready. We have to be awake.
Many of the verses in Daniel and Revelation are difficult to understand. Some are symbolic. Some are literal. Some have been fulfilled. Some have yet to be fulfilled. Of the things that we know, we must be ever alert that, as Jesus warned his disciples in Matthew 24:4, "Take heed that no man deceive you." In Acts 1:6, Jesus was asked when he would restore the kingdom to Israel. Jesus replied, "It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."
America long has been the nation that has stood in the gap for Israel and has been the block in the breech against the coming one world order. In recent years, America's leadership has become less and less a barrier to the rise of the antichrist and a one world government. Events under this current leadership have exponentially accelerated toward the prophetic end times. There are several events in the news today that have prophetic implications for America and the future of every American. For example, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says that the world should "speak with one voice" with regard to the unrest in Libya, yielding America's sovereignty to a one world order.
The president says he will no longer defend marriage between a man and a woman in the courts, opening the door for homosexuals to have marriage rights. The president and his political party also are directly supporting labor unrest in several states, pitting Americans against Americans, and undermining our legislative system. One Democratic Massachusetts Congressman said its time "to get out on the streets and get a little bloody." Oil prices have reached $119 on the world market, meaning prices for food and other essentials will inflate. Americans are prevented by their government to drill for oil domestically. We as citizens need to begin standing strong for our nation. Our leaders are incapable of it.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
