By all appearances, it really does appear that everything is going to hell in a handbasket. Riots, economic doom and ruin and military set backs scream at us from the headlines and blogs. I have never witnessed such times in my sixty plus years.
This truly is similar to when WWII was building up a head of steam in the late thirties. And I imagine it will only get worse. Many people thought Hitler was the antichrist and probably some think Obama is. Whatever you may think, these events are God's way of reminding us that there is no safety or security outside of Him.
History is replete with examples of stormy passages with fleeting periods of calm in between. This is no different as we enter the end times. We see the signs of growing moral turpitude and the indifference of so called churches to sin, particularly homesexuality. Even the growing numbers of vegans is nothing but a signal that time for mankind is growing short.
II Timothy 3:1-5,7 "But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of god; holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."Sometimes I am troubled by the turmoil that grows stronger every day and enraged by the incompetence and venality of our government. But yet, I am comforted by the realization that all of this has been foretold and there is nothing that can defeat the will and intent of God.
I Timothy 4:1-3 "But the spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall 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, men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth."
Christ, not the US government, is my Savior. Obama, Soros and the all the forces of Hell cannot triumph.
