24:2 And Jesus said unto them, see all of you not all these things? verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the world? 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, take heed that no man deceive you. 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 24:6 And all of you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that all of you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:2-8 KJV)
Wars and rumors of wars can be found in more than one place in the Bible. I am not talking about ancient war be today’s rumors of war. As stated in the Bible, the nation that want to start a war is north of Israel. What nation is due north of Israel? Russia, of course. As I wrote in a recent blog, read the Bible. Do not just read the Bible but read it for understanding. Each word actually means something and if you do not understand, ask.
Everything that is happening now was foretold, many times, a very long time ago. By not knowing the date nor time of the return of Christ means the longer you wait to repent and pray may be too late to save your soul. Some have already given their soul to Satan and is forever lost. They are living a lie and refuse to grasp the truth for what it is. They have an unsatisfiable want for everything but the right thing. They also think they can wait until the last minute before falling on their knees and asking for forgiveness.
17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit (o. pneuma) into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet-colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. (Revelation 17:3-6 KJV)
Revelation is filled with metaphors, but a person can take their time and decipher the metaphors. One hint, both China and Russia have been talking to each other and their flag is ‘red’. There are others but they are for another blog.
We are blessed to have a sane President trying to calm the impending war. I pray he can do it. Either way, the world will have a rocky ride until these things abate. I do not foresee a normality anytime soon though. All I can say is repent, pray, and really read the Bible.
UPDATE: Last week there was a Christian Revival at a school in Kentucky. Some students protested and formed a school walkout. Remember my blog on denial. Deny God, no matter where He is, and suffer the consequences.
