THE LAST DAYS
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourneth for His only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for His firstborn” Zechariah 12:9-10.
The above Scripture is a prophecy of what will happen in the near future. Israel is still God’s chosen people. The Church Age is almost over, and we already see God working and turning to Israel. Although it is true that Israel will be gathered from among the nations in a greater measure after the revelation of Jesus Christ, as He comes at the end of the seven years of tribulation, no one can deny that God has done a marvelous work in drawing many of Israel out of the nations in which they were scattered for so many years, and has brought them into their land and established them as a nation. The majority of Israel is secular, and has no belief in God. However recent reports tell of many accepting Jesus as Savior in Israel.
Very soon the seven years of unparalleled judgment of the earth will begin, and Israel will be dealt with in a very severe manner, which God will allow to bring them to repentance and acceptance of Jesus Christ as their Messiah. John says in Revelation 1:7, “Behold He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him; and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so. Amen.”
He will establish His kingdom on the earth, with Israel (those who believe at the end of the tribulation), and 144,000 of Israel (Rev 7.:4-8,14:1-5), and the remnant of Israel, who have been protected by God through the tribulation (Rev. 12:13-17). All of these will rule with Christ on the earth over the nations during the millennial reign We of the Church will already be in heaven with the Lord as His heavenly people. This is what we long for, and are waiting for at this present time.
POPE FRANCIS CALLS FOR A NEW GLOBAL AUTHORITY TO SAVE HUMANITY – Pope Francis says, “Global warming is a fact and a new global political authority is necessary in order to save humanity from utter disaster.” He envisions that this global authority would be in charge of “the reduction of pollution and the development of poor countries and regions.”
The Pope will be traveling to the United States and will address Congress on September 24, 2015 and then will be at the U.N. to make an address to kick off the Sustainable Development Summit for the Entire Planet which will be held on September 25, 2015. This summit will be hosting some of the biggest names on the planet, including Pope Francis. According to this article by Michael Snyder and News Report on the internet, the “Sustainable Agenda will specifically address topics such as economics, agriculture, education and gender equality.” The UN plans that these edicts will be “to manage the whole globe.” It remains to be seen if all the nations of the world will let this happen at this time, but this will take place sooner or later as the Scripture has predicted. There will one world government. It is coming to pass.
You can read more about this on the internet if you are interested. I believe that all Christians should be interested in this. This Agenda will take away all types of individual freedoms. What you can do with your own property will be affected by all the rules that will be brought forth. Having said that, I wish to impress upon all that this is the instrument of World Government and Socialism, and very well could be the rising of the Antichrist’s kingdom.
Pope Francis is not taking just a religious role, but a very political one. Many are looking to him for guidance. He is well loved. He may well be the False Prophet of Revelation 13:11-18. According to this text, Revelation 13:16, a system will be in place where the False Prophet will cause, “... both small and great, rich and poor free and bound to receive a mark in their right hand, or their forehead, And that no man can buy or sell, save he that has the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” He will point to the First Beast of Revelation 13:3-10, known as the Antichrist, and cause all to worship him. The scripture in Daniel 7:25, regarding the Antichrist says, “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws; and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and dividing of times [three and one-half years].” He will rule the world with a global government. We are seeing it beginning to come to pass.
This new Agenda will affect means to control “the economy, poverty, guns, end hunger, promote proper nutrition, (haven’t you noticed how much government control is coming in to how we eat), ensuring inclusive and equitable education, to achieve gender equality, manage water and sanitation, sustainable energy for all, promote sustainable economic growth, reduce inequality among countries, take urgent action to combat climate change,” and many other things. It is to affect the whole planet and cover just about every aspect of human existence. This truly is a template for radically expanded “global governance.” This meeting will take place September 25-27. What significance does it have that the last Blood moon of the tetrad is September 28th?
What do you see in these announcements? It looks like the bride of the Lord Jesus Christ will soon be caught away. II Peter 3:11 says, “Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness.”
STRANGE HAPPENINGS IN THE PACIFIC OCEAN. – Recently, the El Nino weather pattern has had an effect of creating a hurricane which went up the coast of California. The El Nino is farther south than usual, which weather authorities say will bring us a hotter summer this year. This warmth has caused a mass of warmer water to rise and move farther north. Hundreds of thousands of red crabs, not often seen in the area of California, have moved upward from the depths and have been marooned and are dying on the beaches from San Diego to Orange County, near L.A. People have been warned not to eat the crabs because they have eaten “toxic algae bloom,” which could affect humans. Also, Tuna and other fish have been moving north following the crabs, their food source.
Just recently, two very exotic deep sea fish, called Oar fish, were found on the beaches of California. Scientists don’t know why they have washed ashore, but they suspect that either they are washed toward the beaches by storms or come to surface when they’re injured or dying. These fish can grow to 50 feet long and are usually found in water of 656 foot depth to even 3,280 feet.
Japanese have noted that often they are found beached preceding an earthquake, but also they are washed ashore sometimes because of severe storms. What does this beaching suggest to mankind? The Scripture comes to mind in Romans 8:22 speaking of the desire for the coming of the Lord, “For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now.” Is creation groaning? Yes, it is. Very soon Jesus Christ will come again. After that incident Creation will not be delivered for another 7 years of the Tribulation which is rapidly approaching us.
Weary Christians, look up and lift up your heads, our deliverance draw nigh, and is even at the door. Our trials and tests are strong, but He is stronger. He is our Victor! We triumph through His strength! Remember, the trial you are facing today may be the last thing you must endure before you see Jesus Christ, face to face.
