During the Vietnam War in the sixties, there was a popular saying, “Suppose they gave a war and nobody came?”
Today the saying would be most appropriate if it said, “Suppose they gave a lot of different wars at the same time and everybody came?”
You could choose the kind of war you want to wage and you could even choose more than one war at the same time. To name just a few choices, you could pick your weapons from among traditional guns and soldiers, biological, chemical, neurological, agricultural, media, nuclear, unmanned swarming vehicles, digital, pestilence, pandemics, weather, oil and gas, population reduction, immigration and emigration, debt payment default, propaganda, artificial intelligence, technological, economic… Oh wait, for sure you get at least the propaganda, the media and the economic wars at no extra charge regardless of which other types of war you pick.
And you know what’s really interesting? All of those weapons and types of warfare are predicted in the Bible for the End Times’ generation. And you know what else? You are that generation.
As expected, Russia invaded the Ukraine a couple weeks ago. China wraps up the Paralympics in Beijing on Sunday, March 13. It will be very interesting to see which way China jumps regarding Taiwan after seeing the consequences of the sanctions imposed on Russia. Will China decide to sit tight for a while because of the potential sanctions? Or will China decide, “Well, they (the nations) can’t fight a two front war without serious damage to their own countries so I’m going to go for it now. Bye-bye Taiwan!” Look how fast China took down Hong Kong’s bid for democracy using the very handy Wuhan virus as the weapon of choice.
In The Book of Revelation, chapter 5, we see a seven-sealed scroll in the hands of God the Father. The author, John the Apostle, weeps copiously because no one is found who’s worthy to open the scroll. Scholars believe this scroll is either the deed to planet Earth which was lost by Adam and Eve and given over to Satan in the Garden of Eden, or they think the scroll is a list God’s judgements on sinful man. Both things are probably true. Ultimately, Jesus is declared worthy to open the scroll and to execute His Father’s wrath.
The first four seals are unfolding before our very eyes. The first seal Jesus opens says that the world will be conquered without the use of a military weapon. Think prices are high now? Just watch what’s going to happen when the price of food and energy go through the roof. No guns needed when you have inflation, or a recession, or a depression, hunger will do the job. The “deep state” which is run behind the scenes by the VERY, VERY wealthiest people of the world is succeeding in its goal of globalization after two plus centuries of careful planning and execution. The second seal is actual warfare, “to take peace from the earth” by making people slay each other. Happening right now and accelerating rapidly.
When the third seal is opened worldwide famine emerges impacting everyone except for the very rich that, on the contrary, are enjoying luxury food items. In the past two years article after article spoke of how the top 1% of the world’s wealthy used the pandemic’s opportunity to add to their personal wealth while simultaneously building and stock piling supplies in “safe houses.” Also during the Wuhan virus pandemic, the top 10 of the world’s richest people have doubled their income. The opening of the fourth seal summons disease and death with Hell following close behind. One fourth of the earth’s population is killed by war, pestilence, famine and by wild animals. Wild animals will be very hungry too, and they will attack man in the battle for food. That’s just the beginning; many, many more people will die in the years to come, during the Tribulation.
You, personally, do not have to pick a war, any kind of war, in order to be caught up in the fighting, disease and famine that come with it. The best war to pick is the one Jesus wins. My favorite bumper sticker stated, “I read the end of the Book and our side wins.” Yay, God!
