Meeting behind closed doors, the mega-rich of the world discuss the latest strategy on how to exploit technology that holds the tantalizing promise of extending human life far beyond threescore and ten.
They are also concerned about how to lock-up the natural resources of earth before the unwashed masses wastes them in feeding useless eaters (you and me). "Oil is peaking and global warming is going to cook us all." They believe known assets are finite and at present rates will be depleted and unavailable in a few dozen years, thus 90% of people must be eliminated to preserve the earth's riches for the rich.
Most of the super rich have sold their souls to Lucifer having bought into the lie that the Almighty can be defeated and that His handbook for living we call the Bible can be discarded. After all, His rules of morality infringe on their sexual freedom to practice whatever perversion suits them at the moment. They are also looking forward to extending their own lifetimes as far as they want them and to enjoy unfettered use of planet earth, claiming it for their own. Their consciences have been burned to charcoal and they lose no sleep over the planned coming slaughter of millions.
These folks are those who are called the "New World Order." They want to do away with national sovereignty and after the coming holocaust, force what is left of the human race into world dictatorship. They want the survivors as meek and compliant slaves for their personal use.
God however has other plans. He told Peter He was not willing that any should perish (2 Pet 3:9) so we know He will make every effort to give men as much time and opportunity possible to repent of sin and accept Him, even the New World Order crowd if that's possible. The Grand Plan of God cannot be delayed nor derailed. Men can plot and scheme but all will be in vain.
Before Jeremiah was born, God said He knew him before he formed him in the belly. He knew him, ordained him and empowered him to accomplish that which the Almighty desired. When Jeremiah complained that he hadn't the ability to speak, God rebuked him and said in effect, "Whosoever I send I will go with him and give him the power to speak in My Name (Jer 1:7-9)."
When Moses was tasked by God to challenge Pharaoh, he too shirked from the job and said he couldn't do it. The Almighty said he would go with him also to see to it that IT WOULD BE DONE (Ex 33:12-17).
The same goes for you and me. For whatever job you are called, you will be empowered from on high and given the strength and ability to accomplish that which is assigned. Are you called to stand in the street and call out senators, governors and presidents and rebuke them publically? If you are God-called, you will have the courage and the power to do just that and NOTHING WILL HARM YOU unless God wills it.
Have you ever wondered why some sermons are Spirit-filled and some dry as Arizona dust? It's because when a God-called, God-empowered preacher stands and delivers a message ordained by the Creator, nothing can stand in the way of its fulfillment. It doesn't matter whether the preacher has attended Seminary or is a self-taught student who has spent most of his life in sin. Whoever God calls, He also gives him the ability to perform the task set before him.
Unfortunately, too many preachers are self-called and are in the pulpit in their own power and are delivering messages they consider important and helpful to their own ministry. Material wealth or "success" is not a consideration of a true CALLED preacher, they don't know what 501-3-C means.
The Bible gives us the reason Abram was called to leave his home and journey to the Promised Land where he became Abraham and the father of a multitude of nations (Gen 17:4). It was because God knew He could trust him to do what He wanted no matter what, to rear his children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord and to not turn back.
"Gen 18:19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him."
If we forget our heritage and our calling we need to remember Esther. Mordecai called upon Esther to go into the King to plead for the Jews, risking her life and instructed her, "…and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"
He also informed her "For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place (Est 4:14)."
God's Will shall be done. "Esther, if you fail to step up to the plate, though it may cost you your present life, God will just use somebody else and the job will be completed, on time and within budget."
The same principle applies for you and me. If we are called for a specific task (and we all are) and fail to do whatever is necessary to accomplish it, we will have failed that part of our personal test, but the work will be accomplished in some other manner by someone else. There will be no unfinished business, it will all be done.
"What is my job," you ask? Maybe your job is to lay in a store of food to feed the hungry who will come to your door in the coming great tribulation. Maybe your job is to die with a rifle in your hands. Perhaps it is to run a business and help finance the work of God through ministry support. Maybe you are supposed to be the Mayor. Perhaps your job is to help that little old lady next door do her grocery shopping. Prayer warriors are always in demand. Nothing is too large or too small to be important in the overall scheme of the Divine Design.
We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness in high places. The shakers and movers of this present world are merely transitory figures trying to upset the overall plan of God. When it's all over the NWO crowd will be burning in the Lake of Fire and God's people will be inheriting the earth.
"A Psalm of David. Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. (Ps 37:1-2)"
Meanwhile, the world rolls over and turns its eyes away as more Christians are beheaded by Isis and the U.S. Government "accidently" leaves more ammo and weapons behind for the Islamic terrorists to pick up and use against "infidels." Islam is the religion of Satan and those who would use it for their plans to dominate the world, are smeared with the blood of the innocent.
Will there be war in America? It seems inevitable given treason in the White House and in Congress. We have been sold into slavery, they just haven't yet put all the padlocks on the gates. Soon the shooting will begin, either with martial law, or Civil War, and it may start with a real or fake nuclear attack on a U.S. city, the mother of all "false flags."
Will the rapture save us and whisk us away to heaven just before our witness is most needed here on earth? Probably not. Biblical theories change about as often as human governments. Theologians come and go but God's Word stands forever.
My personal questioning of the pre-trib theory came when studying Mt 24 and thinking, "That's going to be a very bad time." I questioned my preacher and he told me the "elect" are the Jews, and we had nothing to worry about. Later I found many other contradictions of the theory but will save those for a future article.
Revelation 13:7 (Dan 7:21; Rev 11:7,18; 12:17; 17:15) tells us Antichrist will be given power to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. The word "elect" is used 20 times in the Bible. Four mentions are for the Jews and all those are found in Isaiah. Fifteen mentions are talking about Christians and one mention is for Jesus Himself.
If the church is gone, then Antichrist cannot war against it. Besides, why would God rapture us away just when our witness is most sorely needed?
