Prophecy Update: Luke 21:9 Prophecy 1/31/24
Last week I wrote on the run up to World War Three. Jesus told us that the last days would be marked by wars and disturbances in Luke 21:9. It is an interesting word, “disturbances,” because that could include a lot of things. The Greek word, Ἀκαταστασία means instability, a state of disorder, disturbance, confusion, and generally is used when there is a problem that seems unsolvable. This is the case in our nation because we are a dying culture. Our culture is dying because we have abandoned the Judeo-Christian worldview. Think about these topics, social, cultural, moral, and political, and look and see that they are all in a state of decay. There is a crisis of lawlessness in our major cities. There is a loss of economic discipline. The cultural and spiritual foundations of America are outright fought against or minimized to be ineffectual in our colleges and universities. I love history and I can see that there is an analogy between the ancient culture of Rome and our culture that is uncanny. What led to their downfall is happening to us! The decadence of American society starts with the preoccupation with self, desire for luxury and riches, and leads to skepticism, weariness, and an outright hatred of biblical spiritual truth. The Bible calls this being in the flesh!
The word disturbances (akatastasia) is used in James and says this:
“For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing.” James 3:16
The New American Standard Bible translates the word as disorder. Our nation has a problem with jealousy and selfish ambition. Look at the men who become presidents and their net worth when they enter service as president and when they leave. How does a man worth 200,000 before he becomes president leave as a multi-millionaire several times over. The Obama’s are worth 30 times more than when they entered the White House (1.3 billion to 70 billion). B. Clinton – Before: $1.3 million – After: $241.5 million. George W. Bush – Before: $20 million – After: $40 million. D. Trump – Before: $3 billion – After: $2.3 billion. Trump is the only one to lose money as President according to my research. It is a truth worth noting from the Bible and from history, when a civilization erodes its traditional religious beliefs, that nation dies. Case in point from 1980, the Supreme Court threw the Ten Commandments out of Kentucky schools:
“Stone v. Graham, case in which the U.S. Supreme Court on November 17, 1980, ruled (5–4) that a Kentucky statute requiring school officials to post a copy of the Ten Commandments (purchased with private contributions) on a wall in every public classroom violated the First Amendment’s establishment clause, which is commonly interpreted as a separation of church and state. The Commandments were not part of the curriculum, and the court maintained that the state was instead encouraging students “to read, meditate upon, and perhaps venerate and obey” the Commandments, which is a violation of the establishment clause. The court considered it to be irrelevant that the copies were bought with private funds, because displaying the Commandments demonstrated official state support of their message.” https://www.britannica.com/
God forbid that a child should actually obey the Ten Commandments. It was clearly demonstrated by the courts explanation that they did not want anyone obeying the Ten Commandments because it would break the constitution’s establishment clause. This represents a clear demonstration of our nation turning against God, the creator of our rights! Our justices could not tolerate a child living with fidelity, self-restraint, respect for parents, honesty, or faith in God! The historian Will Durant said, “Will and Ariel Durant put the issue squarely as they reflected on what they called “the lessons of history.” “There is no significant example in history,” they said, “of [any] society successfully maintaining moral life without the aid of religion.” https://magazine.byu.edu/
World War Three started many years ago when the USA abandoned her faith in God and the special place the scriptures have in our society. Much like World War One and Two, the wars were lost many years before. For instance, Germany abandoned true faith before WW1 and lost that faith completely, giving themselves to Naziism before WW2. The same thing happened to Russia, and we were gifted by God with a man who stood the test of James 1, he rejoiced to go through the trial with faith and determination and stands as a role model for what we are facing in America. His name is Alexander Solzhenitsyn, and he spoke on this subject in 1983:
“Men Have Forgotten God’: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s 1983 Templeton Address: I am very much aware that Eastern Slavic Orthodoxy, which, during the 65 years of Communist rule, has been subjected to persecution even fiercer and more extensive than that of early Christian times, has had—and still has today—many hands worthier than mine to accept it. In this persecution-filled age, it is appropriate that my own very first memory should be of Chekists in pointed caps entering St. Panteleimon’s Church in Kislovodsk, interrupting the service, and crashing their way into the sanctuary in order to loot. The League of Militant Atheists attacked us — schoolchildren egged on by Komsomol members taunted me for accompanying my mother to the last remaining church in town and tore the cross from around my neck. The statement of the Templeton Foundation shows an understanding of how the Orthodox spiritual tradition has maintained its vitality in our land despite the forcible promotion of atheism. If even a fraction of those words should find their way to my motherland past the jamming devices, this will bolster the spirits of our believers, assuring them that they have not been forgotten, and that their steadfastness inspires courage even here.” https://www.nationalreview.com/
We need to remember to encourage one another to read the Bible, pray for one another, and encourage one another when the state says that our faith is evil. This is the nature of the message coming out of Washington elites and news organizations working to block Christian content and truth. Solzhenitsyn went on to say:
“The centralized atheism before whose armed might the whole world trembles still hates and fears this unarmed faith as much today as it did 60 years ago. Yes! All the savage persecutions loosed upon our people by a murderous state atheism, coupled with the corroding effect of its lies, and an avalanche of stultifying propaganda — all of these together have proven weaker than the thousand-year-old faith of our nation. This faith has not been destroyed; it remains the most sublime, the most cherished gift to which our lives and consciousness can attain. More than half a century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of older people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.”
Why are we facing a second civil war in Texas? Because men have forgotten God. Why do woke haters cancel Christians and the Christian message? Because men have forgotten God! I could go on and on through a whole litany of subjects. Our nation does not have at its core, a people in government, media, education, or business who have kept the nation in the good graces of our God. Why? The Supreme Court has enabled every immoral, wicked, and evil behavior to thrive in our culture! Sealed in law, propagated by Hollywood, advanced by media giants, taught in our universities, is the evil message that we are beyond a need for the Christian faith in the USA. Remember as a Christian, one word of truth outweighs all of the lies of Washington. One big lie propagated by Washington is the border issue. No nation exists without borders and the people pushing for no borders are the globalists who do not want nation states to exist. God made nations with boundaries which He forbids moving boundary stones/markers.
“and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation.” Acts 17:26
God did not make nations to abandon their borders. Two world wars were fought over national borders, and the current Russian Ukraine war Israel Hamas war is over borders, so where is this going. Here is one possibility:
“Off-The-Rails Psychologically” – The Democratic Party Will Do Anything To Avert Losing Control Of Govt. So, now I will tell you where all this is actually going: “Joe Biden” will seize an excuse to declare a national emergency and subject the US to some manner of martial law. The excuse could be an outbreak of violence in the quarrel between the states and the feds over the border. Or it could be a widening of the war in the Middle East, a direct confrontation with Iran that would draw in Russia and Turkey and kickoff World War Three, a war we would have an excellent shot at losing, considering our DEI-ravaged, over-vaxxed army, our obsolete naval carrier groups that can be sunk by hypersonic missiles, and our depleted reserves of armaments already fobbed off by Ukraine and, lately, given to Israel in the Gaza campaign to destroy Hamas. If such a war didn’t set off a world-ending exchange of nukes, it would at least collapse the economies of Europe and America and, with that, many governments, including possibly ours. And what role might all those recently-arrived illegal aliens play in such a fiasco? Any way you cut it, we’d be in for chaos and hardship.” https://www.zerohedge.com/
It is true that the World Economic Forum, and globalist organizations have for many years said that the United States must be diminished or taken down for there to be a one world government or economy. It is hard for us to imagine that they can be that cold hearted to want to destroy a nation. The Atlantic had this article in 1946 about world government:
“March 1946 Issue: THE reason for the remarkable growth of opinion in recent months in favor of world government is not that anyone likes government — world, national, or local — for its own sake. It is that many people have become convinced that unless we set up promptly an enforceable world law to control the new weapons of mass destruction, we shall find ourselves in an atomic armaments race which will eventuate in atomic war.” https://www.theatlantic.com/
There is a great body of research and documents since 1946 that is pushing for a world government. Here is an article from last year that dives into the subject:
“Will the U.S. survive under a world government? Sep 26, 2023. A one-world government has been the dream of many people across the globe for a long time. Some think of the United Nations as a world government, but it is not. It is, however, along with many others, favoring one. This idea is called The Great Reset. This is not a new development. It has been around since at least 1992, and some say 1971 when the World Economic Forum, which was originally founded as the European Management Forum, came into existence.
And its critics say that if The Great Reset takes place, the American form of government of mostly free markets, personal freedoms and a somewhat-limited federal government with open elections will be replaced with a world body that does not support the conservative ideals of the United States, like private ownership of property, individual choice, and free enterprise. Its ballot box will provide only one choice. That system is commonly referred to as “communism.” https://www.bdtonline.com/
The final world government is a failed government. The United States was made great because of the Judeo-Christian worldview. The nation suffers from depreciating and desecrating the very God and system of government that actually works. The final world government can never work because it is based on a false premise. Danial 2 says that it is a divided kingdom and Jesus said that a nation divided cannot stand.
“In that you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, it will be a divided kingdom; but it will have in it the toughness of iron, inasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with common clay.”
The Great Reset will be the Great Failure! Jesus predicted that the last days would be filled with violence, war, and disorder. That is the world we are facing today! The United States cannot survive without a revival of truth, a revival of the Judeo-Christian worldview and all that it contains! Luke 21 and Matthew 24 give us Jesus’ teaching on the rise of the New World Order that fails, it can’t even make it past seven years. We have much to rejoice over when God will not allow Satan more than seven years to try his best at governing the planet. I don’t know how we are going to keep from laughing our heads off at the failure of Satan in those seven years. As we prepare in heaven during that seven years to return with Jesus to take over, our confidence will grow immensely. I think Jesus wants us to have that kind of confidence today as we fight the good fight of faith!
