Progression of Biblical Prophecy a Tribute to Earth Day

At what rate is Biblical Prophecy being fulfilled is the biggest question occupying the mind of religious man. From the first century until now every generation believed theirs was the last, and rightly so, because it was written in such a way that every successive generation would prepare for Christ’s return. To deal with the world-wide plagues and catastrophic disaster’s in the book of Revelation most have either put them during a seven-year period of the Great Tribulation (either before or after the rapture) or have simply spiritualized the events. To choose the latter would dismiss the wrath of God, and to choose the former would not allow for the natural unfolding of events, but see them all unfolding at an alarming rate, sending the world’s population into panic and extreme shock. On the other hand, what if we interpreted it beyond the confines of a seven-year period where all the Biblical prophecies are being naturally unfolded over a longer period of time that stretches from the first century until all is fulfilled.

To do so should not negate the fact that we must always be ready for Christ’s return at any moment. So, why would we entertain an idea like this, waiting for all Biblical Prophecy to be fulfilled in its time. I believe to do so would immediately open our eyes to see the progression of Biblical Prophecy from the pollution of our oceans to the eventual death of every sea creature. To do so would see the progression of the welfare State to allowing even more of the world’s population to totally depend on the government. To do so would see the technological advancements necessary for controlling the population by assigning a number, a mark, and a way to always know their exact location. To do so would see the progression of introducing more drugs to keep the population slightly sedated and easier to manage. To do so would see the progression of all the plagues and catastrophic disasters caused by the neglect of our world, its ecosystem, and their failure to implement regulations that keep fallen humanity from destroying the earth.

Well, if we refuse the progression of Biblical Prophecy then we will be continually side-tracked and led astray by every so-called Prophet and his or her latest Prophecy. They say that the frog misses the progression of the water’s temperature being slightly increased until it’s too late and the water is already boiling. In the same way, let’s not miss the progression of world events, but do everything we can to be good stewards of our beautiful earth. Let’s not miss the progression, but teach people to work for their living and not become depended upon the State. Let’s not miss the progression, but see the real and present danger of mind-altering drugs. Let’s not miss the progression, but refuse any kind of technology that would track our location or attempt to mark us in some way for our so-called benefit. Let’s not miss the progression.

So just how bad do things need to get before Christ returns? Because no one knows the day or hour, it can be at any time. However, if we conclude that the trumpets and bowls of God’s wrath is real, but happens in a short time frame, then God would need to turn the heat up rather quickly. As we have already seen the plagues and calamities have been progressively gotten worse since the First Century and it would not take much to push the ecosystem beyond repair, to cause a cascade of events. For example, the pollution of the seas (the Second Trumpet) will in its time turn into the mass extinction of all sea life as we know it (The Second Bowl). For another example wars and rumors of war will in its time turn into Armageddon where the Kings of the East decide to attack the West, the epicenter of Christianity and freedom of religion. For example, the pollution of our water supply (the Third Trumpet) will in its time turn into the pollution of all drinking water on a global scale (the Third Bowl). For another example air pollution in many of the great cities around the world (the Fourth Trumpet) will in its time turn into a global epidemic of lung disease and death. In time this pollution will also break down the ozone layer as witnessed in (the Fourth Bowl) causing excessive sun burns, skin cancer and even death. No one would venture outside without protective clothing and face mask.

I hope that you can see from these few examples that end-time prophecy is progressive, God has given us a clear signpost of things to come with ample opportunity to turn things around through repentance of sin, and to stop destroying the earth out of greed, selfishness, and neglect. The capstone to these events is the Beast who will control most of the countries in the world and specifically the Western countries along with the United States of America. Although, we do not know who this end-time Beast is, there have been many over the centuries who could have easily fulfilled his agenda by having total control of the population through buying and selling, and regulating the acceptable State Religion. Of course, this State Religion could easily encompass all religions or none, but worship of the Beast would be mandatory. Although like the examples we saw above, this progression would be so slow that no one (except God’s chosen elect) would know that they are being controlled or worshipping a world leader. Like the analogy of the frog, dear Christian, let’s not be overtaken by concentrating on every little event and missing the big picture.

We will all agree that the Day of the Lord, Christ’s glorious Second Coming, is at hand where things will progress in its time from the sounding of the Trumpets to the pouring out of the bowls of God’s wrath where no one knows the exact time. Although we do know it will move rather slow in its time from partial fulfillment of prophecy to the total destruction of our planet earth as we now know it, moving so slow and methodically that the completing of God’s wrath will be missed by the majority of the population. The world will somehow accept (or miss) the total pollution of the sea, air and water; they will miss the control of the Beast and the world government, they will miss the mark (whatever form it takes), while most will be focused on individual events, they will miss the big picture and will not be ready for the return of Christ. Dear Christian, I look to spare you of that, so prepare today by keeping your eyes open to the progression of prophecy. It’s happening now, open your eyes and see the big picture. We don’t need the scientist to tell us that the earth is in trouble, we simply need to look at the progressiveness of prophecy.

“For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:38-39).

Trump’s Peace Plan for Israel

As the new President Elect Donald Trump is inaugurated in a few days will he eventually win the hearts and minds of all the people? Will he be the standard bearer for all the Western countries? And more importantly will he be able to bring peace to the nation of Israel? Yes, I believe he can and will if he succeeds in following through on his rhetoric of building the strongest and most feared military in the world along with nuclear superiority unmatched by any. He will not be dragged down by every little war on the planet as was the case with ancient Rome and previous administrations. Nor will he be bothered by meaningless Intelligence briefings in areas of little concern for his overall policy. On the other hand, he will give full latitude to such countries like Russia and Turkey to settle their own regional disputes over territory or religious differences in the Middle East. For too long now America has played and paid the part of the world policeman, at times pulling out when things got totally out of control thus gaining the disdain or hatred from the people we promised to help. I can assure you Mr. Trump will change this failed policy allowing him to keep the resources for the building up of this nation both militarily and economically. Furthermore, if his rhetoric holds true concerning rebuilding a nation teetering on excessive debt, crumbling infrastructure, mass (real) unemployment, and seriously lacking in industry then he will have all the resources he needs to exert his power upon the global stage, which is very important if he wants to bring peace to the nation of Israel.

Armageddon and God’s Wrath

Armageddon is no doubt one of the most popular subjects among modern day prophets churning out different prophecies at the speed of light creating ever more confusion among God’s blessed children. I am also including the topic of God’s wrath along with our discussion of Armageddon to help us truly understand God’s dealing with fallen humanity and the war that will end all wars. To fully understand the wrath of God we must allow all of God’s Word to speak to us. There is a wrath that is being poured out on all ungodliness since the First Century. This wrath of God is different in nature in that God simply allows an individual to sink deeper and deeper into the consequences of their own sin. This wrath is explained in detail in Romans 1:18-32 (you may want to take a moment and read these verses before proceeding). We see God letting mankind go three specific times to illustrate that at each point, as man’s depravity increases, his consequences are also increased significantly. God gave them up to their sinful desires; He gave them over to their shameful lusts; and, He gave them over to a depraved mind. As children of light we are not surprised that many countries in the world have now approved same sex marriages sinking deeper into shameful lust and a depraved mind. We should not be surprised at the increase in all manner of wickedness which is driving more people to secular counseling and psychiatric drugs to help them cope with the consequences of their sin.

Middle East Turmoil – A Biblical Perspective

What’s happening in the Middle East? As countries one by one lose their authoritative rulers and new voices trumpet their causes on the global stage the world shutters. Some people rejoice over the promise of freedom, while others seek answers from the ancient text. What’s happening in the Middle East? For over two thousand years the West has feared those in the East. Ancient Rome, the most powerful empire in the world, feared the Parthian warriors whose expert cavalry bowmen had conquered the entire territory from the Euphrates to the Indus. During the Holy Roman Empire the Church and its people also feared the encroachment of Islam into its territories which was countered with the Crusades. There have been many skirmishes between East and West over the years with the culmination of terrorists from the East relentlessly attacking the West.

But now we see something new, instead of attacking the West the people are attacking their own leaders seeking to throw off their old restraints and find a new path. What is really happening in the Middle East? As stated in my blog last week some believe that there will be a new spiritual leader, the Mahdi that will come in the last days to unite all the Muslim nations and dominate the world. There is a call from some to institute Sharia Law not only in the East, but also in the West. Quite clearly they see Islam as the only true religion that can save humanity from certain calamity as it sinks further into the pit of moral degeneration. There is a real fear that as each country’s dictator is overthrown it creates a void to be filled by radical Islam. And it’s this radical element that longs for their spiritual leader to bring all Muslims together in a Holy war against the West.

From a biblical perspective God deals with the entire world and that includes the Muslims. It is written in our sacred text, the Holy Bible, that in the last days when the revived Roman Empire and its political leader is exercising his authority over the entire world, that God’s angel will “pour out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water is dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East.” (Rev. 16:12) Why would God allow this to happen? Are not most of His people living in the West? Before we are too critical of God let’s be clear that the Bible does not say that the kings from the East will defeat the West, nor does it say that West under the leadership of the Antichrist will defeat the kings from the East. What is clear, however, is that he brings them both to the valley of decision – which is also referred to as Armageddon. It is here where the great battle takes place between God and all of fallen humanity. It is very instructive that prior to God destroying all of fallen humanity in this final battle, God issues a final warning to His people. “Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.” (Rev. 16:15)

So here is the point friends, we do not need to fear what is happening in the Middle East, but we do need to fear God who is sitting on His Throne. As the biblical Antichrist begins to exercise his power in the West this country will not become more righteous. On the contrary those in the West will be deceived into thinking that they can build the perfect world without God. They will be deceived into thinking that they can develop their own self righteousness to save the world and defeat their enemies (specifically the hordes from the East). In fact this deception will deepen where the Antichrist will promise to protect Israel, and then break his covenant with her at the last moment. Retrospectively, as the Antichrist tightened his grip on the entire world through miracles signs and wonders the deception will grow. But the truth is man must die to self and trust in God alone for His imputed righteousness. Those who awake to this truth and put on the righteousness of God will “not go naked and be shamefully exposed” at Christ’s magnificent return to earth. Friends, we need to be more concerned about our being ready for the coming of Christ rather than the turmoil in the Middle East.
