When considering CHAOS and CONFUSION as end times tools to be used, one USUALLY thinks of those two belong to the world OR Satan.
And, while the world and the devil certainly uses CHAOS and CONFUSION to herd end times man into his designated spots for the BIG FINALE, God’s Word records that God is NO stranger when it comes to using those two particular utensils.
IN FACT, it is recorded that the armies of God’s enemies will ATTACK EACH OTHER in their deluded attempt at wresting control of the earth from its Creator.
“And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.”
(Lest he express surprise that Ezekiel 38:21 refers to the events at Armageddon, the reader should know that Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 are referring to the return of Jesus Christ and associated events. Gog-Magog is NOT a separate military campaign, as taught by FALSE TEACHERS.
MORE: GOG-MAGOG is Armageddon )
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.”
Lest the reader believe that this is something new, God has MUCH experience at causing CONFUSION and CHAOS in his enemies. So much so, that these enemies of God ATTACK ONE ANOTHER.
“And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow withal: and they cried, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon. And they stood every man in his place round about the camp: and all the host ran, and cried, and fled. And the three hundred blew the trumpets, and the LORD set every man’s sword against his fellow, even throughout all the host: and the host fled to Bethshittah in Zererath, and to the border of Abelmeholah, unto Tabbath.”
“And it came to pass, while Saul talked unto the priest, that the noise that was in the host of the Philistines went on and increased: and Saul said unto the priest, Withdraw thine hand. And Saul and all the people that were with him assembled themselves, and they came to the battle: and, behold, every man’s sword was against his fellow, and there was a very great discomfiture.”
“And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.”
So, while chaos and confusion (and the resulting FEAR) CAN BE used by the enemies of God to achieve their nefarious ends; chaos, confusion and fear are the ORIGINAL tools of God Almighty–and will be utilized by Him during the end times.
(And for all who point to 1CORINTHIANS 14:33 to argue AGAINST this, what EXACTLY does 1CORINTHIANS 14:33 say?
“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”
IF God were somehow fighting in the churches of the saints, He likely would not use confusion as a weapon.
BUT, since God is battling the wicked [and NOT the ‘churches of the saints’], He most definitely will use ALL of His weapons which prove necessary.
And who better to use CHAOS, CONFUSION and FEAR than He who created them?)
The world and Satan certainly do use chaos and confusion and fear during the last days.
However, CHAOS and CONFUSION (and FEAR) are some of God’s most powerful weapons.
DOES the reader associate God with chaos and confusion?
DOES the reader believe that Satan is the master of confusion?
It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
