The State of the End Times World I

one world

It was decided last week to publish an overview of what the state of the end times world is.

So, here are three areas ETPR covered.

[NOTE: The following is based on the Word of God and NOT on ‘esteemed Bible teachers’ and the like.]

THE WORLD

God’s Word tells us that there will be a one-world government ruling the earth in the last days. The man of sin will eventually seize power from this government and rule the world.

“Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.”
–Daniel 7:23

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”
–Revelation 13:7

That government has ruled the world for almost eighty years (or since it took command after WWII in 1945). It rules the earth to the present day. The reader needs only pay close attention to world events to confirm this: the behaviors of nations which are supposedly at each other’s throats are strange behaviors indeed for nations which are supposedly mortal enemies.

THE DEADLY HEAD WOUND OF THE BEAST

Many ‘esteemed Bible scholars and teachers’ have spent YEARS trying to convince folks that the beast is a MAN and that a MAN will suffer a deadly head wound and recover.

What does God’s Word have to say on the matter?

“And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.”
–Revelation 13:2

God’s Word does refer to both KINGS and KINGDOMS as “beasts.” Which is which is determined by the CONTEXT of the verse used.

In Revelation 13:2, CLEARLY the reference is to a KINGDOM, NOT a MAN.

FIRST, Revelation 13:2 refers to Daniel 7’s four beasts (which are KINGDOMS).

SECOND, is there ANY KING who has seven heads?

“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.”
–Revelation 13:3

One of the world’s most powerful nations APPEARS to suffer a deadly head wound. The ‘wound‘ is later healed and the whole world thinks this nation is the best thing since sliced bread to happen to man. When the reader sees (or hears) of this powerful country being taken down, he should GENUINELY seek the LORD–not much time is left.

1- It is important for the reader to know that this nation does NOT really suffer a deadly head wound, but only “as if” it suffered such a wound.

2- God’s Word offers a clue as to HOW this wound happens in Revelation 13:14.

“And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”

“…wound by a sword…”

When God refers to a country being consumed by war he often refers to WAR as a “sword.”

So, a VERY powerful country APPEARS to be beaten very badly in war–but recovers.

Does the reader know of any VERY powerful countries which are seemingly threatened by lower-tier nations?

THE MAN OF SIN DOES MANY FALSE MIRACLES AND LYING WONDERS

One way the man of sin convinces MAN that he is the Messiah, is that he apparently does MANY wonders and miracles.

What does God’s Word have to say about the matter?

“And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”
–Revelation 13:12-14

Jesus Himself issued a few warnings about this circumstance.

“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”
–Matthew 24:11

“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
–Matthew 24:24

Scripture also contains other warnings.

“Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie”
–2THESSALONIANS 2:9-11

“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”
–Revelation 19:20

So the man of sin is able to do false signs and lying wonders. By these lying wonders are MEN convinced that the man of sin if the real deal (the Messiah).

The NEXT State of the End Times World will cover OTHER circumstances of the last days–God willing.

DOES the reader believe the Word of God?

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.

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.”
-–Romans 1:16

On One Side Are Witches, Wizards and ALL Who Consult Familiar or Demonic Spirits; On the Other Are the VERY Clear Promises of God

DEMONS vs GOD's WORD

MANY are those who feel they are “beating the system” by consulting familiar or demonic spirits.

FEW are those who KNOW better.

The FEW are those who BELIEVE God’s Word to be TRUE.

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD”
–Deuteronomy 18:10-12

On one side are the trinkets and parlor games which those who consult demonic spirits reap; on the other side are the very clear promises of God to ALL who resist such blandishments.

“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
–Luke 10:19

“And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”
–Romans 16:20

“And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.”
–Matthew 10:1

“And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits”
–Mark 6:7

Yes, some of the accounts are what Jesus said to the original twelve disciples. BUT, those promises were the first ones made for generations of followers of Jesus Christ.

On one side are ALL who consult with illegitimate supernatural power.

MORE: Illegitimate Supernatural Power is Quite Common in the End Times

MORE:  END TIMES SURVIVAL: We Fight Spiritual Battles, Not Physical Ones

On the other side are all of those who, down through the centuries, have stood on the very clear promises of God.

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
–Ephesians 6:11-13

The world has taken to promoting the demonic (devils) by the unfulfilled promise of FUN!

Believers know that such promises are come-ons for those who traffic in self-destruction.

WHICH side is the reader on?

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.

End Times Conundrum

QUESTIONS

“Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble”
–Psalm 107:6

One of the real head-scratchers of the last days is that SOME men–who shunned the Word of God during good times–will turn to the Word of God as they run out of other options.

It is NOT as though such men are SINCERELY, GENUINELY seeking God: they just seem to be saying, “Hey!  NOTHING seems to work. I’ve tried everything else–I might as well try this too!

And so, this is the REAL last days puzzle: Why do some men (who think the Word of God is for primitive believers) turn to the Word of God when all else fails?

Perhaps they have run out of things to try?

Perhaps they believe “It works for some…It might work for me!”?

Perhaps they really don’t have any other options?  Maybe they are stalling for a little time?

FOR WHATEVER THEIR REASONS: those who turn to God’s Word for answers when earlier, they thought God’s Word was for the simple-minded, are likely to be disappointed.

God is looking for a people who will worship Him as God–NOT for a people who don’t have any other answers.

[That doesn’t mean that God MIGHT not bestow His GREAT mercy on one or two of the faithless.  He MIGHT.]

Turn to God’s Word BEFORE it becomes clear that the ‘other ways’ DO NOT work.

Do NOT suffer the great disappointments of the ‘prepper.’

The reader needs to switch SIDES, not methods.

TO WHOM will the reader turn in times of great chaos and disruption?

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.
