Global order plans are up in the air while the would-be one-world architects plot against the imposition to their plans represented by America’s 45th president. The leader of the free world has made it clear he intends to keep America–at least–free of their insidious grab for America’s wealth through their climate change and other such liberty-diminishing machinations.
The new-world-order builders fear monger that America’s refusal to submit to their plans is a formula for guaranteeing the demise of the planet.
Israel is, as usual, at the center of concern in the minds of the world’s diplomats. This president vowed to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. He then did so. This, the one-worlders rant, put the U.S. stamp of validation upon Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the Jewish state.
This rates as a threat to world peace in the minds of most all U.N. leaders. The Palestinian President declared there would absolutely be no chance of peace between the Palestinians and Israel if this happened. Yet the negotiations continue.
Russia has popped up as a perceived threat so great that some think Vladimir Putin could start World War III before the Trump Administration reaches its conclusion.
Even Christian writers within pre-trib prophecy who are touted to be highly regarded journalists–observers of tensions that might lead to war–fear that Putin is on the verge of starting a conflict that might go nuclear at some point. To me, this flies in the face of things as they are foretold to be at the time of His next intervention into the affairs of mankind (the Rapture). The Lord said it will be a time of life going on possibly more robust than usual at the time He breaks in on the world like a thief in the night (Matthew 24:36-42, Luke 17:26-30).
This prophecy by Christ Himself precludes nuclear war occurring before the Rapture, from my perspective. However, the fear is expressed by some such as Joel Rosenberg that we are likely to, in the immediate future, face war that will take the world out of that think-not time Jesus talked about in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24:44).
The president himself is so feared as an incompetent and out of control by the political left that nearly half the nation seems to be having a collective nervous breakdown in thinking about Trump’s daily activity while in office.
This has been the case since before the president took office. In one instance,a man was arrested in Ithaca, New York for shooting to death a UPS delivery man, then running over the body. He did so, he told those who interrogated him, because he thought the man was Donald Trump, the president-elect.
There are hundreds of reports of people who have become mentally unhinged over the 2016 election result. We remember, for example, the man and his “husband” who verbally assaulted the president’s daughter on a commercial flight, shouting that her father was going to destroy the nation. Those who see the Trump victory as the worst possible thing for life on planet earth, like the globalists and those who have near phobic fears of Russia, continue to see the Trump years as unprecedented threat.
Wall Street and the economic gurus, on the other hand, seem to be seeing an opposite effect regarding Mr. Trump’s rise to power. The years since he took office –despite ups and downs of the stock market– apparently look pretty good to these supposed wizards of the financial world. And, that market has set new records since he took office, showing these vote with their investments as a matter of displaying confidence in his leadership acumen in finance.
Additionally–and this is the most telling, prophetically speaking, I think–the great, collective sigh of relief by other members of American society is overtly obvious. The sigh of the evangelical Christian segment of this half of the American populace leaps out–or should do so–at those who are students of Bible prophecy from the pre-trib view.
We are Thankful to get a “reprieve,” as it has been termed. It appears, at least, that Christians who stand upon biblical principles and openly display their faith have experienced a more tolerant acceptance from this administration and the federal courts that Mr. Trump is shaping as a result. However, it must be noted that along with the sigh of relief there is developing a settling-back into comfortable complacency.
Based upon the level of observation I’ve done and the kinds of email and news stories I receive, it seems to me that the fervency of the prayers of God’s people and concerns for aggressively pursuing a biblically moral agenda is just about nonexistent.
This, to my way of thinking, based upon prophetic Scripture, presents the greatest threat of all as we proceed toward the presidential election of 2020.
Again, Jesus forewarned of just such a time, I believe.
Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. (Matthew 24: 42-44)
For this reason, the threat to the world, populated mostly by those who don’t know Christ for salvation, is at great risk. A complacent church is a threat greater in this way, perhaps, than the threats we most often consider.
Let us vow to make these days, weeks, months and years just ahead a time dedicated to actively carrying out the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20).
