We just returned from a trip to Crane, Missouri, near Branson. The purpose of the trip was to tape four programs for Skywatch-TV, Tom Horn’s up-and-coming television production that covers an ever-widening range of biblical topics. The program concentrates especially on matters as they relate to esoteric things going on behind the scene and to today’s societal and cultural developments.
Their expanding television and ministry facilities are impressive, with much more to come, Tom explained. My traveling companion and great friend, Mike Hile, as always, enjoyed the warm hospitality.
More than that, the conversations, both in private with the Skywatch folks and during actually taping the programs, was stimulating, although profoundly troubling in what the future might hold for the nation and the world in the immediate future.
At the same time, there was the interjection of what is just ahead in the magnificent future that awaits those who believe and trust the promises from God’s Word.
The programs center on two books that are upcoming. The first is a book authored by my good friend Tom Horn and myself with the title Antichrist and the Final Solution. The other is the new book by my good friend, Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis. The title of his book is Collision Course: The Fight to Reclaim Our Moral Compass Before It Is Too Late. Bob is a retired army officer, Pentagon think-tank consultant, and frequent contributor to Fox News.
Many things came from the interview that emerged to the surface as we probed a number of important signals that this generation is deeply into the last of the last days.
The one thing that struck me in our on-air conversations as the single most relevant development was the way many people across America today seem to be in an almost hypnotic state. By that, I mean they seem to have lost the ability to discern—to delineate—between things of fact and fiction in matters that impact how we live and interact.
The one example that strikes me in this regard is the matter of wearing face masks. More and more, this is proving to be more detrimental than beneficial. Breathing one’s own carbon dioxide, for example, can lead to oxygenation problems in the blood as well as bacterial infections. Face masks can also have a cultural ill effect in that they prevent us from seeing facial expressions in our social interaction –something that goes against the freedom to “know” each other as God created humankind to do.
A nation divided against itself cannot stand, as Lincoln put it, based upon Jesus’ words. We have been divided by the insistence of the CDC—in effect, by one doctor within that organization.
People are divided in our nation as never before in this way.
It has caused problems. For example, on numerous occasions I’ve witnessed developing confrontations. I’ve noticed more and more that people wearing masks in public verbally chastise others for not doing so. Total strangers are increasingly at odds over whether to wear the masks or not. It is beginning to take on the same kind of confrontation as is seen in road rage. People are divided in this way, and I’m convinced this is a deliberate part of a master plan.
The master plan, although carried out by those such as the CDC as they insist on mask-wearing, etc., is in fact being orchestrated by Satan. And, it seems to be working.
If there was ever a question of whether an entire population could be brought under a delusion such as that prophesied in 2 Thessalonians 2, there should no longer be much doubt.
People in these days of COVID-19 have been shown to be lemmings in slavish adherence to total shutdown of life’s activities. They will wear the masks, lose their jobs, let their children be ruined by keeping them from school, and be subject to a plethora of other deleterious societal, cultural, and even physiological and psychological dictates.
This is perhaps the primary realization that came from my participation on the programs we taped. We don’t have to wonder whether people could actually be brought under such a delusion as prophesied by the apostle Paul. We are already seeing that delusion taking shape, I think. The master planner is at work. His minions are at work, too.
As we reach the conclusion of human history, we are seeing develop that grand delusion—the big lie—that will eventually enslave the earth’s populations. People are being prepared—being mesmerized, at least in my opinion—for what is to come when the restraining work of the Holy Spirit is no longer in effect as it is prior to the Rapture of the Church.
Lt. Col. Maginnis revealed many things within Washington DC about what is going on behind the scenes. There are dark forces at work that even eclipse what we know from the surface evil perpetrated by what has become known as the deep state.
He also repeatedly offered the biblical prescription for staving off, at least for a time, the onset of the great delusion that is surely coming.
The upcoming election is crucial. That has been said about every election we’ve had, particularly in recent decades. But this one is truly the most critical, Bob and I believe.
The prescription for retarding the progression of that delusion disease as the conclusion of the age nears is the one God has given us to take to heart. That, of course, is 2 Chronicles 7: 14.
Let us all pray that holy prescription at every opportunity in these upcoming days.
I’ve said before that the results of the upcoming election will show us the path America will take. Perhaps I can also add is that it will show us the path the entire world will take as well, since what happens to the U.S. has a big influence worldwide, though maybe not as much as it once did, it is still considerable.
Here are some possibilities I see if Biden & Company come to power:
1) Lawlessness will increase due to the de-funding of the police and tolerance of the actions of left-wing extremists
2) Continuing fiscal decline as the government seeks to make the people economic slaves depending on government subsidies to survive rather than by income from gainful employment from private industries.
3) De-funding of the military with the resultant dangers that will ensue as we grow weaker and our enemies grow stronger.
4) Eliminating our rights as provided by the Constitution.
5) Embracing “alternate lifestyles” far beyond that of homosexual behavior into perversions we can probably not even imagine and would disgust us to the very core of our being if we could.
6) Moving beyond abortion to eliminating other “undesirables” as defined by the state.
7) increasing electronic surveillance to the point of making any semblance of privacy a forgotten concept.
8) Gaining absolute control of the media.
9) Making a completely cashless society – a prelude to the Antichrist’s 666 system in which one can be arbitrarily excluded for “antisocial behavior,” once again, as defined by the state.
10) Abandoning Israel, leaving it truly on its own (though God has always watched over it).
11) Branding those who oppose all of these things as “enemies of the state” with Bible-believing Christians right on the top of the list and penalizing them accordingly.
I’m not saying all of this will happen at once, but I suspect it’ll make one’s head spin by how fast they DO happen.
“1984” will just end up happening a few decades later than George Orwell thought.
Fortunately for those of us who believe in the Jesus of the Bible, unlike Orwell’s grim novel, our story will have a happy ending.
