Dire predictions saturate the blogosphere these days. That cyberspace landscape seems loaded with things forecast to come that will, if believed 100 percent, depress even the most optimistic among us.
For example, I heard the past week that China has troops stationed at America’s southern border and is working with Mexican cartel units to invade the US when the time is right. Not only this, but the present US government under the Biden administration is in on the planned action, it is claimed.
On another blog, it is said that both Russia and China are in cahoots and are just biding time to make their moves.
The American cabalists in all of this—the Deep-State types—want this to happen in order to bring the nation down so that the vast American assets can be absorbed by the globalist regime that, I guess, is, putting this whole attack scenario together.
China, so this thinking goes, wants America’s land in order to relieve the overcrowding of China’s 1.4 billion populations.
The assault will supposedly begin with a more virulent biological weapon attack than COVID-19 or any other biological entity to this point. That will be joined by a debilitating cyber destruction of America’s communications infrastructure.
There will then be nuclear attacks on specific military installations within the US and abroad. This is what the drones that have been seen flying about in certain areas are about—to scope out vulnerabilities of US military installations, etc.
In addition, the Biden administration will declare martial law and begin taking away all civil liberties. Somewhere in all this dystopia will be mixed-blue-helmeted United Nation troops to go to every home to confiscate the guns of those who have them. FEMA, of course, has, it is said by the alarmists, long been prepared to incarcerate misguided American patriots who cling to guns, free speech, and Bibles. Such will be escorted to these detention camps in swift and certain lockdown of the nation.
All of this, according to the bloggers, is to fulfill the demonic aspirations of the globalists elite. The so-called New World Order will then, presumably, be able to move forward. It will be unhindered by resistant, gun-toting Bible thumpers and their evil against the change that is necessary to bring peace and prosperity through redistribution of the wealth, thus to spread America’s wealth equally to all peoples and to stop the human (especially the American) carbon-emissions decimation of planet earth.
Best I can figure, the blogger alarmists expect all of this to begin in earnest by no later than the fall. They expect “false-flag” events to precede such action. False-flag events are those in which a government concocts a danger to the public, who then perceives the danger and will therefore be less resistant to, or even accepting of, draconian, governmental actions to save them.
There are so many such predictions in every direction that it’s not possible to include them all in this limited space. And, where there is smoke there is fire, as is said. So there is bound to be at least a miniscule degree of truth in all of the alarmism. Certainly we’ve been forewarned by the Lord through the Apostle Paul, as we have pointed out on numerous occasions. We struggle not against flesh and blood, but against powers, principalities, etc. (Ephesians 6: 12).
The primary blog hosts’ alarms to which I refer claim Bible prophecy as part of their background for their forewarnings. One, in particular, name a couple of anti-Rapture Bible prophecy teachers as mentors in their predictions for Tribulation-level events to come. They believe God’s people will be here to suffer through—and even fight through—these coming terrible times.
These, therefore, are “preppers.” They want you and me to prepare for these bad times, these times of Great Tribulation, so that we can survive the evil about to be unleashed. We can, I infer they’re suggesting, survive that time of Tribulation if we set aside enough food, weapons, gold, silver, etc.
This is why I—rather, God—can assure that these alarmists are wrong.
Jesus Himself said that if He didn’t return as He has said at the end of the Tribulation period, all flesh on earth would die—no amount of prepping could possibly suffice for such a thing!
God’s Word also tells that the kings of the east will be held back from invading the occidental world until the Euphrates is dried up. This will happen late in the seven-year Tribulation era (read Revelation chapters 9 and 16).
Russia, it has now been proved, at least to my satisfaction, will be led by the Gog-spirit-filled leader as he brings the Magog forces against Israel. At that time, the Western alliance of nations—including America (“young lions”)—will apparently be present in a coalition of some sort to protest that movement toward Israel (read Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39).
America is in the occidental world. China is divinely forbidden from making any sort of massive invasion of such a powerful nation as America currently is, according to Bible prophecy. Likewise, Russia isn’t so foolish as to think a land invasion of the United States is possible without, first, complete nuclear devastation taking place. That destruction, in such case, would take place in both Russia and America—and, almost certainly, to the rest of the world as well.
Now, am I saying that the United States is safe from severe ramifications of the geopolitical evil going on? No. America is likely overdue for heavenly judgment. But that judgment, we can be assured, will take place in God’s timing, not in timing predicted by perhaps well-meaning Internet bloggers.
Before the horrific, worldwide collapse of the human condition takes place as these would have it, the greatest of all events is scheduled by the timing of the One—the only One—who knows the end from the beginning.
That, of course, will be the Rapture of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.
Again, I will never stop using the Scripture that is the heavenly formula—the only formula—for salvation of the soul:
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10)
