Why We Watch

Again, the commentary is presented from an Amero-centric perspective. The continuation of vantage point is because, indeed, at this particular time in history, America is at the heart of the geopolitical milieu.

Much of what has happened, and is happening at present, has been or is influenced by the actions of those in control of the government of the United States. For example, when Donald Trump was president, Russian leader Vladimir Putin held in check his aggressive nature. Or at least the Restrainer, the Holy Spirit, did so. At any rate, Putin threatened Ukraine because of its leaders’ talking about joining NATO on occasion. Mr. Trump is said to have let it be known (I don’t find the exact quote) that if Putin invaded Ukraine, Moscow would be the target for being nuked. Trump didn’t hide his intentions. He was blunt and always followed through on his promises/threats – at least for the most part.

Putin realized this, no doubt, and never came close to invading the former Soviet state.

The Trump administration put the Chinese Communist Party leaders on notice that to assault Taiwan or to disrupt American, or any other shipping, in the South China Sea would bring America’s naval might to the area, and it would be used if necessary. As a matter of fact, there was increased American naval presence there during all years of the Trump administration. Xi Jinping, the Chinese Communist dictator, got the message and, again, with Holy Spirit Restraint I’m convinced, thought better than to unleash his missiles, navy, and army upon Taiwan.

The Chinese are known for their patience, however – in waiting for the right opportunities that will inevitably come. Xi Jinping has been watching the Russian invasion and all attendant to it.

He has considered the present American president and his response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. I’m convinced, as stated in previous commentaries, that Xi Jinping will, at some point soon, decide to take over Taiwan, the island state Chinese dictators have long considered to be a part of mainland China.

This might be done sooner rather than later, as it is said. Xi Jinping knows that the American political environment is chaotic – that the Democrat Party is, at this point at least, due to take a drubbing in November elections. If things don’t change drastically, the Presidential elections in 2024 will be calamitous for the Democrat Party also.

Almost certainly, the new governing elements within Congress and then in the White House will bring back strong leadership in direct opposition to all that is going on at present, with the Biden Administration doing all it can to disassemble America as founded – to bring the nation into the globalist sphere. For example, Biden’s immediately on taking office adopted the radical, green demands of the left, thereby severely curtailing the Keystone Pipeline System, making America again dependent on global sources of energy, thus putting the nation under the thumb of the globalist elite.

The November 2022 election change to a pro-America (nationalist) administration will doubtless include a reconfiguration of the U.S. military, with replacement of the present Joint Chiefs of Staff being almost a surety.

I.e., I believe the Communist Chinese leadership very likely might have concluded that now is the opportunity they have longed for since Taiwan broke away in 1945. Another such opportunity might not come until a future such weakened America and western world – thereby with diminished resolve to oppose such aggression – might again come into being.

Now, understand that the above is offered with the absolute assurance that God’s Mighty Hand is in all of it. We know that from God’s Word.

“And now ye know what withholdeth [the Holy Spirit] that he [Antichrist] might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he [the Holy Spirit] who now letteth [restrains] will let [restrain], until he [the Holy Spirit] be taken out of the way.” (2 Thes 2:6-7)   

So why do we “Watch” as our title of the commentary suggests?

Because we are commanded to do so by the Lord Jesus Himself, to begin with…

“And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.” (Mark 13:37)

“And when you see all these things begin to come to pass, look up and lift up your head, for your redemption draws near.” (Luke 21:28)

His command is more than enough to make clear that God wants us to be aware of His impending return to Planet Earth as the moment of that Glorious Appearance nears. He said to look up when we “see all these things begin to come to pass.” The Judaizers of His first coming to present Himself as Israel’s Messiah and King couldn’t see the Truth. Jesus was that Messiah. Christians must not be oblivious. We are commanded to be aware of the time of Christ’s Return to put an end to the carnage that is happening now and is scheduled to take place in Judgment and Wrath during the 7 years of Tribulation.

We are to thus warn those who are lost and headed for Hell of these things to come while witnessing the Loving Gift Offering of God’s only Son in Sacrifice for the sins of mankind.

To know that Bible prophecy tells the end of all things from the beginning does one thing more for the Christian who “watches” as Jesus commanded. It offers comfort and assurance. Assurance that there will not be nuclear exchanges that end civilization. There will not be World War III as so many are fretting about right now. People will be doing all the things of normal life at the very moment of His next intervention into human history. All will be normal for the times in that regard, while the times are chaotic just like in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. Boy howdy! Are we ever at that point in comportment right at this moment?

Jesus, Himself, promised this would be the condition of humanity in just one passage I continue to repeat for all who will listen.

“And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” (Luke 17: 26-30)

The Lord Jesus Gave the most important Promise of all as recorded in the following passage. And remember that “the last day” begins with the Rapture!

“And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6: 40)

    Can you please quote from a more contemporary version of the bible instead of the current one which is difficult to read?

    • The Word is very simple, The Will of Him That sent Me(God the Father)that everyone that seeth the Son(God the Son, Christ Jesus)and believeth on Him(God the Son)may have everlasting life( the Will of the God the Father to mankind.)

      Hi Irisa, I suggest you use Bible sites like Bible.com and select the passages noted in the article.

      Some easier to understand versions are the New King James Version (NKJV), the English Standard Version (ESV) and New American Standard Bible (NASB 1995).

      A lot of people like the New International Version (NIV) but I steer clear because the more recent versions are not as accurate as the older NIV.

    We can all see from a slightly different perspective .We can be looking at the same subject matter but may see different aspects, depending on where we are standing, or what catches our attention first. It may be something nearer or further away- to one side or the other. All may differ in what they actually see, yet may be all right .
    My eyes stuck out like stalks when I read Amos 8:2: The Lord said to Amos , .”Amos. What do you see?” It was many years ago. I suddenly realised at that moment that Amos was seeing a vision. Just like the visions that God had often shown me .Wow. They were not just ‘stuff’ as I had supposed. There was a message in them. I grew quickly from that time onwards. Why did God not just talk to me in plain speech ? I learned why many years later when He said “I can talk to you in words of plain speech , as I am doing now. The reason I do not is for the sake of your humility” Ouch, I thought, but He was not growling at me. I realised that there was a caution in how we should conduct ourselves.
    I am a watchman, appointed by God, by a spectacular vision and I was blessed to be able to stand on the very spot as in the vision , some months later and to recognise the scenery down to the last detail. The vision directed me to watch over the city of Auckland, New Zealand ,where I live and grew up .Imagine my concern when I ‘saw’ planes approaching – big jet passenger planes, all painted Khaki but no other recognisable identification. It was not until some months later ,when I was watching television, that I saw the reports of the 9/11 attack. It took some convincing , by a prophetic friend whom I had told about what I had earlier seen , that it was 9/11 that I had foreseen but not understood. If only…After over 20 years I seem once more to be on the ‘local’ watch and not America, but have seen so much in the meantime of how America has fallen. Like our own country has .Where are her watchmen? However it is not all over yet . America will see revival – something I have written about before -not for the sake of her ‘greatness’ as some speak of, but for the sake of those who will be saved out of it.
    We all have our individual points of view but that should not stop us from seeing what is apparent to others as well.

    I believe we had a four-year “time-out” on the prophetic clock while Donald Trump was president. It restarted after the last election was stolen, putting in Biden whose mental capacity seems to be diminished, making him subject to the worst of thabout e “wokesters” who hate America and the freedom it had up until two years ago.

    Will we get another pause in the clock after the elections this November? We can only wait and see.

    What I’m wondering is, will it really make a difference, even in the short-term? Guess we’ll have to wait and see about that as well.

    What we do know for sure is that God is in charge and history will play out exactly as the Bible tells us.

  4. Ed Wood says:

    TYPO!!

    “subject to the worst of thabout e ‘wokesters'”

    should read subject to the worst of the ‘wokesters'”

    My computer sometimes has a mind of its own!

  5. Harvey says:

    We are all uniquely gifted. We all see from our own peculiar perspective but that should not stop us from trying to see from the perspective of others Our attitudes and understandings are shaped by our personal experiences.
    The most important thing for us to learn when we are born again is to see from God’s perspective.. What is the main thing? Our salvation and the indescribable, never ending future He has in store for those who love Him. Not What happens to America, Ireland, or Russia, nor whether we can afford a holiday next year or get the job we think we deserve. We tend to become a little one-eyed about life as it affects us. God knows what we need and what is good for us. Where do you think America will be in a thousand years time? Will you care? What affects you is what you care about and that tends to be a little transitory..There are unexpected compensations in life which cause us to forget about what was once important.
    . We need to remain balanced in life . Our first obligation is to God and then to wards our fellow man. We do our best about all these things, but rely heavily on God ,praying that His will be done.
