How powerful is Satan's poison and false religion so that he blinds the eyes of perhaps 95% of mankind?! On the other hand those who are blessed to have the Holy Spirit can see plain as day what is really happening according to God's prophetic Word. But even many so-called 'Christian' churches are falling out of grace rapidly in the USA as they shy away from telling the truth of the Gospel, including the meaning of sin and lies. Perhaps a few of them will see their failure of duty and 'return to the fold'-- to the Bible, but then the 'separating work' of the angels is in full swing right now, IMHO-- the sheep from the goats.
People who know me are familiar with my mode of explaining things so that both Believers and other interested folks can easily understand what I deem as VERY important in March of 2011 --> forward. Here is the point: If one disaster can put a lot of strain on a country or the world's closely tied economy- supply and demand, oil, food, water, electricity/ power grids, just think about 3 or 4 bad visits of various dire circumstances!! I listen to WVCY Christian radio a lot, 107.7 FM- Milwaukee, which can be had over the InterNet, and read at least 3-4 hours per day, including intense Bible study/ research, and I am STILL learning! I even take notes while listening to Brannon Howse, and Cross Talk, etc. I will be looking into a new book by Bill Koenig: AS AMERICA HAS DONE TO ISRAEL.... if I got that right. Some folks have drawn a 24-48 hour time line from countries who try to hurt Israel-- to natural disasters lately. I don't know if that is true... yet.
Per last nights additional shelling of Israel by their close Islamic neighbors, Hamas, etc-- I have been on the receiving end of 122 mm Viet Cong rockets exploding in my company area on my 1st tour in Vietnam killing some men and wounding others: early 1968, and it is scary because you never know where the next one will land, and there is little you can do about it. Combat Vets carry that emotional stuff with them for the rest of their lives and react differently than their 'civilian' counterparts, and many times they make sport and fun of us Vets. It can and is very traumatic for Vets and others who have been near that kind of death and destruction, and that's why the Veterans have a close knit support group, because few others really care.
And just like a chess game that makes you use your noodle [that gray matter between your ears], the idea is to 'capture' -check the movement of the other person's king-- and that's called checkmate. I am not a real pro, but enjoy playing the game and teaching others. The analogy is that IF you can 'surround' your opponent's king from 3 or 4 different directions with your rooks, knights, bishops or queen, so they have to capitulate because they run out of options or freedom where to move the king- out of danger, YOU WIN the game! So as I said in the beginning of this blog post, one disaster is bad enough--[Check] but 3 or 4 would really work havoc on any nation, especially if they are already on the brink of collapse, USA included [Checkmate]! All we need is another world wide famine or poor wheat harvest, or rice, or what ever, and millions will starve very soon. Same with lack of oil and gas. Same with devaluation of our currency and monetary system! Some folks say that our American dollar will lose about 25% of it's value around the month of May! You get the point? --- and if you don't-- you will, soon.
Those of us who have their ears to the rail road tracks honestly believe that high officials in our own country and people like George Soros are INTENTIONALLY trying to collapse our economy to bring about the 'New World Order' which is also part of Satan's plan. The Bible says the same thing-- yet people remain blind and stupid. OUR job is to sanctify God's holy name, share the Gospel in these last days and set a good, clean, Christian example. We ought often to look at ourselves and compare what the Bible says about everything, and KNOW the Bible well! Brannon Howse says that we also ought to plan and prepare ahead by getting our 'houses in order', and have a bit more put away in case disaster strikes near us, food, water, perhaps a tent, a "B Plan" --to 'get out of Dodge.' I am willing to bet that America will have more than it's share of earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes this year of 2011. I have a 4 by 4 truck with warm clothes in it, and a 'bug out bag,' radios, batteries, flashlights, etc, and DEUCE, the Wonder Dog. Yes, we put our trust in God Almighty and do His will, but it also makes sense to be industrious and plan for emergencies. That's my opinion. But I am ready for the Rapture too!
