"And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet."
The world may be on the verge of World War 3. Really. China, Russia, the nations of Europe and the United States have been doing things against each other that looks an awful lot like war. Perhaps one of these days they may even tell their citizens about it! As far as I can tell, as of this morning, China and Russia are both on maximum alert for war and are preparing intensely. The Americans seem to be preparing for a war against its own people but its hard to see because they hide everything from their citizens. NATO is preparing for war. Enemy planes are buzzing our coasts almost daily. Nations that cannot afford to are doing exercises trying to show their power and weaponry to friends and foes alike. Israel has been put in a position that if they attack their threatening enemies nobody could blame them. And, this weekend is the Feast of Trumpets, Yom Teruah, the 'Day of the Awakening Blast'! Are there fire works on our horizon? Stay tuned.
Last week the Chinese sent several warships to Alaska during a trip there by President Obama. Very curious. I'm not sure why Obama was there and even more confused by the Chinese Navy showing up. What was all that about?
Recently, there have been at least 4 explosions at chemical factories in China. These explosions have been described as small nuclear devices going off. What is happening? There have been other explosions in Russia, America, Czechoslovakia and other distant locations. The public in these nations have not yet been told the truth. Just what is going on? The international community keeps talking about a weapon sent from the satellites of the major powers, like the USA, dubbed, "The Rod of God". If this is true we are certainly in a war.
As far as a war going on, nobody has been told yet who is against whom. The sides are lining up though. At least they seem to be. I'm not sure just who the good guys and the bad guys are anymore either. We see people are dying, buildings are exploding and governments jockeying for position. Russia now has 'boots on the ground' in Ukraine and Syria. These moves seem to be the opening salvos in what may be a much larger conflagration. It is not too far fetched to think that we may be looking at the Gog/Magog scenario of Ezekiel 38-39 opening up right before us.
Refugees are leaving Syria at such an alarming rate that the nations of Europe are being brow beaten into accepting them by the hundreds of thousands. They don't like this. They have never liked whole people groups invading their space. Who would? I'm amazed at what I'm seeing.
With all this upheaval my mind keeps coming back to this space weapon destroying things at random. If technology like this is now being used dangerous things will escalate rapidly. If an enemy had the capability of doing this to you, how long would you take to retaliate? Could this 'Rod of God' be what John witnessed on the Isle of Patmos?
Revelation 13:13, "And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,"
This Rosh HaShanah, the Feast of Trumpets, is very important for me. Many things the Lord has been telling me to share with people seem to be coming at us like a flood. Whether it be the economy, wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes, volcanoes, meteors, floods, marshall law and/or FEMA camps, our lives could change dramatically at a moments notice. Our hearts must be prepared. Job one for us, those who know the Lord as their Savior and King, must be to remain vigilant in exposing the evil and pointing the way for everyone to Yeshua, the soon coming Lord of Lords and King of Kings. This is the time, if all these things are bearing down on us, to stand strong in our defense of the Gospel of Messiah and the defense of His Word. Be encouraged, remembering, we know in the end we win.
"Therefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Yeshua every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Yeshua HaMashiach is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
