In Revelation 12 and 13, Jesus revealed to John what the last kingdom of man would look like on the earth. We are fast approaching it – but many do not recognize it because it is so often couched in economic and political terms and many think anything of God must be religious in nature. But, it is spiritual in nature because it is all about God’s final plan for man. Jesus summed it all up in two portions of Scripture – the Lord’s Prayer and Psalm 2.
“And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. …” – Luke 11:2-4 (The 1st step in all prayer.)
“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. …. “ – Psalm 2:1-12
God goes on to say that He has set His Son on the throne and He alone will rule over all kingdoms and all political parties – whether they like it or not!
Jesus predicted that in the ‘end-days’ many false prophets would arise, and they are not all religious – some are politicians.
“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.” – Matt. 24:11
Bernie Sanders, socialist Senator from Vermont boldly shouted “”Now obviously nobody can predict exactly how many people will die if they lose their coverage. Nobody can make that prediction,” Sanders said at a rally in Morgantown, W.Va. “But what experts at the Harvard School of Public Health estimate, is that if 23 million Americans were to be thrown off the insurance they currently have, which is what the House bill would do, up to 28,000 Americans every single year could die.” (Freebeacon.com). He went on to say in other speeches that Republicans would kill more each year than 9/11 did.
He does not declare how many will die each year regardless of the medical plan they have or how many on Obama Care cannot afford treatment because of the increasing co-pay they will need! His words are designed to inflame his base encouraging them to violent un-American actions.
Similar rhetoric has already caused a Sander’s follower to attack Republican congressmen, injuring several. And Sanders claims he is not responsible because he doesn’t advocate violence? Yet he continues around the country accusing Republicans of trying to kill thousands of people. Is he not smart enough to realize this may stir some to violent action? This is irresponsible at best, especially when his accusations are patently untrue!
These are the kind of actions that Hitler used to advance his agenda. He preached against all the problems of the German people and then accused Jews of causing all the problems. Hitler was a socialist too. I notice that Sanders, and many Democrats, who blame the rich Republicans for causing all the problems, whether they are economic or healthcare, are rich themselves and they have voted themselves Cadillac healthcare benefits! Why is it that most of the large cities that are in financial trouble today are run by Democrats operating on socialist principles? They have left the principles of God and have moved into the humanistic principles of the Antichrist system passed down through the four kingdoms God showed to the prophet Daniel. The groundwork for the government of the Antichrist is being laid right now.
“The sad realization is that the world-view of these four kingdoms, revealed to us by God, has successfully infiltrated our educational systems. They have moved us from self sufficiency and trust in God to socialism, welfare, and trust in government for our needs. The religion of Humanism and the doctrine of Evolution have blinded many to the truth contained only in God’s word. Modern society’s only answer to depravity and moral decadence is to accept it and make it legal rather than God’s answer to condemn it but give a way to be delivered from it, which is faith in Jesus Christ. Modern society offers only slavery to sin and government, but God offers deliverance and freedom. The world-view of these kingdoms use political correctness to stifle any disagreement because they cannot use truth to support their plan.” – (excerpt from The Four Beasts of Rev. 13.)
The answer to poverty is not welfare and socialism, it is as God stated in Scriptures –
“I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.” – Psalm 37:25
“For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.” – 1 Thes. 3:10
“The wicked is banished in his wickedness, But the righteous has a refuge in his death. Wisdom rests in the heart of him who has understanding, But what is in the heart of fools is made known. Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people“ – Prov. 14:32-34
Only one thing is required for good government – righteous living! Righteousness comes from God and obeying His principles. Many in government have forgotten or rejected these simple truths and so are to be classified as “fools”.
We have previously finished Revelation 12 and 13, which introduced the Antichrist and the False Prophet. The Apostle Paul gives us the final thought I wish to finish this article with. He reveals the outcome of ‘lawlessness’ – the act of rejecting God and His principles –
“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” – 2 Thes. 2:7-12
Of course, the “lawless one” is the Antichrist but, the way for his arrival is prepared by those who did not receive the love of the truth (God’s truth) and had pleasure in unrighteousness. This is serious! Because God Himself will send them “strong delusion” so they can be deceived! The socialists and the left wing Democrat and Republican politicians are preparing the way for Antichrist!
God is the author of life. He designed our sexual orientation and He ordained marriage between a man and a woman. Does anyone seriously think they can back abortion, or homosexuality, or redefining the concept of marriage and not receive God’s righteous judgment? If you are in a church that does not believe this – get out! Find a fellowship that preaches the truth. Or if you don’t believe my message, then hear the last message of the Book of Revelation which is given specifically to you –
“And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” – Rev. 22:10, 11
In other words, if you want to be unrighteous, go on, be more unrighteous – because you don’t have long! But, if you want to be righteous, go on and strive to be more righteous!
