It is a fact of history that as societies, cultures and nations become more base (degenerate) and hardened against the living God, they become increasingly vulnerable to godless and demonic (evil) influences. (Luke 4:5-6; Eph. 2:1-2; 6:12; 1 Tim. 4:1-2; Rev. 16:13-16). This trend is a driving force that is setting the stage even now for the world’s final showdown against Almighty God, His sovereign authority and ETERNAL reign on earth and in heaven. This final showdown is called the Battle of Armageddon (Psalm 2; Dan. 2:43-44; Joel 3:2; Zech. 14:2; Rev. 16:13-16). Once the Rapture of the Church takes place, Almighty God’s restraint will be removed (2 Thess. 2:3, 6-8). The dam - as it were - will be removed and the godless, base practices and the unbridled passions of man will be unleashed to flood the world with godlessness and lawlessness. As these awesomely turbulent times of global calamities come to pass, the world will look for a scapegoat. Feelings of anti-Semitism and hatred for Israel will intensify as never before (Matt. 24:12; Rev. 12:17).
6000 years of human history has overwhelmingly demonstrated that when Almighty God and His moral absolutes are left out of the mankind's "godless" equation: death, destruction, tyranny, violence, vice, greed, lawlessness, licentiousness, oppression etc. will reign supreme and knowingly or unknowingly they will be under the tyrannical domain of Lucifer and his fallen angels (Luke 4:6-7, Rom. 1:18-32, 5:12-21, Gal. 5:19-21, Eph. 2:1-2). In the end - for a human being marred by Adam's fall - it is absolutely hopeless without Almighty God our Creator's saving solution which is ONLY found in His Son Jesus Christ. He ALONE is the sole propitiation for ALL humanity (John 3:16-17, Acts 4:12, Rom. 5:12-21, 1 John 2:2).
My friend, if you know not the Savior, may you pray to see the ETERNAL picture and understand your desperate need for redemption and deliverance from your transgressions against your Creator. As these days intensify and enter into the horrific seven year tribulation period which is at hand (Rom. 2:4, Rev. 6-19).
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
