Some people involve themselves with the past and all that it can teach them. Those involved in tomorrow’s affairs study the futures markets and observe the prophets and prognosticators in every detail.
According to the Bible, the great crowd of people in between seek picayune pursuits with no gravitas or importance, even as the foundations of their world begin to crack and crumble.
Jesus said, “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying, and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark.” (Mt 24: 37-38)
With mindless daily dither and blather, the world around them is miniscule, and often only as big as the bubble of their own making.
Even if Jesus never said it, anyone with an ounce of perception and not too busy can see the shape, or the contorted shape, of the modern world.
The west is now represented by a barely cognizant old man who, without honor or integrity, allowed cheaters to place him in office. Then there is the do-nothing border czar that largely ignores the border—his chief aid.
Countries in the southern part of the western hemisphere are banana republics and dictatorships who oppress and starve their own. They are then driven to break into the United States not so much for freedom but for free stuff.
In the northern part of the hemisphere, there is a black faced bi-lingual sotte, much like ancient King Nebuchadnezzar, who wandered the fields like a breed of cattle and ate grass, but black face fancies himself a benevolent ruler, then proceeds to bark at and chase big trucks like the neighborhood dog.
While this transpires, the biblically named trio of soon-to-be attackers of Israel—Russia, China, and Iran—are flexing their muscles like hungry wolves howling at the moon in discontent with the scope of their own territories and domains.
And yet, it is not just the rulers of the day that are sinking, but the demons have captured the minds of entire nations.
Homosexuality has burgeoned into waves of transgenderism and unending depths of depravity and reprobation. Some of it is now protected by equality laws which are precursors to the one who will eventually be named the “Lawless One” not because he has no laws, but because he makes himself the only law.
When we have given up enough of our children to liberal professors, the LGBT, TikTok, and general confusion, it will settle for a short season. Then, like a tsunami, the waves will collect, and from the distance will bring the weight and fury of the ocean—unstoppable and deadly.
We have run the course with Bible schools and seminaries, and there is little time to create the great universal school of eschatology. It suffices to say, that few would enroll, even fewer would believe and almost none would heed.
But here is the heart of the matter in all its plainness and simplicity.
When Russia, China, Iran, and their allies unite to invade Israel, they will fall. Not one person engaged against Israel will survive.
There will be no World War Three—only Armageddon. To wit:
They will fall in the great plains of Esdraelon about 55 miles north of Jerusalem.
The coming world dictator will have his time, but he too will fall.
The world thinks it acts apart from and independently from the God of Creation, but they are miserably mistaken. As the passage indicates, it is God alone who gathers them to meet their fate.
But God does not act against anyone without provocation. Like the gambler, this world must throw down the bet, the stake, the earnest money, to enter the game.
The Apostle James makes this very clear.
This rule is for individuals and nations. Russia, China, and Iran will see what this means in the coming day.
